¡Adiós Amigos!

!I am leaving on a jet plane! I'll be in México for just one week, but I will be so happy to get there.
While I am away, visit me at my Mazatlán blog.

Therapy Pets at the Library!

Wendy was one of 10 dogs that went to college Thursday night!  St. Thomas University on the St. Paul campus provided space and treats for therapy dogs (plus rabbits and cats in a different area of the library) during mid-term and final exams to give students a little down time during the exam period. Happy faces on humans and canines abound!

Truly a Winter Wonderland

My world today is truly a winter wonderland.  I awakened before daybreak and was rewarded with a white landscape of unbelievable beauty!

International Women's Day, March 8, 2019

Yesterday was so much fun! Polar Explorer Ann Bancroft (standing behind me) was the speaker at the annual Women's Day program at St. Thomas University in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Students, staff, and community (me!) volunteers representing the Luann Dummer Center for Women on campus are gathered above to celebrate the day. Ann's address that featured videos and photos of her explorations was well-received by a full audience. Not only an intrepid explorer, Ann Bancroft is an environmentalist, writer and teacher. "No Horizon is So Far" is the book of Liv Arnesen and Ann's extraordinary journey across Antarctica. Buy the book; it's an inspiring read!!
