Travel bug

TravelSomething I have in common with a lot of my friends is a love of travel. It is hard to explain this desire to visit places (sometimes far from home), but for those of you who have the travel bug you know exactly what I’m talking about.

Last week Sergio and I booked our travel to visit family later this year in Brazil. Are you planning any trips this fall?  Do tell.  I’m always interested in hearing about favorite travel destinations.

Republican party immigration policy

Republican Immigration platformThe 2016 Presidential campaign season is in full swing and while anyone could win the election, the window of opportunity seems to be shutting for Republican candidates.  I had thought one of the lessons learned by the Romney campaign and the Republican National Committee after the 2008 elections was that they need to start building bridges with the all important Latino community.

With California and New York solidly in the Democrat’s back pocket (California last voted for a Republican President in 1988 and New York in 1984) and states like Texas where 38% and Florida where 23% of the population identify as Latino, you have to wonder who are these Republican candidates listening to and what do they think the general electorate thinks of their xenophobic rhetoric.

Monday man candy

hunk, handsome, pecs, muscle, abs, gorgeousToday is my first day back in the office after spending a wonderfully long weekend with friends  in Provincetown.  Point is I’m not feeling all that inspired so I thought I’d go with a man candy post to buy me some time.

I hope you are having an easier time adjusting back to the work week than I am.

What’s the definition of “traditional marriage”

Matt Baume has an interesting video that looks at how marriage has been defined through the ages.  You may be surprised by how marriage is defined in The Bible.
