Automotive horror

As a senior citizen was driving down the freeway, his car phone rang. Answering, he heard his wife’s voice urgently warning him, "Herman, I just heard on the news that there’s a car going the wrong way on 280. Please be careful!"

"Heck," said Herman, "It’s not just one car. It’s hundreds of them!"

At the public pool

The lifeguard told the mother to make her young son stop urinating in the pool.

"Everyone knows," the mother lectured him, "that from time to time, young children will urinate in a pool."

"Oh really?" said the lifeguard, "from the diving board!?!?"

- If you are good, you will be assigned all the work. If you are really good, you will get out of it.

News About The College.

Prof. Robinson has received the formal acceptance of Miss Giga B. Ritter, of Chicago, as teacher of French and German in the college the coming year. In response to Prof. Robinson’s inquiry in regard to Miss Ritter, President Warren, of Boston University, says: "Miss Ritter’s father is so eminent an educator that the city of Zurich, Switzerland, several years ago conferred upon him an honor rarely given-’The freedom of the city.’ The Federal government of Switzerland also lately honored him with a commission to visit the United States and report upon American technical schools. Prof. and Miss Ritter give a weekly reception in their parlor for American students. Miss Ritter has the best of European opportunities and speaks English, French, and German with equal fluency. Her teaching and influence are excellent."

I can remember the conversation with my older brother, prob’ly twelve or thirteen at the time. I don’t know what it was about, but he was agreein’ with my folks about somethin’ that I didn’t agree with.

I made some statement about ‘em gangin’ up on me. Why couldn’t anyone see things the way I did?

He said somethin’ about takin’ a minute to at least consider the possibility that if ever’one was agreein’ but me, maybe, just maybe I was wrong.

Like I said, I don’t ‘member what the topic of conversation was, but mostly likely he was right and I was wrong. It happened on occasion. I doubt that I ever admitted that to him though. I would have never heard the end of it.

This is some fact, but mostly,

Journey Along the Wellness Path

by Leesa I. Robinson, N.H.P.

Whole foods are beautiful artistic works of our Creator! Whole foods in their natural state always exist as living complexes with specific synergists. No parts and pieces as we see in most high potent vitamin tablets or in packaged well-preserved food stuffs. With grateful eyes look closely at fresh potatoes, or a bunch of broccoli, or perhaps a bundle of beets. Look at them as you would look at a piece of art. Wow! That did not happen by accident. The designs of whole foods are well thought out, creative, unique, and fascinating to this whole food enthusiast!

Since we are all experiencing the scorching temperatures of summer, this is a fine time to take a look at some high mineral foods to bring into our summer-time meals. Often, because of the heat, we naturally pick up some of these foods and find them to be refreshing indeed.

Whole foods such as watermelon, bananas, apricots, carrots, salmon, avocado and spinach for example, not only can be refreshing in the summer but are filled with synergistic nutrients to help us deal with the summer heat. I can name one nutrient for certain that these foods all have in common and that is potassium.

Some foods that might be overlooked but helpful in the summer heat are lima, pinto, white beans, and lentils. Each supplying us with a generous amount of potassium along with a complete host of synergistic minerals and enzymes.

Enjoy the artistic garden of foods. Grab a bundle of vitality! Stir fry a portrait of color! Completely relish in and be astonished by wholeness this summer.


ART NOTES from Hyde House

Congratulations to all who attended or participated in our very successful opening night of the current Membership Show here at Hyde Galleries of artCentral! We had over 100 people attend Friday night in what turned out to be a breezy and beautiful evening, and did we ever get the great desserts!! Everyone attending really outdid themselves this year. I want to thank all those who came and brought their goodies, all who contributed to the donation box, and particularly those on my board who gave of their time to make the evening a great success. Don Knost gave his day to us, pitching the tents along with his crew from his business, and my husband Dan and board member Dean Vandergriff, assisted in setting up the venue outside. My intern Megan Hudson came over early from Joplin to clean and help me set out the 80+ folding chairs, and my board members Miriam Putnam, Kristin Huke and Helen Kunze were early arrivals to assist with clothing the tables and setting out the food. My announcement of our winners includes first award to Rachel Wilson of Avilla for her wood horse sculpture "Shadow", second award to Gregory Krepps of Pittsburg for his ceramic piece "Relic", third award to Martha Goldman of Joplin for her acrylic painting "Don’t Lose Your Head!", and the Underwriter’s Award, chosen by McCune-Brooks Regional Hospital went to Brenda Sageng of Carthage for her oil painting "Tower of London: May Afternoon." My personal congratulations to all of our winners this year, and thanks to our jurors Lil Olive of Springfield and Beth Simmons of Carthage for taking their time to assist in the process this year. Now, if you have not already seen our show, please come this weekend on Friday, Saturday or Sunday and do so! Our hours are noon to 5:00, and 1:00-5:00 on Sunday. It is a wonderful representation of 57 member- artists from our area, and some beautiful and unusual work done right here in our four state region!
