A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.

About Mrs. B:

      I have many, many interests and that is why I love Physical Geography. Since one learns about so many other sub-disciplines, within geography, one can never become bored.  To know why the world is the way it is; the inter-relatedness of all aspects, is extraordinarily exciting and leads one to even further exploration....both mentally and physically!

       As such, travel has been an integral part of my life: North America, with special emphasis west of the Rockies in both the U.S. and Canada; Central America, Northern, Western and Southern Europe.

       Since education is such an important part of all that I do and who I am, I taught our children at home, during grades 2 through 8.  The rewards of having done so have been enormous and incredibly satisfying!

       When not teaching or volunteering I really enjoy reading; one of my favorite topics being emerging infectious diseases.  I also enjoy listening to classical music, going to the opera, bicycling, camping, traveling, cooking and almost anything with our sons!

       Life is so exciting and there is so very much to learn and next to no time at all in which to do so!

The life that conquers is the life that moves with a steady
resolution and persistence toward a predetermined goal. Those who
succeed are those who have thoroughly learned the immense importance
of a plan in life, and the tragic brevity of time.
