Thanks to my nephew and friend Krishna here is something that will take a few minutes to watch but is well worth it.
Krishna is a medical doctor in fact a pathologist and he is always on the hunt for great science stories that he shares with all his family and friends.
Hope you all are enjoying « The Cup » and that there will be one or two goals just as memorable as this one. This helps me see that a bend is a thing of beauty
Blessing # 12 People like Krishna with a passion to share and explain the wonders of science.

With the start of the World Cup we will all be rooting for our favorite teams.
This year Aaron has completed a Bracket. He had to predict the out come of each game including the score
If he wins he gets to go to the winning country. Chances of winning are probably a billion to one but it is fun.
Are you doing anything special?
BLESSING # 11 – Sports that bring us all together
There are some words that make me laugh and one of those is BOUFFANT.
It is an innocent enough word but for those of us who work in the food industry or in pharmaceutical or medical professions BOUFFANT things can really wreck havoc on our hairdo.
Then again, if you have a hairdo that is a bit BOUFFANT maybe a cap might help.
Share the word that makes you laugh the most
BLESSING # 10 – Hairspray
If you had to choose just one book what would it be?
Only read this book a few years ago but with a son from China it is a story that touched my heart.
Share your very best book
Blessing # 9 Books to share

Around our home we have lots of rabbits. I nearly took one out this evening on my way home.
They are fast when they want to be and this guy tonight dodged me at that last minute. Raised my heart rate to a real BOOM BOOM
They eat our garden plants with abandon just as Benjamin Bunny did in that famous tale of Beatrix Potter.
In spite of all their nonsense we still love them because they are cute critters.
Blessing # 8 All Creatures Great and Small
What storms we have had this past week. Our poor dog Dibley just hates them. He shakes like a leaf and there is nothing we can do to help him. Just cuddle and wait .
BLESSING #7 The sun always shines again
This morning at a meeting my friend Pastor Sharon Hausmann talked about the need to recognize and appreciate that each of us have different gifts.
Sharon mentioned a saying of Mother Teresa that I had never heard before. It was certainly a blessing to start the day.
The dear mother said that
“If we have no peace it is because we have forgotten that we BELONG to each other.”
Blessing # 6 Sharon and those like her who make us think

There is something so special about bubbles. They make bread rise they make sponge light they make mousse mousy.
We might whip them up in icecream, or magically make them through chemistry in cakes. We might even call in a friendly little bug or two to toot them out for our delight through fermentation.
Our favorite drinks are full of bubbles in various shapes and size from the powerful pettiante Perrier to the smoothest glass of Guinness.
But there is nothing quite as wonderful as a tall slim glass filled full of bubbly itself on a Friday night.
Can you imagine just how flat our world would be without them?

Any British BOOMER will for sure remember Basil Brush. He is looking as young and fresh as ever.
Naughty little fox he knows all the tricks. Food and fun really are the best way to keep young and beautiful
BLESSING # 5 Those who make us laugh
Growing up in Belfast was an experience. Those of us who did so can empathize with the kids of Syria or Afghanistan today.
Kids of war torn lands take heart. With wisdom there will be peace in your land like there is in mine today. It can take time but never ever give up hope
Strive to make a difference. Smile and embrace the person who is not like you .
Love your neighbor as yourself .
So when the day comes, like it has for us BOOMERS of Belfast that we see a city renewed, hailed as a must go destination in Lonely Planet you can feel happiness beyond believe that you made it through the dark days and into the light.
BLESSING #4 All Those Who Work for Peace
