Naughty Bilingual Sign In Tallinn Airport, Estonia

Naughty Bilingual Sign In Tallinn Airport, Estonia Feb 17th, 2013 at 2:00PM: I think I'm going to like Estonia ... This country of 1.3 million people only has a little more than 900,000 people who speak Estonian as their native language yet they're confident enough with their national tongue to make a bilingual joke right as you enter the airport in the capital city of Tallinn. Language was politics in the old Soviet republics, and for the long decades during which...

Police Hunt For Lion In English Countryside (And Fail To Find One)

Police Hunt For Lion In English Countryside (And Fail To Find One) Aug 27th, 2012 at 1:00PM: A mysterious beast stalks the fields of Essex, England. Over the weekend local police received calls from a number of eyewitnesses who claimed to have seen a lion in the fields near the village of St. Osyth. One person even snapped a predictably blurry and inconclusive picture of the beast. I'm not a wildlife expert but it looks like a house cat to me. Police took the sightings seriously...

The Bachelorette heads to Fiji for tonight's episode

The Bachelorette heads to Fiji for tonight's episode Jul 25th, 2011 at 2:00PM: One of our favorite parts about hit ABC television series The Bachelor / Bachelorette is the final few weeks. This is not because it showcases the show's main contestant falling in love with multiple men and women, or because of the cheesy "fantasy suite" overnights. It's because of the far-flung and romantic locations the contestants visit that give us inspiration for our own honeymoons ......

Live like "The Bachelor" in Anguilla at CuisinArt Resort with a special package offering

Live like Feb 14th, 2011 at 10:00AM: Those of us who watch The Bachelor know the deal – by the time the field narrows to just a few lucky ladies or gents, the bachelor or bachelorette of choice whisks them off to a "magical" and "romantic" locale. Past seasons have seen cast members travel to Istanbul, New Zealand and Tahiti, but this season brings us slightly...

Best college restaurant: Good Morning America wants your vote

Best college restaurant: Good Morning America wants your vote Nov 19th, 2010 at 11:30AM: For most of us, college was a low period in our culinary lives. Ramen, macaroni and cheese, beer for breakfast. . .ah, the memories! When we got tired of contributing to our freshman fifteen with junk food, there was always that one place that served up something a little better, a little special. If you've been to college, or even if you haven't, I bet you just thought of that place right now....

I Survived a Japanese Game Show: Round three. Back on track

I Survived a Japanese Game Show: Round three. Back on track Jul 15th, 2008 at 1:00PM: When traveling time zones, it's a good idea to remember that TV schedules change. When I sat down to watch the 3rd episode of "I Survived a Japanese Game Show," in St. Cloud, Minnesota where were were visiting friends on our way to Montana, I forgot it was Central Time. The show comes on ABC at 8:00 p.m. in St. Cloud and not at 9:00 like in Columbus. The show had just ended. We proceeded to...

I Survived a Japanese Game Show starts tonight

I Survived a Japanese Game Show starts tonight Jun 24th, 2008 at 9:30AM: There's a new reality TV show that starts on ABC tonight. It could either be really funny or absolutely awful. I Survived a Japanese Game Show took 10 contestants--six women and four men-- to Japan where they competed in some sort of wacky game show called Majide in front of a Japanese audience. Not only do the contestants compete in the game show, they are immersed in aspects of Japanese culture...

New reality show: Americans go to a foreign country

New reality show: Americans go to a foreign country Mar 20th, 2008 at 10:00AM: It is kind of sad when a country needs to wrap a reality show around foreign travel. At the same time, if this is the way to get more Americans to travel abroad, more power to ABC. ABC has ordered a new unscripted show from the producer of "Hell's Kitchen" in which Americans go to a foreign country to compete in challenges. The series might be called "Big in Japan" (sorry, Matthew) and is supposed...

Flying on the Busiest Day of the Year

Flying on the Busiest Day of the Year Nov 26th, 2006 at 11:16AM: Philadelphia watch out! I'm going to be famous! Okay, not really famous, but maybe famous for thirty seconds or so... After shuffling off my flight from Tampa, FL, I made way down to baggage claim where I noticed the news folks out and about with their cameras ready to make some news. First they nabbed a mother of one (easy target) and probed her on today's flying situation. Being a mother of what...
