When things seem to go well, time shoots from one day to the next until you’re wondering what to wear to work on Monday morning; then you’re faced with the first of the month and bills that were just paid a day or two ago, weren’t they? If we could only stop and smell the roses as they say...stop moving for a sec--listen to the plink, plink, plink of raindrops in a puddle; open your eyes and see the clouds part to the perfect arc of a rainbow; take a deep breath and smell the freshly mown grass drift sweetly through an open window; touch a loved one’s cheek--feel the innocence of a baby’s skin, the sensual flutter of your lover’s, or the wisdom in the lines of the aged; and never put off taking a bite of your favorite dessert. Life is simply too dang short to miss out on the good stuff.

Welcome to God's country! 

Most people think of Arizona as hot, desolate desert with nothing for miles but cacti and rattlesnakes. But Arizona is home to majestic mountains, tons of snow, the oldest continuous rodeo (1884) and lays claim to the largest stand of Ponderosa pines in the world. But we do have our share of desert heat, an assorted array of cacti, and a smorgasbord of undesirable “critters” that call Arizona’s wilderness their home.
