Our World!!

Welcome to Our World and please forgive the strange look to my blog, but I have had nothing but problems with Blogger for the past three days and this is as close to normal as I could get.  Todays photos were taken last night at a wonderful Concert in the Park with the Portland Symphony Orchestra. I wanted to share it with you today.

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.
