RSVP by November 15:

On November 18, Vicki will be demonstrating/teaching those interested in how to create a very simple, small evergreen table arrangement you can use for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. The arrangement will contain cedar, fir and pittosporum greens with a candle in the center. You will need to bring a pair of clippers or a sharp paring knife and Vicki will procure all the other supplies needed. The cost should be around $5-10. It is imperative that you RSVP by November 15 so Vicki can get enough stuff. Vicki will provide soup and bread, so plan on coming for dinner. If you would prefer sweets or snacks, please bring something.

Adult Game Night
The Butlers are going to have a game night at their house on November 6th in lieu of bowling. Mexican train is the name of the game, and socializing is the main objective. Be there, by 7:30, or be square. Soft drinks will be provided BYOB. Please bring either a dessert or munchies to share.

Westfield Shopping Day
This year the Westfield Shopping is a day long event on Nov. 14th from 11am to 7pm.   Why don't we go and meet for lunch this year at Cheesecake Factory at 11:30am and then we can shop.   It is $5 for the shopping pass which is a donation to Westmont's CSF. Remember there are discounts at all the stores and lots of prizes and free stuff. Let me know if you want one and I will save one for you as there are a limited number. Also RSVP for the lunch.   Randi :-)

I am in a melodrama with my fellow teachers at Westmont called, "Lily, the Felon's Daughter."  I am the felon(male) and have a pretty big part with a song.  If you would like to go, the dates are Dec. 2,3 and 4th.  I am not sure of the price yet but it should be reasonable and the profits go to Westmont's Drama and Speech and Debate programs.  So... grab some friends, get dinner, and then come boo the villain and cheer for the hero.  Thanks!  Randi  :-)

Saturday Coffee Clatches Continue
Meet your Las Madres friends for some coffee and conversation at the Starbuck's at White and Aborn on Saturday mornings at 9am. Every third Saturday is a field trip. This month we'll meet at the Le Boulanger in Willow Glen then take a leisurely stroll around the area.


Two new elements added to the Periodic Table of the Elements:
1. Element Name: WOMANIUM
Symbol: WO
Atomic Weight: (Don't even go there)
Physical Properties: Generally soft and round in form. Boils at nothing and may freeze at any time. Melts when treated properly. Very bitter if not used well.
Chemical Properties: Very active. Highly unstable. Possesses strong affinity with gold, silver, platinum and precious stones. Violent when left alone. Able to absorb great amounts of exotic food. Turns slightly green when placed next to a better specimen.
Usage: Highly ornamental. An extremely good catalyst for dispersion of wealth. Probably the most powerful income-reducing agent known.
Caution: Highly explosive in inexperienced hands.
2. Element Name: MANIUM
Symbol: XY
Atomic Weight: (180 +/- 50)
Physical Properties: Solid at room temperature, but gets bent out of shape easily. Fairly dense and sometimes flaky. Difficult to find a pure sample. Due to rust, aging samples are unable to create electricity.
Chemical Properties: Attempts to bond with any WO any chance it can get. Also tends to form strong bonds with itself. Becomes explosive when mixed with KD (Element: CHILDIUM) for prolonged periods of time. Neutralize by saturating with alcohol.
Usage: None known. Possibly good methane source. Good samples are able to produce large quantities on command.
Caution: In the absence of WO, this element rapidly decomposes and begins to smell.
