Mr. Toledano will see you now.

Vacation Close to Home

AAA magazine inspired me to take a closer look at my own state for travel ideas. About an hour north from Roanoke on I-81, there's the Theater at Lime Kiln, "where entertainment comes naturally." If you decide to stay the night, there are cabins for rent and bed & breakfast resorts nearby in Lexington.

For a closer look at the area, the Lexington Carriage Company offers narrated tours through the business district, the adjacent college campuses, and a portion of the historic residential area. Natural Bridge and the Virginia Safari Park are on the way to your next stop: the Route 11 Potato Chip Factory. It's about an hour north of Lexington on I-81 in Middleton, VA.

When you've had enough of the spudmasters, turn the corner past Front Royal via I-66 and Route 340 to access Skyline Drive. At Shenandoah National Park, you can hike, bike, fish, camp, or just relax and enjoy nature's beauty. Sounds like a plan to me, and you're never more than 3 hours from home.

Lifelong Learner

No time for these free classes right now, but maybe in the future.

Pale Force

This cartoon has been around for awhile on the Conan show but I don't stay up that late. Especially funny for a white girl like me! Next new episode airs January 17.
