Greetings from SUNNY Arizona
This sure isn't Illinois! We get 320+ days of incessant sunshine here. And surprisingly some things grow here like mad. The flowering bush is a Mexican Bird of Paradise that I cut back to the gound in the fall, and look at it now.
Yeah it's hot - but I won't go back to snow and cold on a bet. You just stay inside for a different four months out of the year.
Ten miles down the Supai Trail - 2,500 feet down that is! - on a three day trek with 22 members of the PebbleCreek Hiking Club, I found this most beautiful waterfall. Watch for the whole series of photos to be posted soon at our WebShots site.
For those of you familiar with Chicago, just image starting at the Museum of Science & Industry, hiking uphill to the Hancock Center, then climbing up to the top!
Super Bowl XLII in Arizona
I worked on the Super Bowl XLII security team, and got extremely lucky on Game Day, being assigned to escort the NFL Network broadast talent - Marshall Faulk, Deion Sanders and Steve Mariucci (L to R) You can see me in the background of this frame from NFL Network's video "Perfection Denied" between Sanders and Mariucci - and also in "Super Bowl XLII Discussion"

Sue and I have been attending many Scottish Highland Games throughout the midwest for a couple of years now. I have built a separate web site for our midwest Region 5, which you visit at ccsna5.org
