PRESIDENT RESCINDS DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME

i wouldn't put it past Bush to try something like that i was reading an interesting article last week NASA MUST EXPLORE FAR OUT INTO SPACE TO be sure nothing sent out will bump into something sometime in the future anyway all of a sudden their computers went tilt meaning some calculation was wrong some where seems there was a day missing no one could understand it till a christian remembered a place in the bible where the sun stood still for about a day to give the isrealites time to win the battle about a day was 23 hours 20 minutes then later god made the shadow move backward 20 degrees which is exactly 40 minutes 23 hours 20 minutes plus 40 minutes and there you have your missing day it was a lot for the scientists at Nasa to swallow but there it was a missing day this was no april fool and one more proof that the bible can be taken literly but when the deciples said what manner of man is this that even the wind and the sea obey him they weren't talking about Bush i doubt my weight will drop 5 percent even though i might wish it would

MORNING

i talked to my daughter she said our Jacob is really growing fast when my grandaughter was here she gave me a picture of her and her mom taken about three days before he was born you can look at the picture and tell exactly where he is i remember when Mary was at that stage it would seem like a knee or elbow would poke out i remember the first time i felt her move they had told me there was nothing like it and i don't think there is it felt kind of like a bunch of butterflys but i guess you all remember it it is hard to explain

LOST FUSES

thought i would tell you how i lost every fuse in the house in about one second out back we had an old chicken house with a corrugated metal roof there used to be a light over it the light was gone and just bare wires there was a switch on the porch that had been used to turn on that light when there had been a light there i had been warned never touch that switch but one time without thinking i walked past it and flipped the switch bam there went every fuse in the house washer drier and those fuses were big my husband said to me you tried to light up that corrugated tin roof and it was more than they could take now i have to change them all i said why don't you put a light back in it he said it would all have to be done over there are just wires there just stay away from that switch please well i didn't forget again one time we were to a family reunion there was a swing in the yard i went and sat down and the end of the swing fell down later i came in and went to take the top off a pan wouldn't you know it it just wasn't my day my husband and his nephew were there my husband didn't say anything to me but i heard him say to his nephew in a soft voice a crowbar in a sandpile and i don't think he meant it as a compliment oh well here at least i can't get up and make trouble

Easter Plans

no plans someone will come and preach a sermon some are better than others i was about 10 i went to an easter sunrise service with my girlfriend they paraded around the church ringing bells and swinging containers of incense she had a little book with two columns english in one column Latin in the other gave me a lifelong urge to learn latin and a few years ago i got a book i've been working in it but wish i'd had a teacher when i was younger the vocabulary isn't hard but the grammer is a little sticky but even in English gramrer wasn't my best subject

Vegetable Garden

when i was in high school we had what thy called victory gardens my mother and father my aunt and uncle had an acre they planted everything but not field corn or soy beans the first time i had a garden of my own i planted 5 pounds of peas i canned 32 pints twice then the first time i went to the store i got 32 cans needless to say i wasn't thinking later when i lived on a farm i had a big garden to take care of one time when was growing up Peoria had a hail storm the hail stones were 3 inches across and at least an inch thick it hit the whole county later when i was married my husband told me they had to replant a whole field of corn but there was a truck farmer lived on the edge of the city he had two acres of tomatoes just ready to pick i think after the storm he had catsup hail that big can do a lot of damage i think every window in the stores uptown was taken out i saw on the weather channel they had hail that big somewhere it's something you don't forget if you ever see it




Apr 10, 2001

Vegetable Garden

i really liked corn on the cob sweet corn but don't make a mistake and plant it next to a field of corn field corn plus sweet corn makes tough corn on the cob




Apr 10, 2001

Vegetable Garden

strawberries are good but murder to pick when we moved to our house in centralia a man had a plot in the back yard full of strawberries he asked if he could leave them there we said of course he said well pick what you want that's how i know they are not that easy well gradually he moved them all to where he moved but once or twice a week he would bring us a big pan of strawberries



Apr 10, 2001

Vegetable Garden

we didn't garden when i was growing up but my mother always had the yard surrounded with flowers when i moved on the farm there was an orchard with about eight apple trees at the foot of the orchard there were three cherry trees outside in the yard there was a peach tree cling stone peaches murder to peel and can one year the apple trees would produce vey heavily the next year the peach tree i was always thankful they didn't both produce heavy the same year i did like to can but enough is enough we woukld go down to a little town on the river take the ferry over to illinois there were peach orchards over there big free stone peaches if you picked them yourself you could get them for a dollar a bushel i spent many day and evenings canning them but hey were easy to peel after they were scalded




Apr 10, 2001

Vegetable Garden

Vegetable Garden~Wayne?

i remember the story about the indians teaching the pilgrims to put fish in their hills of corn i love tuna solid pack but we get tuna salad here





Apr 11, 2001

Fruit & Nut trees??

peach pear apple and cherry but you must have two pear trees for there to be any fruit and really good peach trees are grafted i learned that in an orchard in Illinois beautiful big freestone peachs the pear trees are probably the most beautiful while in bloom snowwhite though the apple trees are probably the most faithful bearers i have heard that orange blossoms are the best smelling but i don't know that personally of course



Apr 11, 2001

Fruit & Nut trees??

we have black walnut and pecan but i have never had one from them in the yard or the orchard not the right climate for coconuts in fact the first palm tree i ever saw was in my sister in laws yard in Texas




Apr 11, 2001

Fruit & Nut trees??

WHAT DO YOU...

they don't deliver here on saturday or sunday anyway but i think that is mainly because there is no one here to pass it around Mydaughter mailed me a book for my birthdaY AND I NEVER DID GET IT but when she came to see me she brought it i don't know what happened to the first copy do you think the indians got it



Apr 10, 2001

WHAT DO YOU...

if they do raise the price of postage again i doubt the mailmen wil get a raise but maybe i'm just sceptical at least it's still cheaper than U.P.S.

John Edwards=Crossing Over

can't get sci-fi wish i could but life after death is not science fiction just make sure you have the right guide when you stand before god in the judgement you will need the best defence attorney Jesus is the best and satin is a well known prosecuter he will have proof of all the reasons you should belong to him but Jesus is the only hope you have for the verdict to be not guilty
Apr 12, 2001

Scan Your Own

i think there is more to check out than just scanning they have to know how to package the things so the bread doesn't get squashed or the eggs broken maybe dry goods is easier

Rainy Easter Sunday

the farmers won't like it very wrll if it's too wet to gt into the fields when the rain is really essential is when the corn is tasselling that's what decides whither it will ave good full ears or not and knee high by the forth of July doesn't mean mucjh anymore with the new faster growing corn

Am I the only one....

i can read the posts ok if i can get them to load been having a lot of trouble geting response ran into a site awhile ago national weather warnings from Florida we do have tornados here not that often but we do have them a little too far inland though to worry about hurricanes i never knew us to have one anyway in the middle away from both oceans and too far north for the gulf and i never heard of one from the great lakes i think they need more water to build up steam or wind or whatever they do
