Like many across the country, our home is practicing social distancing and being quarantined at home. I thought I’d share our situation and perhaps you might share yours in the comments below. Normally I am on the road working disaster response and recovery at the location of the event, but not this time. Last Wednesday […]

Are We Overreacting to COVID-19?

Tuesday , 17, March 2020 Comments Off on Are We Overreacting to COVID-19?

Interesting timing on this article (go read it, I’ll wait here) as just yesterday I had a friend of mine ask (via text) a lot of these same questions, which essentially boil down to, “Is this all just a huge overreaction?” It’s a fair question and, given some of the extreme provisions that have been […]

Novel Coronavirus

Monday , 16, March 2020 Comments Off on Novel Coronavirus

When I first heard about the Novel Coronavirus, I thought it was new book about a worldwide pandemic. Turns out, this is a “book” I don’t want to read.

Thursday , 12, March 2020 Comments Off on Flying The Friendly Skies of COVID-19

A week from tomorrow I fly from San Juan to Orlando, a flight I’ve taken many times in the past almost-two-years that I’ve been working here on The Enchanted Island. Regardless of whether I’ve taken the 5am flight out or the later 6:20am flight out, one thing has remained consistent; the plane is always full. […]

Monday , 26, March 2018 Comments Off on World Water Day 2018

Last Thursday, March 22nd, was World Water Day 2018. I missed posting about it then, but I don’t want to wait a year until the next one, so here are a few things I have to say about World Water Day 2018. It’s hard sometimes for us to imagine water as something we need to […]

I enjoyed lunch at Panera today with two of my co-workers. After I filled my cup with unsweetened black iced tea, I noticed the cup looked a little different. Upon closer inspection, I found this rundown of how many teaspoons (teaspoons are easier than grams) of added sugar are in a drink that size, with […]

Monday , 1, June 2015 Comments Off on Product Review – Omega-3 Supreme 1400 mg Fish Oil Concentrate

I signed up with a couple of months ago. Tomson links businesses who want to get word of mouth out about their products to bloggers and target audiences. Last month I accepted an offer to receive a free 180 count bottle of Omega-3 Supreme 1400 mg Fish Oil Concentrate in exchange for a review. […]

April was a busy month with a variety of good and bad events, which pretty well sums up life in general, doesn’t it? We ended March and began April with a trip to Daytona Beach for our 18th wedding anniversary. But we got a hint of what April might bring when we had to rush […]

Recently I had to get a new driver’s license and the Department of Motor Vehicles asked if I would like to be an organ donor, a question I’ve been asked before in years past. My answer has always been, “Yes!” I have long been a person who does not care what happens to my body […]
