  RMS Titanic I have scheduled this post to appear on the Reynolds Organ Blog, “Wild Air,” at exactly 1:17 am on April 15, 2012.   Correcting for shipboard time vs. Eastern Daylight Time, this is posting on the 100th anniversary of the exact moment that the waters of the North Atlantic Ocean closed over […]

We refer to our seven (and a half!) year-old grandson, Jonathan, as our Vice President in charge of Lego projects.       Sunday, for Easter, we took him with us to North United Methodist Church in Indianapolis, about 70 miles away.   Bubby had never attended a church this large, and he was particularly […]
