This group is about helping others.And others helping us. Where we share our kindness with others. This is a Dog eat Dog world but we all need the help of others. So lets all be here for each other. Just a smile or a kind word can make a differance. Thank you Bob for helping me with this.Let us remember that God is with us every step of the way.

Every Vote Counts - Are you registered?

An ol’ cowboy once told me, “Son, keep yor’ Saddle straight—
Cinched up tight ‘n squared away, an’ don’t depend on fate.

For if yor’ a straight shooter, yor’ life will be real tame.
A handshake will be good ‘nough ta trust yor’ family name.”

Now, I went along believin’ the whole world thought like that,
But fifty years have come ‘n gone with politicians gettin’ fat!

They get upon that barren stump an’ swear to make things right,
But what I know ‘bout them folks, makes me lose sleep at night.

Empty promises an’ shoutin’ - ‘bout things they’re gonna CHANGE—
Folks aren’t really thinkin’ how their life—they’ll rearrange.

It’s all about the poor folks, minorities ‘n such—
Money from the rich guy, an’ taxes that ain’t much.

But when I get ta figurin’ what will happen later on,
Like when factories an’ plants close, an’ rich guys are all gone—

Who’s gonna pay the wages to feed my kids and Ma?
I ain’t forgot DEPRESSION times, an’ anguish that I saw.

An’ derned if I can figure out why some folks are on the DOLE—
Could be a case a LAZY, an’ a life without no goal.

If no one in DC’s lyin’, an’ the old ways never was,
I guess I’d give ‘em latitude in their promises an’ buzz.

But I been ‘round just long enough to know what’s right ‘n wrong—
An’ I ain’t taken in so much, nor followin’ the throng.

There’s one more thing I gotta say ‘bout EVIL in this world,
“Ya don’t kill a grizzly with sweet talk, an’ screamin’ like a girl.”

Men fought an’ died to keep us safe, an’ let our FREEDOM ring—
That there’s the tune I’m followin’— the anthem, that I’ll sing!

Zelda's computer update

I have discussed Zelda's computer situation with my Geek Squad technition. They said they would get her up and running using my contract number. Therefore, I've sent Zelda a card with all the information she will need.

Discussed this with Zelda twice today. She seemed a little weak and tired. Perhaps because it was nap time. (Sure was for me.)

That's all I know to do. It's got to be on her end know. If anyone happens to head her way, perhaps they could be of assistance.

Ok........on to the Halloween contest!!
