I'm sitting down early in the new year winding down a head cold that hit me over Christmas; it's cranked up into flu and I'm doing my best to test out some of the newest over-the-counter drugs on the market. Go NyQuil!

But it sure didn't dampen a warm family holiday this year. The kids brought their Grandma out for a week so it was a really special time; this was her first Christmas with them in 7 years since we left Florida. Sadly, her 98-year-old Mother passed away after a short illness just before the holidays started. So this trip came as a welcome break for her after a couple of very exhausting weeks. Grandma got in on Tuesday night before Christmas and she headed back on the Monday after. She managed to leave just ahead of the snow in Louisville and got home to snow piled up in her driveway! And we're still waiting here for some serious white stuff to show up...

With my usual bit of down time at the beginning of the year, I've been exchanging e-mails and cards with many of you already. But this website still always gives me a place to get everyone updated on what's been going on with us out here.

Once again -- a couple more questions from some of my favorite Books of Questions (I never get tired of picking these books up and pondering a question or two):

Would You...

    “Prefer to compose an extraordinary piece of music, write a great novel, direct an amazing film, or design a beautiful building?”

    "Say culture has received a greater contribution from the written word or from the visual image?”

Questions to Challenge Your Beliefs

    “Can you think of times you felt in love with someone and later realized you weren't? If so, what led you to see things more clearly and what did you decide had actually been going on?”

    “What is the difference between being in love and being infatuated? Do you believe in "love at first sight"? Have you ever fallen in love largely because you so craved the intoxicating feelings of being in love? Do such feelings now seem more important or less important than they did when you were younger?”
