Burial at Sea

As I plugged my phone into the outlet next to a shelf in the hotel bathroom, I had a fleeting thought that it was sort of an odd place for an outlet.  That was actually the last thought I had before my phone slipped out of my hands and fell directly below the shelf…

Lets start with the basics.  A PADDLE brush is great for detangling and blow drying large sections of hair at a ...

A Warm, Familiar Welcome

It has always been a hallmark of independent hotels to retain long-term staff and The Grand Summit Hotel in Summit is at the forefront of that history.

A repeat guest looks for the warmth and comfort that comes from a familiar face when they enter a hotel’s doors to put them at ease knowing they may be away from their family for an extended period of time.

Pokémon Politics Go!

As a rule I stay away from popular fads.  Politics included.

 

I find my views on the latest crazy trends that are sweeping the nation are usually wrong and completely out of touch with reality.
