Easiest Website to Navigate for the Olympics.

Leave it to NBC to make a good website for the Olympics.

What's up with the Olympics?

300 million spent on the opening ceremony and their website, maybe 20 bucks. It's awful. Come on you techno show offs...where's your sense of community? As in all the world? The worlds largest LCD screen, the opening floor like the Colosseum, the precision fireworks and video on the ceiling. It was, without a doubt the most impressive opening ceremonies I can remember.

But, PLEASE GIVE US A DECENT WEBSITE we can actually navigate! You know user friendly?

Off my soap box on that subject for now. My other gripe about the Olympics, is why can't soccer players from professional teams play for their home countries? and what's up with the age requirement being 23 and younger, then you get 3 wild card players...Ronaldino for Brazil? I know it's the opening season for some teams areas, but, the Olympics is only once every 4 years. If you really want the world to "catch on" to soccer/football you need to have spectacular games in which the whole world is you guys in America need to work on that...WAKE UP MLS!

OMG, I better go hide

10 out of 14 done-woohoo!!

Chemo and radiation (especially radiation) be dammed it's all so horrible, but we endure (that's easy for me to say) it so my girl will live to be the wonderful independent wild child adult she was destined to be. Really she's not so wild, but, she is
my bald headed beauty, of which I am so proud. Number 10 out of 14 is over, another 5 nights in the hospital complete. Jennifer gets a 2 week "breather" then back at it. She's going in for scans next week and we are praying it's all still good. Thank you to the many wonderful thoughts and prayers from near and far, bloggers, quilters and anyone in my extended family of support for Jennifer. All you've done for her is truly and greatly appreciated.

What have I been working on lately is that ole hand sewing hexagon, Tillie's Mosiac project.
The original plan was to make a king size quilt, but, the best laid plans...I'm thinking it might weigh too much. You'd be surprised how much 1 inch hexagons and their 1/4 inch seams weigh when sewn together.

Normally when you make a quilt and construct it, you go block by block or strip by strip, but, you work in rows. Since this quilt has some toile placements in it,
I'm working on the the rosettes of the toile centers, surrounded by the hexagons.

Ah well, life goes on. Here's a contrast of my Jeni's style and me. Guess who is
