Belle Seems to have somethings going on.....

Worried father relayed that "it is not a brain tumor". A favorite expression in our family...... Two seizures, no apparent cause. As we all know, these sort of mysteries make us all very cranky.....
More will be reported when more is known.....

Miracles

Come in lots of ways and lots of sizes. In our world it is making it to graduation in good health and with hope for a great future. In Canada it is the Americans winning the hockey game against the Canadians.

I think we all need to be on the look out for some miracles because they can slip by without us noticing.

Mom sent bird feed. The birds will have their morning miracle.

Dartmouth, Who would have even imagined it might have been an option?


She had an interview for Dartmouth...... It am still amazed at that but then I have been amazed since she was born. She has 4 possible colleges and is waiting for the rest of the 7 to reply. Lots of girls are hearing and the rejections are starting to come. I am sure a few will be headed this way but then life is about acceptance and rejection.


Now to important stuff. Norway has made curling fashion the hit of the Winter Olympics. Mom wants a curling stone. As one of my friends said, when you are 78 years old, you get what ever you want. I am sure she already has the pants.
This snow picture is to remind us that there should be snow in Canada.

Chinese New Year and the Pomello

Pomellos are yellow, They are giant and I mean giant, did I mention giant to the max sort of like grapefruit. They start to appear in the Asian Markets in January. I am no sure if anyone eats them but they are spectacular. They look like grapefruit but are as sweet as an orange. They are fragrant and beautiful. They have very very thick skin and lots of that white soft padding stuff that comes in some citrus. They are worth the effort at least one time a year. I regret not taking a picture before I ripped it all apart.

It is the year of the tiger. I am not sure if that is good or bad but it just is. I wonder of tigers eat pomellos or just bat them around.
