A picture is worth a thousand words. We had the whole family except for Greg, to visit over the Fourth of July holiday in Park City, Utah:
Metric half century (50 km). First organized event of the year, used to publicize and raise funds for a home maintained by St. Mary’s Hospital for relatives of patients.
One of the organizers of the Rose Hill Rally is Ed Lipton, an attorney I remembered from my days practicing law, and the first Public Defender in Mesa County. I asked Ed about what bike he rode, and he strongly recommended the REI bikes. I subsequently bought one, and thanks Ed for the recommendation.
At the first rest stop, I was approached by one of the bike mechanics from Brown’s Cycles.
As it turned out, he has the same bike as I do – a Bianchi, same year, same color.
I spent the better part of the morning at the local LDS church poring over an old book on their computers. Although it’s been digitized, you can’t get it online directly, but only in their libraries, under the watchful supervision of church members. There were several of them there, and I fit in the age demographic perfectly; they must have been bored because they all loved sharing my discovery. Putting the pieces together is very much like finishing a jigsaw puzzle, and it gives me the same satisfaction that Georgia gets when her 1000 piece puzzle is finished. I’d like to share this.
My family is related to the Beebes, who migrated in the 1830’s from Vermont to Illinois, but the documents I found) certainly fleshed out the story.

If you’ve come here for our 2015 Christmas letter, you’ve found it. This is actually a blog which goes back several years, but you can look at and comment on anything you see here.
Merry Christmas to all our friends and family, and we hope you have a great 2016
