The pictures don't do them justice, as they are even more beautiful, interesting, and incredible than that.
The invitations for the breast cancer event are lovely, and I enjoyed helping to get them ready. If anyone wants to attend, it is quite the event at $200.00 per person, with $100.00 tax deductible, and it sounds fun. It is appetizers, dinner, a silent and live auction, and dancing.
My mood has lifted, despite reading that the U.S. Department of Agriculture is cutting back testing for Mad Cow disease by 90%, from one cow per hundred slaughtered to one per thousand. Of course, the obvious solution is to not eat meat, but, still, I am disturbed by this administration's determination to do nothing to protect us where it really matters. The National Cattlemen's Beef Association applauded. I wonder how they would feel if everyone in the country stopped eating beef.
I am also concerned that Century Theatres, which includes our beloved Sequoia, has been sold to an outfit from Texas. I worry that we will lose the distribution of less common films.
Also, El Paseo, Steve and my all-time favorite restaurant has been sold. The review says the menu is up-dated and the portions, though delicious, are tiny. So, life continues, and all is a ball of change.
The wind is howling, and the doors are slamming. It feels like summer should around here. The door to the downstairs slammed shut, with Bella on one side, and Tiger on the other. You've never heard such crying. They like to be together, and, now, they are. A joyful weekend to All!
