The Tell Me a Story Women of Wonder CD is wonderful for all children and adults alike. Homeschooling can get great use out of them as well. Exposing children to stories from other countries besides their own can open discussions to wonderment about what those other countries are like.
If you would love to purchase the wonderful Tell Me A Story Women of Wonder CD you can purchase this at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/friedmanhall3
Rustle, bustle the leaves are falling
Just around the bend winter is calling
But before that it's time for fall
It's a time when leaves change, on every tree small or tall
There is color on every tree
There is color as far as the eye can see
Some places there is color scattered here and there
Some places there is color scattered everywhere
There is color far and wide
There's no place to go fall cant hide
But the fall colors won't last
Because winters almost here and coming fast

- Enjoyed my granddaughters first birthday party she sure did have fun as well. We had a pretty princess birthday party for her and we all had a great time.
- Finding out the my son is in the top 25 of his graduating class in fact he is #25. This is great as he has just announced he will be going to school to be a youth minister. So proud of this boy

The blog An Island Life host a weekly meme Aloha Friday In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.
Recently on the news I heard a story about a mother who was ill and went to the doctor only to find out that she had just a short period of time to live. This is not the first case that I have heard this and have actually known a few different people faced with this fate. One just laid around and moped and the other did all sorts of things that she never took the time or money to do before.
My question today is:
if you have just a short period of time to live what would you do with your time?

1 medium cabbage
Ensure cut of pork is about four inches by four inches by four or five inches.
It does not have to have been salted first, but if you want to approximate the taste of the real Irish thing, put it down in brine for a day or two, then (when ready to cook it) bring to a boil first, boil about 10 minutes, change the water, and start the recipe from the following point. .
Place the joint in a pot, cover with cold water and bring to the boil, Remove the scum that floats to the surface.
Cover and simmer for 1 1/2 hours (or 30 minutes per pound).
Cut cabbage into quarters and add to pot.
Cook gently for about 1/2 hour, or until cabbage is cooked to your liking. (Test constantly: don't overdo it!)
Drain, and serve with potatoes boiled in their jackets, and a sharp sauce -- mustard or HP sauce.

This week I am thankful that my son has a leader in his life and that because of this leader he is becoming a leader himself. Yesterday afternoon in front of 60+ peers my son stood up and shared his testimony. Praise God!!!! This is the young man who at 7 years old was not talking well and was told he may never learn to read or write. God knew better and my son is being used as insturment of the Lord and through him is witnessing to others.
My heart was delighted as I was able to see my granddaughter Princess this week. We had such a great visit. I love it when she says Nana I love you. I love her with all my heart. I bought her a purse that she knew how to place it on her shoulder and carry it around. Her mom does not carry a purse but her Nana does and she wanted to be like nana. Makes my heart feel good to know that God provided a little bundle like Princess for this family to love.

I love the fact that the Big Universe allows members to create books as well. Your book can be read by others as well. How fun it would be to create a book and share it on the Internet. This would be a fun home school project as well. Teachers, parents, children and authors can all enjoy the website Big Universe. One could read books, create books or share with others. With all this available who would not want to visit Big Universe.
Big universe originated because of the fact that while we live in a big universe the creator wanted to use children's books online to connect the next generation. Perhaps this could help individuals to look past the differences between our various cultures and instead focus on our similarities so that we may all come together to explore the big universe we all share.

One topic of conversation that nearly always takes place in secret and behind closed doors is the subject of sex. Of course you may discuss this subject with your closest friend but often the main way of learning about the subject of sex is through experiences. I believe that sexual experiences should only be invested between a married couple man and woman. Often many questions arise and these questions can be hard to discuss or even bring up. Wouldn't it be great if there was a book that helped you gain knowledge about those sexual questions you may have. Well Eden Fantasy's carries such books. Opening the door to a conversation that may never be brought out in the open is now available in many different books that Eden Fantasy's has available on their website.
The Little (bit naughty) Book of Sex is one of these books. This book available at Eden Fantasy's is the just the right pocket or purse size book. This book can be shared with your lover and allows you to discuss sex with more of a freer conversation flow. This no holds barred little hand book may just guide you and your spouse into a life of great sex. If the light seems to have gone out a bit, if the spice seems to have faded away this little guide book from Eden Fantasy's may be all that you need. Offering not only advice but pictures as well the little book may be exactly what your relationship needs. The goal of this little book of sex is to maximize pleasure of sex for both players from the start to the end. Issues that are not commonly discussed such as sex toys, fantasies and games are also discussed in this book.
Would you love to win a copy of this book The Little (bit naughty) Book of Sex? Well Drew at Eden Fantasy's would love to give one of Annies Home the chance to own their own book.
