Beans About It

Dear Guests...

Thank you for visiting Beans About It.

Our guest book is currrently off-line. We've changed hosting services and we had some problems with spam, so we're taking a look at our options before making the book live again.

We do love hearing from you, so feel free to e-mail us.

Listed below are some highlights from our guestbook entries over the last 2 years.

Missing your "advice" mentor on a lot of things. Going to a Benefits website meeting this afternoon after a long hiatus to see if I can be of service again. Hope all is well, wish me luck. I'm going to need it without you here to guide me. Best wishes to you and Denise.

I have had the pleasure of meeting one of the poets, Denise Benjamin, and found this treasure of a site hidden in her e-mail message to me. I love the style and wit of this site. Denise's frank and simple descontruction of race and it's kissing cousin, nationalism, through the eyes of a little girl that wanted to be an idealized giesha has the touch of magic.

Please drop your guests a line when you schedule another reading.

"Banished" is the unofficial anthem for anal retentives everywhere!

I know, I drive over the border into Pristene every once in awhile just to make sure my bubble wrapped visa hasen't expired.

I have objects that are thirty years old that are packed in their original boxes, taken out, used and returned again.

When the first scratch appears, destroying it's perfection, there's this collapse of reality when I think, it's ruined, I'm careless, It must be replaced.

Hi Lou and Denise!
Miss you and your events. Hope all is well. Life is busy. We have a new family member. He's a three-month old shepherd mix named Luigi. It was a promise kept to my son Charles. He's adorable. Love, Mindy

Caro Denise and Lou, Bonjour!
Loved the poetree and writings about. I'm sure you had a very cool Labor Day, mine was ok. I've misplaced your address, and need it because i'm having a calendar sent to you for 2001, filled with great women!


A tree's leaves found,
Though, they empty be,
May utter profound and
Image immeasurably.

i look forward... Matutinally Yours,
