Obituary of the late Mr. Common Sense
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6 -year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer Calpol, sun lotion or a band-aid to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 3 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim.

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.

My weekend...........
Wow, was it ever packed! But good. Saturday morning started with a little shopping trip to Tuesday morning to browse ideas for the house - found some really nice lampshades & some cool shades for Savannah! Then came home & had plans to get the back porch organized, and therefore would get some boxes out of the dining room we are still stepping around. Florabeth was going to cut the yard and here we go. The back porch was put on the shelf & I got busy out in the shed instead and we (me, flo, jay, and linny) cleaned it out & the yard and made some junk collectors very happy! :)
In the meantime, my brother, John (Ryan's Mimi) and a friend, Darren and Jay came over and took the garage door down & proceeded to put in a wall and a door for a scrapbook/computer/craft/family room for us! YAY, the worked SO HARD and it turned out beautiful. God gave them a gorgeous day to do it in as well. THANK YOU GUYS - IT LOOKS GREAT. Being the scrapbooker that I am, I nearly always take pictures of events as this & it had actually crossed my mind to do so, then I got sidetracked and the thought went away, sorry guys, but I still want to give you credit - did you know that you can actually do a scrapbook page WITHOUT PICTURES? UH HUH, you can. And I will! Just give me time...........I'm glad that we are blessed by their willingness to help us. Although their family is very busy, they are always there when the need arises and it is appreciated very much.
Then after all this was done, Faith & David came in & invited us out to eat with them.........we ended up at OBryan's in Madison for some good food & fellowship.
Sunday morning, we got up (very slowly & carefully) we were sore from head to toe & even discovered some muscles we had forgotten we had! Went to church and had good services and then the girls and I along with Savannah went to meet Tausha & Emma to see Caleb! Had a good time with them. Came home & took a nap & went back to church and enjoyed testimonies/praise/song service. God gives to us just exactly what we need when we need it doesn't he? We came away from church with our spirits very much refreshed and ready to face another week living for Him. We ended up meeting some of the MC peoples at Danoto's and again enjoyed good fellowship!
So, now I'm back at work & looking forward to some great services in MC this week - they are having a (how do I say this?) revival on the fly (spontaneous, not planned) maybe? Anyways, church is always good & I'm looking forward to it.

Happy Spring!!
Some Telephone History

After having dug to a depth of 1000 meters last year,Massachusetts scientists found traces of copper wire dating back1000 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestorsalready had a telephone network more than 1000 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the Massachusetts Pilgrims, in the weeks thatfollowed, Michigan scientist dug to a depth of 2000 meters and shortlythere after headlines in the Kalamazoo newspapers read:"Michigan archaeologists have found traces of 2000 year copperwire and have concluded that their ancestors already had anadvanced high-tech communications network a thousand yearsearlier than the Massachusetts Pilgrims."

One week later, The Huntsville, Alabama Observer reported the following:"After digging as deep as 5000 meters in NorthernAlabama, scientists have found absolutely nothing. They havetherefore concluded that 5000 years ago Northern Alabama inhabitantswere already using wireless technology."

Something relaxing

A New Song introduced me to this CD & I really enjoy it. I don't normally take to a whole CD, but his one is different. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

We are having a revival this week! Starting Friday, March 9 - Thursday, March15 with Bro Paster Dan Kasper. Am looking forward to it & if you are reading this, consider this your invite!

Nothing earthshattering going on in my life at the present. Still saved, sancitified, and unified with God's body, just living one day at a time! Praise God!

Looking forward to spring getting here - so beautiful outside and here I am stuck in an office! There oughta be a LAW against that! :)

Tonight I want to head out to my sister's house and take my laptop & download some games on it! Tuesday night Keith came over to get my wireless router hooked up & did a great job! Thanks Keith. Bran & Becca came down as well so Bran could watch & learn! So, if your needing help in that area - give them a call!

Well, enough of my ramblings I reckon......till the next urge hits me!
See you later.
