From Scratch -Prairie House

By Jodie Linton-Prickett | Travel & Entertainment

  Prairie House has been hosting a loyal clientele in the corridor for 30 years, and for good reason.  This local landmark has amazing food in a unique atmosphere.  There is a variety of items on the menu, so there is something for everyone. While sitting down with restaurateur, Jim Murray, I learned a lot about his ambition, drive, and insight for the restaurant industry.  Over 30 years ago, Murray had the wherewithal to create a location that fit the 380 corridor’s needs at the time, and the foresight to change with the unprecedented…Read More

Imperial Vienna, Austria

By Jodie Linton-Prickett | Travel & Entertainment

Imperial Vienna, Austria  Visiting with the Vienna Pass If you don’t mind my personification, Vienna is like an old college friend that is out of my league. Though I love spending time with her, she is fabulously wealthy and I just can’t keep up with her financially. In fact, Vienna, is imperial! Therefore, I don’t visit her as often as I would like and when I do I have to get creative on how to make my euros stretch. It can be difficult to stay on budget, when you encounter luxury at every turn. The city is remarkably pristine, filled with baroque architecture, majestic palaces, and musical genius. To top it all off, churches, palaces and museums are filled with…Read More


Personal Travel Shopper

By Ron and Tina Chapman | Travel & Entertainment

Saving you money, time and providing you with the best value It wasn’t too many years ago that in every strip mall and shopping center you could find your local travel agent. Rooms adorned with posters and friendly people sitting behind a computer waiting to book your flight, cruise or family vacation. Even a trip to Dillard’s could entice you to stop in and book a trip to Cancun. Today, everyone has the ability for self-service online bookings. So, where did the great travel agents go? Today travel agents are still around, mostly working from home, or for the major travel agencies. Travel agents have become more like your personal shopper, or a concierge. Your personal travel agent is the…Read More

Brasov, Romania- A Place of Legends

By Jodie Linton-Prickett | Travel & Entertainment

You might not have heard of Brasov, and if so, you are not alone. Snuggled tightly in the Carpathian Mountains, almost smack dab in the center of Romania, this town is located in Transylvania, a region of legends. The most popular legend of course is that of Vlad Tepes, also known as Dracula. There is also the horrifying tale of the Rasnov Citadel and the age old story of the Pied Piper who led the children from Hamelin, Germany to the city center of Brasov. If you watched the mini-series…Read More

Budapest -The Dame of the Danube

By Jodie Linton-Prickett | Travel & Entertainment

M. John Harrison might have said it best in his book The Course of the Heart, “Budapest is a prime site for dreams: the East’s exuberant vision of the West, the West’s uneasy hallucination of the East.” During my travels, I often hear great cities equated to other great cities, such as Paris for example. Travel writers and tourists seem compelled to compare less traveled locations to familiar places. Paris is one of the most used comparisons; the Paris of South America, Buenos Aries; or the Paris of the North, Riga;…Read More

Road Trip’n Through America’s Deep South-Destination Savannah, Georgia

By Jodie Linton-Prickett | Travel & Entertainment

Exploring America via a classic road trip is a rite of passage for most of us. It allows us to discover the immense spectacular landscape of our country while experiencing splendid cultures and learning about our history. For me, it all started in the very way back of our family’s station wagon, long before the mandatory seat belt laws kicked in. I eventually graduated to the coveted college road trips and now I’m taking my own family along for the ride. Road trips are for people that enjoy the journey as much as the destination, but all road trips should have an objective, so you know when you have arrived. This time, we took a two week drive to better…Read More
