    Self Confidence

    Using Stewart's formula, we will discuss how to develop self confidence skills as dynamic and interesting leaders.

    As usual, we will also discuss two delicious recipes for sharing. The "safe" recipe will be Pasta Primavera, and the "adventure" recipe will be Smoked Salmon Casserole.

    Come Out of Her My People

    in Current Events

    In the name of the everlasting Father, He that causes all that exist to exist. He that is self existent, He who directs the sun ships of millions of years, and he who made time the seed of the universe.  Known among the ancient Chemites as Amen Ra, and Aton, among the Hebrews as Ain Soph, Yahweh, and Elohim, among the Christians as Lord, God, and Jehovah, among the Muslims and Islamic world as Allah the one GOD, among the Rastafarians as JAH – Rasta Fari.  I bare witness that all these names refer to the same "One" Almighty GOD and it is to him whom I give reverence and to whom I submit. I boldly proclaim that we, the descendants of those Black Men & Women who survived the transatlantic slave trade are the lost 13th tribe, born in North America and are of a Nubian Chemetic lineage.

    I bare witness that The blood of all the nations of the earth flow through our veins.   I greet you in the ancient  Holy words of Peace! Hotep, Shalom, As Salaam Alakum, Habari Gani, A la fi ya, and Ai Shay.
