Sorry this is late this year – apathy seems to have won out over enthusiasm, but here we are…

In early April we had quite a hailstorm that dropped the biggest hailstones we’d ever seen – ” – nearly ¾” (2cm) across!!!! (although they were more M&M shaped than marble shaped). They sure made a noise hitting the house roof and bouncing on the front porch. Some are saved in a bag in the freezer. Luckily no real damage was done.

The Green Caterpillar/Worm

We had the usual run of “babies” around the place again this spring and summer, including the Wrens who built a nest and raised some young after feeding them on a whole lot of bright green worms. Apart from the usual range of birds nesting, there were a number of Monarch butterflies hatched, young deer, fish in the pond, quite a few frogs and toads in and around the fish ponds too.

… it’s been an interesting year. Lisa is still at the same job she’s been doing since she started work in 1985, but after several changes of ownership is back with General Motors again. Roger continues taking care of the house and yard, as well as lots of computer related work for the Western Michigan Genealogical Society and the Clan Moffat Society. Roger also helps others with genealogy websites, and has customers as far away as Denmark and Israel. Continue reading »

Lisa and Roger in Bar Harbor

Hi Everyone

Winter has arrived here in Michigan – actually it arrived a few weeks ago with temperatures below freezing, snow, and a huge freeze in the American economy. Thankfully, despite all the doom and gloom in the American car industry, right now Lisa’s Delphi Corporation plant is still open and she still has a job there. Hopefully the knuckleheads at the car companies, the Government and the United Auto Workers union will figure something out to prevent this from all crashing down. Since General Motors is still Delphi’s largest customer, as well as providing support for Delphi’s former GM workers, it’s hard to imagine that if GM goes away, Delphi will last more than a few minutes longer.

Moffat Family in 2007

Hi Everyone

I’m afraid this is going to be a bit late this year, particularly for those not in the US. Looking back now it’s hard to remember where the year went.

Butterfly Girls

In April, Lisa’s brother’s family came for a visit (Jim, Kim and Kathy) to see the butterflies at Frederick Meijer Gardens. We took Zoe, the daughter of Lisa’s local cousins, with us. The two girls had lots of fun together being silly and racing around the outdoor exhibits, including being squashed by the giant horse. Continue reading »
