Fly Geyser In Nevada, An Accidental But Colorful Creation

Fly Geyser in Nevada on the edge of Black Rock Desert, was an accidental creation in the search for geothermal energy. During a well drilling in 1964, water with dissolved minerals started rising out of the hole. After the excavation, either the boring was left unplugged or was not capped correctly. Over time a travertine mound was created, with the mineral laden water. The rocks would become covered in multiple hues of green and red. It is our 25th stop in the United States based travel series...

Cruising with Holland America: What the Experience is Really Like

As I sail with more cruise lines, the ability to compare and contrast more accurately increases but that also has a strange side effect. It affects my opinions on all cruise lines in the process, forcing me to rethink past cruise experiences as well as rethink future decisions when it comes time to hop on a ship to see another amazing part of the world. I had a lot of preconceptions about what cruising with Holland America Line would be like and, for the most part, those preconceptions weren’t ...

New Berlin Wall section found

While out for a leisurely stroll in Berlin, a group of people noticed something unusual behind the bushes at the edge of the Südpanke-Park: a 65.6-foot section of the Berlin Wall. At first, officials from the Berlin Wall Foundation were confused by the discovery, since this section didn’t have the typical curved top like the rest of the wall did. After analysis, however, they were able to identify it as part of a shorter wall separating the “death strip” — a buffer zone where watchtowers were...

Silent Song

                                  I am spoiled. I have a good life. I have a family who loves me, food to eat, a roof over my head. I am healthy and in no pain. I have running water, more than enough to water the flowers in my garden. I am safe, bombs are not falling from the sky. Decisions are easy- what should I make for dinner? Do you want me to take that to the post office? Would you like sugar in your tea?   When I had ovarian cancer, I was still spoiled, I lived. There was medicine readil...

Debates all bartenders have

I wouldn’t say that I’m a particularly big Disney fan, but I do have fond memories of reading Disney comics when I was a kid – especially the Donald Duck/Scrooge McDuck ones with the Beagle Boys – and I really like the recent Mickey Mouse animated shorts the company has produced (watch the first 10 shorts here). On the BD side, I’ve been enjoying a fantastic anthology series published by Glénat that sees a variety of BD creators, like Lewis Trondheim and Tebo, offer up takes on Mickey. These ...

Greenhouses - Jardin des Plantes

When I recently visited the « Jardin des Plantes » to have a look on the newly renovated « Gloriette de Buffon », see preceding post, I also decided, for the first time, to visit the greenhouses – the temperature and the humidity that August day was about the same in- as outside. The squarer and higher ones were built 1834-36, the architect was Charles Rouault de Fleury (1801-75). The use of steel and glass was of course quite innovative and it may be interesting to notice that t...

Don't get saucy with me, Bearnaise.

No Bearnaise sauce here. This is the first batch of tomato sauce this season. I trimmed up the tomatoes that had ripened, added a bunch of salt and several bay leaves (also from the garden), and boiled it down. This is pretty much the biggest pot we've got, and it was completely filled when I turned the heat on. Once the sauce is reduced and cooled, I'll run it all through the food mill to remove the skins and seeds. Then it will go into freezer containers. The tomatoes, yellow and red, have s...

Pie is Tarte in French

My mother makes pies ten times a day. The moment my mom reads this she is going to say, "Oh that Corey, I certainly do not." Okay then, at least once a week, usually on a Monday for the family dinner. One thing is certain, my mom is known for her flaky, buttery pie crust. Banana cream, coconut cream, lemon meringue, chocolate, blackberry, apple, apricot... to name a few of the fillings. In France, a pie is called a tarte with an "e" at the end.  There is a bakery in Cassis, called the "La Tarte...

How to Visit Azerbaijan: What to See and Do, and Suggested Itineraries

POSTED: 08/06/18 | August 6th, 2018 I don’t remember the first time I heard about Azerbaijan, but it’s always held an exotic allure to me. Azerbaijan — even the name sounds exotic — a place of…well, I didn’t know what. It just sounded intriguing and off the beaten path. I knew two things about Azerbaijan before I visited: it won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2011 and has a lot of oil money. It was only in the last few years that I began to think in earnest about visiting. But years passed wit...
