Spend a Week at the Sea of Galilee with the Grandmother of Herbal Medicine

Summer in GALILEEI'm inviting you spend a week reading a wonderful book by Juliette de Bairacli Levy, the Grandmother of Herbal Medicine - Summer in Galilee. You'll find her and her two toddlers irresistible as they explore the Sea of Galilee (in the modern State of Israel) together. Timely, filled with historical tales and emotional adventures, Summer in Galilee is a classic that is passed from hand to hand, generation to generation.

The author chronicles her visit to a Bedouin village and the trouble this causes both in the kibbutz where she lives and among the Bedouins. But with keen wit, steely nerve and kind heart, she manages to please everyone, including her readers, as she saves the day and mends frayed tempers. Join Juliette as she spends an eventful summer swimming in the waters, and the history, of the Sea of Galilee. She trains her observant eyes and lovely descriptive prose on the people, places, plants and animals around her. You will hold your breath as Juliette dares to traverse the forbidden militarized zone around the Jordan River in pursuit of a personal communion with this holiest of lands.

You’ll thrill as she and her children discover ancient treasure, be fascinated as she visits the tombs of Jewish mystics and, perhaps, scream in terror as she is visited in the dark of night by an enormous snake – only to breathe a sigh of relief when she is saved by her faithful Afghan hound.

Tim Horton Scored Twice

Any self respecting writer loves a good cup of coffee, and Canadian writers have a special fondness for one particular brand.

Tim Hortons is the most successful franchise in Canada. While you won't see one on every corner--yet--the popular coffee shops aren't hard to find. The phrase "double-double"--meaning "double cream, double sugar"--became so widespread because of Tim Hortons that the term was added to the Canadian Oxford Dictionary, 2nd edition.

The man behind the name was Miles Gilbert "Tim" Horton (1930-1974), a native of Cochrane, Ontario. The Hockey Hall of Fame inductee spent 24 seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL), most notably with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Tim Hortons franchise began with one shop that Horton himself opened in Hamilton, Ontario, in 1964. Today, there are more than 2,350 locations across Canada and a growing presence in the United States. Ron Joyce, Horton's partner and successor, established the Tim Horton Children's Foundation in 1975 to pay tribute to his late friend.

Although Tim Horton's life was cut short, his name lives on through his hockey legacy and his coffee franchise--a real double-double.
