On a trip to St. Petersburg/Tampa in May of 1999, we visited the Salvador Dali Museum. For those of you who are not familiar with Dali, he has been called The man, The master, and The marvel. Whatever you called him, he was a surrealist artist who was born in Figueres, Spain, on May 11, 1904. He always took great risks and proved how rich the world can be when you dare to embrace pure, boundless creativity. Continue reading “The Salvador Dalí Museum – St. Petersburg, Florida”

My favorite amusement park is Knott’s Berry Farm in California, and one of October’s best things to do is spend an evening at their annual Knott’s Scary Farm. According to Knott’s, it all began in September of 1973. The park was getting rid of Gypsy Camp, and between the marketing and entertainment departments, they introduced a new concept–a Halloween-themed event for the evenings of October 26 to 28. Halloween Haunt was born. It is now known as Knott’s Scary Farm!
