A long time ago, we visited our friends Jim and Marie in Vineland, New Jersey, and while we were there we visited Jim’s local fire station where he was a volunteer fire fighter.

Firstly the hotel chain where we stayed in Mexico had posted a comment saying they liked my video of our stay and asked if they could use it in their marketing, social media sites and websites… Continue reading “YouTube is getting interesting!”
Dotting the ‘i’s and crossing the ‘t’s is inference to someone paying very close attention to the smallest of details. The irony cannot be overstated in our latest sojourn to Ibiza in the less than capable hands of TUI, who we affectionately remember as Thomsons from years gone past… Continue reading “TUI or not TUI, that is the question…”
