In 2015, after careers in the newspaper business, Pam and I established North Palm Beach Life. The name comes from the community we call home, but our focus extends to South Florida and through our travels and podcasts, worldwide.
Part of our mission continues to be publicizing events and news from organizations and nonprofits that deserve your attention. At the same time, Pam shares her views and commentary in her podcast, Gigi in the 561, which just started its third year and is available on over 20 platforms, including iTunes, Amazon, Pandora, Spotify and Google.
Here you'll also discover the latest news from the cruise industry in our Cruise News blog, and reviews of over 60 cruises (and counting) we have taken, as well as travel by rail and car throughout the USA. North Palm Beach Life also proudly features travel contributors, as well as humor writer Susan Goldfein.
I also cover reviews and random topics in my personal blog, Gerry Pronounced Gary, and have reposted concert reviews from my days in the Seventies as a rock music writer in Rock and Roll Rewind. If you have an interest in digital history and online prior to the Internet, you might want to check out The Story of StarText.
One decision we made early on is to not accept advertising. We want our website to be a place with no strings or obligations attached. It's worked so far.
We welcome your comments and suggestions -- email us at email@example.com. You can also find us on Facebook and instagram, where Pam posts the latest goings-on. In the meantime, thanks for stopping by and please invite your friends. --Gerry and Pam Barker
Yes, I know it's spelled like "Jerry." No, I don't know why it's pronounced "Gary."
