There is a place just down the road a piece that offers these little tidbits. The Corner Cafe in Riverside, MO is just about my favorite place to eat. If you've ever been to Lamberts in Ozark, MO...well, that is my absolute favorite.

What's yours?

Do you travel enough?

May 30, 2016 - 1:38 PM - by Dave McClung
Dave McClung's Avatar I found this article interesting. It says that one of the most frequent regrets of elderly people is that they didn't travel enough when they were younger --


Does this describe you?

Linda and I have traveled more than most, but I still find myself wishing that I had... [Read More]
