SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'

My Grandmother used to have this white wicker swing on her front porch she had covered with a quilt her mother made.  Many happy hours of my childhood was spent sitting on that swing with my Grandmother or both my Grandmother and my Mama.
It was where we rested and talked and sometimes napped.  She had pots of flowers all over the place and her roses, just below the porch, wafted up for us all to enjoy.
Homemade ice cream was made on that porch and many a watermelon sat in a tub of ice.

 Quilts covered everything in the house especially chairs and couches.  I have no idea what they thought would happen to the sofa and chairs if you didn't cover them but that's another story.   My Granny and My Grandmother made quilts... it was their thing.   When Granny died, she gave her four children all her quilts.   When my Grandmother died, she gave them all to my Mama and when Mama died, she gave them all to me.   And here I am living in Florida where you never need a quilt.
Never you mind... I cherish those quilts... smile.

For my mom
Happy Mother's Day In Heaven

4 Things you might not have known about your Cell Phone

For all the folks with cell phones.  (This should be printed and kept in your car, purse, and wallet.  Good information to have with you.) There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies.  Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival.
Check out the things that you can do with it:

FIRST:  (Emergency)
The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112.  If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile network and there is an Emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly, this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked.  Try it out.

SECOND:  (Hidden Battery Power)
Imagine your cell battery is very low.  To activate, press the keys *3370#.  Your cell phone will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery.  This reserve will get charged when you charge your cell phone next time.

THIRD:  (How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?  )
To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following Digits on your phone:*#06# .  A 15-digit code will appear on the screen.  This number is unique to your handset.  Write it down and keep it somewhere safe.  If your phone is stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code.  They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless.
You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either.  If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.

FOURTH:  (Free Directory Service for Cells)
Cell phone companies are charging us $1.00 to $1.75 or more for 411 information calls when they don't have to.  Most of us do not carry a telephone directory in our vehicle, which makes this situation even more of a problem.  When you need to use the 411 information option, simply dial:(800) FREE411 or (800) 373-3411without incurring any charge at all.  Program this into your cell phone now.This is sponsored by McDonald's.

Add a mixture of vinegar, sugar and salt. The wasps are attracted to the sweet and sour scent yet bees don’t seem to be attracted by this sour mixture whereas a honey mix would be a fatal attractant.

Keep the wasp trap out of the rain as it will quickly fill with rainwater.



The down-side of this wasp trap is it also attracts and traps beneficial insects such as lacewing and hoverflies which are a natural pest control of aphids.

He says, "Just for fun, Ma, I'm going to bring over 3 women and you try
and guess which one I'm going to marry."
The mother agrees.
The next day, he brings 3 beautiful women into the house and sits
them down on the couch and they chat for a while. He then says,
"Okay, Ma. Guess which one I'm going to marry."
She immediately replies, "The redhead in the middle."
"That's amazing, Ma. You're right. How did you know?"
"I don't like her."

“Hey, Mom, can I tell you something?” puffed five-year-old Terry, as he rushed around the store with his mother.
“No, Terry, I'm too busy,” said his mother.
A little while later he tried again, “Hey, Mom…”
“Don’t bother me. I’m trying to think,” his mother interrupted.
Finally at home, Terry said, “Now can I tell you?”
“Oh, yes, what is it?” said his mother in exasperation.
“I wanted to tell you that your pants have a big rip in the back.”



Out of the mouth of babes
When I was six months pregnant with my third child, my three year old came into the room when I was just getting ready to get into the shower. She said, "Mommy, you are getting fat!" I replied, "Yes, honey, remember Mommy has a baby growing in her tummy."

"I know," she replied, but what's growing in your butt?"

A man on his Harley was riding along a California beach when suddenly the sky clouded above his head and, in a booming voice, God said, 'because you have tried to be faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish..'

The biker pulled over and said, 'Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can ride over anytime I want.'

God replied, 'Your request is materialistic; think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking; the supports required reaching the bottom of the Pacific and the concrete and steel it would take! I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly things. Take a little more time and think of something that could possibly help mankind.'

The biker thought about it for a long time. Finally, he said, 'God, I wish that I, and all men, could understand women; I want to know how she feels inside, what she's thinking when she gives me the silent treatment, why she cries, what she means when she says nothing's wrong, why she snaps and complains when I try to help, and how I can make a woman truly happy.

God replied: 'You want two lanes or four on that bridge?

"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!
'Heavenly 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!'
