Where love and happiness lie (a good blog, found serendipitously >)

Through the blog Cup of Jo I found this blog, Color Me Katie. It’s filled with lots of warm and wonderful blog posts.

This one in particular, lalalala love, has a series of photos of people being photographed. Except the photos we see are like this:

As she says:

The next time you see a bunch of people getting ready to take a group picture…stand behind them. That’s where all the love is!

There are lots of good posts on her blog. Go to Color Me Katie and see.


The 2011 New York City Marathon is this weekend

The ING New York City Marathon is this weekend! I ran it years ago and it was one of the best things I have ever done. The organization was superb, and the New Yorkers that came out to cheer were exceptionally good. If you want to run a great race and have a great experience, I highly recommend trying to enter it.

This race in particular will be interesting because Deba Could Be the First New Yorker to Win the City’s Marathon.

She is originally from Ethopia, but she now calls New York home. If she were to win, this would be a huge boost for running in the United States. I hope she does — it’s always great for the home town representative to win — but it will be tough, for the NYC Marathon is very competitive. Let’s see! Go Deba!

A great explanation of why pluto is no longer a planet

Can be found here: Why Pluto is No Longer a Planet. When Pluto was drummed out of the rank of planets in the solar system, there was alot of sentimental complaining about this, including from yours truly. However, once you read that post, you realize that the only reason for including it *is* sentimentality, and not science.I highly recommend you read more about this: you’ll learn alot more about the solar system in the process.
