Our Winter work season commenced today. It sounds crazy, but working outside in sub-freezing temperatures is fun to me.
Looking forward to the new work season and the many nice projects we have this year.

An amazing night for Cub fans last night. Walt Disney could not have scripted a more perfect finalisation game, to the elusive pennant. But it was not so much about baseball.
To long-time Cub fans, it was the finishing of a long homily. Now resting assured that curses no longer applied and the anxieties that have come with them for so long were exhausted.
To those who are no longer with us, but while they lived, listened to games on their porches, endured season after season, never seeing the culmination of a grand season, can now have closure.
Wrigley Field has been more Church than sport stadium, always praying. Perhaps now, this franchise can focus on baseball, and those of us who are around to enjoy it, can be grateful for those who could not.

Picture of my Grandfathers grave late last night after my Uncle delivered him a pennant of his own.

Attended a 200th Birthday Party last night. That's right, 200. It was for the highly influential and long-dead congressmen and statesmen, Elihu B. Washburne.
Abraham Lincoln, President Grant, General Grant and Elihu himself were there to sing Happy Birthday. It was quite the affair.
Here my wife and I as, General, and Mrs., John Corson Smith.

Just returned from the Sandhills region of Nebraska:
This place is truly amazing. 19,000 square miles of native prairie stabilizing sand dunes. Perhaps its greatest attribute is its sparseness of people and overall vastness. It's zero light pollution, friendly small towns and industrious cattlemen also add to my love of this place. I hope it never changes.

Pictures from last weekends Jay Farrar show in Madison, WI. Jay performed his highly acclaimed album from 1995, Trace, in its entirety. I wore out the cassette in the last 90's. It was amazing to hear in this format. Jay has always experienced with alternate forms of tuning. No exception here, as he had two steel guitars playing at once in different chords.

The last six months I have been working on a website to promote tourism in my town. We have finally launched it.
I provided the text and photography for it. It was designed by the talented Jinger Schroeder http://www.jingerschroeder.com/.
Check it out - then visit or move here.

Some images from my recent trip. Two days in Two Rivers, WI then boarded the S.S. Badger, the last coal-fired steam ship in the world. Four days in lovely Ludington MI exploring sand dunes and endless beaches. Returned on the S.S. Badger. A great trip!
