This is a public place for our family to make announcements (project Overview). Relatives are able to stay up-to-date on family projects, exchange ideas by posting comments (read more below), and as needed, sign-in before accessing restricted content. Of course, we rely upon family teamwork. These are our Privacy Practices

We encourage family discussions and full participation. When posting content, please be safe. We are looking for content that is on-topic, and polite discussions that represent a variety of views. We also have blogs on private web sites. Whether you are a reader or blogger, we value exchanges and thoughtful comments that make their point quickly and politely. Below, we provide some tips on using the Blog, and a little background.
