Hey, Everybody! Today we took the jet ski out for the first time since my amputation! And, I am happy to announce that it was made possible the DryPro Prosthetic waterproof cover! DryPro Waterproof Prosthetic Cover to the rescue! You probably wouldn’t know this unless you have a prosthetic leg, but if you get water in your
Denise loves the beach But, since my amputation and before DryPro, our waterfront activities were limited to drives along the coast. Before my amputation, it was difficult for me to walk in the sand. Not to mention that I always had an open wound. So, I avoided the water, to avoid the chance of getting an
So now, the ball in your court, it’s time to email us your ideas! Go ahead, email us, we double dog dare you (I have always wanted to use that line, but I have no idea why! LOL) Where would you like us to visit? What is your hidden treasure? Come on, you know you want
Mr. Bill’s Travel Blog has moved and is under construction! As you have probably noticed by now, Bill’s Travel Blog is under construction! We have moved to a self-hosted WordPress site. Although most of the content was able to be moved, we lost photographs and our “theme.” Please, bear with us as we get the kinks
The locals were right when they said to go early! The food was awesome and the place packed out quickly. I was first in line when they started taking orders at 12:00 and our food came out quick! We had the steamed shrimp, butter garlic wings, roast beef wrap and the clam chowder in a bread bowl.
That’s when I heard about WordPress. The people I spoke with said, “Bill pack up your website and head on over to WordPress! That’s where you need to be!” (Ok, so all the while I was typing that, I heard the theme song to the Beverly Hillbillies playing in my head!)
It was about that time when I decided that it was time to downsize and consolidate. I needed a setup that was lighter in weight and more portable, these things would make it easier to use and in the end, make it possible to shoot more pics and video.
The result, I switched to the iPad Pro, with a MelaMount and detachable lenses. Now, I can shoot photos or videos and have the convenience of having one device with internet access.
So, what do you do when it’s 19 degrees out? We go for a ride! (It is warmer in the car after all!)
We had a spare day or two before the wedding and so we decided to do a little exploring out of Ossining, NY and up the Connecticut coastline. Our first stop was in Bridgeport, where we found Seaside Park.
Growing up in NY, now living in Florida and having traveled on this great nation’s highways and byways, I know traveling for long distances usually means the inevitable stop at a rest area to relieve travel stress, stretch your legs and of course, use the restrooms.
There’s “snow” fun like snow fun!
I would say that true success comes from falling down and getting back up. Learning why you fell, enables you to avoid the circumstance. Learning how to avoid the circumstance, enables you to avoid the repeat performance. Success in my humble opinion can be measured by the lessons you learned while you are on the ground and having the wisdom not to repeat the performance.
Of course, we picked one of the coldest days of our visit to get tickets, but hey, it was worth it to rub elbows with the likes of Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly, Daphne Oz, Michael Symon and producer Gordon Elliott! (well, we didn’t actually get to rub elbows, but we were in the same room, and we got to shake hands with Chef Michael Symon after the show!)
