Congrats, Bal! You look so magnificently classy in that wedding photo. LOVE the veil!

My happiness is that I'm working on a small veggie and berry farm for the summer. 8 hours in the sun and dirt. I'm sore and tired and just got my first gnarly sunburn of the season. I am incandescently happy. Office work can suck it.
Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the horse!
Like to see some stuck-up jockey boy sittin' on Dan Patch? Make your blood boil? Well, I should say!

It's not work if it makes you happy. Happy for you.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Happiness is getting over stomach flu (or bug or virus or whatever I had). It's so boring, being sick. I'm dragging myself back to work tomorrow, armed with anti-nausea meds and a fake smile! :D

Canada has decided to legalize marijuana for recreational use after a bill was passed by its senate on Tuesday.

America’s northern neighbor will become the first G-7 industrialized nation and only the second in the world to have a legal nationwide cannabis market after the 52 to 29 vote.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau hopes that legalizing the drug will have a positive effect overall.

“It’s been too easy for our kids to get marijuana—and for criminals to reap the profits,” Trudeau said on Twitter.

The only other country to legalize the cultivation, distribution and consumption of cannabis is Uruguay, where the government has aimed to take that business model away from criminals. In Canada, medical marijuana was already legal.

We are ensconced in our Saratoga digs until mid-September. What's not to be happy.

Thanks for the good wishes. Health has been wonky lately, but somehow it improves a few days after I get here. Not sure what it is.

Congratulations to Starbucks who managed to announce their strawgate solution without direction from the government!
