Section 2, part 2

(1) Book to check out (written by Sharon Butler, a reader): Conquering Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Other Repetitive Strain Injuries: A Self-Care Program

(2) Sandy B. in PA: great issue!  loved the billboard, the pup/baby, and the mardi bra!  FUN!

(3) Zuzu W. in NC: Thanks for the link to the song I posted. I will be recording and posting some new originals in the upcoming weeks.

(4) Marcie F. in PA: You wear it [the bra] well!!!!

(5) Elizabeth P. in NC: If you are looking for a “real diner”, try 5 points restaurant at Chestnut and Broadway.

Response: Good place, and Cynthia in particular liked the liver and onions. But it is not quite what I miss from NJ; i.e., it’s not open 24 hours per day, you can’t get breakfast in the afternoon, and there isn’t an 8-page menu.

(6) Lana C. in OH: Excellent edition [#887].

(7) Roger C. in PA:  Once again, you did a stellar job with your recent newsletter.  This layout included plenty of graphics.  Very good.

Pictures often say more than words.

Keep up the good work.

Have you been to the Cherokee Museum and the Cherokee Village? It would be a very nice weekend trip if you include an overnight.  Plenty to see and do.   A great learning experience, too.

Response: Not yet; i.e., on the visit to the Cherokee Village. But thanks for the suggestion. I’ve add it to my list of places to check out.

(8) Ryan F. in PA: Have you seen the film “prisoners” yet? Good one to check out.

(9) Kaleo W. in IN (looking for housing on her move back to Asheville): I am reaching out to my Asheville network and community and to those of you who I might not have met yet – to ask for some help.  I have been living in the Bloomington Indiana area for the past several years, but I have found that I am not a Midwesterner and I miss the east coast energy.  For the last several months I have been exploring where I want to move to where I have history and community, and it has become clear after being in Asheville last week that Asheville is where I want to return to  – where I lived for 8 years before moving to Indiana – back to the nurturing and healing mountains the and the wonderful community there. So, I am moving back as soon after October 15th as possible – and I am looking for preferably a house sitting position, or a trade or a room at a very reasonable rent where I can stay with my little four year old female Maltese/Shitzu dog, Bella and my 9 year old black cat, Alika until I can get myself and my business re-established in Asheville. Bella is an incredible little being who loves everyone, both human and animal and Alika is an indoor/outdoor cat who is very mellow and also very affectionate.  If you know or hear of anything that you think would work for me, I would be very grateful if you would pass the info on to me.  And I am looking forward to being part of the Asheville community again.

(10) Trisha G. in PA: I am sorry the other site might be confusing so please make a donation for the Happy Flower Day project at this link. Sorry I am a bit distracted this morning because I got a request to be in Lionville for a 7:15 am flower delivery to a place that is more than an hour away. Circle of Miracles has set up a link so that anyone can make a tax deductible donation to help with gas, tolls and expenses. A million thanks!

Note: If you can support this project, that would be great. Trisha is an amazing woman who goes around delivering free flowers to the elderly.

(11) Patti A. in NJ: My friend Michele in The Challengers group in which I participate, shared a great web site for those of you interested in yoga. It is called There is an index of positions and illustrations explaining the way to do each pose. I have it marked on my favorites bar for future reference.
