Otakon 2017

Otakon 2017

We (Andrea and I) find ourselves immersed in the world of anime once again. The convention we historically visited in Baltimore moved an hour south to a much larger venue in Washington, DC. We like the chance to share in a celebration of a common fandom, Japanese pop-culture and anime. The really cool part is […]

A Ducky Tour

A Ducky Tour

This past week, my coworkers and I took an hour-long tour of downtown Pittsburgh aboard a 1942 duck boat. I had seen the Just Ducky tour vehicles around town since we moved to Pittsburgh three years ago, but hadn’t been aboard one. This team-building adventure was just the opportunity I needed to take the plunge. […]

From First Flight to the Moon Landing

I often have trouble relating to people, especially the younger they are, the miracle of the moon landing back in July 1969. The miracle of the moon landing was one created by a country, a brilliant team, and three brave men who dared to go where no one had gone before. The footprints left in […]

A Little Road Trip With My Little Sis

A Little Road Trip With My Little Sis

This weekend I took a Memorial Day trip to Toronto with my favorite little sister and assistant Andrea. She was a little disappointed that you don’t get a stamp when you drive into Canada; you only get a passport stamp when you fly in. The trip from Pittsburgh only took 5 1/2 hours. We did find out […]

Marking a Milestone

The following post is not about travel, but about being a couple that is childless by choice. The culture of most of the western world promotes the concepts of marriage and parenthood. We’ve mentioned before that the path of motherhood and fatherhood just isn’t for us, and we don’t regret it one bit. When people, […]
