A Note To My Grandchildren It’s May 2, 2014 and at this point in my life, I don’t have any grandchildren. Just three wonderful teenage daughters who still are trying to figure out who and what they’re going to be in this world. Many days, even like today at my age of 48, I’m still […]

Yosemite‘s Merced River – How I got my iPhone 5s wet and it still works…. My iPhone 5s should NOT be working right now. It should have stopped working about 3:43 p.m. PST on 12.31.13. I’m writing this not as a guide about what to do, but to actually report a miracle.  There I was. […]

Yosemite 2009

Well, we made it to Yosemite for our 2009 annual trip.  Behind us are the worries of city life.  The pace is different.  The air is clean, cool and refreshing.  The sights are heavenly.  The sounds of wildlife, birds, squirrels, and Lord knows what else abound.  And one of the world's treasure troves of beauty […]

Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 6 am this morning to 9 PM PDT this evening… Today Thunderstorms and snow […]

Anyone going to be in the Yosemite area […]
