swiss no more

She did it!  10 countries, countless adventures, new friends, perspectives, and now after an unusually turbulent flight from Minneapolis... she's home!!!  Makes my eyes water thinking about who's she's become.

If ax²+b²-4ac=0

then x= -b±√b²-4ac ÷ 2a


4 drivers, 3 cars... looks like I'll be bikin' a bit more. 😉


Sorry about the spam messages the other day. Was working on adding a wildlife photo page to the site and didn't realize the demo content I added would trigger notification emails..

At any rate, just finished the page - it's basically a full screen version of my Instagram account... I'll be adding photos regularly, so if you'd like a notification when I post new stuff, send me an email and I'll add you to the mailing list.

Stepping out from behind the computer, and into the classroom. In-person learning begins ?


distant learning.

skate the lakes

Skating Hartley pond.

~full disclosure... sky was slate gray, totally cloudy,  so I decided to have a little photoshop fun :-)


once again,  it's hard to tell what Isabel's working on... science or art.

Distant, but timely learning..


Isabel turns 15 today.  We had a cinnamon roll, sausage, scrambled, buttery breakfast potato breakfast. She opened gifts, and we have a white napkin Italian dinner planned.  Lots to be happy about, but when you're 15, and COVID is snowing on your party (snowed 6" last night), it feels more like this...

Happy Birthday Isabel

now go wash your hands ;-)
