Time to share your skies, the beauty over your world, the clouds, the colors! Sky Watch is hosted each week by  the Sky Watch team led of Yogi, Sandy and Sylvia. And this week as every week, we remember Klaus and know that he joins us in spirit! Join us and the many people from all over the world who share theirs with us each week!  http://skyley.bl
Getting this post ready for today was one of the blogging nightmares that I've been experiencing lately!! I hope none of you are having the same problems!!! It's almost enough to make me want to shut down my computer and go play in the park -- permanently!!!

One Quiet Moment

The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things.— Henry Ward Beecher

Happy Sunday!!

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see. - Henry David Thoreau

Always look for the beauty because it's always there -- somewhere!!  Hope all of you have a beautiful day!!

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.
