(click to enlarge)Neo-Gothic in design the carillon tower was dedicated in 1940. Much work is needed on the tower and the surrounding garden. It still plays every hour and half hour. Let's hope that the State of Michigan can get the money together to repair this beautiful structure. For more information go to:

Well, all my postings and my Christmas preparations were interrupted by a surprize visit from my son and grandson (Mikey, above). Enjoyed 3 days visiting. We did a nighttime tour of Detroit and ate in Greektown....lots of fun. Now, the house seems really empty and quiet. My other son, Tim, was here today to wrap his xmas presents so I have had plenty of company. Back to the real world of Christmas prep for me tomorrow.

I never realized all the stuff that I have sticking up that collects the snow
This is an old birdbath base that has a sundial on top.
Looks like a hat on this solar light
Empty bird feeder :-(
This is chimney stack from and old factory in Pittsburgh that was torn down. I bought it at an antique fair years ago. I love the patina on it.

You know that there are so many comments about the violence in the world today but it doesn't compare to those times when you could be hanged for stealing a loaf of bread.
Very interesting times.......Doomsday Book, would love to read that. Everything was recorded down to the number of chickens a person had. England has a wonderful grasp of their history..... that book was written in at the end of the 9th century.
