Sorry To See The Northridge Wesleyan Church Suffered Big Damage In The Memorial Day Tornado

Yesterday, I took these pictures of the Northridge Wesleyan Church. My mom and dad were active members for many years and stayed active and contributing members until they passed over twenty-five years ago. I was a newborn baby when I first attended there in 1948 and I attended there as a child and through my youth for many years as an adult as well. This church always had a loving and close church congregation family. It started as a county church and the original church building was greatly remodeled in about 1965. As a teenager I volunteered to help

My Viburnum Bush Is Spectacular This Year — Full of Blooms!

My viburnum bush keeps growing. It’s spectacular. It must be 15 feet tall and this year it is full of blooms. I bought it maybe ten years ago at Siebenthaler’s. I don’t remember the specific name of the plant.

This picture was taken three years ago.

Ten Years Ago — It Seems Like Yesterday

Always a lot of fun. Missing my friend and brother-in-law, Jimmy Dunaway

April 20, 2009 — Hard to believe that ten years have gone by since the passing of my friend and brother-in-law, Jimmy Dunaway. Jimmy was 71 and had been a minister in the United Methodist Church for about fifty years.

Mark Owens, Chairman of the Montgomery County Democratic Party and Clerk of Courts

Yesterday, I had a cordial and productive 80 minute meeting with Mark Owens, longtime Chairman of the Montgomery County Democratic Party.

“We Show Our Devotion To Democracy By What We Do In This Room — By What We Talk About In This Room, By How We Empower Ourselves In This Room”

The agenda for the March 28 Meeting for the MCDP Central Committee indicated a very short meeting — it amounted to twelve minutes of announcements and reports. The you-tube video of the meeting shows that after this agenda ended, I addressed the group starting at 12:42. My goal in speaking was to make a motion that the Central Committee form a subcommittee, of everyone in attendance who would want to join, to meet with the chairman and discuss making deliberation a big part of our Central Committee meetings. I start my remarks by telling about the paper that I
