Both loving the country life and looking for cowboys or ranchers to corral, we landed on Dallas Texas.  Growing up in Oregon, I always knew about my cousins in New York, although we only

It's time for the weekly or monthly get-together. You need to choose a venue, something unique and exciting. Nothing too fancy, nor the typical, "let's play pool and sing kereoke".

A "twosome", as in my case,  can consist of meeting 2 celebrities at the same time. The Naked Winery in Hood River, Oregon was

Road  trips are tough, they can either break you, or make you stronger.  Our journey began  early Thursday morning, bounding down the freeway in the
