The Giant Killer Among Us

by Gail Armstrong, CER, CET


Give us some history please, Lee.

I was born in Concordia, Kansas in August 1960. I was the first "preemie" the doctor had ever delivered, but I made it! We moved to California when I was 4 years old. My uncle was a Marine, stationed at Camp Pendleton, and would write home about how great California was. The whole family moved to California. He moved back to Indiana! I grew up in Orange County. My dad was a pastor and my mom was a school district administrative assistant. I'm pretty sure I got my love for the keyboard from my mom.

Nature of Words


By Laurel Stoddard, CET

In spring weather characteristic to our part of the world, towering cumulonimbus and their ilk pile up above us in the late afternoon and pour down lightning and rain and, if we're unlucky, hail and tornadoes. In Texas it's not unusual to get a month's worth of rain in one night.
