In fourteen hundred and ninety two Columbus sailed the ocean blue.

Fun, fun fun!  If you have Columbus Day off get some people together and get a good game of tag going.

I didn't do much yesterday - Tom left early morning on his motorcycle for a business trip in Colorado. I took the day off from cleaning and cooking - did laundry, some shopping with Melissa, and relaxed the rest of the day.

Have a safe and happy Columbus and Tag Day!

They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
