"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax,
Of cabbages and kings.
And why the sea is boiling hot.
And whether pigs have wings."
Lewis Carroll,
Through the Looking Glass

DEAR LORD...

So far today, God, I've done all right... I haven't gossiped, I haven't lost my temper, I haven't been grumpy, greedy, nasty, selfish or self-indulgent.

I'm very thankful for that. But in a few minutes, God, I'm going to get out of bed.....and from then on, I'm going to need a lot of help.

AMEN

Hello . . .
. . .and welcome to my corner of the world on the web.

If you want to know who I am, click on my picture on the left. When you have finished, close the page and you will return here.
There are a lot of pages to see here, too many to see at one time, so bookmark this page as a favourite and come back often. I even add new pages once in a while.

The pages are grouped into categories so you can choose the area in which you are most interested. The categories are:
The Serious Side - Poems and other writings that I hope will give you inspiration, comfort or inner peace.
Just for Fun - Fun things gleaned from emails and other sources designed to make you smile.
Puzzles - A few exercises for the mind.
It's About Time - As we approached the third millennium, I got curious about why the year was 1999 (the answer may not be quite what you thought). Other questions occurred to me such as, "Why are there 60 minutes in an hour?" and "Where did we get the names for the months and week days?" Here are the answers I found.
Calendar - A calendar for the current month including holidays and observances for each day of the month.

In nothing do men more nearly approach the gods than in doing good to their fellow men. - Cicero

If I can make just one person's day just a little bit better in any way, then I have justified my existence today.
