New JFK film released

This 40-second home movie of JFK’s last moments has now been donated to The Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas. Interesting how an event – now over 40 years in the past — looks like it could have happened yesterday.

I still remember where I was when I heard the news (schoolyard at recess)! I was 11 years old . . . the same age as my son right now!

More winter "fun"

I took this picture Tuesday morning. We had snow overnight and discovered (late) that Kevin's school was closed. We discovered it when we pulled into the school parking lot and it looked like a ghost town! He was elated, but I was annoyed that I drove all the way to school! Anyway, I took a "snow day" myself and snapped this photo out the back door. I changed it into a black-and-white shot and then tinted it using Picasa.

Baby it's cold outside!

Chicago is getting it's first real serious cold blast of the season this weekend. It's really been a fairly mild winter up until the past couple of weeks when we started getting some snow and now the cold. With all of the Chicago area immersed in Super Bowl talk, the weather went unnoticed until this weekend. The temperature is in single digits with sub-zero wind chill readings.

Hopefully the Bears will keep us warm Sunday afternoon and evening!
