We are taking a break from hosting. Hope to be back up soon. Between Covid and our own vulnerable health (cancer surgery this summer for Ed), I do not have the will to take on the added responsibility that the pandemic requires. Thank you for bearing with us for now. We hope to be back in action in by the summer. Waiting on the vaccine now. Stay safe and be well!

We are retired teachers: I taught composition courses at Defiance College (adjunct) and Ed taught Sociology at Northwest State Community College for 31 years. We enjoy family, friends, and sharing this space with travelers. Our faith in the goodness of humanity continues to be strengthened by so many kind and interesting guests who have stopped here.
