Conferences


Eve-Langlais-Milly-Taiden-and-me 1
I just got back from the Romancing the Capital event in Ottawa Ontario.

Day 2 of our trip took us from Nashville, and through Alabama, and Mississippi. I’d been this way before, but Amy and Mary hadn’t been so they were surprised by the huge rocket at the Alabama Welcome Center. This is what you see from the road from a few miles […]

Gaylord Opryland 7
Yup, I’m back from RT — okay, I’ve been back a few days and have been buried in emails and such that I had to put aside while travelling. Before I get into the tale of our road trip, I sent out a newsletter with news of No Accounting for […]

RoadTrip
I’m over at Everybody Needs a Little Romance today, talking about one part of my road trip to New Orleans and two men who influenced it — a sweet talking Texan named Dan, and Mike, the mixed-up GPS who I was ready to toss in a bayou.
