US Men's Water Polo! Woo Hoo!

Awesome! The US Men's Water Polo team is going to play for gold! I am so stoked!

LinkP.S. I still think the coach looks like Will Ferrell.

Ithaca Farmers' Market'

Thanks to Cooking in the 'Cuse for the head's up about this article from the New York Times. I love the Ithaca Farmers' market. Josiah has many fond memories of selling honey and maple syrup w/his mom & brother when they were kids.

I love to go there w/La Prima & La Segunda. If we're feeling spendy we get them something from Silk Oak. Lunch at Macro Mama is superb - their corn fritters are da bomb [voted "Best Vendor at the Ithaca Farmers' Market" 2005 Ithaca Times]. Don't forget to get hopped up on caffeine if you go (especially if it's raining) at Gimme!

And of course apples from upstate New York are always stupendous. None better in my opinion. I'd love to get back to Ithaca this fall. We often pick fruit at Littletree Orchards.... MMMMmmmm!

Life in the City

I just love Gustave Caillebotte! I saw this image on Bob's Art Blog - Thanks Bob! - and just had to share.

It's hard to keep up with blogging, life, the Olympics and a sick granny (please send her good thoughts!). So, I'll post when I can.

Ciao, folks!

Olympics!!! WooHoo

This photo took me a while to understand. Weird eh?

I am totally enthralled by the Olympics right now... and the Track & Field events haven't even started yet!

brief round up

I'm going to do a fire drill in our home this weekend. Ever since September 11th, and even moreso after Katrina, I am a huge believer in disaster preparedness. I felt like I had it under control, but we really haven't been practicing enough. I'm getting on it. [based on my score (ironically, "9/11") I'm "a survival expert".]

And, not that I care what NYT Op Ed Columnists think [take THAT David Brooks!] but this at least caught my eye. I am not at all sure that Maureen Dowd has it right - Barack Obama as Fitzwilliam Darcy?? But, I'm going to mull it over. I am, of course, an un-abashed Edmund Bertram lover.

In other news:

Congrats to Lakshmi and Sam on the adoption of their beautiful baby George. We love you!

And, this is wahnsinn, I know but:

Way to go, Dogg! I'll give ya some love!
