"In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer."
- Albert Camus

Hi everyone,


Hopefully, you all are finished with school and can take some time off with your kids to relax and enjoy summer. So far "this summer", I took my Mom

in her wheelchair, to the new Chihuly Glass exhibit and Cafe under the Space Needle. He has done some amazing things with glass in a garden. It was hard to tell sometimes if it was glass or a tree or plant. Worth visiting. And from "our garden" we have had two weeks of lettuce for our salads. Amazing. Even with hardly any sun. So enjoy yourselves. 


Contracts and statements of work are out for next year, so we can be thankful about that too. Funding for one more year at least.


Take care,
