When I got married, my Mama told me marriage is like a garden---you have to weed it, fertilize it and take care of it every day.

After I had my twins, my mama gave me another good piece of advice---PAY AS MUCH ATTENTION TO YOUR HUSBAND as you do those girls.

I wonder how many relationships could benefit from Mama's advice?   If you are lucky enough to find love, nurture it. 

I noticed a piece of information in Reader's Digest some time back.   They did a poll and found that 92% of women and 90% of men consider themselves good communicators.
When women are asked if their partner is a good communicator, 33% say NO.
When men are asked the same question, 25% say NO.
Clearly, we still have work to be done... smile.

 21 Truly Insane Stories Behind Your Favorite Foods
Are you eating pink slime and don't know it?
The meat industry likes to call it "lean finely textured beef," but after ABC News ran a story on it, the public just called it what it looks like — pink slime, a mixture of waste meat and fatty parts from higher-quality cuts of beef that have had the fat mechanically removed. Afterwards, it's treated with ammonia gas to kill Salmonella and E. coli bacteria. Then it gets added to ground beef as a filler. Food microbiologists and meat producers insist that it's safe, but given the public's reaction to the ABC News report, there's an "ick" factor we just can't overcome. The primary producer of pink slime just announced that it's closing three of the plants where pink slime is produced, and Kroger, Safeway, Food Lion, McDonald's and the National School Lunch Program (among others) have all pulled it from their product offerings.

Organic ground beef is prohibited from containing pink slime, per National Organic Program standards, so it's your safest bet. If you can't find organic, ask the butcher at your grocery store whether their products contain the gunk.

If you think chocolate can't be savory, you have never had mole sauce!
Kitchen Window — Chocolate: Out Of The Box, Into The Frying Pan : NPR

One time, we were at the Grand Canyon and stopped for lunch at a little place with lots of cars outside.   I saw waitresses carrying bowls of something hot and this delicious looking bread.   I looked around and everyone practically was eating the same thing.  So that's what I ordered and found out later this is the bread.   A Bison stew was in the bowl.  I ate every bite.

Indian Frybread

4 cups of flour
1 tbs. baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 tbs. powdered milk
1 ½ cups warm water
1 cup shortening
Extra flour to flour your hands

Put flour in bowl, add baking powder, salt and powdered milk. Mix.
Mix in warm water to form dough.
Cover hands in flour.
Knead dough by hand until soft but not sticky. Cover with a cloth and let stand for 15 minutes.
Shape dough into balls about 2 inches across then flatten by patting and stretching the dough.
Melt shortening (or lard) about an inch deep in frying pan. When hot put dough in pan. Fry one side till golden brown, then turn and fry the other.
This is a wonderful bread that can be used as a dessert by topping with honey, powdered sugar, etc. or can be used for main dishes such as topping with taco ingredients for an "Indian Taco".

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.

Valentine's Day | Reader's Digest

If grownups have trouble figuring out what love is and where to find it in the right places, then maybe they should seek the wisdom of wee bairns:

"When you fall in love, I think you're supposed to get shot with an arrow or something, but the rest of it isn't supposed to be so painful." (Harlen, 8)

"Yesterday I kissed a girl in a private place... we were behind a tree." (Cary, 7)

"On the first date, most people tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date." (Mike, 9)

"It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need somebody to clean up after them." (Lynette, 9)

"Falling in love is like an avalanche where you have to run for your life." (Roger, 9)

"Lovers hold hands to make sure their rings don't fall off because they paid good money for them." (Dave, 8)

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

'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!'

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