This has been a pretty fantastic weekend–I’m back in the CLE with my family, celebrating my birthday, which is today, and also the girlchild’s 8th grade graduation, also today. She is getting her school’s leadership award, for which we are all terribly proud, and there has been a great deal of merry-making all the way […]

Apologies for being absentĀ last week–too many balls in the air, and something had to give. You understand, I know. But it’s a brand new week, and maybe this one will be a bit less hectic.

Again, a topic that we don’t see get much airtime, so I figured it was worth some space on the site. It’ll be held March 18th from 2-3:30pm ET. […]

Well, folks–week 2 of my San Antonio adventure begins. And as much as I like this city (and the lodging on post, which is nicer than a lot of other places), I am ready to sleep in my own bed again. Alas, not till Friday. Happily I had some down time over the weekend, exploring […]

My dear friend Val sent me this article and I thought it was such a fantastic read, I figured it would be of interest to FHO’s readers, as well.
