From my notebook:

  • The Preakness is a long held tradition at Pimlico. The year was 1870 when Pimlico opened. The area wanted a Stakes race to call their own, so in 1873 plans began. Then in 1875 the first Preakness Stakes was ran! And the rest is Maryland history. (Fits The Wire)
  • For some, the tradition of Preakness is to go to the InfieldFest! This is a party like no other! Music, food, maybe some alcoholic beverages (probably not! LOL) and some horses running in circles makes for a great day! (preaching)
  • Miracles do happen! A kitty named Ritz escaped his home in Annapolis more than 16 years ago. His owners looked all over and even put up posters, but to no avail. When out of the blue, they received a call that a cat was brought into the vets and was scanned for a microchip. Ritz had been found! (CBS News)
  • Sadly, not everyone considers a pet to be part of the family. BUT, I dare say, that is changing and animals are not only part of the family, they are “furry kids” to a lot of people…myself included. Just like everything we love, we want to keep it safe and free from harm. Having your pet microchipped is an easy, painless way of keeping a pet safe if they happen to get lost. (Human Society)
