Thanks for that song, Cheryl. I had forgotten it. I can't wait to go for a spring or fall hike up in the Snowy Range Mountains.

This song is taken from the New World Symphony. (Dvorak) It is an old slave hymn about dying and going home to Jesus. It was featured all through the Movie Snake Pit. It starred Olivia de Haviland.

That all changed when I worked in a mall. Our little gift wrap center was just off the second-story overlook down to the main floor. Suddenly, we could hear what sounded like a drum-and-bagpipe corps getting louder! We all left our little alcove and headed to the "balcony" to see the event parading in from the main entrance. It was amazing! I have to admit that the acoustics in the mall were good - good enough to make even my singing sound good! Anyway, ever since that day I get chills every time I hear bagpipe music. If you want a listen, here's a clip I found of a group from one of Cleveland's suburbs.

My first pics will be of the eastern part of Wyoming, flatlands and corn fields. I promise pictures of the Mountains when we get to visit.

I first heard it in the movie Local Hero with music by Mark Knopfler, much brighter and happier connotation of going home, not dying.

Enough bagpipes for the day or I'll never get to work on time. I was lucky enough to hear the Blackwatch from Scotland when I lived in Laramie, have been a huge fan since of Bagpipes and Tattoos. Give me a drumline and I am happy, add in the pipes and I am ecstatic.

I spent the morning with the insurance adjuster looking at my vehicle and preparing an estimate of the cost to repair the damage from Friday's accident. Now I have a dilemma, should I repair the three year old vehicle, or put the insurance money in the bank and continue to drive it with my dents and dings. The damage to the rear of the vehicle is purely cosmetic and fairly minor at first glance yet to fix it will cost approximately 20% of the value of the vehicle and once repaired the vehicle will be branded for life by Carfax. I'm thinking the best strategy is to bank the money and drive it until it is six years old then trade it in or sell it outright. I would appreciate your thoughts on how best to approach this. Thanks, B

If you don't fix it, you're driving around in a junky looking car for three years and when you go to trade it in or sell it, you'll get nothing for it as it's damaged.

If you fix it now, it will at least look good while you use it and the trade-in value will be higher. It may be "branded for life by Carfax" but the unfixed damage pretty clearly say "accident" without the need for a Carfax.
