While I was Wandering: Normandy American Cemetery

A Thankful Memorial Day

As we enter into Memorial Day I am realizing I don’t think I’ll ever look about Memorial Day the same way again. After visiting Normandy last summer this holiday holds a little more significance for me from now on.

Tuning Out on HGTV

When there was nothing else on TV my husband and I could always trust HGTV to deliver some entertainment with a house buying or renovating show. Lately we have not been tuning in to HGTV.  We have found ourselves annoyed by the behavior of the buyers.

While I was Wandering: Saint-Mere-Eglise

Sainte-Mère-Église

If you have seen the movie The Longest Day you are familiar with the small town of Sainte-Mère-Église. You may even feel you have been there before when visiting - and you have virtually since some scenes of the movie were filmed on-site. There is a wonderful, immersive, interactive museum in town dedicated to the 82nd and the 101st Airborne Divisions who parachuted into Normandy in advance of the D-Day landings.
