The Bit in “Plane” View

I just love a good view – from the higher up the better! Earlier this year when I flew from LA to New York, I took advantage of the opportunity to grab a few high elevation shots along the way! Afterwards, I was inspired to take a stroll through my photo collection in search of […]

THE KEEPING IN TOUCH BIT

2019 greetings!  Although we’re well into the New Year, afraid I only just completed my final holiday related chore – I cleared from my living room bookshelf all the delightful cards I’d received from family and friends over the month of December. Yes, I’m a notorious procrastinator.  But I can honestly say I put off […]

Ghost Towns: The Dreams of the Mother Lode Bit

(1848 – Gold is discovered at Sutter’s Mill in California.) Once or twice a year, I used to road trip with friends from Los Angeles to Las Vegas – and two things would invariably happen. First, I wouldn’t get rich playing the slots and would have to road trip straight back to work.  And second, […]

According to Mum, I’ve been roughing it pretty much all my life – although the same was far from true for […]

The Bit Where I Turn Five!

The Tea Timing Bit

Happy New Year!  So has everyone survived the holidays?  My season was full to the brim with planning, shopping, parties, events and a week-long road trip – plus two get-togethers that gave me a much-needed opportunity to slow down and appreciate life in the midst of very hectic times. I attended two teas. Tea and […]
