A “hot spot” on a “Cold Spring” day, Cupoccino Cafe! How was that for a catchy title? Well trust me, the day we visited the quaint little town of Cold Spring, New York, was a bit on the chilly side, and this little coffee shop was a welcome sight. I use the term “coffee shop” loosely because the
Ozona Pizza, a step beyond the ordinary So, you are in the mood for a Pizza. But, not just any pizza, one with the toppings heaped haplessly on top. Afterall you are a pizza connoisseur, not just the average consumer or carnivore looking to ravage the ordinary Pizza. You know what you like and what is good
Half Moon Cay Yes, it’s true Half Moon Cay is Carnival’s private 2,400-acre island, that serves as a private retreat for passengers on the line’s Caribbean and Panama Canal sailings.

A swimsuit, sunscreen, and a change of clothes are good examples, not to mention any medications you may need. Denise has a travel checklist that comes in handy.

Food trucks are all the buzz these days, drawing large crowds at food truck rallies. The rally held at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa boasts the largest gathering of Food Trucks in the US.
