Creative Destruction

Feeling Surly today.  So: I will NOT miss Hummer, Pontiac, or Saturn.  The marketplace has spoken.  Saab was saved by Spyker (I like the name).

The Junco’s have gone north.  That means it’s spring.

The starlings are nesting in the barn, driving the cats crazy.

There is a whole new crop of stray cats.

The coming season

the first part of telling races has completed.  Eskendereya, Conveyance won interesting races.  Rachel lost, Zenyatta won.  Odysseus won when it looked impossible in the Tampa Bay Derby; Lookin’ at Lucky won when it looked impossible in the Rebel Stakes.  He nearly clipped heels on the far turn and still pulled it out.  I was impressed.  I don’t have a favorite yet.  Buddy’s Saint is out.  Dublin and Noble’s Promise got beat in the Rebel.  Noble’s Promise JUST, and Dublin got a bad ride.  Next weekend, the Florida Derby and Swale Stakes.  Lots to go after that.
