Since the birthstone for September is the sapphire and the flower is the aster, we send out Rainbows-of-Sapphires-and-Asters to Scott Kelso and Cheryl Davies who celebrate their special days this week. Happy birthday, Cheryl and Scott!
We believe the MBTA Ready Ride is still operating in Wonder Valley, transporting you to any business in Twentynine Palms, but not on the Base. Pickup at your home is at 7 a.m. and drop off back at your home is at noon on Tuesdays and Fridays. On the first Wednesday of each month pickup is at the same time, but dropoff is at 1 p.m. Cost per ride for adults is $5; for seniors (60+) or disabled adults it’s $2. Call 760-366-2395 for further information or to schedule a ride.
Handy Hint: Plain old baking soda has a lot of uses. Two of the lesser-known ones are: Brush into pet beds and mattresses to zap odors, wait 15 minutes, then vacuum. And -- One pinch of baking soda will mellow any harsh flavors, like in bitter tea, and you’ll never taste it.
Today’s Thought: A reputation once broken may possibly be repaired, but the world will always keep its eyes on the spot where the crack was.
Until next time . . . remember to take time to enjoy the WONDERs all around us.
