SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'

Gator mating season ~ happens every year about this time and the Gators get wild and crazy. So do the people but that's another story. You'll see stories in the paper when they come into someone's house through the cat or dog door or when someone opens their front door to an 11 ft. gator. It's real and it happens. But think about this... they were here first.

Love
http://www.celebrations-online.com/love/


Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old. "To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written. My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more":
1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Change the way you think.

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will. Stay in touch.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. Release your children when they become adults, its their life now

9. Save for retirement starting with your first pay cheque.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye.

16. Take a deep breath It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Just because you believe you are right, doesn't mean you are. Keep an open mind.

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'

27. Always choose life.

28. Forgive everyone everything.

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. Your job is to love your children, not choose who they should love.

35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.

41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

42. The best is yet to come... (Can’t wait to find out what! )

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield..

45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."

Ideas for Project Graduation Activities
Graduation is an important event for high school seniors. It is a step up the ladder of life that signals an end to childhood and the beginning of adulthood. Project Graduation is an event that gives school officials, parents and the community a chance to provide enjoyable activities for students and steer them clear of drugs and alcohol. It provides a safe place for each student to hang out with all of his friends, perhaps for the last time.

If you can grasp that, you'll make a difference."

Creamsicle's were my most favorite thing in the whole world when I was a kid
Creamsicle Cheesecake Recipe
1 graham cracker pie crust
16 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 (6 ounce) can frozen orange juice
1 can sweetened condensed milk
10 ounces Cool Whip
Mix cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk and orange juice with mixer. Fold in Cool Whip. Pour into crust and chill 1 hour. Enjoy.

My recipe for cooking fresh spinach.  Once you taste this, you'll never go back to frozen
WASH spinach leaves no matter if they say it's already been washed. 
Slice an onion and put in a non-aluminum pot (aluminum pots make spinach bitter, who knew?)
Add a little olive oil and cook until the onion is just beginning to cook.  Add a little white wine or chicken broth or even water... just a tiny bit.
Start adding spinach leaves quickly stirring with a wooden spoon just until the spinach is wilted. 
That's it folks.  It's just too delicious to talk about




JOKES AND CARTOONS
Give me a sense of humor, Lord,
Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some humor out of life,
And to pass it on to other folks.


Four high school boys afflicted with spring fever skipped morning classes. After lunch they reported to the teacher that they had a flat tire.

Much to their relief she smiled and said: "Well, you missed a test today so take seats apart from one another and take out a piece of paper."

Still smiling, she waited for them to sit down. Then she said:

"First Question: Which tire was flat?"






Chutzpah is a Yiddish word meaning gall, brazen nerve, effrontery, sheer guts plus arrogance; No other word, and no other language, can do it justice. Example . . .
A little old lady sold pretzels on a street corner for a dollar each. Every day a young man would leave his office building at lunch time and as he passed the pretzel stand he would leave her a dollar, but never take a pretzel.   This charitable gesture went on for more than 3 years. The two of them never spoke.
One day as the young man passed the old lady's stand and left his dollar as usual, the pretzel lady spoke to him. Without blinking an eye, she said: "They're a dollar and a quarter now."
