Christmas -closed for the season
The theme of my page is one point from a bible
text, Philippians 4:8 “whatsoever things are true, whatsoever
things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are
pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good
report; if there be any virtue, if there be any praise, think on
I would like to thank my visitors for their time, which is always one of
our most precious commodities.
A woman’s Page ~for women. Inspiration and Information
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades. A mode of conduct, a standard of courage, discipline, fortitude and integrity can do a great deal to make a woman beautiful.
~ Jacqueline Bisset
I’d like to personally greet you.
My site is personal,and it is written
to give you the content of my accumulated experiences. Although a lot of it is for my own entertainment, too.
Welcome to the 2010 edition of my site. This whole adventure began on Geocities servers, which then became Yahoo-Geocities, and if you have not yet heard the news: that part of the internet will be no more. No more free websites on Geocities: the end of an era you might say. For this site it means that I will bring the rest of the pages here. The Garden Pages have had their own domain for some time now (since 2006)
and are thriving. The Celt page will be given new code, and perhaps the Hungarian pages. The lifelights should take on….New life Once I start working on them I have ideas for a new ways to present the wise sayings and humorous tidbits that have made up that part of the old site. This should keep me busy well into 2010.
The Old “Web Help” is returning!!! Soon after I had jumped full fledged into updating and creating new pages on my website, I had found that there were many others who could benefit from what I had learned … links to the best problem solving pages, or what features I found for a webiste, or just how to do things online. That was scrapped fairly early on after I started to do more blogging. But now it seems there is a whole new group of people wanting to start out and in need of newbie advice.
So, the blog that I have on this site is becoming the NEW Web Help. I haven’t done a lot with it yet, it is that new. But you can look at it,
Ilona’s Reflecting Pool- Web Help. Check it out.
The section on woman’s fitness, Body Beautiful, has gotten the most attention, and reflecting the needs I have in my own life, this part of the site will see more more additional pages. this fitness section was always about a holistic approach to being healthy in mind and body, with a healthy body image, not the popular artificial one. No airbrushing here!
Expect the site to get renovated throughout the
year. The blogs are always fresh, so if you want something “today”,
check those! While this site is always evolving, I would say that the gardening part has the largest share
of subject matter. It has its own domain now: http://ilonasgarden.com Ilona’s Garden
The Projects That Grew:
Everything is gradually being renewed… , in fact, this is to be a whole new site worked on from scratch, although there are no new graphics that I am offering. Check out the Bible Study area.
Blogging has been my main venture- I think that is the future for all personal website expression. this website is taking on some of those aspects.

The net has greatly changed in a lot of ways over the past few years, but some things remain true about my site: it is personal, it is
written to give you the content of my accumulated experiences. If you could support my internet activities with Amazon purchases through the access from my pages I would appreciate it -I finally made enough to pay for the domain name here as an affiliate, but this could be supported further with help from visitors to the site. I have a cool aStore to check out.
Last year,I worked hard to renew the site… this year even more intensively. The Garden site, Ilona’s Garden is getting most of the work and attention.
The Childbirth section remains at it’s same url. I have moved Loving Christmas totally to its own domain, lovingchristmas.com. You might say I’ve been very busy working on all this! Yes, you certainly could say that. I’m very excited about the possibilities.
For one thing I can have my own message board eventually, and the whole setup is scads easier to update and make new additions. So that means more for you, my dear visitors. I feel badly to have so neglected this site, but I am really tired of the annoying ad styles. Not that I am complaining because geocities was very good to me over the years with free and very stable hosting.
I think it is great to start out on, but my own domain has been long overdue. myreflectingpool.com -in case you forgot the name. Still in the works, but I am steadily improving it. So update your bookmarks, since I will link the garden site from here, but it has its own domain that you can bookmark, and the Christmas sites are on their own domain. It may be a month or two until everything has checked out.

section to those cultures, Irish, Scot, and Welsh. Another page which must be moved here from geocities, sometime in 2010
My Opinions :
“We are called to be women. The fact that I am a woman does
not make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that I am
a Christian does make me a different kind of woman. For I have
accepted God’s idea of me, and my whole life is an offering back
to Him of all that I am and all that He wants me to be.”
