I once studied to be an oceanographer… but alas I didn’t wind up working in that field. That doesn’t mean that the ocean is less fascinating to me. I just work with it differently.

This post contains a couple of videos — one is from Youtube and the other is a Slideshare. I guess that’s a mixed message.
An afternoon at Holy Trinity
I had some time to play with the camera today over at Blessed Trinity Shrine Retreat (Ft. Mitchell, AL). The light was...
On to Philly and Longwood Gardens
After saying farewell to Marty, and Bruce and Gene (not pictured anywhere) and departing Emmitsburg we proceeded on to Philadelphia (Germantown). Why I took no pictures in Germantown, I have no idea. But, we ventured south to visit Longwood Gardens.
Vacation Photos – second stop for visiting

We Are Family
Family gathering at the Grange Hall in Saco ME... locals and well as those from Florida, France, Alabama, England and other parts (Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut and more).
Instant Pot Steel cut Oats
This method takes only a bit less time, but you don’t have to babysit it. Put it in the Instant Pot, set the timer, come back later when it’s all done. I make 3-4 servings at a time, then reheat in the microwave.
Christmas in Florida
Boys and their toys… Olaf on water skis on Christmas Day afternoon
