Recipe scanned from Mom's or Grandma's handwriting by 3DCarving, $30.00. My boyfriend's mother recently passed away and she used to love to cook. I ordered two of these (one for my boyfriend and one for his sister) which consisted of his late grandmother's family yeast roll recipe in his mother's handwriting. He is a culinary student so it was perfect! And the board brought him to tears. It came out beautifully. by deanna

The Last Station (2009) Starring: James McAvoy as Valentin Fedorovich Bulgakov, a private secretary; and Helen Mirren as Sophia Tolstay, Leo's wife. Contention focuses on a new will that the "Tolstoians" are attempting to persuade Leo to sign. It would place all of his copyrights into the public domain, supposedly leaving his family without adequate support. The maneuvering is seen through the eyes of Tolstoy's new secretary, who finds himself mediating between the two sides. (high res) by christine

Man has suppositions which have been filtered through a lens prepared by the evil one. Modern warfare has long ceased being about defense of home and family. All modern wars are fabrications for evil purposes. God Desires that we stop killing each other, we are all brothers and sisters. God is no respecter of persons as all of the people of the world are His Children. by jeanne
