Personal Touch

Welcome to the Neighborhood News

In today's Personal Touch interview by Rebecca Cressman, she talks to Teresa Tuck who is the Executive Director of Friday’s Kids Respite, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening families of children with special needs. Every Friday night, hundreds of Teresa’s volunteers offer consistent, responsible, and compassionate respite care for children who are challenged with Autism, Down syndrome, brain damage, Epilepsy, Cerebral Palsy, in addition to various rare genetic conditions. Teresa Tuck has been involved in the non-profit sector for over three years. Take time to listen to this inspiring interview, it will open your eyes to what some people are doing to bring  help to parents looking for a needed respite.

Our friend, and regular contributor Barbara Salsbury, writes for us in "Three P's in a Pod" her article "Aphids and Attitudes." Barbara found the little bugs in her precious plants that she'd been nurturing for a while to transplant to her vegetable garden. Read her account of the thoughts that the experience brought to her.

The next article was written by Emily Milner for Segullah.com. The article is "Daily Bread", and it's mostly about food. I know that there are cultures that add different types of bugs into their meals,and to them, they are a delicacy. However, in my opinion, it's an acquired taste. Now, this story is a very honest tell of how this lady felt when she found a little added flavoring to her rice.

Our last entry comes from John Newman from "Confessions of a Mormon Foodie." He's giving us some ideas on "How to Store Flour." Have you tried to be obedient and decided to start your food storage, only to find that all your flour got the weevils? Well, it happened to us, and if we'd known what to do, we could have gone without replacing the whole lot like we did. Live and learn, I guess. Just read John's advice, it's good and sound.
