"Welcome," Betsy called down from the porch, "to the year 1890." And that's when it hit me. Those women who work at the historic field trip places? Betsy wasn't one of them. These weren't costumes she and Ron were wearing. Their clothes were for real. And in about five minutes, all of this would be real for me to.

Oh yes, I am! I'm not sure when my need for a football fix edged out my love for baseball, but it happened. Mind you, I'd love nothing more than to be at the Royal's game today and the Chiefs's game tonight. What a kick, that would be!

It’s happened to all of us at one time or another, readers and non-readers alike. Someone, a friend, a sibling, a parent, a co-worker – SOMEONE comes and tells you that there is a book that ‘you have to read!’ Sometimes you put it off – you try to delay as long as you can – there are so many other things to do. Errands to run, places to go, people to see, (I tend to have too many OTHER things to read) but sooner or later, it catches up with you, and you find yourself curled up with that book everyone’s been talking about.
I placed holds on all of these really great books I want to read by my favorite authors. Some of them, I can only keep for 14 days. I’ll never read all 8 in 28 days, and I know I won’t be able to renew most of them because they are so popular and will be on a waiting list for other people.
Would you like to learn about food garnishing and presentation? Can the way food is arranged actually affect the flavor of the food? Bill Phillips, Culinary Institute of America Chef/Instructor says, “Indeed it can.” He also emphasizes that from a psychological point of view, presentation clearly affects one’s perception of flavor. He teaches a system of guidelines called BUFF. B is for balance. U is for unity. F is for focal point. F is for flow.
Dear, sweet, intelligent, articulate, very happy, Internet savvy, English speaking, domestic Bird had fallen hopelessly in love with charming and versatile Charlie Too. Bird emailed the handsome Palm Cockatoo in New Guinea. But he could not read English.
When no reply to her email was received, Bird, rejected and despondent, no longer rejoiced in speaking her favorite English phrases such as “Hi, there”, “Bye-bye”, “Why are you doing that?”, “Oh, no”, “Don’t go there”, and “Uh-huh”.
