Americans celebrate Mother Day on the 2nd Sunday of May. In Spain it is one week earlier. As a mother myself, it’s my day to be thankful to the Lord for the privilege to be a mom.. I have already received my gift~my children. How thankful I am! Every gift pales in comparison to that!
But as a daughter, Read more »

Dear President Obama,
We see that you have appointed another member to the Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. I would like to enthusiastically support this initiative HOWEVER; I ask that you immediately remove Harry Knox, from your council. In light of Mr. Knox’s recent comments regarding the Catholic Church, the Pope and, Mr. Knox’s unwillingness to moderate his hateful attitude and speech regarding both; we believe Mr. Knox demonstrates a clear preconceived prejudice against any kind of possible Faith-Based partnership whatsoever!
Mr. Knox’s position regarding condom use in Africa flies in the face of clear scientific evidence against his position. Why would we possibly want someone like Mr. Knox to advise you, our president, while Mr. Knox himself refuses wise counsel?
We are told that the success of Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships and multi-sectarian cooperation by foreign nationals with our military service members in far away places like Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan are critical to USA future national security. But, we at home endure bigotry and extreme prior bias in the attitudes and words of this specific appointee. Mr. Knox is supposed to foster Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships. How can this happen? Mr. Knox’s criticism of the Pope; (“harming people in the name of Jesus”) shows a pre-established bias against the Catholic Church. Let me add, we are Protestants (not Catholics) and we find Mr. Knox’s intolerance of our Christian brethren unconscionable! Mr. Knox brings division and prior prejudice to what might otherwise have been one of the more useful councils in your administration.
Mr. President, in order to keep your promises to the American People; to heal our divisions, to promote openness and transparency, and to work to reduce the highly polarized positions that prevail in our land, you MUST remove and replace this inappropriate representative with someone less biased and without prior prejudiced.
May I remind you that the Catholic Church represents about 40% of Christian America? Mr. Knox’s prejudices establish him as an enemy to these 40%. You should consider this in your decision.
I trust you will take definitive action to remove Mr. Knox as soon as possible.

Regarding the controversy about condom use in Africa, Here’s a link to a site that reports on the Africa condom research. It’s short and refers the reader to opinions by Edward Green, a senior research scientist at the Harvard School of Public Health, who in turn cites data in some peer-reviewed journals such as the Lancet, and Science, etc. that have confirmed that condoms have NOT worked as a primary intervention in the population-wide epidemics of Africa.
It´s time to start my Jalapeño peppers indoor! Our friends Tom and Jeanne, sent me this fantastic seed catalog and offered to send me seeds. I chose 2: peppers and kale (see photo). These peppers are extra large and good for canning, which is my intention. Since hot peppers and not available in Spain, I would like to can them and also can enough Mexican salsa to last 1 year.
