The site which launched on Tuesday is having problems now because the site owners are going in and changing the links.

Local News

We colored eggs today, #1 son and his family and I. It was fun. We had orange chicken, rice, roasted Brussels sprouts, salad, and apple pie for lunch. Janalisa stopped by as the kids were leaving and brought me lots of local news. I’m up on the national news, though I admit that I go […]

Palm Sunday

Sunday, March 20th, 2016

It’s Palm Sunday today, which means an exciting church service but no special home customs for us. It’s also the first day of spring,  and my walk yesterday was a pleasure.

Spring Forward

Monday, March 14th, 2016
