At least she used to be...not so sure anymore. Dwight Eisenhower correctly said, "History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid", and we have become both. We live in a world dominated by the aggressive use of force, and we seem to have lost sight of that historical truth.

March and November are the two ugliest months in Michigan...in November everything has died and there's usually no snow to beautify the landscape yet...and in March the snow has finally gone but nothing is growing yet. It's officially sping now, but in name only so far.
A painting that was in our room at the Desert Riviera:
Marilyn and James Dean in a pose that never happened...
