Viva Carrie

This video reflects the joy of the Chilean miners' freedom. Carrie, the Golden, hails from Chile and is so adept at the merengue that she puts many of the stars on Dancing With the Stars to shame.

Amber, rest in peace

I just returned from the Veterinary Emergency Clinic where my dear Amber of 14 years lost her battle with breast and pancreatic cancer. I can't believe how fast this was - 9 days from diagnosis. I'm already missing her terribly and my little cat is feeling the change. She's stopped eating. I consider this ominous but I shall just have to let her adjust to being an only child before concluding that something medical is going on.
Oh, to love and then to lose....
