Welcome to Tea Toast & Trivia. Thanks for listening in. Frances and I are in the sewing room again, with the material stacked on one side of the room and on the other, the finished costumes for an upcoming dance performance. It’s exciting to see the progress, week to week on the colourful tutus and jazz outfits. This week, our conversations turned to my mother’s recollection of the Ladies’ Aid Society. As background, Ladies’ Aid Societies were formed during the American Civil War. Women worked tirelessly to provide supplies to soldiers on the battlefield and to care for sick and wounded soldiers. They raised money, sewed quilts and provided sanitary supplies to solders to stop the spread of disease. When the war was over, many Ladies’ Aid Societies continued their good work. Today, my mother shares her memories of the Ladies’ Aid Society of her community that worked together in the 1930’s and 1940’s. So put the kettle on and add to the discussion. Frances and I look forward to your insights on TeaToastTrivia.com. Link in on my bio. #Community #LadiesAid #Frances #teatoasttrivia

A window painting “I take pleasure in my transformations. I look quiet and consistent, but few know how many women there are in me.” Anais Nin Cameras always remind me to look around, see the creativity that comes through everything we do. An unknown artist that transformed a window. #window #transformations
Welcome to Tea, Toast and Trivia. Thank you for listening in. Dave Astor and I are once again bridging the 3,923 kilometers between New Jersey to Vancouver. The book on top of my 2020 stack of books, is Dave Astor’s Fascinating Facts About Famous Fiction Authors and the Greatest Novels of All Time: The Book Lover’s Guide to Literary Trivia. Dave has a marvelous way of going deep to find the story that is hidden in the folds of history. In Dave’s most recent post, “More Than Zero Interest in Zero-Year Novels”, he featured some of his favorite (not necessarily the best) novels that were published in 1970, 1920, 1870, and various other years ending in that big ol’ round number of zero.
