Simple Discoveries in Life

I thought this was a cute picture. It kind of reminded me of my sweet little girl when we observed her watching her own shadow as she was singing a little diddy and moving around. Isn't it neat to see how excited little ones can be when they discover new things. Even things that the rest of us wouldn't think twice about. Another example of how we should be like a little child and find joy in life and in discovering new things, having enthusiasm when faced with a challenge, and not worrying knowing that our Father in heaven can be trusted.

Happy Valentine's Day Trivia

Did you know
-- that 192 million Valentine's Day cards are exchanged each year and that doesn't even include the packaged kids valentines for classroom exchanges.

-- that 1,271 locations employing 43,379 people produced chocolate and cocoa products in 2003. California had the most, not Pennsylvania which you might would guess, but it had the second most. All of these locations shipped out $13.5 billion worth of product.

-- that there were 22,022 florists nationwide in 2003 employing 113,270 people.

-- that I am cheap; therefore, I try to avoid contributing to the above figures : )
Sorry honey, you know I will always love you!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Automakers conspire against short people

What do you think this guy is thinking?

I know I am only 5'9", but this is ridiculous.

I guess if we do get in a wreck, my adam's apple will stay in place.

Maybe this is payback for all those years that I didn't buckle my seatbelt.

I work in a basket.

Check out this building!!! Is that cool or what? It is the home office of The Longaberger Company in Newark, Ohio. I guess they are the nation's premier maker of handcrafted baskets... yeah whatever, I just think their building is cool. I guess this building is 160 times the size of their Medium Market Basket. For a better picture and description, go to the company's web site at and click on Visit Us and then Home Office. Also check out the picture of the Longaberger Homestead. They also have other interesting facts and features of the building. Can you imagine working in this basket/building. Hmmm.

Amazing card trick!

You may have already seen this in your email, but I thought this card trick was pretty clever. I changed it slightly in order to get it to show up here.

This card trick will freak you out!

Pick one of the following cards. Don 't click on it; just keep it in your head.

Now, think about the card you picked in your mind for a few seconds, then scroll down past the blank space. As you think about the card, I will attempt to "read your mind" and remove the card that you have selected.

I have now removed your card!

SCARY ISN'T IT. Now scroll up and do it again, this will freak you out.

Try this a few times and see if you can figure it out. Don't fret, it took me awhile to figure it out and I have given you the simple explanation in my comments.

Have a great day!
Remember, this is just a silly card trick. Turn to God and you will find out that everything about Him is truly amazing!!!
