I grew up a Navy brat, meaning we lived in a lot of different places. England, Guam and all over the USA. My Dad finally retired to Eugene, Oregon in 1965.
Eugene has a lot to offer. A mild climate (just a little wet), centrally located in the heart of the Willamette valley. Only an hour away from the ocean, mountains and Portland. It is also home to the University of Oregon. Two of my 3 sons graduated from the U of O.
Back in 2004 I decided to try my hand at blogging. I wanted to focus on Oregon football and basketball. That leaves quite a bit of time without much happening to write about. I started doing a "What Is it?" post so there would always be a fresh article. Every so often there will be random posts on golf, the Yankees, family or tech news. The main focus though is always the Ducks. You can check it out here: http://winesfamily.blogspot.com/
