    We have been on the boat since the end of April but I have yet to update the blog.  Why?  Well, it is software technology called social media:  Facebook.  I have been using FB a lot and for some reason it feels comfortable but I am becoming uncomfortable with the intrusion FB is making into my life and that of my families.  This is the only way we talk anymore!

    This has been the coldest, most rainy, longest Spring we have had since we bought the boat.  I have been doing a lot of reading – 4 books about Afghanistan, 1 on China, a few about sailing.  By far, the most time has been spent on websites.  I developed a new one – www.ahs60sgrads.org – for the 1960’s classes of AHS.  Check it out and let me know what you think.  Why are all my efforts pro bono?  I needs some money coming in!

    Now we are enmeshed in the graduation season.  Garret is graduating from New Castle and we are on our way there tomorrow early.  It should be a fun time and we spent some cash on a memento that should be of some value throughout his life.  I know I use mine almost every day for something.

    In our family, it used to be a watch but now that is passe’ since every cell phone has the exact time, calendar, alarm clock and every other conceivable tool under the sun.  So what to get a grad that he will use, remember and keep?  Guess – I will tell you in a few days.
