    I cannot believe some of those pictures, I am absolutely heartbroken and disgusted. Thoughts to the city of Boston, especially the victims

Of course I suppose the best way to pay them back is to be that person for someone else. "

    I read in the newspaper that the 2014 Boston Marathon is coming up on Monday. I hope and pray it will go off without a hitch.
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Thank you, we are all basically concerned but determined. A MassArt student pulled a "prank" on the anniversary date of the bombing, claimed it was "art" but got arrested for it, as it was just plain stupid of him, not clever or thought-provoking or anything.

    Karen, how was the marathon day? I have only heard good things about it on the radio, which makes me happy. I have a friend from church who was in it

    I have friends who went, and they all had a good time! Everything went very well, the weather was perfect, and o no one had any complaints! Just my friend's son, who is almost six, had an unfortunately messy incident - some person had dropped some "gel" energy concoction in a packet that looks like an energy bar in the roadway, and when a subsequent runner stepped on it, Alexander got coated in sticky goo! Otherwise it all went well, the crowds were huge but well-behaved!

    Happy Patriots' Day, Massachusetts! I didn't even realize until I heard some results on news radio- today is Boston Marathon day and Patriots' Day Meb Kefezighi (sp?) finished 8th, yay Meb! I have a co-worker who is a marathon runner, and she is running in her first Boston Marathon. She has done the Chicago marathon. My friend from church isn't in the Boston Marathon this year.

    Thank you - rainy day for the annual Battle of Lexington and Concord reenactments, and for the race, but spirits were high for both! My new friend from church has run marathon, but is working her way up to a Boston attempt!
