Our World!!

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.
      - Confucius
Today I'm looking back over the summer and a beautiful summer it has been for me and for my family! Hope you enjoy these -- I know most of you have seen them before, but perhaps a second look can still be enjoyed. Wishing you a beautiful new week!! Enjoy!!

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
