OUR ESTER
on the first easter day day Christ arose on the final easter day he will return he had said until he does there will be wars wars and rumors of war and of the final trials unless those days be shortened not even the elect will be saved but those days will be shortened and those who stay faithful will also reign with him he doesn't want us to be discouraged just to know that sometime the suffering will be over because he was able to say it is over someday the world will be able to say so satan will try with his lies to get us to believe differently but we can know those are lies and believe on when christ said he could not tell his followers when he said that only the father knows yet there are those who try to manipulate the bible and say this is when or that is when exalting their wisdom above that of their saviour please excuse the sermon i don't usually preach but may we all pray that those days will be shortened and that he will come soon

Re: Her suffering is over
that is the way i felt when i lost Vickie and why i said no when the dr suggested puting in a shunt he was honest enough to say it would only prolong her suffering a few more weeks and young as she was she knew she would be with jesus even though she said she would be sorry to leave me


Sun, Mar 31, 2002
Re: Her suffering is over
i know my Vickie went from suffering to joy even if my roommate tells me i am not very intelligent to believe that i do believe and i am thankful i do

something realTTT
the cartoon of the easter bunny reminds me strongly of a program i saw last week on Animal planet i am 76 and a nurse but it was something i had never seen a live photo of a cat having kittens there was the mother cat lying belly up and all of a sudden a kittens head then a kitten she had about five in a row the kitten would come then the placenta they would take the kitten suction its mouth and dry it it was quite something to see and the way those kittens appeared was a little like the way those eggs were appearing i wonder if baby rabbits are born in much the same way


Sun, Mar 31, 2002
something realTTT
i think it was at the vets but i think they had the cat positioned for the camera anyway it was a strange sight and those little heads poped out about like the eggs did in that cartoon


Sun, Mar 31, 2002
something realTTT
it talked about the litter afterwards and i think they said one kitten didn't make it have been there when my husband and father in law casterated the little pigs always as soon after they were born as the sign was past Scorpio 300 pigs a year and never an infection as soon as the casteration was done they would hand them over the fence to me i had a pair of clippers and i had to clip their tusk teeth i know it didn't hurt them but i still felt a little squemish i had to dispose of the tiny testicals they couldn't be wasted so i used to cream them with bulb onions


Sun, Mar 31, 2002
something realTTT
the men would keep a few of those baby pigs and let them grow into boars the rest were barrows of all the hogs my father in law raised he would never let the herd get too pure if they were all durocks he would breed in spotted poland china he just never let the herd get too pure and he raised 300 a year but he had a cement feeding floor when we Moved to missouri my husband didn't raise hogs he said the ground was too soft to run the spreader so down here we had mostly a grain farm one cow that it fell to my daughter and i to milk when he went to columbia to work neither of us knew how to milk but we were milking one day and it sounded like she had a good rhythm going i said Mary it sounds like you are doing ok. she said yes mom but i don't think you're supposed to use both hands on the same faucet in Illinois we had 20 head but they used milking machines i learned how to get eggs away from a broody hen but not how to milk


Sun, Mar 31, 2002
something realTTT
if she had been hanging by her front feet like the bunny in the cartoon i think it would have looked much the same but i think whoever was taking the pictures was holding her in the position she was in for the sake of the camera i did see hye picture of a birth one time in nursing school usually the sight of blood doesn't bother me but in this case for the benefit of the nurses on line it was a placenta previa and the blood in the picture did almost get the better of me other than that for some reason i will faint if i cut my finger one time i was making ham sandwiches for my husband to take to the field i did what they warn you not to do i cut toward myself and almost cut my thumb off he was sleeping in the living room on the opened up sofa i went in and sat down and promptly passed out my hand hanging off the foot of the bed when he brought me to he said i had to clean the blood off the floor first but i was ok he took me to the dr. and the dr put a staple in it

HOW SMART ARE YOU
my roommate got into a discussion at the dinner table i said i believed the bible literally she said she didn't it was just stories i said maybe it depended on whether or not you were raised to have faith she said she went to church and all but she was too intelligent to believe in things like the resurection or that Jesus was god or things like that she must believe i am a really stupid person i told her the intelligence of man was foolishness to god but of course she didn't even realise what i said

Re: MILITARY MATH
my husband fought in Korea someytimes he talked about the things they did one of the things he mentioned was shooting a back azimuth with a compass one of the groups i go to is a camping group i asked if anyone there knew what he was talking about they said it was finding a distance by measuring angles and doing a lot of complicated figuring including finding tangent which sounds a lot like Trig something i know nothing about maybe if i had been a boy my lack of knowledge of math would have made me 4-F

what would ave happened
in the bible it said god said to eve because of her disobedience she would bear children in great pain if that had not happened i wonder how it would have been would woman be a marsupoal have the young born very small and climb to a pouch or could she have just laid an egg and have the baby develop that way it may be irreverent but i just wonder

Re: "Kitchen Tips" 4/1
when i lived in Illinous which i did from 1926 till 1958 when we moved to Missouri we got a lot of cooking tips one was take bisquick make a sticky dough put chicken broth bring it to a boil drop in spoonfuls of the dough cover and let cook about twenty minutes makes good dumplings if you want them flavored use juice rather than the chicken broth another tip powdered sugar icing mix the butter and powdered sugar like you do for regular icing before you add the liquid stir in a package of jello the icing will be the color and flavor of the jello we used to have halloween parties my mother would make cup cakes half with chocolate icing half with orange someone said they were going to use strawberry and lime for christmas i'm not sure if they have blueberry jello but if they do you could make red white and blue for the fourth of July another thing i used to do was put soy sauce on hamburgers when i was frying them cooking was one of my hobbies and i miss doing it though spending all of my time in a wheelchair i want a good breakfast and after that i'm not hungry but they say i have to at least try to eat

Re: Roll Call~ April 1 ~ NJ
one of the girls here asked me one day what would you do if all of a sudden you were normal able to walk and use both hands . i said the first thing i would do is go straight to the office here and put in an application but then i couldn't live here i would have my social security to live on and what they say apartments cost now i don't know but i would get a paycheck if such a miracle were to happen i might go right back to mental health in Columbia i retired in 88 and worked p.r.n. for three years till i had the stroke in 91 made more at p.r.n. than i did at my regular full time job then i could get my hobbies crochet and counted cross stich back or i might go to indianapolis to be near my daughter grandaughter and great grandson but the chances of that happening are about like the chances if my winning that nine million lottery in either case i won't hold my breath

Thu, Apr 4, 2002
Re: Where is Everybody ????
i can't use the excuse of being too busy but there are things i'm expected to do like be at the dining room on time for meal they just hate it when you are late or don't come then someone has to bring it to you whether you want anything or not this is supposed to be your home but at home if we weren't hungry for supper till ten p.m. thats when we ate it sometimes i would put a roll of biscuits in the oven and bake them or make grilled cheese sandwiches they brought us meals on wheels but you didn't have to eat them till you wanted to a good nursing home is a blessing sometimes a left handed blessing

WHAT WAS JUDSAES MOTIVRE
i have heard a lot of opinions over the past couple of weeks over what could have been the motive of Judas in betraying christ Ithink he might have been thinking by doing so he would force christ too show his full divinity to squelch the Romans then and there but that was not gods way or plan and in any hard thing that may come our way he will correct it in his own way and time we have no right to try and hurry him

Re: Uses for Coffee Filters
i never had coffee filters because when i was home i never used anything but instant coffee i didn't drink it and my husband didn't care as long as soon as i got up i heated some water and made him a cup a lot of people here take coffee for breakfast but many of them want ice tea and a few like hot tea i take hot chocolate myself and look forward to breakfast i love my eggs and oatmeal i can get eggs for dinner or supper if i ask but they only make oatmeal for breakfast they make a gallon of it at a time and can only do that once a day i think i will get myself some of the little packets then if i want it i can have it i used them at home a lot

Re: Please Read This
i have heated the water in a microwave many times heated it not boiled it i have heated water in a small bowl to drop an egg in to poach it i would usually put the timer on 20 seconds plenty to poach the egg though i did have the water boilng if i used a pan on the stove then gave the egg two and a half minutes by my watch i have always been very particular about my eggs another thing i used to do was put water in a small bowl then a packet of instant oatmeal that usually took 60 seconds

Re: "TIME"
i always read the cartoon the family circus the little boy Jeffy was saying is that a minute or a just a minute and there is a difference not only for children here we go to a meal at the time appointed 7 a.m. for breakfast that does not mean your tray will be there at 7 the kitchen has to set them up and put them on the rack then the aids have to deliver them they can't put them on the racks too soon because everything is supposed to be hot at times it reminds me of a saying my husband used to say about the army he said the motto was hurry up and wait sometimes my next door neighbor will stop to wheel me she will say were late i will say don't worry we wil beat the food and we always do

Re: All about how Mt. Rushmore was sculpted
a friend and i took a camping trip through South Dakota we saw many wonderful things including mount Rushmore it is truly a wonderful site there is a pavilion where you can see it it is lighted at night while in South Dakota we stayed one night at the Red Cloud Indian school it is quite an impressive school from primary through 12 there was one room in the primary section labeled Lakota where the children start who at first know only their native tongue Lakota there is a cemetary where there is the grave of Chief Red Cloud an indian chief who thought the children should learn all they could to live and get along in the white mans world there was a hall where there was all kinds of art work from native american tribes a nice church the school is run by monks besides giving us rooms for the night we got breakfast the next morning and attended church service Mass on the way out i forget the town we saw the corn palace a building that is decorated entirely of corn in different colors we saw the wounded knee memorial and site quite an informative trip and it was worth every minute

Re: TONIGHT...
i got to tour Washington D.C. on my honeymoon in 1949 we had gone to the east coast from our home in Illinois husband told me we could tour either new York city or Washington d.c. but we could not afford to do both i chose Washington we stayed in a hotel that night and the next day took a limousine tour of the city we saw the library of congress where all the documents the declaration of independence etc are kept we saw the mint and saw them printing money we saw the white house but didn't get to tour it we went to mount Vernon and toured it we saw the Lincoln memorial the washington monument the capital building and to me the most impressive the changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknown soldier we didn't see the Smithsonian it probably couldn't have been done in one day with all the other things we saw coming back from mount Vvernon we came back down the Patomic river on a boat it was a never to be forgoten experience i would have liked to have toured New York York but you can't have everything and i was satisfied so was my husband
