About Us

What's in a name?

I live on Broadway street in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA. The "Broadway Hill", as it is known, is a 400 foot glacial moraine. Near the top of the hill is Cedar Bend road and Cedar Bend park. The park overlooks the city, and the road lends a feeling of being in the woods. It feels very peaceful there, and all of the wildlife, from the deer to the birds, feel safe and relaxed. So Cedar Bend is more than the name of a road or a park or a company. Cedar Bend is a state of mind.
