Why True Neighborhood Building Requires the Dedication of a Few 'Zealous Nuts' | Cities on GOOD | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it
We all have our own families, friends, and professional networks, and our own interests and hobbies that determine with whom we interact. Each of us is a member of many different communities that can extend over vast geographical areas.
Sharla Shults's insight:

We all choose to be the kind of neighbors that we want to be, through the ways in which we interact with each other in our local streets and spaces. In so doing, we choose to make our neighborhood the place that it is. What kind of place do you choose to create?

 

Celebrate NEIGHBORDAY tomorrow, April 27, 2013!

Awakenings: How do I Love Thee

Awakenings: How do I Love Thee | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

With Valentine's Day tomorrow, let's examine some history behind this day and what makes it so special. The featured article on Awakenings is from Micki Peluso, author of ...And the Whippoorwill Sang.


February 14th sometimes signifies the first day of Lent, depending upon the date of Easter, and is also Admission Day in Arizona. Most people however, celebrate the day by sending comic or heartfelt Valentines to family, friends and lovers. People seem to delight in St. Valentine’s Day, as florists, candy stores, boutiques and card shops do a rallying business providing heart-shaped novelties of all variety. Chocolate, long known for having properties that produce a euphoric feeling similar to the bittersweet emotion of love, seems an appropriate gift for St. Valentine’s Day.

Celebrate Neighborday on April 27 | Neighboring on GOOD

Celebrate Neighborday on April 27 | Neighboring on GOOD | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

Sharla Shults's insight:

It was a community of people whereby no one was treated any less than another and everyone called everyone by their first name, celebrated together, cried together and shared together...IN PERSON!

A Valentine’s Day Meal at Home - A Good Appetite

A Valentine’s Day Meal at Home - A Good Appetite | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it
Passionate cooks might shun going out, confecting tête-à-tête meals in their own homes instead.

 

There may be one true love, but there is no one true way to do dinner on Valentine’s Day. If you’re paired off, you could book the traditional table for two at a restaurant. It will be filled with other couples doing the same, attempting to ignore one another while pitching woo over oysters on the half shell.

 

GREAT VIDEO for preparing CHOCOLATE MOUSSE!

Yum! Sizzlin' recipes! After watching the video, Hubby and I just may have to indulge in the chocolate mousse tomorrow!
