This is a beautiful photo of a giant American flag in Arizona. The photo is authentic, UN-touched and was taken on regular Kodak 35mm film. The person who took the picture couldn't believe the image created by the suns rays.
Nice of them to share it with the world!
Read what is says under the picture....

For those that prefer to think that God is not watching over us...go ahead and delete this.
For the rest of us...pass this on.

Well, I have learned not to throw out Nate's favorite cake again! He was PISSED that I threw all but 1 piece away. :( I told him to call you. haha! Anyway, I guess next time, I will just have to learn to control myself. I feel pretty bad right now.

Stupid men!!

Hey! How are you? I couldn’t believe when Mary Carol said she was talking with you. Congrats on the job, it will be great working with you again. So, lets see, it’s been 16 years. What have you been doing with yourself? Things her are good. We still live in the condo, Chip still works at VT Yankee, Kori is now 16 and drives. Here’s a picture of us this summer. Yes, I’m plump and no, I’m not heading out to pick rice in the fields! Kori is gorgeous as you can see, and a really good kid. We are lucky, we got a good one. She is very involved in field hockey. She plays year round in a program for girls that want to play in college. She was in Palm Springs all week for a national college recruiting tournament, we pick her up in Hartford tonight. She’s goalie and the best in VT, she’s only a junior. She’s been all over the place playing. We will all be going to Disney in Feb. for another tournament. We’ve met a lot of great people and Kori is well known in NE. We are very proud parents. When ever we go anywhere when people find out who we are they always rave about Kori and how good she is. She has a very big reputation. It’s very cool. She is very driven and works hard. She’s had knee surgery twice on her meniscus and needs another one. It’s hard because she is always playing, she has no down time and she plays lacrosse in the spring too. She may have to sacrifice lacrosse and take some time off in the spring. Even though she’s a junior she has many division one schools recruiting her already, as much as they can though contact has to be limited. At this point we all like UConn best, but we will see when it gets down to the nitty gritty fall of 09. Okay, enough bragging about Kori. I’ve been working for Presence since it’s beginning here on the East coast. Love this company. I’m very happy and enjoy being on the road. I don’t know if I’d be able to sit behind a desk again. I’ve got my routine and it’s great. I see John every now and then. It’s always fun to bump into him. He never changes.

How are your parents and brother? Fill me in, I can’t wait to catch up!

Take care Steve!

Hey girls...
Just had to tell you that Nate & I saw a great horned owl in our backyard last night! We were about to let the dogs out, and it flew from our yard over to the house behind ours. (the ones with the annoying little girl who loves Sydney- haha) It was SO cool to see. I'm totally like a little kid and get so excited about stuff like that. :) I don't think I've ever seen an owl in the wild before, so I was so happy.

Hope you're all having a good day, and are enjoying the pretty snow-globe weather outside! (even if it is chilly!)

Looking forward to Thursday night! :)


Merry Christmas From My Mother

Oy Holy Night.
She sent me this.
