Hi Joey, I love your blog especially for the beautiful nature photos. I want to recommend a local poet’s work, and website, http://susanvgabriel.com/home.html, (and book) for the same reason. Susan Gabriel of Hamilton has a breathtaking book and website, worth a plug on your blog.I would also give a plug to local Manchester, celeb, Wendy Booker, a truly amazing woman who just released a new book, and she is a fascinating and inspirational speaker.

Our new Nephew Tommy Olson. He arrived here from South Korea On 10/9/12 the first anniversary of my son Paul’s death. It was a sad and happy day if that makes sense. We babysit at least once a week. He makes my day. We were worried that he’d have a hard time fitting in with a big Italian family. Tommy fit right in. He loves all his cousins, aunt’s and Uncles. He’s such a sweetheart! Hopefully his brother Johnathan will be here soon. Tommy’s such a special Kid!
