(3) Janeen R. in PA: I found this in the Jewish Exponent and made it last week. However, it is not really just for Passover and no special ingredients are needed! Since there are so many people who have allergies to gluten, it reminded me of a mushroom onion quiche since no crust is actually formed–but it is shaped firmly in a pie plate! PS. I made l/2 the amount, and it came out perfect.
2 large red onion,(must use red onion) I cut onion in 1/2 then sliced 3 tab. oil 2 lbs. mushrooms, peeled & sliced 3 eggs (if you 1/2 recipe use 2 eggs) l/4 cup mayo 2 tab. potato starch (2 tab. corn starch is the same) 2 tab. onion soup mix l/4 tsp. garlic powder, ground pepper for taste.
Spray with cooking spray a 9 inch round pie plate preheat oven to 350 degrees Heat oil in skillet & saute onions til soft about 8 minutes. Add mushrooms & saute additional 2 minutes. In a large bowl, combine onion – mushroom mixture with remaining ingredients. Stir well to combine. Pour mixture into the prepared pan. bake for 45-60 minutes til top is browned. serves 10
(4) Sunny R. in NC (with a REQUEST FOR HELP): The 22 year old daughter of one of my best friends in Spain is coming tomorrow night, for 3 weeks, to experience American life and culture, and practice her English. Carole and Brian will have her at their home part of the time, since I will have to work my normal schedule, and I am looking for ideas for things to do and places to go, and if you have any young people in your circle of friends/family that might be able to spend some time with her. Her name is Ainhara, just graduated from college in Barcelona, and will be happy doing anything while here. I believe Carole talked to Marcy about spending a day at Kilwin’s and shadowing someone there. Thanks for any assistance and ideas! Respond to: email@example.com
(5) Jane B. in NC (with a REQUEST FOR HELP): As you know, I work for a homeless shelter and Soup Kitchen in Wilmington where we feed, shelter and more importantly rehouse our neighbors in crisis. We are having a fundraiser this fall (September 20) called The Flavor of NC as a way to remind us that we share a Carolina home. The event will feature foods, drink and music from 3 regions: the mountains, the Piedmont and the Coast. Since you are so connected in the mountains, I’m wondering if you know anyone who would be willing to donate a weekend in the mountains–a home, a bed and breakfast, a resort. Anything that we could use in our auction to help raise money. Let me know if you know anyone I can contact. Really appreciate your help and support. If you can help out, please contact Jane at 910-763-4424 x110 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
(6) David W. in NC: Was my first read of the newsletter and liked it…many thanks.
(7) Janet W. in NC: I know you have been musing how there are no decent diners in Asheville. I wondered if you have tried “The Local Joint” in Fairview. We have stopped there a time or two on our way back from our cabin in Lake Lure. We have found it to be quite delicious. As so typical in Asheville it uses local a lot of local produce and meat, cheese, etc- the chalkboard has all the vendors listed. We haven’t been there for breakfast, but want to try that too. You should check it out. Maybe it’s what you’ve been looking for!
(8) Sandy B. in PA: Great issue Blaine! First of all I LOVED the bobblehead of you and MBB Cynthia – but $238? Holy crap? How much of a coupon did you have and how big is this ‘statue”? LOL
also loved the OBIT on Ginny Jameson and when I went to read more of the obit, I discovered the BC Herald. WOW – loved it. Will be reading that now instead of the Courier Times.
also loved the shadow fun pic and the love-hate pic you included. So all in all this was quite entertaining and enjoyable on a Sunday morning! Thanks buddy!
Response: I think I got $75 off with the Groupon. The statue was a bit on the smallish side.
(9) Michael F. in NV: Nice bobble head piece.
(10) Donna S. in AL: The weeks pass fast these days. I turn around and another newsletter has come. I enjoy them so much.

|Aloha,I hope you have been enjoying a wonderful and relaxing summer!With Fall on the horizon, I am so excited to share what has been happening for me and what I will be doing in the Fall here locally in the Asheville area as well as long distance – with both my music and the Hawaiian Healing Arts under a new Name and Brand. It has been a long journey over the last number of years, with a lot of moving around and going through a number of relationships to bring me to where I am here now in returning to Asheville. I feel I have come full circle in many ways.I have spent the summer exploring and playing with all the pieces – like the pieces of a puzzle – to see how they now all fit together. It has actually taken the full 9 months since I have been back in Asheville to bring it all together. And this baby is definitely ready to finally “be birthed”.I am now officially introducing Bring Hawai’i to Your Hips and Aloha to Your Lips to help Women to Let your Inner Self Flow. I will be sharing this as a Hawaiian Musical Storytellerand through the Hawaiian Flow Transformation System for Women, a spirit/body/mind integration system using the Sacred Knowledge and Ancient Healing Arts of Hawai’i.For those of you who are not familiar with these ancient arts, they are grounded in what the Hawaiians calls “Living the Aloha Spirit” or “the Way of the Heart” and have tremendous roots and history. In going back to them, we can learn how to go forward by looking deep within to our spiritual understanding and empowerment of ourselves – to our own Inner Flow. They are a precious resource in our modern world that is punctuated by so much stress, chaos and uncertainty by helping us to maintain harmonious relations with our spirit/body/mind, the sacred land and the human family so we can co-create the world and the life we want.Hawaiian Musical Storytelling I am continuing to do Programs at the Senior Residences around the Asheville/Hendersonville area.I have a Concert scheduled on September 6 at the Fletcher Branch of the Henderson County Public Library from 11:00am to 12 noon. It is open and free to the Public. I am in the process of getting one set up at one of the Buncombe County Librairies.I have also become a member of the Asheville Storytelling Circle and will be doing much more storytelling around the area. I also am planning another Kaleo & Friends Concert at the Masonic Temple for some time later in the fall.The two Hawaiian Flow Trainings that I will be offering, starting in September are: The Sacred Art of Hula – a new weekly class in Asheville Would you like to experience a flowing and sacred dancing meditation to gracefully move more easily and freely with the flow of Nature – the “aina? Would you like to experience the fun and joy of living as the radiant and empowered goddess that you are? Come experience this Sacred Art & Ancient Storytelling, that is similar to the Chinese Tai Chi with its slow and fluid movements, There is an Introductory Class on Monday, August 25 from 6:30-7:30pm in West Asheville. Call to reserve a space, and you will receive a 50% discount on the fee. The new Sacred Art of Hula class will begin on Monday, September 8 from 6:45 pm to 8:15 pm. I am also continuing to share hula with several of my students in Bloomington – over Skype. Who would have thought that would be possible??? It is! And I am speaking with some of the senior residences locally here about offering classes to their residents, and at the libraries as well. I am so pleased to see that there is such an interest in women wanting to learn this beautiful dance. The Art of Forgiving through the Kupono Process, a System of Conflict Resolution Would you like to change your relationship to the world so your experience of the world will become more grounded in love and harmony? Would you like to become realigned with your spirit/body/mind and your past, present/future? The Kupono Process is a more traditional version of Ho’oponopono, different from the modern form so popular today on the Mainland. Ho’oponopono is one of the most sacred values and practices of the Hawaiian tradition for conflict resolution. This version uses simple and practical techniques for both groups and individuals, and it includes your relationships to the physical, financial and environmental conditions in addition to your family, business organization, circle of friends and couples. A 7-week training on the Art of Forgiving and Conflict Resolution will begin on Thursday, September 11 for 7 consecutive Thursdays from 6:30 pm– 8:30 pm. Private Mentoring Sessions are also available A 20 minute complimentary Aloha Session is also available during the month of August by phone or Skype. Call and schedule a time to see how the Hawaiian Flow Transformation System can be of help to you. And, last but not least, I have a whole new look for my website. Check it out at: www.kaleowheeler.com, and let me know what you like about it. You can find more info and a schedule of all the events there as well. I would enjoy hearing how your life is going. If you have a moment, drop me a note or give me a call for a little “talk story”. Me ke aloha pumehana, Kaleo|
