I am thankful that I live on a beautiful planet, and have eyes that allow me to see the glory of it every day. I am thankful that after 30 years together, Karen and I still like and love each other. I am thankful that I have ears and can listen to and appreciate the music of life in its many myriad forms. I am thankful for friends and family. I am thankful that I have been blessed with a talent for cooking and a willing heart to share this talent with those less fortunate than I. I am thankful that in the springtime I can plant seeds and starts and harvest good, honest food as time goes on. I am thankful that I have a modest bit of computer knowledge and have been able to use this knowledge to assist so many people over the decades through Team.Net. I am thankful for the many varied experiences in my life, the times I have stared Death in the eye and Death has blinked first. Someday, though, my time will come.
