Christianity is all about relationship. Our relationship with God through Jesus Christ and our relationship with one another in Jesus Christ.

Tomorrow we celebrate 'CCC Mania Saturday' featuring non-stop latté drinking and chocolate covered cherry making!
Chocolate covered cherries are a deferred pleasure in that several weeks need to pass between the making and eating but the results are definitely worth it. However we will... read more

Wolf eels are not an eel at all. They are actually a fish.
And they can act like a friendly puppy if they grow accustomed to divers feeding them. The picture below shows us hand feeding Wendy a scallop. She didn't bite at it but opened her mouth and gently 'received' it.

Yesterday was so sunny and nice it seemed like Spring. Why not have spring rolls for dinner? Yeah!!! So we we prepped the ingredients: rice mixed with rice vinegar/sugar, carrot, cilantro, cucumber, shrimp, scallion greens and romaine lettuce.

I don't remember what I paid for this used wide angle Quantaray 24mm f/2.8 lens but it seems like it was almost free. Quantaray lenses are made by Sigma for sale in Ritz Camera stores and some 'serious' photographers consider them to be less than consumer grade.
While I can't speak for... read more

How did this get there? Maybe of more importance to the folks living below, will it stay there?
I don't have a sure answer to either of those questions but my guess on the second one judging from the crumbling nature of the supporting rock is a definite 'maybe not'. I think I would... read more

The Mukilteo Lighthouse (among others) has shown me the way home on more than one dark and stormy night. The distinct light signature and foghorn sound pattern of each lighthouse is listed right there on the chart.
Many view Lighthouses as quaint and outmoded in these days of fog... read more

Are you a leader or a follower? In reality most of us are both.
Sometimes we are not consciously aware that others are following us. If we gave some thought to that perhaps we would take more care as to where we are leading them... and where we are going ourselves.
On the flip side... read more

The above is an unfortunate example of accidental underexposure. It is a picture that we wanted but it was unusable straight out of the camera.
I like before and after pictures of a subject that has changed. This is a before and after where the picture itself is the 'subject that has... read more
