Vacation: All I Ever Wanted


The GoRetro blog will be dormant for about a week. In a couple of days, I fly across the pond to London for some much needed R&R. It's been a lifelong dream of mine to visit England, and I still can't quite believe it's really happening. I'll be visiting Stonehenge and at some point during my trip I also plan on taking a Beatles walking tour, which takes you into St. John's Wood to see where the Beatles lived and worked. Of course, I'll also be seeing the infamous Abbey Road and hoping to take lots of pictures. I'm sure some of them and perhaps some other retro related photos will make their way to this blog.

I also want to note that I hit a milestone this week with the number of followers who visit my blog: 25! I'm so grateful and flattered; thank you to all of you from the bottom of my heart. Admitedley, while I do some freelance writing on the side and love posting to my blog, it's not always easy for me to come up with snappy/funny dialogue and original observations on past pop culture...I get a lot of inspiration from visiting the pages of my fellow bloggers. I hope that taking a break will help rejuvenate me for more unique postings.

To help send me off, here's two travel related songs: "Leaving on a Jet Plane" by Peter, Paul and Mary (and John Denver), and "Vacation" by the Go Gos. Ta ta for now, and I'll be back soon!

"Hi:

Two things

1) I’d like your permission to (re)print your article on Mad Men for our website

2) I was hoping we could use your ‘scribing’ talent for our website.

The Best Shows Youre Not Watching (dot) com [all one word]

Mad Men is one of our featured shows. We’re hoping to round up a few people who can occasionally contribute perspective (via an article/blog) on the shows – maybe a recent episode, future direction, plot shortcomings etc.

What’s in it for you?
Primarily a larger audience back channeled to your blog. We don’t pay but the site has a lot of promise and we're pretty excited about getting it off the ground. Let me know what you think.

Thanks
