Merry Christmas

Mark Kanemura was on So You Think You Can Dance a few years back. He regularly posts short, entertaining videos like this one from last year. As you can see, Mark has enough Christmas spirit for all of us.

So for those of you who are celebrating Christmas, I hope you have a wonderful holiday and for the rest of you, enjoy this ridiculous video. I’m sure it will bring a smile to your face.

Hey Santa, all I want for Christmas is…

Santa's helperI’ve been really good this year so I thought I’d let Santa know that if he can’t give me world peace or control of the U.S. Senate, I’d like to have this under my tree.

Happy Thanksgiving

Rio de Janeiro BrazilIt is Thanksgiving in the US, and I am spending the day with Sergio, my parents and a good friend in Portsmouth, NH. I want to wish everyone celebrating this holiday a relaxing and fun day. The photo above dates back to Thanksgiving 2015 when we were visiting Rio de Janeiro with friends.

Happy Halloween

Salem, MASong of the Witches: “Double, double toil and trouble”
BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
(from Macbeth)

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Cool it with a baboon’s blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.

Notes: Macbeth: IV.i 10-19; 35-38

Happy birthday USA

Independence DayIt is Independence day in the USA and while I feel like our reputation has taken a hit in recent years (a self-inflicted hit at that), there is still plenty to be proud of and to celebrate so for everyone in the US and to those living abroad; have a wonderful July 4th.

Happy Easter

Here is a throwback to the spring of 2002 when Sergio and I lived in Back Bay and our neighbor was raising “show bunnies”; you read that correctly by the way.

We figured this would be our only chance to be photographed with so many bunnies so we took the opportunity and made the most of it.

Happy New Year

Since today is New Year’s Eve day, and tomorrow is a holiday I’ll refrain from posting my usual “What’s Happening This Week” and leave you with this image.

I suggest that you choose the color of your underwear wisely. If you’re in a sharing mood, leave the color of underwear you plan to wear tonight in the comments section.
