Glad all went well and no stones were thrown :) Those vids are wicked funny! I need one of those budgie cats for MIL. Don't know if you followed the whole cat and canary caper we went through with her. We now have 2 of her dang cats and she has 2 canaries (not yellow and that barely peep, let alone sing) and still wants to try another cat - over my dead body! I gottt pass one of them on to Chris10a who LOL canaried with me in sympathy.
It's the Irish ninja rocking the green :) Hubs is half Irish and we got married on St. Patricks Day so we break out the corned beef and cabbage. Been totally off the grid for almost a week. Went to Eugene OR to see a Tool concert on Fri - they were awesome both musically and visually - some very strange but compelling vids plus lots of laser and other lights which I love. Then went to the ocean at Newport and just got home late yesterday, How was the res of Brier? Everyoe stay calm? Who won the big Stone Tropyhy?
"Stones" - OK that sounds much more right :) Oh yeah, wouldn't they just love to saddle up the Cruise missiles :) I really don't know enough of the current indepth politics there but I do know Russia has a lot of support by ethnic Russions living in the Crimea. Another case of a country fractured by ethnicity and culture. It has been occupied and fought over during the past centuries with the Soviet Union the winner until their independence. Apparently today the Crimean legislators have voted to leave the Ukraine for Russia. Ukaine is saying - not! This is definitely turning into an internal struggle that we should not have any part of. Seems like the Crimea should put it to the vote of the people living there with international monitoring to make sure of a fair vote and let the chips fall where they may.
Well, guess have to wait and see if she tosses it back. Brier starts tonight right? Be safe out there - those curling pucks (what do you call them?) look heavy LOL Those are the ones I should be watching for sure. Wonder what their take is on the Ukraine mess. Hope we do not now beef up our Euro posts after finally getting mostly out of the Middle East. Bu sacntons? Putin will just go Phhhffft - a pox on your sanctions!
