Harvey is gone and left the Houston area devastated with homes under water and lives destroyed but we will return a better city.  The one thing that everyone shared with us from all over the country during the past couple of weeks, is how Houstonians were helping others in this time of need.  We need a lot of that throughout the country instead of the hatred that has been brewing for several years.  My 2 cents. ...

Thanks to all of you for your thoughts and prayers as the state of Texas has gone through the worst natural disaster in years.  This makes 2 years in a row that we have had torrential rains and subdivisions flooded but never anything like this.

We got home from teaching in Montana on Monday July 24, 2017 and quickly unpack and washed clothes as we were headed for Argentina early Wednesday morning.  After going to Argentina all these years, we have found the best way to get there is to go from Houston to Panama City, Panama then on to Cordoba, Argentina.  Total flight time is about 14 hours and you get into Cordoba at 1:30 am but go to lodge and sleep til...
