UPCOMING EVENTS FOR ALL:

"Study in the Park" -- Bring your brown paper bag lunch and something to keep you hydrated throughout the day and meet your class and instrutors at the Deaf Church. then get on the streetcar and transfer to the following appropriate streetcars (and perhaps one bus because the streetcar may be down in one area). The classes will meet, study and share lunch at Audubon Park and ride the streetcar back to the Deaf Church. NOTE: It was suggested by the Transit Authority that you look into purchasing an all day pass for your convenience and to save money instead of paying for each transfer.  July 11, 2015

Experience what it would feel like to be dropped off in a Deaf World, where the required mode of communicatation for all businesses transactions from going to the local store to your court will be ASL.

Water Kefir & Healthy Cooking Workshop

It is time to stop drinking soda (which is bad for you) and opt for something that tastes a million times better, is healthy ... and is much more affordable!!!

Instructor: Barbara Lovas, Th.D.
February 28, 2015,  2pm -- 4pm
5324 Canal Blvd, NOLA, 70124
(Enter the side door, downstairs, facing Hawthorne Place)

Cost: $10 (Pay at the door)
(R.S.V.P. -- due to limited space -- 504-722-2967 or bblovas1@yahoo.com)
 Another last minute water kefir workshop because my kefir is growing so fast that I need to give some away!!!

Those who attend will be given some grains and instruction on how to make water kefir. I will include a recipe and resources. Please bring to the workshop a regular canning jar (pint or quart).   I will provide you with all the instructions, ingredients and the recipe needed to make your first batch. So, you will go home prepared to make your first batch. As always, I don't sell my grains or scobies, but will give them away.
 
We will go over general guidelines to eating healthy. Topics will include homegrown probiotics, fermented foods, and our body's need for fatty acids. We will also discuss how to make healthy tasty alternatives to replace foods that we need to eliminate from our diets. Of course, you can expect me to fuss a bit about white table salt (poison) and artificial sweeteners (poison) ... but I will give you healthy alternatives! In fact, I will give you an opportunity to taste them.
NOTE: We will not make any other recipes during this workshop ... last time we barely made it through 2 of the three we had scheduled. Instead, I will tell you about recipes and provide any recipes you are interested in via email after our workshop. If you want milk kefir, water kefir or a kombucha scoby, remember those are available according to my supply. That being said; If you ask in advance, I should have some milk kefir grains and maybe some kombucha ready to give away on the day of the workshop.  As I always give away kefir and kombucha for free. If you need an interpreter, please request an interpreter immediately: specify the language needed.
Don't worry, if you accidentally kill the kefir I have given you, I will always be glad to give you more.
If you are interested in attending this workshop, please reply to this e-mail and let me know you plan to go so I can hold your seat.  Feel free to invite your friends, just make sure you inform me, so they are added into my headcount.:)  I am looking forward to seeing you there. Seize the day!!!  Barbara

This workshop will focus on helping participants to find several opportunities of legitimate sources to earn an income from home. Often people are hesitant to accept opportunities to earn money at home for fear of being fooled by scams and con schemes. These resources that we will share with and demonstrated to participants have been tried and tested. No pyramid schemes or multi-level marketing businesses will be shared. No one teaching or assisting in the class will make any money off of your work. General tips on job searching and interview techniques will also be discussed. Each participant will have an opportunity to work with an assistant to create or update their resume.
