Thanks, Dawg. I'm astounded with the skill it must take to do that.

That is a very nice tribute, Cheryl. So sad that we have to have events like 9/11 to inspire it.

A few of my friends posted a message on Facebook suggesting that people stay off of Facebook from 8:46 AM through 10:07 AM. It would be a real tribute if all social media took a break then. Not a problem for me, since nothing in this house "powers up" before noon, me included. Just because I'm on my feet does not mean I am functional...

Thank you, ladies. This pic only shows part of it, there are 1000 flags 'planted' on City Hall grounds. Every year since 9/11 we have a Parade of 1000 Flags down the boulevard - people either sign up to carry one of the city provided flags or bring their own. The townsfolk meet up at Freedom Park afterwards for a ceremony and the flags are re-set in their little cups on the grounds for a week.

CG, I saw that going around FB too....

My latest cake creation - this was for my MIL's birthday on Sunday. It was my first time making hard fondant panels and a molded "box top". The jelly beans are because she always keeps a dish of candies on her counter went the kids come over. It was a challenge as it is out of my comfort zone, but I enjoyed trying something new!
