    Default Hello!



    Hello Everyone,

    I just wanted to drop by and briefly introduce myself.

    I am a mom, teacher, and engineer. Except for my family, my biggest passion is photography. I have been interested in astronomy for a very long time, and I am hoping to add a new hobby/passion to my list.

    Wishing everyone a great day -
    Pam

    Refractors kick arse precisely because they don't hide behind excuses. That is, they have no obstructions to hide behind.
