Our prayers are with those that are suffering and for all the brave men and woman that are risking their lives. God Bless America.


I once saw someone post this in a newsgroup, "Why would anyone want to live in Alabama?" Why wouldn't anyone not want to? Alabama has some of the most beautiful countryside I have ever seen. ;-)

I have put up a few photos that my husband and I have taken of different places in Alabama that we have visited. As you can see the views are beautiful and there are also many interesting places to visit here.
