SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'
"In the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love"
This line is from a poem, “Locksley Hall,” by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

It's the perfect time for love in Florida.   The trees are budded out and I'm sneezing so it looks like Spring to me. 

In fact, I have the latest weather report for you...smile.

Young love is a flame; very pretty, often very hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. The love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals, deep-burning, unquenchable.- Henry Ward Beecher

http://www.history.com/topics/valentines-day

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way than this: where I does not exist nor you, so close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.- Pablo Neruda, “Love Sonnet XVII”

Beginners Quick Reference Guide to Being Online, 2015

Important
What is the difference between http and https?
Don't know how many of you are aware of this difference, but it is worth
sending to any who do not.  The main difference between http:// and
https://
is it's all about keeping you secure. HTTP stands for  Hyper Text
Transfer Protocol.

The S (big surprise) stands for "Secure." If you visit a website or web
page, and look at the address in the web  browser, it will likely begin with the following: http:///.
This means that the website is talking to your browser using the regular "unsecured" language. In other  words, it is possible for someone to "eavesdrop" on your computer's conversation with the website.  If you fill out a form on the website, someone might see the information you send to that site.

This is why you never ever enter your credit card number in an http website!
But if the web address begins with   https:// <https:///>, that
basically means your computer is talking to the website in a secure code that no one can eavesdrop on.

If a website ever asks you to enter your credit card information, you should automatically look to see if the web address begins with https:// <https:///>.

If it doesn't, you should NEVER enter sensitive information... such as a credit card number, SS #, etc.

“It seems to me that our three basic needs, for food and security and love, are so mixed and mingled and entwined that we cannot straightly think of one without the others. So it happens that when I write of hunger, I am really writing about love and the hunger for it, and warmth and the love of it and the hunger for it; and then the warmth and richness and fine reality of hunger satisfied; and it is all one.”

 7 recipes for snow : TreeHugger
http://www.treehugger.com/easy-vegetarian-recipes/7-recipes-snow.html

"Homemade Sriracha (Rooster Sauce)"


Ingredients:
1 3/4 pounds red jalapeno peppers, stems removed and halved
3 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1/2 cup distilled white vinegar

Method:
In food processor, combine peppers, garlic, garlic powder, granulated sugar, salt, and brown sugar. Pulse until a coarse puree forms. Transfer to a glass mason jar or other airtight glass container, seal, and store at room temperature for seven days, stirring each day.
After a week, pour the mixture into a saucepan over medium heat. Add vinegar and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for five minutes. Transfer mixture back to food processor, and puree for 2-3 minutes, until smooth and uniform. Strain mixture through a fine mesh strainer, pushing on the solids to get every last ounce of sauce out. Serve with chicken, fish, or in soup.

11 Funny Valentine's Day Jokes | Reader's Digest
http://www.rd.com/family/11-funny-valentines-day-jokes/?trkid=NL-LAUGH-120207



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)

"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
http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/prayernation.asp

'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!'
