CHRISTMAS 2006

HELLO,

Dear Family Members, Friends and Visitors,  

 

The Christmas season is here again and this is our usual Christmas newsletter, even though, it is a little late. Despite the inflation in our economy, the shops are packed full again with Christmas goods - from cards to carols, CDs and gift hampers.

 

There are a few changes in our family website which you may like to note. Here we go.

 

1. OUR OLD AND NEW FREE SITES

We are experimenting with a move to a new site at SITESLED - http://oloruntobas.sitesled.com. It is a free site with no banner adverts. But we have learnt from experience that when you move and your visitors can't find you for sometime, they are as good as gone. Therefore, we will retain the old site at http://oloruntoba0.tripod.com/index.html for sometime and let our visitors compare the two. In short, the site at http://oloruntobas.sitesled.com may become our main site if our visitors think it is better. Our visitors will find that our pages there download faster because there are no adverts to download. Help us to make up our mind by comparing the two sites and tell us what you think.

 

We have improved the navigation of both sites and redesigned the Archive and other pages to make them easier to search.

 

2. OUR PHOTO GALLERY

In this update, we have sixty photographic collections grouped into ten classes. Each class is labeled appropriately.  The new arrangement, as before, makes it easier to edit and expand the gallery as required.

 

3. ARTS AND CULTURE

In this update we present two articles on women fashion in Nigeria. The articles are on the use of Ankara material in women dress designs. Read more in Wearing Ankara The beauty of Ankara lies in the fact that it is simple and flexible. Some are combined with satin, net, ribbon, roses and appliqués. Next is the introduction of black materials in women dresses.

 

The second article is on the combination of black and black in women dress designs. This combination produces a beautiful sight. In other words, black and black is simply dynamic. Designers call this Black Angel. You will find these articles and accompanying photos in our Arts and Culture section.

 

4. NIGERIAN RECIPES

This Christmas, grandma did not introduce any new recipe for our Christmas Lunch. We had rice and fried turkey garnished with spinach, and "dodo" (fried plantains). Our appetizers and soups were selections from existing recipes.

 

5. LETTERS FROM USA 17

Our old visitors are familiar with the series "Letters from USA" which Bunmi sends home periodically from the USA. The latest is number 17.

 

6. AND NOW, A SHORT LETTER FROM SOUTH AFRICA

Hello Everyone,

Compliments of the season to all. We as a family want to thank God for the year 2006. The Lord showed us His mercy and His grace. Mummy retired, Ehi had surgery, we started in a new place, Akin was elevated Internationally, Bunmi became more interested in teaching.....The list goes on. We are counting our blessings and we know that if it had not been for the Lord on our side we would not be here. Our prayer is that, we will all welcome 2007 in Jesus name. Gods favour will descend on us and ours and everything we touch will receive favour in Jesus name. God will exalt our horn above that of our peers and most importantly the Lord will bless us all to be a blessing unto our generation. The best is yet to come.

I want to encourage us all with these Biblical verses;

" Isa 26:3, You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You; because he trusts in You".

 

" Isa 26:4, Trust in Jehovah forever; for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength".

 

" Deu 8:18, But you shall remember Jehovah your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, so that He may confirm His covenant which He has sworn to your fathers, as it is today".

 

" Rom 8:28, And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose". A very Merry Christmas and Blessed New Year to you all.

from Yinka and the Mo's.

NOW IT IS OUR TURN TO SAY, MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR IN ADVANCE TO YOU ALL.
