Christmas 2016

The 2016 Christmas Holiday included family from 4 states, girls on trampolines, shooter arcade games, caroling, a massive gift exchange, Hanukkah candles, a million calories and most importantly ... lots of love and laughter. It is impossible to do it justice here.
Despite the joy of being together, we missed Melissa, Roby, Anna and Camden. It was also our first Christmas without Mother. We missed her desperately.

Stay tuned for more photos - they are being developed.

International Desserts 2016

Earlier this month, we hosted the annual AFS International Desserts party. Having hosted this party since 1998, we have been able to meet hundreds of smart, ambitious and adventurous high school students from all over the world. As in the past, the students bring a treat that is commonly enjoyed in their country ....

and talk about one of their Holiday traditions.
These kids are great.
France, Ghana, Finland, Germany, Japan, Italy and China were represented. We like to think it helps bring the world closer together.

Medicare Health Insurance

With neither pomp nor circumstance, last week I received in the mail my MEDICARE HEALTH INSURANCE card.

While understated in appearance, it is the exact opposite in impact. Like wow, am I really old enough to have one of these? I thought these were for the elderly and the retired. This will need to soak in for a while. In the meantime, I need to get back to work.
