We're Back

       I have been dormant for a while.

       We just came back from a few days in Arizona - where we went to see the S.F. Giants play the Diamondbacks.  The highlight of the two games we saw was Barry Bonds hitting his 699th home run - a towering shot that bounced off of the jumbotron in center field.  I think that they estimated it at about 450 feet!

       We also had the opportunity to visit with some Tener descendents - and learn of more 'family lore'.

       Now it is time to get back to work.  Try to figure out what to write about, and make another posting!

       One question:  we are thinking about a trip to Ireland - and would like to hear from others on things that one MUST SEE!  And, this will give me an opportunity to see if anyone is reading these postings!  :>)
