Hello all,

I just wanted to say hi to everyone. I found this site by accident via Sharon who posted one of her articles on Facebook. I like it here. :)

I hope you all are doing well and I wish you the very best,

Hi Benny! Hope you and the family are well.
Glad you found us! Still a growing concern and trying to make things grow in the desert.
Are you enjoying Colorado?

Hello all,

Please forgive my belated reply to all your wonderful messages. Smiling

Where have I been? I am nestled in the foothills of the Rockies where we are currently enjoying a mild, warm spring. It is meant to get to 86 today. Smiling We live in a condo so no garden as yet but that is expected to change this coming May. I am enjoying Colorado but detesting driving in the snow.

I work for a software company and that keeps me very busy. Drew is now nearly six and we go on adventures whenever we get the chance. We hunt down quartz aka adventure rocks on the trails that meander through the pines. It is fun but sad at the same time. There is an epidemic facing not just Colorado but all mountainous regions from here to Siberia which is the pine beetle. The vast expanse of pines that once were are now declining with brown everywhere. I hope someone brilliant figures out a solution soon.

Marie, I am sorry I did not make it to the swap. I went through a period where every vacation I booked was cancelled due to a software release, staff changeover or software outages. I will make it back one day again soon. Tell Julie I too say hi. :)

I will for sure keep posting and I will make every effort to ensure it is as often as possible. Smiling I have been accepted to write here so hope to have an article published on this site soon.

Glad to see so many familiar faces and I am so thankful for your kind and wonderful welcome.

Blessings to you all and I wish you nothing but the very best.

Take care,
Benny
