How many of you traveled more than 10 miles this holiday weekend? How many of you got out in nature this weekend? Dog walk? Boat ride? 5k run? SUP on the river? Fishing? Bike ride? Luckily in the Pittsburgh region summer arrived. Sunscreen was required and shade was a good thing. What else did we do this holiday? Connect with the Arrigo cousins on Zoom. Some dialed in, while others connected on laptops or tablets. It was good to see […]
This is overdue considering my normal routine of BodyTech, Planet Fitness or lap swimming has been interrupted by Covid-19. First I realized that going to the gym wasn’t the best idea with an airborne pathogen going around. Then the governor issued the official closure order.

In case you’ve made it through every episode of Murder She Wrote on Prime here are a few other roles that Angela Lansbury played. I always love Sweeney […]
Just taking a few minutes to take in everything that’s going on right now and wondering if I’m the only one thinking the overall big picture may never be the same after the world has been in lock down. I know when I was in Florida after Christmas seeing what was happening in China that we were bound to see something back here in the states, but had no idea it would be this big.

I needed a paddleboard fix and sun today. Let’s take a trip with our friends from Tangerine Travels to paddleboard on some amazing water in Quintana Roo a bit south of Playa del Carmen. Today’s temperatures there were over 90, meanwhile in Pittsburgh it’s rain and gray and 55. By the way— Laska is adorable.
