  • Hi Chester


    With over 160 pictures issued all over the world and 2500 assorted co-workers being born working living getting married and dying It seems that there should be enough to keep a daily column going.


    Sometimes however it does come down to a single entry although I haven't had to record a day when nothing happened.
    'touch wood' :lol:

    Gosh - it doesn't seem like two years has passed since she left us. As we get older, I guess that time has a tendency to sneak by us.

  • Hi Jay


    I agree. it gets even spookier when you consider that some of the actors who appeared with John Wayne in his early days had been born as Lee was surrendering at Appomatix and Custer was getting massacred at Little Big Horn.
    Time as a medium certainly takes some understanding.
