Did you watch the opening ceremonies in PyeongChang, South Korea? My wife and I thought they were quite stunning. I find it difficult to compare them to past openings. Each one is so different, and always has such grandiose displays. This year I was very impressed with the use of drones, to form immense figures, […]Read more "21st Post February 11, 2018"

While down here in Orlando my wife, Dar, […]Read more "17th Post November 2, 2017"
Hello from not-so-sunny Orlando. It’s been hot, humid, partly sunny and partly rainy down here since we arrived on Friday. Feels like Florida to me. No worries, I for one, don’t mind living in a sauna. It loosens up these old bones to a perfect suppleness. We took our time driving down this time, with […]Read more "16th Post October 25, 2017"
Hi everyone, and happy Thursday evening. It looks like the beautiful fall weather we’ve been enjoying has slapped us back to reality. I don’t know about you folks, but here in cheese head country it’s been cool and wet. I watched the Cubs battle the Nat’s on TV yesterday, and the fans looked to be […]Read more "15th Post October 12, 2017"
