Review of Pinups Fun & Grill – Mazatlan

A quick review. We stopped at Pinups, a local ex-pat favourite, for a quick bite. Had the Juicy Lucy chicken sandwich. Very good, recommend. As an added bonus, they share a small square with Lucky B’s and an acoustic set was being highlighted by Rex. This is a very good band, especially when they have the full group. Will be seeing them tonight. More on them later.

Off To Mazatlan

Flying out 6 AM. Staying at Delta at Calgary airport. The unpaid contributor dropped us off and all it cost was an expensive airport hotel supper. Oh, and drove us in our vehicle.

The Delta at Calgary airport is an older place with good bones. Comfortable rooms, very good restaurant.

Lots of fun to come. Mazatlan has an amazing music scene. Lots of pictures and hopefully a daily synopsis.

Love being back. Brain is emptying.

Pictures tomorrow.

A short self promo and some history.  I started blogging in 2011 at

Is It Possible To See It All

It was decided a few years ago to abandon that site and move on to this one, which was to be more of a personal travel/retirement advice type of site.  Then life took over and this was semi abandoned as well.  Now, after several attempts, I am trying to regain my blog legs and incorporate the thousands of pictures, adventures, stories and videos we have experienced over the past 15 years or so, not to mention our acquired wisdom.  We’ve had quite a run of fun.

Some additional self promo.  As some of my past friends know, we love our music, life’s soundtrack.  I have a separate site, dedicated to nothing but music.  I lean to promotion of Canadian music, but I don’t hold myself to it.  There are many things I bounce around with here, Remembering the ones we lose, artists I’ve found on Twitter and Instagram (among other places) and anything else that touches my ear.  This extravaganza can be found by clicking the link.  Drop by, browse, listen and discover.

Foods That May Reduce Blood Pressure

I’m not a doctor, and do not pretend to be one either.  As someone with controlled high blood pressure, I did find this to be an interesting read.  It basically confirms what my doctor has been telling me.  As an added bonus, many of these are effective for cholesterol issues as well.

Alaska From The Ocean

IMG_1455

A shot I took with my iPhone in July of 2013 as we cruised past on a Celebrity cruise liner.  A different look of the mountains from what we are used to as we see them from the Alberta side daily.  Very stark contrast as they rise out of the ocean as compared to the foothills and prairie on our side.

So, Where Have We Been

I guess we owe you an explanation on our extended absences of late. To be truthful, we (I) have been suffering a motivational failure at the exact moment that we had accelerated our planning. What planning you ask. I’d say retirement planning but that has some negative connotations. Let’s go with future planning.

We seem to have made some decisions now that bode well for our future. This should translate in some posting (I think). At any rate there are mounds of digital media to sort through and many adventures to share.

See you soon
