There is a very most magical bell at the Smile TV office on Easy Street. I like to ring it a lot, because it tells Sandy that I want a treat. When I ring the most magical bell, it likes to make a “ding” sound to my ears! Sandy hears this “ding” and comes to […]
History is like treats. It gets better with age. Today, I am exploring an old place of history that is just around the corner from the Smile TV office on Easy Street. It is a very smart place of history that tells the story of Smile Valley in the Pre-Sophie Times. There are lots of […]
The Lone Cypress of Pebble Beach is the singular landmark of the Monterey Peninsula. It is arguably the most photographed tree in North America, and undoubtedly symbolic on so many levels. (Do I even have to list them?) This Monterey cypress has perched upon this narrow crag for at least 250 years, one of only […]
The souvenir is one of the most coveted takeaways from a vacation, the material proof that yes, I was there. But far more than that, a souvenir is a vessel for a memory, something to be uncovered from time to time to return you for a moment to those tropical sands or spectacular icy climbs. […]

I travel to stimulate my five senses, but more importantly, I travel for the emotion. I travel to create and collect stories. There are many locations […]
This is the beach. The beach is the place where the ocean (you know, the really wet and blue thing that’s like all over the Earth) meets the land stuff part (which is the rest of the Earth). There’s usually sand there. I like the beach a lot. I can smell it from a real […]
Tim Harris has no time for limitations. The Albuquerque restaurant owner and multiple Special Olympic medalist has far too many hugs to give.
During my middle school days, I became fascinated with everything German. Though I do not remember how this fascination began, what I do remember are the countless Google image searches and Wikipedia frenzies that my interest spawned. A search for German culture would lead to German food which would bring me to Bavaria which would […]
