life is like the tide…it comes and goes on its own time

birthdays of note

sometimes it takes me a while to get around to writing about a subject i intended to address, largely either because i get sidetracked by my day job, suffer a brain freeze moment or the cable goes down…as it has been several times since this time last week! i hate what progress is doing to our once quite, semi-rural neighborhood!

a few birthdays, historic milestones and other fun stuff:
