Forever Is Not A Measure Of Time / To What End? / Friday Trip: Rollerland West & the Antique Mall

We become
impoverished by ignorance,
depraved by arrogance,
thinking we know
more
than we may be
aware of.

“But when He,
the Spirit of Truth,
comes,
He will guide you
into all the Truth.”
– John 16:13
.
We never fully realize
that the whole
is more
than the sum
of its parts,
that being lost
brings us the
opportunity
to be found,
that to be held
in the warm Embrace
of God
is to be nourished
by our Mother
Earth,
our hair brushed by the wind,
our eyes
fixed on the Truth
within,
revealed by
His Holy Word.
.

“Every
man and woman

are patterned of the whole,
be it of creed, race, age, religion,
that the whole is greater then the sum.”
– Kevin Patrick
.
When God
Lights up the Sky
with the setting of the Sun,
He is really
setting Fire to your
Heart.

            Love always is, and will always be.

Yes,
God’s Love
is a fiery thing.
It illumines
even the darkest night,
casting no shadow
on Earthly things,
setting what is wrong
on the path
to make it
right.

Love
never blind,
can always see.
Shining like a Star,
the Light of our Love
glows ever brightly
from the East
of yesterday,
to the West
of tomorrow.

Close your eyes
that you may see,
Love
always is,
and will always
be.

                          Setting Fire to your Heart.

Forever is not
a measure of time,
for
you cannot measure
that which
does not exist.
Forever is a
Promise
that long after you are gone,
the Love in your Heart
will still exist.

“To whatever extent or way
we may speak of time flowing,
then to that extent time flows
from the future into the past.
The current of time brings the future
into the present
and the present
into the past.”
– Bob Enyart
Pastor, Denver Bible Church

The coast
of our only,
often lonely,
isolated Island
pretends not to be,
to be no one.
It can appear bare,
needing to homeward
repair.

                          To the West of tomorrow.

Close your eyes
So that you may see.
Open your heart,
That you may fully
be.

And please remember,
when you call
His name,
God will never hesitate
to wrap you in Endless
Grace.
His Love
has no beginning
and no end.
His World
is without
end
and can be
yours,
forever
and ever
and ever.

Goodnight.

One picture can whisper more than a thousand words.

Are These Tears for Naught?

“To what end do we proceed
so boldly,

If all we are is chemical reactions?
And what World have you so deftly
sold me,

If you reduce me,
if
I have no Soul to touch?

No Heart to Love,
no evil to rise up above?
No Angels and no ghosts,
no real victories to toast?
If you believe that this is true
then I must ask,

To what end do you proceed?

No fire in our eyes,
no steel in our Hearts?
No magic in our songs,
are we just empty vessels?

Did I not feel your Love,
did I not feel your hate?

And did my Heart just not leap,
and did my Heart not
break?

And are these tears for naught,
and are these words in vain?

If this is all we are
then what have we to gain?

What of all the art and books,
music and poetry?

What of all our memories,
what of our hopes and dreams?

If they hold no value
then we hold no Faith
but greed.

So I must ask you,
to what end do we proceed?

To What End?”

Anthony DiSanteon

“Nutrition is important
in both cancer and heart disease prevention.
Eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains,
fat-free and low-fat dairy foods, and seafood
and reducing Sugar in the diet.

has been associated with a decrease
in cardiovascular disease
and cancer.”

The disease-fighting elements
in a good diet are:

Fiber,
which aids weight control and lowers heart and cancer risks.
Antioxidants,
which fight disease-causing cell damage
Omega-3 fatty acids, which lower blood pressure
among other benefits.”

The Child Within / Simple Health Tips / Friday: Rollerland West and La Madeleine Country French Cafe

“And wherever I climb
Far away and anywhere,
You raise me high
beyond the sky,

Through stormy night
lifting me above.

Whenever I cry,
Far away and anywhere,
You hear me call
when shadows fall.

Your Light of Hope
showing me the way.”

                  The Child within.

If
you want to give
your precious Child
a Gift,
give the Child within,
the Child you are,
the Child once you were,
the Child you have been
and want to be
again.

Through your Child’s eyes
you can finally come
to see,
that YOU
are no longer blind
to the Love of God
within.

Listen,
you can hear
the Voice of God
in the laughter
of your Child at play,
in the songs
you sing,
in the breeze –
the melody of the leaves
in the trees,
in the Love you see
drifting on a lake
of beautiful
memories.

       On a lake of beautiful memories.

“Let the little children come to me,
and do not hinder them,
for the Kingdom of God
belongs to such as these.

Truly
I tell you,

anyone who will not receive
the Kingdom of God
like a little child
will never enter it.”
Luke 18:15-17

Let the Child
in you
bring you Home.
And by the Grace of God,
you will never again
be alone.

Love that simply will not die.

There is something
time cannot deny.
It lives
in our memories,
it is alive
in our Dreams,
and never echos goodbye.
It is
the Love
that simply will not
die.

The Human Heart
is always in
Prayer.
What it needs,
it fervently desires.
But the mind
does not permit
the Heart
to always be
aware.

jhb

When evening
gilds the beautiful sky
and colors the Heart,
Love
filters through the mind,
and stills
our restless Soul.

For the Eye
of your Spirit,
is the Ear
of your Heart.

“O Love
That will not let me go,

I rest my weary Soul in Thee;
I give Thee back the Life I owe,
That in Thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be.

O Light that followest all my way,georgematheson
I yield my flickering torch to thee;
My Heart restores its borrowed ray,
That in thy sunshine’s blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be.

O Joy that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to thee;
I trace the rainbow through the rain,
And feel the Promise is not vain,
That morn shall tearless be.
George Matheson

My Friends,
there is Victory
in the Word,
the Sacred Word
of God.
Lift His Love
from each page
sent from Above,
and God
will lift from your
tearful Heart
all doubt.

“Life has meaning
only in the struggle.

Triumph or defeat
is in the hands of God.
So let us celebrate the struggle!”

– Swahili Song

I am
the Flowers
in pastures green.
I am
the birds in flight that sing.
I am
clay
in the Hands
of the Potter.
I am
His Breath
drawn of deep desire,
to be His Child,
and He,
my Father.

Voices combine.
Music rhymes.
Our Hearts
are one.
The Miracle of Life
we Glorify,
and our Love
of Life
becomes a Song.

I am a Flower in pastures green.

Adoramus.
Gloria in Excelsis Deo.
Glory to God in the Highest.

As we sing the Song
of Life,
we cannot deny,
we touch the
Sky.

Touch the Sky
by Ben Crawley

“Climb a tree to touch the sky.
Through the leaves I watch the birds fly,
in the softly swaying breeze
from my nest among the trees.
So the golden light dances
through the pattern of branches
all the colors of autumn,
alive.
As the leaves of evening fall
from my throne above us all,
where the faithful blossom flowers,
here I while away for hour after hour,
climb a tree
to touch the sky.”

Simple Health Tips

Bitters

Combat a yen for sugar by following a Chinese medicine approach: Eat foods such as endive, radicchio, cooked greens, and olives.

Fish

If you suffer from dry eyes, up your seafood intake. Salmon, sardines, and mackerel contain omega-3 fatty acids, which the body uses to produce tears, among other things. Research suggests that people who consume higher amounts of these fats are less likely to have dry eyes.

Probiotics

Supplementing with “good” bacteria (for example, Lactobacillus or Bifidobacterium) may help restore the balance the of bacteria and inhibit the growth of infections. Foods such as naturally fermented sauerkraut, kimchi, and kefir, as well as yogurt with active cultures, also contain these bacteria.

Bilberry

Studies are mixed, but some have found that bilberry, a relative of the blueberry, may improve night vision. During World War II, fighter pilots reported better night vision after eating bilberry jam. 25 to 50 milligrams of bilberry extract will give the best results within the first few hours.

Bananas

People whose diets are rich in potassium may be less prone to high blood pressure. Besides reducing sodium and taking other heart-healthy steps, eat potassium-packed picks such as bananas, cantaloupe, and oranges.

Capsaicin Cream

For sore muscles and joints, apply a cream or ointment that contains capsaicin, the active ingredient in chile peppers, two or three times a day. The heat from the peppers has been shown to help relieve pain.

Garlic

Adding raw or lightly cooked garlic and onions to your meals may help keep you healthy this winter. Both foods appear to possess antiviral and antibacterial properties and are believed to boost immunity.

Tulsi

Research suggests that this Ayurvedic herb, also called holy basil, may help manage levels of the stress hormone cortisol, helping to boost your mood. Look for teas and supplements in health-food stores and follow package directions.

Avocados

For dry skin, incorporate more avocados into your diet. They’re rich in monounsaturated fat and vitamin E, both of which promote healthy skin. Try them on salads and sandwiches, and even in smoothies.

Triphala

Avoid constipation and stay regular with Triphala, an Ayurvedic blend of three fruits that is believed to help tone the gastrointestinal tract. Look for capsules of Triphala and follow package directions.

Arnica

Homeopathic creams, gels, and ointments that contain arnica, a flower similar to the daisy, have long been used to relieve swelling and bruising. Rub into the affected area, but stop using if you develop skin irritation.

GLA

If you’ve ruled out other causes of hair loss, such as stress, overuse of hair-care products, and certain medications and diseases such as hypothyroidism, consider supplementing with evening primrose oil. It’s a good source of gamma-linolenic acid, an essential fatty acid that’s needed for hair growth and is hard to get from your diet. Experts recommend taking 500 milligrams twice a day; expect to wait eight weeks to see results.

Japanese Food

In addition to following good dental hygiene, you can help prevent cavities by adding more shiitake mushrooms and wasabi to your diet. Both foods contain compounds that help fight the bacteria that cause plaque and cavities.

Hydrate

To treat an acute migraine, drink a full glass of water — dehydration can trigger headaches. Even if you need to take a medication for the pain, try wrapping your head with an Ace bandage so that it covers your eyes, then lie down and breathe deeply. This often helps the pain pass more quickly.

Calendula

To ease acne, forgo benzoyl peroxide for lotion or soap made from calendula flowers, which may have antiseptic effects.

Cranberry Juice

Cranberries contain a substance that appears to keep bacteria from sticking to the walls of the urinary tract and has been shown to help prevent UTIs. Because cranberry cocktail is high in sugar, drink unsweetened juice diluted with water or take capsules of powdered cranberry extract.

Mint Tea

Ease occasional indigestion by sipping a cup of peppermint tea after your meal. Peppermint improves the flow of bile, which moves food through the digestive tract more quickly. Use peppermint with caution if you have acid reflux; it can make that problem worse.

Friendly Fungi

The medicinal mushroom cordyceps has traditionally been used to promote lung strength, and some studies show that it may improve symptoms of respiratory conditions such as asthma and bronchitis. Look for capsules or tinctures of cordyceps; follow package directions.

Honey

Research suggests that honey may be more effective than over-the-counter cough syrup at quelling nighttime coughing. Use a medicinal-grade variety such as manuka honey and take up to 2 teaspoonfuls at bedtime.

Broccoli

For healthy gums, put this green vegetable on your grocery list. It’s an excellent source of vitamin C and provides calcium as well, both of which have been linked to lower rates of periodontal disease.

Green Tea

Hot or iced, green tea can help rev up your workout. Its catechins, antioxidants, and caffeine help increase the metabolic generation of heat. Drink a cup about 10 minutes before exercising.

Coffee & Now Chocolate Good For You? / Spring Break This Week

My friends,

I know we tell our children what NOT to eat. But let us be certain to inform them about what IS good for them. Please share this information.

6 Health Benefits of Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate has recently been discovered to have healthy benefits. While eating dark chocolate can lead to the health benefits described below, remember that chocolate is also high in fat.

Alden captures a Butterfly - on his telephone

Alden captures a Butterfly – on his telephone

1) Dark Chocolate is Good for Your Heart

Studies show that eating a small amount of dark chocolate two or three times each week can help lower your blood pressure. Dark chocolate improves blood flow and may help prevent the formation of blood clots. Eating dark chocolate may also prevent arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).

2) Dark Chocolate is Good for Your Brain

Dark chocolate increases blood flow to the brain as well as to the heart, so it can help improve cognitive function. Dark chocolate also helps reduce your risk of stroke.

Dark chocolate also contains several chemical compounds that have a positive effect on your mood and cognitive health. Chocolate contains phenylethylamine (PEA), the same chemical your brain creates when you feel like you’re falling in love. PEA encourages your brain to release endorphins, so eating dark chocolate will make you feel happier.

Dark chocolate also contains caffeine, a mild stimulant. However, dark chocolate contains much less caffeine than coffee. A 1.5 ounce bar of dark chocolate contains 27 mg of caffeine, compared to the 200 mg found in an eight ounce cup of coffee.

3) Dark Chocolate Helps Control Blood Sugar

Dark chocolate helps keep your blood vessels healthy and your circulation unimpaired to protect against type 2 diabetes. The flavonoids in dark chocolate also help reduce insulin resistance by helping your cells to function normally and regain the ability to use your body’s insulin efficiently. Dark chocolate also has a low glycemic index, meaning it won’t cause huge spikes in blood sugar levels.

4) Dark Chocolate is Full of Antioxidants

Dark chocolate is loaded with antioxidants. Antioxidants help free your body of free radicals, which cause oxidative damage to cells. Free radicals are implicated in the aging process and may be a cause of cancer, so eating antioxidant rich foods like dark chocolate can protect you from many types of cancer and slow the signs of aging.

5) Dark Chocolate Contains Theobromine

Dark chocolate contains theobromine, which has been shown to harden tooth enamel. That means that dark chocolate, unlike most other sweets, lowers your risk of getting cavities if you practice proper dental hygiene.

Ian also enjoyed the waterfall

Theobromine is also a mild stimulant, though not as strong as caffeine. It can, however, help to suppress coughs.

6) Dark Chocolate is High in Vitamins and Minerals

Dark chocolate contains a number of vitamins and minerals that can support your health. Dark chocolate contains some of the following vitamins and minerals in high concentrations:
• Potassium
• Copper
• Magnesium
• Iron
The copper and potassium in dark chocolate help prevent against stroke

and cardiovascular ailments. The iron in chocolate protects against iron deficiency anemia, and the magnesium in chocolate helps prevent type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease.

There are also beauty benefits to enjoying dark chocolate.

Dark chocolate (the good stuff that’s low in sugar and high in cocoa) is rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that nourish skin. And its intoxicating aroma and conditioning properties make it the perfect ingredient for hair care. Still not convinced? Here are five reasons why you should add dark chocolate to your beauty regimen.

It repairs dry skin. Iron, calcium and vitamins A, B1, C, D and E are among the many nutrients that we can obtain from dark chocolate. Swap out that extra cup of coffee or green tea for a cocoa-rich drink that will deeply moisturize skin and leave behind a healthy glow. Or you could slough away dead skin cells with a DIY chocolate body scrub made out of olive oil, brown sugar, cocoa powder and vanilla.

It shields against harmful UV rays. Flavonols found in dark chocolate

have been clinically shown to help your skin protect itself from sunburn, redness and other signs of UV damage. When applied directly to the skin, it also has the ability to repair and hydrate body parts that have been exposed to the sun. But we wouldn’t suggest slacking on sunscreen.

It erases wrinkles and fine lines. Things seem a bit calmer right after we nibble on a piece of dark chocolate, and we all know how stress impacts our skin. And as our friends over at YouBeauty explain, “Cocoa helps reduce stress hormones, which means less collagen breakdown in the skin and fewer wrinkles.” Sort of like eating your way to pretty.

Please allow me to share some of the Latest Cancer Research in a Release By A. J. Morgan  (2-24-2013)

Did You Know?

AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AN ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY

Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells, because they have not reached a detectable size.

Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.

Many gifts in life, like this magnificent sunset, are free!

Many gifts in life, like this magnificent sunset, are free! Take the time to enjoy them, reduce stress and live longer.

When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system. To read the entire research release article from the source, click here.

a. SUGAR is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Note: Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc. are made with Aspartame (just read the label) and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color. A better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.

b.MILK causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soymilk, cancer cells will starve.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic. It is best to eat fish and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruit help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells.

To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells drink fresh vegetable juice and eat raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day.

Wisdom of the Ages

Wisdom of the Ages

e. Avoid caffeine. Green tea is a great alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Drink Water. It is best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires many digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines will become putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.

Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

Some supplements build up the immune system:

        IP6 (Inositol Hexaphosphate), according to the American Cancer Society, is a chemical found in beans, brown rice, corn, sesame seeds, wheat bran, and other high-fiber foods. Learn how the B vitamin inositol and its derivative IP6 prevent cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis; protect against radiation; lower cholesterol and boosts immunity at ip-6.net.

Pioneering experiments done in Professor A. M. Shamsuddin’s laboratory at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore, have shown that not only IP6 extremely safe, but that it and its parent molecule Inositol have anti-cancer and immune-boosting function. Dr. Shamsuddin and his associates’ findings have been validated and expanded by other scientists around the world discovering many more health benefits of IP6 & Inositol.

Excess iron in the body can cause all sorts of problems such as cancer & degenerative brain diseases. IP6 Inositol is unique as it will only remove excess iron & not iron from within your blood cells that is protected by hemoglobin. IP6 will also remove excess calcium & other metallic minerals that our bodies have accumulated down through the years.

Also recommended are Antioxidants – a group of several organic substances, including selenium, vitamins C, E, and A, and a group known as carotenoids. Antioxidants are abundant in fruits, vegetables, grain, and coffee (to avoid caffeine, purchase coffee without caffeine). Coffee, even caffeine free coffee, has 60 antioxidants. Yes, that steaming cup of java is also the number one source of antioxidants in the U.S. diet, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Scranton. Steve Connor, Science Editor, has stated that coffee might soon be considered a health drink, following a study showing it is a surprisingly rich source of anti-cancer agents. (Excuse me, while I pour another cup.)

Antioxidants are compounds in foods that neutralize chemicals called free radicals (unstable molecules), produced by oxidation in the human body. These chemicals have been linked to diseases such as heart and liver disease and cancer.

Oxidant chemicals called free radicals are produced during normal cell respiration. They can also occur when phagocytes, the cells that fight infections, destroy cells infected with bacteria or viruses, with bursts of nitric oxide, superoxide, and hypochlorite; when fatty acids are digested; and when certain enzymes are activated to fight toxins.

Free radicals damage the DNA that makes up our genes, those parts of the cell that control its reproduction. Lesions in DNA give rise to mutations when the cell divides, and these mutations can lead to tumors. (Other causes of DNA lesions and cell mutations include radiation from the sun, exposure to chemicals and the worst of these is tobacco smoke).

Also recommended are vitamins, minerals and EFAs – Essential Fatty Acids are essential because the human body cannot manufacture them but needs them for many important functions to enable the body’s own cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements, like vitamin E, are known to cause apoptosis – programmed cell death – which is the body’s natural method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.

Anger, unforgiving and bitterness put the body
into a stressful and acidic environment.
Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit.
Learn to relax and enjoy life.

Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

My friends, every time you say NO to your child when they want something unhealthy to eat or drink, you say NO to pain and suffering and an incomprehensibly miserable death. Our food chain is so polluted, that it is now almost impossible to eat a healthy meal, especially if you eat out.

Folks, if we are to protect our children we MUST become informed. And we MUST become as tough as nails. The next time you see your beloved child with a toxic so-called soft drink in his or her hands, quickly remove it from their hands, pour it down the drain and give him or her a big hug. Tell that beautiful child of yours that you truly love them and let them know what is in that toxic, cancer causing, diabetes inducing mix of chemicals. Corporations have paid a fortune to find out what they can legally concoct to get your child addicted. And trust me, none of the board members will attend the funeral!

Better yet, visit with your children in-tow, the Children’s Hospital. Volunteer to help and, while you are there performing a truly valued and appreciated service, talk to the children who are patients and visit with their parents. Do this WITH your children present. The impact of seeing the results of nutritional deficiencies and exposure to carcinogens will last a lifetime. No, you will never have to say another word! Truly effective teaching does not involve speaking and preaching. It does require thoughtful and meaningful exposure to the consequences of poor decision making.

There are a very (and I mean, very) FEW restaurants that care about you and your health. May I recommend The Spiral Diners (817.3.EatVeg) (817-332-8834). They are vegan restaurants located in Near Southside Fort Worth, with a second location in Dallas. The Fort Worth location is currently the city’s only vegan restaurant  (visit: spiraldiner.com). The owners of this precious resource have very graciously and knowledgeably presented lessons to our students in the past.

I also highly recommend Greenwood’s Restaurant, located at the end of University Drive, 3522 Bluebonnet Circle, Fort Worth (817.921.6777).  Take the time to get to know Peter & Vlatka Gruenewald and let them know you want a healthy meal. Cooking is a passion to Chef Peter, who began his cooking apprenticeship in 1972 in Offenbach, Germany, culminating in his “Meisterschaft” (master craftsman) chef’s diploma in Frankfurt in 1988.

We have known Peter and Vlatka for many years and I can assure you that cooking truly is a lifetime passion for them, which is why every dish and every ingredient at Greenwood’s is handpicked and made fresh daily. And try Peter’s Hand-Crafted Bread with100% Organic Ingredients!

Most importantly, this charming couple will care about you. Talk to them and let them know you are concerned about your health. They will listen and you will be truly delighted with your meal. This restaurant is one of the most valuable resources you will discover in the Fort Worth area.

Please remember, that every dollar you spend is like casting a vote. When you purchase something toxic, you provide the funding for uncaring corporations to continue their abuse and grow financially at our expense. The dollar you possess is a very powerful weapon in the arsenal of life. Please, for the sake of you and your child, spend it wisely or keep in your pocket!

SHAKESPEARE PRODUCTION SELECTED

Coinciding with the momentous 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth, which has been estimated as 26th April 1564, our very own Anderson School Shakespeare Players have voted to perform “As You Like It” at the end of next April.

Students, under the guidance of noted actor and director, George Rodriguez, reviewed other plays including Henry VI, Part Three and The Merry Wives of Windsor. Following vigorous campaigning by Natalie and her counterparts, “As You Like It” won hands down by placing hands up.
