And, in the evening Kraig was there for the Tai Ji Quan classes. Tuesday afternoon the pool room was a busy place again. And, the multi-purpose room had the Mah Jongg action in the afternoon.

The Cook's Notebook

The peach is a member of the rose family and cousin to apricots, cherries and plums.  Out of hundreds of varieties of peaches, each can be classified as clingstone, freestone or semi-freestone.
Clingstone means that the flesh clings stubbornly to the stone/pit.  Freestone means the stone is easily removed and so that makes it a good choice for eating it fresh.
