Movie: The Great Raid

Amazing WWII film about the rescue of POW's from the death camps in the Philippines. These POW's were the survivors of the Bataan death march that claimed thousands - and that was before they got to the camps. Read the book, Ghost Soldiers for an in depth look at the march, the camps, and the most successful rescue on US history.

Architecture Principle

Isaac drew this crazy picture of a house with stairs all over, lots of rooms, etc. I said, "That's a pretty cool house!" "A house should be a good place to play hide-and-seek," he said.

Now that's a good architectural principle!

March Weather Madness

This weather is crazy - 55 on Saturday, Sunny, heavy rain, snow, 17 degrees, more rain, lots more rain, sunny and 22,.... I hate early spring.

But spring is coming: maple trees are tapped, geese flying, redwing black birds are here, blue birds are here.
