A tip to remember......
If you've got a messy job to do
and don't want to ruin your clothes....try this.

Take a large garbage bag and cut a hole for your arms and head and wear it as an apron. It will keep your clothes clean and you can throw it away when done.

It was in 1818 that a Swiss candy-maker started the now famous chocolate bar. His name was

Francois-Louis Cailler.  He manufactured his chocolate in blocks instead of rolls and sheets as the French and Italians did.  These blocks were broken up into bars and thus the now famous chocolate candy bar.  Go out and enjoy one!

This Day


by Gene Minix

I open the door and Wow,
I breathe in the fresh air.
The world around me so beautiful,
Sky blue and hills so fair.

What a wonderful day God has given,
This treasure that is mine.
And how I use this day
The memories will live till the end of time.

Dear God, help me to use it
In the way You'd have me to.
To enjoy in love, reaching out in love.
For this wonderful day, Lord, I thank You.

Quotes of the Day
Lose an hour in the morning, and you will be all day hunting for it.
-Whately
It is good to work eight hours and sleep 8 hours. Just make sure it's not the same eight hours.
A lot of people still have the first dollar they ever made......Uncle Sam has all the others.
______________________________
We are all Human beings.....
Very Special
We are all alike in that respect...
Yet I am different than you
and you from me in many ways.
I am an individual and you are an individual.
God made us that way.
That means we each are very, very special to the Lord!
