Suthern Livin'
It's so hard being a mother of grown children.   They are too big to tell them what to do so Mom just has to keep her mouth shut and hope for the best.  
 My daughter just got a fabulous job offer in Texas which she accepted.   TEXAS!   I live in Florida.   So she packs up and leaves and I'm in constant contact as she goes from Florida to Texas, as any sane mother would do.   Her car dies on the freeway in Texas.   I'm in a controlled panic edging in on an uncontrolled panic because it was Labor Day Weekend!  Who is going to be open???     We contact road service and they give her a list of 5 places to call.  All of them are closed but one and that one says he is wayyyy busy.    She sweet talks him (just like her mother taught her to do) and he says he will come as soon as he can.    By this time, she has a number of people who have stopped to help her.   I've always loved Texas and her people but now I love them more.   No less than 3 cars of people waited with her until the man came to help her.   When he got there, the group  watched him put in a new alternator and battery.  When she was on her way, she had made some new friends in her new city.   I'm so grateful to the nice people who saw a young woman on the side of the road and stopped to help in extremely hot and sticky weather on a holiday.   The Yellow Rose of Texas is my new favorite song !  


The difference between life and school ?
In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test.
In life, you are given a test that teaches you a lesson.

  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.
And Finally....
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) 373-3411     
without incurring any charge at all.  Program this into your cell phone now.

Washing your hands may seem rather unsophisticated compared to today’s medical advances, but it works. Washing your hands reduces the rate of bacterial and viral infections by ⅓ to ½, and gastrointestinal infections by 80%. “Frequent hand-washing is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of infectious disease,” say the Centers for Disease Control.
You should wash your hands before, during, and after food preparation; before eating; after using the bathroom; and after touching pets, animals, or waste of any kind. To wash your hands: apply soap and rub your hands together vigorously for 10-15 seconds, not forgetting under your finger nails, rinse and dry your hands after.

Bring Back The Monarchs

Monarchs need your help NOW! This year AGAIN marks the lowest number of over wintering Monarchs in the Mexican mountains in the last 20 years... and we have only known about their over wintering sites for a little more than 20 years!. There are 97% fewer than at their recorded height and 50% less than there were last year. This is a back to back 50% decline in their overwintering numbers. Researchers are worried we may lose a large part of their migration this year if immediate action is not taken and severly threaten all Monarchs if the pattern continues.

Everyone was seated around the table as the food was being served.   When little Logan received his plate, he started eating right away.
"Logan, wait until we say our prayer," his mother reminded him.
"I don't have to," the little boy replied.
"Of course you do," his mother insisted, "we say a prayer before eating at our house."
"That's at our house," Logan explained, "but this is Grandma's house and she knows how to cook."

I Just Realized Something:
My dog sleeps about 20 hours a day.
He has his food prepared for him.
His meals are provided at no cost to him.
He visits the Dr. once a year for his checkup and again during the year, if any medical needs arise.
For this he pays nothing, and nothing is required of him.
He lives in a nice neighborhood in a house that is much larger than he needs, but he is not required to do any upkeep.
If he makes a mess, someone else cleans it up.
He has his choice of luxurious places to sleep.
He receives these accommodations absolutely free.
He is living like a king and has absolutely no expenses whatsoever.
All of his costs are picked up by others who earn a living.
I was just thinking about all this, and suddenly it hit me like a ton of bricks ~

A priest was invited to attend a house party.
 Naturally, he was properly dressed and wearing his Priest's Collar.
 A little boy kept staring at him the entire evening.
 Finally, the priest asked the little boy what he was staring at.
 The little boy pointed to the priest's neck.
 When the priest finally realized what the boy was pointing at, he asked the boy;
"Do you know why I am wearing that?"
 The boy nodded his head yes, and replied, "It kills fleas and ticks for up to three months".
