A Special Dedication to my sister-AC & brother-in-law-FM



This is the "kids" version" This is my favorite, yours?

Wishing I could be there to celebrate & sing this song for them, how I feel about Alyzabeth An!!





The Adult version.

Linda Ronstadt
Somewhere Out There lyrics
Complimentary "Somewhere Out There" ringtone
Somewhere out there
Beneath the pale moonlight
Someones thinking of me
And loving me tonight

Somewhere out there
Someones saying a prayer
That we'll find one another
In that big somewhere out there

And even though I know
How very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing
On the same bright star

And when the night wind
Starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping
Underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there
If love can see us through
Then we'll be together
Somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true

And even though I know
How very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing
on the same bright star

And when the night wind
Starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping
Underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there
If love can see us through
Then we'll be together
Somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true........


All my CONGRATULATIONS, Patience, Strenght, LOVE, as you prepare for your journey to China!!

25-year-old Ed Muge was the winner in the men's division, with a time of 27:52. 41-year-old Edith Musai was the top women's finisher with a time of 31:55.

For the men, Maregu Zewdie of Ethiopia took second place at 27:53 and third place went to Kiplimo Kimutai of Kenya at 27:58.

Liudmila Bikasheva of New York placed second among women with a time of 32:03 and third place went to Yuri Kano of Japan with a time of 32:16.

Ben True of North Yarmouth finished the race in just over 31 minutes. The first Maine woman to place was Kristin Berry of Scarborough with a time of 34:30. Berry's time of 34:30 set a new record for female runners from Maine.

In the wheelchair divisions, Patrick Doak of Concord, MA won for the third time and Jackie Lupenowski had the top time for women.

The race attracts runners from far and wide -- this year's entrants came from 44 states and 14 countries. For many of the runners, the goal is simply to finish. This year's field included three guys dressed in Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles costumes, were passing a pizza box back and forth. They occasionally handed a slice to a spectator along the race route. All three finished the race in under 38 minutes (click on the 35:0-40:00 Finish Line clip to see for yourself)

As always, runners found support all along the course, which starts near Crescent Beach State Park and ends near the Portland Head Light at Fort Williams.

The Beach to Beacon was started 11 years ago by Olympic gold medalist Joan Benoit Samuelson, who could be seen running along Route 77 early Saturday morning.
