On the 4th anniversary of my dad’s passing…

Well, it’s been 4 years today since my dad died. It doesn’t get any easier. I don’t think I’ve ever shared the eulogy I delivered at dad’s funeral… it has some great memories so I’ll share that here today. You’re still loved and missed each and every day, dad… ———- Dad was such a fan […]

Crazy Weekend

Like John Lennon once said, “Strange days indeed!! Most peculiar, momma!” Friday, I came home and we evacuated all contents from our TV room.

So long…

MS Walk

Not my idea of a fun weekend… I really don’t like working Saturdays.. it makes the weekend seem SO short. Anyhow.. we’re heading to the MS Walk here in about an hour or so. Should be a great time!! We’ve raised more money this year than any year so far! Pretty exciting! Thanks to everyone […]


Well, I’ve revamped the gallery AGAIN. I had upgraded to Gallery 2.0 Beta… but it was a little too slow and the interface was harder to navigate than the earlier 1.4 release I was on. SO, now I’ve re-gressed back to Gallery 1.5. It’s about the same as 1.4 with a few security enhancements. So, […]
