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
Okay, I must admit that heights are not really my thing. So, if you were to ask me to climb a tower and jump off, I would say “you first!” And, I am true to my words (see my first photo) I asked Denise to go first, you know, so I could get a good picture! In the end, I really loved Zip Lining!

Thank you! Today’s blog post is a special thank you to all of those that make things happen behind the scenes! Often times, these poor souls are forgotten as we go about enjoying ourselves. On an unfortunate day, you can hear someone grumbling at them, “I don’t want to!” or “do I have too?” and
