Then take me disappearin’ through the smoke rings of my mind
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves
The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves
Let me forget about today until tomorrow...

(From Mr. Tambourine Man by Bob Dylan)

Mermaid Secret for Beautiful Hair!

Seaweed benefits the liver and kidney channels, the two organs that are closely related to healthy hair. When consumed daily, seaweed can promote the growth of glossy hair and prevent its loss. It also helps to provide a clear complexion and soft, wrinkle-free skin. 

One of the richest sources of iodine; highly concentrated in iron and calcium, rich in niacin and thiamine, seaweed is excellent for alleviating high blood pressure; builds bones and teeth, and is traditionally used to treat feminine disorders and mouth afflictions.

In Legend of King Arthur: Camelot there is a 'quest' to sort out truth from fiction in the story of King Arthur and his Round Table at Camelot.  This DVD seeks out many sources within Great Britain from true historical persons, places, and events that spark the imagination and leave an impression of what the 'real' Camelot might have been like.

Of particular note is the wrap-up at the end by historian Dan Shadrake:  "Camelot is anywhere bravery and nobility are celebrated.  Camelot is as much an idea as a place.  The time and location are of secondary importance.  What comes first is to fight for the good."

I cannot help but think of another kingdom hoped for, and longed for, throughout the ages. This 'once and future King' - typified by Arthur - is the true King of Kings.  Will there truly be a perfect Kingdom one day, greater even than Camelot?  Many believe so, but still 'what comes first is to fight for the good...'

Erica Davies Printed Knit Maxi Dress -

Yes, this dress is very long. I am 5'2" and I purchased the XS. Perfect fit except for the length. I thought about having it professionally altered, but ended up just pinning and then sewing up the hem by hand. It wasn't all that difficult and I prefer having something too long, rather than too short to begin with. I wore this for my son's wedding at Turtle Bay on the North Shore in Hawaii. It felt just perfect due to the colorful and happy print. It also looks very elegant, but casual enough for the tropics. I also love that the 'racerback' is stylish, but not overly revealing. Does not show bra straps at all. Nice weight and drape to the fabric, and the elastic waist is very comfortable (and forgiving).   LOVE IT! - AND MY NEW FAMILY!!
