    OMG, I just finished Season Two of Young Royals! Go Willie!
    I'm not gonna spoil it, but good God, watch it! Basically, you've got a royal/commoner story here, but with two teenage boys and a very conservative Swedish Royal Court. Put a prince in an elete boarding school and introduce him to a young hot commonor and away we go! I loved it!

sunny and 58 degrees on top of the mountain
    I find myself back on top of the mountain again. The management company sent me up here to take an assessment of th resort and the staff. No pressure here. I made friends with these folks last fall, now I have to evaluate them. I have thirty days, so I'll spend the first half of the time trying to help the staff up their game prior to starting the evaluation. Wish me luck.

    Yeah, more behind the scenes work going on. Keeps me bizzy with hundreds and hundreds of recommendations on the site, not to mention two stories I'm still writing. In the mean time, I have started watching "Outlander" on Netflix. Cool series so far.

    We hea back home tomorrow. We're in no hurry, so we break the trip up with an overnight stay in Brunswick, Georgia. It will be sad to leave good friends and good weather behind, but it's time. It's almost getting too hot and the tourist business is picking up. Yep, time to go home.

sunny and 77 degrees in the Florida Keys
    This is one of those annual dates I wish didn't coming around at all. It's two years ago today that James took his life.
    He was being bullied at school. He decided to end his life at the age of fifteen. James had the whole world in front of him, yet the bullying was relentless and he chose to end his life. He was such a sweet kid. We spent time on the lake in kayaks and had a grand time. He loved swimming. He was in the ROTC at school. Outwardly, he was a bundle of joy.
    At the Memorial Service, the entire ROTC Squad stood at attention behind the podium. A box of Kleenex was visibly passed from student to student as the tears were freely flowing. It broke my heart. His dad and mom were devistated. I worked with his dad. As soon as I heard, I went straight to his house. What do you say to someone whose kid just killed himself?

sunny and 81 degrees in the Florida Keys
    Happy New Year!
    ... from the sunny and warm and comfortable and relaxing and having fun in the Florida Keys!
