Not sure just where we are going to be headed yet.  But we are looking forward to not being up here next winter.  We look forward to a new adventure to begin in our near future.  Anyone out there want a visit?

Here is a video of my son Jon and the team he is working with and what they have been doing in China.

How I wish there was an easy way to eliminate all the confusion surrounding Torah's calendar and the keeping of the moedim.  Some have said that an extra month has been added so that now Purim and the up coming Passover is about a month later that what we have been anticipating.
So if any of you out there know anything for sure about the calendar would you please be willing to inform me?  I would really like to know for sure just how we can know for sure

oil portrait finished.

Here is an oil I did of the whole family.  I had 3 photos and none of them were just what I wanted.  So I combined the three of them and this is what I came up with.  The daughter who is 2nd from the right usually wears her hair up in a covering but it made her look like a boy so I painted her with long hair.  This is from Sept of 2011 when my parents were visiting.  I started painting it last Sept and finished near the beginning of the month.
