There are no words

I opened this page some time ago, intending to write a tribute to the victims of 9/11. Many of us know people who lost loved ones or were lost themselves. What words could adequately capture the grief, the anger, the deepest sorrow imaginable? I don't know of any, so I'll be silent now, and remember.

Puppy Love

Introducing Kali, our new little Jack Russell bundle of love...

Here she is at only nine weeks old. We kept trying names for her, but nothing really seemed to 'fit' her. Finally, after two and a half weeks of watching her personality emerge, we have settled on the perfect name: Kali. (Kali is the Hindu Goddess of Destruction. For those of you with Jack Russells (and especially if you've gone through the puppy stage with them) you know why!) :)

Buckeye Country

Another reason I love being back in Ohio...

There's nothing like a football game in the 'shoe and NOTHING like watching the OSU marching band at halftime. Especially on the alumni day. A friend, Mark Baird, marched with the alumni band and he got to dot the I in the Script Ohio! For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about... During the halftime performances, the band spells out OHIO in script, and then one band member high-steps over to be the dot on the I. It's a great honor to be able to dot the I. And Mark got the honor Saturday. Congratulations, Mark!
