    Thought for the week: Ships don’t sink because of the water around them. Ships sink because of the water that gets in them. Don’t let what’s happening around you get inside you and weigh you down.

    Way to go Denver Broncos on winning the 50th Super Bowl.  We had our annual Super Bowl party with pizza, sausage balls, little franks and chips and dips. It was really just an excuse to pig out.

  • Volunteers, a poem

    Many will find and be shocked, when the day of judgment nears, that there’s a special place in Heaven,set aside for volunteers.

    Furnished with big recliners, satin couches and footstools, no library duty or bulletin assembly, nothing to print or staple, not one thing to fold and mail, telephone lists will be outlawed.

    However a finger snap will bring, cool drinks and gourmet dinners, and rare treats fit for a king.
