Natives tell tales of $600 rent for a one bedroom apartment downtown, which is utterly unthinkable, if not downright laughable, in the midst of the current housing boom. Despite these rapidly rising expenses, there’s still a wealth of wildly fla...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: What it’s like to drive in Greece

It’s always interesting to see how people drive in other countries, and my recent trip to Greece was no exception. I didn’t feel like renting a car and driving myself, although the roads are good and many people do. So I hired a nice man named Nikolai to drive us around in a Mercedes sedan owned by his father-in-law, proprietor of Michael’s Taxi Service. According to Nikolai, we always had to wear our masks in the front seat — even though we were in a private car — because the cops could stop an...

Some states are more prone to animal attacks than others, especially ones with large human populations or levels of tourism that encroach on public lands where certain types of animals live.

Food

I seem to take a lot of photos of food, mostly because they bring back good memories. It was nice to eat things I miss when in France, especially with family and friends.

Mostly, just my granddaughter was there for meals but one grandson was occasionally there-heading towards empty nest. My other son with five boys is much more of a pro...

From barbecue to sushi, Galveston’s restaurant scene rivals its legendary beaches

Walking into Maceo’s Spice and Import Co. on Galveston Island is a trip through time. Community tables are scrunched among grocery racks filled with house-made spices and sauces for sale.
