Now 6 years old, Jay was the absolute love of his life. Gary loved being "Gramps", arranging visits and kidnapping times to spend as much time as we could with him. Gary always had special house projects for Jay when he was in Palm Springs, teaching him about tools, and spending the rest of time exploring and swimming. Jay's last time with Gramps was just two weeks before he died when he took Jay fishing for the first time. I had 38 years with Gary, 30 of those wonderful years living in Julian. Gary's service was held at Forest Lawn. A short obituary and picture can be found through their website at - search for Gary Passavanti. I also have a Facebook page. With loving remembrances, Lynn Passavanti 23 Calle Abajo, Palm Springsl CA 92264 Don Weeke, will give a visual presentation focusing on creativity and ways to foster it. Sponsored by the Julian Arts Guild, highlight includes fifty photographs of unique pieces detailing the original inspiration for each piece. Those inspirations vary from the Chernobyl nuclear disaster to a movie, from an African bird's nest to the word - Transcend. For more than thirty years, Don, a local fiber artist, has focused on form and texture. He combines natural basketry techniques with natural materials such as gourds, palm seed frond, bark, and branches along with acrylic paint to create baskets, masks, and fiber sculpture. Three of his pieces are included in the Cotsen collection of American basketry of the Racine Art Museum, Racine, Wisconsin. His work has been featured in numerous publications including the magazines "Fiberarts" and "American Style" and The Complete Book of Gourd Craft and 500 Baskets. In April, one of his gourd baskets was featured on the cover of a new book, New and Different Materials for Coiling and Weaving. In addition to exhibiting at various galleries and art festivals, he also teaches workshops ahd classes both locally and nationally. For more information, view his website , The Julian Arts Guild provides monthly, diverse demonstrations, workshops and presentations that are "Open To The Public."

Please join us on Tuesday, July 24 at 6pro for an adventure in creativity with free refreshments provided. A Week Without Facebook I'd like to challenge all of the Julian residents to go a week without Facebook. I am going to do the same, so are you in? Taking a break--or a fast, if you will--from the most populated social network in the world is always a good thing; especially if you spend gobs of time on it like I do. If you don't, then you probably don't need to take this break, but unfortunately some of us do. On, they reported that the average American spends eight hours a day on Facebook, according to one study. Eight hours a day! That's more hours than some people sleep each night (which begs the question: are people staying up all night on Facebook?). So if you're one .of those people that spend hours and hours a day on Facebook, maybe you should take a little break. Starting today, by Emily Hockett (July 11, 2012) that's exactly what I am going to do. And as a few of you already know, I have deactivated my account. I am, however, leaving Van's account active for him to be able to communicate with his relatives. However, I am the one who is "fasting" from Facebook, so he is not at al tempted to spend hours on it like am. There's a little temptation there to visit his account, so I am going to have to hold myself accountable. Also, those of you reading this will hold me accountable as well. You'll be forced to do other things that do not get done when you're on Facebook; I am looking forward to reading books and doing my nails. I think this week f is going to be one of the most productive, and I'll be back to tell you how it all went.

Eleanor donated the profits for this show to the Julian Woman's Club for their many Charities. Eleanor is a member of the club. This is the fourth year Eleanor has presented and donated the profits from the show to the locals here in Julian and nearby towns. Each year the show highlights a different book she has written. Eleanor Burns posing with one of the attendees photo by Brian Stutell Her show this year "Tales of the First Ladies" was informative and very entertaining. Attendees had the honor to meet with: Mary and Abe Lincoln, Martha Washington, & Eleanor Roosevelt and even the America Eagle plus two lovely ladies from Japan all dressed in their colorful Kimonos with umbrellas and fans. The attendees were shown the quilts designed for several first ladies and then shown how to make those quilt squares with Eleanor's quick and easy methods. The attendees were encouraged to sing along to some of the old fashioned campaign son gs and assist Eleanor with her presentation. A hilarious time was had by all. After the show Eleanor was available to sign any of her books and the attendees could purchase fabric and supplies for their quilting needs. We celebrated her birthday-and also her induction into the Quilters Hall of Fame in Marion, Indiana on July 21st this year. Her induction is really an honor for her because it is usually awarded to winners who have passed on before they are inducted. Needless to say she is very much alive! Eleanor also taught and assisted members of the Julian Woman's Club quilting group at her studio here in Julian, in the making of the gorgeous "Tales of First Ladies" quilt that was raffled off at the quilt show on July 4th. The Lucky winner was one of the Julian Woman's Club's members this year: Rose Mary Gossman-Congratulations Rose Mary!! Were we ever surprised when her name was drawn out of the barrel by Fireman Cornette after he mixed up the tickets over and over again!
