Windfarm construction

I just photographed the construction of part of a huge windmill farm being erected along the southern shores of Lake Huron, in Ontario, Canada. The assignment was for LiUNA, the Laborer's International Union, which is stressing their contributions to green technology and environmental awareness.

Good people, wise project.

Rachel Intrator's Bat Mitzvah party- Salt Lake City, Utah

Ruth, Dean, and I attended festivities for Rachel Intrator, daughter of my cousin Peter and his wife Judith, on the occasion of her attaining the status of bat mitzvah. A happy time was had by all. It was great to strengthen family ties, visit, eat, dance, and schmooze.

Mazel Tov Rachel!
