I loved this adventure too when I was in Costa Rica a while back too. I actually did a video on it. Great fun!! http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-369054

Chasin' Waterfalls You're in for a special treat today, kids, because this post was written by both Erin AND Katie.  They both loved this particular Costa Rican adventure SO much, that they couldn't agree who would get to write the post.  So they opted for the third-person introduction, while the blue font that follows was written by Erin and the green font was written by Katie.  Look out, TLC!  We're chasing some waterfalls, whether you like it or not. Now that we … Read More

This 4th of July, try Red, White, and Blue Chocolate Dipped Strawberries (via Life Tastes Like Food)

1 Comment


This looks delicious!! These strawberries get my vote (even though I’m Canadian)!

Red, White, and Blue Chocolate Dipped Strawberries The 4th of July is almost always comprised of social gatherings including BBQs and potlucks! When I was younger, I use to live in a cul de sac where the neighborhood was really child-friendly. Every 4th of July, we would block off the entire neighborhood and hold a huge potluck BBQ that would end in lighting off an obscene amount of fireworks into the darkness. Did anyone else ever use sparklers to write their names in the sidewalk as a kid? It's … Read More

Baja California’s Off Road Warriors

Leave a comment


http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-628753

Along the Baja California Peninsula, people live and breath off roading. Here, off roading is not merely a sport. It IS life. And this time of year, check any local’s calender and there’s sure to be an off road even penciled in almost every week!

It’s hardly surprising then that the first recorded, organized off road event was held here in 1955 — in the La Paz / Cabo San Lucas area. With sponsors and cash prizes, it basically laid the path for the hundreds of off road races occurring around the world today. The sport is so big that some people spend nearly 1 million dollars on their race cars! But it’s not only a rich man’s sport, I’m told. Nearly everyone along the Baja has some type of car, truck or bike for off roading fun.

Hearing about the bone jiggling good times these guys are having in the backroads of Cabo San Lucas, I quickly bored with my Jeep when I was driving around paved Cabo during a recent trip!! So, I searched out “the man” on the Baja off road scene, Norman Cesena. He has his hands in almost every off road event. With a little shameless begging on my part, I convinced these hard-core off roaders to let me hit the dirt with them…

Get buckled in and watch this!

Lets face it, wines have been aging gracefully for centuries and in most cases they’re far better for it. In Trasadingen, Switzerland they’ve come up with a great way for you to personally test it for yourself.

Did I come out any better? I’ll let you be the judge of that, all I can say is I had a great night of sleep in it after that glass of Pinot Noir.

Happy Father’s Day from the Land of the Neck Tie!!

Father’s Day 2011 and many a father will likely be getting a tie as a gift…

Do you know where the necktie was invented? If you think it’s France, you’d be wrong… Better watch this fun report to get to the truth of the matter!

Slovenia really knows good, aged grapes!

Leave a comment


Slovenia is an amazing nation and the people there really feel the LOVE for the country’s wine (and there’s LOTS of it)!! It’s little wonder that it shares a border with Italy… and though I may not be the world’s expert on wine, I do love the stuff and I think that I “personally” prefer Slovene wine to Italian wine!

You’ll have to go visit the country to see if you agree!!
