- Checking It Out
Is the world prepared for the driverless car era? Are you?
Picture it. You slip into your car, recline and start reading the day's news on your smartphone. The vehicle accelerates, smoothly navigates traffic and seamlessly merges onto the freeway, without your lifting a finger.
Big Easy: Good food, music and fun
New Orleans isn’t for the faint of heart. So if you’re offended by transvestites, topless women, sex toy shops, all-hours bars, the sight of people purging in the street and other visions of light-hearted debauchery, read no further, because the Big Easy is not for you.
Hard Rock Resort: Gaming, dining, fun and relaxation, all in one!
The Tulsa-area partnership with the Cherokee Nation promises to be a success.
Walt Disney World, Part 4
Anytime my husband and I schedule a few days of vacation, checking out good restaurants tops our list of things to do.
Walt Disney World, Part 3
When it comes to travel, I count myself extremely lucky. For one thing, I have family in a few ultimate vacation spots, and they’re always happy to put up with me for a couple of days.

While in Chicago, take in a game or two
Thursday was our last full day in the Windy City, and once we finally rolled out of bed, we were en route for U.S. Cellular Field to take in a White Sox Game. Not that we’re Sox fans, mind you – they just happened to be playing the Angels, which my son considers “his” team.
Chicago is architecture aficionado's paradise
Chicago is an architecture aficionado's ultimate paradise. Thanks to the Great Fire of the 1880s (and, in popular legend, the clumsy or recalcitrant nature of Mrs. O'Leary's cow), the city could be rebuild according to a splendidly harmonized scheme, rather than the ramshackle fashion through which most urban areas take shape over time.
Day 4 (Tuesday) in the Windy City
It might be hard to believe you can get good Cajun food in a place as far north from New Orleans as you can get without pronouncing “about” without the “o” (that’s a-BUTT, for those of you not in the know). But you can, and that’s how we started the day Tuesday, July 6, in the Windy City.
