Derby Home Rental adds Flipboard magazine, About.me profile

Derby Home Rental LLCDerby Home Rental, my business that advertises Louisville, Kentucky-area homes to rent on Derby weekend, just added a Flipboard magazine and About.me profile. Will they make a huge difference in helping renters find my site in 2016? Not sure, but they can’t hurt.

They join social media accounts Derby Home Rental already has on

Derby 2015 was another record year for Derby Home Rental LLC with 58 homes advertising and 38 of them renting—both all-time highs. And 2016 looks like it’s off to an even better start.

I wrote about BBQ for Visit the USA and then visited my local BBQ joint because I have no restraint

Visit the USABrand USA’s Visit the USA website, which encourages travelers abroad to, well, visit the USA, just published two articles I wrote:

In a related story, Pitmasters Back Alley BBQ just opened in DC, about two blocks away from my house, and I’ve been ordering from it weekly. With no dine-in option, it didn’t qualify for my articles. But if you’re in DC, you’d be well advised to call in an order and just picnic some place.

I argue for taking a cruise with the kids in ‘Condé Nast Traveler’s’ January 2016 issue

Condé Nast Traveler January 2016 coverThe January 2016 issue of Condé Nast Traveler includes my article “Two Very Good Arguments to Take a Cruise Right Now—With the Kids … “.

(In case you’re curious, the other argument is for taking a cruise without the kids. And it’s pretty persuasive.)

You can pick up Condé Nast Traveler wherever fine magazines are sold. Update Jan. 12, 2016: My article now appears online as well.

And if this article has you hankering for more articles and videos from me on Disney Cruise Line, you’re in luck:

‘Secret Ocean 3D’ flash review

Secret Ocean 3DSaturday I saw Secret Ocean 3DJean-Michel Cousteau’s look at the smallest life in the sea. Some thoughts:

  • Even in 3D, watching plankton feed is not interesting.
  • On the other hand, seeing a sea cucumber in 3D summon all of its energy to stiffen and shoot out some spawn is fascinating.
  • Speaking of which, over the years, how many sea animals have accidentally tried to reproduce with a Cousteau wetsuit?
  • This film will reinforce any fears you may have regarding vagina dentata.
