The Joy of Sailing Wed Jan 11

from the DRYA:
Sailing enthusiast. Dr. Steve Linoff, and a few of his friends will discuss their love of sailing from their unique and different perspectives; cruising, racing,crewing and full time living aboard, We all have our reasons for our passionate involvement we'd like to share these with you says Dr.Linoff.

The club is located at 788 Lakeshore in Grosse Pointe Shores. The phone number is 313-884-2500 in case you want to call to make dinner reservations prior to the seminar which starts at 7:00 and runs until 9:00

The Seminars are developed with the novice and recreational sailor in mind. These weekly seminars are designed to introduce the sport of sailing to non- sailors and to broaden the knowledge of newer sailors. They are free and open to the public. One need not belong to a club or the DRYA to attend. All Seminars start at 7:00 PM

Editors note: Even though the seminars are aimed at novices, many experienced sailors show up just to talk about sailing on a winter night.

New Years Resolution


for 2006

Hugging is healthy!!!

It helps the body's immune system, it keeps you healthier, it cures depression, it reduces stress, it induces sleep, it's invigorating, it's rejuvenating, it has no unpleasant side effects, and hugging is nothing less than a miracle drug.

Hugging is natural

It is organic, naturally sweet, no pesticides, no preservatives, no artificial ingredients and 100 percent wholesome.

Hugging is practically perfect

There are no moveable parts, no batteries to wear out, no periodic checkups, low energy consumption, high energy yield, inflation-proof, non=fattening, no monthly payments, no insurance requirements, theft- proof, non-taxable, non-polluting and , of course, fully returnable.

This from wserversnews:
* Major Jan 5, 2006 Sober Worm Outbreak Expected According to iDefense, a security consulting firm owned by Verisign, on Jan. 5, 2006, there will be a substantial outbreak of the Sober worm. This will come from already infected personal computers (zombies) and from newly infected computers.

If you don't have a personal firewall, get the free Kerio Firewall now. (Link below) It works full-fledged for 30-days and then reverts to Limited Mode, but still does a lot of essential protection. Sunbelt is in the process of acquiring this code, so you can expect support in the new year.

And of course tell all your users that their Anti Virus at the house has to be up-to-date and don't open any attachments, if you don't know what they are. Be especially careful if they come from some one they know! They can download the Keri firewall as well: Down load is here

From one of our readers
Dear Peggyjo,
"Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace." (ed note: in the 12/27/2005 issue)This is a quote from the writings of Amelia Earhart, poet, inventer, volunteer in the WWI war effort, 1st female pilot to attempt to fly around the world. Her plane went down somewhere in the Pacific, and she was presumed dead. ( Ms. Earhart was also a feminist who was one of the founders of Zonta, an international professional./executive women's service group for women and children's issues. ) I knew the quote because I once presented a biography of Ms. Earhart at a local Zonta "Amelia Earhart Day" and also later used the quote in a personal growth workshop on Courage (to change) which I did for Kirk Singles several years ago.

Pat Hollenkamp

Dear Pat,
Thank you for your email and the information about Amelia Earhart. I did know the origin of the quote but it got lost in the publishing process.

  • Claudel and Rodin Exhibit until Feb 3 at the DIA
  • Romeo and Juliet, Antony and Cleopatra, Rodin and Claudel

    Among the world's love affairs theirs is the only one carved in stone.

    Camille Claudel (1864–1943) and Auguste Rodin (1840–1917) met in Paris in 1882. Claudel, seventeen years old, wanted to become a sculptor. At forty- one, Rodin was on the threshold of a brilliant career.

    For a brief, happy period, the two artists had an intense love affair fired by a common passion for sculpture. Claudel was present and involved during the creation of Rodin’s masterpieces in the 1880s and early 1890s. In the progression of her training in Rodin’s studio, she soon sculpted works of remarkable character and expressive power.

    Then came the storm. While Rodin’s new vision of sculpture spread over France and the world, Claudel struggled to have her work recognized in its own right. Irreconcilable artistic and personal differences developed. Their love dwindled. As Rodin’s skill and reputation grew, he was recognized as an artistic genius. He was often compared with the Italian master Michelangelo, as each was the most famous artist of his time. Meanwhile, Claudel withdrew and struggled with psychological problems, which caused her to be institutionalized for the last three decades of her life.

    This exhibition is the first in the United States to shed light on these sculptors’ mutual influences. Photographs and letters provide an entry into their private lives. Above all, more than 120 works tell the story of two talented and committed artists determined to find their way, without compromise.

    Exhibition organized by Musée national des beaux- arts du Québec, in Québec City, with Musée Rodin in Paris. In Detroit, the exhibition has been made possible by a generous grant from the DaimlerChrysler Corporation Fund. Additional support provided by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs and the City of Detroit.
