Chocolate for a Woman’s Spirit

Book: “Chocolate for a Woman’s Spirit: 77 Stories of Inspiration to Life Your Heart and Soothe Your Soul” by Kay Allenbaugh

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz (Author of “Northern Lake Adventures: The Encounter”)

This book is very similar to the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series. The difference is that the stories are all written by women for women. I am not saying a man could not or would not appreciate the stories, however, they focus around women’s issues.

I find the stories are helpful in that they provide insights into women’s lives. The book carries a wide range of stories, some of them quite heartfelt. Other stories are just average.

I would recommend reading this book if you are looking for some inspiring or uplifting stories. It would be a nice present for a good friend. This book is part of a series of contributed stories and so there other “chocolate” books in the series.

Pacific Jellyfish

This is a photo of Pacific Sea Nettle Jellyfish.  They have been roaming the seas for anywhere from 500 to 700 million years.  They move elegantly with their gelatinous umbrella-shaped bell bodies and flowing tentacles.  They dance as if to music and I was quite mesmerized by them.  They range in size from 1 millimeter to 2 meters in size for their bodies.  Their nerve net system is in their epidermis.  Some jellyfish are light-sensitive through something called ocelli while some jellyfish have up to 24 eyes, 2 of which can see colour.  As you can see, there is quite a range.  They also have a life-cycle going from polyps to the medusa stage.
