On Segway tour of Cincinnati Originally uploaded by hjoew In Eden Park, Memorial Grove. Great time!
Alice, the fine arts volunteer Originally uploaded by hjoew Alice was the No. 1 volunteer for arts events in Cincinnati. If you ever went to a Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra concert, Cincinnati Ballet or Cincinnati Opera performance or volunteered in any way with the local performing arts, you probably saw or met Alice.

Lt. Al Piening, whom I’ve only met once briefly, just retired from the Cincinnati Fire Department after 46 years. He spent his last years on the department at the firehouse at Clifton and Ludlow avenues in Clifton. I post this because it brought a tear to my girlfriend Melissa’s eye when she saw and heard […]

Ch 19 folks are planning a terrific 40th birthday celebration in […]
Taking the bus Originally uploaded by hjoew On my way to the Driehaus headquarters. I love the “negative” commute. Nearly my own private bus. And it is quick! Sent from my BlackBerry.
