Crime de la Creme was used on the inside covers. <br /><br />The two example pages for the album used the stripes from the back of the signature page and Her Majesty as base papers. They were then layered with Royal Gardens and Tres Chic.

Instead of using the Ardex brand feather finish which had to be ordered, I used the Henry&#39;s brand feather finish found at our local hardware store. It mixes the same, with the ratio of 1:2 (water to powder.) At first I thought using a mudding pan would work for mixing, but I quickly switched to the temporary buckets. (Should have just followed Laura&#39;s directions there.) I applied about five coats of the feather finish, making sure to keep the surface as smooth as possible. In the previous post, the counters have a satin, textured look, but I was hoping to achieve a smooth glossy surface. After I had about five coats applied and it was all set, it was sanding time.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c757c30f970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"Sanding the counter top\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c757c30f970b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c757c30f970b-800wi\" title=\"Sanding the counter top\" /></span></a>To achieve the reflective surface, I went through a bunch of sandpaper. I used a prograde product, and I could tell the difference in sanding instantly. The paper was more durable (almost rubbery) and held its grit longer which produced a better sand. Invest in the good sandpaper! I started with 80 grit and moved through the ranks after going over the entire surface— 80, 120, 200, 500, 1500 and ended with 2000. Observing the surface transform from gray to reflective was worth all the dust and elbow grease.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">We wanted a food-safe seal, so a I applied a product by Ghostshield called Countertop Seal 660 (real catchy name.) It&#39;s a bit pricey at $70 for 16oz, but it works great. I applied four coats, using only about 10 oz. I mixed as directed, then covered the container after each use. I tested the finish by dripping some water over some areas and letting it sit for about 5 minutes. The water just beaded up on the surface, no penetration at all! Sweet.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Then it was time to wax. I applied a concrete wax by CHENG using a $5 drill mounted wax kit. It can be applied by hand as well. I&#39;m not sure if I like how the wax ended up as I don&#39;t have anything to compare it to. I wasn&#39;t impressed with the results, which were a bit streaky and sticky. Steel wool did help with the streakiness (0000#). Ghostshield does have a wax that you can buy in conjunction with their sealer. I&#39;m curious how that goes on in comparison.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Overall, I am happy with how the counters turned out. They look good, are durable, and didn&#39;t break the bank. If you don&#39;t want to go through the process of pouring a concrete slab, this is the next best thing! -Josh</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 8pt; background-color: #ffffff;\">Credits // Author: Josh Rhodes, Photography: Emma Chapman and Josh Rhodes.

I think I get in too much of a coffee drinking rut. But I seriously love the flavor, and knowing it&#39;s a great source of antioxidants doesn&#39;t hurt either. Of course you can easily just make a cup of hot or cold green tea or even a <a href=\"http://www.abeautifulmess.com/2013/03/green-tea-latte.html\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">green tea latte</span></a>. Recently I decided to challenge myself to think outside the box and find a few more ways to enjoy matcha green tea. I&#39;m excited to share my favorite five with you all!

It honestly tastes a lot like some of the fresh juices you can buy at health food stores (or if you have a juicer, maybe you make your own?). But you don&#39;t need any special equipment besides a blender.

I think I get in too much of a coffee drinking rut. But I seriously love the flavor, and knowing it&#39;s a great source of antioxidants doesn&#39;t hurt either. Of course you can easily just make a cup of hot or cold green tea or even a <a href=\"http://www.abeautifulmess.com/2013/03/green-tea-latte.html\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">green tea latte</span></a>.

I forget where I first heard about it, but I do remember thinking, &quot;That sounds interesting.&quot; And I&#39;ll pretty much try anything that I think sounds interesting. Why not? I will say though that I&#39;ve read some sources that recommend drinking this type of thing every morning in place of breakfast, which I do not agree with. I am not a dietitian, but this just doesn&#39;t strike me as a good idea (and I think you&#39;ll agree once you see the ingredient list). For me this is just a tasty alternative to coffee or plain green tea, but not something I would drink everyday.

         "content": "<p>The first major study of bicycle helmet effectiveness, and probably the most famous and most often quoted is the 1989 case-control study of the effectiveness of bicycle safety helmets by Thompson, Rivara and Thomas. This is the study that concluded that &quot;riders with helmets had an 85 percent reduction in their risk of head injury... and an 88 percent reduction in their risk of brain injury.&quot; These numbers have been repeated ever since by a variety of medical and insurance organizations and government agencies, despite the fact that &quot;later efforts to replicate those results found a weaker connection between helmets and head injuries.&quot; In fact, in 2013, in response to a petition from WABA, the&#0160;CDC and NHTSA <a href=\"http://greatergreaterwashington.org/post/19036/feds-will-stop-hyping-effectiveness-of-bike-helmets/\" target=\"_self\">agreed to remove these estimates</a> from their website.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"text-decoration: line-through;\">Now, in 2015</span>, [<strong>Update</strong>: this was re-printed in 2015, but the study actually dates to 1997. I apologize for the confustion]&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1067791/\" target=\"_self\">Thompson, Rivara and Thompson</a> <span style=\"text-decoration: line-through;\">have a new study out</span>&#0160; did another study in 1997 that showed no connection between helmet use and serious injury. In a review of questionnaires filled out by 3390 cyclist injured over a three year period, they determined that &quot;Risk for serious injury was not affected by helmet use (OR=0.9)...[and]...neck injury was not affected by helmet use.&quot; Instead they determined that</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p>Prevention of serious bicycle injuries cannot be accomplished through helmet use alone, and may require separation of cyclists from motor vehicles, and delaying cycling until children are developmentally ready.</p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p>Their other conclusions (looking at just the abstract,<span style=\"text-decoration: line-through;\"> because I don&#39;t have access to the full article</span>) include:</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>51% of injured cyclists wore helmets at the time of crash.</li>\r\n<li>Only 22.3% of patients had head injuries and 34% had facial injuries.</li>\r\n<li>Risk of serious injury <strong>was increased</strong> by collision with a motor vehicle (duh), biking faster than &gt;15 mph, young age (&lt;6 years), and age &gt;39 years.</li>\r\n<li>Risk of neck injury was increased in those struck by motor vehicles, hospitalized for any injury, and those who died.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p><strong>Update</strong>: The study does seem to have more support for the efficacy of helmets. It points out that only 1 out of 14 (7.1%) fatal crashes involved a helmeted cyclist, while 50.9% of non-fatal injury crashes did. And it notes that</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p>Head injuries constituted a much lower proportion of all injuries than in prior reports, including our previous case-control study...We have previously documented a more&#0160;than two thirds reduction in population based rates of emergency&#0160;department treated head injuries among children from a large&#0160;health maintenance organization over this period of time associated with increases in community wide helmet wearing rates.We believe these data provide further support for the effectiveness of community based helmet promotion programs.</p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p>Of course, it is possible that un-helmeted cyclists (who already demonstrate different behavior than others) are more likely to behave in ways that result in fatal crashes, like riding dangerously in traffic. While helmeted cyclists are more likely to be injured on trails. And they also show that helmets do nothing to prevent neck injuries and that those with neck injuries are 15 times more likely to die.</p>\r\n<p>So there&#39;s something for everyone here.&#0160;</p>",

         "renderedContent": "<p>The first major study of bicycle helmet effectiveness, and probably the most famous and most often quoted is the 1989 case-control study of the effectiveness of bicycle safety helmets by Thompson, Rivara and Thomas. This is the study that concluded that &quot;riders with helmets had an 85 percent reduction in their risk of head injury... and an 88 percent reduction in their risk of brain injury.&quot; These numbers have been repeated ever since by a variety of medical and insurance organizations and government agencies, despite the fact that &quot;later efforts to replicate those results found a weaker connection between helmets and head injuries.&quot; In fact, in 2013, in response to a petition from WABA, the&#0160;CDC and NHTSA <a href=\"http://greatergreaterwashington.org/post/19036/feds-will-stop-hyping-effectiveness-of-bike-helmets/\" target=\"_self\">agreed to remove these estimates</a> from their website.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"text-decoration: line-through;\">Now, in 2015</span>, [<strong>Update</strong>: this was re-printed in 2015, but the study actually dates to 1997. I apologize for the confustion]&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1067791/\" target=\"_self\">Thompson, Rivara and Thompson</a> <span style=\"text-decoration: line-through;\">have a new study out</span>&#0160; did another study in 1997 that showed no connection between helmet use and serious injury. In a review of questionnaires filled out by 3390 cyclist injured over a three year period, they determined that &quot;Risk for serious injury was not affected by helmet use (OR=0.9)...[and]...neck injury was not affected by helmet use.&quot; Instead they determined that</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p>Prevention of serious bicycle injuries cannot be accomplished through helmet use alone, and may require separation of cyclists from motor vehicles, and delaying cycling until children are developmentally ready.</p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p>Their other conclusions (looking at just the abstract,<span style=\"text-decoration: line-through;\"> because I don&#39;t have access to the full article</span>) include:</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>51% of injured cyclists wore helmets at the time of crash.</li>\r\n<li>Only 22.3% of patients had head injuries and 34% had facial injuries.</li>\r\n<li>Risk of serious injury <strong>was increased</strong> by collision with a motor vehicle (duh), biking faster than &gt;15 mph, young age (&lt;6 years), and age &gt;39 years.</li>\r\n<li>Risk of neck injury was increased in those struck by motor vehicles, hospitalized for any injury, and those who died.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p><strong>Update</strong>: The study does seem to have more support for the efficacy of helmets. It points out that only 1 out of 14 (7.1%) fatal crashes involved a helmeted cyclist, while 50.9% of non-fatal injury crashes did. And it notes that</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p>Head injuries constituted a much lower proportion of all injuries than in prior reports, including our previous case-control study...We have previously documented a more&#0160;than two thirds reduction in population based rates of emergency&#0160;department treated head injuries among children from a large&#0160;health maintenance organization over this period of time associated with increases in community wide helmet wearing rates.We believe these data provide further support for the effectiveness of community based helmet promotion programs.</p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p>Of course, it is possible that un-helmeted cyclists (who already demonstrate different behavior than others) are more likely to behave in ways that result in fatal crashes, like riding dangerously in traffic. While helmeted cyclists are more likely to be injured on trails. And they also show that helmets do nothing to prevent neck injuries and that those with neck injuries are 15 times more likely to die.</p>\r\n<p>So there&#39;s something for everyone here.&#0160;</p>",

The following story gives many helpful insights into French life and a certain May tradition. Enjoy, and&#0160;<em>merci beaucoup, Marie!</em></p>\r\n<p><strong>&quot;MOIS DE MARIE&quot;<br /></strong>an extract from Marie Houzelle’s novel&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1940333016/mdj-20\" target=\"_blank\">Tita</a></p>\r\n<p>“At ten past eight, (my sister) Coralie and I hang our baskets around our necks&#0160;and go to the garden to choose our flowers. Peonies, dahlias, sweet peas, narcissi.&#0160;Mother said we can take only those that are completely open, and where at least&#0160;one or two petals have started shriveling. I snip off the whole blossom… and we&#0160;pull the petals off into our baskets. Then, intoxicated by the surfeit of scents, the&#0160;sharp red ones, the acid yellow, the many shades of pink, the quiet white, we&#0160;stand among the rose bushes, fingering the supple membranes, the soft shallow&#0160;cups, warm from the afternoon sun.<br /><br />Soon the organ starts and we’re all on the move again, for the procession. In&#0160;front, four choirboys carry a statue of the Virgin Mary, and we follow… reciting&#0160;the rosary as we walk, one Our Father, ten Hail Mary’s and again, five times,&#0160;while the organ punctuates our prayers with crisp cheerful chords. After each&#0160;decade of the rosary, the bearers stop in front of a different side chapel, where&#0160;incense burns and lights shine on the statue. Then, as the rest of us pass the&#0160;chapel, singing, we throw our petals to the Virgin. I so love to sing, I tend to get&#0160;carried away and not pay attention to what I’m doing. But we need to be careful:&#0160;there are five decades, five stops in front of chapels, and it doesn’t look good if&#0160;we spend all our petals too soon and then have nothing to throw but air.</p>\r\n<p>For each stop there’s a different hymn but in between chapels we go back to <em>C’est&#0160;le mois de Marie</em>, where Mary’s compare to the spring, to a lily (pure), a violet&#0160;(humble) and a rose (loving). During the last decade, the Virgin is taken to the&#0160;middle of the chancel, and everybody faces her to recite her litany. In Latin, not&#0160;in French… The Latin invocations sound so much more thrilling: <em>Rosa mystica,&#0160;Turris eburnea, Domus aurea</em> … as if ivory, gold, morning were burned into the&#0160;Virgin’s substance. The Latin, the sweet scents, the songs waft me above the&#0160;ground, and I seem to swing there, light and swift.

The following story gives many helpful insights into French life and a certain May tradition. Enjoy, and&#0160;<em>merci beaucoup, Marie!</em></p>\r\n<p><strong>&quot;MOIS DE MARIE&quot;<br /></strong>an extract from Marie Houzelle’s novel&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1940333016/mdj-20\" target=\"_blank\">Tita</a></p>\r\n<p>“At ten past eight, (my sister) Coralie and I hang our baskets around our necks&#0160;and go to the garden to choose our flowers. Peonies, dahlias, sweet peas, narcissi.&#0160;Mother said we can take only those that are completely open, and where at least&#0160;one or two petals have started shriveling. I snip off the whole blossom… and we&#0160;pull the petals off into our baskets. Then, intoxicated by the surfeit of scents, the&#0160;sharp red ones, the acid yellow, the many shades of pink, the quiet white, we&#0160;stand among the rose bushes, fingering the supple membranes, the soft shallow&#0160;cups, warm from the afternoon sun.<br /><br />Soon the organ starts and we’re all on the move again, for the procession. In&#0160;front, four choirboys carry a statue of the Virgin Mary, and we follow… reciting&#0160;the rosary as we walk, one Our Father, ten Hail Mary’s and again, five times,&#0160;while the organ punctuates our prayers with crisp cheerful chords. After each&#0160;decade of the rosary, the bearers stop in front of a different side chapel, where&#0160;incense burns and lights shine on the statue. Then, as the rest of us pass the&#0160;chapel, singing, we throw our petals to the Virgin. I so love to sing, I tend to get&#0160;carried away and not pay attention to what I’m doing. But we need to be careful:&#0160;there are five decades, five stops in front of chapels, and it doesn’t look good if&#0160;we spend all our petals too soon and then have nothing to throw but air.</p>\r\n<p>For each stop there’s a different hymn but in between chapels we go back to <em>C’est&#0160;le mois de Marie</em>, where Mary’s compare to the spring, to a lily (pure), a violet&#0160;(humble) and a rose (loving). During the last decade, the Virgin is taken to the&#0160;middle of the chancel, and everybody faces her to recite her litany. In Latin, not&#0160;in French… The Latin invocations sound so much more thrilling: <em>Rosa mystica,&#0160;Turris eburnea, Domus aurea</em> … as if ivory, gold, morning were burned into the&#0160;Virgin’s substance. The Latin, the sweet scents, the songs waft me above the&#0160;ground, and I seem to swing there, light and swift. Giddy.<br /><br />Our baskets are empty now, so we can skip and romp through the narrow&#0160;winding street around the church and into the avenue, greeted as we pass by the&#0160;many older people who sit in cafes, or on benches and chairs outside their&#0160;houses, enjoying the fresh air and the action.

Abbiamo trovato belle strade, ben\r\n     segnalate con la doppia dicitura e i Greci guidano con prudenza e\r\n     rispettando i limiti, discorso a parte è Atene ma comunque siamo\r\n     sopravvissuti anche lì.</span></li>\r\n<li><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Attenzione quando affittate una\r\n     macchina: ve la danno con il pieno e vi caricano sul conto il pieno alla\r\n     riconsegna, quindi, contrariamente che da noi, le auto a noleggio vanno\r\n     lasciate con il serbatoio vuoto.</span></li>\r\n<li><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">La maggior parte dei locali,\r\n     musei compresi, non accetta le carte di credito e quindi bisogna prevedere\r\n     di portarsi dietro denaro contante, anche se i bancomat sono numerosi.</span></li>\r\n<li><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Si cena al ristorante, in due, con una\r\n     cifra variabile dai 20 ai 30 euro vino in caraffa incluso, bene e in abbondanza, per un pranzo veloce si spendono circa 10 euro. Noi abbiamo\r\n     privilegiato la carne perché il pesce … come si mangia da noi, non si\r\n     mangia da nessuna parte. Attenzione all’acqua minerale gassata che costa\r\n     più delle bibite. Solitamente l’acqua minerale naturale è inclusa nel\r\n     costo del coperto.</span></li>\r\n<li><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Tantissime spiagge attrezzate offrono\r\n     lettini e ombrelloni gratuiti, è sufficiente consumare qualcosa. Nelle spiagge dove si\r\n     pagano, le tariffe per due lettini e un ombrellone variano dai 5 ai 6 euro al\r\n     giorno</span></li>\r\n<li><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Non ci sono problemi ad avere\r\n     indicazioni perché tantissime persone parlano inglese o comunque riescono\r\n     a farsi capire molto bene. Male che vada tenete presente che scendendo da\r\n     Atene, in senso orario, lungo la costa il mare ve lo dovete trovare a\r\n     sinistra, salendo è a destra, se non è così: avete sbagliato strada … non ci si può perdere ;-)</span></li>\r\n<li><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">L’archeologia e la storia hanno rappresentato per noi le dolenti note, abituati ai fasti e all&#39;abbondanza di quello che abbiamo in Italia abbiamo trovato distese desolate di sassi che per nulla ricordano i fasti dell&#39;antichità: delusione</span></li>\r\n<li><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Il mare e i paesaggi: spettacolari, bellissimi con acqua calda e spiagge per tutti i gusti.</span></li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\"><strong>Il diario del viaggio:</strong></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Questo è stato il percorso lungo il quale abbiamo viaggiato in senso orario guardando la cartina:</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">&#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160;&#0160;<a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://maurobaricca.typepad.com/.a/6a00e553a49db9883401901ecc9ebf970b-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Itinerario\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e553a49db9883401901ecc9ebf970b\" src=\"http://maurobaricca.typepad.com/.a/6a00e553a49db9883401901ecc9ebf970b-320wi\" title=\"Itinerario\" /></a><br /><br /></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\"><strong>Partenza 31 luglio da Malpensa</strong></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Siamo partiti in serata da Malpensa arrivando ad Atene verso le 21.30 e abbiamo preso una stanza all&#39;&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.booking.com/hotel/gr/holidayinnathensatticaavenue.it.html?aid=356981;label=gog235jc-index-XX-XX-XX-brand-it-com;sid=356daead085bd590e5ccf766b8231648;dcid=1;origin=disamb;srhash=1651609377;srpos=1\" target=\"_self\">Holiday Inn</a>&#0160;nei pressi dell&#39;aeroporto, una struttura adatta per uno stop over, cena veloce e a nanna per essere pronti alla mattina del primo agosto a ritirare l&#39;auto e partire.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Il primo agosto siamo tornati in aeroporto per ritirare l&#39;auto all&#39; Avis e abbiamo avuto la prima sorpresa: avevamo prenotato un&#39;auto tipo Clio o similare che non avevano più, esaurite.

In questi due giorni ci siamo dedicati ad esplorare le belle spiaggie nei dintorni di Napflio, una cittadina che ha molte case e costruzioni che risalgono all&#39;epoca della dominazione veneziana; da vedere la&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.google.it/search?q=fortezza+palamidi&amp;client=safari&amp;rls=en&amp;tbm=isch&amp;tbo=u&amp;source=univ&amp;sa=X&amp;ei=JpEMUvOMG8bTtAaqloDQDg&amp;ved=0CDkQsAQ&amp;biw=1440&amp;bih=680\" target=\"_self\">poderosa Fortezza di Palamidi</a>&#0160;che domina la baia e da cui si gode di un panorama bellissimo.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">In marcia il 2 agosto attraversando la Lakonia, abbiamo seguito un percorso bellissimo con strade panoramiche che, attraverso Leonidio e Geraki, ci hanno portato nel territorio di&#0160;<a href=\"http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sparta\" target=\"_self\">Sparta</a>&#0160;oggi ridotta a pochi reperti e tanti sassi ma nel passato, dicono ;-), parecchio importante ... sarà! Questa strada è bellissima, la temperatura rispetto al livello del mare scende di circa 10 gradi perchè si sale in montagna per poi ridiscendere attraverso canaloni di roccia impressionanti, attraversando paesini pittoreschi che sembrano molto quelli del nostro sud. Abbiamo fatto tappa a&#0160;<a href=\"http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monemvasia\" target=\"_self\">Monemvasia</a>,&#0160;un paesino che oltre ad essere la patria di nascita della Malvasia (vero!) ha un&#39;imponente fortezza che è stata sotto la dominazione di Bizantini, Turchi e Veneziani. Vale la gita anche se il luogo oltre alla fortezza non offre nulla. </span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Proseguendo su una strada interna panoramica siamo arrivati alla seconda tappa del nostro viaggio, <strong>3 e 4 agosto</strong>: la splendida &#0160;<a href=\"http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cervi_(Grecia)\" target=\"_self\">Isola di Elafonissos</a>&#0160;a soli 300 mt dalla terraferma. Si raggiunge con un traghetto che parte ogni mezz&#39;ora, il costo per due persone e l&#39;auto è di 12 euro.

Passare qualche giorno ad Elafonissos rintempra lo spirito perchè è un posto con spiaggie meravigliose.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">&#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160;&#0160;<a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://maurobaricca.typepad.com/.a/6a00e553a49db9883401901ecd269a970b-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"6 elafonissos\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e553a49db9883401901ecd269a970b\" src=\"http://maurobaricca.typepad.com/.a/6a00e553a49db9883401901ecd269a970b-320wi\" title=\"6 elafonissos\" /></a><br />Tutta la vita sociale si svolge nel piccolo paese dove c&#39;è il porto che ha diverse taverne, tutte sul mare dove si può godere il tramonto mentre si cena. Elafonissos oltre al mare e alle due splendide spiaggie di sabbia finissima non ha nulla ma ... vale assolutamente il viaggio e la sosta.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">5 agosto, si riparte. L&#39;itinerario ci porta fino al Mani attraverso una lunga strada provinciale che costeggia il mare per poi addentrarsi in una campagna fertile coltivata ad agrumeti e olivi che ci portano fino a&#0160;<a href=\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyrgos_Dirou\" target=\"_self\">Pyrgos Dirou</a>,&#0160;famosa per le grotte che si percorrono a bordo di un guscio di noce e che rappresentano l&#39;attrattiva più importante della regione.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">&#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160; &#0160;&#0160;<a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://maurobaricca.typepad.com/.a/6a00e553a49db9883401901ece0fd5970b-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"7 grotte\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e553a49db9883401901ece0fd5970b\" src=\"http://maurobaricca.typepad.com/.a/6a00e553a49db9883401901ece0fd5970b-320wi\" title=\"7 grotte\" /></a><br /><br /></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Le abbiamo visitate e si, sono carine, ma il prezzo pagato 12 euro a persona, non vale la visita soprattutto perchè la guida che conduceva il nostro barchino parlava solo greco e non si poteva usare il linguaggio dei segni altrimenti sbattevamo la testa contro il soffitto molto basso ;-)</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Il viaggio è proseguito per la nostra terza tappa:&#0160;<a href=\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kardamyli\" target=\"_self\">Karadamyli</a>&#0160; in Messenia dove abbiamo soggiornato il <strong>5,6 e 7 agosto</strong> da&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.booking.com/hotel/gr/stella-rooms.it.html?aid=356981;label=gog235jc-index-XX-XX-XX-brand-it-com;sid=356daead085bd590e5ccf766b8231648;dcid=1;origin=disamb;srhash=3639464553;srpos=1\" target=\"_self\">Stella</a>,&#0160;una simpaticissima signora greca che non parla una parola d&#39;inglese e non accetta le carte di credito, &#0160;comunica sempre sorridendo e dicendo &quot;okkay okkay&quot; mostrando il pollice come nei telefilm americani. La sistemazione era un po&#39; spartana ma pulita e in posizione strategica rispetto alle attrattive della zona. Stella prepara delle colazioni eccellenti e ti vizia dandoti tutti i giorni frutta fresca e dolci fatti in casa. Abbiamo esplorato la costa bellissima con calette rocciose e un mare stupendo, nel paesino non ci sono attrattive particolari se non alcune taverne poste a strapiombo sul mare da dove, cenando, si godono tramonti spettacolari. Nei dintorni ci sono un sacco di piste e sentieri per passeggiate a piedi all&#39;interno ma noi ci siamo limitati a goderci il mare fantastico.

Non è stata una grande scelta logistica perchè la posizione è un po&#39; decentrata rispetto alle attrattive della zona e soprattutto il personale ci ha inquietato: per essere gentili erano gentili ma di una tristezza unica, ci sembrava di essere alla presenza di un gruppo di &quot;diurni&quot; che dopo aver servito i loro padroni vampiri durante la notte arrotondavano lo stipendio gestendo l&#39;hotel, accettano però le carte di credito. Comunque è stata una buona base per esplorare i dintorni e in particolare le fortezze di Koroni e Methoni conosciute in passato come &quot;gli occhi della Serenissima&quot; che sorvegliavano il Mediterraneo ed erano base navale e commerciale di Venezia, in particolare Methoni ci è piaciuta molto: imponente e maestosa, protesa sul mare a guardia della costa.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">\r\n<a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://maurobaricca.typepad.com/.a/6a00e553a49db9883401901ece3805970b-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"10 methoni\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e553a49db9883401901ece3805970b\" src=\"http://maurobaricca.typepad.com/.a/6a00e553a49db9883401901ece3805970b-320wi\" title=\"10 methoni\" />\r\n<br /></a>Durante il soggiorno in questa zona abbiamo esplorato tutta la costa fino a Pylos e Gialova nella&#0160;<a href=\"http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Navarino_(Grecia)\" target=\"_self\">Baia di Navarino</a>&#0160;che ha spiaggie bellissime sia sabbiose che rocciose con un mare caldo che è uno spettacolo.

Abbiamo trovato belle strade, ben\r\n     segnalate con la doppia dicitura e i Greci guidano con prudenza e\r\n     rispettando i limiti, discorso a parte è Atene ma comunque siamo\r\n     sopravvissuti anche lì.</span></li>\r\n<li><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Attenzione quando affittate una\r\n     macchina: ve la danno con il pieno e vi caricano sul conto il pieno alla\r\n     riconsegna, quindi, contrariamente che da noi, le auto a noleggio vanno\r\n     lasciate con il serbatoio vuoto.</span></li>\r\n<li><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">La maggior parte dei locali,\r\n     musei compresi, non accetta le carte di credito e quindi bisogna prevedere\r\n     di portarsi dietro denaro contante, anche se i bancomat sono numerosi.</span></li>\r\n<li><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Si cena al ristorante, in due, con una\r\n     cifra variabile dai 20 ai 30 euro vino in caraffa incluso, bene e in abbondanza, per un pranzo veloce si spendono circa 10 euro. Noi abbiamo\r\n     privilegiato la carne perché il pesce … come si mangia da noi, non si\r\n     mangia da nessuna parte. Attenzione all’acqua minerale gassata che costa\r\n     più delle bibite.

Non è stata una grande scelta logistica perchè la posizione è un po&#39; decentrata rispetto alle attrattive della zona e soprattutto il personale ci ha inquietato: per essere gentili erano gentili ma di una tristezza unica, ci sembrava di essere alla presenza di un gruppo di &quot;diurni&quot; che dopo aver servito i loro padroni vampiri durante la notte arrotondavano lo stipendio gestendo l&#39;hotel, accettano però le carte di credito. Comunque è stata una buona base per esplorare i dintorni e in particolare le fortezze di Koroni e Methoni conosciute in passato come &quot;gli occhi della Serenissima&quot; che sorvegliavano il Mediterraneo ed erano base navale e commerciale di Venezia, in particolare Methoni ci è piaciuta molto: imponente e maestosa, protesa sul mare a guardia della costa.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">\r\n<a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://maurobaricca.typepad.com/.a/6a00e553a49db9883401901ece3805970b-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"10 methoni\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e553a49db9883401901ece3805970b\" src=\"http://maurobaricca.typepad.com/.a/6a00e553a49db9883401901ece3805970b-320wi\" title=\"10 methoni\" />\r\n<br /></a>Durante il soggiorno in questa zona abbiamo esplorato tutta la costa fino a Pylos e Gialova nella&#0160;<a href=\"http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Navarino_(Grecia)\" target=\"_self\">Baia di Navarino</a>&#0160;che ha spiaggie bellissime sia sabbiose che rocciose con un mare caldo che è uno spettacolo.

Ginsberg is a former President and board member of CEDC, while the others are current board members, with Crawford serving as President.</p>\r\n<p>The findings include that all four failed to provide written disclosures of their financial interest in the Ginsberg’s huge new project in Ghent, while it was under review by CEDC.</p>\r\n<p>Perhaps most explosively, the report notes that Sherwood’s bank “provided Ginsberg Foods&#0160;with two loans totaling $9.5 million for its proposed expansion project” using the CEDC&#0160;property as “collateral for the loans.” The ABO writes:</p>\r\n<blockquote><em>“A review of meeting minutes since April 2014 show that Mr. Sherwood was present at seven&#0160;of the twelve board and Executive Committee meetings when the Ginsberg Foods project was&#0160;discussed. However, there is no record of Mr. Sherwood disclosing his interest in the&#0160;project during these meetings. Of more concern, Mr. Sherwood voted to sell CEDC’s property&#0160;to Ginsberg Foods. In our interview, Mr. Sherwood acknowledged he did not act as a board&#0160;member who had a potential conflict of interest. He stated that in retrospect he should&#0160;have recused himself from the vote.”</em></blockquote>\r\n<p>Crawford, whose firm has performed extensive engineering and permitting work for&#0160;Ginsberg’s, was “present at 18 of the 23 board and Executive Committee meetings at which&#0160;the Ginsberg Foods project was discussed.” Moreover, the ABO found “found instances in&#0160;meeting minutes where Mr. Crawford did participate in discussions and voted on issues&#0160;related to the project.” In addition, the State observes that “the Ginsberg Foods loan terms are more favorable than the majority of the other loans,” but finds that CEDC’s loose loan guidelines allow that practice.</p>\r\n<p>In addition, the State investigation found that Crawford participated in email discussions about Ginsberg’s, including communications with the company about facilitating “tax increment financing (TIF) for infrastructure costs of the project.” Emails also showed that Crawford argued for and facilitated a meeting “at the offices of Ginsberg Foods with representatives from a public relations firm (Behan Communications),” which was hired by him and CEDC Executive Director Ken Flood without Board approval.</p>\r\n<div class=\"photo-wrap photo-xid-6a00d83454ca3969e201b8d10aac70970c photo-full \" id=\"photo-xid-6a00d83454ca3969e201b8d10aac70970c\" style=\"display: inline-block;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.sampratt.com/.a/6a00d83454ca3969e201b8d10aac70970c-pi\"><img alt=\"image from www.sampratt.com\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83454ca3969e201b8d10aac70970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.sampratt.com/.a/6a00d83454ca3969e201b8d10aac70970c-800wi\" title=\"image from www.sampratt.com\" /></a>\r\n<div class=\"photo-caption caption-xid-6a00d83454ca3969e201b8d10aac70970c\" id=\"caption-xid-6a00d83454ca3969e201b8d10aac70970c\">A CEDC board meeting in 2014</div>\r\n</div>\r\n<p>As the beneficiary of a separate $400,000 loan from CEDC, followed by an eyebrow-raising $1 deal with CEDC to&#0160;acquire &#0160;28 acres of land on Route 9H, Ginsberg himself was present at an un-announced Executive&#0160;Committee meeting “where the project was discussed prior to his resignation,” according to&#0160;the State report.</p>\r\n<p>Better, in turn, was paid&#0160;$22,375 in 2014 “to negotiate the [Columbia County] IDA’s financial assistance package&#0160;with Ginsberg Foods… Mr.&#0160;Better was present at four of the nine&#0160;board meetings during 2014 when the project was discussed.” The State notes that Crawford was the one who proposed Better as “the project manager for the Ginsberg Foods project.”</p>\r\n<p>The report concludes:</p>\r\n<blockquote><em>“We find the payments to Mr. Better by the CCIDA to be a questionable use of CCIDA funds. There is no indication why the services could not be provided by the CCIDA, either by the executive director or either of the two existing legal counsels contracted by the CCIDA. There is no written contract between the CCIDA and Mr. Better, or any records to indicate what services were to be rendered or the fees to be charged. Further, a review of the invoices to the CCIDA show he was paid for calls and meetings with individuals that do not appear to be related to CCIDA’s financial assistance package. For example, there are charges for phone calls to Crawford &amp; Associates including to David Crawford …&#0160;not related to the CCIDA’s financial&#0160;assistance.”</em></blockquote>\r\n<p>Looking at the bigger picture, the ABO’s interviews with CEDC Executive Committee members revealed a lack of awareness and concerns about conflict of interest, with “most indicat[ing] that it is not uncommon for one or more board members to have potential conflicts of interest regarding particular projects or loans,” and that they “do not think it is necessary to always disclose potential conflicts. None of the Executive Committee members were aware of the requirement in the CEDC Code of Ethics for a written statement disclosing a member’s financial interest in a project.”</p>\r\n<p>Overall, “it is troubling that this lack of disclosure is considered routine with other projects and loans. This lack of disclosure and transparency inhibits the public’s trust and confidence concerning board actions,” the ABO concludes.</p>\r\n<p>Ironically, the denial of the project by the Ghent Planning Board may have saved CEDC from further criticism, as the State says that “no harm has yet arisen from the board’s failure to follow its own policies since the Ginsberg Foods expansion project was not approved by the Ghent Planning Board.”</p>\r\n<p>So if Ginsberg’s lawsuit against the Planning Board is successful, that would appear to put CEDC back in hot water.</p>\r\n<p>Meanwhile, the State also takes CEDC to task for a lack of openness, transparency and record-keeping.</p>\r\n<p>Citing Section 102(2) of Public Officers Law , the ABO found instances where CEDC failed to meet requirements for “public bodies to provide advance public notice of meetings, allow for public access to meetings, and formally document and record meeting minutes.” This includes committees and subcommittees, such as CEDC’s Loan Committee and Executive Committee, whose proceedings “CEDC does not provide public notice of… or allow public access to these meetings.”</p>\r\n<p>Moreover, CEDC “does not maintain meeting minutes for its Loan Committee [and] did not maintain meeting minutes for all of its Executive Committee meetings in 2014.”</p>\r\n<p>In relation to the Ginsberg $1 land sale, the State concluded that a&#0160;July 29, 2014 executive session to did “not appear to&#0160;be appropriate.”</p>\r\n<p>The ABO investigation was prompted by a complaint filed by citizens group GhenCANN, led by resident Patti Matheney, which has been been watchdogging the Ginsberg’s project.

This lack of disclosure and transparency inhibits the public’s trust and confidence concerning board actions,” the ABO concludes.</p>\r\n<p>Ironically, the denial of the project by the Ghent Planning Board may have saved CEDC from further criticism, as the State says that “no harm has yet arisen from the board’s failure to follow its own policies since the Ginsberg Foods expansion project was not approved by the Ghent Planning Board.”</p>\r\n<p>So if Ginsberg’s lawsuit against the Planning Board is successful, that would appear to put CEDC back in hot water.</p>\r\n<p>Meanwhile, the State also takes CEDC to task for a lack of openness, transparency and record-keeping.</p>\r\n<p>Citing Section 102(2) of Public Officers Law , the ABO found instances where CEDC failed to meet requirements for “public bodies to provide advance public notice of meetings, allow for public access to meetings, and formally document and record meeting minutes.” This includes committees and subcommittees, such as CEDC’s Loan Committee and Executive Committee, whose proceedings “CEDC does not provide public notice of… or allow public access to these meetings.”</p>\r\n<p>Moreover, CEDC “does not maintain meeting minutes for its Loan Committee [and] did not maintain meeting minutes for all of its Executive Committee meetings in 2014.”</p>\r\n<p>In relation to the Ginsberg $1 land sale, the State concluded that a&#0160;July 29, 2014 executive session to did “not appear to&#0160;be appropriate.”</p>\r\n<p>The ABO investigation was prompted by a complaint filed by citizens group GhenCANN, led by resident Patti Matheney, which has been been watchdogging the Ginsberg’s project.

You did GREAT in figuring out just what was going on in the Joseph and the Jealous Brothers story.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\"> First, you learned what sheaves are, why Jacob got to have two wives (Leah and Rachel), what it means when somebody&#39;s &quot;rebuked&quot; and what the cistern was that Joseph&#39;s brothers dumped him into .. before they sold him.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">THEN, you got how the story relates to you. Who hasn&#39;t felt some jealousy among brothers and sisters? Who hasn&#39;t secretly wanted to sell one of them off? Who hasn&#39;t wondered if her parents loved her sister more than her?&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">Yeah, you totally got that this story is about people being human beings and about God dealing with them. If you read further in the story you find out that because Joseph stayed faithful to God even when he was carted off to a foreign country and spent time in jail for something that wasn&#39;t his fault, he was lifted up to a very high position -- and from that position he could help his brothers when they were in trouble. He forgave them and saved their lives.

You did GREAT in figuring out just what was going on in the Joseph and the Jealous Brothers story.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\"> First, you learned what sheaves are, why Jacob got to have two wives (Leah and Rachel), what it means when somebody&#39;s &quot;rebuked&quot; and what the cistern was that Joseph&#39;s brothers dumped him into .. before they sold him.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">THEN, you got how the story relates to you. Who hasn&#39;t felt some jealousy among brothers and sisters? Who hasn&#39;t secretly wanted to sell one of them off? Who hasn&#39;t wondered if her parents loved her sister more than her?&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">Yeah, you totally got that this story is about people being human beings and about God dealing with them. If you read further in the story you find out that because Joseph stayed faithful to God even when he was carted off to a foreign country and spent time in jail for something that wasn&#39;t his fault, he was lifted up to a very high position -- and from that position he could help his brothers when they were in trouble. He forgave them and saved their lives. Great story.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">Let&#39;s take a look at another one, just so we get the feel for how to approach a piece of Scripture that&#39;s actually about you.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; 1. Before Tuesday, read I Samuel, chapter 1, verses 1 through 8 (I Samuel 1:1-8)</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * You can pretty much skip the whole &#39;who was the son of who part.&#39; The important characters are:</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * Elkanah</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * Peninnah</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * Hannah</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; 2. Be sure you understand what&#39;s going on.

We filled 16 yard refuse bags! And I hauled a few more bags worth to the bottom of the ravine.</p>\r\n<p>I cleaned up a lot of willow branches from the deck and wildflower garden. The wind chime that Mother&#39;s friends gave to Joe was making all kinds of noise as I made the first pass on the deck and I could hear Mom, &quot;You&#39;re Not Doing It Right.&quot; &quot;I&#39;m doing it MY way, Mom!&quot; (We had a little back-and-forth.)</p>\r\n<p>As I was working in the wildflower garden (dutchmen&#39;s breeches are all but done, dogtooth violets are appearing, Virginia bluebells are full of buds), I remembered when Mom &amp; Joe came to Oregon in May of &#39;85 to meet Katie for the first time. Mom had just begun that project and it was the first year she could enjoy the &quot;flowers&quot; of her labor -- she was missing some of the show because Spring (most wildflowers put on a very short show). She remarked that the garden would bloom only 18 more times before Katie graduated from high school, and didn&#39;t that seem like... <em>not very many??</em>&#0160;And now it&#39;s already been 30!</p>\r\n<p>The kids had a blast. We had a cookout, ate a ton of good food. I even rode my bike. And got a little knitting done to round out the day.

According to CEO Paul Allen, the company aims to increase the latter figure to 75 by the end of 2015. It is also planning to open corporate-owned stores, with five locations planned by summer 2015.</p>",
