Friday Faves, Issue #17

Damp and dark to start the day here in California.  Perfect weather for a quick review of the Friday Faves. Warm and inviting, and ready for YOU.

Destination of the Week:  On the west coast of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia sits Jeddah, ancient way station for traders and pilgrims. 

Quote of the Week: “I have take more out of alcohol than it has taken out of me.”  ~Winston Churchill

Band of the Week: These guys were early adapters in the MTV era, and it paid off:   The Cars

Meal/Food of the Week:  The humble, sneaky awesome cucumber These have become a staple at the house as we kick-start the efforts to snack on vegetables. Good for you too!

Website of the Week: A true pioneer in new thinking about philanthropically-geared organizations, Nuru International is blazing a new trail to end extreme poverty.  Promising results so far – more to come, no doubt.

REMINDER:   Your comments are always welcome! LOVE to hear what you have to say, GOOD or otherwise.  If you fancy twitter, you can follow more of the muse via that micro-blogging site:  my handle is @jhludlum ~

Enjoy the weekend!
