SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'
It's been a year since I had part of my colon taken out because of a polyp. Most doctors never see that part of the colon because they don't bother to go to the very difficult to reach place.   I didn't like this doctor the first time I met him and told my family doctor that I wanted someone else.   She said, "NO, he's the best and that's who I want you to go to."  And so I did.  Three years later, he found this polyp that could only be removed via surgery.   What if I had changed doctors and it was never found?    How lucky am I?

QUOTES, LINKS & SEASONAL LINKS


Little stones make big mountains,
Little steps can cover miles,
Little acts of loving-kindness
Give the world it's biggest smiles...
Little words can soothe big troubles
Little hugs can dry big tears,
Little candles light the darkness,
Little memories last for years...

Little dreams can lead to greatness,
Little victories to success~
It's the little things in life
That brings the greatest happiness...
~ Author Unknown

I was eating dinner on the patio of a popular restaurant here in Florida on the street called Restaurant Row because there are so many restaurants.   It's an 8 lane road and very busy.  A lady with 5 children 2 tables away was so engrossed on her phone that her children were running amok through tables and customer.  Very annoying but the worst of it was worrying about would one of them jut out in the street !  Many diners Friday night dinners were ruined by this careless and inconsiderate woman. Don't be that woman !

51 Brilliant Backyard DIY Projects That Make You Go Wow

If you are determined to buy American, this will show you how. 
HOW TO READ BAR CODES (very good to know).
Look for the 0
ALWAYS READ THE LABELS ON THE FOODS YOU BUY.
NO MATTER WHAT THE FRONT OF THE BOX OR PACKAGE SAYS TURN IT OVER AND READ THE BACK---CAREFULLY!
With all the food and pet products now coming from China, it is best to make sure you read label at the grocery store and especially Walmart when buying food products.
Many products no longer show where they were made, only give where the distributor is located.
It is important to read the bar code to track it's origin.

How to read Bar Codes ....  Interesting!
This may be useful to know when grocery shopping, if it's a concern to you.
GREAT WAY TO "BUY USA & CANADA " AND NOT FROM CHINA!!
The whole world is concerned about China-made "black-hearted goods."
Can you differentiate which one is made in Taiwan or China?
If the first 3 digits of the bar code are 690, 691, or 692, the product is made in China.
If the first 3 digits are 471 the product is made in Taiwan.

It is our right to know but the Government and related departments never educate the public, therefore, we have to RESCUE ourselves.
Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products "MADE IN CHINA", so they don't show from which country it is made.
However, you may now refer to the bar code - remember if the first 3 digits are :
690, 691, 692 -- Made in China
471 -- Made in Taiwan
00 to 09 -- Made in USA & Canada
30 to 37 -- France
40 to 44 -- Germany
49 -- Japan
50 -- United Kingdom (England)
BUY MADE IN USA & CANADA by watching for 0 at the beginning of the number.

JOKES AND CARTOONS Give me a sense of humor, Lord,
Give me the grace to see a joke,

And to pass it on to other folks.
 
A large two engine train was crossing America. After they had gone some distance one of the engines broke down.
"No problem," the engineer thought, and carried on at half-power.
Further on down the line, the other engine broke down, and the train came to a standstill. The engineer decided he should inform the passengers about why the train had stopped, and made the following announcement:
"Ladies and gentlemen, I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that both engines have failed, and we will be stuck here for some time. The good news is that this is a train and not a plane."

  My six-year-old son seems to demand my attention just when I am most busy around the house. 
My standard reply has been, "I'm busy right now.  Go ask your mother."
The disappointed look often on his face as I sent him away convinced me to change my priorities.
I promised that I would give him my immediate attention whenever he asked.
My resolve was quickly tested.
I had just climbed to the top of our two-storied house, paintbrush and bucket in hand. 
As I dipped my brush into the paint I heard his little voice call, "Daddy, Daddy." 
Determined to keep my promise, I immediately laid paintbrush and bucket aside and climbed back down to the ground to see what he wanted. 
I got down on both knees, looked him straight in the little face and asked, "Well, now what can I do for you, son?"
His reply?  "Daddy, where's Mommy?"

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!'
