Welcome! Thank you for visiting my profile. A word about how I started writing on HubPages: After decades of career-building in wide ranging fields -- from radio production and magazine editing to image lab marketing and shopping center property management, I found myself suddenly unemployed in May 2009.

Now what? … Having exorcised my ambition in so many areas, what remained were my original desires, long deferred by years of working -- to write, to read, to travel, to cook, and to discover new things to do and different ways of thinking.

That reminds me of the famous quote -- “Everything that can be invented has been invented” -- attributed to the US. patent office commissioner, Charles H. Duell in 1899!

I am looking forward to finding new topics or at least new angles to create added value on the Internet with my research, insight, and personal experience.

Each one of us has a story to tell and a point of view that make up the world. And since things are always changing, there will always be fresh material to work with.

So, let’s write!

        I think HubPages is just a terrific opportunity for writers to write and make connections within the HubPages community.  However, I am concerned about the quality of some of the hubs I see.  Even if the...

        We're driving from Detroit to Montreal and staying at least a few nights.  On a reasonably modest budget, where do you recommend we stay and what should be the "must do, must see" items on our itinerary?
