Aerial Look at Paradise

I will admit it. I am swamped and close to brain dead. The school year has started for teachers in my county and we’ve been pulled in so many directions it painful. I just want to retreat to a place that makes me happy. I give you this amazing video from the Smithsonian Channel of […]

If you got to go…

We know that airline travel at the moment isn’t recommended for most of us unless the need to travel by air is truly important, like business or life and death -not a vacation. We came across a great list published by The Points Guy. The Points Guy, if you don’t follow him, is a travel […]

New Zealand- A Well-Managed Crisis

A well-managed crisis equals normalcy returns quickly. We’ve been in awe recently of New Zealand and how fast they’ve handled crises. I was in awe of how fast an entire country can act when it determines something is a priority.  A month after 50 people were killed in 2019 by a white nationalist opened fire […]

We Have Lift Off!

The second time is the charm for the crew aboard SpaceX’s Dragon perched atop a Falcon 9 rocket as they rode their way into history. A lot has been made out of the launch this past weekend because the US is sending astronauts to space from American soil again. The real reason to be excited […]
