Would you feel if you picked up your newspapers next week and read that the president of Iraq justified the appointment of an Iraqi Supreme Court justice by telling Iraqis: pay attention to his lack of legal expertise. Pay attention to the fact that he is a Muslim fundamentalist and prays at a Saudi funded Wahhabi mosque. Is that the.
The secret ingredient that makes these croissants so buttery is and this is a shocker the butter. It comes from France and is denser, richer than the American stuff, which is served on the side but is totally superfluous. Croissants are $1.50; a cup of espresso $1.50.
Another wildflower that puts out more large, parallel veined, oblong shaped leaves than flowers is white clintonia (Clintonia umbellulata). Its single stalk holds an umbel of fragrant, white flowers, often dotted with purple or green. Every year I find 12 or more plants clustered at the base of an oak tree above our hollow road, but only one or two flower.

One flower was new to me, which is always a thrill herb Robert (Geranium robertianum), also called “red shanks” and “dragon’s blood,” because of its reddish stem.

In Pennsylvania, it likes to grow in moist, wooded, rocky slopes and ravines..
The base, is wood spool that had twine wrapped around it. I removed the twine and painted it white. On the top of the spool, I added a circle of burlap, and glued some eyelet lace to make a for the pincushion to rest on. Fringe is probably the next best sci fi show on TV right now. It got that sort of battle star galactica character driven aspect. You really get to know the main characters, but also has great possible sci fi twists.
