Georgia Wilsterman's Visit

We support Ron Paul for President 2012.  

I think the founding fathers would be very disappointed in what has become of the American government and its leaders; we now have a corrupt empire that largely ignores its own constitution and tramples on individuals' liberties.  The founding fathers would like Ron Paul, however.  Congressman Paul consistently votes no on issues that are unconstitutional. If elected Ron Paul will end our wars, close our hundreds of military bases across the globe and end our unsustainable, financially irresponsible empire.  Ron Paul has more support from US troops than all other presidential candidates combined!  Dr. Paul is critical of government corruption and believes in protecting whistleblowers.  As a congressman, Paul does not participate in the congressional pension, has never voted to raise congressional pay and as President he would draw a salary of just $39,336, which is the median salary of the American worker.  Paul believes the War on Drugs is not working, is a waste of money, and violates citizen's personal freedoms.  Congressman Paul has never voted for: raising taxes, an unbalanced budget, a federal restriction on gun ownership or an increase in the power of the executive branch.  Paul is the only presidential candidate proposing a viable balanced budget.  He voted against: the Patriot Act, the TARP bailouts, regulating the Internet and the Iraq war.  Search YouTube for " Ron Paul predicts " to see how Paul has predicted many of our current major problems and crises years or decades before they happened.  Please do not waste your vote on the status-quo; elect Ron Paul for US President in 2012.  - David & Joan Hall

 

Georgia Wilstermans Visit

(David & Joan)

 

   Yet another wonderful weekend visit with our relatives from down south.  This year we had the full crew: John, Jean, Kira, Luke and Marian.  They say they like to visit in February because they want some winter weather fun.  Well, they got it this time.  On Friday, we had seven inches of snow which gave the girls and David a snow day from school.    We went sled riding at Munroe Falls Park and built snowmen in the backyard.  Indoor activities included a Wii dance off and fierce competitions in Wii golf and ping pong.

 

Check out Luke - see that serious "competition face" he has, Joan didn't stand a chance.

"The Bus" weighs 135 pounds; we only pulled it up the hill once but it managed to haul eight people down the hill at the cost of only seven bruised tailbones.

Catching Up With Alaska (2009)

2-25-2011 ~ Blog #377

   This has been the longest I've gone in five years without making a blog post.  I haven't been totally slacking, however.  When we visited Alaska in 2009 I/we took over 14,000 photos.  We kept very busy hiking, touring and camping.  For awhile I kept up our blog in the evenings and then I just got overwhelmed.  In the past few weeks I've sorted through the last few thousand photos, picked out the best, edited, processed over 100 high dynamic ranges photos (mostly from bracketed sets) and created four new pages to accompany the first two pages from July of 2009 (Pg 1 & Pg 2).

All dressed up and no place to go

Instead of a "dress down day" at school earlier this month, we had a "dress UP day".  How do you dress up when you always wear a coat and tie to school? Well, my tuxedo still fits.
