Zenyatta in A Winter Wonder Land

Here is a very lovely film for Christmas.  Click here to view the full aspect video at YouTube (and see other nice Bloodhorse videos.) Almost everyone's favorite thoroughbred mare enjoys a snowy turnout her retirement at Lands End Farm on December 20, 2010.   She is very well behaved and affectionate and certainly very beloved.    I wish Goldikova was getting as much attention too! Three time Breeders Cup Mile Winner!!   But enjoy this happy winter scene and keep the music at a low volume, it's lovelier that way.

Spam-Ku and the "Mysterious Porcine Muse"

Who would have though that the canned mystery meat would spawn so much  verse
Because it's so easy!  

Uniform pink meat
Salty and gelatinous
What did it come from?

 + + + + + +
Odd and ends of ham
Collected by the packer
Too damned expensive!

+ + + + + +

Spam fried in hot bacon fat
Pumpernickel and mustard
Served with a pickle!
