Hamilton NJ, sculpture capital of the world

I don’t know if Hamilton Township in NJ is the sculpture capital of the world, but it’s probably pretty dang close. I didn’t even know about Hamilton’s Grounds for Sculpture. I didn’t even know Hamilton, NJ existed. So, it was quite a wonderful, little surprise to see these sculptures as we drove to the NJ […]

The queen shops

Finished at our first stop on the Grand Whoosh Tour of NYC, we headed to lunch and to Pearl River Market back in Manhattan on Broadway. Before shopping, we needed to eat. Originally, I had planned to check out Mario Batali’s new gastro pub, The Spotted Pig. But, the duchess is a vegetarian. Oopsie. We […]

Sunday in Houston: It is balloon!

Sunday in Houston found us grabbing some Barstuks for chai and Old Town Kolaches for some Sunday breakfast kolache goodness. It’s pronounced co-lah-chee. On the way the queen informed me of a sighting. Yes, a sighting. These days such a sighting is rare. As such, it was imperative to grab a camera and document the […]

Sunday in Houston: Bagels

We interrupt the epic road trip out west for a Sunday Houston post. Just because you take a mega trip doesn’t mean the home stuff ceases to exist. Today we talk about bagels. I do not consider myself a ‘foodie’. I like food, but the sophistication of my palate would rival a 10 year old, […]

Sunday in Houston

Ok, once again, it’s a Sunday in Houston post and it’s not Sunday. But, these pics were taken on a Sunday. Ergo, there ya go. Earlier this year, these statues, which reside at the west end of Allen Parkway, were unveiled. This always reminds me of the George Carlin observation wondering why we drive on […]

Sunday in Houston: Op art at the MFA

Ok, so today is Tuesday, not Sunday. You know this because you’re paying attention. Unless, of course, you think it’s Monday because somehow you’ve lost a day or you think it’s Wednesday because you really want it to be Friday, and Wednesday is closer to Friday than Tuesday. If that’s the case, then I’m here […]

Sunday in Houston

As promised, a business balloon this Sunday. Not just any balloon, a patriotic bunny. Looks like that could have been the flag flying over Fort McHenry. Can you see the rockets red glare? The bombs bursting in air? Holidays and business balloons go together. Like peas and carrots. This bunny was sitting atop the 59 […]

NOLA – BK

BK – That’s “before Katrina” In May of 2005 we visited New Orleans. The queen was there for the Saints and Sinners Fest – a GLBT writing symposium with workshops and presentations by published gay writers. I was there just to be going to N’awlins. It was a fun trip. Five months later, New Orleans […]

Imagine the past

Having been remiss in blogging about our recent trip to a retreat in Asheville, NC (I’ll get around to that soon-ish) I figured I’d wax nostalgic about a trip of yore, back in the day when Firefox was starting to gain ground but wasn’t quite the polished web presence it is today. We’re talking 2005. […]
