Still Time For Volunteering


The above image is, Leo Carrillo Docent Training

Today's song is Been To Canaan by Carole King, released in 1972.

This past week I spent a morning at a Docent refresher tour for the Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park. The tour was led by my friend, Mick Calarco, Recreation Services Manager at City of Carlsbad, CA (shown facing in white above). I am one of the many Charter Docents who started volunteering there before the park opened on August 16, 2003.

Mick gave all the volunteers a strong message of appreciation and then inspired all of us with his insights and observations. He could spend a week covering material about Leo Carrillo and the ranch and still have more information in reserve.

The picture below is of plaque in memory of, Lucia Kelly Sippel, a very dedicated volunteer in the community whom passed away last year.

I have many other pictures from the park over the last five years and its popularity continues to grow. I'm sure Leo would be proud of the way its going.

Taking a break from my MS Project training, I wrote my own sitemap generator to work with the Content Management System (CMS) I use to manage this website. When I finished writing the code, it was fun to watch my program scan my entire website locally and upload the completed sitemap.xml file to my server all in less than 15 seconds. Not bad for over 1,600 web pages including my Digital Passages Podcasts content.

Here is the link to this site's sitemap.xml file: It appears best in a browser that can properly display xml content.
