Easter in Disneyland

The crowds at times were plenty but not unbearable. Don't get me wrong there were plenty of people visiting. On top of the regular theme park visitors there were an equal amount of people visiting for Disney's Food and Wine Festival as well as the Disney Easter Egg Hunt Extravaganza. My point is there were... Continue Reading →

Mount San Jacinto

Another road trip to sunny California filled with great music, miles of asphalt and this time not so many of the usual junk food snacks because of a low carb diet I'm on.

The Women Of Black Panther

I rarely do this but I'm going to nerd out a bit over Black Panther.
