    Hi again everybody! I am not to be counted on! Here I go 6 years without blogging and then have two entries in just a couple of weeks. That said, just because I haven't blogged doesn't mean I haven't been active. My lighthouse scene is coming along, albeit slowly. I am still working at making a living even though I am well past 70, so you may be able to imagine that I get tired easily. While I'm relaxing I like to watch "How-To" videos on YouTube. There are several people doing this and ...

  3. Sooo...Anything new in the last six years?

    Hi Everyone!

    I guess I'd better do an update if this is going to make any sense at all. My last posts dealt with two things, my layout and my cable access TV show. I did 18 episodes of the show and then summer came, and my involvement with the Cape Cod Baseball League took center stage.

  4. Memorial in Corona times

    Good afternoon , even in Corona times our King pays honor to those buried at Margraten Cemetery. For those who don't know it ( I tell about it every year , it's my way of thanking ) 8301 American soldiers lay buried here and there are 2 walls with the names of another 1722 who's bodies were never found. The graves are maintained by the American Battle Monuments Commission , the grounds have been lent to the USA for eternity as a token of honor and gratitude from The Netherlands . The graves ...
