Who knows what you'll find searching around the internet? I found these!
But I wasn't looking for them.

I'd heard that the newest Peet's was nice (it had previously been a Burger King). So I rode my bike over there once I got out of very frustrating meeting with well-meaning city officials. The Peets was very nice. But the nicest part was this photo... This gentleman, Sealli was crocheting, like a mad man with a grin as wide as his crochet needles! Before I went and got my iced tea and a ginger cookie, I noticed that there were A's hats, and beanies, and then I saw the colors....blue, white, and gold! Woiryers! That the way grandson, Cadel, says it! Yes, he was working on a cap! I wondered if he would make one for C? Yep! He would be happy to do so! I told him I had an appointment, and asked how long would he be there. He said at least another hour. That sealed the deal. I told him I'd be back within that time, and gave him my card.

Live richly.... that's the only choice that we've got! marilyn

The things that went wrong….I know I need to learn from them…then fahget about ‘em! What the biggest personal accomplishment you've had this year? Thinking I must do everything just right. I have started to learn to lean on and leave it to God. S(He) can let me know what I need to do, when I need to do it, and I can be completely satisfied, or, if not, do it again, without the dribble in my head. What's the coolest thing you've seen this year? Sutter..I've seen her work at the (volunteer only) TED Talks in Christchurch, NZ. She's worked her way up to the #2 position...and folks have taken notice. She just started a new job with a huge pay increase because folks have noticed she is a (nice) boss woman. She was born to boss (in a nice way) people around. Where wa
