The look of sheer determination - Iditarod 2010

Photo from March 6th, 2010 at the ceremonial start in Anchorage, Alaska of the start of the Iditarod. The mushers take so the crowds in Anchorage can cheer them on, travel a handful of miles and then truck their dogs out to Wasilla where they can get going for good. Only time I ever bothered to go out to Wasilla to watch the official start was when a man I knew was running in the Iditard. But, when I lived in Anchorage almost every year I went to start the ceremonial start.

Munich Was Fascinating Movie

I watched this movie Munich the other day (off my Netflix queue). Fascinating show. I was a bit young to remember much about the events from that 1972 tragendy at the Olympics, or what came after.

I also had no idea this was a five year old movie. This is Netflix that is confusing me. They have a way of putting out "New Releases" when they buy another shipment of DVDs.
