Small plot, high yield gardening : grow like a pro, save money, and eat well from your front (or back or side) yard 100% organic produce garden by Sal Gilbertie and Larry Sheehan
Organic gardening has become quite popular in recent years, and this book is a great guide to creating and maintaining your own organic garden in whatever space you may have available. It includes a wealth of information, big picture planning and organic philosophy stuff as well as little hints that can be extremely helpful (such as: grow onions or some variant around the edges of your garden to deter pests). Even the book itself has an earthy feel, with rich soil-colored text on creamy white pages. A treat for organic gardeners of all levels.

Kitchen garden : month by month by Alan Buckingham
This book is truly a step-by-step guide to growing your own food. It starts at the very beginning with planning and goes all the way through to the payoff of harvesting. Some of the tasks listed for the winter months are suitable for those lucky enough to have a home greenhouse or coldframe, but these are easily pushed back to spring thaw for those of us without. The most useful part of this book for me, though, is the Crop Planner. It includes detailed information about a variety of edibles, and I'll definitely be coming back to this section again.

A rainbow of stitches : embroidery and cross-stitch basics plus more than 1,000 motifs and 80 project ideas by Agnès Delage-Calvet ... [et al.] ; photography by Frédéric Lucano
Organized by color, this book offers a tremendous number of ideas for embroidery and cross-stitch projects and motifs. The designs range from cute to elegant, craftsy to modern, satisfying a wide range of tastes. I have been wanting to learn more about embroidery for awhile and I think this book will be a great place to start.
Blood pressure screening is available on the 3rd Monday of each month, 1:00-3:00PM in the Parkview Room of the Summit. This free service is provided by the Oakwood Healthcare System and sponsored by the Canton Seniors Center. No appointments are necessary.
For each level you will read writers from Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe, North America (includes Central America) and South America within 2010. Each level becomes progressively more difficult (i.e. more books to read to satisfy the requirements). Jakobsen provides a wonderful list of reading suggestions for each continent.
Fans of the Brian Setzer Orchestra will not be disappointed by this latest album, a soundtrack to a film that doesn't exist. It's what Setzer imagines might be the appropriate accompaniment to a throwback noir film, including blues, swing, and jazz tunes that feel like they could be classics. It's a fun exploration that provides plenty of opportunity for Setzer to show off his virtuosic guitar chops.
