Miller Family Carpe Diem Blog

This is the home page for Dr. Mark Miller and his family. We hope you enjoy seeing our family pictures  and descriptions of our adventurous  trips. We just moved up to Blowing Rock, North Carolina full-time this year. I have retired from private practice, but busy with Dermasensa (a start-up cosmeceutical company in China), Coolsculpting lectures, missions & family.  We were  in Fayetteville, NC for 25+ years from 1988, although I was born and raised there. We love to travel and go on medical mission trips all over the world. Mark has been to AFRICA (Kenya, Zambia x 2, Zimbabwee, Lesotho, South Africa, Egypt), ASIA (Philippines & China) CENTRAL/SOUTH AMERICA (Honduras, Peru x 3, Belieze, Ecuador, Costa Rica x 2) and MIDDLE EAST (Iraq’03,  also spending some time in Iran, Israel, Jordan & Syria in the 1970′s). Carpe diem! mark, beth, will & jo, victoria & colin, shelby

Society of the Cincinnati, Spring Mtg, Pinehurst, NC

The Society of the Cincinnati is the nation’s oldest patriotic organization and it’s first hereditary organization founded in 1783 by officers of the Continental Army and their French counterparts who served together in the American Revolution. Members of the Society are qualified male descendants of these veteran officers, and are a vibrant community of fellowship and high purpose, dedicated to preserving the memory of the heroes who secured the independence of the United States, and their patriotic sacrifices that made American liberty a reality. DSC06304

Machu Picchu, Peru, with Huayna Picchu in background and then from atop after a huff & puff climb. “Life is not measured by the breaths you take, but by those that take your breath away.” That quote sums up Machu Picchu, a magical, mystical, inspirational and breathtaking place!
