“Imagination has brought mankind through the dark ages to its present state of civilization. Imagination led Columbus to discover America. Imagination led Franklin to discover electricity.”  –  L. Frank Baum

A month or so ago, I went to a safety seminar given by a representative of the diocesan insurance company. I work for the diocese as a DRE for my church.  A DRE is “Director of Religious Education”.  I oversee the entire education program and in so doing am responsible for insuring the safety of the children that attend on Sunday.  I won’t go into all the boring topics, but one in particular struck me as being helpful not just for large buildings such as schools, churches and office buildings, but it could also benefit the homeowner.  I have made a PDF of the information in its’ entirety, because the gentleman who presented the information did not want it disseminated.  So as you read through it, keep in mind it was geared to an institution, yet many items in the document can be applied to a home.  To access the document click on the following words “Lightning Protection”.

I hope you enjoy the awesome pictures of this tremendous force of nature!

About Mme Jocelyne

Hi, I'm a transplanted northerner–(born and raised in New York to French immigrants–Oui je parle Francais)-living in Florida for 20 years. In the 70's I worked as a realtor in the Bronx – City Island to be exact. Then I started a family and didn't keep up my license. I aspired to a career in architecture, so I went to New York Institute of Technology for three years, moved to Florida and finished my degree at the University of Florida in Gainesville. After 10 years of working in my dream career I sustained an injury to my shoulder. This injury never healed because I was constantly on the computer doing cad design. I finally decided to make a career change – something where I could use my training as an architect. Needless to say, I was worried – where will the money come from? How will I be able to afford my career change? But, I put my faith in God and went for it. It’s the best move I ever made, other than my husband, children and dogs.
