“As an earring of gold,
and an ornament of fine gold,
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
This song is the same age as I am. Golden Earrings is one of my all-time favorite films - and why not? It has everything - spies, intrigue, romance, costumes, jewelry, singing, dancing - and gypsies! What's not to love?

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 09/30/15:
|“The best antidote I
know for worry is work. The best cure for weariness is the challenge of
helping someone who is even more tired. One of the great ironies of life
is this: He or she who serves almost always benefits more than he or she
who is served.”
Gordon B. Hinckley
Thanks so much, Susan!

“I was having a bad day, and my friend said, 'Go wash your hair.' I
thought it was really silly - but it made me feel so much better. It
might be a small thing, but it works. Washing it off and starting over.”

From www.ajokeaday.com - 10/01/17:
|After registering for his high school classes, my son burst into the house, filled with excitement. "Dad," he announced in one breath, "I got all the classes I wanted. But I have to have my school supplies by tomorrow. I need a protractor and a compass for geometry, a dictionary for English, a dissecting kit for biology—and a car for driver’s ed."|
