This Week I Don't Feel Like Doing Anything...Nothing At All

House in PGA Golf Glub @ Palm Beach Gardens, Florida
Being a self-proclaimed vacation aficionado isn't always easy. Between being a husband, being a father, being a full-time network engineer, making youtube videos, making podcasts, creating RealCrusiers.com, curating content for RealCruisers, and answering messages...I'm beat. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining about any of it. I love (most of) the things that I do. Luckily, my parents arranged for the whole family to get together and get some R&R in a luxury house in the PGA Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. So this week, I don't feel like doing anything...and I really don't have to. My family that was once very close, has drifted apart over the years and it's actually a rare occasion when all the siblings and my parents are all under one roof. It's refreshing to be able to spend time with everyone, cook together, eat together, and laugh together.

COMPLETELY RANDOM VIDEO BY THE RIVER

On 8-23-2014 my wife and I took our son to visit a friend of mine who was staying in a cabin on the Chattahoochee river. The cabin had a great view! We ate, fished a little, and just enjoyed the cool river on such a hot day.

Scuba Diving in the Galapagos Looks Amazing!

Joe Somebody Snorkeling in Grand TurkAs many of you know, I enjoy snorkeling.  On my last cruise I went snorkeling in Nassau, Half Moon Cay, and Grand Turk.  I was impressed with all the beautiful fish and the pure enjoyment of exploring the ocean.  Yesterday, I was discussing the trip with a guy from work.  I was telling him how cool it was to see the fish and that I really enjoyed getting to use my GoPro to record it all.  He said his sister had recently been on a trip to the Galapagos Islands and went scuba diving.  Apparently, part of the package included a video of the experience.  He just happened to have said video on his laptop.

Upcoming Changes to The Joe Somebody Show

What's Changing?


Don't worry, change is good!  I personally believe that The Joe Somebody Show has gotten off track at some point.  Actually, the show never really had any kind of track to be on in the first place.  Well, It's time to add some structure.  The new structure of the show will be more like a podcast or radio broadcast.  The plan is to make this into a fun interactive show where I (your average Joe Somebody) share interesting things and my thoughts and opinions with you.  It will mostly involve content related to cruises, technology, and current events.  The new format will hopefully follow a weekly schedule and hopefully involve co-hosts and/or guests (both live and via skype).  Ideally, I'll get people involved in the show.  I'd like to respond to emails, tweets, texts, and voicemails during the show.  If all goes as planned, I'd like to eventually use the YouTube live broadcast feature to stream the show and let people interact with me in real-time.  I WILL STILL BE MAKING MY ANUAL CRUISE VIDEOS/SERIES!

HOW TO MAKE: FRIED PLANTAINS (TOSTONES)

2-9-2014 how-to video showing how took cook a plantain.  I randomly bought a plantain, just to see what it was.  I found out that you aren't supposed to eat a plantain raw like a banana.  I learned a Puerto Rican method for preparing plantains by frying them, smashing them, then frying them again.  This dish is called "Tostones".  I discuss the difference between a plantain and banana, show you how to peel it, and how to cook it.

Cedar Creek Cabins, Speckled Trout - Cleveland, GA (review)

As a vacation aficionado, I didn't book this cabin hoping for the most luxurious weekend I've ever had.  What I was mainly looking for was something cozy, comfortable, and relaxing.  The Speckled Trout cabin in Cleveland/Helen meets those needs perfectly.  The cabin is nestled comfortably in the woods just off of the beaten path.
