It's the season of love for the gators here in Florida.   Usually they are pretty smart but they go crazy in mating season and get themselves in big trouble.   Common sense is thrown out the window looking for a mate, they might decide to look for one in your personal pool.   Personally, I don't like to swim with gators.
A friend of mine found one in her tiny Koi pond !   People who move here should do some research on gators.   They get here and put up a chained link fence thinking that will keep them out.   THINK AGAIN.

In this election year this makes a lot of sense.
When the white man discovered this country, Indians were running it.  No taxes, no debt, women did all the work.  White man thought he could improve on a system like this. --Cherokee

We see lots of pictures of wounded male veterans but women vets get wounded and maimed too.
You may need to take a second, closer look though.
The first thing I saw was a bunch of beautiful smiles.

Study this picture again. Let the story it tells sink in.
These women and many others, as well as their male comrades, paid this price for our freedoms.

They risked these injuries or death for America.


Can you help Harriet help others?
I make afghans for charities  (Aids Hospices, Make a Wish Foundation, Palm Beach Sheriffs Office for their Kids in Distress, Alliance Church, who send the afgans to orphanages, United Order True Sisters who bring the afgans to children in the hospital, Chrisie Everett Rehab Center at Broward General Hospital, Ronald McDonald House, and The V.A.,  in Vierra.
If anyone out there has any yarn they would like to donate, please e mail me at  Will give you all the info .  I know postage is expensive, so a Michaels or Wal Mart gift card would be wonderful also.
Have made over 4,000 afgans in the last  15 years.  I really need some help from you guys.  Cannot take a check or cash.  That can cause many problems for me.  Any yarn donation would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks to all.

How To Smoke and Dry Tomaotes
Have you tried smoked tomatoes?  They are delicious and expensive if you buy them.  You can powder the dried smoked tomatoes to make spice blends similar to Mrs. Dash.

"You can use smoke-dried tomatoes as you would sun-dried tomatoes. Add them to pizza, pasta, casseroles, stews, sauces, soups, salads, dips, stuffing, antipastos, scrambled eggs, cornbread... the possibilities are endless!

Smoke-dried tomatoes can be packed into sterilized glass jars with or without sprigs of fresh herbs, covered with extra-virgin olive oil, and stored in the refrigerator. The olive oil becomes infused with the smoky tomato flavor and is just delicious."
This site will tell you how to do it.  Easy.  Yummy.

It's been a long year for teachers

A cop pulls a guy over for weaving across two lanes of traffic.
He walks up to the driver’s window and asks, "You drinkin'?"
The driver said, “Well that depends - You buyin’?" 

We've figured out the problem with taxes

A middle-aged frumpy couple return to a Mercedes dealership where the salesman has just sold the car they were interested in to a beautiful, leggy, busty Red Head.
"I thought you said you would hold that car till we raised the $155,000 asking price.”  said the man. "Yet I just heard you close the deal for $130,000 to the lovely young lady there.  You insisted there could be no discount on this model."
"Well, what can I tell you? She had the ready cash and, just look at her, how could I resist?" replied the grinning salesman.
Just then the young woman approached the senior couple and gave them the keys.
"There you go, Grandpa" she said. "I told you I would get the dope to reduce it. See you later, dad."

My wife's riding Lawn Mower is now for Sale
Here's the story.  It's still hard to believe the way it turned out.
My wife said she wanted a riding lawn mower.  She works all day and was always tired when she came home from work.  I thought that a riding lawn mower would help her get the yard work done quicker so she would have more time for the chores inside.  So, being the handy sort of guy that I am, I made her a riding lawn mower.    
I even put a light on it so she could work at night, after she finishes putting away the dinner dishes.
I thought she would squeal with delight or something and give me a big hug.                 
To this day I still can't understand why some women are so hard to please!!

    P.S.  I can see out of my left eye pretty good now and should be able to leave the hospital sometime next week!

How Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord Ps33:12

Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America”

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."- Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan Tribute -- Bel Air Presbyterian Church - YouTube

All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer.  It isn't.
Billy Graham's Prayer for Our Nation

'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!'
