Land Diving

In my latest business venture, I’m involved with the travel sector (more on that later). Anyway, one sub sector that I deal with relates to activity and adventure holidays. Thus, not only do I come across a lot of interesting destinations, but all sorts of quirky activities that I think would be fun to try. Interestingly, this one: land diving is not one of them. Below is a video of this crazy and oh yeah, dangerous activity! A precursor to bungee jumping, it started as a ritual performed by the men of the southern part of Pentecost Island, Vanuatu. Now […]

Friendships With Men

Basherter and I have resumed our friendship. It all began with a phone call a few weeks ago. This was perhaps more for me as most of our communication had been via Skype chat and I wanted to make sure that nothing said was lost in translation.

In many ways, this whole situation has helped me to […]

My Facebook Timeline

BestGuyFriend & Me

In all the years of blogging, I don’t think I’ve posted any pictures of BestGuyFriend and me. Well at least not that I can remember. Below is one of us taken during his short stay in London. How amazing that our friendship that started at the University of Michigan some 22+years ago remains strong and will surely last a lifetime!

Facebook: Timeline

Since I started blogging again, I haven’t really shared any of my posts via Facebook as I wanted to make sure I was seriously committed to blogging again. And so now that I’ve blogged almost everyday for the last 54 days, thinking I should go ahead and start sharing. Particularly as Facebook is launching a new look called Timeline which will essentially allow you to more easily create a visual scrapbook of your life. So in conjunction with this blog, thinking it will be quite powerful in helping to further document my personal history. Of course, most of the content […]
