Holy Spirit Pin 18 Years Later

Family of 13 Sells Catholic Sacramentals

This is great human interest and the place to go if you need Catholic Sacramentals. Wendy and Walt have been running this spiritual ministry out of their home for 10 years now and call it The Cukierski Family Apostolate.

Their story is better told by Wendy herself on their site. Give it a look and browse the hundreds of items they sell and give away promoting their faith.

If you don’t do anything else look at the gospel billboard at the bottom of their About Us page.


Geocaching – if I Only Had Time

I saw a piece on Geocaching on the tube a while back and it really looked like good family fun. I registered on the web site and even have my GPS picked out if I could only break free.

For those that have never heard of it here is a brief explanation. I have used GPS since the technology came alive back in the early 90’s. I would put nets in the middle of a lake with no buoys or land marks and find them easily with GPS. It’s perfect treasure hunting technology.

A little about my commercial fishing days is found here. I miss the outdoors but not the hard work.


Age Is No Excuse

I don’t want to hear anyone complaining about being too old for online shopping. My Mother is 89 and she still banks and occasionally shops online. She was over 80 when she got her first PC.

If you are a site owner or designer you had better take the aging of America into consideration. Accessibility is already becoming very important and will only grow in importance as more of our population is aging

And to you Mom a salute. You hang in there even though that computer sometimes drives you nuts. Yes Mother you are mighty.
