September 29th, 2010 · Tags: Cities · Hotels · Wi-Fi

So how ’bout this hotel, The Marque? Well, it wasn’t until my third or fourth night in my room that I noticed the earthquake damage in the room, up along the wall in the corner and above the artwork near the desk. Had that been there before? I don’t know … perhaps not. Because, almost […]

PingWi-Fi Joins Civic Posse At Omni Fort Worth Hotel

January 12th, 2009 · Tags: Cities · Hotels

Several years ago, I did consulting work for a public affairs company in Dallas.  At that time, they were part of the coalition to “put down” all this crazy talk about a convention hotel in Fort Worth.  The public affairs team was spearheaded by a young, hard-hitting, self-assured woman who promised me that there “would […]

Since the early days, I have played this game on PingWi-Fi where I see just how cheap I can be … or rather … how inexpensively I can travel.  It’s just who I am … Mr. Frugal:) … I do it to excess … just a crazy game I play.  Ha … I have lived […]

ServPro First Responders Bowl … Ain’t Happenin

December 27th, 2018 · Tags: Music · Satire · Sports

All roads leading to the historic Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas seemed to be clear for a timely arrival, even through some rough neighborhoods, west of Fair Park.  I had remembered to bring my media pass and my parking pass, no easy feat for me.  The grayish blue clouds parted for a few moments, as […]

October 8th, 2018 · Tags: Arts · Cities · Hotels · Uncategorized · Wi-Fi

  My story began in Vega, Texas … where “what stayed in Vega, happened in Vega,” I love to say. In the early chapters, childhood was spent watching sports teams at the school, hours upon hours — when I wasn’t watching Fall’s fading light obscure the fast-moving shadow of a school bus, over country roads, […]

  After a quick jaunt back to Texas, I returned to “The Dirty Gig” in Mexico and then on the first opportunity headed straight for The Pyramid of the Sun, an hour northeast of Mexico City.  IF I had a bucket list, Teotihuacan would be there.  But who takes the credit for it making the […]

Still haven’t … However, today I woke up in the heart of Mexico, three hours northwest of Mexico City in the cuidad de Celaya. Celaya has all the traditional […]
