As my friend Sandie and I were indulging in a delicious coffee at UCR this morning Sandie suggested a visit to Joann Fabrics in the New Hartford Shopping Center. Normally I would jump at the chance, despite the fact that I live less than 3 minutes from the store and I’m there so often they … More Newport Marketplace-treasures to be found without spending a fortune
Our day at the race started out wonderful. Blue skies, great friends and the potential of a great race. We decided to head out before the end of the race to beat the traffic as we had a four hour drive ahead of us. Just as we were walking out we heard the news of … More Indy at Pocono August 2015 joy and sadness
