Another batch of pics, this time Scandanavia, but with some interesting family pictures included. Peter skiing, looking pretty good. Me, at 17, with acne, and doing something sneaky (look carefully). A clipping from a newspaper with a picture of Rudy, Lucy, Eve and Kenny. Leon with Rudy’s hand-me-down Lincoln.  Some pretty interesting stuff. (Another improvement […]

The second huge folder of pictures on Dad’s computer. Not so many pictures of people this time. But also a lot less work for me, because now I have scripts that generate the HTML. I’m going to try to do one batch a day. Dave Mt. Desert Island Mt. Desert Island Mt. Desert Island Sunrise […]

On September 29, 2000 they wrote: “Your employer may be big, it may be bureaucratic, it may seem as if your voice could never be heard beyond the confines of your own office. But if you ask Leon Winer, he’ll tell you: You can make a difference when it comes to your retirement plan. Winer […]
