And here it is…a new love in my life. The molecular dog. I think it is so cute!
My lovely daughter and I were visiting this other side of town, new to me, and found a full array of very interesting shops, restaurants, a lovely park and a community center. Went into the restaurant, which we figure is the meeting place for the real locals, had a delicious lunch. The other side of town is really for the tourists, which we shall call the main drag, and for me and other locals when we want to play tourists.
After our lunch, we walked around the area, and visited a shop, and got two foo dogs. Foo dogs are ancient sacred dogs of Asia who guard Buddhist Temples. They protect you against bad energy. Need all the dogs we can get. Then, continued with our curiosity for this area and went into the park. There was a sculpture that from far away looked like the infamous mouse. Then started to look like a doggie, and by the time I took a few pictures, we found a description of what this sculpture really is. It is a molecular dog!
Click on it to make it larger and see the actual description of the sculpture. In case you don’t feel like clicking, here’s the information. It is a molecule of propane! Propane is a three-carbon molecule that is commonly known as liquified petroleum gas.
We had a wonderful afternoon and learned some chemistry and how beautiful it can be.
So…it was today…24 October…a day to remember a wonderful last Saturday, October 22nd.
Your Happy Contessa

I love exploring new neighborhoods – you’re inspiring me to check one out in my area soon. I explored alot of different parts of Montreal this weekend and spoke alot of broken/bad French – you’ll have to give me some refresher lessons.
Glad you had a nice birthday! Did you know you share a birthday with Kim Kardashian?
I am sure you did just fine in Montreal with your special French. I am getting motivated also to continue exploring new neighborhoods, specially the ones that are very diverse. Who is Kim Kardashian? Just kidding! I feel sorry for that girl. So much manure and stress in her life. Thanks for keeping up with my adventures. Best wishes,
Your favorite neighborhood! The park that is shady :)!
My new favorite park, Shady Park. It was lovely!
