July 2010: Nagymama attends PAWMA (Pacific Association of Women Martial Artists)

I had a great day today with the Pacific Association of Women Martial Artists.

I started the day at 6:30am participating in a Danzan Ryu Movement class. This was followed by Contemporary Hula. My next class was a Lower Body Roots where we tried to connect with our pelvic bones working on longitudinal alignment.

After lunch I did Power Drumming and had a lot of fun. Loud noises always bother me, but the drumming got me in my guts. A very different kind of noise.

I then tried Cane the Ultimate Weapon. I gave up on that one.

My last activity was Acupuncture Happy Hour.

The whole day felt as if a yoke had been lifted off my shoulders.


Nagypapa's MIT 50th reunion.

Spring 2009

Nagypapa "operates" Babbage�s Difference Engine No. 2 at the Computer History Museum (CHM) in Mountain View CA. on May 23, 2009. The visit was part of a Memorial Service for Dick Delp, a docent at the CHM, arranged by Nagymama and Nagypapa. A longtime friend of the family, Dick was our teacher, mentor and role model whose immense knowledge of computers had greatly benefited the maintenance of the Hellers� computers� good health.

Pura Vida!

A "Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition" and a personal letter "proud to honor your dedication to academic excellence and achievement in our schools" by Glen W. Thoman, Secretary of Education of the State of California, both dated April 26, 2009 were presented to Nagypapa at the Peninsula Temple Sholom religious school dedication of the new Holocaust Memorial Garden created by the seventh grade students.
