1. The picture Kai took of Mom and Hiram at the President's Own United States Marine Band concert Saturday night at Ferris High School in Spokane started making the rounds (went viral!) on Facebook and it was beautiful to see that Hiram got to meet Mom.

So, when the Europeans defeated the US once again, I didn't feel the sadness I've been conditioned to think I should feel. I was happy for Rory and the lads on the European side.
