They Are More Powerful Now

I waited until today to do my celebrity death update so I could use that line for the title. For those of you too young to understand any Star Wars references or why I am putting that today … then I find your lack of trivia disturbing. Anyhoo, I also just had a pretty stressful couple of weeks (which I will explain in a later post) so I just didn’t feel like getting on the computer and typing this much until today.  It can be argued that this month there were an inordinate number of trifectas as there were a couple of groupings. My clairvoyance didn’t let me see this coming. I really need to revisit my sad devotion to an ancient religion.  Speaking of trifectas, it seems there were an awful lot of thoroughbreds that kicked this month as well. I am not going to list them all.
