2014 in Review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 9,700 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Yellow

The Yellow Light of Remembrance. In 1839, my family left this small village in France to come to the United States. This is just one of the two churches in the village. The other is St Adolphe, which supported my family’s departure and helped them adjust to their new life in a new country. It’s good to know where you came from and where you are going!
