Weekend Miscellaneous...

  • We ate really well this weekend... tacos on Friday night, a nice breakfast out on Saturday morning (mmmmm.... eggs benedict), steak on Saturday night, homemade macaroni and cheese on Sunday night... yum, yum, yum.
  • I had a really nice visit with my friend S yesterday afternoon. S's moronic husband left her in September, and I have been so awed by her poise and grace through the grief. And now, she is very much flourishing. She has recently received word that both the sale of her house and the purchase of her condo have been finalized, so she is moving forward with great success. Plus, she has the greatest dog in the world.
  • I have very fond memories of going to the horse races with my Mom when I was little, and standing right up against the fence to watch (and listen to!) the horses go by on the home stretch. But I just can't bring myself to watch anymore, even on television. And this weekend's tragedy at the Kentucky Derby is a vivid example of why. The thought of that poor horse dying on the track makes me physically ill.
  • And last but not least, we finally bought the TV that we've been saving up for for so long. It's a 46-inch LCD television made by Sony, and it's beautiful!! Baseball looks AMAZING in high definition!! The shopping experience was, for the most part, positive. We asked lots of good questions of our salesman, until we had a really good understanding of what we wanted to buy. And in the end, I actually suggested the model we finally decided on. We got the whole thing installed and set up on Saturday evening, though WH tells me that there are still some finicky things to play with. He's been busy reading instruction manuals and telling me the parts that I need to know. We had to move some furniture around in the basement to make everything fit, but the end result actually looks bigger and more spacious than what we had before. I think that we will get a lot of enjoyment out of this purchase!!

Have a great day folks! If you're lurking out there, drop me a comment and let me know you're around!

The tv sounds dee-lightful! I'm a huge fan of HD, especially for watching sports.

Not really lurking; just don't have much to say!

there's a great column, opinion piece I guess, in this morning's Prairie Metropolis daily paper, on the overbreeding and overtraining of thoroughbreds...
