Trouble with Trebles

This blog is to keep track of my knitting, other craft projects, and the weird bits of life that don't fit anywhere else.

Zen Askew

This morning when I got into my office I noticed that my Mini Zen Garden had been trashed. No doubt it was shoved aside as I scrambled to finish grading exams or papers, or complete a journal article review (I reviewed no less than 3 articles this past semester and am currently working on a 4th!). I think that probably sums up this past semester quite nicely: Zen askew. I have now fixed the Zen Garden and hope that that bodes well for the upcoming semester.

On the knitting front, I still need to take photos of some of my actual FOs from the past few months. I completed 2 dishcloths and a cute summer top for RJ (a Katja in a lovely silk/cotton blend). I feel like I also started a million different projects and really haven't made much progress on them: a crocheted shawl for my niece, another Anouk for RJ, glittens for my brother, socks for RJ, another dishcloth, a baby sweater for a friend, and probably one or two other projects I am forgetting. I guess startitus really kicked in and kept hoping I would get time to work on them. Well, until I remember to take some photos, here is a picture of RJ in a handknit sweater from a couple weeks ago at Downtown Disney. No, I didn't knit it myself, but it sure is cute, isn't it?

Welcome Back! I knew about furloughs and heavy workloads for professors in California universities, so I was pretty sure that was the reason for your absence. My community college job hasn't been too affected yet, but I can see it coming. I'm with you about not letting it get too crazy this semester.

RJ just gets cuter and cuter.

Well, with all those WIPs, you have a lot of things to just grab and work on when you get a few minutes.

Cute sweater on RJ! Did your mom knit it?

a) she's so cute!
b) whoever knit it, that is a really, really nice sweater
c) I have a mini zen garden too! But mine is smaller...only about 2" x 3", one of those little book/kit things they sell at a local big chain bookstore.

Everything about horse betting

Despite all the cries of gloom and doom that have been ongoing since the unfortunate decision in the fifties to reject television's offer to broadcast horse racing nationally, the sport has continued to grow. Second only to baseball in overall popularity, horse racing enjoyed 11 straight years of increasing handle (total amount of pooled wagers) before this bemoaned 0.5% decrease. According to Mr. Finley, "an ominous sign of things to come."
[url=http://www.pulsebet.com]bet on the derby[/url]
Another sad fact is that more than 400 in-racing horses die every year in the UK alone. They may die on the course itself, from injuries received in training or be killed by their owners - considered no longer commercially viable.


What makes this event so difficult to win? Several factors have to be considered. First there's the age of the horses. Triple Crown races are limited to 3 year olds, juveniles, all of whom officially have their birthday on January 1st of each year. By the first Saturday in May (the running of the Kentucky Derby), though most of the contestants will have actually reached their third birthday, they won't realize their full growth and potential until their fourth or fifth years.

[url=http://www.pulsebet.com]bet on the derby[/url]
On paper, Barbaro is the horse to beat, and after his decisive win at the Kentucky Derby, he appears capable of beating all comers. But this is horse racing and no matter how it looks on paper we still have to run the race.

Everything about horse betting

So what is wrong with horse racing? Well, for lack of a better answer... horse racing. By that we mean the tradition mired establishment of horse racing where "because we've always done it that way" seems to be the golden rule.
[url=http://www.pulsebet.com]bet on the derby[/url]
In a sport that is not only highly competitive but relies on high-stakes gambling to sustain itself, some people feel it is unlikely that a practice shown to be a disadvantage would continue. However, such cruelties exist and many countries are taking strong steps to stop it. Like in India for example, it is banned, that is until the jockey has proven himself.


Another significant aspect is the shortness of time between races. Most stakes graded horses of today run with 30 to 60 days off between races, but Triple Crown contenders must run 3 grueling races within the span of 35 days. Notably Sir Barton, the first Triple Crown winner, won the Preakness only 4 days after winning the Kentucky Derby while today's challengers do have 14 days between the two races.

[url=http://www.pulsebet.com]horce racing charts[/url]
Sweetnorthernsaint ridden by Kent Desormeaux was favored to win the Derby, but finished a disappointing seventh by 13 lengths. That though, after a bumped start and being steadied before finally tiring. With a lifetime 3 wins out of 7 starts, all 3 have come this year, and the shorter distance of the Preakness might be more to his liking.

That just about wraps it up. My collection of the very best centre forwards to kick a ball for Manchester Utd before Ferguson's days. Are you wondering why I decided to only include pre-Ferguson players in this list? Actually it's simply because I feel the forwards that have been at Utd during Alex Ferguson's lengthy leadership in charge of United require a write up all to themselves. Sir Alex Ferguson hasn't been short of forwards to chose from. There is a good chance this wont be my last word on the issue. A piece on the strikers who played for Alex may be on the cards. [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]arsenal football[/url] Manchester United and Manchester City are only two of the city’s local football teams. Recent estimates indicate that Greater Manchester has the most number of football clubs per capita anywhere in the world. Among the other professional football teams in Greater Manchester are Oldham Athletic, Stockport County, Bury, Wigan Athletic, Rochdale and Bolton Wanderers. [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]michael carrick[/url] Manchester United Football Club is an English football club that plays in the Premier League. The Red Devils as they are commonly known have more than 300 million world-wide supporters. Meaning that out of every 20 people on earth, one of them will be a Manchester United Fan! Currently managed by Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United are one of the most successful teams in the history of English football having won 21 major titles since he became manager in 1986. During its remarkable history, many distinguished players have run out in the famous Manchester United shirt which can trace its origins back when Manchester United were known as Newton Heath Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Football Club.
