The Race
Welcome New Subscribers! 
The upcoming holiday weekend is known for two events here in Indiana.  The most important is that we remember those who have fought for our freedom. My post next week will be dedicated to that memory.
Today, though, I'm thinking about the other weekend event - The Indianapolis 500. My husband, daughter and I drove down to watch the time trials last Saturday. The weather was nearly perfect.  The crowds for the time trials are thin, so you can get a taste of the race while still having room to stretch out - very comfortable. We packed our lunch, so the cost for the day was minimal.  
I am not into racing.  Some of my family members like NASCAR, but I've never watched it.  I do love watching the Indy 500, though, and it has become tradition for our family to look over the field and take turns picking drivers.  Then we'll have chips and cheese and sub sandwiches while we watch the race.  
Memorial Day weekend - the official start of summer.  How do you celebrate?
Enjoy the posts this week. Please share the newsletter with your family and friends!

The cathedral is located on the Île de la Cité, one of the two small islands in the middle of the Seine River. Construction began over 850 years ago on the building dedicated to “Our Lady, ” or Mary, the mother of Jesus.

A visit to Paris would not be complete without at least walking through this grand structure, but...

Planning your Itinerary - More Lodging Options

Last week I wrote about finding very inexpensive lodging. I promised to write about other options this week, so here goes…

My favorite places to stay have been small hotels or bed and breakfasts (B&Bs).  Staying in this type of accommodation is a good way to experience the local culture.  The furniture and artwork, along with the linens, usually represent what the local people would use in their own homes.  The owners or managers are good sources for restaurant and activity recommendations...
