Although it may seem like we're talk "pennies", penny breakage has a huge impact on horse racing and we could do so. much. better. Explained really well her by Economics Professor Marshall Gramm--whose primary focus is literally gambling and betting markets. https://t.co/Fia0MgcMZl

God I love the Saratoga Special! 18 years now of the SS publication. Not sure why it feels like I've been reading it for 30 years... perhaps because their writers know the game so well? Or because I just feel old??? https://t.co/a2jYzyEuBm

Hot yoga in the summer? Absolutely! I think I actually appreciate it more in the summer because if you can workout for 75-90 minutes in a 105 degree room with 100% humidity, you can definitely handle a 90 degree summer day with 80% humidity 😉....

OMG, so good! Pan seared Cod (wild caught, sustainable) with Lemon and Capers, Turmeric Lime Cauliflower “Rice”, and Oven Roasted (fresh, organic) Asparagus. Love having the time and space to cook a delicious and nutritious meal. ❤️
