      Hello, since I do not professionally do hair, I am only faaimilr with what my products and routine are. When I was first a red head, I used to dye my hair using Garnier. You should just go to the store and check the colors out there! I am not faaimilr with the names and it was so long ago I forgot which color I used. You really want to ask a cosmetologist who is a professional for advice! Other than that, just experiment! Sorry I could not be any more help, I wish you the best of luck with your hair.

        . HOWEVER, Woman B claimed she had never said anyithng to A about my wife spreading the rumors and that she was simply concerned about her. She was sorry, apologized, but understood if my wife didn’t trust her as a friend. My wife was hurt, but choose to forgive woman B and move on and attempt to repair things with woman A.The next morning, woman B went to A and told her what my wife had done to her. Woman A was concerned about the accuracy of the information she was getting from B. Woman A asked her again if she was sure that what she had said at the party was true, including the party about my wife telling many different people and maliciously attempting to start the rumors. B said this was all true again, and that my wife was really upset with A and wanted to bring her down with what she said.A week later, my wife tried to talk to woman A to apologize for what was said. Woman A would not even look at my wife. She said she was done with her as a friend. She explained that woman B had come back to her to tell her she had been talking about her AGAIN, and she reiterated about the fact she had been spreading the rumors maliciously and my wife wanted to hurt woman A. None of this was true. Woman A called my wife a slew of fowl language in front of me, in front of dozens of her close friends and in front of many of my wife’s friends. She stated that she was lying because woman B had said these things to her twice, and that she wouldn’t lie.My wife is woman A’s boss. Woman A is letting this effect her work. Woman A has cut off all communication with my wife outside of work. Woman B is now completely avoiding my wife entirely as well as woman B’s husband, who is a close friend of mine.My wife forgave them both for what happened. Several weeks has passed. I have a hard time forgiving these people and wanted them to ever be back at our home. They were both very good friends of my wife’s and now she feels alone and isolated because her two best friends destroyed their friendship. I even lost a close friend. The collateral damage goes very deep, since these were mutual friends of almost everyone we know.My wife wants me to move on, but I have such a hard time with that. My wife was trying to do the biblically accurate thing to hold a fellow sister in christ accountable and her other sister in christ; who was not a new christian, but a strong one, threw it in her face. She broke her trust not once, but twice.I just think she doesn’t need to be friends with these people if this is how they treat their relationships. I don’t feel comfortable having them around my home if this is what they choose to do.What do you think?

      • Lot of smarts in that posting!

      Wow, I think you will be a great OB. It seems like you have a real love for children, falimies, and people in general. Sad to say that those qualities are rare traits in todays world. I believe not just anyone should be in just any job because you could be in a job that you hate and end up making everyone who comes in contact with you at work miserable. You have the joy and care to be great at your job and effect those you will be working around not only by your knowledge , but by your love for what you do.

  2. I just picked up The Magic Room at the library and I read a few pages into it and had to run for the Kleenex.I think I should have known after reading The Last Lecture that it would have been a heart string puller.I always Google the author of the current book I am reading and was shocked to see Mr.Zaslow had passed away.I am so sorry for your loss and he was right in his words–he has beautiful daughters that he loved so much.God bless you all,you are in my prayers.

    Just found out that Jeffrey, my favorite contempary author has passed away. I am in shock. His audio books, and books…make me feel like I’ve lost a friend I never knew. His beginning of the Magic room now, is so touching as I listen to the audio version. 99 percent of my readings are books before 1923..being introduced to Jeffrey’s writing was such so refreshing because his books I could share with my church friends which is not the case in so many current authors. My hearts go out to your whole family. 10/2012

    My immediate reaction to this tragic event was to say “but I was just WITH him.” Jeff and I had become friends in Oklahoma City during an NSNC convention–we shared a cab and wound up talking to each other at the event. And it was just a few months ago that I saw him in San Francisco at a book convention–we instantly reconnected and talked about marketing books, the change in the industry, all of that sort of stuff. I felt that I had found a friend and was looking forward to crossing paths with him. And then I got word in the worst way, a passing reference on Facebook. I just couldn’t believe it.

    Life can sweep you up in its winds–we went into production on a film; I became too busy to post anything here, but I was smart enough to sign up for notifications and have been tracking all the wonderful memories and tributes to the great man that was Jeff. My heart goes out to his family and friends. This is such a heartbreaking loss.

      ik ben het helemaal met paul bleokkr eens. de hele stikstofbenutting moet in kaart worden gebracht. als veehouders minder N aanvoeren en veel meer koolstof aan de koe, mest en land toedienen, dan krijgen we een veel volwaardigere eiwitopbouw in het gras. Gras van sublieme kwaliteit daar kan een koe wat mee!

    I had the great honor and pleasure of meeting Jeff last year, where he spoke on “The Last Lecture”. Beyond that great speech, I was lucky enough to get to meet and speak to him, and was amazed by his humility and warmth and genuine caring about every person he took the time to speak to. He took the time to sign his book, as well as have his picture taken with me (and many others), which was a great honor. Every woman should be lucky enough to have a husband, and every daughter to have a father like him, not to mention his great talent as an author. Those of us involved with the organization he spoke for that day were heartbroken to hear of his loss. While I only met him once, several people I know spent time with him, and we are all heartbroken for his wife and daughters.

    The daffodils came up early this year, maybe they thought you needed the flash of a golden trumpet where you expected only cold soil.

    It was the warmest March ever; maybe the sun thought you needed extra light along the new path.

    You are remembered today. RSD
