Snowdown A cold wind blows rain;
walkers, heads down, slowly climb
up to Eryri.

Stretton, Staffordshire, England
January 2003

Dad, Mom, Grant, Carolyn, and I climbed Snowdon (Eryri is the Welsh name), the highest peak in Wales, on New Years Day 2003. It was cold, cloudy, and windy all the way to the top. The sun finally broke through the clouds as we were heading back down.

Bush in 30 Seconds

The winners have been announced in the Bush in 30 Seconds content sponsored by The ads are great. The winning ad is suppose to air during tonight's State of the Union and the Superbowl. Well see about tonight, but CBS has reportedly refused to run the ad. Another example, like not airing the Reagan mini-series, of the "out-of-control liberal media." Good thing we don't have to worry about the homogenization of the media infringing on free speech; or, in this case, even not-so-free speech.

Welcome to Carolyn and I have set up this site to share news and photos which family and friends.

On the left side are links to various categories of photo albums: family, vacations, and woodworking. Each category contains an index of albums. Below the categories of photo albums are categories of journal entries: family, hobbies, poetry, and soapbox. Most of the journal entries will be topical except for the poetry category in which I will post, over time, various poems I have written in the last 20 years.

This entry is posted under the hobbies journal category since this web site has now become a hobby of mine.
