Rosie, Joy and two of Willow. Rosie's probably leaving soon, which is a bummer; she's sweet and quiet-minded. I spent some time with Chief this morning - we had a nice connection. (In the bottom picture, Willow had spotted a coyote on the other side of the fence - I only caught a glimpse as it ran off.)

If you would read the Bible (3 Quarks Daily).

Reading The Odyssey to my four-month-old (Hyperallergic).

'Trash girl' won't back down (TreeHugger).  "...if they are going to call me trash girl, they can say it with respect." Right on.

North and South Korean teams to march as one at Olympics (NY Times). Awesome!

Fun fact: I spent much of the 1988 Seoul Olympics on the DMZ but I was able to attend some of the equestrian events.

We have some nasty weather coming in, so I got to learn how to put on turnout blankets this evening. (We had to wait till sunset because the front was dragging its feet and we didn't want anyone getting overheated.)
