I've never been there, so I am a little excited. I know this is for a conference and most of my time will be taken up with that, but hopefully I'll be able to do some site-seeing an evening or two after the "work" is done.
I've never been on a trip by myself before...other than when I left home for the army so many years ago.
What will this Mom do?!
Item #1 is to sew my camera protecting insert for my purse, so I can carry my camera safely, and not need my camera bag...because you KNOW that my camera will not leave my side the whole time I am there!

I've seen some people have trouble cutting up cabbage, but with a couple simple tips, it is very easy! No special equipment needed.
In the video, I cut up a head of red cabbage - which was good because you can see the details of the cabbage - but red cabbage is much more firm in comparison to regular green cabbage. It also takes longer to soften when making coleslaw, so if you use it for that, be sure to allow more time for it to chill.

"Give me the greatness of heart to see,
The difference between duty and his love for me.
Give me the understanding so that I may know,
When duty calls him, he must go.
Give me a task to do each day,
To fill the time when he's away.
When he's in a foreign land,
Keep him safe in your loving hand."

The Cavalry has a tradition of the Yellow Garter, like the one you see above.
In the 1700-1800's the lovely ladies of Cav Troopers would wear a yellow ribbon or scarf on their arm, parasol, hat, etc. to show that they were waiting for their soldier to return from protecting the wagon trains.
