Precious Memories By: Kay Christopher

Teenage friends When I was a little girl, few people in the Gap had TVs. We didn’t get one till I was in grade school. All TVs were shown in black and white, and there was nothing on the air to see until around 6 o’clock in the evening. The old screen pattern would come on about 9 p.m. and the TV stations were off the air until the next morning. We didn’t have cablevision or satellites. We had an antenna inside a metal pole that was attached to the house. We could get Channels 6, 9, and 10 out of Knoxville, and on a clear night, we could get Channel 9 and 12 out of Chattanooga. If the wind blew hard, or you wanted to watch a different channel, you had to go outside and turn the antenna. You’d turn the pole until someone from inside would yell, “Now”. I remember us watching the old Grocho Marx and Amos & Andy Shows. That was Daddy’s favorite show. Saturday mornings were the best for us kids. We watched Gene Autry and Roy Rogers fight the bad guys and come out without a scratch. After a few years, there were game shows, such as What’s My Line? and Truth or Consequences. We watched horror movies on Friday and Saturday nights until we would fall asleep in the floor in front of the thing. I remember when I saw my first color TV in someone’s house. We were Trick or Treating in Pine Hills and I saw one playing through their front door. I thought how lucky they were to be able to afford a color TV. Probably in the early 60s, we got our first color TV. Kids from all over the neighborhood would drop by at night to watch it. I recall the first time NBC showed their color programming icon which was the peacock. We were amazed at the beautiful colors that were displayed when Bonanza was shown in living color. Again, our kids will never experience the simple things of life like watching a TV for the first time, or seeing a new program in color. All the advances in technology has taken away something our kids will never know--they won’t realize what they have, because they never had to do without it.

“To find what you seek in the road of life, the best proverb of all is that which says: "Leave no stone unturned.” - Edward Bulwer Lytton

Top 8 Wedding Movies 8 - My Big, Fat Greek Wedding Dowdy, plain Toula (Nia Vardalos) feels like a failure in the eyes of her traditional Greek parents. At 30, she's single and thinks she'll never find a Greek man to settle down with. "My Big, Fat Greek Wedding," released in 2002, is a charming and comedic look into Greek-American culture -- over-the-top stereotypes and all. Toula's luck changes when she meets shy American Ian Miller (John Corbett), but it's a relationship that her parents have a hard time accepting. After Ian pops the question, Toula's large Greek family begins interfering with every last wedding detail, making the affair all about their ethnic heritage. In the end, the wedding may be big, but we can promise you that the laughs are even bigger. 7 - The Wedding Singer Who doesn't like to reminisce about trends like acid wash jeans, big hair and Day-Glo sweatshirts? The 1998 comedy "The Wedding Singer" is one of the best nostalgia films dedicated to the 1980s, but it's also a classic wedding flick as well. The year is 1985, and Robbie Hart (Adam Sandler), a wedding singer, meets sweet waitress Julia (Drew Barrymore) at one of his gigs. Both are engaged to the wrong people, and after several humorous events, the pair discovers they're in love. The ending not only does it include a cameo by rock star Billy Idol, but who can resist singing along to Robbie's good-humored ballad "Grow Old with You"?

6 - Bride Wars The 2009 comedy "Bride Wars" is a laugh-out-loud movie. Emma Allen (Anne Hathaway) and Liv Lerner (Kate Hudson) have been best friends since childhood, and both dream of one day walking down the aisle at the glamorous New York City Plaza Hotel. The trouble brews as they realize in horror that the Plaza has double-booked their weddings on the same day. Both refuse to change their wedding date, resulting in a battle of the brides so ugly that they resort to everything from hair dye to orange tanning spray as ammunition. 5 - Father of the Bride (original) This charmer is one even your in-laws are sure to love. The original 1950s-era "Father of the Bride" is full of maudlin moments from a seemingly simpler time, but it's Spencer Tracy's refreshing snarkiness as the father of the bride that we love. The overall appeal is clear: A wedding's more than gowns and guest lists; it's a time to share your feelings with those you love. 4 - The Wedding Date "The Wedding Date," released in 2005, gets a top spot for an inside look at family dynamics during an extended wedding weekend. Debra Messing pretends a male escort is her loving boyfriend as part of a ploy to make her ex-fiance jealous. Somewhat predictably, Messing's character falls for her paid muse. We favor the subplots that provide a delicious peek at the sometimes-twisted love and loyalty sisters exhibit under pressure.

3 - Wedding Crashers This movie's fictional account is something we'd recommend watching more than once. "Wedding Crashers" makes the top five because we can view it with our best girlfriends -- or our entire wedding party -- and laugh off a few prenuptial jitters. The 2005 comedy stars cuties Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn as womanizers dedicated to their craft; they make sneaking into weddings an almost-adorable pastime. 2 - The Princess Bride An '80s classic, "The Princess Bride" has sweet Westley uttering, "As you wish" to his beloved Buttercup with great regularity. It is, in fact, all he ever says to the object of his affection. Lest you begin to think this is just a "kissing movie," there is plenty of action, too. Fencing, torture, giants, chases, revenge and a monster or two keep the story moving in a Homer's "Odyssey" kind of way -- which is why it's great for date night with your beau. And # 1 is - The Hangover If your impending nuptials have left you in need of a good laugh, press play for "The Hangover." We know you've probably already seen the 2009 comedy, but it's worth a second sit-through for the belly laughs alone. There's just something so right about losing your soon-to-wed friend during a night of partying in Vegas. Plus, everything turns out OK in the end, which is really the moral of any good wedding movie.

The Minister and the Smoke Detector It was common for the Minister to invite the children to the front of the church for a short talk before they left for their lessons. On one occasion, the visual aid was a smoke detector. He asked the children if anyone knew what it meant when an alarm sounded from the smoke detector. Young Johnny raised his hand and said, "It means Daddy's cooking dinner."

Louise Redden, a poorly dressed lady with a look of defeat on her face, walked into a grocery store. She approached the owner of the store in a most humble manner and asked if he would let her charge a few groceries. She softly explained that her husband was very ill and unable to work, they had seven children and they needed food. John Longhouse, the grocer, scoffed at her and requested that she leave his store at once. Visualizing the family needs, she said: 'Please, sir! I will bring you the money just as soon as I can.' John told her he could not give her credit, since she did not have a charge account at his store. Standing beside the counter was a customer who overheard the conversation between the two The customer walked forward and told the grocer that he would stand good for whatever she needed for her family. The grocer said in a very reluctant voice, 'Do you have a grocery list?' Louise replied, 'Yes sir.' 'O.K.' he said, 'put your grocery list on the scales and whatever your grocery list weighs, I will give you that amount in groceries.' Louise hesitated a moment with a bowed head, then she reached into her purse and took out a piece of paper and scribbled something on it. She then laid the piece of paper on the scale carefully with her head still bowed. The eyes of the grocer and the customer showed amazement when the scales went down and stayed down.. The grocer, staring at the scales, turned slowly to the customer and said begrudgingly, 'I can't believe it.' The customer smiled and the grocer started putting the groceries on the other side of the scales. The scale did not balance so he continued to put more and more groceries on them until the scales would hold no more. The grocer stood there in utter disgust. Finally, he grabbed the piece of paper from the scales and looked at it with greater amazement. It was not a grocery list, it was a prayer, which said: 'Dear Lord, you know my needs and I am leaving this in your hands.' The grocer gave her the groceries that he had gathered and stood in stunned silence. Louise thanked him and left the store. The other customer handed a hundred-dollar bill to the grocer and said; 'It was worth every penny of it. Only God Knows how much a prayer weighs.'

The Heavenly Reveal The temporary Sunday School teacher was struggling to open a combination lock on the supply cabinet. She had been told the combination, but couldn't quite remember it. Finally she went to the pastor's study and asked for help. The pastor came into the room and began to turn the dial. After the first two numbers he paused and stared blankly for a moment. Finally he looked serenely heavenward and his lips moved silently. Then he looked back at the lock, and quickly turned to the final number, and opened it. The teacher was amazed. "I'm in awe at your faith, pastor," she said. "It's really nothing," he answered. "The number is on a piece of tape on the ceiling."

Your Sins Are Gone Forever, Luke 22:14-71 and 23:1-56

Peter denied that he knew Jesus three times. Be proud that you know about Jesus Christ. Be proud of who you are. You are a child of God. God loves you very much. He sent his only Son to die on the cross so that your sins would be forgiven. Tell God you are sorry for hurting him when do not obey his commandments. He will forgive you and welcome you to his heavenly home.

Where’s Barney? A small child with a bad cough was taken by her parents to a hospital emergency room. A nurse, examining the child's lungs with a stethoscope, told the child, "I have to see if Barney is in there." "I have Jesus in my heart," the child replied. "Barney is on my underwear."

Voted top 10 beaches

A Honolulu beach named for Duke Paoa Kahanamoku, the Olympic gold medal swimmer known as the “father of modern surfing,” has claimed the top spot in the list of annual “Top 10 Beaches 2014” released Stephen Leatherman, a.k.a. “Dr. Beach.” Hawaii and Florida beaches dominated the top 10. Surprisingly, no California beaches made the list. Once a beach reaches the top of the list, it is retired to make room for others. Number two on Dr. Beach's list this year is Barefoot Beach in Bonita Springs, Florida., which moved up, after re-evaluation, from its number six slot in 2013. Located in a 342-acre county park, the beach is 8,200-feet-long and has small waves, shallow water “and if you like seashells, there are millions of them,” said Leatherman. Rounding out the top five are St. George Island State Park in Florida, Waimanalo Bay Beach Park in Oahu, and Hamoa Beach in Maui. Dr. Beach's Top 10 Beaches 2014 1. Duke Kahanamoku Beach.

What is Jello made of? Watch it wiggle. If you've ever eaten in a cafeteria or attended a cookout or family reunion, chances are good that your dessert and salad options included some form of Jell-O. Hundreds of recipes use Jell-O to create everything from your simple institutional-style gelatin squares to ornate designs that incorporate varied flavors, fruit and whipped toppings. Jell-O consists of four basic ingredients: •gelatin•water *food coloring •sugar or artificial sweetener and artificial flavors. How can one possibly mold Jell-O into so many different shapes? The gelatin in Jell-O is what allows you to get so creative -- but what exactly is gelatin, anyway? Gelatin is just a processed version of a structural protein called collagen that is found in many animals, including humans. Collagen makes up almost one-third of all the protein in the human body. Collagen is a fibrous protein that strengthens the body's connective tissues and allows them to be elastic that is, to stretch without breaking. As you get older, your body makes less collagen, and individual collagen fibers become increasingly cross-linked with each other. You might experience this as stiff joints from less flexible tendons, or wrinkles due to loss of skin elasticity. Gelatin can come from the collagen in cow or pig bones, hides and connective tissues. Today, the gelatin in Jell-O is most likely to come from pigskin. Collagen doesn't dissolve in water in its natural form, so it must be modified to make gelatin. Manufacturers grind the body parts and treat them with either a strong acid or a strong base to dissolve the collagen. Then the pre-treated material is boiled. Controls at every step of the process ensure purity and safety. The materials are washed and filtered repeatedly. During this process, the large collagen protein ends up being partially broken down; the resulting product is a gelatin solution. That solution is chilled into a jelly-like material, cut and dried in a special chamber. At this point, the dried gelatin -- about 10 percent water -- is ground. If it's going to make Jell-O, it will be ground into a fine powder.

Where was the largest industrial spill in U.S. history?

Weed-Be-Gone 1 Gallon Vinegar 2 Cups Epsom Salt 1/4 Cup Dawn Dish (The Blue Original)

A few hours before dawn on Dec. 22, 2008, the walls of a dam holding 1.1 billion gallons of coal ash crumbled, spilling the toxic concoction into the town of Kingston, Tenn., and creating the largest industrial spill in U.S. history. The wave of ash, leftovers from burning coal mixed with water, wiped out roads, crumpled docks and destroyed homes.

It will kill anything you spray it on. Just mix and spray in the morning, after the dew has evaporated. Walk away. Go back after dinner and the weeds are all gone!

Laminate items without a machine Tempted to buy a laminating machine? Well, now you don’t have to! Here’s how to laminate recipe cards, ID’s, and more simply using an iron, laminating pouches, and a t-shirt: • Grab an old t-shirt • Turn the iron on the cotton setting • Using a laminating pouch (buy some for as low as $5.04 for 20-ct), place the item you want to laminate in it • Place the pouch inside the t-shirt (so it’s in between two layers of cotton) • Press firmly for 30 seconds over the area where the pouch is • Let cool and remove.

Aunt Hattie's "Hurry-Up" Recipes

Household Hints * To kill weeds and grass on walks and driveways--spray with vinegar. * To polish copper, rub an ample amount of ketchup on the copper and let it stand for 5 minutes. Rinse off the ketchup with hot water and dry to find an incredible shine. * Burned Pans? Sprinkle with baking soda and dribble with just enough water to moisten. Allow to sit for several hours. The burned stuff will lift right out. * Baking Soda: Remove Bugs from Windshield * Mix baking soda with warm water to make a paste. Spread the paste over your windshield for fifteen minutes. Then wipe or spray off with a hose. * Plastic Melted on Toaster * Nail polish remover will remove this easily. * Blenders & Food Processors * Let these clean themselves. Fill partway with warm water, add a drop of dishwashing liquid, cover and run at low speed. Run with clear water to rinse thoroughly. * If your range uses the permanent metal filters, clean them in the dishwasher. * Smelly Kitchen? Place a sliced lemon on a pie plate in a 200 degree oven for 20 minutes. * Use the vacuum cleaner to quickly clean kitchen drawers without removing everything. Place a layer of cheesecloth over the suction tube and vacuum out any crumbs, dirt and debris. * Deodorize dishes, pans, cutting boards or utensils with those same pungent odors, simply add 1/4 cup of lemon juice to your dishwater. * Fireplace Soot Odor? To diminish and remove this odor, after you clean out the ashes, place a shallow pan of baking soda for a few hours or overnight in the fireplace. * Grease Stains on your wallpaper? Try mixing corn starch and water and make into a paste. Rub on with a soft, clean cloth. Test this in an inconspicuous area first.

Penny Pinchers Gravity. When cleaning your house, always clean from top to bottom. Gravity carries dust down onto lower surfaces. Prevent brooms from slipping when you prop them against a wall. Cut off the finger of an old rubber glove and slide over the handle. Streak-free, lint-free windows. Just use crumpled up pages of newspaper to wipe off your window cleaner. If you see streaks when finished, know which side they are on! When washing windows, use horizontal strokes on one side and vertical strokes on the other. Unclog your iron. Pour straight white vinegar through the iron. Make sure to rinse it out when the vinegar has done its magic. Remove a burned out light bulb from a recessed fixture. Since there isn't enough room for your fingers, you can make a little handle using duct tape. Avoid breaking light bulbs in your hand. Light bulbs can be hard to remove. Put a light coat of petroleum jelly on the threads of the new bulb. Remove furniture glue. After taking apart any piece of furniture for re-gluing, here's how to get rid of the old glue stuck in the joints: spray or brush vinegar into the joint. It usually works in minutes. It won't harm a finish and it leaves a white film that simply wipes off after it dries. Remove candle wax from carpets. Place a brown paper bag over the wax and gently run a warm iron over the bag. Shine linoleum floors. Drops of paraffin in water. "Wax" a floor. Add two tablespoons furniture polish and ½ cup vinegar to a bucket of warm water. Ceramic tile cleaner. ¼ cup baking soda, ½ cup white vinegar, and one cup household ammonia in bucket. Add one gallon warm water. Stir until baking soda dissolves. Wear rubber gloves and apply with scrub brush or sponge. Rinse. Wall cleaner. Mix ¼ cup washing soda, ¼ cup white vinegar, and ½ cup ammonia in a gallon of warm water Remove crayon from painted walls or painted wood. Spray the surface with WD-40 and wipe with a soft cloth. If residue remains, wipe the area with a little soapy water.

You can be a human lie detector It's easier than you think to become a human lie detector. Look for Suspicious Behaviors By themselves, each of these behaviors can just be signs of stress, or even a person's natural mannerisms. One can occur by chance, but when two or more of these behaviors suddenly appear at a moment when lying could be expedient, you should be skeptical. For example, when you ask a salesman how reliable that used car is, it suggests he's lying. Here's the top eight list of suspicious behaviors: •A change in the voice's pitch. •A change in the rate of speech. •A sudden increase in the number of "ums" and "ahs." •A change in eye contact. Normally, one makes eye contact one-quarter to one-half of the time. If suddenly, at the convenient moment to lie, he's staring at you or looking away, beware. •Turning his body away from you, even if just slightly. •Suddenly being able to see the white on the top and bottom of a person's eyes, not just the sides. •A hand reaching, even if momentarily, to cover part of the face, especially the mouth. •Nervous movement of feet or legs. Of course, in order to notice a change, you need a baseline. So you must first watch the person when talking about innocuous issues. A Mixed Signal Also look for mixed signals. When someone's telling the truth, her words, her face and her body language are all congruent. For example, if a person is honestly saying that she likes you, her face is usually relaxed, offering a gentle smile and warm eyes. Her body is calm and open. But when she's lying, something is usually inconsistent. In the most obvious case, she may be saying she likes you, but she's not smiling. She may even have a clenched fist. Better liars can muster a smile, but it doesn't look natural. Even better liars can put on a convincing smile, but their eyes aren't smiling. Still better liars can control their entire face, but their bodies seem closed or cold. Look for mismatches between words and body language. When you've gotten a signal -- a change in body language or a mixed signal that the person may be lying -- ask for more information about the same topic. Are those same lying signs apparent? That can confirm your suspicion. Of course, there's no foolproof way to detect lying. Some people are terrific at covering themselves up, especially if they are naturally emotionally flat or have practiced their lying skills over many years -- certain political leaders come to mind. But if you look for behavior changes and mixed signals at lying-expedient moments, you will improve your BS detector.

Interesting Facts About Lightening Bugs (Fireflies) Fireflies talk to each other with light. Fireflies emit light mostly to attract mates, although they also communicate for other reasons as well, such as to defend territory and warn predators away. In some species, only one sex lights up. In most, however, both sexes glow; often the male will fly, while females will wait in trees, shrubs and grasses to spot an attractive male. If she finds one, she'll signal it with a flash of her own. Fireflies produce “cold light.” Firefly lights are the most efficient lights in the world—100% of the energy is emitted as light. Compare that to an incandescent bulb, which emits 10% of its energy as light and the rest as heat, or a fluorescent bulb, which emits 90% of its energy as light. Because it produces no heat, scientists refer to firefly lights as “cold lights.” In a firefly's tail, you'll find two chemicals: luciferase and luciferin. Luciferin is heat resistant, and it glows under the right conditions. Luciferase is an enzyme that triggers light emission. ATP, a chemical within the firefly's body, converts to energy and initiates the glow. All living things, not just fireflies, contain ATP. Firefly eggs glow. Adult fireflies aren't the only ones that glow. In some species, the larvae and even the eggs emit light. Firefly eggs have been observed to flash in response to stimulus such as gentle tapping or vibrations. Fireflies have short lifespans. An adult firefly lives only long enough to mate and lay eggs—so they may not need to eat during their adult life stage. The larvae usually live for around a year, from mating season to mating season, before becoming adults and giving birth to the next generation. Fireflies are found on almost every continent. Fireflies love warm, humid areas. Because of this, they thrive in tropical regions as well as temperate zones—they come out in the summertime in these environments—on all continents except Antarctica. Fireflies thrive in forests, fields and marshes near lakes, rivers, ponds, streams and vernal pools. They need a moist environment to survive. Fireflies are medically and scientifically useful. The two chemicals found in a firefly's tail, luciferase and luciferin, light up in the presence of ATP. Every animal has ATP in its cells in amounts that are more or less constant—or should be. In diseased cells, the amount of ATP may be abnormal. If the chemicals from fireflies are injected into diseased cells, they can detect changes in cells that can be used to study many diseases, from cancer to muscular dystrophy. But that's not all they're used for. Electronic detectors built with these chemicals have been fitted into spacecraft to detect life in outer space, as well as food spoilage and bacterial contamination on earth. Fireflies don't make tasty prey. When attacked, fireflies shed drops of blood in a process known as “reflex bleeding.” The blood contains chemicals that taste bitter and can be poisonous to some animals. Because of this, many animals learn to avoid eating fireflies. Pet owners should never feed fireflies to lizards, snakes and other reptilian pets.

The Dog Days of Summer July 3 - August 11

Everyone knows that the “dog days of summer” occur during the hottest and muggiest part of the season. Webster defines “dog days” as... 1 : the period between early July and early September when the hot sultry weather of summer usually occurs in the northern hemisphere 2 : a period of stagnation or inactivity But where does the term come from? Why do we call the hot, sultry days of summer“dog days?” In ancient times, when the night sky was unobscured by artificial lights and smog different groups of peoples in different parts of the world drew images in the sky by “connecting the dots” of stars. The images drawn were dependent upon the culture: The Chinese saw different images than the Native Americans, who saw different pictures than the Europeans. These star pictures are now called constellations, and the constellations that are now mapped out in the sky come from our European ancestors. They saw images of bears, (Ursa Major and Ursa Minor), twins, (Gemini), a bull, (Taurus), and others, including dogs, (Canis Major and Canis Minor). The brightest of the stars in Canis Major (the big dog) is Sirius, which also happens to be the brightest star in the night sky. In fact, it is so bright that the ancient Romans thought that the earth received heat from it. Look for it in the southern sky (viewed from northern latitudes) during January. In the summer, however, Sirius, the “dog star,” rises and sets with the sun. During late July Sirius is in conjunction with the sun, and the ancients believed that its heat added to the heat of the sun, creating a stretch of hot and sultry weather. They named this period of time, from 20 days before the conjunction to 20 days after, “dog days” after the dog star. The conjunction of Sirius with the sun varies somewhat with latitude. And the “precession of the equinoxes” (a gradual drifting of the constellations over time) means that the constellations today are not in exactly the same place in the sky as they were in ancient Rome. Today, dog days occur during the period between July 3 and August 11. Although it is certainly the warmest period of the summer, the heat is not due to the added radiation from a far-away star, regardless of its brightness. No, the heat of summer is a direct result of the earth's tilt.

The Moon has only been walked on by 12 people; all American males: The first man to set foot on the Moon in 1969 was Neil Armstrong on the Apollo 11 mission, while the last man to walk on the Moon in 1972 was Gene Cernan on the Apollo 17 mission. Since then the Moon has only been visited by unmanned vehicles.

(discard apple afterwards) 3) Loosen Up That Brown Sugar – Simple place a apple wedge in a bag of hardened brown sugar and tightly seal the bag and wait a day or two and it will be soft again (SCORE!) 4) Ripen Tomatoes – Place unripened tomatoes with an apple in a paper bag for a couple of days. 5) Too much salt? – If your soup or stew is too salty simply add some apple wedges for 10 minutes. The apple will soak up excess salt.

Old Wives Tales

An acorn should be carried to bring luck and ensure a long life. Amber beads, worn as a necklace, can protect against illness or cure colds. Seeing an ambulance is very unlucky unless you pinch your nose or hold your breath until you see a black or a brown dog. If you cut an apple in half and count how many seeds are inside, you will also know how many children you will have. Spit on a new bat before using it for the first time to make it lucky It's bad luck to put a hat on a bed. If you make a bedspread, or a quilt, be sure to finish it or marriage will never come to you Placing a bed facing north and south brings misfortune. You must get out of bed on the same side that you get in or you will have bad luck. When making the bed, don't interrupt your work, or you will spend a restless night in it. If a bee enters your home, it's a sign that you will soon have a visitor. If you kill the bee, you will have bad luck, or the visitor will be unpleasant. A swarm of bees settling on a roof is an omen that the house will burn down. The sound of bells drives away demons because they're afraid of the loud noise. If a robin flies into a room through a window, death will shortly follow. If you blow out all the candles on your birthday cake with the first puff you will get your wish. Before slicing a new loaf of bread, make the sign of the cross on it. A loaf of bread should never be turned upside down after a slice has been cut from it. If you say good-bye to a friend on a bridge, you will never see each other again. Do not lean a broom against a bed. The evil spirits in the broom will cast a spell on the bed. If you sweep trash out the door after dark, a stranger will visit. Never take a broom along when you move. Throw it out and buy a new one. To prevent an unwelcome guest from returning, sweep out the room they stayed in immediately after they leave. If the first butterfly you see in the year is white, you will have good luck all year. Three butterflies together mean good luck. If a candle lighted as part of a ceremony blows out, it is a sign that evil spirits are nearby. If a black cat walks towards you, it brings good fortune, but if it walks away, it takes the good luck with it.

Love is everlasting, enduring and kind Love is the word in its pages I find of promises, truth, blessings, and more If only for Jesus we open the door Love is forgiveness of mercy divine And with our Savior we can come and dine Love is a smile on the face of a friend Love is a song on the whisper of the wind It carries you through your burdens, valleys, and hills All because we choose to do the Saviors will It approaches others with care and grace And someday we will see the Saviors face Love brought Jesus to the cross Because He loved and cared for the lost Sing a song of redemption, mercy, and grace For Jesus has prepared us a place Love is everlasting, enduring, and kind All this in our Savior we find Because He loved us He gave His all So that we could on His name call Because of love He lives today To help walk us through our pathway.

When is Father’s Day? Why do we celebrate it? Father's Day is June 15, 2014 in many countries. It is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society. Many countries celebrate it on the third Sunday of June, but it is also celebrated widely on other days. Father's Day was created to complement Mother's Day, a celebration that honors mothers and motherhood.

I prayed a prayer for you today That God would supply your every need And in His pathway gently lead And keep you in the way If that would be His will Or give you grace sufficient That you might trust Him still We need His gentle hand to guide Where we have never been So i asked the Lord to stay close by And keep your heart from sin The Lord is a light unto our path And a lamp unto our feet He will never ask us to go Where He, Himself, does not lead Then I asked the Lord to help you That your life would bring Him home And win to Him another soul

I Saw A Flower Once in the forest, I strolled content, To look for nothing, My sole intent. I saw a flower, shaded and shy, Shining like starlight, bright as an eye. I went to pluck it; gently it said: Must I be broken, wilt and be dead? Then whole I dug it, out of the loam And to my garden, carried it home, There to replant it, where no wind blows. More bright than ever, it blooms and grows.

by: Pauline Owens There's so much sin in the world today it causes families to split and go separate ways the drugs and alcohol is their way of life it brings so much misery sorrow and strife the road they take will lead them to hell it don't seem to bother them they are like "oh well" its not for one week, month, or year its for eternity and they will have to endure they will crave the alcohol and drugs and wished they would have listened to the ones they loved it will be to late to call on the Lord he will never hear there cries anymore so take heed to what your doing its a battle to fight but you can do it trust in the Lord who died for us all he is always there when we call he's a merciful God who wants us to repent why do you think His son He sent He died on Calvary our sins to atone turn to Him your never alone don't take the wide road it leads to hell the fire is always burning, imagine the smell you'll have no friends no water just pain Turn to Jesus and see what you gain.

Words of Wisdom by: Elsie Wyrick

Dear friends, I have heard many people say " I guess I am ready to go to Heaven". Precious ones, when you're just guessing that will not be enough when you take your last breath here on Earth. I surely believe Satan is the one behind your guessing and he is laughing at you. Please, start to examine your heart and mind, start talking to God trust Him, He gave His only son Jesus to die on that old rugged cross for all of our sins. Don't guess your eternal life away, get really ready for Heaven.

Play with your kids this summer 1. Volunteer. This one is first on my list because I think it’s really important to foster a giving spirit in children at even the youngest age. Check out local animal shelters and nursing homes to see if they allow kids to volunteer. Your family can adopt a grandparent, or even foster an animal that doesn’t have a home. If you live in a major city, there may even be a homeless shelter close to where you are located. Many homeless shelters are for families, so they will have kids. You can volunteer to read to the kids, or keep them entertained while the parents attend classes at the shelter. 2. Create a restaurant. You can get file folders and create menus, complete with pictures of foods that you will serve. You can do this at lunch time, in the kitchen, or you can play pretend with the kids at any time and serve play food instead. Convert an old entertainment center into a play kitchen, and you will be creating hours of play time for the kids. 3. Visit the library. The library is one of the best places for kids, no matter what time of the year it is! During the summer, many libraries have reading programs – complete with incentives! At the St. Louis Public Library, kids can read books and earn Six Flags tickets! Check out your local library to see what they offer. 4. Go camping – in your backyard. Even if you have a small backyard, you can set up a tent, and a campfire. Roast some marshmallows and hot dogs, or make some s’mores! 5. Plant a Garden. Kids love to get their hands dirty, and they will be more excited about eating the vegetables if they help grow them. Most of the time when people think of gardening, they think they don’t have enough space for it. But, even if you live in an apartment, you can have a garden of some type. Try starting out with an indoor herb garden, and going from there. You can even make a little gardening box outside with a few pieces of wood. You’d be amazed at what you can grow in small spaces! 6. Go swimming. If the thought of swimming in a lake (which is free) creeps you out, consider purchasing a membership to the local YMCA. Some have discounts for summer memberships, and all YMCAs have scholarships for those that cannot afford the full membership price. Also, try community pools. Some local pools may only charge $2 for admission, which is definitely a steal if you’re going to be there most of the day. Don’t forget the sunscreen! 7. Check out the parks. You may have been to the same park 100 times, but there are so many parks – why not find a new one? Try to find a new park to visit each week. Pack the bubbles, jump rope, soccer ball, and chalk, and have fun making it an adventure!

Camping with duct tape

Hold your tent closed: A damaged zipper could leave your tent door flapping in the wind. Stick the door shut, and keep the bugs and critters out. Splint a broken tent pole or fishing pole: Tape a stick to the broken area of your tent pole or fishing rod, and you might just get one last adventure out of it. Catch pesky flies: Roll off a few foot-long strips of duct tape and hang them from a branch or your tent or cabin rafters. The DT serves as flypaper and when you depart, you can roll up the tape to toss it in the trash. No need to use nasty chemicals, either. You can also wrap plastic water bottles with duct tape to prevent cracking and leaking. Make a spear: Strap your knife to a pole and you have a trusty spear to fend off beasts, or make one into your dinner. Create a shelter: With some trash bags and some duct tape, and you have a survival shelter roof, or sleeping bag cover, a wind break, or well, there are kits of possibilities. Wrap a sprained ankle: If you trip and sprain your ankle, wrap the ankle with duct tape to give it some support. Make butterfly bandage strips: Cut two small strips of DT, and add a smaller strip across their centers (sticky side to sticky side) to create a makeshift butterfly suture. Make a sling: Fold a length of DT down the middle, so that it is half the original width and no longer exposing a sticky side. Use the strap to make a sling for a busted arm. Affix bandages: Place a sterile dressing over your wound, and strap it in place with DT. Blister care: Cover the blistered area with a bit of cotton gauze, and tape over the cotton. Make sure that the duct tape fully covers the cotton and doesn’t touch the blister at all. Create a splint: A broken ankle or leg can be stabilized with ample Uses for Dental Floss splint material, padding and duct tape. Pad the crotch of a forked Truss poultry for cooking. Fill the cavity with stuffing, cross the two legs and tie together with dental branch with some cloth and duct tape to fashion a quick crutch to go with your splint. floss. If necessary, sew the cavity closed. Make a bandage: Fold tissue paper or paper towel to cover the Repair the mesh screening on playpens. Sew up the rip with dental floss. wound and cover this with duct tape. Cut a cake. Dental floss cuts cake into neat slices. Lift cookies from a cookie sheet. Slide a strand of dental floss between fresh baked cookies and the cookie sheet. Repair a tent or backpack. When hiking or camping, dental floss can be used as a strong thread for tough repairs. Sew buttons on heavy coats. Use floss as a long lasting thread. Hang pictures or wind chimes. Oral-B Mint Waxed Floss is stronger and more durable than ordinary string. String beaded necklaces.

Racing Repeats Auto racing began 5 minutes after the second car was built. - Henry Ford As far as cheating goes, they’ll never stop it. The only way it can be done successfully, only one person can know about it. – Smokey Yunick It’s like flying jet fighters in a gymnasium - Dick Trickle was asked what racing at Windchester Speedway was like. You can tell that you’re in trouble when you feel the air on the back of your neck instead of in your face. - Buddy Baker I got hit in the head pretty hard. My clock ran backwards for two years. - Buddy Baker He ran out of talent about halfway through the corner. – Buddy Baker After the third flip, I lost control… Don Roberts after crashing in the Jade Grenade at New England Dragway in 1975. We worked 80 hour weeks for 30 years to keep from having to get a real job. – Tom Lemon’s comment on the rigors of being a drag racing. It’s basically the same, just darker. - Alan Kulwicki, on racing Saturday nights as opposed to Sunday afternoons. Auto racing is boring except when a car is going at least 172 miles per hour upside down. - Dave Barry When I raced a car last it was at a time when sex was safe and racing was dangerous. Now, it’s the other way round. - Hans Stuck I love this kind of racing, (but) these guys sure change their personalities in race mode. They’re like Doberman Pinschers with a hand grenade in their mouths. – Road racer Boris Said speaking of Sprint Cup drivers. The crashes people remember, but drivers remember the near misses. – Mario Andretti There have been other tracks that separated the men from the boys. This is the track that will separate the brave from the weak after the boys are gone. – Driver Jimmy Thompson speaking about Daytona International Speedway. Winning is everything. The only ones who remember you when you come second are your wife and your dog–Damon Hill

How to Make Homemade Car Cleaner

If you tend to wash your own car more in the summer months, check out this Homemade Car Cleaner! Using a gallon sized jug, add a 1/4 cup baking soda and a 1/4 cup dishwashing liquid. Fill the jug the rest of the way (almost to the top) with water. When you are ready to wash the car, shake the jug well to mix the ingredients. Add about 1 cup of cleaner to each 2-gallon pail of water.

“Just a small accident”

Before you return from your overseas trip I just want to let you know about the small accident I had with the pick up truck when I turned into the driveway. Fortunately not to bad and I really didn't get hurt, so please don't worry too much about me. I was coming home from Asda, and when I turned into the driveway I accidentally pushed down on the accelerator instead of the brake. The garage door is slightly bent but the pick up fortunately came to a halt when it bumped into your car. I am really sorry but I know with your kind hearted personality you will forgive me. You know how much I love you and care for you my sweet heart. I cannot wait to hold you in my arms again. Your loving wife. Tracey (Look to you left to see the small accident)

A Father's Eyes

Jonathan's mother died when he was very young and his father brought him up. Both of them shared a very special relationship. Jonathan loved to play football and his father made sure that he was always there to cheer his son at every match, even if Jonathan wasn't a part of the playing team. Jonathan being small sized, wasn't allowed to play in the main team. Nevertheless, he continued with his practice with full determination. Everyone thought that Jonathan would never be able to make it into the team, though somehow, his determination carried him through. The coach seeing his diligence and dedication decided to keep him on the roster. One day during practice, the coach met him with a telegram. Jonathan was shocked to read the message contained in it. Swallowing hard, he mumbled to the coach, "My father died this morning. Will it be all right if I miss practice today?" The coach gently put his arm around his shoulder and said, "Take the rest of the week off, son, and don't even plan to come to the game on Saturday." On the day of the game, Jonathan's college team was losing badly to the rival team. The coach and the players had all lost hope when they saw Jonathan coming towards them. Jonathan ran up to the coach and pleaded him to allow him to play this match. At first, the coach wouldn't allow him to play. However after a lot of persuasion, the coach gave in. No sooner Jonathan joined the team in the field, their scores started to improve before both the teams were on a tie. However, the real cheer came during the crucial closing seconds when he intercepted a pass and ran all the way for the winning touchdown. His team members were ecstatic. The crowd came running towards him to celebrate the win. After the match, the coach went up to Jonathan, who was seated alone in the corner of the locker room and asked, "Kid, I can't believe it. You were fantastic! Tell me what got into you? How did you do it?" He looked at the coach, with tears in his eyes, and said, "Well, you knew my dad died, but did you know that my dad was blind?" The young man swallowed hard and forced a smile, "Dad came to all my games, but today was the first time he could see me play, and I wanted to show him I could do it!"

the mud hole A motorist, after being bogged down in a muddy road, paid a passing farmer five dollars to pull him out with his tractor. After he was back on dry ground he said to the farmer, "At those prices, I should think you would be pulling people out of the mud night and day." "Can't" replied the farmer. "At night I haul water for the hole."

Is He Dead?

BILLY GRIGSBY, OWNER 354-9957 354-9290



A couple of New Jersey hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: 'My friend is dead! What can I do?' The operator, in a calm, soothing voice, says: 'Just take it easy. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead.' There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy's voice comes back on the line. He says: 'OK, now what?'

Homemade Snake Repellent

Clear your land of excess debris and plug any and all openings around the base of your home. Cover any openings that may remain or be necessary with mesh netting or wire mesh to keep out both By: Ray Collet snakes and their prey, mice. I have heard some discussion recently about how "Gateway" Avenue Ingredients: Clove oil & Cinnamon oil got its' name. Here is some information gathered from an early edition Simply mix a 50:50 mixture of clove and cinnamon oils and spray of the Rockwood Times, which actually sold for FIVE CENTS...Here is them around the foundation of your home, dog houses, walkways, the Rockwood Times had to say... garages, doors or anywhere you want to keep snakes away from. Gateway Avenue will be the name of the new four lane highway, or street running through Rockwood. This name was selected after a contest was held to select a name for the street. The contest was open to all school children in the city and over 300 names were submitted by students. For over a month a tie existed in the contest when the four civic organizations in the city who were to decide the winner voted two each on Gateway and Cumberland. The clubs were asked to vote over and the Civitan Club changed their vote from Cumberland to Gateway. The Jaycees and Rotary Club had voted for Gateway and the P.T.A. and Civitan voted for Cumberland. Turner Ingram, Rockwood High freshman, son of Mr. and Mrs. E.T.Ingram Jr. was announced by the contest committee as the winner. He will receive $10, first place prize. Three other contestants who entered the name Cumberland, will split the $10 second prize. They are, Betsy Evans, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.A. Evans, Bobby Nash, son of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Nash and Jeanette Holt, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rufus Holt. Eleven other names were selected and received honorable Mention. They are, Broadway, Center Street, Lakeland Avenue, Progress Avenue, Central Parkway, Sportsman Highway, Pleasant Street, Fairmont and Fairway. Contest committee was Edward Foland, chairman; Mrs. E.t. Ingram Jr., and Zirkle Cooper. The prizes were furnished by the four organizations selecting the name and the Rockwood First National Bank. Sure glad to see the new fishing piers being installed at the Tom Fuller Park..We weren't so lucky when we were growing up. It was along ways to walk or ride our bicycles to the lake, so we had to rely on "Chicken Fishing." What ???? You never heard of "Chicken Fishing"? Well pull up a chair and let me enlighten you a little on this subject. Where we grew up, in Clymersville there was no water around to fish in, but almost every family had a bunch of chickens running all over the yard a scratching and eating. So after a while an idea came to us boys. We would bait up a hook with a few pieces of corn or a big fat worm and cast it amongst a bunch of the chickens. And after a few casts, they would gobble it right up and you could reel it right on in. Now a 2 1/2 or a three pound Dominecker hen or rooster would put up a better fight than a 6 or 7 pound bass especially when it got it's wings a flapping. After a while we would have the chicken mounted just like a trophy fish and display it on our wall. Sometimes we would just mount the feet the way some people mount deer hoofs. Either way it was a fun time to pass away those hot , dry, dusty afternoons while growing up in a small town. Here are a few more things I remember about growing up in Rockwood. Decisions were made by going "eeny-meeny-miney-mo." Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, "Do Over," Race Issue" meant arguing about who ran the fastest. Money issues were handled by whoever was the banker in "Monopoly". Catching lightning bugs could happily occupy an entire evening. It wasn't odd to have two or three "best" friends. Being old referred to anyone over 20. Having a weapon in school meant Check with us for all your getting caught with a slingshot. Getting a foot of snow was a dream come true. Saturday morning cartoons weren't 30-minute ads for action figures. The worst embarrassment was being picked last for Hardware and Plumbing needs! a team. Baseball card in the spokes transformed any bike into a motorcycle. That will do it for another trip down Memory Lane. Don't forget our big RHS Reunion..This will be held June 2nd through June 8th at the First Baptist Church Lake Property. Yes the same place as always. This is open to all who attended Rockwood High School . Hope to see you there... My email address is if anyone has a story to share or if anyone is interested in my book, ROCKWOOD MEMORIES Vol. 2...Sorry Vol. 1 has long been sold out. They are ten bucks and can be mailed to you if you include two dollars for shipping. Until next month....Pleasant Memories... Ray...

Then, find creative ways to use them like labeling towels, washcloths or other personal items like “Sarah’s earphones”, homework and more. 3. Make magnets All those precious mementos kids bring home from school should be proudly displayed! Take a magnet and hot glue it to the back of a wooden clothespin.

Q. What season is it when you are on a trampoline? A. Spring-time! How to enjoy a perfect summer day? A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken. We got four boring seasons on the east coast: winter, spring, summer, and fall. You ever been to California? Wind, fire, mud, earthquakes. A man was driving a black truck. His lights were not on. The moon was not out. A lady was crossing the street. How did the man see her? it was a bright, sunny day. Two blonde's are on opposite sides of a lake. One blonde yells to the other, "How do you get to the other side?" "You are on the other side," yells the other blonde. A group of Yale students are traveling around the South on their Spring Break. They pass an old man, sitting on a porch. "Where you boys from?" asks the man. "Yale," they reply. The old man stands up and asks "WHERE YOU BOYS FROM!" “At my age flowers scare me.” – George Burns

**NOTICE** Working Women of WWII American Rosie the Riveter Association is trying to locate women who worked on the home front during WWII. Thousands of women worked to support the war effort as riveters, welders, electricians, inspectors in plants, sewing clothing and parachutes for the military, ordnance workers, rolling bandages, clerical, and many other jobs such as volunteer workers collecting scrap metals and other critical materials. These women have stories of their WWII experiences that are of historical value and perhaps have never been told. American Rosie the Riveter Association would like to acknowledge these women with a certificate and have their stories placed in our Archives. American Rosie the Riveter Association is a patriotic/non-profit organization whose purpose is to recognize and preserve the history and legacy of working women during WWII . This organization was founded in 1998 by Dr. Frances Carter, Birmingham, Alabama and now has over 4600 members nationwide. Current elected officers from Oregon, Maryland, Georgia, Arizona and Alabama, all serve on a volunteer basis. If you are a woman (or descendant of a woman) who worked during WWII, or if you are just interested in more information, please call the toll free number 1-888-557-6743 or e-mail We can also be contacted at American Rosie the Riveter, P.O.

This is Sad…. Retirees Seeking a Safe and Secure Retirement Have Their Income Destroyed by Bank!

Get serious about saving money

Travel in-state. Everyone always travels to different states or countries, but I bet you’d be surprised at how much fun you can have within a 200-mile radius from where you live. That way, you can save on hotel costs and maybe learn something new about your community. Give up your smart phone. Smart phones might seem like a necessity, but relax and rejuvenate after giving it up. You can also save hundreds of dollars a month on your cell phone bill. Become a coupon expert. All it takes it a little bit of time and practice to learn about couponing. You can save hundreds of dollars on groceries this way, so it’s definitely worth the time you put into learning about it! Get a roommate. Maybe you didn’t have a good experience with roommates in the past, but you can’t deny that having one cuts down on costs dramatically. For the most benefit, ask your roommate to split all bills with you, including electricity and water, so that they will be respectful about their usage. Grow your own food. Think of how much you’ll save if you grow your own tomatoes or herbs. Plus, you’ll have awesome, fresh-tasting veggies, which is great for both your wallet and your waistline. Shop at thrift stores. You can buy all your clothes and furniture from a thrift store. It’s amazing what people will give away! You can definitely find designer duds if you look hard enough. Also, be sure to go on 50% off days! Clean with vinegar. Vinegar can be used to clean just about anything. You don’t have to spend any more money on expensive products. All you need is an old rag and a vinegar/water mix to make your house sparkle. Unplug everything when you leave the house. Our very last tip is to unplug all electronic devices when you leave the house. Although it might take up some time and only save you a few dollars, this is a must for those of you who want to live the ultimate frugal living.

Without warning, the banks started recalling all of our CDs – The ones paying 7% and 8% - the ones we expected to provide us with a safe & secure, income during our retirement years. Our retirement was being destroyed by our banks, right before our very own eyes. We thought we were safe in the bank! What a terrible lesson we learned! Don’t ever trust the bank CD’s or Money Market Accounts! Retirees’ Annual Income Drops from $8,000 to $500 for each $100,000 in a CD or Money Market! 8% 2003-2014 7% 3%


You see, your banker takes every dollar that you deposit, upon which he currently pays you a measly 1% or less in annual interest… Then he turns around and... creates $5 – yes $5 – through fractional reserve lending! And what does he do with the $5? He loans it out to other individuals, charging them five, six or seven times more than he is paying you! Consider that profit margin. Not to mention the insane (and dangerous) amount of leverage. Let’s do the math. If your banker were to lend out this $5 at 6% interest for every $1… that he pays you 1% interest on, he would be making a profit of 3,000%. See calculation below: Your banker earns 6% interest on $5 = .30 cents Your banker pays you 1% interest on $1 = 1 cent

Kimberly Ezell, VP

Your banker’s Profit is 3,000% Your real return is even worse… If you have money in a certificate of deposit (CD), savings account, or money market fund… Your real return (the amount you get to keep after taxes) is actually a lot worse than you may realize. Why? Because interest earned in any of these vehicles is considered taxable income. In other words, if you are in the current top marginal tax brackets for both state and federal (39.6% beginning in 2013), Then up to 50.6% of that wonderful 1.01% gain has to be paid to Uncle Sam each year at tax time… Dropping that “High Yield CD” to a net, after-tax return of just .499%– yes, that really does mean less than one half of 1%.

Save $ on Theme park Trips Tickets It's usually cheaper to buy tickets online than at the gate. Printing tickets out at home also means less time wasted at the park waiting to buy tickets. You'll pay premium prices for one-day tickets, making multi-day tickets a better deal. Universal Orlando's one-day ticket for both of its parks runs $136, but a four-day park-to-park pass is $195.99 — just $49 a day. At some parks, a season pass will pay for itself in two visits. At Universal Studios Hollywood in Los Angeles, you can trade in a single-day general admission ticket for a pass good for the rest of the year at no additional charge. Sign up for park email newsletters, which often include exclusive deals; look for savings on sites like Check park websites like for special offers and planning guides. Some parks reduce prices during off-peak hours, like weekdays or late afternoons and evenings. Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, offers cheaper "Starlight Tickets" between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m., a great option for teenagers. Lines are shorter too. Check with your employer, union, university and other groups to see if they have access to park deals. Many parks also offer discounts to members of the military, and many Florida parks offer deals to in-state residents. Food and drink Some parks let you bring food and drinks in; others don't. You can always bring a collapsible water bottle and fill it from a fountain. If you're not parked too far away, plan a tailgate picnic at mealtime. At Walt Disney World in Florida, guests can bring a small cooler — no bigger than 24 inches long by 15 inches wide by 18 inches high — as long as it's not on wheels and doesn't contain any glass bottles or alcohol. Rent a locker if you don't want to carry it all day. If you don't mind sharing, the supersized drink is always a better deal than small cups. Some parks offer large souvenir cups with free refills. Parking If you're flying to Orlando or California and plan a multi-day visit to Disney or Universal, consider the cost of car rentals, gas and parking when pricing hotels. Even if rooms are cheaper away from the park, you might save money (and time) staying at a park-run hotel with free shuttles to and from the park. Packages at park-run properties may include other incentives, like meal discounts and extra hours at the park. Pack well Avoid rip-off prices in the park. Bring sunscreen, camera supplies and rain ponchos from home.

Your dog’s habits tell alot about him

Chases Her Tail

Pet’s Page

This amusing behavior is simply a fun way for your pup to expend her excess energy. But if she does this constantly, then she might have anal gland problems or flea allergy dermatitis. In some cases, tail chasing can be a sign of obsessive-compulsive disorder. If you can’t distract your dog from chasing her tail, or if you suspect she has a medical condition, you should speak to your veterinarian.

Licks You

While you might not always want your dog to cover you in slobbery kisses, his licks are actually his way of showing affection. Your dog has probably figured out that licking you tends to get your attention. Of course, there are other reasons dogs lick you. Some researchers say licking is a sensory tool for dogs — similar to reaching out and touching something. Another explanation could be that canine mothers lick their puppies (and puppies lick their mothers and littermates) for grooming and social reasons. So this natural behavior continues into adulthood.

Cocks Her Head

Whistling, speaking in a high-pitched voice or even making funny noises can cause one of dogdom’s cutest and most amusing behaviors: head tilting. Exactly why dogs cock their heads to the side remains uncertain, but it’s speculated that canines are trying to make sense of what they hear. They also might be trying to pick out a key word like “walk” or “fetch” to find out if what you’re saying will lead to something fun or rewarding. Another reason your pup might tilt her head is to more accurately determine the location of a sound. If she holds her head to one side without an obvious trigger, she might have a medical issue and should see a veterinarian.


Wolves howl to send messages to pack members who might be far away. They also emit the loud, low-pitched sound to enforce rank. It makes sense out in the wild, but why do domesticated canines do it? It could just be a behavior passed on from their ancestral cousins, but behaviorists also think that howling is instinctively necessary and rewarding for dogs.

Stares at You

Are your canines eyes always trained on you? Chances are, he’s hoping you’ll give him a treat or shower him with praise and affection. After all, it’s hard to resist those pleading, puppy-dog eyes. It’s important to keep in mind that some dogs consider direct eye contact threatening. So before you gaze back at him, make sure he isn’t showing any signs of aggression or fear.

Walks in Circles Before Lying Down

No matter how many times they walk in a circle before lying down, it won’t change their resting spot’s comfort. Blame your dog’s ancestors for this ritual. It’s believed that when wolf-like dogs lived in the wild, they would walk around a spot to pat down the leaves or grass to create a nice nesting spot.

Thrashes His Toys

He sure looks like she’s having fun when she vigorously shakes her stuffed squeaky duck. But the truth is, she’s manifesting one her most primal instincts: killing. We’re being a little dramatic, but out in the wild, thrashing is how he would kill her prey. At home, he’s just exhibiting innocent play behavior.

Think about it...

• If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and a man. - Mark Twain • A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker. - Buddha • Every boy should have two things: a dog, and a mother willing to let him have one. ~ Anonymous • Old age means realizing you will never own all the dogs you wanted to. ~ Joe Gores
