SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'
a child of the 50's, my Mama told me NEVER throw away any clothes or shoes
or anything of fashion. She said the style will come
back. What she didn't tell me was it wouldn't fit
! But that's another story... smile. The only
thing I saved that I can wear is my sack dresses. Don't tell me
you don't remember THOSE.
A loose, unbelted dress that hangs straight from the shoulder to the hemline.
laugh... they are coming back, just like Mama said ! Infact,
I hear all the clothes from that whole era is coming back. I hope
you saved yours and I hope you can fit into them!
There are so many things we must protect, but this project is near and dear to my heart.

technology has brought us many benefits, including mosquito traps that
cost hundreds of dollars, but sometimes we overlook simple solutions to
difficult challenges such as mosquito control. When it comes to
controlling pests, research tends to focus on chemicals or concepts
that can be patented. Unless someone can make a profit from an idea,
the public may never become aware of it.
HOMEMADE MOSQUITO TRAP:
200 ml water
50 grams of brown sugar
1 gram of yeast
2-liter plastic bottle
Or US conversion:
1 cup of water
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1. Cut the plastic bottle in half.
2. Mix brown sugar with hot water. Let cool. When cold, pour in the bottom half of the bottle.
3. Add the yeast. No need to mix. It creates carbon dioxide, which attracts mosquitoes.
4. Place the funnel part, upside down, into the other half of the bottle, taping them together if desired.
Wrap the bottle with something black, leaving the top uncovered, and
place it outside in an area away from your normal gathering area.
(Mosquitoes are also drawn to the color black.)
Change the solution every 2 weeks for continuous control.

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."- Ronald Reagan
Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation
THIS MAN SURE HAS A GOOD VIEW OF WHAT'S HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY!
Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek
your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who
call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost
our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited
the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and
called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We
have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected
to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have
abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's
Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with
profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have
ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it
enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us
from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's
help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become
our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'
