Welcome to my blog. Thanks for coming! One day I hope my little piece of internet real estate will be home to lots of family photos, pictures of my scrapbook and card art, with some random thoughts and memories posted on a somewhat regular basis. Mostly my world is very predictable, but occasionally some excitement will find me, so visit often. Who knows what useful (or useless) information you may find here.

Sky Lanterns

As promised in my last post, I'm adding some follow up pictures from our Sky Lantern adventure last weekend at Michael and Linda's farm.  My friends Dietke and Chris have added some great night-time photos of the event, and I wanted to share with you.  If you're unfamiliar with sky lanterns, click the link above to my previous post, which explains what they are, and how they work.  I can't wait to do this again!
Preparing to launch

Almost ready!

Into the night sky, our lanterns gracefully wafted on the breeze. 

I will defer to the words of the photographer himself...
I enjoy this photo a lot because it remains like the evening itself, a wonderful dreamlike moment.

A few more night photos:

The Food Tent

Adding another log to the fire

Good times around the campfire! 

For sure, this day and night will definitely be filed away in my bank of Favorite Memories.  Looking forward to making many more happy memories at Star Valley!!


  1. Thank you guys for celebrating with us. This year we are shooting for October or late September.

  2. Really you deserve a round of applause for this highly knowledgeable post in this segment of medical transcription. Thank you for such an informative post.

    1. Dear Medical Transcription Toronto: Thank you for your applause. However, I have not posted anything in your "segment of medical transcription". I have never heard of your company. I have no idea how you came to read my highly informative post. I do hope you removed the post, though, because I wouldn't want any of your readers to waste their applause on someone who simply enjoys posting about family memories, no matter how informative they be. I would, however, be interested in knowing "where" this blog post showed up on your site. I do happen to be a medical transcriptionist, and I have experience both in working for agencies, as well as working closely with agencies in my current capacity. I hope your clients are not aware of what a rude jerk you are. I'm sure your employees/slaves are already keenly aware. If you have not already done so, kindly remove my post from your site, or instruct me how to do so. (Since I didn't put it there to begin with...) I do not want anything about me associated with your company, or have anyone assume that I am part of your organization. Thank you.

    2. p.s. I also notice that your snarky reply originated from West Bengal, India. What's up with that? Are you a Toronto MTSO who is selling your soul to the Indian agencies? Or are you an Indian agency using a Canadian address in hopes of obtaining clients who decline sending their accounts overseas? Something's rotten in Denmark. ...er, India.
