Lois, last night I heard a interview with the reporter who wrote the book. He talked so passionately about his relationship with the homeless two stringer violin player and how he helped the man get back a bit of his life. He said the violin payer calls him almost every morning to see how he is. I related to all the reporter was saying about the difficulty of helping some of the homeless along. I worked with 15 mentally ill homeless for a year, besides the volunteer work i did for four years in Gainesville. Thanks for the tip, I'll try and get to see the movie. Sh'mal
Hi, Thanks for sharing your poem with me. I always enjoy others creative works. Creativity is a wonderful gift from God! I haven't been on here in a long time as I have other things going on in my life at the moment plus two recitals!
Hi, I just now read your poem and I love it! I used to write some poetry but haven't tried any lately . My sister is the poet and she is a published poet. You should try that. I'm sure you could be published. I just had the boys lessons today and we had fun as usual. Blessings.
Hi Lois, Yes she did and I thought I had written back to you to let you know that. I do enjoy teaching the boys very much and I'm enjoying myself on here, Facebook and MySpace. I hope life is treating you well these days.
Hi Lois, I see we're in the same city. I'm in NW houston. Where are you? I enjoyed your sonnet very much. My sister is a poet and artist. I am a piano teacher and love listening to guitar music as well. I would love to hear more of your interest in mind-body-spirit. I also would like to invite you to join my new group, Environmental Zoo where you can express your concerns, solutions, ideas or anything else you'd like to. I also have a discussion going on environmental issues. See you there?
Well, Lois, your son is quite a organizer, jumped right in on getting the Zoobird site going and has had a lot of takers quickly. I hope he does well in the garden, the space he and another took over provided me with most of my vegetables the past few years. Now in Seattle where they have many community gardens, but waiting lists of up to two years for plots, so will rely on my own organizing skills to try and find a new space for a community garden. Hope all is well in Houston. Sh'mal
"The noticeably bitter taste of turnip greens has been linked by researchers to its calcium content. On an ounce-for-ounce basis, turnip greens contain about 4 times more calcium than a much less bitter-tasting cruciferous vegetables like cabbage."
Have you always wanted to make your own bread? Well, here's a little article about making rye bread with a bread machine. This bread machine came from a thrift store and only cost $11.99! The ingredients to make Russian Rye were so simple you won't believe how easy it was. Enjoy!
