Unity – The Documentary

From the web site:

UNITY is the newest film by Shaun Monson for Nation Earth. Written and produced over the past six years, it will be released in 2014. The structure of the film comprises five acts: Cosmos, Mind, Body, Heart and Soul.

The subject of the film focuses on humanity’s propensity for apathy and empathy. Shaun has described UNITY as a film about opposites, or rather, “Why we perceive opposites in one another despite our various religions (88% of the planet is religious), all our Self-Help books, our 12-Step programs, even our philosophies and vast technology.”

Producers: Julie Goldman,Jason Orans
Executive Producers: Jeff Skoll, Diane Weyermann, John Battsek, Sally Jo Fifer

From Participant Media, the new documentary about the BP Oil Spill premiers March 9, 2014.

It happened on April 20, 2010.
People died, people suffered and suffer still as a result of this disaster.
Animals and the environment have been affected detrimentally also.
Will the truth surface?
Will greed ever end?
Will humans ever learn they cannot control everything,
that perhaps this dependence on oil is not a good thing?
Time will tell when when we finally run ourselves out of this double edged sword aka oil.

100 Percent Cotton Potholder

These cotton potholders  have been tested by us and they really do work. No burned fingers or hands.
They hold up well under frequent use and can withstand many machine wash/machine dry cycles.
As well as being functional, they also make nice decorations when hung on kitchen cupboard doors,
refrigerators, ovens, etc. They are a low priced but quality handmade gift to give.

We use only 100 percent cotton print fabric as well as Warm & Natural cotton batting as well as Coats and Clark cotton quilting threads in their construction.

According to the Warm and Natural website:

The nation’s leading cotton quilt batting is now better than ever. We’ve managed to improve on the best and we’re grinning from ear to ear. It is easy to see why once you take a look for yourself.

  • Our new ultra-cleaning process extracts a greater percentage of leaves and stems. Virtually unblemished, Warm & Natural batting looks its Sunday best.
  • Our newly refined needlepunch technique better distributes the cotton on both sides of the scrim.
  • Tiny tangles called neps, which once led to dull needles, are nearly eliminated.
  • Warm & Natural needled cotton still uses no chemicals, glues, or resins, so you know that it is gentle enough for even the youngest child.

Having used Warm and natural in our potholders the past 12 years, we have to agree!
