Carpe Diem -  Carpe Diem-Carpe Diem   I hope he is this years winner

It's the most exciting 2 minutes you will have in any sport.
Has that white blaze like my old horse. It's easy to spot coming
in on the last turn. I can relive that day my horse won in Florida.

  must have been scratched
* Carpe Diem-- lineage from Giant's Causeway
 *Keen Ice - Donegal Racing.. goodLuck- his lineage is from Curlin!!
Far Right
Upstart:::my second bet to win on the nose
Firing Line
American Pharoah
Unrivaled -lineage Super Saver
Made from Lucky- lineage Lookin Lucky
Jess's Dream - also from Curlin
Sure there will be a lot of scratches so we won't know who gets in till
the day of the Derby.
My favorite Jockey's
Victor ESPENOZA **

Some people bet by lineage, or Jockey, past preformance, Mud runners,
weight, Trainer, Owner with most anount of wins, it's crazy,
but ---- OH! What Fun.

That Trophy 2weighs 56 ounces of 14 Karet gold.

Bob Baffert
is  running
Carpe Diem

He is a horse to watch

For the Longines Kentucky Oaks
I pick
Condo Commander 1st- then Bird on a wire

Interesting Facts:::::
Regret is the only Fillie I know that won the Derby.
If you are 16 years old you can be a jockey in the Derby.
1970 Diane Crump was 1st woman to ride in the Derby
Willie Shoemaker was the oldest to ride in 1986 he was age 54.
Past winners of Kentucky Derby, I remember each race.
When the horses are led to the starting gate, everyone
sings My Old Kentucky Home. That started in 1928.

California Chrome 2013
Orb 2012
I'll Have Another 2011

Perfume's 1910 -2015

My favorite,
Used to wear when
I was in the chips.
My race horse,
could tell it was me
by the scent .
Joy came on the scene
about 1930's.
My sweet Daughter gave me a bottle last year. I cherish it.
Most of all I cherish her and the joy she has given these past years.

 Klimt, 1910s 
There is a movie
 coming out about KLIMT.
"Woman in Gold"

Caron's Bellodgia, my favorite cent

I can't get it anymore,
last bottle I had was 2 years ago.
Came on the scene about 1920.


not for me.!!

In 1917, Ernest Daltroff creates a fragrance

Not for me!!
rose and violet intertwined with soft lilac. 
 floral bouquet is wrapped in sandalwood and cedar, 
with an accent of earthy vetiver and iris

I can remember Shalimar
 on my Mother's Vanity.
19 40's

little history,

by Jacques Guerlain in 1925, 
as a tribute to the legendary love story
between Emperor SHAHJAHAN and his 
wife Mumtaz Mahal. 
Before he became emperor his name was
Prince Khurram. According to the legend,
twenty- year-old Prince Khurram met 
a young girl, named Arjumand Banu at the
bazaar where her family worked. Mesmerized by her beauty, after becoming emperor,
 he made her his wife as Mumtaz Mahal, meaning the "Jewel of the Palace". 

Mamma' also wore Balenciaga.

Bal a Versailles Jean Desprez 
this is what I use now. When I love
something I stick to it.

Embrassed by REED&BARTON

This one

Well, a few years back my husband
and I bought some pretty flatware in Freeport,Maine.
I put it away and was using my sterling.
Got tired of polishing it and pulled out the flat ware.
At Dinner everyone's dinner fork's broke.
Talk about embarrased.


Caveat emptor 

beware                         What the heck has happened to American companies ????
