Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell was the author of yesterday's quote.
Not much on the agenda today. I plan on going to the Body & Mind Expo at the Convention center this morning. Something different. On the way back I am getting Mom and taking her to get an anniversary gift and card for my sister and husband's anniversary tomorrow. Then this afternoon I am going to introduce my computer to my income tax program website so I can download some updates. The two have been arguing lately and I want them to make peace. Then this evening I am going to watch The Oregon Ducks take on Mary's Washington Huskies. Oregon has been doing good the last few years. Washington has been down but has been on the rise lately with some damn good coaching. Oregon is 7-1 and Washington is 6-2. This is the last game in Husky stadium due to some renovations. Going to be a great game!
And the game comes on the night that you have to set your clocks back an hour. Spring forward fall back. Don't forget!

There were no televisions or computers or video games or the like to just sit and watch or sit and play with. We were Active!"
Makes me pause a little. Also this week there was another cancer related article:
That is really surprising because how many articles have their been about wine being healthy for the heart? Confusing at best.
Let's end on a fun note. Well not that fun because it ends on a story about a wedding that ended. It only took seventy-two days for reality star Kim Kardashian to end her wedding to a basketball player. Still we should mourn the end of the wedding because by Hollywood Standards that is a long marriage:
