"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

SHOW AND TELL: Cruz Family Reunion

This week, my show and tell is a video tribute to my father-in-law and that whole side of my family. About 1 week before my father-in-law went in for surgery, the entire family got together over at my in-laws house. Even the sister that lives down in Miami and her husband managed to make it up here for our get together. I got some wonderful pictures that day and, with a little combing through my files, I found many other wonderful pics taken over the last 2 1/2 years. The video is set to the song "Family Reunion" by The OJays. Its about 7 minutes long.


PS...Don't forget that I'll be holding a giveaway to celebrate my 200th post. That will happen sometime this week. Keep your eyes open!

We had a family reunion this summer and have tons of photos - a video montage is a great idea!

Such special memories that you put into that montage. While our memories may fade, those pictures will not.
