JOFA is a grassroots non-profit organization established in 1997 to educate and advocate for women’s increased participation in Orthodox Jewish life and to create a community for women and men dedicated to such change.
I took these this afternoon. I love stones and rocks. The shells are a really nice touch too. Right from the backyard here. I used to have an ‘L’ shaped rock with a fossil on the bended part. I kept it for years cause it was the first letter of my name, so kind of a special rock to find. I don’t know where it is now. Likely outside here in the rockpile too. I should look before I move. It would be easy for it to get left behind.
The ongoing eclectic journey of someone who has briefly lost her way. I’m a recent college graduate with a degree in instrumental music education who, for reasons of her own, has decided not to follow that path, but instead to go the music therapy route.

Urban Moms.ca I thought this was a pretty good site. I’m not a Mom but it caught my attention.
I’m looking forward to watching tonight. They are down to just 3 of them now. Sad to see Chad leave last week. I really thought he was going to be the one to win this year. I didn’t appreciate him earlier on in the show but he began to grow on me. He has a very unique sounding voice and his overall look too is on the villanous side. He would be a very interesting actor but he’d always be some devious villan.
Anyway, I am beginning to collect and finish things up so I can watch the show in about 15 minutes. However, tonight I have a friend, somewhere in the room. I haven’t seen him or her yet but I have been listening to them singing this afternoon. It’s a cricket, for those who haven’t already guessed. As long as he doesn’t get the idea to bother me, or jump out at me I am okay with leaving it alone in here. Just one more singer tonight. Though he doesn’t have the right look to win Canadian Idol.
A tiled background image which I found on a site I was reviewing for Dmoz. Very pretty, though kind of hard to see when it’s just one tile. I really like this kind of background though. Romantic looking but not really girlie.
It was a bit chilly to be outside reading today. But I was outside for awhile, taking some pictures and even reading too. So were Skye and Paul. I expect it’s warmer and sunnier where they are. Here are pictures of my reading place.
I had a bad run in with someone last evening and they only left this afternoon, after 2:00. I’m still feeling kind of upset but at least the jerk-bag is gone. It’s so rare that I get really mad. Afterwards I wonder how I looked. You can’t ever really see yourself that way. It’s not something you can duplicate in front of a mirror later on. Anyway, the funny thing is that after I lost it he actually seemed to make an effort to be less obnoxious. Of course, there will be fallout for the next week. I’m sure I will be reminded that I didn’t nicely follow all the rules of good hosting. Not that I invited him.
“The voice of Canadian Moms.” Looks like someone is working hard to make a decent site. I’m not a Mom but it caught my attention.
I was sad to hear that Steve Irwin had or yesterday in Australian time zones. He was 44 and left behind a lovely wife, 2 children and a world full of animals. He cared about the wildlife and the environment. I think I most remember him from The Crocodile Hunter when he was chasing after stray/ feral cats, trying to keep them out of the Australian ecosystem. Best wishes and thoughts to his family.
I am optimistic globally. So many scientists are working frantically on the reparation of our planet.
I believe that education is all about being excited about something. Seeing passion and enthusiasm helps push an educational message.
My belief is that what comes across on the television is a capture of my enthusiasm and my passion for wildlife.
When I talk to the camera, mate, it’s not like I’m talking to the camera, I’m talking to you because I want to whip you around and plunk you right there with me.
Yeah, I’m a thrill seeker, but crikey, education’s the most important thing.
is available on the site where I found the quotes. His site, The Crocodile Hunter is not loading today, likely due to a lot of web traffic.
