Okay, I was out shopping at Bed, Bath & Beyond last weekend and noticed that the phrase “Live, Love, Laugh” is all OVER the place: picture frames, wall art, napkins.

Last Saturday, Dan and I went to the Seawall Arts Festival in downtown Portsmouth. It’s an annual event that draws artists from several states, held on Portsmouth’s main downtown drag, High Street.

Sunday was a beautiful, sunny day, not too hot, with a nice breeze.
Portsmouth’s LaShawn Merritt won a gold medal in the men’s 400-meter race at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing yesterday. Dan taught him in two classes – Earth Science and Experimental Design – when he was a student at Woodrow Wilson High School.
Way to go, LaShawn! We’re proud of you!
ETA: And today, Aug. 23, LaShawn added another gold medal to his collection, winning the 1,600-meter relay, along with the rest of the men’s team. Congratulations to you all!
