Hack Ride – Mafnood

Today a new horse was presented to me for my morning ride around the farm.  This horse needed a crop as this horse likes to find a patch of sand, and wants to roll – doesn’t matter that I’m on his back! The crop gently reminds him that he can’t do that! However, what happened…

Prague, Czech Republic – Final Days

During the final two days of our stay in Prague (and our vacation), we focused on relaxing as well as food and drink! Take away of a ginormous burrito, squash soup with ham, blue cheese burger and homemade chips! I walked to a local cafe one morning to find us coffee and something for breakfast. Here…

Prague, Czech Republic – The Look!

There is a real sense of specific style here.  The most popular look for women to wear is a ginormous scarf that almost swallows your head with a touque adorned with a big pom pom.  Next is a puffy jacket or a fur jacket (real fur) with skinny pants and boots to the knee. With…
