One Quiet Moment

Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.

A Nightmare in Oregon

Sometimes I guess we all wonder – when does the violence, horror and death end???

We just had a mass killing in a college town not far from Portland – Medford, Oregon. Ten students killed and the killer was shot as well.

Today I only want to ask all of you to hold good thoughts for the parents who are suffering such a great loss.

Thank you.

Sky Watch!!

Welcome to this week’s Sky Watch and a great opportunity to see the beautiful skies from all over the world!!  Our skies in Portland and Seattle are always glorious, but even more so it seems in the Fall. Hope you enjoy and wishing you a beautiful weekend!!

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.
