For the past 25 years children have been entering the doors of the Foothill Progressive Montessori School and embarking on an academic adventure that promotes learning in a kind and calming environment, with an international flair. “We started with kindergarten through sixth grade,” said principal and founder Padmini Joseph. Joseph had taught in La Cañada when she decided to open the school after several parents approached her with the idea. “I was going to open the school in Redondo Beach, but so many parents said they could not travel that far,” she said.

The pen may be mightier than the sword but it also seems mightier than dollars, or at least more persuasive. Crescenta Valley High School English teacher Jamie Arrow gave her ninth and 12th grade classes an assignment to write to companies encouraging them to get involved with tsunami disaster relief in Southeast Asia. Students were required to research the company and write to a specific person in charge. Many students wrote to the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, which is headquartered in Los Angeles.

About 5,000 years ago, Chinese Emperor Shen Nung discovered that boiling water made it safe to drink. A plant called Camellia sinensis had leaves that fell into his boiling water. From that incident, different teas were discovered: Black, Oolong, White, and Puerh. There are now herbal teas and flavored teas. Sri Lanka and India produce ½ of the world?s production of tea. Black tea is grown in S. Carolina and Hawaii. In the 1600s tea rituals started; in the 1800s England had her first tea ceremonies.

Every so often I post like crazy on Facebook. This week, my Facebook friends were totally digging the belly dance photos from cousin Ruthie's wedding. Ruthie is an amazing woman who, in her early 20s, decided to raise her niece and nephew after their own mom died. And now, years later, she has found her soul mate, the love of her life, in Leonel. Leonel, among other things, is a drummer. He performs. He teaches drumming. He leads drum circles. Many of his friends are musicians and dancers.

Thoughts From Dr. Joe by Dr. Joe Puglia I have vivid memories of John F. Kennedy's Inaugural Address, January 20, 1961. One line, actually the last, has resonated within my psyche, echoing a constant reminder that praying for 'Divine Intervention' does not substitute for simple acts of kindness. President Kennedy professed the thought, "?let us go forth?asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth, God's work must truly be our own." It's sort of like the Old Persian saying, "Trust in God, but tie your camel."

I was out and about doing chores for Kaitzer; subsequently I had a late start writing “Thoughts from Dr. Joe.” Since my brain was tapped out, I had no clue what subject matter to attempt to write about. I crossed Gould en route to Starbucks and came face-to-face with a picture of a child holding an ice cream cone with a Kalashnikov rifle precariously balanced over his right shoulder. The boy highlighted the cover story, “The Face of War,” in that day's Los Angeles Times. The kid was no more than 10. I didn't want to write about this.
