OK, I’m  biased here because this is my neighborhood, but it’s awesome to see so much effort into rebuilding a neighborhood on its way to success!!!! And great to get some recognition for it.

Go Nats!!

Man, I love those guys. They are SO fun to watch. And they were SO sweet when my daughter broke her arm. While I’m on the topic of the Nats, props to Ryan Zimmerman who last fall donated a first-rate Little League field to DC Little League, and the Nats also donated uniforms for the Little Leaguers. (Here’s a pic of the field dedication ceremony with Zimmerman and Screech!! Nats Coach Dusty Baker is there too.)

The power of social media used for a great cause! We got so many laughs and good times from this challenge and it actually led to a scientific breakthrough that will improve the lives of ALS sufferers and their families. So great job to all the ordinary men, women and children who contributed to this medical success story!

Giant Pandas No Longer Endangered! Hurray!

It’s official: giant pandas are no longer endangered

September 12, 2016

I love this story because humans have actually saved another species from near-extinction! According to this article, the Chinese government’s forest conversation efforts are in large part responsible for the resurgence of the panda population. 🙂
