This is a newly redesigned web site. I have had a web presence since 1987. This has mostly been for photographs but I have also included some of my writing. I am currently the volunteer webmaster for two not-for-profit organizations. You can view their sites by clicking the Web Sites tab above.

Upcoming Trips

After New Orleans, Bill will be traveling to Wisconsin to visit Meg and then on to Kansas City to visit family there.  We have also booked a trip to Southern California for early June for Robert's high school graduation and some vacation in San Diego.  When we there last, we had a great time at the Wild Animal Safari Park.  This time we will enjoy the San Diego Zoo.   We are looking forward to a visit in May from our cousins, Andy and Lois Sciolaro.  We had a great time last year and will again to be sure.
