Spring officially begins today (March 20), and that means we can finally put behind one of the coldest and snowiest winters we've had. There may be a few chances at snow coming up, since winter was long, but I want to concentrate on what's coming up: lots of sunshine and travel.
For St. Patrick's Day last Monday (March 17), I took the day off to head to Kansas City to celebrate with some friends. I'm not Irish at all, but my girlfriend is 50 percent Irish and she really, really loves St. Patty's Day.
This Thanksgiving, I had the chance to head to the Plaza in Kansas City with my friend Kevin Walker and his nephews for the annual KCP&L Plaza Lighting. It was actually my first time at the Plaza, and it was a lot of fun.
