I hate oatmeal but I love oat grouts | who knew?

Oatmeal My entire life I have hated hot cooked oatmeal.  I dislike (to be honest HATE) everything about it.  The smell, the sliminess, the taste, how difficult it is to clean the pan.  I could go on and on, but I have read so much about the benefits of oatmeal […]

Daily News Tiananmen Square and Inner Peace

Excerpted From:
The relationship between Hong Kong and China is far more complex than most people realize. It involves politics, economics, trade, laws, and, above all, the people. “Hongkongers,” as they’re known, who lived for years under the influence and ways of former ruler Great Britain are wary about China’s intentions and indignant about the mainland’s meddling in its political affairs.

Mainland China and Hong Kong complement each other economically. However, their political differences remain entrenched. The century-long separation between the People’s Republic of China and Hong Kong created gaps which cannot be easily bridged even if the two are officially one country. Before Hong Kong and mainland China can truly unify, they must overcome significant differences.

Solitude ~ a gift from God

When I was growing up in a family of 8 children, I can never remember having any times of solitude.  10 people living in a cramped 4 bedroom, 1 bath “railroad flat type apartment” didn’t offer many opportunities for quiet times, let alone discovery. As a young adult, I took my […]
