Best standing rib roast ever, Billy Buck’s take on flying, a reprise of musing about horizons.
Choosing not to fly commercially, and a return to one of my favorite (and most remote) small towns in America – Branson, Colorado.

A brief sojourn to a town far, far away to the north – as far as you can go without a passport – to watch sled dogs race and marvel at 200 inches of snowfall.
MARS – the planet, the NatGeo TV series, and two friends who had much to do with bringing it all back to earth.
How one song turned my head around in Portugal some years ago, and a farewell to my readers as I bid adieu to “Journeys Over a Hot Stove.”
A slightly modified repost of remembering a rollicking night of excess just doing my job as a journalist and TV writer, the story of John and Marge Fairservice’s survival on a rock in the ocean, plus a delicious warm-me-up potato dish provided by my daughter-in-law Gillian.
