The Sherwood Glen Beavers

This is what the tree looked like two weeks ago. Since then, it has yielded to the gnawing of our giant Sherwood rodents, who have since moved on to another tree. You can visit a slide show of their work over time that is being updated every few days at

If you want to find out more about the lives of beavers as they prepare for winter, you can check out the David Attenborough video below.

Looking Back...

It's just over a year since we moved to NH. With Thanksgiving, Hannukkah, and Christmas (we celebrate them all) falling one after the other this year, it's natural to review the year in one's mind.

On Thanksgiving I realized that it in past years, it was a day to give thanks for for family, friends, and good fortune. However, this year was a bit different. As I reflected, I realized that it was really just another day, because since being in NH, I am aware on a daily basis of the things for which I am thankful.

Last night, I just riffled through some of the digital photos I took this year. I put them together in a little presentation. It just scratches the surface of the new friends and fond new memories that have been built.
