Dragon Naturally Speaking (voice recognition software) arrived today. Dave worked on getting it installed. He is very pleased with it. Already it is faster than his 2 finger typing :-). He has found it an encouragement. He even thought he might write the occasional post on this blog.

A wonderful friend took the small children to the park this morning. I was able to get some work done on the computer and the children had a lovely outing.

  1. Hello Tarnya, I’m Russell Carle’s son Ryan. I don’t know how well you remember me, but I remember your family, especially David. Back when we lived in NZ, he and Dad loved to play strategy games that went on for hours! Anyway, I have actually donated bone marrow in the past, and came up as a potential match in a second procedure recently, although I wasn’t selected. I’m not sure if you guys are looking for a donor or if that is even a treatment option right now, but if you are looking, I would be honored to be screened as a potential.

    God bless,

    Both Dave and I remember you well. Thank you for your offer. If you are among the 11 million people on the bone marrow registry then you will be screened as a potential match for Dave.

  4. In the photo above Thomas’ shirt says ‘Dad’s looks Mum’s brains’.

    I say that Thomas will be well served if he has his mum’s brains, and as for the other, well, we do do live in a world corrupted by sin.
