Writing my first post in quite awhile, from a different continent. My son was chosen by Microsoft to go to Sydney Australia and help with the opening of the new Microsoft store down under. He was scheduled to be down there for almost six weeks, so it seemed  an opportune time for me to take […]

We received quite a bit of snow tonight here in the Chicagoland area and apparently it is not done yet. It does not seem too bad as far as the number of inches of actual snow but the winds are really whipping and causing some pretty awesome drifts. We tried to get the dogs to […]

Today I turn 50. It is a bit difficult to put that down on paper, or in this case to type it into my Live Writer software. 40 came and went with little fanfare, but this one has reminded me that I am halfway dead (I plan on living to 100 then going out in […]
