Students for a Free Tibet
The following are things that make my world unique. Some of the items on the list will help you too!
Aloe Vera Juice (not gel)
A miracle product by nature that I now swear by (thank you M.H. for turning me on to this!). I am not a medical professional but I drink about 5 ounces of this in juice every day and I no longer suffer from cold hands & cold feet. I also have glowing SOFT skin.
At Trader Joe's I buy this by the gallon for an amazing price of $7.99!
Appenzeller Cheese (from Appenzeler, Switzerland)
At $18 a pound this is a luxury cheese and I don't have it very often but if you want a taste of heaven,
try this cheese - better than Gruyere & Yarlsburg combined - this is the king of all Swiss cheeses- YUM!
Total (brand) 2% Fat Yoghurt (Yogurt)
good as ice cream, this rich and creamy yogurt is
fantastic when drizzled with honey. Great with fruit
Jubilee Chocolates & See's Candies (Lollipops)
I have a huge sweet tooth and I think all gourmet
lovers know about Jubilee Chocolates (ironically the
company is in Philly). Experiencing Jubilee
Chocolates is a MUST DO in this lifetime. They are
online too. See's Candies lollipops (vanilla & chocolate) are my absolute
favorites and are also available online. Yum!
Barry's Irish Tea
Available at Irish Shops and online. I was
turned on to this tea by a coworker about 8 years ago when I worked
at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Now
I know why Irish eyes are smiling - because everyone in
Ireland drinks this AWESOME tea. The tea bags are
HUGE and one tea bag can actually brew several cups.
This is strong.
Ask and You Shall Receive by Esther & Jerry Hicks
I have huge library of metaphysical and new age
books and this is my newest favorite. I will say no
more. The book speaks for itself.
I Met A Penguin by Frank Asch, copyright 1972
Out of print, but you can find this on line via used book
sites. One of my favorite children's books. Mr. Asch
mixes Picasso with Cocteau and little Henry Darger to
create a wonderful children's book that's really for
adults. He managed to get away with drawing penises
in a children's book...all I can say is WOW!
Adventures of Perrine by Henri Malot, copyright 1932
Out of print, but also available on used book sites.
This was my favorite book growing up and the
illustrations are wonderful too.
I love old movies so I love TCM - Turner Classic Movies - on Cable as well as Sundance Channel and IFC for documentaries. My guilty t.v. show pleasure is THE SOUP on E! Channel. Joel McHale is hilarious. The show is witty and sarcastic and exposes the absurdity of celebrities, reality shows and entertainment media B.S. I usually laugh so hard, I have tears streaming down my face.
DAVEY AND GOLIATH cartoons on Saturday afternoon on the Trinity Broadcasting Network. I own all the DAVEY AND GOLIATH cartoons which exist on DVD but there are many more still not converted to DVD. I find DAVEY AND GOLIATH a wonderful, happy, child-like and peaceful to watch before going to sleep. It is like a drug free sleep inducer. When I awake the morning after, I feel happy. Watching DAEVY AND GOLIATH is almost a religious experience for me. I loaned some of my DVDs of D & G to a friend and she had the same emotional reaction.
Organic cotton socks by Maggie's Socks
They are online too but cheaper at WHOLE FOODS MARKETS. I went wild
when I found these socks at Whole Foods. I threw out
all my old socks. Now my feet don't sweat or stink.
I even bought a pair of the Tie Dye kind. My feet
feel sooo good now.
