Need to Know

Self-reliance is a vital key to living a healthy, productive life. To be self-reliant we must master a basic set of skills, more or less making each of us a jack of all trades. Contrary to what you may have learned in school, a jack of all trades is far more equipped to deal with life than a specialized master of only one. Click here to see the list of 50 things everyone should know how to do.


Sometimes it's hard to get to sleep. Maybe it's the end of a long, frustrating day and your mind doesn't want to stop wrestling with the afternoon's issues. Maybe there's a loud party down the street. Or maybe your traveling and it's not always easy to drift off in a strange bed.

Dalton Ghetti is an artist who carefully carves the tips of pencils into amazing sculptures, using a razor blade, sewing needle, and sculpting knife. He’s been doing this for the past 25 years as a hobby, and doesn’t sell his work, only gives them away to friends. He even keeps the sculptures he’s broken as part of The Cemetery Collection.

N2N Family News

This is a week of change for the Glazer girls. On Tuesday Rachel leaves for her five week fellowship with the Bronfman Foundation in Israel. We can never find words to adequately thank all of those who helped send her on her way- the Board and congregation of Shalom b'Harim, the Gainesville Evening Optimist Club, the Hall County Optimist Club and those you who gave so generously to Rachel's bake sale fundraiser. You all made her dream a reality. I'm not exaggerating when I say we love each and every one of you.

Meanwhile, Arthur is in Jackson, Miss. helping Molly make her move to Winston- Salem, NC where she'll be working as the Director of Education at Temple Emanuel. We're so proud of you, little girl!

French onion dip and ranch dressing dip are BBQ mainstays, but they can turn carrot sticks into a fattening snack in zero seconds flat. Trade out processed, fattening store-bought dips for this healthy, easy-to-make dip, without sacrificing the creamy texture or flavorful taste.

Rosemary White Bean Dip


1 can white beans
½ cup olive oil
juice from 1 lemon
five-six sprigs rosemary


Food processor


Drain liquid from white beans. Combine beans, olive oil and lemon juice in foodprocessor. Pluck leaves from sprigs of rosemary and add to mixture. Add a dash or two of salt.

Process until mixture is smooth (like hummus) and rosemary is completely chopped/blended in.

Best if refrigerated and served cold. Serve with chips, crackers, carrots or celery.

From Arthur:

Arthur says he realizes that more and more computer users need help not just with viruses and malware, but with using their computers.
Getting a basic education in PC use is paramount in operating one. It's like getting into the driver's seat of a car, not knowing how to drive.
His upcoming column will deal with this issue. In the meantime, Arthur is available not just for your computer repairs, but to assist you in learning about your PC. He can teach you, one on one, what you need to know. Whether it is using Microsoft Word or learning how to cut and paste in Windows, Arthur can help you.

Make a list of the things you clarified and give him a call. He will also do a seminar for a group. Call a few friends and split the cost. His personalized assistance is affordable and he will make sure you understand what you need to. There are no questions too small and no answers too big.

Call Arthur at 770-540-5100 or email him at if you need to set up an appointment. He guarantees his work, has rapid response times and reasonable rates. You've read his columns in the Times, now let him go to work for you.

Have a remarkable week!
