Volunteer Ranger

Today is a volunteer day for me at Jefferson Memorial Forest as a "Trail Ranger" and I will be helping to clear one of the trails so it will be safe for the public. The forest was hit hard by the ice storm and  had to be closed and it will be opened one trail at a time.
Well off to work.

Wellenss and Spiritual Practices

My denomination the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) has developed a new exciting web site for wellness and Spiritual Practices for the church's clergy but it is too good to keep it a secret.

It is called: The Well-Fed Spirit and you can see it at if you would like to explore that facet of your life. It is a new venture so is still being developed but I really like it and have discovered some wonderful ideas.

I invite you to check it out and let me know what you think. Even those of your who may not believe in God may find some useful personal growth ideas on this web site.

Our Storm Damage

The winter storm damage was hard to take but take it we must.
The rest of it lies on the ground and will become fire wood for the survival of the next big storm.

Our once beautiful maple tree is split down the middle.

I am slowly recovering from the effects of the ice storm brrrr.
A huge 75 year old silver/red maple in my beck yard split down the middle. Half fell into the back yard away from the house --- thank God. The other half is still standing but is now a threat to the house so a tree removal company has been hired to come and take it down. That requires a crane in my back  yard. It will cost $$$$$$$$$ but must be done.
My back yard looks like a battle zone as that was not the only tree loss back there just the largest.
I am on the tree company's list but there are lots of trees down in Lousiville- some that went into houses.

After this I am seriously considering a natural gas powered whole house generator that will come on when there  is a power failure. Three times inside of one year is too much.

Back On Line

Yea! I now have electric power and internet.
Thanks for all the good thoughts and messages - eight days without power, internet or tv is too much.
More to come but now I have lots to do.
