Hi,

Welcome to my new subscribers! Thanks for signing up for my free e-zine.

Spring has finally arrived to Iowa. Our little apple trees and lilac bushes are ready to burst into bloom....I can't wait. But I did enjoy our long winter by joining my family on the ski slopes (yes, Iowa does have a few) and taking my first ski lessons. The two young friends helping me said I was a natural and it must be my Norwegian blood.

Speaking of Norwegians, have you ever wondered what they eat for breakfast? When I'm visiting my cousins in Norway, they think I come up with pretty strange combinations. My cousin, Greta, will tell you all about breakfast in Norway. http://www.norway-hei.com/norwegian-breakfast.html

Thanks to Pam Hutchins FGAA, from Australia, I've added her comprehensive article, with lots of photos, about culturing blue pearls. http://www.karipearls.com/blue-pearl.html

I've read how Kokichi Mikimoto used his pearls as "postwar healing ambassadors" so I was thrilled when Patty shared her story of Mikimoto's personal hospital visit to her and her mom when she was born in Tokyo. http://www.karipearls.com/gifts-from-mikimoto.html

Is bartering a lost art? Connie doesn't think so and suggested she and I practice it by trading pearls for wool crafting items. http://www.karipearls.com/bartering-pearls.html

I've had fifteen winners so far who have found my hidden dragonfly and pearl photo. Want to win free pearls? http://www.karipearls.com/pearl-treasure-hunt.html

Did you know that "He who humbles himself will be exalted?" I remind myself of that when I'm washing sheep's wool.

God Bless, Kari
