While filming PBS television episodes at both homes Holly toured with The Countess of Carnarvon at her Castle and Lady Henrietta Spencer- Churchill, the eldest daughter of the 11th Duke of Marlborough, at her childhood home, the grand Palace.

TRAVEL

 

The Grand Canyon at 100

The only one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World in the U.S., the Grand Canyon celebrated its 100th anniversary as a national park in February. Of course it’s much older than that. There’s controversy about how old exactly, but the park states that it “preserves an iconic geologic landscape and resources ranging from 1,840 to 270 million years old.” Human history there can be dated back more than 10,000 years.

Marvelous Montreal

20 Cool Things to Do in Montreal This Summer

It took my family weeks to stop greeting everyone at home with “Bonjour, Hello!” after five days in Montreal. It’s a bilingual city so everyone hedges their bets and uses both salutations, then continues the conversation in whatever language you answer in. This was just one way the city makes it easy for visitors. Montreal is clean and safe, the subways are easy to use (and kids ride free on weekends), people are friendly, it’s incredibly international, and there’s such an amazing number of things to do and neighborhoods to explore that five days didn’t feel like enough.

The Art of Baby Steps
 

“Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together,” Vincent Van Gogh. It was just the other day that I had an inspiring conversation with a good friend. Like most of my conversations, they usually consist of something fitness related. (Deep down I think we are all a little fitness obsessed.) This friend had just turned a corner in her health and fitness regimen. She eliminated her cravings to eat at night. She feels great! To be honest this achievement doesn’t come easily. Read More…
