A Fog Blog

Today was a foggy day. At about 1030 AM or so, the spouse and I went for a walk break. It was still foggy and the air was tinged with whiteness, as it often is just before snow falls. Only we don’t get snow here by the rivers. Rarely, anyway. The last time I think... Continue Reading →

Seeking Silver Linings

Learning the Lessons

The last several months have been quite an experience in learning new things. Wearing masks, mastering Zoom calls, checking in to work remotely.
