HOME Places Faces Historical Sites Ol' Papers Ol' Recipes Contact Us


Welcome to – an online magazine devoted to people we’ve met and places we've visited across this great state.

As a family of writers -- Laura Kestner, Coby Kestner and Jordan Kestner Atkins -- we've met some fascinating characters throughout the years, and visited some great spots — some well known, and others not so well known.

We have often lamented the fact that we couldn’t share these stories with a wider audience — and thanks to the Internet, that’s now possible.

Please click above and browse through the Places we've been and the Faces we've met.  We're also collecting pictures of many of the Historical Sites we've seen during our travels.

One of the more fun things on this site are the articles we’ve found in old newspapers from around the state – check out Ol' Papers. We’ve kept the articles just as we found them, weird sentence structure and all, and many of them prove “the more things change, the more they stay the same.”

In the Ol' Recipes section, we’ve got recipes from family and friends and welcome submissions from readers.  If you have a recipe you’d like to see posted on this site, just go to the Contact Us page and send it to us.  We'll make sure you are shown as submitting it.

Please enjoy your visit to our website — and e-mail us your comments.
