    My Greatest Job

    While in Houston, towards the end of my career and old "life", my Aunt, my favorite Aunt, approached me and asked me if I would come to work for her and my Uncle.  They had retired as missionaries in Hong Kong, his time spent translating Baptist Hymnals into Chinese, and...

    OMG

    This is going to sound like a commercial, but I really love the faceted parcels of gemstones from JTV.  I've gotten 2.  They're relatively cheap, and I LOVE when they arrive and I get to sort thru them and see what I've gotten.  It's like a treasure hunt.  I...

    Shirley Said: 'Diamonds Are Forever!'

    These are simply a must for this little poor girl! You'll make a fine impression on me with a few diamonds! No, I collect polished stones, all kinds, crystals. They are fascinating, and I hope to go on a crystal shining course just as soon as I can raise the money for it!

    I Prefer Them Raw

    I don't like it when crystals have been overly man handled. I understand that most are, but I prefer when at least some of the natural state is preserved. I feel the vibrations of the stone better when it isn't tumbled or polished to ****. But all in all stones are gorgeous...
