UP THE HILL!

The Park.  The Monastery.  The garden.  The ancient city.  It is all there – up the hill from my house.  A mere bus ride away.  In the park, there is a track  that circles it.  Runner, walkers, bicyclists, all use the track.  And, in doing so, they pass the remains of the ancient Roman city ofContinue reading “UP THE HILL!”

CARNAVAL DE NICE

This is my 4th February in Nice, and I STILL have not gone to a Carnaval Parade.  Why, you ask?  …Well, it could be because I don’t like events with crowds.  Never did – except for the GHS football games.  But, rock concerts and such, no.  I liked to go to the Hollywood Bowl.  ThatContinue reading “CARNAVAL DE NICE”

CHRISTMAS “FUNNIES”

Remember the “funnies”.  At least, that is what we called them.  I don’t think newspapers have a “funnies” page anymore, do they?  That is what I would tell Daddy to pass to me when he was reading The Atlanta Journal on Sunday mornings at the breakfast table.  It was the ONLY thing I would readContinue reading “CHRISTMAS “FUNNIES””

LEGACY, TWO YEARS LATER STEVE ORLANDELLA

TAKE A BREAK!  Settle back and give your mind a rest for a few minutes from the upcoming election to read some information about STEVE ORLANDELLA.  Who?  A man I was fortunate enough to have known for 23 years and to have spent 11 years of my life as his wife.  A lot of usContinue reading “LEGACY, TWO YEARS LATER STEVE ORLANDELLA”

A BASEBALL MEMORY

In the midst of all the chaos going on in the world, especially in my United States, it is good to remember constants that bring us together. Like baseball.  Apple pie.  Hot dogs. Even though baseball is in “full swing” right now, I need to post this video. It makes me feel good when theContinue reading “A BASEBALL MEMORY”

A DAY BY THE SEA IN ANTIBES

On Saturday, June 16, 2018, two of my U.S. expat friends, Pamela Keilson (from San Francisco) and Margaret Keith (from Selma, Alabama), drove with me to a fun event by the Sea in Antibes, hosted by The American Club of the Riviera (ACR). Antibes is the home to Port Vauban, the largest yachting harbor inContinue reading “A DAY BY THE SEA IN ANTIBES”

JUST WONDERING……..

Often, from time to time, I read something that I save for no good reason.  Somehow, it speaks to me.  Not too long ago, I read this – probably on Facebook, and it spoke to me.  Today, I want to share it with you. I want to thank the author – Author Unknown – forContinue reading “JUST WONDERING……..”

A HAPPENING…….

When I leave in the mornings to go for my walks, I never know if I will be inspired to shoot photographs or not.  Since I consider myself a “photographer” of sorts – with a fan base (haha), I have an obligation to get shots that I think are good.  AND, I am very criticalContinue reading “A HAPPENING…….”

JAYSPEAK SPEAKS –

As of May 23, 2018, Jayspeak has 104 posts, 29,997 views, 3,835 visitors, and 1,329 followers. Hopefully, this post will take the views over the 30,000 mark.  I am proud of that, especially since I started my blog as a fluke.  (See the Jayspeak post entitled “Flukes”).  At present, Jayspeak is “under construction”.  Not really,Continue reading “JAYSPEAK SPEAKS –”

CANNES 2018!

This year, the American Club of the Riviera (ACR) arranged its luncheon in the very middle of the Croisette, right in the midst of all “the players” and atmosphere of the Cannes International Film Festival, on Saturday, May 12, 2018.  We were invited to have lunch with ACR members and guests at the Vegaluna Beach RestaurantContinue reading “CANNES 2018!”
