I heard on the news that actor Jamie Foxx helped rescue a person from a burning automobile. Jamie Foxx is Eric Bishop from our town , Terrell . His Grandmother was a good customer of ours. My nephew was in the HS stage band with him. He was also a very good QB on the football team.  Our concert auditorium was completely packed the night he won the Academy Award for his portrayal of Ray Charles. There was a special fund he set up for his Grandmother's care & she was well cared for until she died. He & I had a mutual friend that died two years ago & he did the eulogy.

Wise Advice from a Farmer's Wife

Whenever you return a borrowed pie pan, make sure it's got a warm pie in it.
 Invite lots of folks to supper. You can always add more water to the soup.
 There's no such thing as woman's work on a farm. There's just work.
 Make home a happy place for the children. Everybody returns to their happy place.
 Always keep a small light on in the kitchen window at night.
 If your man gets his truck stuck in the field, don't go in after him.
Throw him a rope and pull him out with the tractor.
 Keep the kerosene lamp away from the the milk cow's leg.
 It's a whole lot easier to get breakfast from a chicken than a pig.
 Always pat the chickens when you take their eggs.
 It's easy to clean an empty house, but hard to live in one.
 All children spill milk. Learn to smile and wipe it up.
 Homemade's always better'n store bought.
 A tongue's like a knife. The sharper it is the deeper it cuts.
 A good neighbor always knows when to visit and when to leave.
 A city dog wants to run out the door, but a country dog stays on the porch 'cause he's not fenced-in.
 Always light birthday candles from the middle outward.
 Nothin' gets the frustrations out better'n splittn' wood.
 The longer dress hem, the more trusting the husband.
 Enjoy doing your children's laundry. Some day they'll be gone.
 You'll never catch a runnin' chicken but if you throw seed around the back door you'll have a skillet full by supper.
 Biscuits brown better with a little butter brushed on 'em.
 Check your shoelaces before runnin' to help somebody.
 Visit old people who can't get out. Some day you'll be one.
 The softer you talk, the closer folks'll listen.
 The colder the outhouse, the warmer the bed.

I enjoy good quotes, those are all good. I need to know how to get a song outa my head. I am still in the learning curve of folding clothes and ever time I look at a basket full I start hearing    Kenny Roger's singing the Gambler's song "You Gotta Know How To Fold Em etc." then know when  run.

I saw this on the evening news & thought interesting. These waterfalls were stopped by 90mph winds. This is in Scotland. I took these pictures off the TV

Do you have a flashlight on your cell phone?.

This is very interesting and scary.

I have known some people that did very little or no work at their jobs.

Have you ever known some one that could get away with out doing any work?

This guy might have them all beat.

There should be a supervisor in the mix also held accountable.
