Preparing for Cataract Surgery

I’m preparing for my cataract surgery this Friday, though mostly it looks like I’m still going through my usual daily schedule of activities. I have my documents in order, and rides arranged to get there and to come home. Another friend has agreed to come pick me up on Sunday morning if I can’t drive. […]


Transitioning into LEAP

I’m transitioning into LEAP 42.2. What that means is that I’m moving from my computer system of the last two years or so, into a new one that I’ve installed on the same hard drive. They are very similar, designed by the same people, but LEAP is much more advanced, so I have to do […]


Grateful Upon Thinking Back

Do you feel grateful upon thinking back over your life? You may be getting tired of my talk of gardening, so I’ll just mention that things are popping up green all over the garden, and I’m still sowing and planting flowers in this corner or that one.

World Remit Wants to Share

World Remit wants to share with you and me. I’ve mentioned them before, but now they have a special offer. If I tell you about World Remit – a good way to send money to someone in other parts of the world – and if you sign up (which is free) – using this referral […]


Making My Garden

I have been making my garden, or seeding it, this past holiday weekend. I got my prayer answered in that a teen came on Wednesday to go through the garden with a rototiller that he borrowed from his grandfather. Colton did a really good job and in record time. I was quite impressed with him. […]


Insects Spoiling My Happiness

Perhaps you’ve heard? Tent caterpillars are back! I’ve heard about them before, but I don’t think I’ve ever had to deal with them personally. This year I do! You’ll notice that this looks like two American Elms but they have just one root. (I was ready to have it taken down last fall, but it […]
