In My Own Words:
A turtle crossing a road to get to a grassy embankment by the river gave me an opportunity to pause and reflect on how I might better face the difficult challenges in my own life. I almost hit the creature but slowed down by easing off the accelerator of my car. I swerved slightly and drove around the turtle. Resuming speed, I glanced into my rear view mirror. The cars behind me also ad… Read more

The Language of Soul by Harold Klemp
The Language of Soul by Harold Klemp
Sustaining words to live by are on every page of this compact little book of life. It includes brief passages relating to harmony, truth, health, daily life, creativity, self-discipline, love, relationships, family, spiritual growth, enlightenment, and solving problems. One of the many encouraging passages in this book is: - "When you ask for help, Spirit begins to bring changes that are for your good. Of course, this means you must be extra careful in the choices you make. Before Spirit can make any changes, you must develop a better image of yourself. You are Soul. God's love is for you." Simplistic and beautiful. Vibrant phrases which resonate within - - and… Read more
Bringing Down the House (Full Screen) (Bilingual) <b>DVD</b> ~ Steve Martin
5.0 out of 5 stars COMEDY AT ITS BEST!, Feb. 18 2004
Queen Latifah almost steals this film from Steve Martin, Eugene Levy (Best in Show & A Mighty Wind) and Betty White ( Golden Girls). Queen Latifah is wrongly accused of a crime. Steve Martin is the reluctant lawyer she chooses to help prove her innocence. And so the fun begins. Be prepared to laugh so hard you will cry as they poke fun at sterotypes, repair "Steve's" broken marriage, solve his children's problems, challenge a stuffy law firm and "mellow out" a prim multi-millionaire client. It's all done in rollicking good humor. This is a fun film. Queen Latifah is one talented lady. Joan Plowright is superb. Look for the scene where Joan, an uninvited guest, sings at the… Read more
Major Taylor, Champion Cyclist by Lesa Cline-Ransome
Major Taylor, Champion Cyclist by Lesa Cline-Ransome
5.0 out of 5 stars A TALENTED COMPETITOR, Feb. 14 2004
Lance Armstrong dominates today's Grand Prix cycle races, but Marshall Taylor dominated the late 1800's. This beautifully illustrated book shares the life of this extraordinary African-American athlete fondly acknowledged as "Major." He became a World Champion in 1899 because of his proficiency with a bike. His competitive spirit and courage paved the way for those other fearless African-American Athletes, Jack Johnson, Jesse Owens, Josh Gibson, Satchel Paige and Jackie Robinson who would follow and excel, in their time, in other sports. This is an excellent read. Highly recommended.
