Many of you don't know this but I belong to an organization called ConKerr Cancer. This is an organization dedicated to putting smiles on pediatric cancer patients through the simple act of sewing pillow cases. My new years resolution this year is to make this possible for as many patients as possible. I handle the Bay area from San Francisco up to Sacramento but I'm pacing myself and working with one hospital at a time so that I can make sure there is enough pillow cases to go around. Check out this link and if you can help please do. At the very least, please spread the word.

Till the Cows Come Home

"look ma, I caught dinner!"

Emily and Ben

Every few years these cows come onto the property to graze...and leave special "gifts".

Out At The Ranch

Last weekend we had the opportunity to go to our friend's Justin and Emily's family ranch. The ranch has been in Justin's family for ages and they invited us to go. It was a lot of fun. The kids got to practice their shooting and they even got to go fishing in one of the watering holes. Between the three of them they caught 6 Bass. Justin taught Anthony how to hunt quail (those things are fast...I guess I would be too if someone was shooting at me) Then the evening entertainment was having the kids watching me clean the fish and birds.
