The kids are in bed, all laughing, singing and talking. Drie and I are sitting here taking stock of the day. I sure am grateful for all we have here. I hope we do a decent job of this little project we have undertaken. Life has quite a bit of guesswork involved in it.

On a different note, I don't know how many areas of the country have such a great resource, but the University of Utah Marriott Library has undertaken the project of putting their archive of Utah dailies and weeklies into a searchable digital image base. I got wind of it early last summer, looking into some of my wife's family's history in Fillmore, Utah. It's much more comprehensive now, though I'm sure much is to be done. Amazing site, invaluable to the history professional or just people looking up family history. Fun to just browse, too, especially if one has any experience or relatives in this area of the world.
