When Analy Diego thinks about how she’s evolved as an artist, she recalls her grandfather. A gifted caricaturist, he introduced her to art at age six. That’s when she began her artistic journey painting with oils and watercolors.

More Than a Battlefield: Why Gettysburg Should be on Your Bucket List

Gettysburg is often called the most famous small town in America because it was the site of the greatest military clash of the American Civil War.  Union and Confederate forces fought fiercely over three days (July 1-3, 1863), suffering more than 51,000 casualties. 

The battle is famously called the "high-water mark" of the Confederacy.

Lately I’ve taken notice of language - the words people choose to use and those that show up time and time again. If you listen, regardless of the situation involved in the discussion, you begin to hear patterns, synonyms, and repetition of emotions wrapped in very specific verbiage. Why do these words appear? Are they always those that are conscious choices, or are there underlying factors at work? Do those factors come from our experiences, our fears, our upbringing, or our lifestyle choices, or do they sneak up out of nowhere and we will never know the ‘why’?

If you're flying through the UK, there's a good chance you'll have a layover at London Heathrow airport (LHR). Layovers can be dull, but they're an unavoidable part of modern travel and we all just have to put up with them. If your layover is more than the usual few hours though, the delay can turn into an opportunity. There's lots to see and do in the area around Heathrow if you have the time to explore.

When you think of a mummy, you probably think of Egypt. Or maybe you think of the Hollywood movie The Mummy, starring Brendon Fraser. But what if you were to discover that there are actual mummified animals laid to rest alongside their ancient Egyptian masters?

A two-day trip to a mega city, with a preponderance of excellent attractions, can be overwhelming. With jet lag slowing my pace, coupled with intermittent rain dissuading outdoor activities, I set aside one day to learn about Hong Kong’s history. The best place to begin my adventure was at the Hong Kong Museum of History. This museum was established in 1975 “to preserve and promote the historical and cultural heritage of Hong Kong.”

This past fall, while watching the costume contest at Grand Rapids Comic Con, I was weary. I was sitting up front near stage left, so that I could get a glimpse of the incredible costumes as they exited the stage. However, as you know if you have seen a costume contest, they take a while.

On Thursday, April 26th, 2018, I spoke at one of my favorite places, talking about one of my favorite things, in my favorite thing. It was truly amazing - I cannot say that enough. I thank the good amount of sugar in my bloodstream that day for helping me get through it, thank you Canada dry ginger ale.
