Speedy Internet...

...which I don't have here.  It is beyond frustrating at this home....the owner and wife obviously do not use the internet much; they would never put up with this snail's pace.....

So, it makes me appreciate what we have at home in St George.

Oh, yes, I am grateful for fast internet.

Ability to Travel

(Holy smokes, I missed a few days!  That is not like me, dang nab it!)

We are enjoying our stay in the Rogue River Valley of Oregon; it's lush, green, peaceful, lovely.

It's a veritable haven for growers of fruits.

I love the green, greener, greenest.

Church All Over the World

We have been to church in many places.

And, no matter where we go, it's the same.

Same music, same feel in the chapel, same order of meetings, same, same, same.

And, what that means is I always feel comfortable.

I like that.

And, I am grateful.

2% of people feed 100% of the world.


It's such hard work, long hours,little play, mother nature rarely cooperates.

I appreciate farmers,
