Why Marathons Should Be Illegal
Topic: Featured Link
Larry found this link that I would like to share with everyone. It's an ESPN Page 2 article about why marathons should be illegal. This is especially funny since Larry is training for the Edinburgh marathon coming up in June. Marathons Should Be Illegal

Amen, JKR!!!
Now Playing: "Stupid Girl" by Pink
Topic: Featured Link
Please, please, please take a look at this rant by JK Rowling. It has nothing whatsoever to do with Harry Potter, but everything to do with how warped our society is when it comes to female body image. JKR Rant (This is a text only version. It's the only way I could put a link to it. If you want to check out this rant on her site proper, go to, click on the hairbrush, then on "miscellaneous," and then on "for girls only, probably...")
Weight has ALWAYS been an issue for me, as I'm sure it unfortunately is for most American (and apparently British) women. I was so glad to see JKR use her fame to try to help girls realize their weight is the last thing about themselves they need to be worrying about.

Billy Mills
Topic: Featured Link
Larry came across this article and shrared it with me. Bill Mills Speaks In Advance of Torch Relay It's a couple of years old, but is still relevant. The article is brief, yet encompasses so many things.

Cool Cars
Topic: Featured Link
My mom sent me this link: Cool Cars It took me a minute or two to figure out what the deal with them was. I didn't check to see how much they are, but they seem like a cool thing to have!

What We Did On Our Summer Vacation
Topic: Featured Link
Just in time for winter! I finally am done with our summer vacation site. I have the feeling it's going to be a bit of a work in progress (Thank you, Paula, for the much needed info.!), but it's up on the web and ready for perusal. Holly and Ryan's Summer Vacation When you see how many pictures are on it, you'll understand what took me so long! Enjoy!

American Humane
Topic: Featured Link
American Humane is my new featured link. American Humane I have been giving to American Humane for a few years now. Most recently they did a lot to help animals that were victims of hurricane Katrina. Every year I buy my Christmas cards from American Humane. Please consider doing so this year, or at least just drop by their site to see what they're all about. Thank you!

The Valyermo Fall Festival
Topic: Featured Link
I've decided to add a "Featured Link" section to this blog. (See the bottom of the side panel for the link.) In a month, St. Andrew's Abbey will have it's 48th annual fall festival, located in Valyermo, California. This festival is truly near and dear to my heart. I've been going to the festival as long as I can remember. I went with my parents and grandparents as a small child. As an adolescent I performed there with my dance school. I went with friends as a teenager, and with my husband as an adult. As much as I enjoy living overseas, something always tugs at my heart in late September, because I know I'm missing the Fall Festival. It started out small - at the time the Abbey was a Priory. Now it's become quite a large festival. I feel like we've grown up together. What's truly amazing about the Festival is that even though it's grown, it still retains its humility and serenity. St. Andrew's Abbey is one of the most tranquil places I've ever been. I always feel relaxed and recharged after a visit there. I highly, highly encourage anyone anywhere near Valyermo to go to this festival. It's one of my most favorite things and I know that anyone who goes will have a wonderful time. I'm looking forward to the day I can take Ryan there, and share the tradition with him.
