Chocolate FAKE? Please FDA don’t approve that

June 25th, 2007 at 04:25 am » Comments (0)

One of the “joys” of waking up at ungodly hours is you get to read the newspaper – paper & web editions in peace.

Chocolate Fake!@%#$@#%!
Here is a treasure that turned up today.

Could the FDA (food & drug admin) will really allow this to happen?


In true New York Times tradition of all the news that fit to print, and sometimes even the most amuzing has a serious note…

This Op Ed piece, is certainly of major importance to the Needle Arts community,

We all know how important good chocolate and better wine are to our work.

Manufacturer’s beware, many of us choose not to eat what we cannot easily identify.

Duct tape doesn’t work in the vacuum of space..

June 13th, 2007 at 06:48 am » Comments (0)

But Apparently Stitching skills do.

So as I read this article (I am a bit of a Space News Junkie dating back to well Alan Shepherd)

I thought it would be a good follow up to the Prom story about Duct Tape

Does this mean the contest winners can’t go on to be NASA rocket scientists?



Stuck At The Prom – The Duct Tape Scholarship

May 18th, 2007 at 07:59 am » Comments (6)

The Duct Tape Scholarship for high school seniors is often an eye-popping adventure into the creative minds of today’s teens. I can’t help thinking what a great Quilt Art Challenge could come out of this, …

My 2007 vote is going to: Adrienne Beiler of Salisbury, and her date, Zach Cupler You can read a bit more about them in Daily American News Story by clicking here


I often comment that you can build a house with not much more than just Duct Tape

But I really love what the Teens keep doing with this stuff – and the idea that they are using Duct tape to help build their own futures thru the scholarship competition, well that is just frosting on the cake.



P.S. You can see both the past winners and this year’s entries, at the

When Life gives you lemons…

When the coach wants you to start drinking hot lemonade but cannot explain why it is important…
what can you do but turn to the Internet for more information on the medicinal properties of Lemons

Next thing you know, your visiting Menton Italy,reading about their annual festival,

and getting all sorts of inspiration of what ELSE you could do with Lemons (although I do love Citrus fruit and Lemons in particular)

So in honor of the upcoming (always the first full weekend in May) Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival

When Life Gives You Lemons, Make a Spinning Wheel….

We Need More Pancakes….

December 15th, 2006 at 05:53 am » Comments (0)

For all those I am Holding In My Heart

~ Making Pancakes ~

Six -year-old Brandon decided one Saturday morning to fix his parents pancakes He found a big bowl and spoon, pulled a chair to the counter, opened the cupboard and pulled out the heavy flour canister, spilling it on the floor.

He scooped some of the flour into the bowl with his hands, mixed in most of a cup of milk and added some sugar, leaving a floury trail on the floor which by now had a few tracks left by his kitten.

Brandon was covered with flour and getting frustrated. He wanted this to be something very good for Mom and Dad, but it was getting very bad.

He didn’t know what to do next, whether to put it all into the oven or on the stove and he didn’t know how the stove worked! Suddenly he saw his kitten licking from the bowl of mix and reached to push her away, knocking the egg carton to the floor. Frantically he tried to clean up this monumental mess but slipped on the eggs, getting his pajamas white and sticky.

And just then he saw Dad standing at the door. Big crocodile tears welled up in Brandon ‘s eyes. All he’d wanted to do was something good, but he’d made a terrible mess. He was sure a scolding was coming, maybe even a spanking.

But his father just watched him.

Then, walking through the mess, he picked up his crying son, hugged him and loved him, getting his own pajamas white and sticky in the process!

That’s how God deals with us..

We try to do something good in life, but it turns into a mess. Our marriage gets all sticky, or
we insult a friend, or we can’t stand our job, or our health goes sour.

Sometimes we just stand there in tears because we can’t think of anything else to do. That’s when God picks us up and loves us and forgives us, even though some of our mess gets all over Him.

But just because we might mess up, we can’t stop trying to “make pancakes” for God or for others. Sooner or later we’ll get it right, and then they’ll be glad we tried…

I was thinking and I wondered if I had any wounds needing to be healed, friendships that need rekindling, or three words needing to be said, sometimes, “I love you” can heal and bless!

Remind every one of your friends and family that you love them.

Even if you think they don’t love you back, you would be amazed at what those three little words, a smile, and a reminder like this can do.

Just in case I haven’t told you lately…

” I LOVE YA! ”
Please pass some of this love on to others….suppose one morning you were called to God; do all your friends and family know you love them?

Send this to everyone you love, and send it back to the person who sent it to you.. And never stop
