Trump and Clinton March On

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump

Trump is so profoundly unpopular among every important voting bloc that he could get blown out and destroy the Republican Party. Republicans must rebuild anyway with just Trump or Cruz available to be their presidential nominee, neither remotely qualified for the job. This puts the Democrats in a position not only to handily win the presidency, but to sweep a number of "down ticket" elections...

Roadside Attraction Postcards from Washington, DC:
Musings on an Election When It Might Finally Hit the Fan

By Skip Kaltenheuser

sunrise at the Potomac River and Key Bridge

Greetings from Washington, DC! Tasked with castaway political thoughts for this photo essay, I see the real roadside attractions looming large are the presidential contenders. There’s peril waxing wise in this arena. Look back to the starting gate. How silly the oracles’ certitudes look now. So this political meander is of quick and dirty drive-by shootings.

An Evening with Janiva Magness: Love Wins Again

Janiva Magness CD cover

The last thing a former Lost Angelinian misses after almost 20 years gone is the congested freeways and the angst associated with navigating through the city limits. So when my friend, Jocelynn invited me to come back to town to see a show, I was less than enthusiastic. When she added it was a special performance by Janiva Magness and the release of her new chart-climbing CD, Love Wins Again, I was in the car and headed up the 405 before she received my 'Oh, hell yeah!' response.

Lift a Fork in Puerto Vallarta

xecutive Chef Fred Ruiz at CasaMagna Marriott's La Estancia restaurant, Puerto Vallarta

Along the gorgeous sweep of coastline in the heart of Puerto Vallarta, where upscale haciendas cling to the cliffs by their colorful tiles, enchanting five-star hotels are interspersed with a splendid collection of notable restaurants that long have been haunted by gourmands in search of creative tables. Some of the finest chefs both in Mexico and worldwide have answered the call of Vallarta and brought their skills to this verdant slice of tropical paradise...

A Steam Train Ride from Yesteryear – Enjoy It in Great Britain!

British steam train
The rolling, riveting railway – yes, come along with me as we board a magical means of transportation from yesteryear – with its giant wheels that were often taller than the many small boys who stood and stared at its galaxy of pistons, rods, levers and other tiny inter-connecting "things," here was an enormous piece of finely crafted machinery of steel and iron called a steam engine.

Orvis – A Traveler's Best Friend

Orvis sun hat, safari shirt and bison leather backpack on a traveler

There is nothing like traveling with the proper gear. Whether it's comfortable walking boots, a sturdy, wide brimmed sun hat, a cool safari shirt, or a luxurious, yet practical backpack, the sights and sounds of a new destination are easier to absorb when one is prepared. This is why I love Orvis.

The Metropolitan Opera: A Rare Roberto DevereuxFathom Events Live in HD Presentation
By Ruth J. Katz

Hohenwerfen Castle, Salzburg
I had the good fortune this season to attend the opening gala (March 24) of the Metropolitan Opera's production of Roberto Devereux, which the august opera house had never staged before – hard to believe. The legendary Met, founded in 1880, has mounted La Bohème, the most popular opera in its repertoire, nearly 1,300 times, and yet poor Roberto Devereux has had nary an airing, at least up until this 2015-2016 season.

Republican Violence; Democratic Violins: Where Are Our Values Now That We Need Them?

arrest at a Trump rally

Watching this ridiculous primary season unfold as the ugly swirl of personal and political rhetoric slowly seeps westward towards my lofty perch in California, I feel like we are observing two totally different Americas in play. Republican America is angry, hateful and afraid, and mistrustful of government and the established order. Democratic America mistrusts big corporations, and feels frustrated and betrayed that the government hasn't taken better care of us.

The Sights of Salzburg and the Sound of Music
By Ruth J. Katz

Hohenwerfen Castle, Salzburg
When speaking of dreamy, jewel-like Salzburg, these are a few of my favorite things: The extraordinary Hotel Sacher (not to mention its eponymous Sacher Torte which just might harden your arteries in a virtual heartbeat); the evocative Summer Riding School, or the Felsenreitschule, with its open-air, carved-into-rock architecture; the extraordinary trick fountains (jeux d'eau) of Hellbrun Palace; and the views from the Gschwandtange meadows outside the city in Salzburgerland.

Cayucos: A California Beach Town Lost in Time

The Shoreline Inn in Cayucos

California's Central Coast is littered with lost beaches, craggy rock formations, forgotten coves and rolling hills. Hidden amongst these natural wonders is the small town of Cayucos, where time has slowed and a classic 1960s beach village vibe permeates the air like fog through an historic pier.

On the Tracks with Eurail: A Personal Journey of Discovery

Eurail train and Polish countryside
The sound of the tracks were calming as my railway car glided effortlessly through central Poland’s breathtaking countryside. A nation with a history of great turbulence, Poland’s flat landscape and proximity in the middle of Europe – where east meets west – made it a convenient gateway for a seemingly endless array of past conquerors. From my train window I could see where Hitler’s Nazi Army blitzed into the countryside..

Nemacolin: The Ultimate in Laid-Back Luxury

writer and her husband at Paintball Target Practice, Nemacolin Woodlands Resort
I was halfway through my Dreamcatcher massage when the masseuse started dancing around the table. Now, I'm somewhat of an experienced spa-goer, but this was new for me. As were so many other things at the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in southwestern Pennsylvania. I also drove an off-road Jeep Rubicon over rocks, through streams, up hills, scaled a climbing wall and shot a rare white buffalo – with my camera.

Two Interesting California Vacation Ideas Just for YOU

Mono Lake tufa towers
First there's the fact of two million birds. Yes, two million. An equally astounding number is that the lake where they hang out is over one million years old. Then there are those names: Wilson's phalaropes and red necked phalaropes, Warbling Vireos and Sage Thrashers. Implausibly, they're the colorful appellations of just a few of the birds that inhabit Mono Lake.

Eric Anderson's travel blog/review
Europe's Churches: Religion's Treasures

the Church of St. Charles in Vienna
People, of course, like to look at pretty things: Charlize Theron, Brad Pitt, sunsets, waterfalls, Ferrari automobiles, cathedrals. The last two might have something in common. The late French critic, Roland Barthes once said such exotic cars were the equivalent of today's great Gothic cathedrals.

How to Do New Zealand's South Island in 2 Weeks
Courtesy Caroline Morse, SmarterTravel Staff

New Zealand's South Island might not seem that big, but it's actually the 12th largest island in the world. Not only is it the bigger of the country's two main islands, but it's punctuated with winding two-lane highways that can slow you down considerably.

It's easy to look at a map and think you can get from one area to another in just an hour or so, but in reality it's likely to take much longer. So, unless you've got unlimited vacation time (and if you do, I want your job), you're going to have to narrow down your trip to the highlights. Here's what to see and where to stay if you have two weeks to explore New Zealand's South Island.

Things You Should Never Pack on Vacation

The key to trip preparation is to pack smarter, not harder. You may feel the urge to plan for the unexpected, but filling your suitcase with a bunch of what-if items can really weigh it down. There’s nothing worse than unpacking after a long trip and realizing that you didn’t use half of the items in your suitcase. To prevent this from happening to you, here are a few things that you never need to pack.

Deb's poetry break

The World
Is A Beautiful Place
by Lawrence Ferlinghetti

The world is a beautiful place
to be born into
if you don't mind happiness
not always being
so very much fun
if you don't mind a touch of hell
now and then
just when everything is fine
because even in heaven
they don't sing
all the time

The world is a beautiful place
to be born into
if you don't mind some people dying
all the time
or maybe only starving
some of the time
which isn't half bad
if it isn't you

Oh the world is a beautiful place
to be born into
if you don't much mind
a few dead minds
in the higher places
or a bomb or two
now and then
in your upturned faces
or such other improprieties
as our Name Brand society
is prey to
with its men of distinction
and its men of extinction
and its priests
and other patrolmen

and its various segregations
and congressional investigations
and other constipations
that our fool flesh
is heir to

Yes the world is the best place of all
for a lot of such things as
making the fun scene
and making the love scene
and making the sad scene
and singing low songs and having inspirations
and walking around
looking at everything
and smelling flowers
and goosing statues
and even thinking
and kissing people and
making babies and wearing pants
and waving hats and
dancing
and going swimming in rivers
on picnics
in the middle of the summer
and just generally
'living it up'
Yes
but then right in the middle of it
comes the smiling
mortician
