Let's Get Started!

This post is just to get this thing started... when I get back from picking up Judy's antibiotics (yep, she has an infection from the bronchoscopy) and getting yard work done, I will get some posts going so we can use this as a central communication center.  (before we get WAY out of control!)  Be back in a bit!!!
