Today is Mara's 30th birthday.

Here's a few snapshots from the last thirty years...

Contrary to popular belief, Mara was once a baby. In fact, she was a pretty happy baby!

She's was less than a year old when Mimi and Maman and Mara went on a picnic to the Governer's Mansion in the Falklands. I know they're at the Governer's Mansion because there are trees. Mara and I used to get along pretty well. In fact, we used to take baths together! Mara, I'm sorry I dropped you on your head. I felt so bad, I hid behind the couch. Also, you may not remember, but you liked splashing a lot.

Once, we went to visit Mimi and she was teaching Mara how to walk out in the driveway. Mara really liked it! It smelled really good at Mimi & Poppop's house, magnolias and figs and pine trees. Mara used to walk like this with Papa, except she did it on his toes. He and Mimi and Maman would get a sore back, because you had to bend over to hold her hands. I tried to do it, but I wasn't strong enough yet. You can see that we all still get along in this photo of me, Mara and Rachael! :)

Mara was also a young girl between being a little baby and thirty. I don't know how old she is, but I'd say nine on the left, eleven in the middle and twelve on the right.

The picture on the right is one of my all time favorite pictures of Mara.

The picture on the left is fantastic and another favorite. It looks like Rachael is barely able to contain the giggles and Mara is barely able to conceal her disapproval. On the right, Mara is talking to Kristen at my parent's house. She's pretty thin for thirty, eh?

Wow, I've never seen some of those baby pics before! Thanks, Nae!

The young girl pictures are 12, 23 and 14.

Then I'm 16 and 17.

Mara, I think you meant 13 rather than 23. A few other corrections for the record. The picnic is at Hill Cove where the men planted a 'forest' (about 100 trees in a hollow -- trees don't really grow there because of the constant wind) during WWI when there was no shipping and therefore less work to do. And Mara was about 2 months old there, maybe less.

Nae- I can't seem to get to your main page. I can click on specific categories of blogs- but your main page isn't loading for me. Perhaps I'm not patient enough. ANyone else having this problem?

The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it'll do even better in those areas, but for now it's a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod's strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

I found this text very up-to-date and informative as it offers wonderful tips to receive the absolute best Life insurance coverage rates and quotes.

Plus, there are normally a variety of assets that can assist you higher perceive your policy.

Thanks for all of the information. On a aspect notice, how do you deal with all of the spam you get in your weblog? My new weblog is getting destroyed by random spammers and I have been spending loads of time and power deleting comments its merely not funny. . I get so drained preventing spam that I feed I must cease operating a blog entirely.

Magnificent web site. A lot of useful info here. I’m sending it to several friends ans also sharing in delicious. And obviously, thanks for your sweat!

Hi there, I found your site via Google while searching for a related topic, your website came up, it looks great. I've bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.

I'll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

Wohh just what I was looking for, thanks for posting .

I always was concerned in this topic and stock still am, appreciate it for putting up.
