Originally named The Ballpark at Union Station, Enron Field, and Astros Field, Minute Maid Park opened in 2000 and is Houston’s first retractable-roofed stadium. The largest entrance to the park is inside what was once Houston’s Union Station, and the left-field side of the stadium features a railway as homage to the site’s history. The train moves along a track on top of the length of the exterior wall beyond left field whenever an Astros player hits a home run and/or the Astros win a game. It was so cool to see. I’ve seen it many times on TV but so cool to see in person. Continue reading Minute Maid Park and the Houston Astros
I am very excited that fall is almost here, and that also means the return of green chilies as well as Good Times Burgers and Frozen Custard’s Hatch Valley Green Chile Menu. I am embarrassed to admit that my husband and I have lived here for almost 10 years, but I had not tried any food with green chilies which Coloradans boast about so proudly. Thus we a representative reached out and asked me if I was willing to try an item off of their Green Chile Menu for a blog post, I was more than happy to oblige. We decided to visit the location in Westminster, CO off of 92nd and Wadsworth. We had been here quite a few times, and enjoy sitting outside on their patio when it isn’t too hot or too cold. The restaurant is in a little shopping center and there is usually plenty of parking. Continue reading Hatch Valley Green Chile Torta at Good Times Burgers and Frozen Custard
We travel a lot and I enjoy it mostly, however flying has become less enjoyable every year. There are a few reasons for this, but the main one of course is TSA. I will not go into what a pathetic use of tax-payers money this organization is (what’s the point) or how I don’t feel much safer flying, as this is not what this post is about. Continue reading Don’t Panic at the Airport. Here are Ways to Save Time.
Living in the Here and Now is something that many of us can’t do. While there are many that can do this, there are many others who are always looking at what’s next, or what tomorrow will bring. They are not living the moment and enjoying what today holds. It is understandable, and I admit I have been a little bit this way too Continue reading Living in the Here and Now with the Future in Mind
While on a trip to Albuquerque, NM to see the annual Balloon Fiesta we added in an extra couple of day s to check out Santa Fe. We have been to many state capitol buildings as we have traveled the US, however, one of the most interesting we visited was the New Mexico State Capitol. Not only is it the only round state capitol in the United States (also known informally as “the Roundhouse”) it was also designed to resemble the Zia Sun Symbol when viewed from above. The capitol contains 232,346 square feet and was dedicated on December 8, 1966. Continue reading New Mexico State Capitol in Santa Fe – The Land of Enchantment
