Our World!!

Nature does nothing uselessly.
       - Aristotle

Fall has definitely arrived in the northwest!! Some of the colors are beginning to fade, others are as brilliant as they were a month ago!! Hope you all have a great week! Enjoy!!
Follow humbly wherever and to whatever abyss Nature leads, or you shall learn nothing.
       - Thomas Henry Huxley

Come forth into the light of things; Let nature be your Teacher.
       - William Wordsworth
Time for Our World again!! This is a wonderful way to find, see and enjoy the beauty, the fun, the good and even the not so good things about our world today and to share them!! Hope you will join us!!  

Thank you to all the men and women who have and do serve our country!! They have helped keep Our World beautiful for all of us!!

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.
