The city of Miami claims it wants to be an international city. That probably explains the reason for all of the building downtown and remodeling on the beach.  It may even explain all of the festivals.  But in order to be a truly international city you need the best public transporation possible,...
My week in Montreal in a nutshell.  I absolutely love it too.  What a wonderful place to take a vacation.1. Men carry a murse. That would never happen in the US.2.

Everyone wants to move to Florida, especially Miami, because of the weather.  I get it.  I can see how one would get sick of the extreme cold up north, but remember that what you have in extreme cold up there we have in extreme heat down here.  And it's about to get worse.  Climate change is not ...

Lauderdale airport and make a beeline for I-95 South when some of the best tourist destinations are right under th...
I know a lot of you entrepreneurs out there do not want to hear this, but it's only fair that I tell you.  Although Airbnb is a very nice alternative to hiring a real person; i. e., a realtor, it may not always be the safest route for making money legally.  I am certain that there are many landlo...
Top 10 rules for driving in Miami.1. Never use a a blinker.  That would be way too courteous.2. Cut off as many people as possible before an exit or at a bottleneck.3. Drive extremely slow in the left lane.4. Wear your earbuds while driving.  You wouldn't want to hear anything like an ambulance b...
