Below are some of my all-time favorite songs. I'm still deciding which one will open up the show. What do you think? Oh by the way, did I tell you that my blog readers get…

How Do You Dress For Work?

Venetian Harbour of Chania, Crete

I would prefer May or September.  Next, I will share with you photos from Chania. (more…)
