Peru: Land of the Incas… And the land of BBQ, flowers, and glaciersavatar

with 4 comments

In my last blog post, I hinted at where I’d recently been on vacation. The answer: Peru! During our trip, my family and I acclimated to the elevation in Cusco (the city sits at an elevation of more than 10,000 feet!), then hiked through Peru’s Sacred Valley, and ended our trip by watching the sunrise [...]

Where in the world was Rebecca??avatar

I just returned from a trip to South America with my family. Based on a few clues and pictures, can you guess where I was? In this country… There is no shortage of beautifully soft scarves, mittens, blankets and hats made from baby alpaca wool Guinea pig – known as cuy – can be found on restaurant menus [...]

Mike Ruiz Earns USA Boxing’s Nod vs. Great Britainavatar

without comments

I received a late-night (like 10 p.m., not too late for me) call from Mike Ruiz, the runner up in the National Golden Gloves tourney. He wasn’t in jail or anything, not that he would call me if he was, but I doubt he’ll ever be in handcuffs. No, Ruiz was in Colorado Springs. More specifically at the Olympic [...]

U.S. Men Score Big Over Spain in Confederations Cupavatar

without comments

Getting back to a brighter note. But I must say, one AP story mentions the U.S. men’s soccer team took some of the spot light away from Jon & Kate. Ha! I did see the match the other night on ESPN. I really thought Landon Donovan and the squad would simply finish off the tournament with mediocre play, pack it up [...]

A Tough Week: Jon & Kate; Ed McMahon; Farrah & Michaelavatar

with one comment

What a week! At least we have the memories. Some of my friends were practically heartbroken over the divorce of Jon & Kate. I must admit, Kate bugged sometimes but I didn’t want this, especially since it will affect all the kids. Now this IS reality TV. I just wish TLC would not sell it like [...]
