IT'S CALLED OLD AGE

I saw this the other day and though oh my, it sounds just like me.  The ole bones, crack, snap and pop for sure.  I hope your day is going good and you have a big smile on your face and that you will do something good for someone today.  That always makes my day.  If only the world could be nothing but a happy place wouldn't that be great?  No sadness or heartaches is what I wish for you for your Holiday Season.

LET THE HOLIDAY SEASON BEGIN

What a beautiful home with all the snow and Christmas decorations.  Can I say maybe a nice dream home.  Nice but I am thankfull for just what I have.  A house is only a house but I have a Home, not the size or color just home.  Alot of love inside for sure.
I love the Christmas Season but not some of the people that go along with it as they do not seems to realize the reason fior the season.  I hope you have a Blessed one and take time to relax and enjoy your time with friend and family.

HI LORD, ITS ME

Hi Lord, it’s me. We are getting older and things are getting bad here.

Gas prices are too high, no jobs, food and heating costs too high.

I know some have taken you out of our schools, government, veteran's funerals, and even Christmas.

But Lord I'm asking you to come back and re-bless America .

We really need you! There are more of us who want you than those who don't!

Thank You Lord, I Love you.
 
THIS WAS SENT TO ME BY MY VERY SPECIAL FRIEND, HOWARD.  MADE ME STOP AND THINK TODAY AS I HOPE IT WILL DO THE SAME FOR YOU.

TWAS THE MONTH BEFORE CHRISTMAS

Twas the month before Christmas

When all through our land,

Not a Christian was praying

Nor taking a stand.

Why the PC Police had taken away

The reason for Christmas - no one could say.

The children were told by their schools not to sing

About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.

It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say

December 25th is just a ' Holiday '.

Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit

Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!

CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-Pod

Something was changing, something quite odd!

Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa

In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.

As Targets were hanging their trees upside down

At Lowe's the word Christmas - was no where to be found.

At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears

You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.

Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-is-ty

Are words that were used to intimidate me.

Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen

On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton !

At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter

To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.

And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith

Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace

The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded

The reason for the season, stopped before it started.

So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'

Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.

Choose your words carefully, choose what you say

Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS,

not Happy Holiday !

Please, all Christians join together and

wish everyone you meet

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Christ is The Reason for the Christ-mas Season!
 
 
this was sent to me and I wanted to share this with you.  If only we could go back to the good ole days as they say, we would not even be seeing such stuff or hearing many comments on the subject.

WHO KNEW

Did you know that drinking two glasses of Gatorade can relieve headache pain almost immediately-without the unpleasant side effects caused by traditional pain relievers?

Did you know that Colgate Toothpaste makes an excellent salve for burns?

Before you head to the drugstore for a high-priced inhaler filled with mysterious chemicals, try chewing on a couple of curiously strong Altoids peppermints. They'll clear up your stuffed nose..


Achy muscles from a bout of the flu? Mix 1 tablespoon horseradish in 1 cup of olive oil. Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes, then apply it as a massage oil for instant relief for aching muscles.

Sore throat? Just mix 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1/4 cup of honey and take 1 tablespoon six times a day The vinegar kills the bacteria.

Cure urinary tract infections with Alka-Seltzer. Just dissolve two tablets in a glass of water and drink it at the onset of the symptoms. Alka-Seltzer begins eliminating urinary tract infections almost instantly-even though the product was never advertised for this use.

Honey remedy for skin blemishes...... Cover the blemish with a dab of honey and place a Band-Aid over it. Honey kills the bacteria, keeps the skin sterile, a nd speeds healing. Works overnight.

Listerine therapy for toenail fungus: Get rid of unsightly toenail fungus by soaking your toes in Listerine Mouthwash. The powerful antiseptic leaves your toenails looking healthy again.

Easy eyeglass protection... To prevent the screws in eyeglasses from loosening, apply a small drop of Maybelline Crystal Clear Nail Polish to the threads of the screws before tightening them.

Cleaning liquid that doubles as bug killer... If menacing bees, wasps, hornets, or yellow jackets get in your home and you can't find the insecticide, try a spray of Formula 409.. Insects drop to the ground instantly.

Smart splinter remover: Just pour a drop of Elmer's Glue-All over the splinter, let dry, and peel the dried glue off the skin. The splinter sticks to the dried glue.

Hunt's Tomato Paste boil cure.. Cover the boil with Hunt's Tomato Paste as a compress. The acids from the tomatoes soothe the pain and bring the boil to a head.

Balm for broken blisters... To disinfect a broken blister, dab on a few drops of Listerine, a powerful antiseptic..

Vinegar to heal bruises... Soak a cotton ball in white vinegar and apply it to the bruise for 1 hour. The vinegar reduces the blueness and speeds up the healing process..

Quaker Oats for fast pain relief.... it's not for breakfast anymore! Mix 2 cups of Quaker Oats and 1 cup of water in a bowl and warm in the microwave for 1 minute, cool slightly, and apply the mixture to your hands for soothing relief from arthritis pain.

WHAT A WONDERFUL DAY

Hello and how is your day today?  Grab yourself a cup of coffee or tea and lets chat for awhile.  I cleaned some this morning, did a little crocheting and visited with my daughter.  Have you ever wanted to be a magic healer and heal everyone who is hurting and sad?  I do wish I had that talent but I don't so I just say "Lord, I put this in your hands".  Ok, enough of that, this is to be a happy chat,  Thanksgiving being next week I need to get to the store and get the items I need.  I always looked so forward to that special day, the kids all came for dinner and we had our Family time.  Now, they are her, there and everywhere and have their own Families so the hubby and I just do our own thing.  By the way, did I tell you he is away on a hunting trip?  Yep, So what did I do with all my spare time?
I wish that your afternoon be a relaxing one, Stop be and chat any time you feel the need.

CHRISTMAS IS IN THE AIR


Is that not a beautiful picture?  My dream place.  Two-story house and white snow all around.  Being from the good ole South make a no snow place at Christmas.  I make the Holiday Season all 3 in one so it will be a longer fun time.
I wish you all peace, warmth and joy for the Holiday Season.

HOWDY-DO FROM FLORIDA

Here it is another day and of course I want to wish you a teriffic one.  Rather chilly here this morning in sunny Florida.  The sun is beginning to appear and the birds are now singing.  What a nice day.  The hubby will leave in the early morning for his 2 week hunting trip.  Now what will I do with a hubby break that long?  I"ll never tell.  Lol

Today I will bake him some pumpkin spice cookies,  a loaf of Banana nut bread and a Pumpkin cake.  Goodness, he will eat better than me.

You have a wonderful day, I leave you with this

It only takes one smile to offer welcome...
and blessed be the person who will share it.
It only takes one moment to be helpful...
and blessed be the person who will spare it.
It only takes one joy to lift a spirit...
and blessed be the person who will give it.
It only takes one life to make a difference...
and blessed be the person who will live it.
Celebrate the happiness that friends are always giving...
make every day a holiday and celebrate just living.
-Amanda Bradley

NIP THAT COLD

Honey and Cinnamon Cold Remedy:

Mix. Take this amount every few hours as soon as you feel a cold or other illness coming on. After initially trying it with only one ‘dose’ and seeing the immediate effects, I now mix up a small bowl full of honey and cinnamon and spoon it into hot drinks or dip fruit into it all day long. I find that with young children it’s easy to just treat the whole family with this simple yummy remedy upon the first sign of a sniffle from anyone

I saw this and thought I would share with you.  The older days when they had no Doctors people would make up things to help them.    Natural is way better than PILLS any day.
You have a great day today.  Stay warm and remember those suffering from the storm Sandy and say a special prayer for them.

MICKEY HE'S THE GUY

Ok,  he is so ready to roll.  Everyday he has to go for a ride around the neighborhood.  We open the door and away he flies and jumps in the golf cart.  He will stay right there until you take him even iff it is  only around the house.  He is so funny and such a great lil guy.

Today, everyone, take a few minutes to remember all the people who was affected by the terrible storm.  God Bless each and every one of you and yours.
