We rode bike along Lakeshore Drive, a very upscale neighborhood on the north side of Lake Pontchartrain, referred to as the “North Shore.” Due to the lake effect it can be 10 degrees cooler than New Orleans. We met “Tim the bug guy,” that’s what he called himself. Insect control has a 365-day window of… Continue reading Tim the Bug Guy
Yesterday I visited with Casey an English teacher camping here at http://www.ldaf.state.la.us/about/indian-creek-recreation-area/ I told Casey I should have paid greater attention in English class; Caralyn (a blogger) certainly did.

The quote “Don’t worry about the small stuff, and It’s all small stuff” comes to mind. My sister Les focused on the positive. I… Continue reading Cancer, what is it good for?
