Safer internet day has made me reminisce about my childhood and how grateful I am to have been born in an era where none of my embarrassing trends or attempts to fit in would be eternally documented online. There is every chance the internet will outlive humans, so theoretically, I could have been a source… Continue reading SAFER INTERNET DAY #SID
I'm not sure where USA tax monies are spent. I didn't get the vibe that they were spent or invested in healthcare, or siphoned into welfare and addressing the great wealth disparity.... in fact, I never really thought about it until I visited the country.

One hour outside the Grand Canyon is a drive through park where you can see REAL LIVE BEARS coming up to your car!!! I've never seen… Continue reading Grand Canyon to Vegas via Bearizona

An early morning IN THE COLD is high up on my list of most unpleasant things… Continue reading The Grand Canyon – Grander than pictures would have you believe.

Best Western at 29 Palms provided a delicious hot breakfast and it was included in their regular price. It was such a nice place!! I… Continue reading Oatman, Arizona and Historical Route 66
