I submitted this to the Peninsula Daily News but I guess they decided not to publish, so I thought I’d share it here. I’m 49 years old. In my lifetime, the closest thing that I can relate to today’s COVID-19 pandemic, is 9-11. The world as we knew it had changed. The loss of life... Continue Reading →
It sure seems like we are living in the last days. A short time ago I had not heard of the coronavirus or COVID-19 as it is now called. We weren't thinking of global pandemics.

It's official. We are residents of the Pacific Northwest! We now call Port Angeles, Washington home. It's been a whirlwind. Pretty much ever since we decided to move to Port Angeles to be closer to my wife's parents, every free minute has been fixing things at home, taking things to the Deseret Industries (similar to...

I grew up in the 80's and Marty McFly was a household name. He was the main character played by Michael J. Fox in the hit movie Back to the Future. There is a scene where a picture of him of him and his siblings start fading because it looks like history has been changed, and his parents might not get together.
