Do you have news?


Monday night, February 18, 2019. 

Rain has been the story in Orange County for the last few weeks. We’re expecting more rain for Thursday and Friday. Meanwhile it’s chilly -- 38 F. degrees expected for tonight. Is that smudge pot weather? It’s close .. 

We have some Lancers going in for shoulder and knee replacements, and some with very serious illnesses, too. On the lighter side, grandchildren are the ticket! Lancers continue to travel the world and enjoy informal get-togethers. We have a lot to be grateful for. 

After all the rains, California wildflowers are having a banner year, 

Please send photos, any photos you'd like to send. is my address.

Southern California from Santa Barbara to San Diego is taking a beating from a major rainstorm, the first of the we’ll have. Although there have been flash flood warnings in several countries, the big problem is landslides that occur in areas burned out but the brushfires: Malibu, Santa Barbara and elsewhere. Pacific Coast Highway was close for a while Friday.

Hey Chris,
Short story is that I settled in the Great Pacific Northwest in '87. Moved here with my family from the Bay Area, got divorced and remarried. Both of my kids Tony and Jenny live nearby, wonderful self-sustaining adults. I'm getting close to retirement and simultaneously a startup founder of what could be an amazingly prosperous startup lighting company. Meanwhile we have a beautiful 10 ac (small) tree farm on an island near Seattle that we care for. Life is good! Hope all y'all are well.
