Ahhhhh June.  I remember long time ago my boyfriend (husband now) took me out to his father's farm on a moonlit June night.    We put our palet down on the ground to lay on so we could look right up at the stars.  
The stars were so bright !    I could hear the cows mooing and I asked what if a cow steps on us?     He said cows could see in the dark.  Do you suppose he had spooning on his mind instead of  looking at the stars?  And yes I believed that cows could see in the dark. LOL

I am so blessed.  I've been way over-blessed.  At 64 years old, I look forward to going to bed every night so I can wake up in the morning and see what blessing is going to come my way that day.   Because you never, ever know what God's got in store for you.

So sad--Printed below so you can read it

In 2004, the New York Times wrote an article about the loneliest whale in the world.  Scientist have been tracking her since 1992 and they discovered the problem:
She isn't like any other baleen whale.  Unlike all other whales, she doesn't have friends.  She doesn't have family.  She doesn't belong to any tribe, pack or gang.  She doesn't have a mate.  She never had one.  Her songs come in groups of two to six calls, lasting for 5 or 6 seconds each but her voice is unlike any other baleen whale.   She is unique.  A normal whale communicates between 12 and 25hz.   She sings at 52hz.  You see, that's precisely the problem.  No other whales can hear her.  Everyone of her desperate calls to communicate remain unanswered.   Each cry ignored.  And with every lonely song, she becomes sadder and more frustrated, while going deeper in despair as years go by.

The 12 Worst Ingredients used in Pet Food
Some ingredients are hard to digest and can cause skin problems. Other included chemicals create imbalances and can lead to behavioral changes such as aggression. Aflatoxins, which are considered to be one of the leading cancer-causing agents, can be found in any dog food containing corn or corn byproducts. Every pet owner wishes their pet could live longer-and they can, if you avoid these 12 worst ingredients used in pet food.

Glyceryl Monostearate is a preservative that is dangerous because of the high level of uncertainty when it comes to chemical additives. It has been found to contain to contain high levels of BHT (see below) and glycerol distearate.
Phosphoric Acid is and unnecessary ingredient used for flavoring, but is also found in detergents, fertilizers, and pharmaceuticals.
Propylene Glycol can be found in antifreeze and hydraulic solutions that is used to keep wet food from drying out. It is extremely toxic in high amounts, so much so that the European Union has not even cleared it as a safe food additive.
Corn Gluten is an ingredient used for binding things together and provides little to no nutritional value for your dog.
Wheat Gluten is also a binding agent stemming from a human process byproduct that provides no nutritional value and therefore is unnecessary.
Brewers Rice is a very low quality ingredient that is a processed rice product lacking all the nutrients that brown or whole grain rice would have.
Chicken Byproduct Meal is an unacceptable substitute for protein. Byproduct essentially means anything coming from the animal that is NOT meat. In this case, the chicken's head, feet, and bones.
Fish Meal cannot be determined as a quality additive because it could be coming diseased or dying fish. It has been banned from human consumption because it almost always contains the harmful chemical, Ethoxyquin.
Beef and Bone Meal is an extremely low quality ingredient composed of the portions of a cow that were not acceptable for human consumption and lack vital ingredients.
Corn Gluten Meal ­is dangerous for the reasons mentioned above. Corn is extremely hard to digest and this byproduct has been found to raise the level of aflatoxins, a serious cancer-causing agent.
Blood Meal ­is used as a protein booster and comes from animal blood. The scary part is that you have no way of knowing what type of animal the blood came from, what hormones or medications they were introduced to, or how healthy the animal was.
BHT is used as a preservative that is listed as a possible human carcinogen and has been banned from human use in many countries other than the United States. It has been found to cause tumors and potentially cancer.

If you buy dried mushrooms, here's how: To resconsititute dry mushrooms add boiling water to a bowl and soak the mushrooms for 20-30 minutes. The resulting broth is very flavorful and can be used in soup preparation or beef stew.
I buy fresh mushrooms on sale, cook them up in wine and garlic and freeze in baggies.

My Favorite Animal
Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, "Fried chicken."  She said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right, because everyone else laughed.  My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal.
I told my dad what happened, and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love animals very much.
I do too. Especially chicken, pork and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office. I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. Then he told me not to do it again.

The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was.  I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, so I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken.  She sent me back to the principal's office. He laughed, and told me not to do it again.

I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn't like it when I am.

Today, my teacher asked me to tell her what famous person I admired most.
I told her, "Colonel Sanders." Guess where I am now...

A Sunday School teacher began her lesson with a question, "Boys and girls, what do we know about God?"
A hand shot up in the air. "He is an artist!" said the kindergarten boy.
"Really? How do you know?" the teacher asked.
"You know - Our Father, who does art in Heaven... "

How Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord Ps33:12

Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America”

Diamond Rio: In God We Still Trust -

"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
'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!'
