    Upcoming & Ongoing

  • Ghosts,  — history ghosts — often pop up in my collection of “I wonder why I kept that.” Yes, I am a pack rat, and thankfully my kids continue to tell me not to throw anything away, particularly when it comes to our history as a family. I suspect that is why file cabinets were invented.

  • A recent PBS program featured both the history and the life in present day China. I can’t remember when in my long life I forgot about wanting to go to China. My only connection with this incredible part of our world had been going to lunch in a Chinese restaurant in Santa Fe when I was just a kid. I liked both the food and the Chinese wait staff. And I could never understand why sweet brother Bill would only eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches when he could have had Chinese food there.
