Late this evening will mark 16 years since my mother was killed and I became an orphan. So much has happened since that time and my life has gone on and on. It is a time for me to reflect and to be grateful for everything I have had and have. Our parents help to make us what we are and I think of them both.

For those of you who know another side of me I would also like to wish a Happy Birthday to Alo Devi, who has helped me with much guidance in my life.

Some years ago I was unlucky enough to get a case of poison ivy and I was told at the time that it stays in your blood for several years. I don't know if this is true, but I do know that every year it flairs up at some point in the summer, though I must say it seems to be getting weaker, so I guess it is finally going out of my system.
