Watching Jeopardy

Husband and I have been enjoying the daily quiz show Jeopardy as we begin our empty-nesters life. It is relaxing to sit and watch it after dinner, and it is enjoyable to learn some new things. Like the existence of this sundial in Argentina at the Tropic of Capricorn line. Interestingly, we like to challenge ourselves by trying to answer some of the final answers based on the category alone. Before the question is even posed. We've gotten some of them! Well, mostly Husband has. Can you guess the answer for a question with the category “Italian inventors?” Unfortunately we guessed Marconi. The answer (and questions) was about the barometer. But we have gotten some right.

Michael Emmerich's wedding

Number One was a groomsman and the photos were just posted. He looks so handsome! Michael and he met in seventh grade and have been good friends ever since! We have such good and fun memories of Michael at our house in Lincoln, Nebraska! His mom Phyllis was one of the first friends I made at daily mass--I learned so much about Czech-roots rural life from her memories of growing up at the farm. We very early on realized we shared a birthday and patron saint--Saint Scholastica--and celebrated the fact every year.

Old photos

I have been looking at old photos I took from Mamae's family albuns... thinking of framing for Christmas.

Thank You

We opened the Jabuticaba Jam from sis Tereza and it is DELICIOUS! The best Brazilian jam I've had! Below is a photo of Tereza with the Chomicha ladies at Ula's baby shower. We miss our Polish branch of the Braga-Henebry spiritual family!
