I like to travel light when flying or traveling by train. I've traveled all around the world with my small rolling bag (15x13x8) and a small backpack, and it can be done. I totally understand why...

I put fresh spinach in just about anything I cook, but my favorite way is a simple sautť with garlic and mushrooms. Fast and tasty. Sautť some freshly minced garlic in a bit of olive oil for 30...

I have used this too, and it requires some basic tech knowledge, but once your sister understands how it works, it should be easy for her.
Otherwise go with a basic pedometer. You can find some for...

I have purslane in my garden too. It is basically a weed. I throw it in my salads and also steam it with some garlic, then add some salt and pepper. You can add some olive oil as well, but I like it...

Did you mean you will be spending 10 days in Los Angeles or in the Camp Pendleton area (Oceanside/San Clemente)? Are you just doing a day trip to LA?

The train will be great as you will avoid the...

Enjoy your trip! DH and I did a couple of day hikes on challenging trails near Leadville when his niece did the Leadville 100 mile trail run (ultramarathon) 5 years ago. Leadville is such a cute...

Los Angeles

There is so much to do and see in LA. If you have never been, just FYI it is a very spread-out place, and having a car makes it easier to get around. Where are you staying?

My favorite places are...

I have to brush up on today's language, because like amiga I did not know what 4k meant. To me it means 4 km (as in running), or 4000 units (metric system).

Who knew! :D

I looked up 4k in the...

This seems to be a problem everywhere. The employees who helped you may not have had enough training on how to fit the backpack or how to work with a customer. I would definitely give REI corporate...

I don't know how they decide on the ads. I saw Universal Studios Hollywood and Vionic canvas shoes, and just now it changed to Charles Schwab. Oops, it is now an ad for YETI. Now I'm seeing a FEMA ad...
