My "Good Life" - July 18

The "Good Life" to me would be to ride the rails from New York to Portland, Oregon. (Two lines: Lake Shore Limited and Empire Builder.)

On that trip, I'd take with me several Bukowski books and my iPod filled with Tom Waits songs. My camera and my laptop (or pens and paper) would always be with me so that I could document my travels.

Advice on making reservations through "online reservation companies"

When making reservations through another company, just understand that it might be a little easier to deal directly with the hotel. Sometimes the rates are cheaper and if you need to make changes on your reservation, it is much easier to work with the hotel directly.

You will find some good bargains and some nice trips through these other companies and they often work without a glitch or a problem. Just check all sources before booking to insure you have the best possible way of dealing with problems while on the trip.

Scenes from the NASFT Fancy Food Show in NYC

So the chocolate tasting was a success


Here is a testimonial from someone who went to the chocolate tasting at The Cocoa Tree. The folks from The Cocoa Tree were just in New York City for the Fancy Food Show. I hope that went well for them and perhaps someone can tell us all about soon.

The chocolate tasting was amazing! Thank you for letting me know.

Bonus Part was the fact that I was eating great chocolate, washing it down with chocolate and won a raffle prize for a $50 gift certificate to a Moment's Peace Day Spa!
