Congrats to Ethan - Poem: Hummingbird

Mark Morris and Ethan Iverson
Uh, er, hello there Ethan Iverson and Mark Morris.

Glad, Ethan, your Pepperland got such great reviews!

I remember Ethan was working on it on our Cruise Ship. 

Read this review in The Guardian.


New Directions is preparing for our program on Saturday.

DR KARL RICKELS will be at the Willow Grove Giant Supermarket from 1 to 2:30 pm.

Copies of his 2011 book A SERENDIPITOUS LIFE: FROM GERMAN POW TO AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIST will be available to purchase. He fought with Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, “The Desert Fox.”

Dr. Karl Rickels is the founder of the Mood and Anxiety Disorders Section at the University of Pennsylvania. He is a professor in the department of psychiatry and the Stuart and Emily B.H. Mudd Professor of Human Behavior and Reproduction.

In 2008, he was also awarded the William Osler Patient Oriented Research Award, which recognizes outstanding achievement for research in which the investigator directly interacts with human subjects. Dr. Rickels is known throughout the world as the leading expert in the treatment of anxiety disorders.
In his 575 publications and 9 books over more than 40 years, Dr. Rickels has made so many contributions to this treatment that he is recognized as the Dean of Psychopharmacology of anxiety disorders. As a testament to his extraordinary intellect, in his 80s and 90s, he remains an active researcher.

As founder of the Penn program in the department of obstetrics and gynecology which treats and recognizes the special needs of women with mental health issues, his contributions continue to affect the lives of his many grateful patients.

 Gave Robin Franklin a $25 gift card. Coffee, please, I asked her.

Told her I attended a recent lecture at the Upper Moreland Library about hummingbirds. And that I'd blog about it.

You think you know me
but do you really?

Red's my favorite color
but don't expect me
to perch on your new
Red Toyota Hybrid!

My feet weren't made for
perching. Can a Chinese
princess walk on
bound feet?

Your favorite foods are
spaghetti and meatballs.
Mine are gnats, flies,
wasps, aphids, beetles,
and for dessert wiggly
wobbly spiders.

How do you walk? You
pump your arms to
gather speed.

I steer with my tail.
Shake a tail feather,
sang Ike and Tina.

Bring out your feeder.
I remember where it is.
Do not be surprised
at my manners.

I chase away all comers.
The big squawking blue jays,
your adorable little chickadees
fine furry sparrows,
I push everyone away,
like the leader of your country.

In the fall when I leave town
my belly's as big as a
lollipop. Mexico here I
come! My compadres

Party time! Bring out
the treats. Save the
butterfly cocoon for
little me!

Ran outside in the rain to capture this orange poppy. Stunning!

Now that Jared Kushner is in hot water for his dealings with the Russians - nothing nefarious has been proven so far, I decided to do a little research on the Ivanka and Jared relationship.

Here's what Cosmo has to say.
