Super Bowl predilection. Vikings beat Pats in Minnesota.

Pivot Points

Time to speed up Game of Thrones. SNL had it right. Yawn. Fell asleep. C’mon. Dragons! Action! Please. Can’t follow plot from Season One.

Mother’s Day spent with Icelandic glaciers and geysers. Breaded pigs ears in Reykjavik. Vicariously texting with mAdBen. Fun!
