    I’ve had bunch of more serious posts happening recently, but we’ve also had a bunch of fun — from a granddaughter being born to trips and even watching a scan of an Egyptian mummy. Plenty of fodder for upcoming posts 🙂 Here’s the first of a bunch of fun — in no particular order…this one […]

    Covid Caught Me

    I think I might have had Omicron before, in April. I was quite ill, throwing up and suffering through one of the worst “colds” I’ve had in my life.

Sometimes it’s exquisite views as the sun gleams through the […]

    So Long to Snowboarding

    At least for this season. The last couple of months have been quite busy. When I wasn’t working or hanging out with visiting guests, I was grabbing time on the slopes. It’s been a crazy season, but a good one. The weather has been extremely mercurial. It seemed one day it would be well below […]

    2021 was, well 2021. Rough year. I’ll write more about that another time. Bottom line is that it left me pretty exhausted so Chris and I made conscious choices to slow down for at least a few months. The energy is starting to come back thanks to a concentration on a healthy diet, sleep and […]
