I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

Moods of the Mountain #115

With summer solstice only two days away, this is about as far to the left-hand end of the mountain as the sun gets come […]

Moods of the Mountain #114

It is approaching solstice, and this, combined with daylight savings, means that dusk occurs just after 9pm. I love this time […]
