April 2023, including 10 days in Israel

Of the trips to 30 countries, 50 states, and 43 U.S. national parks I’ve taken, the trip we took in April with Bob Goff in Israel is likely my favorite. We started in Galilee, explored the Golan Heights, sailed the Sea of Galilee, walked in Capernaum, picnicked at Mount of […]

March 2023 – Key West and Nashville

In March, I saw some live music, a live William Shatner, volunteered to chaperone my 2 middle schoolers’ field trip to Nashville, and my wife and I went to Key West for a weekend work conference, and all were very enjoyable! Here are March 2023’s 31 seconds:

February 2023, and my friend Hal

February is always among my favorite months of the year, as I attend my annual Mardi Gras legal conference and, back in the day, the Dad 2.0 conference, along with an occasional ski trip and/or AAJ conference (last year I had 4 trips in February!). This year was similar–my bride […]
