SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'
my mother was a girl, they relied on herbs and old wives's tales to keep
healthy. My grandmother was known as a "doctor" of sorts
and she advised other people what to do for certain things and she kept
"medicines" on hand to sell. My Mom told me at the
beginning of winter, she had to wear pieces of the dried root,
asafoetida, around her neck on a string and she couldn't take it off
until spring. It was very stinky. I have no idea where they got
such a thing but I've seen a picture of the plant and remember seeing
it around my grandmother's house although it comes from
Asia. My mother didn't use it on me and my siblings but she
did believe in a big dose of cod liver oil once a week all through the
winter and I never got flu until I got to be an adult and wasn't
taking the cod liver oil. Mama would often remind me I
should be taking my cod liver oil. Hmmmmmmmm...maybe I should

Unauthorized and 403 Forbidden are two closely related HTTP status
codes related to the server’s inability to give you the data you are
requesting. When the web site you are visiting gives you a 401 error,
it means that you have not properly authenticated yourself with the

indicates that (authorized or not) you still do not have the proper

My husband and I purchased an old home in Northern New York State from two elderly sisters.
Winter was fast approaching and the years first snow came early and I was concerned about the house’s lack of insulation.
“If they could live here all those years, so can we!” my husband confidently declared.
One January night the temperature plunged to below zero, and we woke up to find interior walls covered with frost.
My husband called the sisters to ask how they had kept the house warm. After a rather brief conversation, he hung up.
“For the past 30 years,” he muttered, “they’ve spent the winters in Florida.”
Since I've moved to Florida, I don't have to do this anymore
Thought for Today
It is extremely embarrassing to come to your senses and find that you have none.
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
All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer. It isn't.
Billy Graham's Prayer for Our Nation
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!'
