Dragon Reading and some dip to snack on while you read.

Imagine two surgeons, a man and woman, who want to be the best and highest paid in the world. They go to Vietnam, get divorced, and she is captured by the North Vietnamese and made a "prisoner" in a reeducation camp. During this time, she learns the true value of life, after being caught in a bombing raid, two attempted rapes, loss of her best friend, and more. It is a story that is strictly imaginative but laced with truths of the good and bad of humanity.

Dragon Taco Dip



  1. In a bowl, combine the beans and taco seasoning. Cut a large hole in the corner of a pastry or plastic bag; fill with bean mixture. Trace a dragon shape (about 16 in. x 10 in.) onto waxed paper (see diagram below); cut out. Place pattern on an 18-in. x 12-in. covered board. Pipe bean mixture around pattern. Remove pattern. Pipe remaining bean mixture within dragon outline; spread to fill.
  2. Set aside 1 tablespoon sour cream. Spread remaining sour cream over bean mixture. Top with cheese, tomatoes, olives, guacamole and lettuce. For the eye, spoon reserved sour cream onto head; top with the olive.
  3. Place Taco Chip Triangles along back and top of head. With a sharp knife, cut red pepper into a flame shape (see diagram); position below mouth. Serve with additional dippers. Yield: 6-8 servings.
