The History Of Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari [VIDEO]

This weekend I was watching a documentary about Santa Claus Land/Holiday World.  I had no idea it first opened 65 years ago in 1946, The world's 1st theme park (pre-dating Disneyland by 18 years).  I remember when I was a kid Splashin' Safari didn't even exist at Holiday World, Splashin' Safari came along in 1993.

Jimmy Wayne Trek Subject of New Documentary

Last year, Jimmy Wayne was a world-beater--or, at the very least, a nation beater--as he walked a 1700-mile journey to raise awareness of the issue of foster children who age out of the foster care program and may become homeless. He began on January 1, 2010 in Nashville and finished in Phoenix. Jimmy, himself, spent a great deal of time as a young man in foster care. And now, that pilgrimage will be the focus of a new documentary.

LIVE AQUA: Chad’s Vacation Resort Destination

I have been in Mexico many times but have never stayed for a prelonged period.  When I used to live in San Diego all my visiting friends would want to head south of the border to Tijuana.  Now, if you've never been there, picture this.  Dirt, sweat, the smell of roasting pig, taxi cab drivers who drive like maniacs, people trying to sell you everything from blankets to sombreros to Chicklets, and bar owners screaming "Free margaritas for the ladies!!"  It's awful!  Thankfully, other parts of Mexico, like Cancun (where I was last week) are BEAUTIFUL!  And I spent 8 days and 7 nights in a coastal paradise called LIVE AQUA

Semis Will Keep on Truckin’…Just Not Through Downtown Owensboro

Hopefully, the woes of the weary trucker won't be exacerbated too much now that heavy truck traffic has been re-routed around downtown Owensboro. It has become necessary to have the three-plus axle haulers or the 40,000 pounders--if not one in the same-- removed from the complicated Second Street equation. Even during the most minimal traffic situations, downtown Owensboro is kind of a nightmare while the Riverfront Crossing project continues at Second and St. Ann.

It’s a Country Music Summer at Gaylord Opryland Resort

It was another awesome live broadcast from the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. I usually get to do two a year--one in the summer, one around Christmas time. Last summer, the hotel was still recovering and rebuilding from the flood that devastating much of Nashville in May 2010. I was able to return last November and this past Thursday I was joined on the air by the director of public relations for Gaylord Opryland, Jenny Barker along with marketing and PR coordinator Rob Regg. They shared all the scoop about Country Music Summer at Gaylord...and a sneak peek at what we can look forward to this Christmas.

A Kentucky Girl in Indiana

I've done a lot of traveling in the past two weeks most especially to portions of Indiana that I've passed through but never really stopped in for a walk and a talk. Luckily the RC Cola Challenge has opened up an opportunity for me to not just pass through but stop in and visit too.

One of the most fun places (and delicious places, too) to visit in the Owensboro area is Chaney's Dairy Barn and Restaurant in Bowling Green. A really family-friendly establishment with not only great food but music and a movie, or as they say a "moo-vie". Monday Chad and I spoke with Carl Chaney abou

Embalm Your Pennies, Oh the Places You Will Go

A few years ago, I checked on how much it would cost a family of four to spend a week at the Orlando Disney Megaplex. After putting my eyes back in my head and lifting my jaw off the floor (I beat the 5-second rule), I asked my mother how it was possible for the four of us--her, my dad, my sister, and me--to go to Disney World and spend a week when I was a kid. She told me that it was a combination of income tax returns and Dad's old embalming machine. Yes, you read that right.

Vacation All I Ever Wanted

Taking vacations are a rarity for yours truly.  And 99.9% of my vacations are taken with my family, and there's nothing wrong with that.  I don't always jump at the chance to go somewhere for an extended time period with my parents.  However, I wanted to this time because my sister and her husband were going.  This was probably the last time before my sister Hillary gives birth to her first child in August that we would all be able to get away one last time.  So where did we go?
