    My daughter and I got to skate together today. It was so much fun. She's in the competitive group. I am not, yet. So we don't get to skate together. But today her coaches had an open skate so that any skater could come and work on what ever skill they wanted to. Ok ok, note to self, take out mouth guard before picture, stand up straight.

    I'll be playing again in the Streetjelly Fiddle Fest again this year if you guys want to tune in. I'm still pretty new in comparison to other fiddlers but I have fun. I play mostly Celtic tunes with a bit of American Folk. I'm playing at 6:00 pm Alaska Standard time which is -9 GMT.

    They did last night! I didn't get home till a bit after 4. They don't come out every night and some nights when they do come out, it is too over cast to see them. A group of us get together occasionally and rent the Two River community center. We all bring snacks and pie to share. Two Rivers is a dog mushing community about 30 miles outside of Fairbanks with about 200 people. It's not really even a village. But it gives us a place to go inside to warm up with wide open skies and far enough away from the city lights to be able to see the auroras really well.

    Happy Holidays to our friends near & far!

    This is our FIFTH year of the internet controlled Christmas lights. That’s something to be merry about!

    In 2010, we connected our Christmas tree lights to
    the internet and encouraged visitors from around the world to turn
    them on and off.

    As it was quite annoying to have the lights blink ALL THE TIME inside
    the house (really it annoyed our dog), so the internet controlled lights moved outside in 2011. In both 2012 and 2013 we added more lights, which brought media coverage, and then a lot of visitors from every continent around the world.

    We moved into a new house in January of 2014 and welcomed our son in
    July. A busy year to say the least, but the lights were installed and
    operational a week before Christmas.

    This year there are MORE lights.....a total of 4096 different possible
    combinations. Plus an unlimited number of simultaneous users, too.

    Post this to facebook, twitter, forward this email, write it in your
    Christmas card, battle your Aunt Lisa in Pennsylvania by turning everything
    on and off- again and again.

    Enjoy the Christmas lights, and send us an email about what’s going on in your lives! We’d love to hear from you.

    with cheer!

    I'd be okay with it as long as it wasn't the TV or the bathroom light. Either of those would get annoying pretty quick. The garage door opener wouldn't work. Period.

    They're probably getting annoyed at me. I keep coming back and changing the lights, but always leave them on when done.

    Sad night tonight. Just got news about my friend Mark's passing today from a heart attack. He was also an ultra marathon runner so I just don't get it. Death makes no sense sometimes as I know too well. He was only 53, same as my husband when he died. That is entirely too young. Mark produced the videos for the Yukon Quest. Here is one of my favorite ones.

    Don't wait to do the things you want to do. Mark lived an adventurous life. He didn't wait...
