I haven’t lived in Kansas City since 2000, but have family and many friends there, so I visit frequently. That’s why I can say, with much confidence, that Daniel Mueller, Digital Editor at Sun Times Network, is…
He recently posted a list of the Top Ten Mexican Restaurants in Kansas City and did not include my personal favorite:
When I return to Kansas City, a trip to Margarita’s is always at the top of my list. I love their chips and salsa, their nachos, their daily specials, and signature margaritas, too. Plus, the general vibe of the place is just casual and comfortable and feels like home.
Don’t get me wrong — there are some great Mexican restaurants on Daniel’s list. But if a friend or visitor to Kansas City asked me where to go, I’d still point them to the place on Southwest Boulevard…
…with the flood line on the wall.

I have been on vacation in Central Kentucky this week.
It’s in my rear view mirror now, but the memories are crystal clear.

…when you’re traveling, that is.
Will get where I’m going soon!
I am in Dallas tonight, site of the 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship, so I’ve seen quite a few fans in both the airport and my hotel.
More Ohio State than Oregon, I must admit.
A few of the Ohio State fans have been proudly sporting their buckeye necklaces (left).
Do you have yours?
I recognized the nut — and probably know the candy even better — but didn’t realize that wearing them was an Ohio State ‘thing.’
A quick Google search confirmed it, and explained the necklace’s origin. Turns out they didn’t get their start at Ohio State —
Presidential candidate and Ohio native William Henry Harrison used decorative buckeyes in his campaign way back in 1840.
Political nuts. How perfect.

“…what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.”
— Liam Neeson, Taken
Do you really, Liam?
Your daughter gets abducted in the original Taken.
You and your wife get kidnapped in the sequel.
And now your wife gets killed in Taken 3?
I travel all the time, frequently to exotic ports of call, and — knock wood — have somehow managed to avoid kidnappers and murderers (although, I will admit, I have come close to killing a few airport employees from time to time).
So, tell me, Liam…
What exactly are these special skills you possess?

Television news anchors will be reciting Morton Salt‘s famed slogan “When it rains, it pours” ad nauseam tonight after a wall collapsed at a plant outside Chicago, spilling salt all over cars in an Acura dealership next door.
Within minutes, two separate delivery trucks carrying lemons and bottles of tequila crashed into that very same lot.
No one was injured, but many people were reportedly smashed.

When you travel for business, you pack a lot. You get it down to a science.
I can pack for most trips 10 minutes before I leave.
Personal trips are a completely different story.
I don’t know exactly what I am going to be doing every hour of the trip. There is no ‘uniform’ that I can put on for each activity. Plus, my vacations are usually a bit longer…and I have to pack for the dog, too.
And he likes to have a lot of choices.
