    Going to freeze my bum off at the NIU-Ball State game tonight.  

    What tunnels are there in your area? Does it bother you driving through them? What is the longest tunnel you've gone through?
    Have you been to the Vietnam Memorial? How did it affect you? What is your favorite memorial in D.C.?
    Did they celebrate Sadie Hawkins Day in school where you are from? Did you participate?
    Have you ever had Indian Pudding (I'm thinking of attempting it)? If so, how was it?
    Don't have many answers today, though the most interesting tunnels I went through were on the high-speed train between Copenhagen & Stockholm, because when you entered them you felt the air pressure spike big time.  Seeing the Vietnam Memorial struck me for the needless tragedy that is war.  I think they did the Sadie Hawkins thing, but I did not participate.  I never heard of Indian Pudding before, but might try it now.

    Overall, just sad because today is the ten-year anniversary of my mother's death.  I was in flight to see her one last time when she passed away.  This is her Memorial Garden in back of our house, with irises from a bulb I smuggled back from her garden in England:
