This will be the first Father’s Day without Dad being at least a phone call near us. Dad was a special person and so, on this day, I […]
Another great day to remember. Harrison graduated from Kindergarten and got his last chemotherapy treatment 15 years ago today! Here’s the […]
1380.5 miles on the Orbea with no flats, well, until today. After 10 miles down the road, somewhere between Danville and Alamo, I ran through some small debris and could tell something had attached to the tire as metronomic …tap… …tap… …tap… was […]
For the last two days in a row I’ve been lucky enough to watch tine International Space Station pass overhead. I don’t tire of thinking about those brave explorers living out in space, far from others and far from help should things go wrong. They are just amazing, amazing people. And maybe a little crazy too? 😮 […]

I’ll have to give credit to my nephew for sending me this email. Thought it was too good for just a simple forward. Without further ado… […]
Okay, so this is just me throwing up an interesting juxtaposed image on a Time Magazine article. The article, “What Makes a School Great“, covers the new Waiting for “Superman” movie that is a documentary on the […]
