acrobats and bicycles

introducing the chimps by the DCLS Allstars

belly pictures and the babies in ’em

ripples of sand under the calm waters of Lake Michigan

naps by the lake

hammocks that hang by the lake for napping

  1. Pho ga is a vietnamese chicken noodle soup. The broth is complex deliciousness and reportedly takes six hours to prepare…it is filled with long skinny rice noodles, and a simple assortment of vegies and chicken, garnish with bean sprouts, basil, jalapeno, lime and hotsauce to your liking. This is the soup that keeps me healthy through the winter.

    You can get it at Pho Hoa in Chicago and most any other Vietnamese restaurant.

  2. How can you write that mouthwatering description when I am in a land of meat pies and fat, oddly gray boiled sausages??

  3. We are a couple thousand miles from almost everything. I thought a Taiwan sidetrip would be part of the deal but boy did I forget my geography……………….11 hours and $2,000 dollars for that Asian meal!
