Hi and thank you for stopping by. I am taking a little break from the website and social media this week, for at least a few days. I will have more news and stories in the future. Enjoy your friends and family. Hug them tight and tell them you love them, even when it's uncomfortable.

A Digital Deal to Celebrate spring

Seems perfectly reasonable to celebrate the spring after sort of skipping it, and summer, and fall, like we did last year as this pandemic plunged right into winter mode.
