FINAL UPDATE: I'm so excited. The final count in pounds on the recycled cards for the ST. JUDES CHILDREN'S RANCH is????? ;))) 43 1/4 lbs!!! Going to post office today to get flat rate boxes. My secret wish was for 30 lbs. EVERYONE PLZ REMEMBER: to save your cards throughout the year and when it's time again in November to get the word out you'll already have a jump start. PLUS: if any of you weren't able to get cards together this year there's always next year..A HUGE THANKS TO EVERYONE!Also, It seems that the word is spreading because several other small businesses and woman's organizations have expressed that they want to be included for next year!

Inner Smile

Feeling joyful is not necessory for presence, but its one of the most powerful ways to induce it. Joy creates an almost instantaneous sense of expansion-an inner smile that's like a warm bath. Some call this warm bath "flow" or "spirit." Experiencing it connects us to ourselves and to everyone and everything around us

~~~~~~How Did Jefferson Know~~~~~

When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe .Thomas Jefferson

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not. Thomas Jefferson

It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world. Thomas Jefferson

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. Thomas Jefferson

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government. Thomas Jefferson

No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. Thomas Jefferson

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. Thomas Jefferson

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. Thomas Jefferson

To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical. Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:'I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property - until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.'

Just a Quick Update

Last week when going to volunteer work at PCAV (prevention of child abuse VA), I had waiting by my desk a large Christmas bag of Holiday cards waiting for me. Not only did PCAV save their's for St. Jude's Children's Ranch, but had sent emails to their affiliates and ask them to do the same. That night when I went through them they weighed in just above five pounds. YAY! And a definite thanks! I called the other Churches and Businesses and was asked to wait until the deadline of February 15th due to the fact that they were still coming in. Also many other individual people/friends have told me they have some also. I am very excited and thankful and very much look forward to the end result. Trust I will keep you posted on the final result. Thanks Everyone!
