Aww, what a nice little find this thread was today.

BTW Frances (I think that is who asked) Chai is a must try. It is sort of spicy (in a good way) and sweet at the same time. Very hard to describe. I sort of get a 'black licorice' memory sometimes when drinking.

I have lots of things that are making me happy today, but I would have to go into too much background and personal stuff to say why these little things are cheerful, so I won't do that just yet. Let's just say that my daughter(s) have been faced with some things that can be challenging and they have finally found something that seems to be helping to overcome. Hopefully I can share more some day Smile

Sir Nicholas Winton organized the rescue and passage to Britain of about 669 mostly Jewish Czechoslovakian children destined for the Nazi death camps before World War II in an operation known as the Czech Kindertransport.

After the war, Nicholas Winton didnít tell anyone, not even his wife Grete about his wartime rescue efforts. In 1988, a half century later, Grete found a scrapbook from 1939 in their attic, with all the childrenís photos, a complete list of names, a few letters from parents of the children to Winton and other documents. She finally learned the whole story.

In the video , the survivors gathered to give him a wonderful surprise:

Aww, I love reading this thread! I had a nice visual of your son playing piano for smiling residents, Gail (even though I don't know what he looks like, of course)!


We close on our land today, so that's putting a smile on my face, and I'm having a blast looking through house plan books!
Love the emoticon, Glued! So cute!!

Congrats on the purchase of your new land. Looking through house plans does sound like so much fun.

Congrats, Glued.

50 years ago today my Mom was sworn in as a United States citizen...when the ceremony ended the new citizens were told the president was shot in Texas.
My Mom's happiest day turned into one of her saddest days....she loved the Kennedys, especially President Kennedy.

Thanks, guys!! Very Happy

Schooner, I meant to comment to you earlier that nothing is more important to us as parents than our kids and their well-being and happiness, and I'm so glad for you that your daughters are being helped! <3

Maureen, I can only imagine the highs and lows of emotions that your mother and everyone who was sworn in with her felt that day!

She came over from Limerick, Ireland, Kay.
I can imagine how scary it was for your parents...and heartbreaking for them too.
