Overcoming Obstacles in Our Path
Amazing is a word that is really overused, almost to the point of making it meaningless. There are days and times where the action taken by another person is AMAZING in its truest form.
A few days ago Houston was pummeled by Hurricane Harvey. Up to 51" of rain fell on parts of East Texas. View complete blog
JUST ANOTHER FOGGY, OVERCAST DAY
Always Shoot to Under Promise and Over Deliver
2024 - That is the next time there will be a total eclipse (cue Bonnie Tyler), except maybe here in Duluth. On Monday, August 21, 2017, a total eclipse of the sun happened. View complete blog
