Who’s been doing what and why

Who’s been doing what and why

 This organizing and purging has taken a lot of time.  It’s telling that a frequent comment I’ve been hearing is “where’ve you been?” or “what you been doing?”  Don’t give much of an answer because “I’ve been dusting cobwebs off of old clothes”, isn’t much of a conversation starter. Been sorting through family pictures.  Found [...]

Last weekend was all about vast spans. This week seems to be about the small backyard miracles.

2013 International Women’s Day

Years ago Madison Principal  and Latino Heritage board member, Sandra Macis, established the Cesar Chavez Art and Essay Contest.  It seemed fitting that we would modify the contest to better reflect the work done by Cesar and Dolores by renaming the contest and adding material that was pertinent to her life.

There Goes February

I had planned to finish cleaning and painting the house in February.  Need to get back to hard core research.  Wanted to write about my dear God Daughter and Arturo Bandini.
