I created a one-minute video tour of the beautiful Leland Stanford Mansion State Historic Park in Sacramento. I used several photos taken by my father, Dave W. Murray, as well as some photos I took. I hope you enjoy it![…]
I rate Alice in Wonderland 5 out of 5. This was a fun and exciting movie, and it was excellent in IMAX 3D. If you are expecting the original Disney animated feature, there are a few very well done nods to it, but overall, this is a grown-up adventure fitting a grown-up Alice. There is lots of eye candy (and I mean that in a good way) for both adults and children, but many of the scenes are too intense, disturbing, or scary for younger viewers–especially without adult supervision.
After a long, chronic illness (though mostly without pain or appearing very sick), I had to put my 16.5 year old cat to sleep today. :’-( She was diagnosed with CRF (Chronic Renal Failure) about two years ago and was only given 6 months to live. Fortunately, we had more time than that together. Read about her, as well as a song and poem that helps me cope with the loss of my four-footed family member.
How many times have you heard the saying that “everything is possible”? Probably so many times that you have become jaded and believe it to be false. If so, then you have made it so, and you are doomed before you start, simply because you believe it. Obviously “everything is possible” is an oversimplification. In this post you will discover the six steps necessary to make “everything is possible” a reality in your life. Keep reading to “Dream it! Believe it! Plan it! Commit to it! Do it! Practice it! Enjoy it!”
Q: You’re packing your bag for a trip to a desert island–the kind with no electricity–what 5 books do you take with you?
A: It would kind of depend on how long I was expecting to be on this island. Since I have the luxury of planning ahead and packing for it in advance, I imagine it will be for a bit of an extended stay. In that case, something with lots of pages and a lot of information sounds like the best choice to me.
