Armenian Genocide by Turkey

I have mixed thoughts about visiting Turkey. Not just the current political turmoil but their past history with the genocide of the Armenians. We grew up with so many Armenian families and friends in the area. They are among my best friends. And the g

Kentucky Derby horses how to bet

Among my friends , I am Horse Racing Guy. I’m the one who, when someone suggests Sunday Brunch, counters with, “Or how about we go to the track?!” Say what you will, but this is definitely better than being Strip Club Guy. Still not as cool as being Boat Guy. But for one weekend a year, being the guy who knows how to bet horses makes you at least a few notches cooler — if only because you can answer the handful of questions that inevitably pop up every time a muggle watches a horse sprint down...

Do You Care About Your Luggage, or Just the Contents Inside the Bag?

Luggage, to me, protects the contents and makes them portable. Ideally a bag is durable, easy to maneuver, and the right size -- if it's a carry on bag then it should fit in airplane overhead bins (ideally even large regional jet bins). Your bag should be sturdy enough to withstand the beating it gets from continued use and the abuse of being overstuffed. If checked it should be able to withstand the abuse it gets from baggage handlers, weather outside on the tarmac, and the TSA. How do you fe...

Pressing, and for some perplexing changes that will continue apace long after the pomp and circumstance of the last few days has passed.
