Hello from Charlottesville. Visiting my son for Easter. Happy Passover and Easter to all my friends here
Sue, thank you for posting that Henry Longfellow poem quotation. I have been listening to a lot of recorded poetry in my car during my commutes lately.

What is the reason everyone is so excited about Tiger Woods winning? ( I don't follow golf much.)

For someone who was baptized, confirmed, and married in Catholic churches, I am one pretty pathetic palm folder.

seems like a good time to buy last year's model Vette which will be steeply discounted, and likely just as fast and more reliable. (You don't think GM worked out all the bugs on the new one before release?)

It's been a whole six days since I got back from our trip to Italy and I am finally starting to feel normal. Work this week was a bear. I don't know how people who travel a lot cope with jet lag. Last night Mrs. and I sat down to watch a BBC mystery and both fell asleep without ever finding out who dunnit. Also came back to find out that this year's Yankees really stink. The management is blaming it on injuries but it is really a poorly put together team with a questionable manager and pitching coach. Oh well, it's too nice a day to be inside.

Hey, can anyone fact check this for me? One of my commie classmates from high school posted on FB re: donkey chompers Chiquita Kruschev quote ”She came in second in the Microbiology category of the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair with a microbiology research project on the effect of antioxidants on the lifespan of the nematode C. elegans.” I know that this was debunked, but I couldn't remember the deets.

Back from our trip to Italy with these few vignettes. We were privileged enough to have dinner with the Italian family that is hosting my son while he is studying at the Boston College-University of Parma program. They invited some friends over as well, and wouldn't you know it, one of the friends stated how much she liked Trump. Of course there was a lib there, a retired professor, so don't read too much into it. However, it was refreshing. Second anecdote. My son is not very political, and he tends, like a lot of people his age, to make decisions on political matters based upon pretty superficial criteria. He mentioned that he likes Beto. Both he and my wife, had not heard the avocado colored turd prank story. My wife also mentioned that twice Beto has gotten away with serious crimes- DWI and leaving the scene of an an accident in one incident, and breaking and entering in another, due to his having an influential family. Guess what? Son is not a fan of Beto anymore.

Hello from Parma Italy. Participating in a scientific experiment to see if one can die from eating too much prosciutto. So far broke the gauges. Thank you for all the well wishes about the Virginia basketball team. Ciao

I have to go to a wake this afternoon-my first cousin. She was someone who made a few mistakes in life and paid for them big time, still a good person. It's easy to laud people with big accomplishments. Sometimes you just have to also appreciate those who just got through.
