REVOLUTIONARY TALES – BOSTON , MASSACHUSETTS . A SIDE TRIP TO CAMBRIDGE .

FB_IMG_1500990364843

 

Whenever  I  go  to  Boston ,  whether  it  be  for  a  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  or  to  visit  family  and  friends ,  I like  to  get  out  the  city  and  take  a  side  trip .

My  side  trip  isn’t  far  at  all .

I  can  even  take  the  ”  T”   to  get  there .

It’s  not  Cape  Cod .

No matter what  neighborhood  in the  city  I’m  in, I  can get to my side  trip .

I’m  talking  about  the  city that’s  the  home  of  of Massachusetts  Institute  of  Technology  and  Harvard  University .

It’s  Cambridge ,  Massachusetts  and  many  people  are  under  the  impression  that  Cambridge  isn’t  only  a suburb  of  Boston ,  but  it’s  one  of  the  Boston  neighborhoods  as  well .

Sorry ,  but  it’s  not .

People  in Boston  call this city, “The People’s  Republic  of  Cambridge  “,  due to  their  really  liberal  politics .

Cambridge  has  their  own  mayor  AND City  Hall .

I could  take  the  Red  Line  train  from  the  Park  Street  Station  in  Boston   to  the  first  train  station  in  Cambridge ,  Kendall  Square .

Kendall  Square  also  happens  to  be  the  station  for Massachusetts  Institute  of  Technology .

One  thing  that  you  notice  when  you’re  in  Cambridge , it’s  the names  of  the  train  stations .

Kendall  Square ,  Central  Square  and  Harvard  Square .

See  a pattern  here ?

As  I  said ,  I  usually  take  the  Red  Line  train  but sometimes  no .

Sometimes   I’ll take   the  bus  going  towards  Harvard  Square .

The  buses  in Boston  are  just  as  colorful  as  their  trains  are .

They’re  bright  yellow  and  like  the  trains, they also  have  a  big  black  letter  T in a  circle ,  right  in  the  middle .

As I’m  riding  the  bus ,  it passes  slowly  by  the Kendall  Square  station  and  a lot of  people  are  getting  off at  the  round  white  building  known  as  the  Massachusetts  Institute  of  Technology  or  MIT ,  for  short .

I’m  not  going  to  stop  here now   to  take  pictures ,  but  on  my  way  back  to  Boston ,  I  definitely  will .

The  bus  continues  on to  Central  Square ,  which  has lots  of  shops  and  restaurants  as  well  as  the  Cambridge  City  Hall .

You might  call  Central  Square   the “business  district  ”   of Cambridge .

The  Cambridge  City  Hall  looks  like  an  old  17th  Century  building ,  very  stately .

My  destination  is coming  up and it’s  a place  that  lots  of  tourists  come to  when they  come  to  Cambridge .

It’s  my  quiet  spot  in  the  city ,  Harvard  Square .

Like  Central  Square ,  Harvard  Square  also  has  a  lot  of  shops  and  restaurants .

Unlike  Central  Square ,  but like  Kendall  Square ,  a university  dominates  this  square .

It’s  one  of  the  oldest  universities ,  if not  the  oldest  in  the  country ,  Harvard  University .

Like  the  other  tourists ,  I  like  to  go straight  to  the  statue  of  John  Harvard ,  seated  in  a  chair  overlooking  Harvard  Yard .

Or  at  least  it’s  the  person  who  we  THINK  was  John  Harvard .

Since  there  are  no  pictures  of  the  founder  of  the  school ,  we  have  no  idea  of  what  he  really  looked  like .

Urban  legend  has  it  that  the  person  seated  in  the  chair  isn’t  really  John  Harvard ,  but  a  friend  of  his .

Another  place  that  I  like  to  go  on  campus ,  and  I’m  sure  that  I’m  not  the  only  one ,  is  the  Out  of  Town  Newstand .

This  isn’t  just  any  old  newstand ,  chances  are  that  if  you’re  looking  for  your  hometown  newspaper ,  you’ll  find  it .

Looking  for  that  magazine  that you  saw  and  liked  when  you  were  in  Dubai , ?

Guess  what ,  they just  might  have  it  there ,  too .

They also  sell drinks ,  munchies ,  lottery  tickets ,  and of course  you know  that you just  have  to  have  a  either a red shirt  that says  Harvard  University  Crimson  on it or the ones  that tell you  to Park your car  in the  Harvard  Yard .  ”

The  city  of  Cambridge    isn’t  that  far  away  from  Boston ,  but for  a few  hours ,  no matter  if  you  decide  to  go  to  Kendall  Square ,  Harvard  Square  or even  Central  Square ,  let  this  city  across  the  Charles  River  be a stop  on your  own  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  Boston .

HELLO CHARM CITY – BALTIMORE , MARYLAND . GOOD EATING AT FAIDLEYS IN THE LEXINGTON MARKET .

FB_IMG_1501164782674FB_IMG_1501164778814FB_IMG_1501164773271When  your  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  takes  you  to  Baltimore  for  a  Ravens  football  game  or even  a  Orioles  baseball  game ,  make  it  a  point  to  stop  by  Lexington  Market .

This  market  might  just  remind  some  people  of  the  Reading  Terminal  Market  in Philadelphia  with  all  the  food  stalls  and many  other  things  being  sold  there .

It’s  one of  the  oldest  markets  in the  country .

My  favorite  eatery  in  this  market  is  a  little  hard  to  find ,  but  a lot  of  people  do  just  that .

It’s  Faidleys  Seafood  Restaurant ,  and  not  only  do  the good  citizens  of  Charm City  eat  here ,  but  tourists  have  discovered  it  as  well .

I  did  mention  that  it’s  one  of my  favorite  places  to eat when

 

I  come  to  Baltimore ,  didn’t  I ?

It’s  not  one  of  those  foo  foo  fancy  restaurants .

There’s  no  chairs  to  sit  down  on ,  standing  room  only .

But the food  makes up for it, plus you get to  talk to  other people  who seem  to  love  those  crispy  French  Fries ,  mouth  watering  Onion  Rings , and   the best and creamiest  Cole  Slaw  ever ,  in my humble  opinion .

The  star  of  the  show ,  though ,  are the lump  Crab  Cakes .

They’re  the best  in all of  Charm  City  , if you  ask   me .

Once  again ,  it’s  my own  humble  opinion ,  and I’m  not  even  a  fan  of  any kind  of  Crab  Cakes .

But when  I  go down  to  B ‘ more  for a 30 Plus  Teams  Tour ,  I  will  eat them  at  Faidleys  with  no  problem .

Faidleys  is  opened  from 8:30am  until  5:30pm  Monday  through  Saturday .

If you  just  happen  to  be  in  the  Lexington  Market  area ,  you  really  aren’t  that  far  from  Baltimore’s  Inner  Harbor  or  even  Orioles  Park  at  Camden  Yards .

If  you  aren’t  a  fan  of  Crab  Cakes , (  what are you  doing  in Baltimore ? !    Just  kidding . ) or any  other  type  of  seafood ,  Lexington  Market  has  other  dining  options  for  you .

However ,  if  you  want  to  taste  some  of  the  best  Crab  Cakes  in  town ,  make  your  first  stop  in Lexington  Market ,  Faidleys .

Believe  me ,  it’s  worth  the  trip   and the  prices  aren’t  bad ,  either .

CAPITAL JOURNEY – WASHINGTON , DC . A VISIT TO THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF THE AMERICAN INDIAN .

FB_IMG_1500990962656FB_IMG_1500991140248FB_IMG_1500990965820FB_IMG_1500990971872FB_IMG_1500990968788Unlike  the  American  Indian  Museum  in  New  York  City ,  the  National  Museum  of  the  American  Indian  in  Washington ,  DC  isn’t  located  in  a  building  that  was  something  else  at  one  time .

This  building ,  which  is  located  at  4th  Street  and  Independence  Avenue  is  surrounded  by  a  series  of  peaceful  and  tranquil  waterfalls .

On  one  side  in  the  front ,  you  notice  the  figure  of  a  Native  American  warrior  wearing  a  Buffalo  headdress  .

As  someone  who  is  part  Cherokee  Indian  on  my  mother’s  side ,  I  wanted  to  visit  this  museum  while  I  was  in  Washington  DC .

I  didn’t  only  wanted  to  see  the  artifacts  and  relics  from  the  other  tribes ,  but to  especially  see  everything  that  pertained  to  the  Eastern  Band  of  Cherokees  in  North  Carolina .

Since  this  is  a  Smithsonian  museum ,  the  admission  is  free .

The  museum  is  opened  everyday  from  10am  until  5:30pm.

As  you  walk  into  the  lobby ,  you  notice  a  statue  of  George  Washington  standing  with  two  Native  American  chief’s  ,  one  of  whom  is  a  woman .

At  first  I  wondered  why  George  Washington  was  there  and  what  did  he  have  to  do  with  the  Native  Americans ?

But  fast  forward  a  few years  later  to  my  trip  to  the  The  Museum  of  the  American  Revolution  in  Philadelphia  .

Looking  back on my visit   now

, the statue  did  make  sense .

The  two  Native  American  chief’s  were  from  the  Oneida  Band  of  Indians .

The  Oneida  tribe  was  one  of  the  first  Native  American  tribes  that  helped  the  colonists  against  the  British .

As  I  continue  walking ,  I  noticed  the  figure  of  a  horse  adorned  with  the  Native  garb  from  the  Seminole  tribe  in  Florida .

This  museum ,  like  the  one  in  New  York  City ,  just  doesn’t  focus  on  the  tribes  from  North  America ,  but  the  native  people  from  South   America ,and  Central  America ,  but  on a  much  grander  scale .

There’s  even  a  restaurant  inside  the  museum  called  the  Mitsitam  Cafe ,  which  serves  foods  common  to  all  tribes  in  the  Americas .

This  museum  is  not  one  of  the  most  visited  museums  in  town  and  I  really  don’t  see  why  not .

This  is  a  museum  that  every  American  should  visit  while  you’re  in  Washington  DC .

MY PLAYLIST FOR MY OWN 30 PLUS TEAMS TOUR .

FB_IMG_1501168731188When  I’m  doing  my  own  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  by  bus  or  airplane  to  anywhere ,  I  have  to  have  some  kind  of  music  on  my  ear buds .

Not  only  does  the  music  soothe  me ,  but  it  drowns  out  any  conversation  that  I  really  don’t  want  to  hear .

You  know  the  ones  I’m  talking  about ,  where  someone  is  yelling  at  their  boyfriend , girlfriend  or  the  children .

Trust  me ,  on  those  long  rides  from Buffalo  or  Toronto ,  I really  don’t  want  to  hear  you  talking  loudly  with  your  girlfriend  or  your  mama  about  what  a  fool  your  baby daddy  is .

Or  how  he  got  some  other  woman  pregnant  and  he  doesn’t  even  support  yours .

Yes ,  I  have  heard  conversations  like  this  and guess  what ,  I  don’t  care ,  and  I  know  that  the  other  passengers  and  the  bus  driver  could  care  less  either .

TMI !

I  would  be  lost  without  my  music .

I  make  sure  to  download  as  many  songs  as  I  can  on  either  my  tablet  and  especially  my  phone .

However ,  when  I  am  traveling ,  let’s  just  say  that  I  want  music  that’s  not  sad ,  but  really  upbeat .

Something  that  passes  what  I  like  to  call ,  ”  The  Lawery  Toe  Tapping  Test .  ”

That  is ,  if  my  feet  start  to  bounce  up  and  down  after  the  first  few  notes of a song ,  you betcha  I’m  going  to  be  listening  to  the  song  for  a long  time .

It’s  a  keeper .

What  kind  of  music  do  I  like ?

I  might  be  64  years  old ,  but  I  do  listen  to  different  types  of  music .

You  might  be  surprised  to  find  a  Drake  or a   Little  Wayne  song  as  well  as  a  Tony  Bennett  or  a Frank  Sinatra  song .

You  won’t  find  any  opera  though ,  so don’t  even  look  for  it.

No ,  I  like  my  music  to  not  only  make  me move  my feet ,  but  my hands  and head  as well  without  disturbing  the   passengers  next  to  me .

I  put it loud enough  so  that  only  I can  hear  it .

So without  further  adieu ,  these  are  some  of  the  songs  that  you  just  might  hear  me  humming  or  see  me moving  my body  to   while  on  that  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  Washington  DC  or  somewhere  else .

Some  of  these  artists  you may or may  not  heard  of .

“MISTER  BRIGHTSIDE  ”  –  The   Killers

Not exactly the  songs  you expected ,  right ?

There’s  a  method  to  all this  music  madness and I  bet  some  of  you  can guess  what  it  is .

This  is  a  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  after  all, and  a lot of  these songs  are played  in  the  arenas ,  stadiums  and ballparks  that  I  usually  go to  see a game  in.

But what  about  you ?

What’s  on your  play list  when  you go away  ?

Let me  know  and who knows , maybe  one of  your  songs  just  might  make  it  to  my  play list  for  my  next  30  Plus  Teams  Tour .

CAPITAL JOURNEY – WASHINGTON , DC . A VISIT TO THE NATIONAL POSTAL MUSEUM .

FB_IMG_1500991923922FB_IMG_1500991916271FB_IMG_1500991886339FB_IMG_1500991930939FB_IMG_1500991900659FB_IMG_1500991933788FB_IMG_1500991919773FB_IMG_1500991880573FB_IMG_1500991876526FB_IMG_1500991883542

While  in  our  Nation’s  Capital ,  visit  a museum  that  you  didn’t  even  know  existed .

But  this  is  Washington  DC ,  there’s  a museum  for  just  about  everything .

Right  across  the  street  from  Union  Station ,  which  is  one  of  the  biggest  terminals in the  country ,  is another  museum  that’s  part of  the  S

mithsonian  family .

It’s  called  the  National  Postal  Museum .

Now  I  know  what  you’re  thinking  out  loud .

I don’t  want  to  see  a museum  about  stamps .

I rarely  go  to  the  post  office  back  home  to  buy  stamps .

I  don’t  even  collect  stamps .

This  museum  is  way  more  than  that .

Yes ,  there  are  stamps  from  the  United  States   ,  there’s  even  an exhibit  where  you  can  pick  out your favorite  stamps  and  send  the  copies  to your  email  address .

You  even  get  to  see stamps  that  are  used in   foreign  countries  and  in  one  special  exhibit ,  there  are  stamps  known  as  the  1851 Hawaiian  Missionary  Stamps ,  way before  Hawaii  became  a  state .

On the  lower  level  of  the  museum ,  you  learn  just  how  the  mail used  to  be  delivered ,  by stagecoach  from  originally  Boston  to New  York  City  and  also  by airplane .

In  yet another  exhibit ,  you get  to  see  just  how  important  getting  letters  from  family  was  during  World  War Two .

Does  this  museum  still  seem boring  to  you ?

You  and  your  children  might  enjoy  looking  at  the  the  different  mailboxes  from  around  the  world .

While  the  United  States  mailboxes  seem  to  be  just  blue ,  they  aren’t  that  way  in other  countries .

They  seem  to  be  every  bright  color imaginable .

You  and  your  family  just  might  find  the different  color  mailboxes  and  the  rest  of  the  museum ,  well,  interesting

Even if  you  never  use  stamps .

 

LIBERTY TALES – PHILADELPHIA , PENNSYLVANIA – VISITING THE MUSEUM OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION .

FB_IMG_1500992663434FB_IMG_1500992727064FB_IMG_1500992673679

 

 

FB_IMG_1500992819330FB_IMG_1500992825345FB_IMG_1500992827977FB_IMG_1500992724077

 

Philadelphia  is  known  for  just  as  many  museums  as  New  York  City .

Everyone  knows  about  all  the  historical  museums  in  the  city  as  well  as  the  Liberty  Bell  and  Independence  Hall .

I recently  visited  Philadelphia  and  went  into  the  newest  museum  in  the  city .

It’s  called  the  Museum  of  the  American  Revolution  and  it  opened  on  April  19th  of  this  year ,  which  just  happens  to  be  the  day  the  colonists  fired  ”  the  shot  heard  round  the  world  ”   at  Lexington  and  Concord .

The  museum  in Philadelphia  is  located  at  South  Third  Street ,  not  that  far  from  Independence  Hall .

Before  you  enter  the  building ,  you  notice  the  cannons  pointing  towards  you ,  right  above  the  name  of  the  museum .

Also  above  you  on  the  wall ,  is a copy  of  the  Declaration  of  Independence .

When  you  enter  the  lobby ,  which  is  very  impressive ,  including  the  marble  staircase ,  you  pay  your  admission   fee.

Hold  on  to  your  ticket ,  because  if you  come  the  next  day ,  that ticket  is your  admission .

Believe  me ,  you  will  need  two  consecutive  days  to  see  everything  in  this  museum .

Even  then ,  two days  just  isn’t  enough  to  see everything .

As  you  can  gather  by  the  name ,  this  museum  tells  the  story  of  the  American  Revolution .

But  it  doesn’t  start  from  the  events  at  Lexington  and  Concord ,  but  what  LED  up  to  those  events  and  what  happened  to  our  country  after  we  achieved  independence.

This  museum  may  seem  boring  to  you  and  possibly  your  children .

However ,  if your  children  are  old  enough  to  know  about  the  Revolutionary  War ,  they  really  need  to  see this  museum  even  if  you  aren’t  doing  a 30 Plus  Teams  Tour  of  Philadelphia .

You think  that  you  know  all  there  is  to  know  about  the  Revolutionary  War  because  you  learned  it  in  school  all  those  years  ago .

After  you  visit  this  museum ,  you  realize  that  you  really  didn’t  know  ANYTHING  about  the  Revolutionary  War .

In  school ,  the war  was  only  talked  about  from  the  Colonists  and  British  side .

There  was  actually  two  other  groups  of  people  whose  point  of  view  we  were  never  told  about .

The Native  Americans  and  the Slaves .

This  museum  makes  you  look  at  the  Revolutionary  War  from  four  different  sides ,  something  a lot  of  American  children  didn’t  learn  in American  History  class .

In every  room  of  the  museum ,  there  are  exhibits .

Children  will  definitely  enjoy  seeing  the  life size  replica  of  John  Paul  Jones’   boat  and  what  it  was  like  to  be  a  sailor  during  the  war .

I  particularly  liked  the  story  of  George  Washington’s  headquarters  at  Valley  Forge .

It was  a  tent ,  just  like  his  men  had .

You  are  allowed  to  take  pictures  at  the  museum ,  but  for  the  exhibit  on George  Washington’s  headquarters ,  no photos  are  allowed  at  all .

Once  you  see  the  exhibit ,  you’ll  understand  why .

I  was  saddened  to  see  the  exhibits  showing  that  while  the  colonists  were  fighting  for  independence  from  England ,  half  the  population  in the 13  colonies  were  slaves .

To  say  that  I  really  enjoyed  myself  at  this  museum  would  be  an  understatement .

As  a  history  major  in  college  oh  so  many  years  ago ,  seeing  the  exhibits  on  Lexington  and  Concord ,  Yorktown  and  all  those  Revolutionary  War  battles  fascinated  me.

I  even  liked  the  exhibit  showing  the  slaves  who  fought  for  the  British  side  because  they  were  promised  freedom .

I  would  strongly  advise  visiting  the  museum  of  the  American  Revolution  while  you’re  in  Philadelphia .

The  museum  gives  you  a  perspective  of  our  history  from  a  different  view .

One  that  is  very  refreshing  to  see .

Spending  two  or  three  hours  in  the  museum  won’t  bore  you ,  nor  will  you  be  disappointed .

OH MY GOD , YOU AIRLINES ! !

FB_IMG_1501248400064FB_IMG_1501248348133FB_IMG_1501248575494FB_IMG_1501248342434FB_IMG_1501248464812As a former  airline  employee  with  Delta  and  Malaysia  Airlines ,  don’t  expect  me  to  defend  the  actions  of  the  airlines ,  especially  here in  the  United  States .

I was  a reservation  agent  in Boston  and  Los  Angeles  for 10  years .

The  airlines  had  image  problems  back  then  when  I  was  an employee  from  1996  until  20 06  and  it  seems  like  it’s  gotten  worse .

Don’t  even  get  me  started  on  United  Airlines ,  they’re  doing  okay  by themselves  looking  like  the  airline  from  Hell .

But what  about  the  other ” Legacy  Carriers  “,  that’s  American  and  Delta .

They aren’t  any better  than  United .

Uncomfortable  seats ,  not  enough legroom  ,  small  bins to fit your carry  on  bags,  and not to mention  those  baggage  fees .

Although ,  I  do find  it  rather  funny  that  Congress  wants  to  do something  about  the  really  awful  customer  service  that  the  airlines  are providing  us.

I  guess  Congress  forgot  that  they created  this  monster  by deregulation  back  in  the  day .

Flying  used to   be  a  pleasure  and  the  ride was  very  comfortable .

Now, it looks  as though  the  airlines  don’t  care ,  and neither  do  the passengers ,  some of   whom look  like  they just  rolled  out  of  bed and   onto  the  plane .

I’m  not  talking  about  the  passengers  in economy or premium  economy ,  or whatever  the  airlines  are calling  those  same uncomfortable  seats  that  supposedly  have  more  legroom  now .

I’m  talking  about  you ,  Mr. and Mrs  Moneybags  sitting  in  Business  and First  Class  wearing  your pajamas  or sweat  pants .

They told  you  to get  comfortable  on the  plane, but  don’t  take  it  and  run  with  it .

Dress up   for God’s  sake .

Leave  the  sweatpants  for that 30 Plus  Teams  Tour  of  a Los Angeles  Dodgers  baseball  game.

Things have   gotten  stressful  for  everyone ,  not  just  the  passengers .

It seems  as  though  we pay  for  everything .

It’s  not  just  the Legacy  Carriers ,  the  “Low Cost  “airlines  aren’t  any  better .

Southwest  Airlines ,  you’re  my favorite  carrier,  what  on earth   happened  to  those  great  super saver  “Getaway  Fares” that  you  used to   have  from   Laguardia,  Newark  Liberty ,  not  to  mention  the  other  airport  that  I  fly out   of  a lot ,  Philadelphia  International ?

Speaking  of  low cost   and  no frills ,  Sprit Airlines ,  must you  charge  for  EVERYTHING ? !

Your  service  is so  horrible ,  you  should  be  paying  US to fly  YOUR AIRLINE .

Your  customer  service  leaves  a lot  to  be  desired .

I’d  rather  walk or  take  a  Greyhound  Bus to  the  two  Spirit  hubs,  Detroit  and Fort  Lauderdale ,  than fly  on  Spirit  to those  cities .

Why can’t  the airlines  make  travel  better ?

I’m  not  referring  to  all  those  screaming  infants  on board ,  because  if I   was  stuck  in  one  of  those  middle  seats ,  I’d  be  screaming  too.

Although ,  folks ,  please  stop  your  brats,  who are old  enough  to  know  better , from  kicking  the  back  of  my  seat, please .

Give  us some  real customer  service .

Don’t  ignore  our complaints .

Please  don’t  leave  it up  to

the  Reservation  Sales  agents to  apologize  why their  flight  wasn’t  on time .

Don’t  ignore  the  passengers  if they  email  you  or write  you  about  the  horrible  service  they  received .

At the   end  of  the  flight ,  how about  the flight  attendants  and pilots  actually  thanking  us for  flying  their  airline ,  and REALLY  meaning it ?

How  about  giving  us the  real  reason  that  flight  from  Atlanta  is delayed ?

Passengers  aren’t  doing  you  a favor  by taking  your  airline ,  so  don’t  act like   we are  .

We do  have  other choices  when we’re  doing  that  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  Chicago .

We’re  taking  your  airline  because  your  fare is  cheap  and  you’re  the  fastest  way  that we can begin  our  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  Miami ,  Phoenix ,  or Salt  Lake  City .

People  aren’t  going  to  suddenly  stop  flying  all together  and  take  Amtrak  or Greyhound  buses to get  to  their  destinations .

They’re  still  going  to  fly .

The airlines  know  this ,  so  how about  making  the  friendly   skies  really  truly  friendly ?
