Exploring Freedom & Dignity

In downtown Atlanta, Georgia, tucked in between the World of Coca Cola and the Georgia Aquarium, right on the edge of Centennial Olympic park, you will find the National Center for Civil and Human Rights. I hesitate to call it a museum because it is so much more than a look back at the history […]

When you know, you’re home

Home may not be the location you were born in, or grew up in, but finding that place where bone deep, your heart sings, I’m home. Now that’s a journey worth taking. And some times it leads you right back to where you started. I’m always drawn back to my hometown of Omaha, Nebraska, but […]

Magical Lights

Under the Spell of Voodoo Taco

The name got me in the door but the Wicked Good Tacos will get me back. Starting with chips & queso – always a good idea – and these were generous and spicy.  Next trip I’ll try the chips & guac, wicked style (with bacon, blue cheese & sage).  The baja shrimp tacos were tasty […]
