I will be messing with the look and arrangement of this website for a few days — hopefully not breaking anything important. If something doesn’t look right, please DO contact me so I can check things out! If you really like a change and then come back to find it something you don’t like, please […]
I decided that I needed a page to inspire me, to let others know the sorts of people I admire. So the beginnings of the page are at My Hero Page today. I hope to add more images, some thoughts and quotes, etc. as I have time and energy. But for now, here are a […]
Sometimes, when a person dies, you think how sad and go on about your business… not today. Today a Very Brave Woman died, and I can’t help wishing I had known more about her. Here, in a letter, is what I wish I had said to her, what I wish I could have asked her.
Initially, I didn’t have time or energy yet to write a full report on the last two three weeks, but I revised this the next day to cover the high (and low) lights. Suffice it to say, busy had been the operative word non-stop until December 20. And the next day I spent trying to […]
I told you about this site last year also — you can make a virtual snowflake here, with a message, and send it on to people via email… Snowdays Snowflakes. It’s fun, it’s pretty — it’s relaxing. Grab a cup of warm cocoa (or cool lemonade if you’re down under) and enjoy.

The video quality is not great, but here are two pieces from this evening’s concert: the first is a piece the 6th grade band played, the second is the combined middle-school Jazz ensemble. You can probably understand how proud I am of these kids! I hope this works…Â a note of caution, this are very […]
A friend — acquaintance, really — has passed on.Â She was a retired school teacher, a skilled woman with many talents and a zest for life that seemed unbounded.Â And that was just the briefest surface impression… It’s tough when a new acquaintance leaves, and all the things you could have talked about, enjoyed, shared […]
He came out of surgery — pretty well, now that they found a couple of bleeders and stopped them. Here is the CNN article. And just in case you missed the earlier posts… Death and Destruction Update on Death and Destruction Another Update: Death and Destruction Update on Youssif
Over the weekend, we had snow, wind, rain, rain, rain, wind, rain. Did I mention the rain? I did not get outside with my camera today, but there were several roads near our home and on the way into town that were flooded — or covered by mud. Our region is hilly (to a person […]
