ACS Conference ~ Nashville

 

It’s coming in a couple days and I’m getting excited.  Last year, we were in Baltimore (where the above photo was taken).

I’ve got my banana shirts ready, my yellow cowboy hat, my yellow bandana and my handlebar mustache (don’t ask!).

I got the menu and I’m so ready…

This is the first of four trips between now and mid-September:  Nashville, New York, Inverness (Scotland) and  NYC cruise to Bermuda.  That first New York was supposed to happen right at the end of the Nashville trip and I’m glad it got backed up a couple weeks so there’s time to unpack.

More on this one when we get back.

Happy 50th Anniversary, Barbados!

Happy birthday Barbados!

The Caribbean island is 50 years old today – more to the point, it’s 50 years since it gained independence from the UK.

There are a few things you may already know about this island of a little more than 280,000 people: it was a center of sugar production, has produced numerous world class cricketers,  the birthplace of rum in 1703 and singer Rihanna…and one of our favorite places to be.
