It’s mid-October ALREADY;  lost a week somewhere!  I miss this time of year in New Hampshire as we’d go apple picking (nothing better than a Mac straight from the tree!) and enjoy the cool fresh air & beautiful colors. I use to look forward to this month of four family Birthday’s to celebrate – hubby, […]

Hello….received this email from Huru International….an organization I support and one in which Micato Safaris is a founding partner; and just had to share it with my readers. We women here in the U.S. don’t even think twice when it’s that time of the month.  We can just run to our local supermarket or corner […]

But what about Trigger Finger? Not a pleasant condition to have as you can see by my pictures of my left index finger.  Surgery went well on Wednesday, and although I’m looking forward to no more pain (we hope), the long recovery period puts constraints on what I can do!  My work is pretty much […]

Decided to ‘lighten up’ my blog post today and start with this cute joke – it sure made me chuckle and hope it does the same for you. An elderly couple had dinner at another couple’s house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen.  The two gentlemen were talking, and one […]

As I sit here reading inspirational material, I hear:  the siren of an ambulance going by, car traffic, whirring of the ceiling fan, clicking of my blinds in the fan breeze and whirring of my laptop fan.  These noises remind me of my ‘experience of silence’ during my safari in Kenya.  We have become so noise deaf that […]

Packing for a safari truly is THE easiest of all vacation styles to plan for; unlike some cruises, no formal wear is required; women won’t have to worry about carting makeup, perfume (guests are asked NOT to wear perfume & cologne as it can distract/attract animals!) or blow dryers; and most lodges/camps offer complimentary or […]
