In my four and a half years of residency in the US and six years of marriage to Christie, I have learned that my wife makes excellent pancakes of many different varieties, born of many years' experience. Until my permanent arrival here, I had considered pancakes to be a dessert - enjoyed rarely, ...

There are some Continuing Education topics that are so absorbing the three hours passes just so quickly. Today's  three hour class fits in that category.

  Whenever a reality check is needed in my life, my alter-ego O'Larry the Clown tends to turn up, mostly for a short visit , although he has sometimes stayed quite a while. Among fiendish clown drivel, there can be episodes of balloon sculpture, and even an introduction to his puppet animal frie...

In the suburbs the light rail is a high speed train with its own corridor: in Salt Lake City, it becomes a tram competing wi...

Toowoomba Queensland is Australia's second largest inland city, 2,000 ft above sea level build at the top of the Toowoomba range. I spent my high school years there at a boarding school. The area is dry and cool for the most part, and even in the wet season, it takes a lot of rain to get the cree...

Christie's home. She is a a darn sight better than when I took her to the ER on Friday. After several days in the ICU, two transfusions and stomach surgery, before twenty fours in a regular ward she is back in her own bed. Perhaps the chaos of the last week is over.
