Happy Lunar New Year

The Filipino, Vietnamese and Thai Catholic communities came together on Sunday for their annual multi-language mass and celebration - in theater, music and dance.

Make decorations from food

In days of yore (that is, sometime before department stores were invented) families often created their own holiday decorations. In modern times the art of homemade fun has not been lost, especially during the holidays. Making garlands with popcorn and cranberries or creating salt-dough figures and ornaments are great ways for children to spend time with their parents, grandparents, and caregivers. The kitchen is an overlooked source for craft materials for children. All of the ingredients in popcorn/cranberry garlands and salt-dough ornaments are natural and edible – if not exactly tasty – so there's no worry about toxicity.

Tim and Tracy Nodland made their first barrel of wine in 1999. Then they made another, and another, and another until the self-taught winemakers had 63 batches of wines to show for their passion.
