America is Dangerous!

Non-Flammamble Vegetable Based Oil!

at least they have the good sense to warn a person.

Minor Updating

*** ***

Everyone is reading this (see link above). I just read it. Eureka. I seriously think this writer & I were separated at birth. In fact, in a few hours I will be calling my mother to ask if she produced two children without me knowing.

And while this person's updates are frequent & a lot more involved.... I do sincerely feel, if I had any motivation - and ability to draw sloppy pictures - I would give her stuff a run for its money. Very possibly.

Read the one on spiders though. She nails that.

I Went to Greece

Here's what you should know - if you are contemplating a trip there too.

1) Go in the off season.
~ this holds true for most places in my opinion. Early May or September.

2) Do not go during high season.
~ ok, yes this was just mentioned. But can't stress it enough.

~ Unless you want to: jockey for a seat on a bus, or have all the buses be sold out. Or wait 3 days for the next ferry because the one you wanted was sold out. Etc.

3) Greece has a lot of natural beauty. If you are into that, go to Greece. If you need air conditioning & don't like walking places, go to Las Vegas.

4) No 'to-do' list.

We just showed up at a bus station, & got on a bus marked "Red Beach." It was gorgeous. Like a place where a movie with Leonardo DiCaprio as an adventurer of some sort would be filmed.

The fun of discovery - places to hike, eat, swim, photograph donkeys.

Leave your Fodor's at home.

Just killed a spider the size of Ecuador.

(It was. I swear.)

Anything spider-related must be broadcast to the world to somehow mitigate the fear.

Mentally Planning Meals for the Next Trip Home

When I get back to the U.S. this is what I am going to eat.

The maple syrup will be warm, and it will cost no more than $14.
Everything included.

Started to wash my face. Lathered soap onto hands, then face. Then realized my glasses were still on...
