Last year robins built a nest in the ivy above our front porch and laid eggs. By the time we noticed it was too late for us to remove it (kind heart folks that we are.) Consequently we couldn't use our front door until the eggs hatched and flew away.
A short while later as I was... read more

Excuse me while I take a break.
Peruse through some of my past Show`n`Tell postings. There are 500 of them now. Some have overt spiritual applications while others take some thinking. They are worth looking through again.

A smile will not only brighten other people's day but it will start a feed back cycle that will brighten your day too. Try it!

I lived here while I was in the single digits age wise. Our apartment was above the garages in the alley off of 25th Street in Everett.
The Everett listing for Alcoholics Anonymous was our home phone number and when people needed help they called our home phone. Most often those calls... read more

One of my all time favorite movies is the Princess Bride. So many memorable lines to quote.
The exact quote has Inigo Montoya asking, 'Fezzic, are there rocks ahead?' To which Fezzic replies with characteristic rhyme, 'If there are we'll all be dead.'

While most Cicada species have some adults emerging from the ground each year the North American Magicicada are on either a 13 year or 17 year life cycle and the whole brood emerges at the same time!

It's more than a child's game... it is a fact of life: we all follow the leader whether we know it or not. The real issue is 'what leader are you following?'
Sin was causing many problems for the Corinthian Church but the divisions caused by false claims of following was at the head of... read more

But I'm already looking forward to summer and taking folks out estuary paddling. Maybe if we have an unseasonably warm Spring we can even do it sooner!
And we are looking for a few more recreational kayaks to add to the herd of loaners. I'm sure our little trailer could handle four... read more
