How the Strangers I Met at the Parade of Homes Inspired Me to Seize Every Moment and Go Camping More

Some mornings,  I scroll mindlessly through my Facebook feed looking for the next big breaking story. What I usually find are photos of friends' kids, click bait, and "inspirational" memes. I think to myself, "Yeah, powerful stuff." I LIKE it, take a sip of coffee, and move on.

But, something that social media can't provide is truly moving personal connections.

This past week, I had the pleasure of visiting New Orleans. My husband went for a conference and I tagged along. I'll admit, I was pretty much terrified to go out alone but I soon learned my way around and was quite excited to go and do - even alone. I had five days and plenty of time to nose around the city and if you have the time, I suggest you do the same. If you don't, here's some gems that I found that you might enjoy too - along with some little tips on how to get where you are going.

Click It or Ticket Campaign is Underway in Indiana – Buckle Up!

I learned how to buckle a seat belt when I was a kid, although many cars didn't have them until I was a teenager.  Still, it wasn't required by law for anyone in a vehicle to wear them.  Laws didn't begin being passed forcing occupants to wear seats belts until 1984 and that was only for front seats.  However, even in the 70s, my parents insisted that I wear my seat belt and that's when, for the most part, I made wearing a seat belt a habit.

My Pet Peeve is the Pothole Problem in Evansville, Vanderburgh and Warrick Counties

Okay...I've hit enough potholes lately to scrape off half my tire treads, wear out my shocks and throw my wheels out of alignment - enough already!  I'm getting quite peeved about the potholes I have to dodge every day as I drive to work and home again.  I'm glad to know that the pothole patrols are getting out to the streets and I have to tell you, they can't get these dang blasted potholes filled soon enough!
