Spring is Rolling on the River
April 10, 2019

It finally happened! Spring is rolling on the river, and Mary couldn't be prouder! You may be wondering what flowers in a riverside park and this John Fogerty classic might have in common. Other than both being in my head, and on the river, nothing I suppose. The real question you have to ask yourself is "Who'll stop the rain"? Or for that matter "Have you ever seen the rain, on Green River, Looking Out My Back Door?" Bad Moon Growing up, songs...

Visitor To Yeatman’s Cove
April 5, 2019

Murphy greets a new visitor to Yeatman's Cove Park. There is a new addition to the park today. We discovered Mr Red, sitting on a newly installed bench emblazoned with the 150th Reds Celebration logo. Murphy was not the only interested party, as folks walking through the park stopped for a photo-shoot with the Cincinnati icon. More where that came from I discovered that there are 14 benches planned around the city, each with Mr Red in...

Do Dogs Have A Sense Of Humor?
April 3, 2019

I will leave you with this picture of Murphy laughing, to get you over the hump this week. Wishing you a...

What Kind Of People?
April 2, 2019

Murphy and I spend much time on the Purple People Bridge. It is a quick walk to all the amenities at Newport On The Levee. But of all the times we have traveled that road, the question begs, What Kind Of People? Murphy says he has never seen or smelled any purple folks on the bridge, so why is it called that? Formally known as the Newport Southbank Bridge, this former railroad bridge opened in 1872. After years of neglect, it was restored in 2001,...

Half Day Cafe
March 30, 2019

The Half Day Cafe in Cincinnati on Wyoming Ave, serves a lovely vegetarian friendly meal in Picturesque Wyoming. Not vegetarian? Not to worry. The goetta hash and applewood smoked bacon are great, but the star? Ginger Broiled Grapefruit! Yes, you read me right. A half grapefruit covered in a ginger sugar concoction, then off to the broiler. There are many other creative dishes on the menu as well. So if you have the chance, make your way over, but...
