The House That Meat-Juice Built

Published on April 3, 2015 by in RVA

There’s nothing in this world like a bona-fide pulverized meat-juice!  What’d I say?  Meat-juice!  What’s it called?  Meat-juice!  That’s right!  Meat-juice!

Monumental RVA: It Was the One Armed Man

Published on July 16, 2013 by in RVA

Tucka-what?: Tuckahoe Defined and a Trip to Tuckahoe Plantation

Published on June 25, 2013 by in RVA

Published on February 25, 2013 by in RVA

Well, the Oscars are over.  Boy, wasn’t that a hoot?  Remember when that one lady did that one thing?  And can you believe that THAT guy won instead of that other guy for best person who did acting?  Man, that was an emotional roller coaster!  And did you see what she was wearing?  And I

One of the Many Facets of Maymont

Published on December 21, 2012 by in RVA

The Capital of Virginia has many jewels in its crown.  Some of them, like the James River, are rough cut and remind us of the wild that existed before civilization popped up around it.  Some of them, like the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, are cultured and completely change appearance depending on the light.   I
