BARBARA BROOKS

 

IS A POSITIVE PERSON

 

This week's Positive Person was nominated by Tricia Allison for the contribution she is making to not only help all children learn to read, but enjoy it as well.  Barbara is making an impact by collecting gently used books from our community and putting them into the hands of children. Barbara Brooks has lived in Vero for almost 40 years and is married to Dr. Harold L. Brooks, Jr. Together they have raised two children and are enjoying their three grandchildren. Barbara was always an active volunteer in her children's schools and has continued to give back to our community once her children were grown. She has a love for animals that led her to the Humane Society. Barbara was also one of the founders of the Indian River Green Team and encouraged the use of reusable bags before it was popular. She also encouraged organic and local produce consumption by hosting many organic potlucks in her home. For the past two years she has worked on the Kids Coalition  and Literary Services for almost three years. Barbara believes that everyone has the 'how can I help gene.' She personally feels great when she helps others and feels fortunate that she has the time to do so. She has received a lot of 'Thank Yous' through the years and recently received the Literary Service Award for 2011. You can find her collection chests around town and/or perhaps you have participated in one of her book drives through your church or school. These gently used books are then  donated to families who have few or no books in their homes. To date more than 1,000 books have been donated to RCMA in Fellsmere, Childcare Resources, Head Start, Daisy Hope, Turner's Childcare and Harvest Outreach. Barbara also enjoys playing tennis, walking, rollerblading, biking, art and writing. You can check out some of her artwork by going to www.barbsartwork.com.  She is inspired by her current hero, Betty Nelson, who is a smart, spry, funny, 95 year old who is in Barbara's memoir writing group at the library. She makes Barbara feel young at 65 and inspires her and makes her realize that there is still so much she can accomplish. Barbara loves The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz: Be impeccable with your word, Don't take anything personally, Don't make assumptions and Always do your best.  That sounds like sound advice for anyone!  Thank you Barbara for all that you have done for our community and its children! If anyone is interested in donating books, please contact Barbara. Click Here.

  A ROYAL EVENT OF YOUR OWN

I am sure all of our FLASHERS know that tomorrow is the much awaited royal wedding!  That's right...it is finally here. We have good news for you if your invitation got lost and you won't be hopping 'the pond' yourself. There is still just enough time to plan some 'royal fun' of your own. I will be heading to Georgia in the morning for a family friend's wedding.  If that wasn't the case, I would be rising early to accept the royal invitation from a friend to join her and other friends for a 5:30 am wedding call. Why don't you make some calls and get your gal pals together for a fun, fairytale morning.  You could even make it a royal sleep-over to help those friends that aren't real morning people!  Remember... no royal event would be complete without a special tiara for all your friends...crumpets and hot tea will add just the right touch as well. The prince? Hmmm...you might not be able to find him at the party supply store. But, then again, you never know where your prince is hiding.

FUN FOR THE FAMILY THIS WEEKEND

AMAZING NATURAL ART!

In observance of Earth Day we thought it would be fun to introduce you to Andy Goldsworthy. Andy is an artist that uses nature to create his masterpieces. He then leaves his creations in the environment for anyone to enjoy. You can click on the photo above to learn more about the particular piece. He chronicles the setting and will often go back to observe the effects of the environment. For the ice arch above he returned just in time to observe an individual knocking it down. "Sad" is all he wrote.

HEALTH TIP 

 

 

Pictures of  HENNA TATOO  ARTIST   THE TRUTH ABOUT TATTOOS!

 

Did you know that 25% of 18 to 30 year-olds currently have a tattoo and up to 65% of tattoo bearers are women? Should you get one? "No", says University of Miami dermatologist Jonette Keri, MD, PhD. "Down the road, you may not want it -- bodies at 60 look different than bodies at 30," she says. In other words, that rosebud on a young arm could look like a droopy flower on the wrinkled skin of an older person! "And, people still have preconceived notions about people who get tattoos," Dr. Keri says. "If you'll be looking for a job, you may not get it." Before you tattoo, it's important to know the health risks involved. Life threatening infections and serious allergic reactions are two of the dangers. To learn more about tattoos - why people get them, the risks involved, and your removal options if you change your mind, check out this website with a slideshow from Web MD. It might be a good idea to share this information with your son or daughter.  CLICK HERE

If you have a child in school, plan a special surprise for your child's teacher...a special lunch is always nice and one thing that was always a hit at my children's school was when we brought in a local masseuse and Starbucks one morning.  Talk with your PTA's and offer to help them recognize the wonderful teachers for all that they do.

        One Size Does Not Fit All! 

If you are older than six, you have seen thousands of advertisements for products claiming that," one  size fits all".  Well, when it comes to Home Health Care that is simply not true! The fact is many home health care companies try to package their care plans as just that, one size fits all.  From personal experience, I can tell you many companies use scare tactics to pressure you into signing up for services you or your loved one don't necessarily need or want. Sadly, often the client is left out of the decision make process entirely. Champion Home Health Care designs each client's health care plan to meet both their physical requirements and financial ability.  This is a unique balancing act that requires medical knowledge, financial management skills, scheduling expertise and a staff with the ability to deliver the services to the client's home in a professional manner, day in and day out!

 We invite you to visit our website or to call us (772) 257-0442.

royal recipe 3

1)  In large bowl place currants, golden raisins and dried cranberries. Zest and juice orange; add to bowl. Zest and juice lemon zest; add to bowl. Pour in 1/2 cup brandy, mix well. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand overnight. Drain extra liquid off soaked fruit, if needed. 

 

2)  Heat oven to 325F. Grease and flour a 13 x 9-inch cake pan. To make cake, beat butter, molasses and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally until blended. Gradually add the eggs and flour, alternating until both are incorporated. Stir in soaked fruit. Spread into pan.

 

3)  Bake 50 to 55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and surface is deep golden brown. Let cool in pan, about 2 hours. Brush with remaining 3 tablespoons brandy. Remove from pan.

 

4)  To decorate, cut cake into 12 rows by 8 rows. Place 24 squares, leaving space between each, on wire rack.

 

5)  In medium microwave-safe bowl, place frosting from one container. Microwave on High in 30 second intervals, stirring until smooth and pourable. Quickly spoon about 1 tablespoon spoon frosting over each of 24 mini cakes, covering tops and letting frosting drip over sides. Reheat frosting as needed, if necessary. Repeat with remaining frosting and mini cakes. Let stand about 30 minutes or until frosting is set. Decorate with edible fresh flowers and mint, if desired. Store loosely covered.
