If you know of someone who could use this information please pass it on. A carfax report is the best information you could ever get on a vehicle.

Friends and familes torn apart

The death of a beloved family member and friend can be devastating on both parties. It is a sad, emotional ridden time that all must go through. But if the loved one did not have their affairs in order correctly it can be a hard time for all involved.
The last few days I have been experiencing a very sad time for all who are left to deal with these affairs. I can not express enough how important it is to make out a Will and have it made out correctly. If it isn't, believe me it WILL be fought over and can be fought over by all involved. Make sure you have a Power of Attorney paper drawn up. Also make sure you have an executor to carry out your wishes. Making sure you have things taken care of before you ever get sick can keep your family and loved ones from guessing what your wishes are. Or what you wanted who to have what. Make your funeral arrangements now so they don't have to, that way your wishes will be carried out. Get that bill taken care of now so they don't have to worry about it. Their minds are going to be going in every direction and making a sound decision right now is going to be difficult enough for them. Let alone trying to figure out where you want to be buried or what type of casket you might like or if you wanted to be cremated, or even how you wanted to be dressed. Even go so far as to let them know what kind of eulogy you want, if you want music played or you want someone to sing. No detail should be left to chance.
Back to the Will. Make sure once you have it written and notorized. (which you can get done at any bank) Make sure you file it at the court house so it is legal. That way there is NO fighting over anything. But again make sure you have listed "ALL" your kids--even if you give them something or not-- you must say why you give them this or why you don't give them that. Just so the will can't be contested. It will save your loved ones a BIG hassel at the end. Make sure you have all titles, deeds, insurance papers and bank information in one easy place to be found and let someone know where to find these papers. The executor should know this information. Along with where the copy of the will is and what court house it was filed at.
You never know when your time will come so it is also good to have your executor on your bank accounts so they have less trouble taking care of those matters when the time comes.
I learned a lot when my mother passed, many years ago on how a family can turn from a loving, caring bunch to greedy clawing vultures.
But in the last few days I have seen the most sadness of all that could have been avoided if tempers could have been settled and voices calmed only to see through madness.

In Memory of You, Chuck Skinner

The Lord took you all to soon is what they are saying.
But we being Christians know otherwise. That you were ready and knew where you were going. That you were going to a far better place than we can imagine right now. No more pain no more worries. Instead of you looking after us as you did morning and night, you are free to relax and finally enjoy your days and nights. Drink all the coffee you want. I'm sure it's always kept hot for you. Now you can have all the greasy food your heart desires. No liquid diet for you. Back to the robust, generous guy you are. I'm sure you're helping anyone that needs it up in heaven right now. No more hard days at work and coming home frustrated. Now you get to look at streets of the likes we can only dream of and wonderous trees of color. Hear the birds sing their beautiful songs. See the crystal waters flowing. What a wonderful sight it all must be.
No crying tears of sorrow for you as I say so long, only tears of joy as I rejoice to know where you are and that I am happy for you.

How I await the day to see you again my friend!

The Heart

The Heart

"Tomorrow morning," the surgeon began, "I'll open up your heart..."

"You'll find Jesus there," the boy interrupted. The surgeon looked up, annoyed "I'll cut your heart open," he continued, to see how much damage has been done..."

"but when you open up my heart, you'll find Jesus in there," said the boy.

The surgeon looked to the parents, who Sat quietly. "When I see how much damage has been done, I'll sew your heart and chest back up, and I'll plan what to do next."

"But you'll find Jesus in my heart. The Bible says He lives there. The hymns all say He lives there. You'll find Him in my heart."

The surgeon had had enough. "I'll tell you what I'll find in your heart. I'll find damaged muscle, low blood supply, and weakened vessels. And I'll find out if I can make you well."

"You'll find Jesus there too.. He lives there."

The surgeon left.

The surgeon sat in his office, recording his notes from the surgery, "...damaged aorta, damaged pulmonary vein, widespread muscle degeneration. No hope for transplant, no hope for cure..
Therapy: painkillers and bed rest. Prognosis: here he paused, "death within one year."

He stopped the recorder, but there was more to be said. "Why?" he asked aloud.
"Why did You do this? You've put him here; You've put him in this pain; and You've cursed him to an early death..

The Lord answered and said, "The boy, my lamb, was not meant for your flock for long, for he is a part of My flock, and will forever be. Here, in My flock, he will feel no pain, and will be comforted as you cannot imagine.

His parents will one day join him here, and they will know peace, and My flock will continue to grow.."

The surgeon's tears were hot, but his anger was hotter. "You created that boy, and You created that heart.. He'll be dead in months. Why?"

The Lord answered, "The boy, My lamb, shall return to My flock, for He has done his duty: I did not put My lamb with your flock to lose him, but to retrieve another lost lamb."

The surgeon wept...
The surgeon sat beside the boy's bed; the boy's parents sat across from him. The boy awoke and whispered, "Did you cut open my heart?"

"Yes," said the surgeon.
"What did you find?" asked the boy.

"I found Jesus there," said the surgeon.

Author Unknown - Celebrate Jesus in 2009

If you aren't ashamed to do this, please follow the directions listed below:

Jesus said, "If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you before my Father." I Am Not Ashamed.

"Yes, I do Love God. He is my source of existence and Savior. He keeps me functioning each and everyday. Without Him, I will be nothing. Without him, I am nothing, but with Him I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me."
(Phil 4:13)

This is the simplest test ever.
If you Love God, and are not ashamed of all the marvelous things he has done for you,

Let others know............

Wi-Fi Locators

You can search Jiwire's registry for 140 countries.

Another by Jiwire called Zone Finder.

Then we have Wi-Fi No COST Spot who is geared toward NO COST hotspots.

Then we have HotSpot Haven where you put in the address where you want to find a hotspot, whether it be no cost or all hotspots.

The next one I found was WiFinder, where you find public access Wi-Fi spots, which number 38558 so far.

So whether you travel or just need a hotspot once in awhile this should give you a head start as to where to find one.

But don't forget the usual places like some Staples, McDonalds, Applebees, Barnes & Noble, along with Starbucks, and many truck stops, like FlyingJ, truck stops. There are many more places out there also that I am sure you know about.
Leave a comment and add them to the list if you'd like. I'm sure others would love to know where to look for them as would I.
God Bless......

Do You Have the Right to Flip Off a Cop?

This is today's big story on yahoo. While I have to say "NO" to this, I do have to say I do agree to some of the story line from my own experience. I like to set and watch various cop shows on TV and see many times where they like to add on charges of where police get their feelings hurt when a person calls them a bad name and they then tell them they are adding charges to their arrest record for resisting arrest or such when clearly you can see on the tape the person has not resisted being arrested. Only the officers feeling have been hurt.
I know of an incident from my own experience where a close friend was arrested because they kept swearing in public (they were very upset about something and was uncontrollable but sober) and the officer told them to quit or he would arrest them for it. It so happens he did arrest them. That was many years ago and I now wonder after reading this story, if he was within his rights.
Sure I don't like hearing those words anymore than the next person but I have to admit I have let a few fly myself a time or two. Who hasn't. No one is PERFECT.
So to sum it up "those not so nice sounding words are covered under free speech."

House Resolution 615 - Congress and Health Care

On Tuesday, the Senate health committee voted 12-11 in favor of a two-page amendment courtesy of Republican Tom Coburn that would require all Members and their staffs to enroll in any new government-run health plan. Yet all Democrats — with the exceptions of acting chairman Chris Dodd, Barbara Mikulski and Ted Kennedy via proxy — voted nay.

It took me less than a minute to sign up to require our congressmen and senators to drink at the same trough! Three cheers for Congressman John Fleming of Louisiana !

Congressman John Fleming ( Louisiana physician) has proposed an amendment that would require congressmen and senators to take the same health care plan they force on us (under proposed legislation they are curiously exempt).

Congressman Fleming is encouraging people to go on his Website and sign his petition (very simple - just first name, last name and email address).

I have immediately done just that at:

Please urge as many people as you can to do the same! If Congress forces this on the American people, the Congressmen should have to accept the same level of health care for themselves and their families.

Please pass this on!

2 men murdered in our small town today.....

All because he had dislike for one, "Mr. Pouillon", because he stood around town holding up anti-abortion signs. Yes the signs were very graphic but he wanted to get the truth across as to what was happening when you were getting an abortion. Something our local Planned Parenthood Organization won't tell the teenagers who go there to get an abortion. They will happily pay for the girls to go to Detroit to get an abortion but not inform them of what they are doing to the child they are carrying.

That I know for a fact, as I took my ex-daughter in law there when she was first preg. and she had a fleeting moment of the thought of an abortion and they never once informed her of what the procedure was that she would be going through. But when I asked, they hushed me up and said if they told the girls it would frighten them. YES it should frighten them. The truth is frightening. But I took my daughter in law home and informed her of what the DR. would do to her and the baby she was carrying and she decided against an abortion and I have a beautiful 10 yr old granddaughter. My first grand child by the way.

Why is it parents will let their kids watch the violent movies on TV but be offended when a person wants to show truthful pictures?? Just because it is on TV doesn't mean it isn't real. Where do they think they get their ideas for their crime shows??? They get them from police records. From police pictures and hospital pictures. Yes they do make actors up but they only make them up to look like the pictures they have seem from real crime scenes.
The problem with parents now days is they don't want to take the time to set down and tell children the things they need to know. They hope they will learn them on their own.

My mother was that way. When I became a women I had no idea what was happening. I wasn't prepared, I had to ask my Aunt. When I got pregnant I had no idea what I was in for. When it was time to have the baby I knew nothing. I had went to no baby classes. They Dr. came in and said push and the next thing I know I had a baby laying on my stomach. I knew nothing about breast feeding.
Sure I had been a babysitter for many years but I knew nothing about being a mother.
I made sure my daughter was much more informed about things than I was. I didn't want her to feel lost like I was.

The other man "Mr. Fouss" that was murdered was a business man who was involved in a few businesses here in Owosso. He was found gunned down in his office at his Gravel company this morning. Supposedly the gunman had a bad business dealing with him.
This doesn't give anyone a reason to kill anyone.
But the Bible says that neighbor will rise against neighbor and child against parent. The world is becoming a scary place to live. I have been in this town for over 33yrs. and I have seen it go from a small friendly place where you could leave your doors unlocked at night to having to worry about drugs and the gangs that go with them, to molestations and rapes to now murders in broad daylight in front of the schools.
I see the words from the Bible coming true right here in my town everyday. I don't know when the Lord Jesus will come back but if what is happening here in my town is any indication of the words in Rev. then I see his time coming soon.

Many people ask this question and they don't like the answer. But the answer is "YES". You are your brother's keeper. Your brother isn't just your biological brother or sister either. It means anyone you come across. We do have a responsibility to care for one another.

This was first posed in the bible from Cain to God in Gen 4:9.

Genesis 4:9 (KJV)

9And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?

There are many places in the New Testament that confirm this.

Jesus, Paul, Peter and John all say we are to love one another,

John 13:34-35 (KJV)

34A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

35By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

John 15:12 (KJV)

12This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

John 15:17 (KJV)

17These things I command you, that ye love one another.

Romans 13:8 (KJV)

8Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.

1 Thessalonians 4:9 (KJV)

9But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.

1 Peter 1:22 (KJV)

22Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:

1 John 3:11 (KJV)

11For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.

2 John 1:5 (KJV)

5And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.


That is enough for now. I will put up more later. For this is a lot for some to digest all at once.

I hope your day was filled with joy and many blessings. Sometimes you have to look past the things that make you unhappy and look at all the blessings God has bestowed upon you to brighten your day. Don't let someone else's bad day take your brightness away.

Are u ready to be fined for not having Health Insurance??

I couldn't believe it when I read it in tonight's paper where they want to pass a law where if you don't buy a Health Insurance policy you will be fined.
It is just another way that they are taking our rights away from us and making it a government run America. Not run by the people but run by the government. We are such cowards and won't even stand up to these jerks. What can they do to us?? If we were to band together we would have the upper hand. Other countries do it -- why can't we???? Great Britain is run like that.. run by the people. They get what they want. Better health care and wages when they want it not when the government wants to give it.

Go here to read the full article.

You might not like Michael Moore but google him and watch his movies to see what other countries do to get what they want. There is no reason why we can't do the same. They live very well and there is no reason we can't also........................
Sicko is just one film to watch about the health care of other countries that people get for FREE.
