All very good sayings. Especially the one by Einstein. I find that to be very true. Lovely images to go with it as well. Have a great day Sylvia.

I love these Oregon Spring flowers Sylvia -- thank you so much for posting them. We are getting ready to head back there in a little less than 2 weeks, which is why I haven't been posting as much lately. I will be back to OW as soon as we get back if not sooner.

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.
