Amazing Palindrome
Arthur sent me this astonishing video: A palindrome reads the same backwards as forward. This video reads the exact opposite backwards as forward. Not only does it read the opposite, the meaning is the exact opposite.

This is only a 1 minute, 44 second video and it is brilliant. Make sure you read as well as listen…forward and backward.

This is a video that was submitted in a contest by a 20-year old. The contest was titled "u @ 50" by AARP. This video won second place. When they showed it, everyone in the room was awe-struck and broke into spontaneous applause. So simple and yet so brilliant. Click here to see for yourself.

Really, REALLY FUN Run!

Family TIES is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping families provide a safe, nurturing and positive environment for their children and teenagers by providing them with free parenting classes specific to their child's age. The program seeks to educate prenatal parents and parents with children up to age 18. They serve families who are mandated by DFACS or the court system, as well as parents who are incarcerated or any parent wishing to improve their parenting skills.

One of the program's primary fundraisers is the annual Family Fun Run and Walk. This year's event will be Saturday, March 20. Registration begins at the American Legion at the end of Riverside Dr. at 8 AM. There will be a 1 mile run/walk (at 9 AM) and a 5K run/walk (at 9:30 AM). You can pre-register up through March 4 for $20. That also guarantees your shirt size...and it's not just any old cheesey T-shirt- it's a moisture absorbent performance running shirt. Registration is $25 after March 4.

For more info and to register online, go to You can stop by N2N to get a form, too.

See you at the finish line!

Speaking of Molly...

Many of you know our daughter, Molly, who grew up here in the shop. Now she's 23 and halfway through a two year fellowship with the Institute of Southern Jewish Life in Jackson, MS.

The ISJL recently released this YouTube video outlining their many programs. Click here and watch closely...Molly has a cameo at about 3:47 into the 5 minute video. Lookin' good, Molls!


When June's father dies, she prays for a healer to come to the small town of Gray so that no one will ever suffer again. The next thing she knows, there’s a tornado, and a man in a balloon blows into town claiming to be a doctor. At first, the new doctor cures anything and everything, but soon the town's preacher takes ill with a mysterious plague. And then the plague begins to spread. Set in Indiana during the late 1800s, Anatomy of Gray deals with death, loss, love, and healing in a unique coming of age story.

The play is a collaborative performance between Johnson High School and North Hall High School. It runs Friday and Saturday, March 5 and 6 at 7:00 PM and Sunday, March 7 at 2:30 PM at the Johnson High School Performing Arts Center. Admission is $5.00.

Casserole Collection

There’s a reason casseroles have a reputation for being the standby fare for parties and potlucks: They feed the masses, are easy to transport and make great leftovers. Whether you’re a fan of tried-and-true versions, like Beefy Mac or Shepherd’s Pie, or inventive takes on the dish, like Baked Scallops and Shells or Chiles Rellenos Casserole, Woman's Day magazine has you covered. Click here for 10 different ways to whip up a crowd-pleasing casserole.
