Well, my 30th high school reunion is approaching, and I find myself....curious. It's been a long time since 1979, disco dance, Pink Floyd, Star Wars - and, of course, the ubiquitous Farrah cut. At the core, I suppose I'm the same person I was then, but my attitude and ideals have shi… Read full post »
My father left behind a wealth of photos from his days as a US Air Force photographer during WWII. I've always loved going through them; they are a window into days long past otherwise unreachable to me. Some of the photos are of him,… Read full post »

I have boxes and boxes of photos, negatives, letters and documents, through which I started digging with the idea to post a few photos for the Memorial Day weekend. I soon realized that the overwhel… Read full post »

I'd like to ask everone to consider a question;
Which opinions matter to you, and from who?
Can you dismiss provocative or simply nasty comments directed at you without emotional turmoil? Do ALL opinions matter to you? This is a very important quest… Read full post »
