Jeff’s Totally Excellent Iced Tea: A Sun Tea

sun tea

It’s been rather hot and we’ve been running a lot (nice rhyme, right?).  What better way to quench thirst deliciously?  Here is my recipe:

5 bags English Breakfast Tea

2 bags Green Tea

64 oz water in a clear (preferably glass) container

Cover and put in the sun for three hours. Add:

3 tablespoons raw sugar

There you have it!  Enjoy!  Of course you can add more or less sugar, lemon, mint…this is simply the basic recipe and it’s really good, and has some healthful properties!

Enjoy the day!

Mental Science

thomasTroward200wGood Afternoon, and great Friday to all of you!

I’ve been reading a lot by Thomas Troward and highly recommend his “The Edinburgh Lectures”.  What an incredible book; what an incredible way to think! He explains in depth why your mental attitude and what you think about are key to how you will experience your life and what you will experience in your life.

It is important to be happy, experience joy, live life more fully each day, love everyone and everything, be aware of your constant connection with the Universal, or God, all of  these things! Judge Troward explains all of this–it’s like the science of spiritual philosophy.  Very deep and very joyful!

Troward has a number of other books, but so far I like “Edinburgh” best. Other titles include “The Creative Process in the Individual”, “Bible Mystery and Meaning”, “The Law and the Word”, and “The Dore Lectures”.

If any of you read any of his work, I’d love to hear your thoughts about it!

Have a truly fine day!

Change Your Mind


What am I thinking today to improve my mind?  How can I make my mind strong to create the world I want to live in?  Practice, Grasshopper!

Forgive me for not having the exact reference and for mis-quoting in a big way, but this re-minds me of one of the Great Teacher’s responses when asked how to achieve spiritual mindedness– “Attention,” the Teacher responded.  The student asked for further explanation.  “Attention, attention” said the Teacher.  Again, the student asked what exactly was meant by that to which the Teacher said, “Attention, attention, attention!”

Attention means focus, which means aiming your mind in the right direction and keeping it there.  What do you think about all day?  Positive life-affirming things like Harmony, Light, spiritual Power, Love, Beauty?  Or do other thoughts occupy the space in your mind?  I can tell you from my own experience that it is EASY to have my mind occupied by inane thoughts ad infinitum.  On and on they go as if they have a life of their own.  But they do not!  We all have an incredible gift, the gift of mind that if pointed in the right direction can provide an awesome connection with the spiritual universe!

I am a neophyte in this practicing daily and whenever I can remember literally trying (and doing on occasion) to change     my     mind.  Thinking in a certain way, like other behaviors, becomes habitual so to really change my mind I have to change my thinking habits.  Meditation, prayer, good!

Some days I am good at it thinking that we are all a part of the whole and I mean the big WE, that is, everything is part of the whole.  Thinking like this helps me to treat everyone and everything including myself with love and respect.  The areas where I have made good progress….ummm 🙂  No, really I have made good progress in general about not judging people and looking for the good in every person or situation (see Monty Python’s “Life of Brian”, the song “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.”  (see

The points on which I am working–driving and thinking kindly about other drivers–getting better at it!  And losing my temper over stupid stuff (not that I want to lose my temper over other things!)  I have made a habit out of this.  The more ridiculous the circumstance the stupider I get.

Just a few thoughts, but don’t go away, there’s more!  If you are interested in this kind of stuff, some authors to read include Thomas Troward (“The Edinburgh Lectures” is my favorite!), Charles Haanel, Rhonda Byrne.  Some of their writings are on the web at The New Thought Library (

As always, enjoy the day!

Paint is Good!


Paint is good in the great room!  The knock-down finish on the walls looks good, too.

Everything is aligned well–this project at 1241 Hanson Avenue in Norfolk is humming along.

Oh, I almost forgot–Mike R. and I ran the Charlottesville Ten Miler Saturday, March 21!  What a fine run.  Congrats to all who did it!

Hanson in Late Winter, and Looking Good!

She’s looking pretty basking in the sun!  Spring is not too far away–Friday March 20 is the Vernal Equinox–four days by my figuring.  This house sprung up just ahead of the earliest flowers, but just as pretty, don’t you think?  The rough-in electrical and plumbing are done; insulation and drywall going in now!

On another note, the Charlottesville Ten Miler is this weekend, Saturday March 21 at 7:15 AM.  Wish us all happiness and a great run!
