An older, tired-looking dog wandered into my yard; I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home and was well taken care of.

He calmly came over to me, I gave him a few pats on his head; he then followed me into my house, slowly walked down the hall, curled up in the corner and fell asleep.

An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out.

The next day he was back, greeted me in my yard, walked inside and resumed his spot in the hall and again slept for about an hour. This continued off and on for several weeks.

Curious I pinned a note to his collar: ‘I would like to find out who the owner of this wonderful sweet dog is and ask if you are aware that almost every afternoon your dog comes to my house for a nap.’

The next day he arrived for his nap, with a different note pinned to his collar: ‘He lives in a home with 6 children, 2 under the age of 3 - he’s trying to catch up on his sleep. Can I come with him tomorrow?’

Gotta tell y'all a true story. Four or five years ago, for reasons I cannot even recall at this moment, I violated one of my own personal living concepts which I taught my kids with some regularity and that was to never have "contempt before investigation", i.e., deciding that you didn't like the taste of a certain food, before you had ever even tried tasting it first, or, deciding you didn't want to see a certain movie because the title didn't sound like something you would enjoy. In other words, pre-judging a book by its cover.

For many years, I thought Newt Gingrich was a "goof" and had no idea what he was talking about. In truth, I erroneously based my opinion on what I had heard others say about him, a BIG mistake in any situation. Then, through happenstance, I began seeing, and most importantly, listening to what the man had to say regarding various domestic and world issues, and slowly, I began to change my erred opinion regarding him and had to admit that my opinion was seriously flawed.

If you would, watch this short 3 minute video regarding our current oil and energy fiasco and see what you you think.....

I like his idea's and what he's got to say....

And if'n ya would, check out this organization and sign it's petition that is sweeping the internet like wildfire.....I did.

Notice on car. ( This is No Joke folks...please read)


On Friday night they parked in a public parking area. As they drove away he noticed a sticker on the rear window of the car. When he took it off after they got home, it was a receipt for gas. Luckily his friend had told him not to stop as it could be someone waiting for them to get out of the car. Then this email was received:


Heads up everyone! .. Husbands, wives, kids, everyone!!! Please, keep this circulating or post it on yur blogs...

You walk across the parking lot, unlock your car and get inside. You start the engine and shift into Reverse. When you look into the rearview mirror to back out of your parking space, you notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear window. So, you shift into Park, unlock your doors, and jump out of your car to remove that paper (or whatever it is) that is obstructing your view. When you reach the back of your car, that is when the carjackers appear out of nowhere, jump into your car and take off. They practically mow you down as they speed off in your car.

And guess what, ladies? I bet your purse is still in the car. So now the carjacker has your car, your home address, your money, and your keys. Your home and your whole identity are now compromised!


If you see a piece of paper stuck to your back window, just drive away. Remove the paper later. And be thankful that you read this e-mail I hope you will forward this to friends and family, especially to women A purse contains all kinds of personal information and identification documents, and you certainly do NOT want this to fall into the wrong hands.
