Thanks, Mike. A number of upgrades are in the works. A graphic on the home page had been needed for years.

The Lost Year

Posted on December 30, 2020 at 8:00am 6 Comments

I have never understood the attraction to celebrating on New Year’s Eve.  Even in high school, I found it strange that my friends and I would gather to celebrate....  What exactly did we celebrate?

This year has been one like no other.  Our country has suffered tremendously.  Our hobby has also been affected.  Many major conventions have been…

Family dynamics have always made for interesting topics of conversation.  Like most families, mine is not absent from such topics.  One thing that I am very pleased about is my recent reconnection with my brother.  I have not seen him for many years.  The reasons are not important.  What is important is that we have seen each other more this summer than ever before.

My brother visited with his family for the first time in August.  Imagine my surprise when he told me that he is also an…
