I know it’s not the best rated movie – but if you like a bit of sarcasm and tongue-in-cheek then Lake Placid is a very funny movie. In a month of academy award movies on the telly this is a bit of a break in the action.
A good friend of mine – and a great landscape photographer – has volunteered to go to Cuba to teach some English classes. She is looking for some items, listed below, to take and leave with the children. Also listed are some links to read about the trip and her photos from the trip, to come after she returns.
Here are the literacy supplies that are needed:
Dry erase markers in dark colors
Dry erase erasers
Flashcards for Advanced English students (ie, SAT vocabulary prep)
English to Spanish dictionaries
Notebooks with lined paper
Markers, crayons, colored pencils
Children’s picture books
Last week was fun running from Roscoe Village Apple Butter festival to Circleville Pumpkin Show and in the evenings attending my first HighBall. At the end of each evening after running up and down High street finished and home bound I passed 2 completely different worlds from what was running the streets. A reverse zoo sort of thing with people in restaurants watching the crazies passing by and then inside the bars a whole other party cranked up from a Frat/sorority mixer at Granero Lounge to the HighBall moving inside at the Union Cafe.
So depending on who you think is upscale or not and where to go for the ‘most’ fun, well that’s something fun for you to find out. But for me… well let the pictures speak… first Friday then Saturday.
Shalom aleichem and L’shanah tovah
Today is the start of the Jewish new year, Rosh Hashanah, and I had a chance to attend a service tonight with a good friend. A great sermon which I will post here later spoke of new beginnings, taking care of life. I learned a little about the Book of Life and Book of the Dead. And even though I was totally lost I felt so included. Could not for the life of me even with the words in front of me keep up with the songs yet they felt so comfortable on my ears.
At the end of the service there was a Mourner’s Kaddish and I thought of my good friend Perry. While he is no longer with us I keep him alive within me and all the great times we had. If he had been with me or rather I’d would have been with him, he would have explained everything in detail to me. And then tongue in cheek, explain why I would never really get it. Miss you Perry!
One last thing, part of the service is the blowing of the Shofar and I had the privilege to have photographed Meira Warshauer’s music that she wrote for a Shofar. Fits nicely with today.
Interesting article by Don Giannatti about the need or not for a professional photographer.

After watching Grandchester on PBS and finding out what a ‘curate’ was came across this wonderful blog. Enjoy.
Inspired by Steve Tilley’s list of reasons to be married to a priest I thought I’d add a Vicar’s wife’s perspective. We’ve not watched the offending episode of Rev yet – we were interrupted before viewing on iPlayer by the Vicar’s diocesan golf team partner arriving to stay over so that he and the Vicar could get an early start off to their tournament today.
Anyway, I love being a Vicar’s wife, and here are some of the reasons why:
- I have a husband who is serious about loving me as Christ loved the church (Ephesians 5v25).
- We get to work as a team in all sorts of ways (hospitality, church strategy, cleaning the churchyard…)
- My husband is around to take kids to and from school, take them swimming and eat with the family most nights.
- He’s involved with the kids’ primary school and knows their teachers better than…

One thing that Mom loved was fall and the Buckeyes, especially the band. And one of the best show ever on stage is The Ohio State Marching Band on the stage at Vets Memorial. Close to the stage where you could feel everything!
This half time show you would love. Enjoy…
