Welcome to my new blog, “Slideshows and Screensavers of our Lives”

I’ve lived a very full and rich life in my 43 years on this Earth and have learned to appreciate every experience I’ve had.

I’ve put together this blog to capture some of my memories so I can look back on them when I’m older and have a sort of slideshow or screensaver of all of my experiences.
