Did this with my dear departed granny a couple of years before she died. That was a low-tech approach (in 2006), just copious note-taking rather than recording it on camera. Pages of notes about her childhood, the layout of her house, all her siblings (and half-siblings), the food she used to eat, friends and enemies Read more

I deeply sympathize with people who suffer from panic attacks, my grandmother has them a lot and this current crisis has only added to it.

When I’ve sat next to nervous fliers, I’ve shared that I fly a lot and that I also have a degree in Aerospace Engineering so I know that it’s a good thing that the wings are flexing. Then I’m asked where I work and I tell them that I’m a church minister now. They immediately want to know that story. And they now are Read more
