I spend my nights doing two things: reading books and stitching canvases. I have thrown in some knitting and painting. Due to my recent hand surgery, I cannot do much except read. And believe it or not, I am also decorating a house these days.

Olives have been written about for years. They have been used for centuries. Olive leaf extract is an excellent herbal remedy for infections. In Alex Dingwall-Main's book, The Angel Tree, you can have the best of both worlds. You read this enchanting story of the quest for the oldest olive tree while understanding the many uses of the olive.

The olive tree is a special tree. It is not special because of its oil, nor for the production of its fruit. It is not special for the elegant bark of the tree. It is special because of its age. Age is an important factor in life. If more men and women spent time talking to the older population, the world would be a better place for all.

Until tomorrow...
