Best wishes for their marriage last Saturday, August 21, 2010, go to Sara Guerra & Ross Elliott. A wedding — a wonderful finish to the summer . . .
A warm welcome goes out to Joseph Bravo, new director for the International Museum of Art & Science. McAllen and the Rio Grande Valley are glad to have you . . .
Saw Connie & Richard Walsh when they were dining at Marcello’s in Port Isabel, and we were all enjoying the last of the summer vacation. We agreed that grandchildren are great!
In a brief fishing report, Jerry Greenfield and my spouse caught six different varieties of fish, returning one beautiful, unidentified fish. Yes, the fish was alive and happy to be swimming away. A photo is available for computer verification. To my untrained eye, it looked like a great big angelfish . . .
Saw Pat Moyer when I was out dog walking in the neighborhood, and we caught up on coming and goings — who’s moving in and who’s moving out!
Speaking of my adorable longhaired Chihuahua, I can now recommend Island Breeze Pet Grooming, just in case you find yourself and your canine friend at the island, way in need of a trim and comb out! Your pooch will be given good care by either owners Valerie & Melody Cortez, or professional groomer Ivonne Escamilla . . .
Last week the International Museum of Art & Science welcomed Mexican-born artist Alejandro Benassini and his exhibit “Inside Silence” to the museum, where the intriguing installation will be showing through November 14th . . .
Thank you to Angela Maxwell of IMAS for some help with museum details, and thank you to Janet Wallace for good cheer and her usual encouragement . . .
Now that school is starting again, I noticed that Chris Ardis had the title “Grades are Earned” on an e-mail. All former and current teachers have no trouble remembering that grades are earned by students, not “given” by teachers — and we hope that students and parents remember . . .
Free August movie opinion: Eat Pray Love seemed very looong to me, in spite of Julia Robert’s cuteness, Javier Bardem’s hunkiness, the Italian pasta, and the gorgeous Bali scenery. Though I compliment Julia’s ability to eat pasta and still look cute, I kept wanting her to hurry up and find herself already . . .
Here are the promised results of the low-fat key lime pie recipe — it turned out to be great! This pie had the best consistency, for once my crumb crust held together, and it had only 9 grams of fat as compared to 22 in the traditional key lime pie. See page 4 of the August/September issue of Cook’s Country magazine . . .
Happy birthday wishes for yesterday are sent to Veronica Cantu, Tracy Crain, and Pam Havens . . .
For today, birthday cheer goes out to Gen Long, Luis Lozano, Gloria Lowe, and Bailey Gurwitz; and happy birthday for tomorrow to Phyllis Griggs and Sarah M. Alvarez . . .
