  • Camp Reveille - Sleep Away Camp for Mom by Jacquie Kubin

    How long has it been since you went to summer camp?  Bunk houses and mess halls.  Swimming in the lake and eating S’mores around the campfire, ghost stories, arts and crafts or just hanging talking with an old, or new best friend. Women from 25 to 75 can head back to camp, along with ABC’s Good Morning American host Joan Lunden, to relive all those magical childhood summer experiences and more when they head to Camp Reveille, located in Southern Maine, for a weekend at a unique "sleep over" camp experience designed with only women in mind.

  • A Taste of Adventure - Dining in Brooklyn, New York, by Reed Hellman

    New York...Brooklyn, New York has been one of America's vestibules. Immigrants from scores of nations entered our country's outer doors and settled right there, in New York City's southernmost borough. Those first generations clung to their native languages, traditions, and foods, formed into cloistered neighborhoods, and raised their children on a blend of old country and new. It was the second generation and their children who opened the vestibule's inner doors and entered America's interior.

  • Cinco de Mayo Corzo la Futura, by Jacquie Kubin, Editor, Donne Tempo Magazine

    What is Cinco de Mayo? Well, other than a good reason to find bars serving tequila based libations? Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence day, that is in September. This holiday commemorates May 5, 1862, the day when a small army Mexican soldiers defeated hoards of occupying French soldiers at The Battle of Puebla, Puebla, Mexico. Published June 6 2009

  • A trio of Father's Day gifts that don't fit in a tie box by Jacquie Kubin, editor, Donne Tempo Magazine

    Father’s Day looms as does the question of what do you get a man that needs nothing?  What can a daughter, or wife, find for that special man in their lives? Can you really pick up another trendy shirt, or, gasp, tie or tool? How about finding something for dad that is steeped in tradition, but that carries a trendy new twist making it very much about today. My suggestion for this year is forget about what he needs and think about what he wants – simply remember a few of his favorite things…for example good drink, exciting sports action or a day of relaxation…and he won’t be feeling so bad!* Published June 6 2009

  • Glorious San Jose by Lisa Ruth, editor, Donne Tempo Magazine

    Nestled in the Santa Clara Valley, surrounded by the soaring Santa Cruz Mountains, lays lush and lovely San Jose, California.  Overshadowed by its more famous northern cousin, San Francisco, San Jose is a worthy destination.  The bustling city boasts a huge variety of unique natural sites, cultural destinations, nightlife and a surprising calming beauty.  Published June 6 2009
