Signs of Spring # 2 1/2....

Yes, tonight the clocks here will Spring Forward so if that isn't a sure Sign of Spring then I don't know what is.... The weather sure isn't one of them, or maybe it is? (it has been with rain all day)

I've spent many hours last night and this morning trying to figure out the new blog look. Here is the background photo for those of you that can only see a centimeter or so on either side...

Even more crazy stuff: G. and I saw Duran Duran live in concert only half an hour away from our home 2 summers ago and it was AWESOME!!!

That's us, pulling funny faces!
(and the famous orange bike of course)

Flooded waters...

With all the recent rainfall and snow melting in the mountains, some flooding occurred once again in our valley. Yesterday, whils...
