This recipe is from “The Complete Book of Raw Food”, a really awesome cookbook that I will bring to our next potluck for anyone who would like to learn about it.

What do you think?

Music Day!

 Last Wednesday was a wonderful day of music! Some of us have been really excited about beat-boxing lately, so we started out with a simple “booms” and “clacks” and ended in full a acapella song. We then shared songs, including “Three LIttle Birds” by Bob Marley, and some traditional folk songs. But the day certainly would not have been complete without a full tilt percussion jam! What a day of rhythm and vibration.

pizza party

Wassookeagers enjoyed making and eating pizza the week before Thanksgiving. Friends smoothed their own dough, and covered with toppings agreed on by all. The lesson to look in the stove before preheating was learned when the job of turning on the oven was performed, (there were a few cast-iron pans with wood handles hanging out in there -oops!) Thanks to a full house of cooperating community, this was fixed up fast and friendly.

A story by Tara

Hello readers!

I have been writing a story about Warriors. Now for those of you who do not know what a Warrior is, I shall    tell you! Warriors are powerful and vicious Clan cats. A Clan is a group of cats under their ancestors in StarClan. StarClan is where cats go when they die, but not to worry! The cats in StarClan sometimes send flashes of what might happen in the future to help with all the cats problems.
