99 New: Friday Round-Up in 5 Sentences

There is new meaning to the term elevator speech tonight thanks to a couple of courageous women who stood in the way – of a lot of things it seems.

Dr. Ford seems to have taken to heart Maggie Kuhn’s instruction to “Stand before the people you fear and speak your mind – even if your voice shakes.”

It is possible to put together 120 hot meals for homeless people in your kitchen even if the roast beef, packaged in nice thin slices, is frozen solid when you start at 2:00 and you must be finished by 5:00 but it’s not something I would recommend.

Today, our vet sent a sympathy card about our dog who was put down on Tuesday and in the envelope was a small square with our dog’s paw print.

If you take your 12-year old granddaughter to the symphony on a Friday night, there is a chance she will fall asleep once the lights go down but also a chance she’ll wake up at intermission and look happy to be there but doze off again during Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 12 which, listening to it tonight, strikes me as almost impossible to sleep through but she is 12 and growing and I’m not.
