grew up with open windows and an attic fan. NO AIR
CONDITIONING. My kids think I lead a very deprived life
with no iPhone or TV. I had no idea I was missing anything.
During the day, I was out running around and climbing trees and
playing football with the boys. My Mom had a hula skirt she let
me have from a soldier in WWII. It must have been funny for
the neighbors to see me. I was postive I was going to grow
up and be a hula girl. At
Formosa tree outside my bedroom window perfumed my whole room and I
thought all was right with my world.
A history of air conditioning.

Do I need sunscreen with more than 30 SPF?
Short answer: No
Sunscreens with an SPF (sun protection factor) of 30 block about 97% of
while sunscreens with an SPF of higher than 30 block 97%-98%.
It's more important that you choose "broad-spectrum" sunscreen, meaning
it protects against both UVB and UVA rays.
Sunbathers also need to apply a generous amount of sunscreen in order
to get the full benefit of the SPF.

you know that tomatoes are the most popular homegrown vegetable? You
probably aren't surprised. The vine plants are easy to grow in
containers on patios or decks or in a simple backyard patch of dirt... and
a fresh, homegrown tomato tastes light-years better than what you'd get
in the grocery store. Would you like your tomatoes to taste even
sweeter? Here's what to do: Lower the acidity of your tomatoes by
sprinkling baking soda (one-quarter to one-half cup, depending on the
size of your plants) around your maturing plants and working it into
the soil (about an inch or two below the surface). Do this once a week,
and your tomatoes will taste sweeter.

two-year-old cousin scared us one summer by disappearing during our
lakeside vacation. More than a dozen relatives searched the forest and
shoreline, and everyone was relieved when we found Alex playing calmly
in the woods.
"Listen to me, Alex," his mother said sharply. "From now on when you
want to go someplace, you tell Mommy first, okay?"
Alex thought about that for a moment and said, "Okay. Disney World."
woman in her eighties made the evening news because she was getting
married for the fourth time. The following day she was being
interviewed by a local TV station, and the commentator asked about what
it felt to be married again at that age and would she share part of her
previous experiences, since it seem quite unique the fact that her new
husband was a ‘funeral director.’ After a short time to think, a smile
came to her face and she proudly explained that she had first married a
banker when she was in her twenties, in her forties she married a
circus ring master, and in her sixties she married a pastor and now in
her eighties, a funeral director. The amazed commentator asked her why
she had married men with such diverse careers. With a smile on her face
she explained, ‘I married one for the money, two for the show, three to
get ready, and four to go.’
her summer job, my 18-year-old daughter arranged interviews at several
day-care centers. At one meeting, she sat down on one of the kiddie
seats, no simple task for most people. The interview went well, and at
the end, the day-care center director asked the standard question, "Can
you give me one good reason we should hire you?"
"Because I fit in the chairs." She got the job.

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!'
