Milestone not gravestone

I turn 60 today.  As you can see, I have much monkeying around to do.

If you know me, then you know there is a lot of life left in the tank and I intend to fully use it all.  It just keeps getting better.

It is a day of celebration for me and I want to thank everyone for their warm wishes, cards, flowers, support and thoughts.  I have so many good friends.

Thank you so much!

Elwha River DamRemoval Begins


This Saturday is the grand re-opening of the beautiful Elwha River on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington.

This is the world’s biggest dam removal, and one of biggest and most significant river restoration efforts. We will see a river coming back to life, with great benefits for salmon runs, the tribe and community. The lessons we learn on the Elwha can inspire other river restoration efforts around the country.
