This is a picture of Jim (website host) and Veronica Morrison, with their daughter Lydia. This picture was taken in the winter of 2006 when visiting Lydia in London. Lydia was a senior at the University of Maryland College Park at that time, and was spending a semester abroad in the UK. As of 2016, we are living in St. Louis.
