Good morning everyone. We are blessed with another beautiful day. I woke up this morning at 4:30 with YouTube blaring a program I didn’t expect. It was a TED talk with a gentleman talking about how we – mankind – are ruining our earth. I’ve believed this for some time, but this fellow was ac…

My kids and I love attending fairs. It’s something of a tradition in the summer. And yesterday was our day. I get up really early, shower, get a bite of breakfast, and jump into the car to meet both David and James (my sons and their families) at the State Fair. After all, it’s only a little…

Graduations. Ahh, such happy occasions. It started out a few weeks ago with my daughter-in-law getting her AA degree from Mission College. She’s been accepted into the L.V.N. Program at Mission, so she’s not done with school yet. She actually got this degree with ‘honors,’ meaning that she w…
