May 20, 2009 The Danc So, You Think You. Can't Dance The gate at "The Dance" opens shortly before 3 P.M. on Saturday, June 6th. By purchasing your tickets in advance you can avoid a delay at the gate because dance lessons begin promptly a three. Don't be shy about stepping onto the floor, because if you don't, you'll spend another event watching everyone else from the sidelines having a good time. You'll watch and think, "it doesn't seem that difficult", and... "they sure seem to be having a good time". "Excuse me Miss, would you like to dance? .... Oh I'm sorry, I don't know how (you good-lookin' hunk of cowboy)." So, because this is a "country dance" we're going to teach you the Two Step, and with a slight variation in steps, how to Swing. We'll also teach the Waltz, a beautiful dance, whether on the country floor or ballroom. A line dance is a must, and votes are heavily favoring the Slide. This is how it works. You can come with or without a partner. You will notice that in addition to the main instructor, there will be men and women on the floor that are good dancers.. You will pair up and be taught proper posture and dance position with your partner. The assistants will be there to help with individual instruction. We'll also talk about and demonstrate courtesies of the floor. Then, we'll get to the dance steps, and this is where all you're fears of being a total klutz in front of every one will be confirmed. Fear not, no one "gets it" immediately. Next, you will form a circle with your partner. If the crowd is large, we'll have two circles. On the count of 5, 6, 7, 8 you'll start dancing and bumping into each other, and even though you are laughing at yourself, all your fears are confirmed. Don't give up. Your instructor will then say, Change Partners! Ladies will then move counter clockwise to the next gentleman and the process will begin again, ("hello, by Bill Fink Try It, it'll put a smile on your face. my name is Bill, I'm Janice and I can't believe I'm doing this, me either, but maybe you could save me a dance when the music starts"). What a great way to meet people. You will notice that every so often, ladies will move to an experienced dancer and experienced lady dancers will move to the men. This works very well, because we are trying to get a lot of people up and dancing in a very short time. With the personal instruction you'll be getting, will learn quickly. The sessions will last about 20 to 30 minutes, and as they are repeated, you'll be shown more moves to add to the basic steps of the previous lesson. No one walks away from these lessons a great dancer. But with the basics you can participate, and that's the fun of this great event. "Excuse me Miss, would you like to dance?" "Well, I'm just a beginner, but I'd love to." Experienced dancers, if you'd like to help, call the information line at 760 752-5044, leave a message at the end of the recording and you'll get a return call. The Julian News 7 Maintain Your Brain continued from page 1 to function properly.

The program will be held at the Julian Branch Library located at 1850 Highway 78 in the library's community room. If you require respite care to be able to attend Four years ago, Henry, the feral Julian cat, needed an amputation to save his life. He entered the lives of people who were prejudiced against cats, but committed to healing in all its varieties. To date, there have been 33,000 e-mails "he" has answered from children and adults who find it possible to talk to him about their vulnerability and to create avenues of hope as they write their stories. He has been a busy boy in his healing efforts to reach out to the families of the wounded, returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Thirty-five hundred of his books and workbooks have found their way to the families of our returning wounded warriors. He has changed the lives of thousands, including his own family. However, the life he has changed the most is that of Dollydog, the black poodle with whom he lives. What's the Matter with Henry? and his accompanying Kibble for Thought workbook, raise questions which lead to the discoveries of love and hope. Henry calls each person to be the hero in his or her own story and to be true to who they are. Now, at long last, Dolly has a turn to tell her side of the story. With the help of scribes Cathy Conheim and BJ Gallagher, Dolly has just published her own book titled What About Me? I'm Here Too! Dolly's book addresses the issues of all who feel invisible and lost when someone's need is greater than their own. There are 9.3 million chronically ill children in the United States. Most of them have siblings. Too often family members forget that the healthy siblings become at serious risk for many behavioral and health issues when all the attention and resources of a family must be dedicated to the sick family member. When Henry arrived with his bandages and three legs, Dolly was called upon to be a good and Patient "fur" nurse. She did so for many months, hoping the kitten who came to stay in HER home would go back to wherever he came from. Dolly liked her status as the only pet of the household, and saw the wounded kitten as an unwelcome intruder into her perfect life. Told through bright and colorful photos and words, What About Me? speaks of the feelings of confusion, insecurity, and loss as the daily life of attention, walks and treats is taken over by this event, please contact Marty Dolly's Story Hometown Boy Henry The Cat Now Shares Spotlight With His Poodle Sister Dollydog bandages, medicine and pain. Dolly's family learns, as does Dolly, that everyone needs to be told that they matter and that they are loved, even when time and energy are dedicated to another acute demand. What is not mentionable is not manageable. In this country, except for anger, we do not have an ease with an emotional vocabulary. Dolly's book seeks to give voice and validation for the complex array of feelings that emerg#when there is a scarcity of e otional and physical resources. Most importantly, Dolly helps her humans to understand that mixed and compli cated feelings: confusion, frustra!ion, worry, guilt, anger, fear and jealousy, are all NORMAL feelings. We must control behaviors but we need to encourage the expression of feelings. Dolly doesn't have to love her brother Henry all the time, bbt she cannot hurt him. Dolly now joins Henry and the rest of her family as a healer for all humans in need. There is much talk today of health care reform, The faithful caretakers of our sick and disabled have to live with some very hard truths. One of those truths is that they have very adaptive tools to help sick children and their families talk openly about their feelings, the challenges, and the fears that cal impede healing. In using 51 the voice of a cat and a dog to engage the reader, these books are unique and effective tools for healing.Like Henry, Dolly has her own Kibble for Thought to help humans at the end of the book. ALL profits from Dolly's and Henry's books go to help animals and children in need. One sad side effect of all the recent foreclosures is the abandonment of so many pets. Now, more than ever, our shelters need funds to take care of these vulnerable and loving animals. Dolly wants to direct funds from her book to help with animals in Julian and elsewhere. Save gas and time, give all on your 2009 gift list a Dolly or Henry book. It is a win/ win situatiori--humans get the needed lessons, animals get the funds. These books are for children of all ages; from 3-93-- some have small bodies, and others are trapped in big bodies. Dolly's books'can be found on her "brother's" website in the store section of the site. They are $20 each plus tax. Both books are also available at Pizza Express in Wynola or snail mail: Box 135, La Jolla, CA, 92038. All checks should be made out to Henry's World.
