Lego City Auto Transporter

This set was too easy. You have to do the same set of instructions three times in order to build it. However, given that it is geared for 5 years to 12 years old then maybe it's just right for the target market.

Grand Prix Lego Truck

I still haven't decided where I should share my Lego projects. Last night I was bored and put together this set that my husband bought for me on Amazon. It was the Grand Prix Truck Lego City Set 60025.

UMass Lego Projects - Library Tower

I'm not sure when this was made or who made it, but today was the first chance I had to get some close-up photos of it. Complete with a falcon on the roof.

UMass Lego Projects- Old Chapel

I have no idea who made these or when, but there are 2 Lego projects currently in the W.E.B. DuBois Library. I had seen the library tower one before, but today was the first time I had seen the Lego of the Old Chapel. I did find photos of both projects in the Homecoming Parade which happened over last weekend. That may explain why they were on the third floor of the library today.

Soundtrack of our Marriage - a quick poem

This is too long to fit into a tweet on Twitter so I will just post it here.

Soundtrack of our Marriage- a Quick Poem

If we made the soundtrack of our marriage, what would it be?
I think it would have to start with the Monkees.
There would be some Elvis and Johnny Cash
Depeche Mode, Weird Al, and lots of 80s.
It wouldn’t be complete without the Wiggles and Sesame Street.

Gala of the Royal Horses (in other words...something completely different)

Last night I had the opportunity to take my daughter to the Gala of the Royal Horses at the Mullins Center at UMass. Neither of us had ever seen the show before and my daughter was really impressed.

It's not easy to get photos of moving animals and I didn't want to use my flash a lot, although I did occasionally. For better photos and more news you should check out their official website at
