God has blessed me with countless opportunities for personal growth and enjoyment of life. The purpose of this site is to share with you the many, many positive experiences which I have had over the years. I also have a few needs. I am also accepting donations through PayPal. Please see the bottom of the page.

Starting with July 2013 I will again start loading photographs to this site. However, they will not be full size. If you need a full size of a photo, please e-mail me. The archives will be in thumbnail only.

My prior web host stated that I was in violation of their policy. They claim that they have unlimited space now and when I hit 30 GB, that was a violation because I went over the limit. They also complained that I had photos back to 2005 on the site. In June 2013 I was going through photos from 2005 and enjoying them. I checked with another company and they said "If we say unlimited, that is exactly what we mean."  In late August 2014 we were looking at pictures taken in 1984.
