I'm pretty sure this car will have Swedish or Danish name.

Hmm, Latin wouldn't be inappropriate. Volvo means I roll in Latin.

I was going by her color (Silver) and found it fortuitous that the wood goddess was the mother of twin boys, allowing her to wear an amulet that depicts the males.

Brynhilde, Freydis, Haldana, Hela, Hildur, Idona, Jord, Magna, Mildri

Mista - female Greyfell - male These are the two I like the best.

I'm waiting for Mark to get back from working out, so I can start dinner. Hotdogs with onion rings don't take that long, but it's nice to get a head start.

Puttanesca sauce is starting to smell really good. I picked up some bow-tie pasta to go with it.'

Got the fenders on my bike, Shrek and I rode for about 5 miles. Riding outside is a lot different than riding the recumbent in the living room.

I just finished watching the National Geographic Special, Fenway Park on PBS. I have to admit, it caught the feeling why Bostonians feel about Fenway Park the way they do. The Park is 100 years old. The oldest baseball park in either league. If you have a major league in your city or state, you should watch it. I am a Bostonian and I love Fenway Park. I found myself welling up more than once. And I can say, I have been to Fenway Park. I was 17 and a new bride. My husband took me and for $2.00 we got to sit in the bleachers. Son #1 does repair work for a man that owns a lot of properties. He has a box seat and every time Boston plays the Yankees, my son goes to see the game usinig his pass. Free! I should ask him to take me sometiime. I can use The Ride and take him as my caregiver and he rides free. Then he gets me into the game free.

It is really a workout if you are riding into the wind. Good for the heart though. I asked Winthrop about bike riding. They looked at my two heads and nixed the idea instantly. Balance is the problem. I have vertigo and never know when it will strike.

Making my first batch of bagels with the repaired Kitchen Aid. I cut the recipe down from 18 to 12 bagels per batch and I'm making two batches today. That should reduce the strain on the mixer and give me 33% more bagels too.

I suffer from a form of vertigo myself, Addie, and it is no fun. At least with mine it comes in spells ("crystals" in my inner ear become go out of alignment and I have to do some exercises or go to the specialist to get it fixed depending on the severity).

But when it happens I have to make sure I always use my cane (even inside), don't drive and be careful getting up and down, turning, etc.
