Looking for a different cookbook? A project called MaintainIT has published two very handy “cookbooks” on the topic of technology in libraries. They’re called cookbooks because they provide down-to-earth, step-by-step guides to such things as: locking down computers, using a computer maintenance checklist, implementing wireless networks, time and print management solutions. These cookbooks are actually fun to read. Take a look and print them out for free at

The senior luncheon that was held on April 15th at St. John in the Wilderness church hall saw around 11 people there. They all enjoyed a delicious roast pork dinner.

Four little piggies went to market...well, not yet. It’s that time of year. Francis Dumont has four really cute little piggies to raise this year. Believe it or not, one, which Francis has named Red Riding Hood, has long, curly red hair. He has two white, short hairs; one has been named Snow White and the other Wolfe. Number four is part red with white patches and almost as long hair as Red Riding Hood, so this one has been named Patches. Two of the piggies are promised to three different people.

How to age gracefully, thanks to Doris Nobel:

Middle age is when your memory is shorter, your experience is longer, your stamina is lower, and your forehead is higher.

A midlife crisis is when you’re willing to get up and give your seat to a lady, but you can’t.

Old age is when you lean over to pick something up off the floor and ask yourself if there is anything else you need to do while you are down there.

As people grow older, they generally become more quiet. But, of course, they have more to keep quiet about.
