December 24, 1928 - February 28, 2012
1st Anniversary

Sleep is eluding me tonight like most nights. I realized it is a year today that my Father has passed, it seems like just yesterday.  A lot of things happen in a year you wouldn't think so in such a short span of time.  One of the men I loved most was taken from me and brought to a better place of no suffering.  I love you and miss you Dad. -

Something New

     I started something new this week and I am hoping it takes off.  I have a web site up called  I am hoping to get some traveling done, and since I have some limitations with walking, I decided to make it a site to help those who need accessible travel find information to do just that.  Places to see that are handicapped accessible, transportation such as van rentals, buses, taxi cabs. How to travel on a plane. Find Hotels that have handicapped accessible rooms.  The Web site came out really nice, but isn't exactly what I wanted, but I am sure it could be tweaked. What I could use from anyone who may be reading this is ideas of what kind of things you may be interesting in seeing or getting information on.  Maybe if it is done right we could put some discounts in there.  Check out my new web site; I would love to hear from you let me know what you think?

I have an idea?

 Is anyone else tired of all the Democrat's and Republicans not getting anything done or is it just me?  The economy is a disaster and now the big thing is the sequester coming up on March 1, 2013.  They are too busy scaring people then doing anything.  I saw this on either Facebook or Yahoo can't remember the country spends 8 billion in oil subsidies and 40 million on the elderly to eat. I know which one I would cut. Oh but that's right the Supreme Court decided in the Citizens United case that corporations have free speech rights just as people, so I guess big oil shouldn't have to give up their subsidies, politicians think our big companies are worth more than our people.  So my idea is, actually I am sure I am not the only person who has thought of this, is that Congressman and Senators should have term limits, no more career politicians serve four years put in your civic duty and then move out of the way.

The Battle: A Knight's Courage

The Battle: A Knight's Courage

Here I sit upon my throne of gadgets and parts
it seems I am the machine but never shall my heart
These Cold and inhuman machines never control me
Though many lost to adversity strength shall stay me
Hope is my last defense in my body's civil war
This disease, this barricade will break like the shore
I will fight with sword held high with a knight's will to survive
With fortitude and unmarked resolve I'll stay alive

By: Nicolas Valois 1986-2010

       This was written by my son, he was in a wheelchair he had duchenne muscular dystrophy and passed away from complications on April 02, 2010.  He wrote that poem, he was a very strong and funny young man, smile that could light up a room. He did fight with his sword held high until it was time to lay it before our Lord's feet. He is truly loved.
