Viva Diva

We watched Animal Planet's broadcast of the April 2009 Harrisburg Kennel Club Dog Show last night. Diva the pug won the toy group and made it to the finals. Blazing Star, a doberman pinscher, won best in show.Mouse the bulldog won the non-sporting group. He is called Mouse because he has mouse ear markings on his backside.

DCI Houston

The LNG Sokoto pulled in to the canal this week.

We went to a DCI show in Houston last night.
Here are The Academy out of Tempe AZ.
These are the Colts out of Dubuqe IA.
I always love the Madison Scouts out of Madison WI. They always do a great job.
Here is Santa Clara Vanguard. They got the first standing ovation of the night.

The Blue Devils performed the encore performance. The final ratings for the night were Blue Devils - 1, Cavaliers - 2 and Santa Clara Vanguard - 3.

Blackberry Tea

I made some blackberry tea today from some frozen berries picked over a month ago. The berries really lose some of their coloring in the freezer. I mashed the berries, added the tea, and let it set for an hour.
Then I strained the tea and added sugar and water. This is an excellent recipe to use.
