I know someone who is
working in Iraq - a goverment corps of engineers
employee in charge of safety who travels around the
country. They are building schools, bringing water to
villages that never had it -- and much more. He was home
for a vacation and we ran into each other at a store.

saw a very pretty site just before dawn today. My
walking friend, Jennifer C. pointed out these birds in a
tree at the park this morning. We weren't sure what kind
they were until the sun finally rose above the mountain
highlighting their golden color -- and then she
recognized them as cedar waxwings.

Ajax-Write.com is a free online site - no registration required - where someone can create or edit Word and other kinds of documents from their own hard drive.

have been watching my daughter and son-in-law play their
new game machine for weeks now. I have no time to play

their place more often. My daughter is playing Oblivion

does not count. What now? I ordered it from Amazon.com
and the list in the box is the only written thing I
have. Argh! Is this just another way to get out of
actually sending the money?

missed the last season of Enterprise on TV, so we are
finally catching up with the DVDs. Funny that the DVDs
are much better quality than could be had on TV -- and
no ads makes it perfect.

This is a fascinating site. When you visit, it
reads your ISP, automatically notes your location and

I found this in Dick Eastman's excellent genealogy newsletter. It's a chart showing how many ancestors you have for each generation back. For example, go back one generation and you have two ancestors (your parents). Go back another generation and you have your grandparents plus your parents or six ancestors all together. Just ten generations back and you have over a THOUSAND ancestors. Whew! Here's the chart from Dick's newsletter.
