Well, the Winter Olympics are on and I am enjoying the heck out of them but they are tiring me out. I can only Snowboard Slopestyle, Ski and engage in Luge runs so many times before I am totally pooped. I am trying to get my energy up for curling but wow...it is hard work too...don't let the skill of the curling team fool you for one minute. All of that sweeping is a "ring tailed tooter!"

I managed the speed skating tonight okay but the short track is a killer. Do they know how hard it is to keep up with the short track skaters as they go flying around the track? Each competitor needs a distinctive flag flying from their helmet or something so we will know who is who. I will write to the IOC about that.

Julie Mancuso of the US won the bronze medal in the Women's Alpine Super Combined Skiing event. I was so glad to see an Olympian whooping and hollering about just getting on the podium. I know that the athletes work hard and are disappointed when they don't get a gold medal but most of them talk about "losing" when they have WON a silver or bronze medal. Julie was a shining star for being excited to just be on the podium. I know it made her have a "special standing" in Olympic history but you didn't hear her saying, "Well, it would have been better if I had gotten the gold?" Julie, I applaud you.

Not much going on at SageMoon Cottage. On Saturday, the little dog turned eight years old. She celebrated by destroying her birthday toy in record time. LOL!!!! We also had a big snow event Friday night. I didn't get pictures of it but it was quite a bit of snow for Little Rock. Not as much as we got Christmas 2012 but quite a bit nevertheless.

Well, I guess actually watching television counts as SOMETHING going on at SageMoon Cottage. We have watched less than 20 hours of television since the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver. We were able to watch the opening ceremonies of the 2012 games in London and then we could no longer get a signal from the station broadcasting the Olympics and could not afford at that time to get a new antenna. So the only thing we have watched since the 2010 Winter Games have been the 2012 opening events, tornado events and the news a few times.(I usually watch the news on the computer rather than the television.) Since we started watching Olympic coverage on Friday night we have watched more television that we did for four years. It was very exciting to finally be able to get a new antenna AND be able to get the station that carries the Olympics, even if all of those sporting events are wearing me out.

On Sunday, was the 50th anniversary of The Beatles first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. I remember watching and wondering why all of those girls were screaming. I didn't understand that at all. I still don't.

My favorite story related to The Beatles involves my younger brother. When I was about 21 and he was about 12 I took him out shopping and goofing off with me.(I did that a lot.) While we were together I told him that I wanted to go into Moses Music store to look for a 45. He asked me what I was looking for and I told him, "Something by The Beatles." Well, actually I was looking for another record but to him the answer was " 'Something' by The Beatles. Later that week he and my mom were at the same shopping center and he asked her if he could go in and look for a record that he wanted to get for me. She let him and he bought, "Something" for me. I still have it and treasure it. What a sweet gift that was!

As I write this I guess that I should feel bad that I didn't mention that Saturday was also my baby brother's birthday too. He turned 48. I can't believe that he is almost 50. I remember the day he came home from the hospital and changing his poopy diapers. When did we all get so much older. Sigh!

Well, that is all I can think of for right now! Have a good one!

Ciao!
