Beaver Falls, Pa. (Note: Instead of bogging down my blog with scads of large photos, I’ve uploaded them to my Flickr page for your viewing pleasure.) For the second stop in my Exploring Beaver County blog series, I hopped on my bike and pedaled my way over the Beaver River, twice, to the City…(Read More)

It’s a never-ending battle. Just when you think you have them beat, they magically reappear. And in greater numbers. The thing I want to know is…where in the heck are they coming from? Ever since we got back from our little mini-vacation to Maine last week, we’ve been at war…(Read More)

So here I am again, back in Dayton for the bi-annual (or is it bi-ennial?) Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop. I love this conference! Every two years I get to get away from it all for a few days, be surrounded by fellow writers, and, most important, have an entire king-sized bed to…(Read More)
