God has blessed me with countless opportunities for personal growth and enjoyment of life. The purpose of this site is to share with you the many, many positive experiences which I have had over the years. I also have a few needs. I am also accepting donations through PayPal. Please see the bottom of the page.

Starting with July 2013 I will again start loading photographs to this site. However, they will not be full size. If you need a full size of a photo, please e-mail me. The archives will be in thumbnail only.

My prior web host stated that I was in violation of their policy. They claim that they have unlimited space now and when I hit 30 GB, that was a violation because I went over the limit of "unlimited space". They also complained that I had photos back to 2005 on the site. In June 2013 I was going through photos from 2005 and enjoying them. I checked with another company and they said "If we say unlimited, that is exactly what we mean."  In late August 2014 we were looking at and enjoying pictures taken in 1984.  In February 2015 at church we found a picture taken around 1943.

Christ is Risen!  Христос Воскресе!

My brothers and sisters do a fantastic job in presenting for you our annual Russian Festival.  We spend several weeks preparing for it and then we spend hours giving you a great time.  Come join us!

I have been overwhelmed by the number of messages of concern due to the riots in Baltimore.

Are you an Orthodox Christian and a veteran?

You can now sign my guest book.
