9/11 and 18 Years Ago

I would be remiss if I made no post to make mention of the 9/11 anniversary. The National Geographic channel has been running a lot of programming, especially one I have mentioned on the blog before”. 9/10- the hours before.” If you have opportunity to catch it. It is extremely bittersweet knowing what we know is going to happen. If you miss it, you can also see it on You Tube. It is definitely worth catching.

Signing off on the eve of the 18th anniversary, thanking God for every day I have two feet on the ground and remembering ALL the poor souls of 9/11, especially those first responders who suffered long after the fact.

Bittersweet View

If there is a perk to being laid up for a week, I have caught up with reading and viewing some things  that have been on my to do list.

Keeping in mind that I was a history major in a prior life, I have caught a documentary on YouTube called ” 9/10- The last day of the World Trade Center”.

Knowing what we do now, the documentary takes various views from different people and places in lower Manhattan, and how daily life would never be the same. It does show a crossover of people, on that last day,and their reflection on 9/10 and 9/11.From college students, tv news anchors, terrorists, baggage handlers,relatives of victims, New York artisans who had studio space there, mayoral candidates,among others, I found this a well-done reflection to view before Sunday.

I strongly recommend it.

Roomba,Anyone?


My husband likes to call our two-week old Roomba our “third dog.”

I don’t think so.

If you look at the picture above,the Roomba is on a small rug under Zush’s new bed.


This is how Kasia usually sleeps or rests.Zush is pretty much the same, but usually on her new bed.Hah! Now I have to sequester them, and I , like them,wait patiently for the Roomba to finish it’s job.

Many people have seen the videos of the cat on Roomba on You Tube. On behalf of Zusher and Kasia, we’ll happily guarantee that you’ll never see them riding on a Roomba.
