Become A Castaway: Rent Your Own Island

Thursday, March 18, 2010

“Look what I have created. I have made fire!” I know, it’s cheesy, but I can’t help bursting out that line from “Castaway” every time I get a campfire going. At least, more often than not, I’m being a dork in front of more than just a volleyball (if that’s any consolation). Regardless, so many stories like that ignite […]

Starting to plan for the next winter Olympics? I have to admit, the closing ceremonies sent the ol’ imagination into the stratosphere with the possibilities of getting to the next Winter Games in Sochi.
