Top 10 Places I Have Been

Lisa Niday - Wednesday, May 29, 2013

The final installment of the theme "The Top 10 Places I Have Been" is my list. Some are very specific and others are general, hopefully you will find a place or two you might enjoy from the list. I would give a nod to Switzerland as an honorable mention, but I've really only been to one city there so felt it wasn't really an accurate depiction. Read more

To continue our "Top 10 places that I Have Been" theme, this article is from my 10-year old grandsons, Wyatt's, perspective.

Hearst Castle

Lisa Niday - Tuesday, March 13, 2012

I have been to California no less than 40 times but had never been to The Enchanted Hill (La Cuesta Encantada) or more commonly known as Hearst Castle. Little did I know, I had seen the influences for the castle while I was in Europe. Actually that's where William Randolph Hearst got his inspiration as well. Read more
