BEIJING, CHINA, August 1, 2015 -
This afternoon Claudia and I will board a United Airways jumbo jet for the long flight home to the good ole U.S. of A. Our flight leaves Beijing at 4:00 p.m. today. It arrives in Chicago at 4:00 p.m. today.
During my brief time in China, I’ve learned that I have at least one important thing in common with the Chinese people. I’m a sports fan, and this is one sports-crazy nation.
SHANGHAI: Ni Hao from China where it is already tomorrow! China is a day ahead of Tennessee. Actually it’s about a century ahead.
On Tuesday during my lunch hour, I made a beeline to Burke’s Book Store in midtown Memphis.
Burke’s is one of my favorite places in Memphis.
It is literally a literary landmark.
It is summertime, and the living is not exactly easy.
Why? Simple. It’s that stressful time of the year again when American families take part in that time-honored tradition, The Summer Vacation in Florida.
