36 USC § 116

“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse. A man who has nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance at being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.”
― John Stuart Mill

Despite her not wanting me to record & share it, I thought ‘teh intarwebs’ might enjoy this 30s video of Gabriella doing yoga, which is apparently a thing now.

The New Member of Our Family

Introducing Just O. Pig.
(The O stands for “Only”. Gabriella’s naming convention isn’t very creative)

Actually, he responds just as well to Mr. Pig, Wilbur, and Fuzzy
