SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'
I don't know about you but to make it through the summer, I rely on lettuce, watermelon and popsicles. I am an avid gardener so when I come in from the heat, I get a big bowl of icy cold watermelon. Or, I just might might have a pickle juice popsicle. I float like a butterfly all summer long....smile.

This is heart breaking for me. I went to the very first Wal-Mart with my parents and families trusted them thanks to John Walton, founder. He would be out in the store asking people if they were happy. He was very personable and sweet. He is probably rolling over in his grave now.
According to the FTC, products that are promoted as U.S.-made must meet the "all or virtually all" standards.

Protect yourselves from RFID scanners on the cheap
Take your favorite wallet, and cut a piece of cardboard (thin but firm) to fit into the back compartment of your wallet, usually reserved for bills, and then layout a square foot of aluminum foil, Double it over and wrap it around the cardboard, and tape it solidly in place  Fit it into the compartment, and make sure the corners are wedged all the way down into the corners of the fold. 

Keep your credit cards in one of the inner pockets. Keep bills where the RFID scanners cannot read the blue strip.

JOKES AND CARTOONS
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.
 
Someone asked an old man : “Even after 70 years, you still call your wife – Darling, Honey, Luv. What’s the secret ?
Old man : I forgot her name and I’m scared to ask her.

 I was testing children in my  Sunday school class to see if they understood the concept of getting to heaven.
'I asked them, ' If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage sale and gave all my money to the church, would that get me into heaven?' 'NO!' the children answered.
'If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the garden, and kept everything tidy, would that get me into heaven?' Again, the answer was 'NO!' 'If I gave sweets to all the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into heaven?' Again, they all answered 'NO!' I was just bursting with pride for them.  I continued, 'Then how can I get into heaven?'
A little boy shouted out: 'YUV GOTTA BE DEAD.' Brings a tear to the eye, doesn't it?
  

 
 
  A bookseller conducting a market survey asked a woman – “Which book has helped you most in your life?”
The woman replied – “My husband’s cheque book !!”

A prospective husband in a book store “Do you have a book called, ‘Husband – the Master of the House’?
Sales Girl : “Sir, Fiction and Comics are on the 1st floor.”

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!'
