Check Out This Video…….. Too Funny!

It is never too early to start thinking about what we should read in April when we invite “the men” to read along with us. We need to give them a head start! I was thinking that The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks (Lisa recommendation) could be an interesting choice as we will have doctors, attorneys, nurses, social workers and of course patients at the meeting. We would be able to get all kinds of point of views. Henrietta Lacks was treated for cervical cancer at Johns Hopkins in 1951. During her treatment, tissue samples were removed from her cervix and became known as HeLa cells. These cells are still being used in medical research today yet her family knew nothing about it and received no compensation. Fair…. or not?

Clearly Ed Steiner has been giving this a lot of thought. Here is a peak into the Steiner home! YOU MUST CHECK OUT HIS YOUTUBE VIDEO BELOW !!!!!!!!

  2. Recommendation for “men night out”. The Last Ember by Daniel Levin…here is a review:

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    “The Last Ember” is a thrill ride, a stay-up-all-nighter, that beats Dan Brown at his own game, with an shocker of an ending straight out of Indiana Jones.

    Although “The Last Ember” is fiction, at times far-fetched, it is based on the horrifying fact that priceless artifacts in Jerusalem are being destroyed on the Temple Mount by the Islamic Wakf. Archaeological treasures are defaced, strata ground up, and relics dumped like so much garbage. This part of the novel is absolutely true. Unfortunately, the U.N. in real life is less attentive to this destruction than Daniel Levin’s fictitious heroes.

    This book is both entertaining and a means of raising awareness of the precious heritage that is being carelessly and deliberately obliterated on the Temple Mount.
