Wintry scene

Snow covers bicycles on a bridge in Amsterdam’s city center as most schools in the Netherlands closed their doors for two   weeks for the Christmas holiday. Heavy snowfall disrupted air travel across western Europe yesterday, forcing more than 800 flight cancellations and leading to major delays in Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland.


(This is a REALLY cool shot. . .brrr – don’t you love it?     I do – big time.  Just wanted to share.  Hope everyone is enjoying the frosty weather.    Carry on, no story here – – hey, why don’t you come up with your own story?   Good idea?     Write it any way you want – YOU are the creator!          Jan)

Utah landmark

The LDS Tabernacle in Provo, Utah, is ablaze as firefighters battle hot spots. The cause of the fire that began the night   before last is unknown. The fire collapsed the roof and damaged the walls, gables and spires of the 19th century landmark of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.


(This happened on the 18th of December (I think), and to me, it is so tragic. . .I didn’t really want to run it because it is very upsetting.  In retrospect, I’m sorry I didn’t as we could ALL have sent them good wishes and a prayer or two for their recovery.

This is a very “old” Landmark building with so much history.   I am reminded “what doesn’t destroy us, makes us stronger”  Let us hope this is so.          Jan)
