Musings from A Seasoned Ruby Laner: Life Was Simpler Then

I was chatting with a friend a few days ago about how we spent our free time when we were children. Of course, the most obvious difference between then and now is that we were more free. There were fewer vehicles on the roads, so we could set off for adventures on our bicycles without much risk of accident. Safety helmets for cyclists had not been invented, so our hair blew free as the wind rushed through it, adding to the sensation of speed.


Musings from A Seasoned Ruby Laner: Traveling Light?

At this time of year, when I can smell Spring in the air, my thoughts turn to travel. I love to travel, to visit other countries, learn what I can of their customs, take far too many photos (the joys of digital photography), try the interesting food....Yes, I did eat limpets in Madeira. They tasted, as described in the guide book, somewhere between shellfish and liver. I ate the whole plateful!
