Mom engaged in many activities to keep her mind sharp, including a lifelong love of playing bridge, mahjong and knitting.

Coming Up Roses: Pretty purple rose boasts heavenly fragrance - Los Altos Town Crier
In addition to its unique and striking dark-purple color, the Ebb Tide’s intense heavenly fragrance is a major selling point. Its scent is a very strong combination of clove and citrus blossoms. The classic rose smell is rich and elegant. Its smoked, deep plum-purple color and strong fragrance are rare to find in average bouquets.
Ebb Tide has a complicated parentage that includes three mauve roses: Big Purple (Stephens 1986), Blue Nile (Delbard 1980) and Sweet Chariot (Moore 1985).
Ebb Tide flowers change in response to temperature and light. In the early spring and late fall, when the temperature is cooler, the flower is a deep, smoky purple. In the hot summer, it transforms into a violet-red. In the same blooming, however, you can somehow still find the beautiful deep purple hidden in the shade, whereas others bloom in a mauve color.
I planted an Ebb Tide rose in a partly shaded area of my garden, and it looks happy there. The rose makes an attractive statement in the garden or in cut flower arrangements.
The flowers open very quickly when the temperature is hot. Cut flowers earlier to make your bouquets, right when the buds start to open. You can mix the Ebb Tide with other colorful flowers to make an eye-catching bouquet.
Trust me, you will love them. They are unforgettable and incredibly lovely.

Cause of Los Altos High grad's death remains a mystery - Los Altos Town Crier
Susie Brubaker-Cole, Stanford’s vice provost for student affairs. “We can now share that Weiner was a sophomore planning to major in history when he passed away. … I’d like to thank (Theta Delta Chi) for opening its home to the university so we could support those seeking counseling. All of us are heartbroken about this terrible loss.”
Members of the Theta Delta Chi fraternity declined to provide a comment before the Town Crier’s press deadline, but the Stanford release called Weiner a “deeply cherished member of our community.”
“We will miss his open mind and inviting presence,” the statement continued. “We are all mourning the loss of our beloved friend.”
The Stanford release also included comments from the Weiners, who did not reply to the Town Crier’s interview request prior to deadline. They described him as a well-read individual with interests that varied from politics and current events to soccer, hip-hop and rap. Weiner taught himself how to produce an album and was preparing to do so before his death.
“His family has been struck by the enormous outpouring of grief from the many people he touched throughout his life,” Brubaker-Cole said. “It is often said that a beautiful soul is never forgotten; to me, nothing is more true at a time like this.”
Weiner’s older sister, Ya’el, also attended Stanford, and his younger sister attends school nearby, according to Brubaker-Cole. No mention of the family’s Los Altos residency was included, but online records indicate they live in the city.
Mourning his loss
Those who knew Weiner at Los Altos High shared some of their thoughts with the Town Crier and on social media.
Los Altos High Principal Wynne Satterwhite touched on his creative side, exposed through his involvement with the school’s Broken Box Theatre Company, and said Weiner was a “dedicated student who challenged himself academically.”
“Eitan was a young man of humor, intelligence and great kindness who touched the lives of everyone he met,” Satterwhite said. “Students and staff who knew Eitan mourn his loss, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family.”
Los Altos High drama teacher Nancy Moran, a member of Broken Box’s Facebook page, posted a link to Brubaker-Cole’s statement and called the loss... Jan 4, 2020
MYSTERY PLANT: Mystery Plant has a sweet, lemony fragrance - Aiken Standard
American word meaning “swamp on a hill.” The natural history (and botany) of these places is fascinating, and a major reason for this is that they naturally undergo periodic fires, and so the plants (and critters) within them have evolved to deal with these curious situations. Pond pines which grow in them produce short, stumpy pinecones, which last on the branches for a long time before shedding their seeds, and then after the seeds are shed. Seed drop happens only when a fire goes through the pocosin, heating the cones. Seeds which make it to the peat will be able to sprout and grow. In a sense, the maturation and longevity of the cones suggests that the plants are “late” in getting their chores done, and thus the scientific name of Pond Pine is Pinus serotina. The word “serotinous” means late, as far as seasonality goes. It’s a good epithet for Pond Pine.Our Mystery Plant, however, is not a pine and is not at all late if you consider its blooming time. In fact, it is really early: Its buds break open during the coldest time of the year, long before any of the spring bloomers are close to flowering. This is a shrub, and a really precocious one … in that its flowers appear early. Now, the Latin adjective “praecox” means early, the opposite of “serotinous,” and of course this is where the English word “precocious” comes from. I’ll go ahead and tell you that the word praecox appears in our Mystery Plant’s scientific name.This plant is native to China and rather commonly grown now...
