... The 117th Boston Marathon was held under sunny skies and warm weather. Lots of people were enjoying watching the race. Then chaos ensued at the finish line when two bombs went off. Four days later more chaos ensued. In the end, after a long day of the city being in lock down, the suspect was captured and taken away.
Today there were lots of memorials to remember that day. The big library right at the finish line has a neat exhibit with all the stuff from the makeshift memorial that was set up in the days after the bombings.
Next Monday is the 118th Boston Marathon. Lots of secuity and restrictions will be in place to keep everyone safe. I hope crazy people stay far far away that day.

It looks like Catster might not be going away after all :-O :)
I guess we'll keep the new bb group for now just in case. We've tested it it out with some friends and it works pretty well. No fleas there :)
I have a new friend here on Catster :) His name is Mozart and he's an Aby, too. But the coolest thing about him is that he's also from Fairbanks Farm :) He was born way after I was and we don't have the same parents but it's neat to be friends with another Fairbanks Farm Aby :)
Mozart told me that the breeder of Fairbanks Farm passed away last year :( We haven't been in contact with the breeder in a long time so it was a shock to hear :( Mozart says that a person took the Abys and I guess is working with a rescue to find them new homes. Another person took the doggies (collies) to a big ranch in Colorado. I'm glad that the Abys and doggies were able to find a temporary new home until they find their forever homes.
We were able to find the archieved web site for Fairbanks Farm and had fun looking back at the pages, even though all of the pictures are gone now. I wish there was a way to see the pictures again. Pictures of my parents were on the web site.

The Brusselball group has a new home! Here's a sneak peek at what it looks like: http://tinyurl.com/m9lnzjs :)
We're still working out some kinks with the new home and adding neat smilies / emoticons in :)
As you can see from the sneak peek picture, the bb goup is only for playing bb in and for general playing. No community sections like health, diet, behavior, etc like the main Catster forum.
It looks like the Catster/Dogster-like Pets4Pals web site is officially open now :) Check it out!
