100th Indy 500

Keeping an eye on the 100th Indy 500… they’re showing it live on ESPN! Rare to be able to see a Iive event streaming for free. I’m not that into cars racing but the coverage is interesting with the sounds, the camera-on-every-car perspective, the statistics they tap into…

At Texas Roadhouse… eating chicken!  Ha!

6:16PM Sassy
Spring flowers!

I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for the tiny white Lily of the Valley.  They grew all around the front porch of our house in the old home town.  So pretty!  and they smelled wonderful on a spring morning!

The first time I went back after we moved, someone had dug them all up!  So sad… they cut down all our huge trees too.  Will never understand that.  *sigh

Royals in India

April 17, 2016 Sunday

From Sally Bedell Smith’s Facebook page:
A much anticipated moment today in India, when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge posed together at the Taj Mahal–symbolizing the strength of their marriage only days before their fifth wedding anniversary. The famous landmark was built in 1631 by the Murghal emperor for his wife to signify his eternal love.

William’s father, Prince Charles, visited the Taj in November 1980, less than three months before he proposed to Lady Diana Spencer. He vowed to return one day with his wife. The tragic sequel occurred 12 years later during the couple’s visit to India. Diana went to the Taj on her own, and in a famous photo of her sitting forlornly on a marble bench for five minutes, she let the world know that her marriage to the Prince of Wales was on the rocks.

William and Kate’s photo today went a long way toward proving that history isn’t repeating itself.p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px ‘.SF NS Text’; color: #1d2129; -webkit-text-stroke: #1d2129} span.s1 {font-kerning: none}

Bizarre warmth

March 9, 2016 Wednesday

12:42pm Sassy
Let the record show that it was 70 degrees and I was sitting outside on a bench in JFK Park along the Charles River in my shirt sleeves on March 9! So bizarre. Whee!

2:51PM Sassy
Nothing like a black forest ham sandwich from Darwin’s!

Mushing by mountains and 2,000 marbles

March 8, 2016 Tuesday

9:22PM
The photos from the race are amazing today – Northern lights, cute doggies in booties, massive mountains, mushers and tireless volunteers helping making it all happen!

Ralph Johannessen drops down onto the frozen surface of Puntilla Lake in the Alaska Range. Mushers in the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race came and went from the Rainy Pass checkpoint for much of Monday, March 7, 2016.

10:56PM Sassy

Martin Molin’s Music machine for you!  He makes music with 2,000 marbles!  Check out this video.
