The Weston A. Price Foundation 2014 Membership Drive

 

I spent some time today balancing my check book, paying bills, and making year-end donations.

I cannot recommend The Weston A. Price Foundation highly enough.

They have “no dog in the hunt” to sell to you.

They work to educate, educate, educate.  And their science is the work of biochemists and others with appropriate credentials and research backgrounds.  These scientists specialize in the chemistry of the human body with an emphasis on what we eat every day.  How can any “healer” heal without taking into consideration what people are eating?  Those are chemical reactions.

They have a legal defense fund which comes to the aid of farmers who are being attacked inappropriately by misguided government officials working from either unscientific belief systems or…from outright corruption at the behest of industry.

The WAPF has a terrific quarterly journal–I often try to guide you to articles from that journal.And, so, today I put some of my money where my mouth is…

My theory is that we have to support small farms and real, clean food.

The current membership drive information, itself, has some nice links.

Take a look?

What Kind of Quilt Will These Units Make?

I’m up to date with the “clues” for Bonnie Hunter’s 2014 Mystery Quilt, Grand Illusion.

But, will there be another clue, or are we done?

There were 4 units that might well be the cornerstones this week…

Here’s what I have right now…including the little “extra” units of small 1/2-square triangles…

We will all get the “reveal” or a new clue next Friday…

Christmas 2014

I hope your Christmas holiday was as nice as mine!

Friend Gina Caceci came on Monday the 22nd, and I picked her up in Portland at noon.

We played and walked and talked for five days.

We gave each other experiences, not things, which was lovely.

I miss her already!
