Cincinnati Zoo

Went to The Cincinnati Zoo this week and saw some very interesting animals, from black, swinging apes to chubby, white panda bears, there was so much to see that I didn't get to tour the whole Zoo, the 86-degree melting heat being a factor. What I did find genuine was a 4-D Theater, one that not only amuses guests but also educates them into a new paradym shift. "Wild Earth Africa 4-D" covers the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Africa, and how they are tracking animals to keep them safe from poachers and educating tourists on Range Rover Safari rides through the open wild. And you feel the cool, crisp breeze as it guides through the brown-covered field, the startle of a lion and the splash of creek water as you ride through the creek..and believe me, it is real water, which is always welcomed in 86-degree exterior weather conditions. So don your 4-D specs and head to The Zoo.

Busy Day

OK, I meant to make it to Lincoln county to go to church but since I stayed up until after 4:00 AM, I overslept. I am now toasting me a bagel ( I make my own bagels) and will have some cream cheese and jam along with a cup of peppermint tea before heading off the the garden. It has been raining, so I will put on my "gardening shoes", as it will be a little muddy. We had some storms that produced more lightning than rain, and the garden did need the moisture.

Deadlines Today

I am multitasking today, writing newsletters, revising a chapter in the first book of my, "Amish Nurses of Lancaster County", series, and answering email from Twitter and Myspace. Tomorrow I am going to Lincoln County to Uncle Arvin's sister church, which is in Crab Orchard. My friend Racheal moved there when she got married and has been there ever since, and I would sure like to see her and visit for awhile. I need to mend one of my dresses after I get done typing. I have a special Sunday Nap that I wear for Sunday services. I keep it in an oval plastic hat-like container. My everyday one gets much wear, especially during gardening time. I made some virgin Mint Juleps today, as it is Derby Day here in Kentucky. I also made Mini-hotbrowns with White Cheese Sauce-YUMMY!! Check out my website at, and also my friends' websites at
