Film Freak begins “Where I Begin”

OXFORD FILM FREAK – I’ve gotten a lot of questions from friends recently wondering where I have been as they hardly see me anymore, not even out at the movies. It’s true.

Phillips on a new movie to be filmed in July. (June 17, 2010, Page 14)

                Author helps cut down garden maintenance

                This year, persistent rains played serious havoc and frustration with my usual gardening schedule and routines. A good friend, and fellow Master Gardener, mentioned she was attempting to simplify her gardening. Shortly thereafter, a highly praised and widely recommended book came to my attention. The book is, “The New Low Maintenance Garden” by Valerie Easton. (June 4, 2010, Page 2B)
