10 February 2010 and a Mystery Question

I'm going to be gone all day tomorrow, at the National Jewish Hospital in Denver again with Mom making the rounds of doctors visits. Everything is fine, in fact, we love how thorough they are, we're just doing the follow-up visits to last week's MRI of her heart.

Along with my other 'little' business project, I've been working on my murder mystery. I've begun playing with a new twist in the plot and there is a question that I know at least one of you very smart people out there will know the answer to:

If I wanted to find out how long a local business in a small village had been in business, for instance, or to look up their business license to see whose name was listed there, would I go to the library, the Chamber of Commerce, or the municipal government offices?

Anyone know the answer?

My husband loves looking up stuff like that -- so I'm pretty sure it's the municipal government offices - the county or city should have all of that info....

I agree with municipal government offices AND most are online!

Enjoy your day away.

Thank you both for your help! I'm going to check out the online sites tomorrow to see if I can find what I'm looking for and then get writing!

I, too, would guess the municipal gov't offices.

Good luck!

When our spirit hungers

The precocious toddler’s interest in talking to her mother grew in insistence as the gathered group settled in for an hour of silent prayer. Shushing didn’t work, so the mother led her child into an adjoining room where she would still be part of the sanctuary, but sound would be dampened. Despite the closed door and heavy glass walls, the child’s fervent desire to speak with her mother was still audible.
I said a prayer for the patient mother determined to stay, and for the child who was either tired or hungry or impatient for Mom’s undivided attention. And then tried to bring my wandering thoughts back to prayer. I had come to Adoration with my own pressing need for answers.
Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed a growing emptiness in my heart. A void, as if something is missing. It’s not psychological. Not physical. After doing an internal check, I determined it’s a spiritual void that I’m experiencing.
No, I’m not doubting God, his existence or goodness. I have full confidence in…

Open to the Spirit - Book Review

Open to the Sprit is like reading a letter from a friend. McKnight writes a very accessible introduction to the Holy Spirit and its role in our spiritual life. McKnight uses several stories from his life and others to share how the Holy Spirit consoles and deepens our daily spiritual walk. A terrific book for those seeking an introduction to a relationship with the Holy Spirit.

Simple Spinach and Kale Fettucine

On Wednesday I picked up my first box of organic from the High Country Conservation Center’s Summit CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Way back in February, I bought a ‘share’ in this summer’s crop, which entitles me to a weekly box of organic vegetables from mid-June through October.

Now that the vegetables have arrived, I have two reactions: 1) Wow! This is so exciting! Look at these beautiful vegetables, I’m going to be so healthy. 2) Yikes! What am I going to do with four bags of greens?

For the next sixteen weeks, I want to share my culinary adventures as I cook my way through my CSA box each week. Even if you don’t subscribe to the CSA share, you’ll enjoy these recipes which focus on our summer bounty. I hope you’ll also be inspired to try more vegetable-centered meals. Now, back to those four bags of greens! 

This week’s recipe polished off two of the bags immediately. You can make this easy and tasty recipe for two or four people, just increase the amount of greens and th…
