It's being reported that the iconic Notre Dame Rose Windows have survived the horrific fire that destroyed much of the cathedral yesterday!! Seeing those windows is high on my lifetime bucket list and yesterday I thought it would never happen, but looks like the glass gods were kind. It's a big blessing in an otherwise tragic loss of art!

I was fortunate to be at Notre Dame in 2017. Climbed up the tower whilst there, big effort but worth it. Let's hope when the final assessment is in this building can be repaired. :ugeek:

Thankful to finally if not unceremoniously be let go from my toxic work environment I suffered in the last 2 years. Of course now I'm unemployed (for the 2nd time in 3 years) with specialized skills that are useful really only in a quickly shrinking industry. I thought life (especially work life) was supposed to get better as you got older not the opposite :|
I'm so sorry, DM, it's brutal when that happens!! I'm glad you're getting out of that place, but I know how freaky it is not to know what's coming next. My fingers are crossed hard for a quick and fruitful job search!! :crossed :crossed :crossed

That the President's Trophy winner, and tied for the most wins in a season, much ballyhooed Tampa Bay Lightning might lose in the opening round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. LET'S GO AVS!!!

After just completing the second of two cataract surgeries, I can now see without thick glasses for the first time since I was 5. I keep reaching up to feel my face and make sure really they're not on, it truly seems like an unbelievable joyous miracle!! I can't wait until the next time I go swimming when I'll be able to look up and actually see what's around me! :jumpclap :jumpclap :jumpclap

I'm thankful my high school age daughter is on a field trip today rather than sitting in a classroom wondering if someone is going to come in and shoot the place up.
