Subject: RE: BS: Lessons Learned from Mom
Among other things:

If a car won't start, it's probably the battery.
Cook with herbs and spices.
Give a tired, hungry man some slack before he eats his dinner.
Get rid of the television.

This week I have been embroidering some tea towels for friends. This has brought back the memory of my mother sitting on the couch in the evening, sewing by hand. As she did, she would often stretch the needle and thread out all the way, then spin the needle to take the twists out of the thread. It is a gesture I will associate with her always.
