Great links also. From Newsletter of Elizabeth Winthrop, Author.May 2005 Dear Friends, I'm a writer in what I call the "creative valley." Sometimes people call it writer's block, but I happen not to believe in the whole idea of a block. What's happening to me now is that I'm resting and refilling, building up the energy and ideas and growing new characters who will soon start whispering their stories into my ear. I recently finished the last rewrite of my latest novel, COUNTING ON GRACE (Wendy Lamb Books, Random House, Spring, 2006) and I'm hunting around for the next book. Will it finally be the third CASTLE book? Very possibly. But in the meantime I want to tell you about my latest picture book, out this month with Henry Holt. I grew up squashed in the middle of five brothers (two older, three younger) so it will be no surprise to my family and fans to hear that my latest work is called SQUASHED IN THE MIDDLE. It tells the story of Daisy who has to shout to be heard over the din of her noisy, well- meaning family. Whenever I speak to kids at schools and book fairs, I tell them that by the time they reach the age of twelve, they'll have enough ideas to write fifty books...as long as they catch their experiences in a journal... as long as they live a noticing life. SQUASHED IN THE MIDDLE proves that even after more than fifty published books, I'm still plumbing my own childhood for stories. I am often blessed with gifted illustrators who with strokes of pen and brush bring my characters to life. Pat Cummings is no exception. With energy and a sparkling palette and her own unique eye, this award-winning illustrator has caught all of Daisy's emotional ups and downs with her bossy older sister and her annoying younger brother. I'm hoping that middle children everywhere will rejoice that their tale has finally been told! An added bonus is a teaching tips page with ideas (LINK) for bringing the trials and tribulations of Daisy right home to kids in the classroom. Hopefully this book will spark class discussion about how to navigate life in the daily scramble we call family. Please be sure to visit my brand new school visit page (http://elizabethwinthrop.com/schoolguide.htm) to learn about my programs in classrooms and at conferences. I'm also really excited about COUNTING ON GRACE, my middle grade historical novel about a French Canadian girl working in a New England mill. But since it won't be available for a year, I'm going to wait a while to tell you more about that. I have three books scheduled for 2006 so stay tuned!

aimeelynn.freeservers.comWelcome to Our Site! Hi, I'm D.O.G. My name means "Mom" or "Mother" in Filipino. I like the name Inna better than the others my masters and their friends were coming up with: they almost called me D2 or Minimi, but mom hated it as much as I do--thank goodness! I love running around and going for rides. I also love playing with D.O.G.--he's cool, but don't tell him I said so. Hi, I'm Inna. My name is pronounced "Doogie". I am 8 years old, and Inna is my little sister. She's a brat, but I enjoy having her around. She still has a lot to learn. Training her has been hard--she doesn't listen very well and is always too scared, but she'll learn eventually. I enjoy going on rides in our new truck. Sleeping on mom and dad's bed is my favorite thing to do, and I will do anything for cookies and treats. Life is good. The Move At first, we didn't know what to think about Utah. Now, we think it's pretty cool. There's lots of room to run around, and the camping is great. We do miss all our friends in California, but I'm sure we'll visit often.

angelfire.com/mt/microzyma Okay, I guess I'll start it . . . (see links). 3/26/2000: (This should be on the Microzyma pages but for now I'll put it here): Was on a site today, looks to be excellent--not only about microzymas. See "(1) - Recommended Site" on list of sites. In particular a report on the Rife microscope, designated "(2) - Recommended Site" on the same list. I wish the Doctors at the laboratory where I work could see this! I was a member of NIIN (Natural Immunity Information Network). I am a supporter of the NYSHA (New York State Homoeopathic Association). If this all sounds boring to you it isn't to me. I not so recently returned from a trip to Nicaragua. After ten years of US rule without war the country has again been brought to its knees and there is widespread poverty (80% unemployment) and Nicaragua is now the 126th out of 175 positions in the UNDP Human Development Index 1998; I don't know too much about it but it sounds like poverty to me. It is like Bangladesh or India or The Sahara in Africa or something like that. It is no longer a third world country, it is fourth world. The only thing is the Nicaraguan people will never be brought to their knees, even though there are only four-and-a-half million of them. Angelfire. Please come back and visit again! (Just a plug for ANGELFIRE for being the first free WEBSITE I found that works. No other endorsement intended.) So what else is new? Send me EMail if you want at the address below. Thank you.

FLASH: Our latest innovation is The Great WOMEN's LARGE Band! With an event at 11 p.m. on October 6th of this year, Thursday, at Desmond's Tavern, Park Avenue between 29th and 30th Streets, Manhattan, U.S.A.! The EVENT: Genesis Prepared! Our own selection of non-original but GR8888 tunes from throughout the ages, presented through the Red Light District (what better place for the CREATION?) poem 42nd Street by Robert Patrick, GENESIS from the bible, and our own STREET SCENE. WOMEN's LARGE is currently composed of Albert Solomon, Richard Gross,* and Orin Buck.* *Currently of The Great FIST OF KINDNESS band-- Affiliation for indentification purposes only. Note: The flyer above is for another event. The text below refers to this event and our previous incarnation as the Disaster Wisdom Follies . . . We are in mid-fall (by my system, which counts August-September-October as fall) and still not developing much momentum in our video-editing ambitions. The SHOW will resume, hopefully, in early 2006. ALBERT SOLOMON person Presents . . . The famous. . . PRINCIPALITY OF STAUNCH AND EVERLASTING IRRESOLUTION a.k.a. The DISASTER WISDOM FOLLIES, EVERLASTING GLORIOUS GENERIC GENETIC GERIATRIC DIXY PIXY FAMILY EMPORIUM AND BENEFIT FUND. Yes folks, for the first time the Principality will bring you staunch and everlasting irresolution (er, some of the time for some of the players . . .). The real question will be to see if it makes any difference? Lower East Side At: COLLECTIVE : UNCONSCIOUS 10 p.m. SATURDAY, hopefully some time in EARLY 2006. Company welcome at REHEARSAL 3-6 p.m. $7 or Any Donation. You may bring your own food or liquor. Reservations: email@example.com or 718-768-9079. 279 CHURCH STREET at White Street, TWO BLOCKS BELOW CANAL. A or any other train that stops at Canal Street (C/E/N/R/Q/W/6/J/M/Z), or 1/9 Train to Franklin Street. Located at COLLECTIVE: UNCONSCIOUS, the Principality is New York's premier underground theater show at New York's premier underground theater site. Hopefully sometime in EARLY 2006, we will have had six shows a year for well over three years. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes tedious, sometimes risque, but always in good taste, The Disaster Wisdom Follies targets the forms of theater themselves. It is a slow and gentle, inevitable and even ineluctable . . . disaster! The REGULAR CREW consists of noncomedian John King, primal therapy paraprofessional Walter Gambine, bandleader, host and universal wit Shante Jones, raconteur, piano teacher and musician Richard Tschudy and our always meticulous videographer and Speaker of Truth, Peter Thomas. And welcoming our newest (ahem!) member, the Honorable Jonathan Fenster, Chazzan. And you, the audience, are part of the show in mysterious ways that not even we understand. In fact, it is YOUR show even though we are the performers. And always, always, Awful Albert is there wearing his mop, showing his good legs (HE thinks they are good), singing old Hank Snow ditties and drawing from his extensive repertoire of sensuous anecdotes and noncomedy routines, and telling people what to do and what not to do. Many thanks, and please acknowledge this post. Thanks, ---- :) ------ Albert B. Solomon - Message tape 718-768-9079. We should tell you about the June 18th show but we are too lazy. Suffice it to say that there was general betrayal all around--you might even call it a revolt! Even so, some people believe it was our best show yet! If that isn't a disaster, what is? The March 12th show was - um - disastrous, but isn't that what it's supposed to be? There was no encouragement for the nudity, no curtain at the back of the theatre, no robes were brought for flashing as suggested, and most tellingly, I forgot the flipflops and even MY OWN FANCY SHOES! Nudity is not to be taken lightly or without preparation. And I entirely forgot the idea about John and me changing shirts . . . ! STILL, it was a lively show, with a lot of new music (I Enjoy Being a Girl, and I'm Just a Girl Who Can't Say "No," for example, plus a lovely melody by possibly Schumann that I remembered from my piano-lesson days, to sing my Ball a Lady song to). And the music this time was played by MOI instead of the absent and disgruntled RICHARD TSCHUDY - but we hope he will be back! Altogether, five hours of video taken though. Except for a musical interlude by "Dr. Jones" which made my belly roll like jelly. But Nudity or No, maybe it somehow gave us an edge because it was a fun show anyway. Special thanks to all the solicitous ministrations of TOM our Doorperson and a new member of the Collective, who among his many acts of charity gave me a tuna salad sandwich imported from the Suburbs! The December 11th show was . . . well, it was something new! And it had some very striking scenes on the videotape-- I feel like Warner Wolf! Other than that, it remains to be seen, but I hope Richard will stay with me long enough to try the collaboration again at least one more time. Sic transit gloria mundi! The October 23rd show was a Blast! The Chorus Line idea was well received by all and we made four hours of videotape--ugh! This was one of our happiest and most magical shows. At The July 17 Show I was rattled, very thoroughly rattled but not intensely or painfully rattled--you know what I mean? Thank you ---- Joe Mocrizima. Q & A 1. Is there nudity? No, but I have, uh, good legs. 2. Do you have a good voice? I think so. 3. Is the Show tasteful? I think so. 4. Would you invite your mother? My mother was one of my biggest fans, and she coined the expression "staunchly irresolute." Through every type of trial and tribulation-- including the transit outage following an explosion at the Con Ed plant-- the execrable and unworthy event has continued. Why? ----- :) ----- Albert (updated 05-05-05.) EMail HOBCES@YAHOO.COM. Thanks again. Sorry--for some time the link to the Microzymian page has been missing from the list of links. Now, 05/10/00-WE/5760, I have restored it I hope. Thanks. More on Microzyma page today, 12/26/00. First message, Early November, 1999 (5760): On another page there is a picture of me with a big toothy grin. I am a really cute and charming 40+ male who has several projects he works on and some others that are just a wish list. I am a Reformer at the Food Co-Op where I buy food. The Government needs to be more democratic. In fact, it is hardly democratic at all. I am a lifelong journal writer. For friends and serious admirers, there are pages with some of my journals. Please send EMail to request URLs. You are probably wondering what the Mighty Microzymas are all about, but this is too big a subject to start a page on right away. I have to wait for a moment of inspiration, maybe on Thanksgiving Day! <11/23/99TU> Okay, I guess I'll start it . . .

sgjazzy.tripod.com/stghome.htmlShayla G's Homepage Welcome to my life! My name is Shayla. I reside in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Why did I set up a Web page? Why not? It seemed like a good idea at the time (and hopefully it still is). I hope you like learning about me, and please, take a look at my links. I think they're great sites! What do I have to say for myself? Well, if you ask anyone who knows me, alot!! Always talkative, always curious, always busy (sometimes too much!), my life is always in a state of go, go, go! Not that I mind. I like keeping busy. So, I constantly fill my life with events, friends, pursuits and more. People say that if you want to find out about anyone in the Jewish community in Toronto... ask Shayla! I seem to know a lot of people... Music is extremely important to me (see my links...), so is the Jewish Community (again, see my links)... I'm active in many groups in Toronto, including Kolel (the Centre for Liberal Jewish Learning), a monthly current-affairs discussion group, and Hadassah-WIZO (where I'm President of the ATID Chapter (30-somethings, half singles, NOT the ladies-who-lunch crowd). (We're always looking for new members, so if you're interested, please send me an email or sign my guestbook!) Our newest ATID project is selling one of a kind hand-made pottery pieces by retired Toronto artist, Annie Schwartz. Visit ATID's pottery website. to view our site and see the link to our photo gallery. If you're interested in purchasing an item (all proceeds to charity), please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Back in 1997 I was heavily involved in the community theatre scene in Toronto. As part of JEWISH THEATRE PROJECTS, our cast of mostly amateur actors created several plays through the workshop and audience feedback process, under the experience and direction of Jodi Miller. Our works in progress, "This Could be the One!" was a lighthearded (and often touching) look at being Jewish and single, and living in the 90s! We workshopped it to an audience of almost 500 in March, and then reworked it for a three-night run in September. It was a great success! In addition, we were also honoured to be part of the Ripple Effect Festival of Theatre of the Oppressed, which was held that year in Toronto. We created a series of scenes which illustrated oppression -- from within our own community, family and friends, and also from outside our community (i.e. anti-semitism). Our performances that summer were an unforgettable lesson in oppression, authority and the power of words and actions on everyone in our lives. It was a fabulous opportunity to be part of such an incredible festival. I also met some of my closest friends through Jewish Theatre Projects. My Family My mom, Sharyn, is one of my best friends. Her partner in crime is Reuben. My brother Arthur is married to Judy, and their daughter Kerry, my niece, is one of the loves of my life. I cried when I first held her! She's growing like a weed, but always a wonder to behold! How time flies! The newest addition to their family is Yael Ronit, born in November 2001. Both girls are brilliant and amazing... but of course, I'm biased! My other brother Sheldon, is married to Laura. Both brothers live in the U.S., so our visits mean a lot to us all. I have tons of relatives, outside of my immediate family. A family tree would take up all the space I'm allowed at this Webserver. Honourable mention should go to my closest relatives... they know who they are!! (I'm afraid I'd get verbally abused if I dare leave anyone out!) Check out my PHOTO GALLERY to see pictures of my family and friends. Check it out periodically, as I update it whenever I have a chance. Hobbies I love creative pursuits, everything from decoupage, to jewellery making (although I haven't done much of that lately), to listening to live music (especially jazz, 70s funk and 80s retro), to writing, to baking and cooking (I do a lot of that!)... I'm never very bored! (but often quite tired!!) In September 2000, I joined a Jewish bowling league in Toronto (couples/singles, 30s and 40s). Without expecting to, I met a great guy there: Jack... (here's us at a resort this past summer, the day after he proposed!): After dating for almost two years, he finally popped the question! We're were married in April 2003!! (Thank you maven bowling league for changing my life!!!) We're also involved in Mosaic. Check out their site for all the latest activities in the Greater Toronto Area. Other activities I enjoy are: badminton, cycling (I'm still a novice), walking, baseball ( joined a recreational league in the summer of 2001), and I recently discovered (on a trip to Club Med, Cancun...) that I enjoy water aerobics. I also snorkeled for the first time!!! What an experience! I even like to showshoe, and may even try cross-country skiing again (I haven't been overly successful with it lately :-) . Friends "I get by with a little help from my friends!" Boy, do I ever. I'm blessed to have long-time friends, since childhood... Karen, Sherry, Ann, Rose, Pat; friends from the University of Waterloo (and their partners)...Beth (and Jay), Tony (and Dan), Ivan (and Laurian), Glenn (and Rona), Steve (and Ariela)...; and friends from Tel Aviv University...Wendy and Oz, Michele and Mike, Tammy and Vic, Marc, Sarah, Ari. I also have newer friends, without whom I'd never survive... Miriam, Erin, Kefira, Renay, Tikka, Elaine, Lukshmi, just to mention a few. I'm still in touch with most of these people, even after 10, 15 or 20 years of friendship! I also have 4 pen pals, Tanja in Amsterdam, Damien in Paris, Jonie in Maryland (formerly Natchez), and Bryan in Kentucky. I met them all when I was 16, through the Manhattan Transfer Fan Club. We were all huge fans of this premier vocal jazz ensemble, and to this day, we're all still extremely into jazz and various other types of music. My Business -- Shayla "Gee" Enterprises With a B.A. from Waterloo, and a Certificate in Public Relations from Humber College, my ideal job is planning events, doing promotions, and writing, preferably in the food industry (specialty/gourmet especially). For now, I'm doing desktop publishing and writing for a small communications firm in Toronto. I also have my own freelance business, which helps me keep the creative juices flowing. I do desktop publishing, press releases, writing, editing, and small event planning/promotions. Please take a look at my Event-Planning Experience for an idea of what I've worked on in the past, both professionally and as a volunteer. Email me at email@example.com if you're interested in learning more about how I can help your business. My Favourite Links My favourite sites on the Internet deal mainly with jazz, food or Judaism...Check them out!: Food Links I love to cook, and I especially like trying out new recipes. I'm on a Jewish Food List online, which has introduced me to many new friends around the world, including some in my own backyard! They're a great group of people and if you're interested in Jewish cooking, the JEWISH FOOD LIST is the place to join (see 2nd link below).

angelfire.com/me3/hpotterPotter Storm An Original Harry Potter Site Sprung From the Mind of October Welcome to Potter Storm! There's plenty to do here if you, too, have found delight in the magical world created by J. K. Rowling. I try to keep this site interesting by doing things just a little bit differently, so it isn't the same old stuff you see on every other Harry Potter site. This is less of an "interactive" or "rpg" type site, and more of an "I tell you what I think" site, after which you're free to tell me what you think in the form of an e-mail which at least makes passing attempts at being polite even if you disagree with me. I always appreciate feedback and alternative points of view. And if I happen to pick up some interesting news or rumors I'll put them up here as well. I'm sorry to say that once again your faithful webmistress has become embroiled in the insanity that is education and/or theatre, and I believe the e-mail backlog is now about six months long. So unfortunately, further site updates may be a while in coming (although when they do, you'll be notified at Site News). That also means that any e-mails you send me may go unread for another month, at which time, hopefully, things will have calmed down sufficiently for some massive catching up. In the meantime, enjoy what's here, if it sparks interest or inspires ideas DO e-mail me (I promise I'll check it all eventually), and if you have any questions, you can check out my Frequently Asked Questions Page. And if you're really my friend, you'll sign the guestbook at the bottom... :) I hope you enjoy Potter Storm. Watch out for LIGHTNING!
