A friend of mine said I could use anything on his blog, so I 

picked and chose a few good ones I'd like to 

share with you.  Check these out.  They are really very special! 


The Blogger's Prayer

Lord help me to learn to spell without spellcheck, manage to visit all that visit me, and post regularly - all in 5 minutes a day, so that I can clean house and take care of my family. Help me to not look at every occurrence in my life as a blog post, and to quit taking pictures of weird things to share as well. Please Lord, help me to stop talking about my blog friends as though they are next door neighbors or someone I have known all of my life. And help me dear Lord, to think of something witty and wise to post tomorrow.

Our Nation

281 Prayers
"Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD." - Psalm 33:12
On our National Day of Prayer, then, we join together…to petition God to show us His mercy and His love, to heal our weariness and uphold our hope, that we might live ever mindful of His justice and thankful for His blessing.
-President Ronald Reagan (who signed a bill in 1988 making the first Thursday of May a National Day of Prayer)

What the Do Not Call List Can and Can’t Do!

What the Do Not Call List Can and Can’t Do!

By Nicholas Pell
What the “Do Not Call” List Can DoThe Do Not Call list isn’t as simple as people think it is. In the first place, it can take up to 31 days to take effect. In that time, you could keep getting lots of calls. Only after that 31-day window passes can you file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
In the meantime -- and contrary to what you might have read online -- you can register a mobile number on the Do Not Call list. The FTC makes no distinction between a mobile number and a landline, so if you’ve been suffering from those annoying, pre-recorded sales calls on your cell phone, suffer no more -- just sign up.
If you do keep getting calls after the 31-day grace period is over, you can then file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission. However, the problem is that it’s easy to “spoof” a phone number, making a call look like it’s coming from a different number than it really is. So if you report a number and it keeps calling you, it’s probably going to be easier to just block the number over and over than to keep making reports to the FTC. However, the FTC has successfully brought lawsuits against hundreds of companies for violating the Do Not Call list.

What the “Do Not Call” List Can’t DoBroad sectors of American society are not subject to the restrictions of the Do Not Call list. For example, if a non-profit is calling you, it’s because the list doesn’t apply to them. Unfortunately, most political organizations and charities are non-profits, so their calls will get through. Survey takers, profit-based or otherwise, can also call you on the phone. Companies you’ve done business with in the last year and a half can also call you, as can anyone you owe money to. You’re not going to be able to skip out on bill collectors by adding your name to the list.
If you do think a caller is violating the law, you can file a complaint in the same place you sign up for the list: at

Found this on FB.  I truly wanted to save this one.  How about you?

As much as I enjoy summer BBQs, nothing has me running in faster than being attacked by mosquitoes. Lucky for me, I came across this non-toxic repellent which is not only effective, but looks AND smells pretty too!

Here's what you need:
  • 4 Mason Jars (you can also recycle jelly jars, etc)
  • 40 drops each – Cedarwood, Lavender, Lemon and Thieves essential oils (or use your own combination of oils but these are known to help to repel the buggies)
  • 2 fresh lemons
  • 2 fresh limes
  • 8 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • water
  • Floating tea light candles
And don't forget:
