I advise everybody who is … [Read more...]

Peaceful Morning

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-GOOD-NEWS6

Good News When I was a teen, one of my favorite music artists was Anne Murray. One of her songs resonates with me right now, 'A Little Good News'.

She's Coming Back Several weeks back, I noticed my beloved La Marne rose, the one that touched my heart when we were looking at this house some eleven plus years back, had some damage from the winter's harsh ice storms.
