Beatrix Potter at the V&A

If you happen to be planning a trip to London, or abroad, you might want to go now and not miss the Beatrix Potter Exhibit at the V&A.

Potter's Home

Her botanicals are wonderful. 


Rhodia on the Road

On the way to Pittsburgh, we stopped at Dix Honda (State College) to check out the car, especially the sensor light, and was spotted with a Rhodia reporter.   Heather (holding her small Rhodia) got a big smile when she saw mine and pulled out hers.  She said, "I never go anywhere without my Rhodia."   A great advert for the product and a huge smile to boot.    Heather is a proof-reader, avid fountain pen user and a good sport as she gladly posed for this i-phone shot of her holding her small, but most useful Rhodia reporter.


New York City Marathon, Today and I am not there!

Marathon Route 2011

My beloved daughter and her husband drove up from Pittsburgh on Friday and are now running the New York City Marathon.  Unfortunately my recent surgery prohibits me from driving so I am eager to hear the results later today.

They both ran the full and half marathons in Pittsburgh and my daughter ran a full in Alaska to raise funds for leukemia--her first.
