My "Good Life" by Heidi

My "Good Life" is going to see Verdi's "Aida" in the courtyard of the Thurn and Taxis Castle. It was beautiful, both the music and the settings.

My "Good Life" by Joe

The good life is being able to retire at 40 and then coach your sons team to the little league world series and win it. Afterwards taking two months to drive around the country, visiting different state parks, national parks, amusement parks, going to sporting events and seeing the different stadiums.

It's showing my sons the country they live in and letting them see it with their own eyes instead of just reading about it. Creating lasting memories for the entire family.
~Joe from New York

~~~Joe and his family have now done all this stuff. Congratulations Joe and let that be an inspiration to us all.~~~

Great lyric to a song as read in "The Long Way" by Bernard Moitessier:

...and vanishes in the sunshine without paying for his drink....I have paid for mine, and at the same time I haven't, and it is wonderful to be that free. I feel happy, light, at once detached from everything and in control of everything, as when all debts are wiped away and you can live your own life.
~lyrics to a song that Mr. Moitessier forgot the tune and lyrics except for that one line.

Living the good life with a garden and dogs

Nashville food news from the Nashville Post

A pair of local entrepreneurs has launched a new venture seeking to build restaurants’ customer loyalty by providing diners with rebates for eating at participating eateries.

Jeff Gould and Marc Fortune, who previously launched The Restaurant List Company, which was designed to inform hotel guests about local dining options, have now launched Royal Oaks Rewards.


Yanni’s Grecian Garden, the small gourmet eatery that opened in Berry Hill last year, filed for Chapter 7 liquidation in U.S. Bankruptcy Court earlier this month. In the petition, the restaurant lists assets of $12,400 set against liabilities of more than $110,000.

Panagiotakis is part of the husband-and-wife team behind Eighth Avenue’s Athens Family Restaurant, which opened in 2004 and which has since become a much-loved 24-hour stop in Nashville’s Mediterranean dining scene. Since opening Athens, the Panagiotakises also opened The Breeze of the Greek Isles on Demonbreun Street and the short-lived Olympic Flame at the corner of Nolensville and Harding Place.
