So now I'm going to inflict a bunch of pics of my happy places on you all. Please join in with fun and joyous images of choice!
First, so you know you're talking to, you can see me in, um, "professional and trustworthy looking" mode. Hmmm, sizes are a bit skewed. Oh well. (Admins, these are all pics I have posted elsewhere under this name. No privacy concerns on my end.)
Me in non work mode:
L and R are playing in Montana last summer. Center is me making a comedy routine out of dissecting a pig heart in a college biology class last year, trying to get my classmates to overcome their squeamishness and LEARN something....
I have been stuck in NJ for 24 years and counting, but my real home and heart are in Montana. Some photos from last summer (I spend my summers with my sister and brother in law, who are cattle ranchers. I run their household and tank up on good air, sunshine, mineral hot springs, radon mine therapy etc., while they are putting up hay. Theirs is a "big ag" operation, ranked in the top 5% of beef production operations according to the USDA, but it is a family business: my BIL, his three brothers, one son/nephew and my sister. I keep sis and BIL in cold drinks and good food, have a little deck garden, run errands etc. for two months. It almost makes the other ten months of NJ bearable. We'll be moving out there permanently at some point.
