Happy 25th To Benjamin!

Ben is like his dad and does magic with flowers. He has that gift of really seeing color and design. And feeling it, too. I think he will make a great landscape architect.

I am grateful for this youngest of our children. He brings up the rear in fine fashion, showing us all you don't need to even own a pair of jeans to be cool. And he added Olivia to our family, now that is wise. Happy birthday, dear son!

Last in The Korean Mannequin Series

I WIll Miss Beautiful Yewon!

Once in awhile you meet someone you know you knew long before you met them. And once in awhile you meet someone that just buys tape, ribbons and material, not for any reason, but just to look at them. Yewon, another one of our blessings from Seoul!

I Will Miss The Shi Heung Ward

Yes, Amazing Grace lives there with her parents and daughters, Cindy and Carol and Brother Jeon.

These two young men are baptized by Elder Lee and Elder Grant.

And the Primary sings for the baptism!

We are praying that their mother will also soon be baptized. They are loaded with baptismal gifts.

The Elders!

Naengmeon Noodles

Our friend, Sang Eui, recommended this restaurant as having the best naengmeon noodles he ever tasted. Well, how can you pass that up? These are cold noodles--I mean, really cold noodles--see the bits of ice floating in the broth, along with the chunk of Asian pear, sliced beef, pickled radish, cucumbers and boiled egg.
Add some spicy horseradish mustard to the broth and it's ready to eat.

A peek at the kitchen.

Here is the giant noodle making machine.

Noodle dough, ready to put into the machine

Stuff it in

Below is the big pot of boiling water, cooking the noodles.

The metal cylinder with gold on the end is where the dough is pressed into noodle shapes and falls into the hot boiling water below. Here the noodle man is scooping out the noodles with his colander.
