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.

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

Five Ways To Let Go And Embrace Life

scan0004

As we move along life’s path, we forget to let go, to live life.  I read the attached article about one person’s discovery on how to embrace one’s life.  His philosophy is interesting and consists of 5 simple rules.

  1. Quit Something
  2. Take A Risk
  3. Embrace New Ways of Thinking
  4. Be Irresponsible
  5. Stop Putting Your Dreams on Hold

In our life, we have pretty much done all but number 5, and we are working on that diligently.
