Stay Class[ic]!!!

A big "Thank You" to the organizers of the five American events that are still offering the classic format CCI*. I will never do a one-star, but I love the fact that there are others out there who will not let the long-format three-day event die. The roots of our sport are so valuable and I am constantly appreciative of those who see this and fight to keep it alive, for the betterment of the sport of Eventing, as well as for the benefit of the riders and horses.

Get Well Soon!

I am so devastated to hear of this! Natasha Richardson has been one of my favorite actresses since I saw her portray Zelda Fitzgerald in a t.v. movie back when I was in college. This is so horrible and the mystery surrounding why she was "ok" one minute, then seriously injured the next is just unbelievable. I hope she can pull through!

Good Times

I loved watching the Vols make South Carolina look silly last night (on their own turf, no less). It was nice being on the business end of the stick, and not the receiving end. I'm much more enthusiastic about our SEC tournament chances now. If they can just play like that every game for the next month...who knows what might happen!!!

Something for Everyone!

This is not surprising to me at all! It's no Top Gear, but I guess it's a treat if you really like knives.

Realllllly bad

More bad news for TVA! As if the coal-ash spill wasn't horrifying enough...

How does this happen? I feel bad if I accidentally take a pen home in my purse from my office at an employee-owned engineering firm. These people were stealing from the government and from their neighbors!! I just don't understand our culture at all anymore.

If any of you (in the East Tennessee or Knoxville area) are interested, please contact the email listed in this message or let me know and I'll put you in touch with the person who sent this to me. I feel really bad for anyone who is losing a home and is having to give up their family pets.

Contact: Katherine at:

Thanks for your help spreading the word. Read their story below.

The story...
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- ------
------------ ----
This family has lost their home and the apartment does not allow dogs.
They are looking for a home for the two Labs. See below.

As many of you know, we are moving in just 2 weeks. Unfortunately, I have
still not been able to find a good home for Cookie and Coco .
We're not able to take our beloved doggies with us and I've been
desperately trying to find a home for both of them 'together'. They
were raised together and pine without each other. The Lab rescue have already
said that they would probably separate them, so this is my last resort.

Recently I tried to take Coco out in my car alone and she TOTALLY
refused to even get into the car without Cookie.....! !!! She absolutely
pulled back on her haunches until Cookie was by her side.Both doggies
are in great health, have been spayed and have ID chips implanted under
the skin.

Cookie turned 3 December 10th and Coco will be 3 April 1st. Cookie is
my mellow-yellow, and just loves her tummy rubbed. Coco is adorably
funny and lives for her "ball". She also loves the water..... Cookie
loves lots of attention. Both doggies are loyal and love to walk. They
have been raised with my 3 kids running around all over the place, and
have survived Sammy's constant hugging and love of 'dress-up', so
are fantastic family dogs. This is by far one of the most difficult
decisions I have ever had to make, but under the circumstances I have no

Please, Please forward these pics to all you know and help me find a
great home for these fabulous doggies. They are just adorable and it's
heartbreaking to let them go. In a perfect world, I hope that we could
find someone local so that we can still keep in touch and visit them.
I pray that someone, somewhere can help us keep Cookie and Coco
together, and love them just as much as we do. Thank you all from the
bottom of my heart.



My sister is definitely getting this cake for her birthday this year! How divinely realistic! Vintage Nintendo...only the best will do.
