SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'


I love this time of year---cool weather, Super bowl, Survivor starting back up, and Chili. 
I wish the Super Bowl was back in Florida but I'll be sitting in my favorite chair enjoying it anyway with friends
 and a big pot of chili on the stove.

A little boy returned from the grocery store with his mom. While his mom put away the groceries, the little boy opened his box of animal crackers and spread them all over the kitchen table.
"What are you doing?" asked his mom.
"The box says you shouldn't eat them if the seal is broken," said the little boy. "I'm looking for the seal."

http://thenostalgiamachine.com/years/1960.html
Top Ten 45-rpm record for every month for 39 years, you can actually click on and play the song! Not only that, after you click on a year and select a song to play if you right click on each song, you can save it to your computer as an .mp3! 
www.45rpmdb.com/Top10HTML%5C1972.08.html

The song you are about to hear is from a Las Vegas Diamond Rio concert.  They received an immediate resounding standing ovation and continue to do so every time they perform it.  Sadly, major radio stations wouldn’t play it because it is considered “politically incorrect”.  Consequently, the song was not released to the public.  We can all take care of that by sending it on.  Although it is written for the United States it also applies to Canada and all other free countries.  Every  person in the USA and the free world needs to hear this song, so please keep it going.

Do You Know What A Yellow Ribbon Tied On A Dog’s Collar Means?
You are out in the park with your family, playing, running, maybe even having a picnic.  Perhaps your dog is with you; however, off in the distance you see adorable dog approaching with their handler and your children immediately begin to run towards this adorable dog.  As the dog is getting closer, you see a yellow ribbon tied on the dog’s collar.  What goes through your mind?
A yellow ribbon around a dog’s collar is to help children identify that you need to proceed with caution. The dog may not be child friendly, may have fear or anxiety issues, or may be overly excited.  Either way, caution should be applied when approaching.
The Yellow Dog Project is a nonprofit organization that is a global effort to help raise awareness and education around dogs that require a little extra distance upon approaching.  Does this mean that the dog is aggressive or mean?  No, there are numerous reasons why a dog may have a yellow ribbon. It may mean the dog is new with the handler, is under medical care, or in foster care for instance.
The purpose of this project is to assist with the proper techniques to approach a dog. Children have a lot of energy and often to run up and pet a dog. Not all dogs understand this and can become fearful.  With proper education, all parties are put in a less stressful environment, which in turn reduces opportunities for an unforeseen accident.

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.






A football coach walked into the changing room before a game.  He looked over to his new signing and said, 'I'm not supposed to let you play since you failed arithmetic, but we need you to be in the team.  So, what I have to do is ask you a math question, and if you get it right then you will be allowed to play.' The player agreed, so coach looked into his eyes intently and asked, 'Okay, now concentrate hard and tell me the answer to this.  What is two plus two?' The player thought for a moment and then answered, '4?' 'Did you say 4?' the coach exclaimed, excited that he had got it correct.

Suddenly all the other players on the team began shouting..., 'Come on coach, give him another chance!'

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!'
