The Hand That Rocks the Cradle

I received this yesterday and thought it was so special I want to share it with everyone. so it will be my quote and story for today.

Woman, how divine your mission
Here upon our natal sod!
Keep, oh, keep the young heart open
Always to the breath of God!
All true trophies of the ages
Are from mother-love impearled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.

Blessings on the hand of women!
Fathers, sons, and daughters cry,
And the sacred song is mingled
With the worship in the the sky ---
Mingles where no tempest darkens,
Rainbows evermore are hurled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.
William Ross Wallace

It doesnt matter what you believe, the power of women cannot be denied. We are the ones in charge of life and how offspring shape-up is in our hands. Any debate on this subject?

Mother's Day

As today is Mother's Day I want to write my Mom's favorite quote:

"How like a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child." Shakespear

I never saw myself as this but she must have. :)

My story for today comes from my #1. She sent me a gorgeous, huge bouquet for Mother's Day, lovely card and we talked for some time on the phone. Here is the story --

Sleeping soundly, she was awakened by a lot of noise, banging on her windows and a shouting of ' Your house is on fire, your house is on fire." All of this about 2 a.m. As she crawled out of bed, threw on some clothes, she told me she could smell smoke. When she got outside there was this man, drunk, obviously on his way home from the bar, jumping up and down, yelling, "Your house is on fire, do you have a hose?" #1 pointed out he was standing on the hose. He unstood himself and they proceeded to get water on the fire which had started in the garage. #1 informed me he jumped a 4' high fence and only God knows how he managed that, must have had some of help from above. Anyway the garage and house were saved, #1 is fine and repairs have started. I wondered why I hadn't heard from her. No phone, no computer and too busy at work. The flowers make up for it all. A typical Mom - me.

"Learning makes a man/woman fit company for themselves" Young This is my quote for the day. Think about it.

Story for today: I honestly found this in a book!!

"Onnust?" "Sright!" Oakum off!" "Sure zima stanninear." "Jah mean it?" "Ubetcha." "Ooseddy did?' "Burlova there." Wah sheno bout it?" "D'no. Swatshesedd." "Oakum off!" Yercoddin." "Thinkso fu wanta. Bawcher Chrimus gifs?" "Nochett. Bawchoors?" Naw. Saylookeer!" "Watchasay?" Jeer baw Tomman Lil-----" "Notsloud! Somebody learus." "Lettum. Nothinmuchno how." "Quitchercoddin." "Oakum off! I ainacoddin." "Gracious Imus begittinalong!" "Somus I." "Slong!" "Slong!"

Believe it or not, this was written in 1913!! Blew me away. I have read it afew times and part of it makes sense but not all of it as yet. Guess this is just another reason I push education and READING - READING - READING all the time. :)

My Promise for May 2

Quote for today:

"We cannot always oblige, but we can always speak obligingly." Voltaire

Story for today: Practical!

Soon after the first baby was born, a certain man's wife went upstairs one evening and found him standing by the side of the crib and gazing earnestly at the child. She was touched by the sight, and tears filled her eyes. Her arms stole softly around his neck as she rubbed her cheek caressingly against his shoulder. He started slightly at the touch. "Darling." he murmured dreamily, "it is incomprehensible to me how they can get up such a fine crib as that for 99 cents."

I told you these were OOOOOLLLLD stories. :) How about $5.99?

Today's 1 may Story

I sometimes feel this way about my blog when I have no 'fellow bloggers' reading.

In Boston, a young lawyer, who spent most of his time trying to seem busy and prosperous, went out for a while, leaving on his door a card neatly marked:

"Will be back in an hour."

On his return he found that some envious rival had inscribed underneath, "What for?"

Please do not be of envious nature, it makes one ill and I can take your stuff so go ahead, blog at me. :)


I promised to give you another proverb everyday. I am late. Sleepy and need to practice my harp. ha

'Dost love life? - then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of. Ben Franklin

Like this one?

Oh! He-- What next--

Oh hell what next? I have decided to share alittle more of my life. I HAVE FOUND THE PERFECT HOUSE FOR ME, I cannot buy it until I sell the house I am in or rent it. Dadburn it I am so upset and will lower the price of this house to rock bottom or maybe rent it out if I can find a proper price for a renter and give them a 2 year contract. Anyone with ANY ideas, feel free to tell me or offer any advice you might have. I know this is the worst time to sell but I am in love with the new house. I am certain it was made for me. Wish I had a happy face to put here. PLEASE RESPOND, I AM SO NICE.

Little Johnnie

This is a case in point!! I promised you an old story & here it is:

Johnnie," said a teacher in a phsiology class, "can you give a fimiliar example of the human body as it adapts itself to changed conditions?'

"Yes mam, " said Johnnie, "my aunt gained fifty pounds in a year, and her skin never did crack."

Hope you got a chuckle out of this, have you stories of your own? Add them. Thanks.


This is my new blog name. Why? Because as bloggers who find success, we are 'together' because we think alike or are interested in the same things. I have decided to add a daily quote and perhaps an old story to my blog. For today the quote is the one I use on my email - "The nobelist mind the best contentment has." Spencer

Does this appeal to you? Nobelist is not misspelled, it is the way Spencer wrote it so please don't correct me. Already caught by a friend who always corrects me. Later today I will post a story of old, most are very funny. Let me know if you have a story and share it with me and the rest of the world.

I am a diet controlled diabetic. Sometimes I feel as if I am either too 'high' or too 'low', when I check I am fine. The worst is when I am sweating or cold and it is not the proper response for the temperature out of doors. I guess what I want to tell you is DONT SWEAT IT!. If you check yourself and you are OK, let it go. Now all I have to do is convince myself of this. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. SSoooo Eat right, check yourself and ASK ME ANY ???? YOU MIGHT HAVE. I started this blog to help you get healthy will you pleeeeeeeeze help me?

Just Another Day!

Seems to me everyday is a preview of things to come. Obama bit the dirt today when trying to defend himself regarding his 'Mentor', 'Spiritual Advisor', the now infamous Reverend Wright who seems to be more wrong than wright!! Seeing the sad look on Obama's face as he tried to hard to negate all the things he said in the past and just could not bring himself to do the job as yet. How can one sit and listen to one's mentor for 20 years and not know them????? Hey my University mentor was mine for only a few years and believe me I understood everything he said or wanted me to do, learn. OOOHHHHH WWWeellllllll Maybe some of us are just slow on the uptake. Can you imagine Mr. Obama NOT listening to MRS. Obama? Me either, I think we know who wears the pants in that family. Looking forward to your response. Pleeze let me know what you think. I really want to hear from you.

Everyone is so involved with politics & I am bored with it. Thought it would be a good idea to get onto something we can do to improve our health. So I decided to tell you how you never have to have a cold, flu, virus or allergies affecting you again. Honest, no joke been around for over 3000 years and most dont know it. Make you curious? Want to know? OK, I shall tell you; get 2 bottles of Nasal Saline Solution and a tube of Antibiotic Cream , store brand is ok don't waste money, you may have noticed my car sitting in the driveway waiting for food aka fuel the price of which sucks. I can trace this back treatment to the Egyptions, who, every morning aspart of daily routine did as I am telling you only they used a small pitcher to pour the soluton up their noses. For you it is so easy & start now as part of your daily 'clean-up' squirt 4 times into each nostril and then using a q-tip put the antibiotic cream around the lower part of each nostril to the beginning of the cartilage. Repeat this at bedtime and you will never suffer from a cold, flu, virus or allergies that mess up your head. I promise this is true and I have been using it for over 30 years myself, I never get sick. This is a freebee for you, my book is filled with them. Dr. T

Dr. Thaxter Teaches

Time has come for all the people of USA to be extremely careful. Not only with their assets but also with their families. Times will be getting so different we will be very confused. Examples - the weather, all over our country; politics; killing and fighting over nothing; drugs not only illegal but also prescribed to the max. The attitudes of persons we know and perhaps love. I do not understand this and I read, study and listen to as many varieties of persons available to all of us. I am amazed that college graduates do not know the geography of the USA, let alone the capitals of each state. I have found many do not know who is in the Executive Branch (what is that), have no idea who their Senators or Congress persons might be. Heaven forbid they know who sits on the Supreme Court and how they vote. How many of you actually have read the Consitution or the Bill of Rights? Do you have a copy? It is startling that these are the 'Leaders' of the future!!! God help us all. Most mouth what the Media says and never think for themselves. Being entertained is a 24/7 obligation of anyone but the person grasping for the attention. We had to entertain ourselves AFTER we did all our work, school & other. My first job was at age 4, I sold punches on small cards. When I was 10 I took a job at the local hospital in order to buy a pair of custom made ice skates because my Father said, if I wanted such an expensive, luxury item ($62) I could but it myself. I DID. Today it seems all I hear is : gimme, gimme, gimme. I think you need to grow up and become responsible citizens before it is to late.
