Ohio's got you covered when it comes to presidents' houses

Ohio's got you covered when it comes to presidents' houses Feb 18th, 2008 at 3:00PM: Ohio has the nickname "Mother of Presidents" because eight U.S. presidents were elected from here. Seven of the eight were born in this state. Although the site of Rutherford B. Hayes' birthplace in Delaware (about 30 minutes from Columbus) is no longer there (I think there's a gas station on the site), there are other presidents' houses and landmarks still standing. A tour of all of them covers...

Greyhound bus line expands its priority boarding system

Greyhound bus line expands its priority boarding system Jan 7th, 2008 at 5:30PM: Back in November, Catherine wrote a post about Greyhound's $5 extra per ticket priority boarding, seat assignment system. After a month of trying it out, the system must be working well because it was expanded in December to include a large portion of Greyhound's departure cities. (see news release) Not all trips from the departure cities are elibible for priority boarding, however. The main...

Pay phone--Cell phone: Guess which one is winning?

Pay phone--Cell phone: Guess which one is winning? Dec 8th, 2007 at 11:00AM: The news is AT&T is going to dump pay phones by 2009. It's already started. Being that I'm a bit of a Luddite, I find this alarming. Sure, as the article states, more and more people have cell phones, "even nine year-olds have a CrackBerry and Bluetooth headset attached to the dome," but I think pay phones serve a function--perhaps not in every location, but I know people who can't afford a...

Creation Museum is paving more parking lot

Creation Museum is paving more parking lot Nov 25th, 2007 at 2:30PM: I am curious about the Creation Museum that's not too far from Cincinnati in northern Kentucky. I pass by a huge billboard for it every time I head to visit my relatives who live near there. The billboard is stuck out in a field next to I-71. Most billboards between Columbus and Cincinnati are set out in fields. That's all there is between the two cities. It's a fairly flat and BORING ride. The...

A Greyhound bus Thanksgiving travel adventure

A Greyhound bus Thanksgiving travel adventure Nov 21st, 2007 at 4:15PM: When we walked into the Greyhound bus station in downtown Columbus today a little after 12 pm to buy my dad a one-way ticket to Cincinnati, he asked my daughter if she'd ever been to the station. "Nooo," she said, her voice implying disdain, as if, why in the world would she ever have the reason to go there. My daughter is 15, so you can imagine. It's the way they talk. My son, who is 5,...

Vintage train stations: Where have all the trains gone?

Vintage train stations: Where have all the trains gone? Nov 9th, 2007 at 12:01PM: My art car friend, Greg Phelps knows a lot about funky travel. He still talks about that crane hotel in the Netherlands that he and his girlfriend stayed in earlier this year after Gadling's suggestion. Today he sent me a travel tidbit that led me to train stations. Here is a Web page link that takes visitors around the U.S. via a combination of vintage postcards and photographs to the train...

Dubai is Getting Taller in One Spot

Dubai is Getting Taller in One Spot Sep 14th, 2007 at 2:17PM: Dubai's tallest building, the Burj Dubai has finally reached the height of being the tallest one in the world, and it's not finished. Now it stands at 1,831.5 feet tall (555 meters), just a bit taller than the CN Tower in Toronto (1,824.9) which was the largest free standing structure. The once tallest building, the Taipei 101 in Taipei, Taiwan, lost it's first place standing in July. Oh, well. In...

Creation Museum: Where People and Dinosaurs Meet

Creation Museum: Where People and Dinosaurs Meet May 27th, 2007 at 5:02PM: First of all, I love Kentucky. I really do. I was born there. I have family still there, but here's a museum that I'm just not too sure about and it happens to be near where my relatives live. Already there's controversy and I almost hesitate to bring it up, but here it goes, The Creation Museum opens tomorrow just south of Cincinnati. The Web site's heading says, "Prepare to Believe." This is an...
