Hadn't thought of that ... good point!

I started three new plants from cuttings from the cactus and gave them away as Christmas gifts. One of them went to a co-worker who has it here in the office, and it's growing like crazy, the same as its mama plant.

It usually blooms only around Thanksgiving and Christmas, but when we got back from Maryland (the same day as the Marathon bombings), there was one single little bud on the cactus. It's getting bigger and looks like it's going to bloom in a couple days. It's a little eerie, because it's only one bud---as though the cactus is commemorating the bombing victims.

what a lovely thought, I believe you are right, there are many amazing signs that are unexpected and beautiful amid the horrors that sometimes happen. These things remind us that the good remains no matter how some try to get rid of it.

I was at the zoo last 3 years ago, took a bus load of kids there for the
day. I am not a lover of zoos and would not go on my own, but I do know they are great for saving many species and for teaching people about animals. Kids sure love going. Glad you had a great day! That meerkat sounds like she is due soon, to bad they are born underground, would love to see the babies.

I'm eating very healthy this week, but Saturday will be my cheat day. I mean I'm going to go on one heck of a BBQ bender! The amount of ribs and hot links I will consume at that place will possibly make women turn away and cause children to cry. It will not be for the faint of heart!

Okay, sorry...just a little excited, if you can't tell. Ready for this school to be over and the fun summer to start.

I hope you all are having a great week! I might show up to the Pines tonight and start my bender a little early...

Congratulations and I'll make sure the EMT's are standing by!!!!
