SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN' 

When I was a kid back in Little Rock, I had to walk 6 blocks to the elementary school -- I said 6 BLOCKS NOT MILES.  I never felt deprived because I wasn't being taken to school.  It just never occurred to me even if there was 6 inches of snow on the ground or it was pouring cats and dogs.   The best thing about walking home to school was my Mom opening the door, helping me with my coat, and taking me to the kitchen where she had a homemade pot of soup on the stove.  

"Winter is the time for comfort - it is the time for home."
- Edith Sitwell

Of interest if you have a Volkswagen
Volkswagen faces up. Criminal prosecutors in the United States have charged six executives at Volkswagen in connection with the company’s emissions-cheating scandal.  They are alleged to have directed employees to develop and install technologies to evade emissions testing, then falsely market the car engines as “clean diesel”.  Five of the executives are thought to be in Germany, so it is unclear how legal proceedings will move forward. The sixth was arrested at an airport in Miami.  Volkswagen has agreed to plead guilty to three criminal counts and pay US$4.3 billion in a US settlement.

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 HLR13@aol.com.  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.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.
Harriet

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.
Thought for Today

It is extremely embarrassing to come to your senses and find that you have none.



My husband and I purchased a large, old home in upstate New York from two elderly sisters.    The house was very cold as we discovered on our very first night when we woke up to find frost on the inside walls.  I suggested we add insulation but my husband said, " if they could live here all those years, so can we!"     As the temperatures went lower and lower, my husband decided to call the sisters and ask them how they had kept the house warm.   After a brief conversation, he hung up and said, "for the last 30 years they've spent the winters in Florida."

You know you've done it

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!'
