Online Traveling 14: Indiana.

Photo by Laura Tancredi on Pexels.com

I cannot believe it took me three days to come up with a pattern for my next crochet project. I know it was mostly my fault, because I was trying to combine two different patterns together and neither one was having that.

I am doing a basic half double crochet stitch as I look through videos about? Where am I going today? When I checked my list of states and territory of the United States and realized Indiana was or is the 14th state. All I heard was Micheal Jackson voice singing “Going Back to Indiana,” and I am going to have to google to see if that is a song. (I know I am not that old and I should remember these things).

I was right. I just watched a video (I will not add it, because I don’t have any rights to it) and now that I think about it he was from Gary Indiana. Guess where I am going first?

{} Gary City in Indiana Description :   Gary is a city in Lake County, Indiana, United States, 25 miles from downtown Chicago, Illinois. Gary is adjacent to the Indiana Dunes   National Park and borders  southern Lake Michigan. Gary was named after lawyer Elbert Henry Gary, who was the founding chairman of the United States Steel Corporation.  Wikipedia{}

GARY INDIANA FULL DRIVING VIDEO 2021. THIS IS WHAT GARY INDIANA LOOKS LIKE JUNE 2021
ZPierre509  HELLO THIS IS MY DRIVING IN GARY INDIANA FULL EXPERIENCE IN JUNE 2021.{}

#1 This part of Gary Indiana is like a lot of areas where there isn’t enough money to keep the area where life can grow. There may have been a few abandoned buildings  from business and homes that showed life was there at one time. I am sure the people who are living here are doing the best they can and maybe someday, someone will come, and do a makeover (not raising money to those who are already living there) to bring life back to a forgotten part of Gary Indiana.

J5LOVER   In this episode of J5Lover I visit the original Jackson family home in Gary, Indiana and meet up with other fans and Youtubers on the 12th anniversary of Michael Jackson’s passing June 25th! {}

#2  I should watch the video again, because I forgot her name. Anyway, I do agree with her. I heard the house where the Jackson family grew up was small, but I am beyond surprised how small.  

We all are here, because of our past. One can either learn from it and try to move forward to improve on  how we live,  the way we act, and be better than what we were yesterday.

Good – Bye Gary Indiana there isn’t much more to see here today, but who knows what a few years will bring.

#3 Another place where there are fun things to do in nature. I may not be the one who would go camping, (unless it is in a log cabin with a few mardon items) but someone may like this idea.  I would rather go when there aren’t a lot of people. One cannot think if there is too much going on around them. (at least for me)

#5  This video showed you places where one can live in a quiet area and still be close to a city for things to do and where you can go shopping. I know I couldn’t live anywhere if I couldn’t go shopping every once in a while..

*** Side Note:  I am bored. Let me go to another city and see if there is more to this state..

#6 Now this is a NICE side track video. Yes, I am still in Indiana, but it has nothing to do with the state, but more on honoring our Troops. I wish I could do something to say, “Thank You” to everyone who has served and is serving to not only protect their hometown, but others they do not know.

*** Okay, I didn’t see any video that I wanted to look at. I was considering going to another city, but I believe I am done searching. I guess I am more interested in working on my bright pink project then I am hoping to find a new anime to watch while I work on my project.

These are the colors I am working on now. I know I am going to run out of yarn, but at least I will have something to do for a few days. And maybe just maybe I will be able to go to Micheal’s and enjoy a day of yarn shopping.  Until next time I hope everyone enjoy some free time with family & friends…

Bye IV, Now LD*

Traveling Online 8: Delaware

I cannot believe I was about to give up on my idea of traveling online to see the States across America, because I got bored. Not every State will be exciting, but I am sure I can find something enjoyable to watch. I will not give up just to prove myself “right”.  My next stop is Delaware. I have no idea where it is or anything about this state. I can’t wait to learn something new and hopefully fun….

{} Delaware US State

Description: Delaware , a small Mid-Atlantic U.S. state, sits on a peninsula marked by dune-backed beaches bordering the Atlantic Ocean, Delaware River and Delaware Bay. In Dover, the capital, First State Heritage Park encompasses 18th-century Colonial landmarks like the Georgian-style Old State House.

WILMINGTON •Jun 27, 2020

maXimum DR    Wilmington 4K driving downtown Delaware USA 

Wilmington Downtown As of the 2019 United States Census estimate, the city’s population is 70,166.[4] It is the fifth least populous city in the U.S. to be the most populous in its state.[citation needed] The Wilmington Metropolitan Division, comprising New Castle County, DE, Cecil County, MD and Salem County, NJ, had an estimated 2016 population of 719,887.[7] The Delaware Valley metropolitan area, which includes the cities of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Camden, New Jersey, had a 2016 population of 6,070,500, and a combined statistical area of 7,179,357.{}

#1 : I surprised myself by watching a video without sound. Then again I clicked on four videos before this one and two sounded like a robot and the others I couldn’t get past the unusual sound supposed to be someone’s voice.

Side note : I made a video or two (not on YouTube and not that long)and my voice was not as clear and didn’t sound like myself, so I got it, but there was no way I was going to enjoy a twenty minute long video if I was trying to block out their voices.. Sorry…

I opened another page and started listening to jazz as I watched this city  and working on my “Baby Blue” crochet project. I liked the building and even saw a corner store and that brought a smile. It reminded me of the time I spent in New York, where you can find almost anything in a corner store.

Three things caught my attent within this video:

  1.  Delaware Historical Society – This was a cool sign that is like a small bridge  above the city street.
  2. A building called “Queen”
  3. Another building called “ Milk & Honey” I believe is a coffee shop. About to see if I am right?

Welcome to Delaware Latvis HIST705 •Feb 26, 2021 Carmen Latvis   This is a project for HIST705{}

#1.1 ~ I enjoyed learning more about this state and the old time homes  and a lot of information. It is fun to learn something new….

{} https://thequeenwilmington.com/about/

VENUE’S HISTORY  

All hail her royal highness, The Queen! Originally built in the 1800s, “The Indian Queen Hotel” was a popular place for traveling sailors to spend the night. From 1916-1959, the hotel was repurposed into a movie theater and brought joy to thousands of locals. Sadly, it was abandoned and sat dormant for over 50 years. With water pouring through the ceilings, the walls caving in, and the façad. e crumbling, this majestic theater had become a faded memory of Market Street’s vibrant past. However, as all good leaders do, The Queen found her way back to the throne and reopened her doors to the people on April 1st, 2011. Today, she stands as one of the most historic buildings and theaters in Wilmington, Delaware.

#1.2  ~  Isn’t a video, but highlights about this building that has a history of entertaining for years ago and brought back to life to continue with its path. If you go to The Queen’s website (above info) you can take a virtual tour of the building.

Side Note: In my younger days I could see myself going to a concert here and enjoying dancing along with others enjoying some good music. I don’t see a gospel or an artist who plays jazz performing here. Then again I could be wrong. I can see myself in a private event, something special, and to remember.

UPDATE ON LOMA COFFEE


After 10 years of operating Loma Coffee as a place to make the community feel welcome and well-served, it is bittersweet to announce that Loma Coffee has turned over the coffee shop operation to the Milk and Honey Café at Loma. Milk & Honey will begin serving its notable style of coffee and handcrafted meals to the Lower market community in early October.

Sycamore Hill Church-Wilmington will continue its partnership in this space with the purpose of remaining a neighbor and spiritual resource for the community. {}

# 1.3  ~ I was right about the building “Milk & Honey,” but it took me awhile to locate the one I saw. There are two cafe’s with this same name and I read a little of each . It got me thinking I would like to go to this café and try their coffee and enjoy a meal. (Well, if they had anything that didn’t have any meat in it, because I am still cutting that mostly out of my diet) 

Side Note: So far Milk & Honey is the  only thing that I find interesting about Delaware, but this is a chain café and I do recall seeing one in Queens. My hometown in New York and Queens isn’t that far away.

I almost passed over looking at this site, because of the name. I am glad I looked at the building on  239 N. Market St, because this is the building I saw. I wonder if you could order a bag or two of coffee?? 

Before I go and pick up my light blue project (which is a little bigger then what is shown in this picture) I believe I will try and find one more video….

I have no interest in sports or the top college there is in Delaware. I did find two more 4K videos, but they have no sounds and I don’t feel like listening as I watch them drive around. It was nice the first time and I am sure I may see something I might like, but I was looking for more information.

{} New Castle City in Delaware

Description: New castle is a city in New Castle County, Delaware, United State, six miles south of Wilmington, and situated on the Delaware River. According to the 2010 Census, the population of the city is 5,285. Wikipedia. {}

The Country Starts in New Castle, Delaware

Travel with Trey     Travel with Trey to the city where the country began to take shape on a collision course with independence from England. Prior to Philadelphia’s prominence on the national stage, New Castle was an influential colonial town where politicians, pugilists, and commoners gathered to stake a claim in the new land. New Castle quickly became identified with one of the first seats of government. William Penn first set foot here on the new land, and the “First State” was declared here at the New Castle courthouse.

#2 I am so glad I didn’t give up on Delaware. Thanks Google:  The 10 Best Places To Live In Delaware For 2021 

  • Milton – Newark – Wyoming – Bellefonte – Rehoboth Beach – Townsend – New Castle – Clayton.

The word castle caught my attention first and thought why not look up NewCastle and I am glad I did. There was a nice looking building and it looked like a cool place to take long walks.

Side Note: I am beyond curious about Newark in Delaware, because I thought it was just in New Jersey.  I am going to have to go off route and and compare these two cities before I continue with my regular traveling.

{} Newark (/ˈnuːɑːrk/ NEW-ark) is a city in New Castle County, Delaware, United States. It is located 12 miles (19 km) west-southwest of Wilmington. According to the 2010 Census, the population of the city is 31,454. Newark is home to the University of Delaware.

Traveling Online #7: Connecticut

My next stop in Connecticut and as I was looking at a list of America’s States. There was a time when I knew them by heart. I am surprised I don’t remember them all, because of the amount of time I spent memorizing each one. Then again that was more than 30 years ago.. In this new age where one can sit at a desk where there is a computer and an answer to almost every question that can be asked….

{} Connecticut US State

Description Connecticut is a U.S. state in southern New England that has a mix of coastal cities and rural areas dotted with small towns. Mystic is famed for its Seaport museum filled with centuries-old ships, and the beluga whale exhibits at Mystic Aquarium. On Long Island Sound, the city of New Haven is known as the home of Yale University and its acclaimed Peabody Museum of Natural History. ― Google {}

New Yorkers are MOVING here?:Walking Stamford, CT Downtown (1/25/ 2021)

ActionKid    I walk in the downtown area of Stamford, CT. I exit a Metro-North train at the Stamford Station, walk on South State Street, north on Atlantic Street, and then west on Broad Street to the Mill River Park. {}

#1 This video was a little sad, because after getting off of the train there wasn’t any sound or any kind of information. I came close to stop watching this video and moving on, but my list of videos was low. I did fast forward stopping when I came across something that caught my attention and hoping I could figure out what it was.

  1. The library was colorful and I liked the building…
  2. A set of trees in an open space where there were some names on a small wavy wall, across the street from a fancy Target.
  3. A nice walk way where I could imagine sitting on a bench and enjoying a book.

It still would have been nice to know what I was looking at, because I’m sure that walkway had a name. Oh well, I am hoping to have better luck with the next video, because so far I am a little bored…..

MR Journey   Beluga Whales of The Mystic Aquarium , Mystic, CT 2021. First time we are visit Mystic Aquarium. We are very excited to see Beluga and Shark and lots of Ocean Fish.{}

#2 Once again I started to end a video, before I was done with it, because if I cannot understand what is being said in a video it wasn’t meant for me. Then just as the pointer was inches away from the stop button, there were some kids and “yes” they spoke English.

**Side note: Please don’t take my words out of order. I believe if a person can speak more than one language and it is their history PLEASE talk and teach the next generation, so your history won’t be lost. Teach it to others so we can learn and understand each other. So, I apologize if I miss and hurt someone’s feelings.

I had to fast forward the video. I am not really a sea person, well I like an open space. There were some pretty colorful fishes and loud sea animals .

#3 No, I did not watch this whole video. I have bored myself out. I found a few other videos, but nothing worth watching I am sorry to say. I am sure Connecticut is a cool place to visit and I am just just finding a good video. 

Side note: I wish I hadn’t cut the boring videos and was thinking about adding them anyway, but I didn’t want to bore anyone else. One was more information, more of a history report (on the rich & poor side of town), the others a drive through with no sound, the wind, a piano (which was nice), and some talking, and nothing worth me adding to my page.

Meg’s Adventtures  Follow along with my adventures to one of my new favorite states, Connecticut!! I literally felt like I was in a fairy tale, it was so magical. This was state number 8 on this road trip{}

#4 I was more than surprised when I came across Meg’s site and was “Happy” I even subscribbed (which I don’t normally do). I am also happy she had a safe place to stay one night, but I wouldn’t recommend staying at a  stranger’s place. Then again I am old and scary? I guess it comes from looking at the news for too long.

Well, I am going to cut my time in Connecticut and move onto my next project. I am basically avoiding working on my next book, because I don’t want to work out a major conflict between two sisters. Again another misunderstanding that could have been settled if people would just talk to each other….

 My next State will be  Delaware.  Time for a cup of coffee and back to work….

Bye IV Now, LD*

PS –

I type in Google doc and it is so NICE and then I get to my blog site and its a mess. I enjoy writing for fun, but I am thinking about giving it up, because I HATE this New Age stuff.

Traveling Online #5: California part 2…

#1 – I had to go through five videos before I found one I liked. This one is another one driving through with good information and a nice sound to go along with the nice scenery in California.

It may just be me, but I have always liked looking out the window as I ride down the street. I would imagine what is down the way and hope we would go a different way.

The main goal for this video is simple, I will share some of the history of this place, show you some of the amazing views you can get as you go through it, and share some cool facts about it as well. {}

#2   I saw a trolley and thought one cannot go to California without riding on one and Lombard Street  was heard from my previous video. I was really about to give up after 20 minutes and couldn’t find a video worth watching more than a few seconds.  “I am not a quitter” and came across this video.

Side note: This video didn’t just show pictures, but gave some information about this street that I would never drive on (well ride in a car, because I do not drive).

Eryn Krouse    Hey everyone! I’ve been craving Mediterranean Sea summer vibes, and I definitely got a taste of it on my two day trip to Catalina Island. Located only 22 miles off the coast of Southern California, Catalina Island is a fantastic destination for a day trip or a multi-day vacation. There is so much to see, do, and explore here, from bison tours, sport fishing, parasailing, scuba diving, sunbathing at Descanso Beach Club, fine dining, hiking, camping, and so much more. 

A huge thank you to Visit Catalina Island (http://www.visitcatalinaisland.com​) for hosting us!

I just wished there were a few extra masks being worn, but other than that I still want to visit…..

America Online Part 3: Arizona..

The first thing that came to my mind when I realized Arizona was my next stop was Charles Barlkey. Well, The Phoenix Suns (basketball team) anyway, and “No I am not going to talk about basketball.

{}Arizona US State

Description: Arizona, a southwestern U.S. state, is best known for the Grand Canyon, the mile-deep chasm carved by the Colorado River. Flagstaff, a ponderosa pine-covered mountain town, is a major gateway to the Grand Canyon. Other  natural sites include Saguaro National Park, protecting cactus-filled Sonoran Desert landscape. Tucson isUniversity of Arizona territory and home to the Arizona-Sonora Museum. – Google{}

Since, I am in the middle of correcting a problem. (I noticed as I was spelling out “Happy Birthday” I was going to run out of room. I was about to start watching a movie, but  then I realized I was rather watch something that is real – Online real anyway.

📍Unforgettable Sedona experience must include spending time at internationally renowned Tlaquepaque (pronounced T-la-keh-pah-keh), Sedona Arizona’s Arts & Crafts Village, on of the best things to do in Sedona. Nestled beneath the shade of the sycamores on the banks of beautiful Oak Creek in Sedona, Tlaquepaque is the most distinctive Sedona shopping experience to be found in the Southwest. Authentically fashioned after a traditional Mexican village, Tlaquepaque, meaning the “best of everything,” has been a Sedona landmark since the 1970’s. Its vine covered stucco walls, cobble-stoned walkways and magnificent arched entryways give you the feeling that Tlaquepaque has been here for centuries. Tasteful galleries and unique shops live in harmony with its lush natural environment where giant sycamore trees stand in testimony to the care taken in preserving the timeless beauty of the Tlaquepaque grounds. It would be hard to find more beautiful surroundings anywhere to create a shopping experience like no other.

#3 : I LOVED this video and it looked like a nice place to visit. I did see a lot of people still NOT WEARING masks. That part made me a little sad. I take that back, it made me VERY UPSET! This sickness is real and people should just wear the masks or stay home.

On a happy note. I realized I actually wish I was there with a book on my lap and a pen in my hand. I would LOVE to start writing my next series of books there, and I am smiling again.

#4 The view was great, but for me it’s a “No”.  I really don’t like walking in the dirt. Then again, I could walk some, and enjoy the sights. Nature is beautiful, vitamin D would be great as well, and who knows I might actually like it – if I had the chance to visit.

Best Small Towns in Arizona 2021

Living in Arizona Now

This is a virtual tour around the best Arizona small towns for 2021. These are our favorite small towns in Arizona but there are many small towns that could be on this list and that’s why I am asking if you guys would like a Part 2 or even a Part 3. This list of small towns is from Northern Arizona, Central Arizona and Southern Arizona. Some of these small town tours you can do in a day trip some may require an overnight stay if you really want to relax. Also a few of these towns you can see in one trip. For example the Jerome, Cottonwood and Sedona trip can be done in one day if you leave early enough.                    {}

#6 : I may not have  been able to add a picture, but if you click on the youtube page info then you will see some more nice places to visit.

On a side note: if I get close to a state and you think one of the cities would be nice to add to my traveling online idea….

Bye IV Now, LD*
