*  FESTIVE ~ NOVEMBER ~ A Time of Giving Thanks  *

You can BUY this beautiful Holiday center piece@ BC CRAFTS Thanksgiving:
Pilgrim Edward Winslow described the Pilgrims' Thanksgiving in these words:
"Our harvest being gotten in, our Governor sent four men on fowling [bird hunting] so that we might, after a special manner, rejoice together after we had gathered the fruit of our labors. They four in one day killed as much fowl as... served the company almost a week... Many of the Indians [came] amongst us and... their greatest King, Massasoit, with some ninety men, whom for three days we entertained and feasted; and they went out and killed five deer, which they brought... And although it be not always so plentiful as it was at this time with us, yet BY THE GOODNESS OF GOD WE ARE... FAR FROM WANT."

In 1789, following a proclamation issued by President George Washington, America celebrated its first Day of Thanksgiving to God under its new constitution. That same year, the Protestant Episcopal Church, of which President Washington was a member, announced that the first Thursday in November would become its regular day for giving thanks, "unless another day be appointed by the civil authorities."

  • Do not disturb. Already disturbed!
Hunting Walsenburg: Well, we're back from hunting. We did alot of relaxin' and had fun, and I got alot of reading done. The weather was unseasonably warm and little Bobby was ready to head out and get the job done! The back woods are just beautiful this time of year. We were hunting in some of the prettiest mountains ya ever saw. The fresh snow had just capped the peaks, but travel went unhindered. We didn't bag any elk this year, probably because we didn't see any! We stumbled upon some deer....far and few between. However, several times, we did come across a bunch of wild turkeys! It got pretty interesting one morning as we heard some shooting across the valley. Seems my friend Dom, and his party came across a few bucks(NO-NOT MONEY)! Dom got a real nice 4x4 buck....very meaty fellow, and the other folks got a couple of 2x2 bucks! Well, of course we helped drag them out. Boy that was fun. Of course while we waited to see some activity, we had time to take some great wallpaper background pics. Stan Jr. caught this jet streaking across the sky and the moon in full was beautiful. In more ways than one, it was a successful event, in that we were together and enjoying each others company. And next years planning starts NOW!

Talk About Dumb.... My Car!....Unknown
While grocery shopping at the local Kroger, a man's car was stolen. Dumbfounded, the man stood on the curb trying to figure out what to do. His answer came just a few minutes later when the larcenist approached the man in the newly stolen vehicle and asked for directions.

From the editor:
Folks I'm gonna step on alot of toes here! Neither Age/ Race/ or religion have anything to do with my thoughts! A big congratulations goes out to the folks in Palm Beach county, Florida, who were so confused by a simple ballot~for admitting to the world how truely stupid folks can be! Now remember, I'm in my early fifties. I looked over the ballot that was used in that county. You have a name ~ with an arrow next to it ~ pointing to a round circle to punch.
Example: G.W. Bush      --->      0
Apparently common sense never even entered the picture down there! If you can't figure out something that simple, then the terms, Ignorant~moron~stupid~idiot, doesn't even begin to describe the intelligence of the people who claim the ballot was to hard to figure out. What really scared me, was the Rocket Scientist, who claimed the ballot even confused him! What really amazes me, is that the folks who claim the ballot was to confusing, even found the polling place and got back home, without getting lost! Common Sense, Folks, that's all it takes. Look across from the name and vote.

By the way: these are the same folks that can play 5 bingo cards at the same time without a problem! Hey! There's an a ballot to look like a Bingo card, but instead of numbers, put in names!

Then of course, the good ole' loud mouth, Jesse Jackson had to step in, and tried to make the minorities all look as dumb as he is! What a joke.....yeeaahhhh.....let's all keep voting 'til we all get the results we want!!!!!

Be careful with herbal teas:
Many women avoid all drugs during pregnancy, swearing off caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, and prescription and over-the-counter medications. But they think nothing of drinking cup after cup of herbal tea. If this sounds like you, realize that despite marketing claims that herbal teas are "all natural" and "health tonics," they could be harmful, especially if you drink too much. High doses of herbs can cause diarrhea, vomiting, and heart palpitations. Although no U.S. regulations specifically address herbal teas, any herb considered fine for food use by the Food and Drug Administration is presumed to be safe for teas as well. If you enjoy herbal teas, steer clear of unfamiliar ingredients and look on packaging labels for contents that are normally part of your diet (such as mint or orange extracts); choose them over unfamiliar substances (such as cohosh, pennyroyal, and mugwort, all best avoided during pregnancy). Or consider making your own concoction using juices, lemon rinds, cinnamon, cloves, or other well-known ingredients, along with boiled water or decaffeinated tea. Never make a tea from any plant in your own backyard unless you're 100 percent sure what it is and that you can safely take it while you're pregnant.
NOTE: Always Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!

Use the Right Tool for Giving Medication:
One of the best ways to ensure that your baby gets the right amount of medicine is to give it to him with the right tool. That means putting the kitchen spoon back in the silverware drawer and using a dosage spoon, medicine dropper, or oral syringe specifically designed to help you figure out the right dose. Your best bet is to use a plastic oral syringe marked with different measurements. Syringes work better than spoons for babies because you can be sure you're getting all the medicine into your child's mouth and, consequently, down his throat. In a pinch, it's all right to use a "true" measuring spoon -- the kind you use to measure cooking ingredients -- but these are often very difficult to get into a baby's mouth. Add the fact that many have at least four or five other spoons attached to them in a set, and you can see why this method is often more trouble than it's worth.
NOTE! Always check with and follow the advice of your physician!!
