Olympic Wrap-Up

Olympic Games

I am over fifty and, while watching the Olympics, am very glad about the fact.Regardless if it’s the snowboarding, bobsledding or downhill skiing, I have to give theseathletes a ton of credit.To do what they do, besides having a lot of years of training, is being fearless.I watch them going down the hills or tracks and watching them go in the air or do anything with speed,it is amazing.I can just imagine being at the beginning of what they are doing and being paralyzed with fear.God bless these young athletes, and, better them than me**lol**....more

US Olympic Skaters: American Doesn't Mean White, Or Does It?

When I first showed my mother in law a picture of my family she said, "So your father's American and your mother's Filipino.""Well, both my parents are American citizens but yes, my father's Polish-American and my mother's Filipino-American."...more
