Once the water is brought to a boil pour a small amount of the hot water into the teapot to warm to the pot, once the water begins to cool pour out the initial water. Pour the hot water into the teapot and add one bag or one teaspoon (2 grams) of leaves per cup, plus an additional teaspoon or bag ‘for the pot’. Allow the tea to steep for 3 to 7 minutes depending on the type of tea you have selected; the longer the tea is given the stronger the tea will become, do not exceed 7 minutes or the tea may become bitter.
In the distance the Great Cross, over 200 feet tall, reminds spirituality seekers that this is the cradle of Catholic Christianity in America. As you keep walking, you’ll see various monuments to the Catholic faith. The Stations of the Cross are represented by stone memorials; statues of St. Francis of Assisi, St. Joseph, and Father Francisco Lopez de Mendoza Grajales (the priest who orchestrated the first Mass) also dot the mission grounds. The statue of Fr. Lopez is particularly photogenic because it sits along the waterfront at the Lagoon.

Celebrities will start to realize that 2007 was the year of the drunken, arrested celebrity. But, 2008 is the year to get one’s act together. I look for the stars starting to take themselves seriously. Britney will finally get back her children, and make at least one step towards becoming a better mother. Lindsey Lohan and Paris Hilton will try and do something positive to get noticed.
If you don’t have a craft store in your area, or a department store that sells jewelry supplies, check a home improvement store. You’ll fitness evolution metal washers and other metal pieces that are perfect for making the earrings. Just make sure the pieces you choose are very thin, and not too heavy for the magnet. It might help to take the magnet along with you, when you shop for the metal pieces, but fold a piece of fabric between the magnet and the metal washer, to represent the ear. If the magnet will hold the metal piece, with the cloth trapped between them, then the metal piece should be suitable for earrings.
Most European payphones do not have coin slots. They only have calling cards slots. So in the event of an emergency, if you do not have one of these cards, you can be in serious trouble. Plus, payphones are used as public toilets, they are dirty and smelly, and very difficult to find, since there are not many.
Ending drug use in sports. With the Mitchell Report that came out in late 2007, and other steroids news throughout last year, it is time for us to clean up the sporting scene. I predict new standards set in baseball, as well as other sports, for testing players and for regulating the penalties for what happens if you use drugs.
