Congratulations! A shining star in a dark sky. Great to have some good news. Continued wishes for health of Mom and Son.

When DW came in the door she yelled, "Texas, Atlanta, Hawaii, or Florida. Which one are we moving to?"
Sounds like an opportunity. I hope you said Florida!

Thanks CJ. It looks like they are slowly checking every connection any of them had. Everything is locked down and mass transit shut off. Watching intently. While unlikely, I hope they can take at least one suspect alive in order to wash out the rest of the network.

I asked a few days ago and may have missed the answer, but....How are you feeling? Better?

No, I am about 30 miles north. Our company president is from around there. Police everywhere. I really hope we can find the guy and all his connections so we can get back to normal activity.

In 2001, our son had just started the 1st grade. The school he attended physically separated the grades by hall and chose not to discuss the events on the halls below the 4th, deferring to the parents for those young’ens. Our approach was to answer all questions but not to dwell. He really learned about it in detail as recent history in middle school. I cant’ prove that this approach was either good or bad, but I know he wasn’t really able to critically process what happened at the time, so I’m good with that decision.

Different folks have dealt with this in different ways.

You know your kids…
Trust your instincts.
We are listening and talking about it, but my kids are older than Paul's. We regularly head into town with the kids and are in the area frequently (and usually for the marathon). We feel that while it is important for the kids to know what evil exists that the more important things to point out is the positives that come from these types of situations. How many selfless people there are that risk their lives to help others, how as a community we get through it and that we will overcome..find the bad people..and continue to make a positive influence on the world.

Prayers for all in need.

Glad you guys are OK. Like the rest of the country, I am watching the news intently.

Shoulder is better so the exercises seem to be working. Talked to the Doctor and asked if I could go diving soon. He said sure if you want to take the chance to reinjure it. So I guess I am beached for a while.

One of my clients does therapy for children. When Newtown happened I asked a couple of people how should you talk to your kids about incidents like this. Their advice was:

Talk to your kids honestly in an age appropriate way.
Don't obsess about the news (don't have the TV on 24/7) and stay emotionally calm yourself.
Go about things as normally as you can.
Emphasize that this is an extremely rare thing to happen and that they are safe.

Good morning gentlemen.

Third snow day this month. Eight inches on the ground and it is still snowing.

Spring here as well. Usually pretty windy, but 50's and 60's with some sunny days and others rainy. A pretty standard spring in new England. Good luck with the snow. It sounds like you could move to Canada for a break as well.

Snow?? Seriously? That is rather sad news for today. I won't tell you what the forecast for today is here. Hope the snow goes away quickly!!
