+Nadia Korths Its always fascinated me that so many plants can heal.  But I don't get further than reading about it, or drawing them, and growing all the normal herbs.  I know there are expert women in UK who grow it all and make the potions.  Bring back the witches I say... ;)  we probably lost a lot of knowledge  from earlier times.

About Iraq
 
We were privileged to hear from Canon Andrew White, known to many as "The Vicar of Baghdad," this morning in chapel. White is known for his significant peacemaking work through his role as president of the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East. He will be speaking on the topic of conflict and peacemaking in the Middle East tomorrow from 3:30 - 5:00 in the Meyer Science Center, room 145. We hope you can join us. His chapel message from today will be posted to www.youtube.com/wheatoncollege soon!

Letting Go...of Books

Part of my justification a number of years ago when I was an avid purchaser of knitting books was that they were an investment for the future.

The present returns are not quite what they were projected to be in the heady days of the mid-2000s, when knitting books were HOT! (Over $300 for Alice Starmore's Aran Knitting on Amazon--when there was a copy to be found.)

Nevertheless, they remain beautiful resources of a worthy craft!

#knittingbooks #usedbooks
...I am starting to sell my knitting books. The Alice Starmore books (second shelf on the right) are the first to be listed, at Treechild's Books on Amazon or on Ravelry (sign in required). I am hoping they go to a good hom...

(Lovingly) Used Books for Sale

I just lowered prices on many of the books I'm selling from my personal collection. Thanks for having a look!

Subjects include literary non-fiction and fiction; theology and spirituality; biblical studies; and crafts. (Well, not so many crafts. I can't bring myself to list my knitting books...yet.)

Minimal Maps

"'By focussing each map on a single subject, we are able to better visualise and understand our landscape.'" - Michael Pecirno

Most maps of the U.S. prioritize cities. But "Minimal Maps" single out the nation's forests, crops, and waterbodies.

Did you know the federal government owns 28% of all land in the US? A huge percentage of that is west of Texas and in Alaska.

It's Too Hot Here

"'By Friday, the high will probably edge over 90 degrees in downtown Los Angeles,' said David Sweet, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard.

“'This is only March,' he said. 'This is pretty early for temperatures up around 90.... We’re really running out of time when it comes to the rainy season.'"

"The rainiest months in Southern California are December through March. Since Oct. 1, downtown L.A. has recorded 7.4 inches. About 12.8 inches would be considered normal. The total in March has been a paltry .87 inches.

"No relief is in sight, said Bill Patzert, a climatologist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory."

From +Los Angeles Timeshttp://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-dry-end-to-rainy-season-20150322-story.html

#climatechange #toohot #norain  
Temperatures are expected to heat up toward the end of next week, signaling a dry, disappointing and foreboding end to the region’s rainy season as four years of low precipitation continue.
