1. I write for 15 online magazines, one of them is Familiesonlinemagazine.com I am convinced married men dress better because wives magically make ugly sweaters disappear.

It says, "I like Ike…Vote for Ike in '52" 2. Only Carbon 14 dating can tell you exactly how old it is. 3. The man with the Salvation Army kettle sees you in "that" sweater and offers you his change.

2. Cheryl's cookbook perfect for ensuring a hot homemade dinner on the table every evening.
Creative Slow-Cooker Meals: Use Two Slow-Cookers to Make Easy and Tasty Meals
by Cheryl Moeller My book finally answers the proverbial question, “What’s for Dinner?”

It’s not just a cookbook; it’s a whole new attitude and method of planning meals. Tired of crockpot meals being reduced to a soup or stew? The book is going to have you thinking differently about crockpots!

You will use two crockpots to easily cook a healthy, homemade dinner. It helps you get the whole dinner done, not just part of it. This great new idea works well for any size of family. My Crockpot Duets features beautiful recipes taste-tested at my table by her family of nine!

Ingredients: 1 gallon apple juice 1 cinnamon stick 2 apples, washed and cored 2 individual herbal apple tea bags

3. Why Don't We Have Nice Things? One of our sons (unmentioned name) asked the other day, "Why don't you have nice things in the living room from your wedding... designer mirrors... classical framed artwork... collectables from birthdays and anniversaries that you have added to through the years like NORMAL people?"

My answer, "Because our boys were normal boys. My Three Sons... If it wasn't ninja kicks, inside football tackles, and out-of-control superballs, then it was 'Jack jumped over the candlesticks,' 'boys that climbed the Christmas tree to the top,' and 'sledding, yes on sleds, down the stairs." FYI It was not our three daughters who broke everything worth displaying. :)

But, we do have real treasures of pottery that the kids created, a self portrait clay head piece of Brent's, lots of child-drawn artwork, children's portraits through the years, RJ's first grade hat on the coat hooks, and children's plaster handprints. I would rather go to my children's basketball games than to the Bulls, unless of course the kids want to go to the Bulls. :) Why don't we have nice things?

Well, for me people (especially my kids) are and were more important than things.

2 Co 1:12 "For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world."
