We're here.

The trip went well, so far nothing has been damaged, and the house is great. We were blessed beyond our broadest expectations by generous help from our ward in Oregon, and have already had a lot of help unloading here.

More to follow . . . it's just such a huge relief to have the biggest hurdle behind us.

Thanks so much, everyone!!!

On Choice

In essentials let there be unity;
in non-essentials, liberty;
in all things, charity.

The trouble with Insurance Agents

Stephen Leacock: "I detest life-insurance agents: they always argue that I shall some day die, which is not so."

If you've never thought you liked orchestral music, you've never listened to Jace Vek's work.

Let me know what you think . . .

We are not amused.

A Short Hello

Just stopping in to say the blog will either be quieter or busier than normal. I'm working my way up to my eyeballs in moving preparations, and if I know myself, my mind will either be too distracted by children and boxes and naptimes and meals and packing to remember to blog, or I'll have so much contemplative time as I fill boxes and endeavor in the aforementioned tasks that I'll stop by the iMac several times a day to toss off short posts just to get the ideas down somewhere.

So, enjoy the next few weeks, and let's see what happens in this more passionate of minds. :o)
