Saint Nikolaus was a 4th century bishop who was known for his good deeds.  The most famous story tells of how he secretly helped a poor man and his three daughters.  Nikolaus was too modest to help in public, and wanted to save the man from any possible humiliation.  Under the cover of night, Nikolaus climbed onto the roof and dropped three pieces of gold down the chimney.  The story goes that the gold fell into three shoes which were upon the hearth.  Another story says that the gold fell into stockings hung on the mantle to dry. In Germany, St. Nikolaus Day is celebrated on December 6th, Nikolaus' reputed birthday.  Many children put a Nikolaus-Stiefel (Nikolaus boot) outside of the front door on the night of December 5th. St. Nikolaus fills the boot with sweets and gifts if the children were good and helpful all year.  If they were not, they will have a Rute (tree branch) instead!

I, for one, think we will survive, and I hope that along the way we can keep alive our experience with the flowering earth. For the bounty of nature is also one of the deep needs of man.?

Grape Creek Vineyards

Jeff?s Corner 7-18-14Since last weeks photos were such a hit, I thought I?d go to HEB and take some snaps of the grapes in the produce department. When I did, however, I was told to cease and desist. They thought I was undercover from Wal Mart, attempting to steal their trellising techniques.Thwarted, I decided to take some pics from the Montepulciano vineyard so you could see what was happening up on the hill. As you can see, the little pooters are doing quite well. They are too picture perfect not to share with you again this week.By the way, at the All Star break, our beloved Grape Creek Clusters are two games up on the Washington State Wannabees, and five ahead of the hated Napa Valley Nobodies. Andy Timmons? High Plains Harvesters are making a move, just six back. The Oregon Pinot Envies are in last place. More later, down the stretch... #jeffscorner #montepulciano #gcv #txwine

It's not a TOAD, it's a"Texas horned lizard"! Watch out! It's no myth.... they do have the ability to squirt an aimed stream of blood, for a distance of up to 5 ft, from the corners of their eyes, and mouths!

Arts Education Must Be Saved!

 Art, Music, Dance, and Drama can Drive Academic Achievement and are Key to Student Development.
"Years of research shows that Art Education provides almost everything,  that we as a nation, say we want for our children and demand from our schools: academic achievement, social and emotional development, civic engagement, and equitable opportunity. Involvement in the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skill. Arts learning can also improve motivation, concentration, confidence, and teamwork". - Fran Smith, Edutopia
