Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year,

Buddy Pat Jeff

Our Christmas card – happy, creative days! Mom estimates I was about age-5.

I barely remember that my mouth was red because I had just been to the dentist where they used red dye to help spot cavities.

My dad’s real name was Philip, but many called him Buddy.

Moose Poop Pile Record!

The snow is almost gone, which is about two weeks late this year, so I walked through this part of our yard to see exactly how many moose poop piles were dropped by our visitors this winter, and counted 36 piles of moose poop in this area we see here — and 48 piles in the entire yard!

(music video) Kenny Loggins: Outside From The Redwoods – ‘Danny’s Song’

Years ago, I enjoyed this concert on DVD very much, and just now got it out to have another look.

Even though these are young Redwoods, this must be a great setting for a concert in which love is showcased — to actually be there — and be able to look straight up — can’t be fully captured in 2D!!!

(audio) Kenny Loggins: ‘Conviction of the Heart’ – Outside From the Redwoods

After Kenny sang this at the PAC in Anchorage, Alaska, I stood to show my appreciation. I was surprised when no one else joined me, since to me, this is such a great song — my favorite by  Kenny.

To me, this song is about attitude, when we stand up for what really is right.

Great lines:

How long must we wait to change
This world bound in chains that we live in
To know what it is to forgive,
And be forgiven?

Do you care enough
To talk with Conviction of the Heart?

(1 min video) AWESOME Northern Lights Corona Display – Looking Straight Up!!!

Corona is my favorite type of northern lights. Watch what happens when Sean points the camera straight up!!!

To me, viewing this live here in Alaska, and even through this excellent video, my heart lights up! Displays such as this say something magnificent about the glory of our Creator!

“…the invisible things of Him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity….” – Romans 1:20

Sean is based out of North Pole, Alaska, near Fairbanks.

South African zookeeper Kevin Richardson has developed an extremely special relationship with lions. The man is an animal behaviorist who has worked extensively with native animals of Africa. In fact, his relationship with lions is so spectacular that many have nicknamed Kevin “The Lion Whisperer.” (source)
