Orvieto is an excellent example of an Italian hill town being built on the flat top of a volcanic plug with almost vertical sides which are topped by defensive walls. People have lived here since Etruscan times and the name Orivieto comes from the Latin meaning “ancient city.” At the highest point is Orvieto Cathedral […]

One glass of soft drink contains about 6 cubes of sugar; that means that drinking 2 l of it, instead of water, represents almost 35% of the normal daily caloric intake. Our body uses the calories from food to digest and process precisely that food that has been eaten (eating costs calories). This is known […]

Making memories in every dish

I am an absolute noodle lover, so I always have to eat noodle once a week (or at least twice per month). Well, eating noodles twice a month doesn’t seem to be fit for a noodle lover, but I think that is a healthy time range to eat noodle for me and my family (but […]

I told everyone I was done with this whole beef when “Scorpion” dropped. Once the album dropped and there was no Pusha diss, I was done with this. I said that I wanted to hear good music from Drake and that I was no longer interested in hearing a response to Pusha T. Drake just […]

I had a great time at the Freedom Women’s Center teaching the ladies how to make little boxes out of used Christmas Cards. This is one of my favorite crafts to teach, because it’s not difficult to do, once you get the hang of it. It’s also not gooey — no paint, glue, varnish; no beads, glitter, macaroni, beans to spill all over the floor. The necessary tools are usually at hand: pencil, scissors, straight-edge and used greeting cards. Transformed into a beautiful small box, the old card makes a lovely ornament and is perfect for gifting jewelry, cash, flower seeds or any other small item. (Note: I once made around 15 boxes to hand out at Christmas to the Sunday School Children. I filled them with a mixture of Skittles and M&Ms. The children informed me quite vehemently that one does not mix Skittles and M&Ms: either would be great, mixed together they are a disaster.) The request to lead a craft at the Freedom Women’s Center came at exactly the right time. I had been reading “Barking to the Choir; the Power of Radical Kinship” by Homeboy Industries founder, Gregory Boyle. Like his previous book, “Tattoos on the Heart,” “Barking to the Choir” is filled with stories that induce tears, laughter, and the desire to walk side by side with people who are doing the courageous work of turning away from crime and addiction into a newly restored life. Homeboy Industries Thirty years ago, Gregory Boyle, a Jesuit Priest was called to a poor parish in a gang-infested area of Los Angeles. With tag-lines like, “Jobs not Jails” and “nothing stops a gun like a job,” Homeboy Industries formed a silk-screen operation, followed by a bakery, cafe, tattoo removal operation, dinner, farmer’s market, catering … Now touted as the largest gang intervention, rehabilitation and reentry program in the world, the Homeboy Industries include life skills classes, job training, certificate classes, therapy, charter high school … Did I mention bakery? I ordered “Barking to the Choir” directly from homeboyindustries.org. It was a bit more expensive than Amazon, especially because I ordered a Kugelhopf Butter Cake to go with the book. A couple chapters into the book, when I was feeling that all these wonderful people are out there, who only need a hand up, and here I am doing nothing; I popped open the Homeboy tin and had a delicious slice of cake. Donating never tasted so good. I just checked the Homeboy website, because of course, I had no idea how to spell Kugelhopf. They have had such an abundance of orders, they are not taking any more food orders until after the New Year. There is still stuff available, however: apparel, kitchen things, umbrellas, bags … see homeboyindustries.org Teen Challenge The Freedom Women’s Center is one of five centers in Teen Challenge Monterey Bay. It’s antecedents go back to the late 1950s when a young country preacher, David Wilkerson, read about seven teenagers who were on trial for beating a man to death during a gang fight. Sensing God wanted him to help, he moved to Brooklyn, New York to work full time with teenage gang members. Teen Challenge’s inception is chronicled in David Wilkerson’s best-selling book, “The Cross and the Switchblade,” a terrific story. In the early 60’s a residential discipleship program for men was formed by Frank Reynolds, director of the Teen Challenge Training Center in Pennsylvania. His program became the primary model for Teen Challenge Centers worldwide. The first Women’s Center opened in 1967, through a donation by Tiffany’s president, Walter Hover. This fulfilled a long-time dream of also providing residential programs for females addicted to alcohol and drugs. The Teen Challenge discipleship  programs are discipline oriented with a balance of Bible Classes, work assignments and recreation. I think making Christmas Card boxes fell under ‘recreation,’ although the ladies worked plenty hard at it. You can learn more about our Monterey Bay programs at TeenChallengeMB.org. More Boxes On Saturday morning, I get to teach another small group how to make Christmas Card Boxes. We’ll be meeting at The Abbey Coffee Lounge, which is a wonderful gift to the community from Vintage Faith Church. If you happen to be there, come by and take a peek.

I don’t want anyone to be alarmed, but there are hipsters in the San Gabriel Valley. They’re hard to escape these days — bearded, tattooed young guys wearing Vans and cool t-shirts emblazoned with logos for Nashville honkytonks, their hair either coiled up in a man bun or shaved off entirely, accompanied by beautiful tattooed […]
