As a first-time homeowner and big fan of DIY, I am desperate for good solid advice on how to get things done in and around our new home. How exactly do you install an interior door? What’s the best way to choose paint colors? How long should the grass be cut? How often? Can we build a deck ourselves? How hard is it really? Above all of these concerns is the big question – How will our home and landscaping best fit our family’s personality and lifestyle? How do we want to live?

After listening to Joan Baez sing a wonderful rendition of the classic "And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda", my interest in the Dardanelles Campaign in the Turkish theater during WWI was sparked.

I checked out two new books on this subject and I suggest reading them both as I did. They are Dardanelles Disaster: Winston Churchill's Greatest Failure by Dan Van der Vat and Gallipoli: the End of the Myth by Robin Prior.

Also watch the library's DVD Gallipoli which is highly acclaimed and one of Mel Gibson's first movies.

When Australian reporter, Sarah Turnbull, was in her twenties she decided to take a year long leave of absence from her job and travel around Europe. While in Romania she had a chance encounter with a French attorney named Frederic. They had only one dinner together in a group of other people, but hit it off, and Frederic invited Sarah to visit him for a week or two in Paris. She hadn’t planned on going to Paris – but, her logic was that she was out for adventure; she liked him, so why not pursue it and see where it took her.
