I may actually have to watch Vasaloppet this year


Sweden’s annual “Vasaloppet” cross-country ski race held on the first Sunday in March and widely believed to be the longest and oldest of its kind in the world, is hugely popular in this country. Although it is typically won by one of the sport’s elite athletes, virtually anyone crazy enough to want to ski 90 …

Do not mess with Sir Richard Attenborough

I was SO looking forward to watching the latest series of  world-renown BBC nature documentaries, Frozen Planet. We were mesmerized by the original Planet Earth series, to the point that we could not pull ourselves away from the TV one winter Saturday when the Discovery Channel showed all 11 episodes back-to-back. We also enjoyed Blue Planet, …

Royal Wedding Entrance Dance

  via youtube.com This parody of the 2009 viral video hit Jill and Kevin’s Wedding Entrance Dance is actually pretty cool, although I do miss the catchy Chris Brown song from the original. Some of the look-a-likes T-Mobile found to cast in it could pass for their real-life counterparts. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised …

Who knew The Queen was a choco-holic?

Turns out there is a second cake being served up at this month’s Royal Wedding, much to the relief of any self-respecting Yankee who happens to be invited. Prince William has requested a “Chocolate Biscuit Cake” as the Groom’s Cake, and it turns out it is actually a favorite of his grandmother’s…so much so that …
