FYI- Go to www.pikepeakhyperbaric.com :You can search for more info on the study of mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Thereapy. It has incredible results so far. There is one local guy and his wife who offer it here locally in Colorado Springs. If you decide it is something you would like to investigate more for your grand-daughter and her CP tell Ric, the owner I sent you over there. They are amazing people!

I have put the pic of both my wife, Bobbie, and myself on this page. Partly because we have been married almost 53 years and do many thing together. However, Bobbie does not like the computer, so I do all the writing and editorializing about things in the Pikes Peak region. We have lived here 31 years, have raised 4 children, have 20 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. We have 5 granddaughters pregnant at this time, all of whom are due to deliver by the end of 2009. I retired as a Human Resource Dir. of a big company and spent the last 7 years as a Sub teacher in middle and high schools.

I wanted to be a writer/newspaper person out of college, but couldn't afford to work for $100 per week with a wife and three children. My first job was in HR and I stayed in the profession the rest of my work career. Now you know the high points of my 73 years in mortality.
