Good Morning.

" Begin the day with God."
.
How are you feeling this Wednesday morning ? I am feeling good, I was in my bed a littler earlier last night and I did rest good. It feels cool to me this morning, I guess we can safely say Fall is here. I am going to see what AOL says about the weather for today.
.
This is a beautiful view Great Smoky Mountains Web Cam on sunny days- why not look today?
.
Today...9/30/09
.
Sunny. High 72F. Winds N at 5 to 10 mp

.
That sounds good to me.
.
Tennessee Granddaddy always has something good, we better check him out today. Dad/
.
We need to have our
Starbucks Coffee a little earlier this morning. I have it ready and waiting on you, and it is that Sumutra+ brand, It's good, Sit down and relax and enjoy a cup with me. I do need a kind word and a smile right now. Dad.
.
I must go to Sara's blog now. The coffee above helps me smile a little bit but it takes a look at my Friends Oreo and Misty to really get my best smile going, and there is only one place to find them, at Sara's blog. Just click here Sara's Dog Training and smile with me. I love Shelties and though I am old I still would like to have one right here by my side this morning. Dad.

I just this minute received this link from one of the first readers of my blog. http://anniesgardens.blogspot.com/

I have run out of anything to say so what can I do there is no choice but to stop. I have enjoyed being with you this morning I hope that I have been able to get your smile started. I hope that we all can remember that we are starting off this morning with a clean sheet, and we do need to be careful with it. What will it look like at the end of this day ? I hope that we can be kind to everyone today and give them a smile every chance that we have.

ENTRY # EIGHTEEN HUNDRED & FIFTY-THREE

The beautiful picture above was sent to me by Joan. Here is what she said: "Thought you might enjoying seeing some bright red New York State apples on the tree, right before we picked some of them." Thanks Joan! Dad.
.
" Time is so precious-do not waste it ".
.
." Begin the day with God."


GOOD MORNING,

Here is a little chuckle for you today.

.
. And, I just know this will be me someday! DAD.
.
This is dedicated to all of us who are seniors, to all of you who know seniors,and to all of you who will become seniors.It pays to be able to laugh about it when you are!

"WHERE is my SUNDAY paper?!" The irate customer calling the newspaper office, loudly demanded to know where her Sunday edition was."Madam", said the newspaper employee, "today is Saturday. The Sunday paper is not delivered until tomorrow, on SUNDAY".

There was quite a long pause on the other end of the phone, followed by a ray of recognition as she was heard to mutter,"So that's why no one was at church today."

This chuckle was sent to me by Joan.

.Sara's Dog Training is where I always go each morning before I begin writing my blog. I can write and think so much better when I am smiling. I need to thank Sara every morning as I sit here smile and writeing. The shelties Oreo and Misty have been so interesting , It's a pleasure to watch them. You can see the love that they have for Sara. If you want to go to Sara's blog , all that you need to do is click on the link above. Dad.

..Josh Billings wrote this thought below.

."A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself."

This bring back sweet memories of the Two Shelties that belonged to me, Beauty and Scottie. If they were here this morning they would be lying right here at my feet.
.

For the Birds:

Which Seeds Are Best?As the weather turns cooler, it’s time for backyard birders to start cleaning out feeders and stocking up on supplies for winter feeding. Trying to decide which bird foods to buy? Surprisingly, the answer is not clear cut. Maybe the link below will help.

.Learn more. find out what the birds like at this link.

John C. sent this link below, I don't know so well about some of these helpful hints. DAD.

.
AOL must have made an error in their weather report this Tuesday morning, they did not say anything about rain.

.Today..9/29/09.

.
Sunny to partly cloudy. High 67F. Winds WNW at 10 to 20 mph.

.I am slow in offering you a cup off Starbucks Coffee this morning. It is ready and I hope that you will stop and see me before we both go out into this cold cruel world, maybe we can both go out with a smile.

This link is interesting this morning Tomato Casual I hope that you will check on it Dad.

.
I have been missing my friends Sara, Oreo and Misty. And I am in a hurry to go see them this morning. I need a Big Shelty smile to get me back in the right mood to do a little work this afternoon. Looking at those two Shelties will do the job.

.
I am sure by now that you know the way to Saras blog Sara's Dog Training this will take you right where you need to go. DAD.
.
What do you think about us having a cup of that good
Starbucks Coffee I am useing the Sumatra + bold this morning, I like it very much. Why don't one of you pour me a cup sincc I am still a little tired. The link above will tell you a lot about Starbucks if you are interested. Dad.
.
As we were leaving the convention grounds yesterday afternoon I was thinking, what will be my thought for today. After hearing all that we did the only thing that I could think of was-

" Time is so precious. do not waste it."
.

You can see this above on my blog every day, and after sitting in the convention I know that it is so true. As I begin each day I would like to remember this. Dad.
.
Don,t forget to go see Jim this morning you know wher he is. Tennessee Granddaddy
.
I do need to stop, I know that I have not said very much. but after I rest a bit today I think that I will be able to go strong again. I am tired but I can still smile. Dad.
.
I hope that all goes well with you today, and we all do need to show all by our smiles and kindness that we are happy and content. We were reminded at our convention that whatever happens we should always remember that " God is still in control."

.
If all is well I will see you at 4 a.m. in the morning.

Below is another little poem that "Guess Who?" wrote.

God is in the Smallest Things
...
I see God in the smallest things,
The bee upon the flower,
This is a quiet way He shows
His mighty power.
For while we humans swat and swing,
To drive the bee away,
The little flower welcomes it,
And bids it stay.

Now about the WEATHER here in East Tennessee.
.
Today..9/24/09
A few showers in the morning with scattered thunderstorms arriving in the afternoon. Humid. High 83F. Winds light and variable. Chance of rain 50%.
.
Here's a little joke that might make you chuckle:

Did you hear about the woman who was a true optimist? She had only three strands of hair on her head. She said, oh, well, I can at least plait my hair. Then as time went on, she just had two hairs on her head So she said, Well, now I can just part my hair. Finally the last two hairs on her head fell out. She said, "Well, that's OK, now I won't have to comb my hair any more!"
.
Now after that don't you think that I need to be in some meetings? Dad.
.
Sara Will you please do something for me this morning ? Tell Misty and Oreo that I will not be able to see them this morning as I will be away from home. But I am telling everyone to please click on this link Sara's Dog Training and it will take them to Sara's blog. DAD.

This is all that I have time for today, I will miss all of you today.

Below is a nice poem. Do you want to guess who wrote it?
.


All I Saw Was You
..
Married fifty years ago,
Before the fire they sat.
She took his hand and gently said,
“We’ve had a good life, Matt.
Remember how, the day we met,
The sky was, oh, so blue?”
“No, my dear, I really don’t,
For all I saw was you.”

“Remember our first date, my love?
I wore a brand new hat,
The wind came up and blew it off,
Don’t you remember that?”
“I’m sure your hat was lovely dear,
With flowers of every hue,
But I wasn’t thinking of your hat,
For all I saw was you.”

"What about our wedding day?
All our friends were there.
We had the clothes we’d dreamed about,
We made a handsome pair!”
“Of course, of course, my dear,
But I don’t recall my suit.
I know a lot was going on,
But all I saw was you.”

She snuggled closer to him,
On his shoulder laid her head,
He gently kissed her wrinkled cheek,
And as he wept he said,
“We’ve been together fifty years,
A couple loving, true.
And every day I thank the Lord,
That all I saw was you.”

This is our friend Sara who lives in Italy. She said that she went hiking in Trentino - that is a mountain region, in Italy. She will be graduating from college soon.

.

I think that I could just write Rain for the weather report and not even look at what AOL says about it and I would be close to right . But we better listen to them. Here it is,

.Today..9/21/09

Showers and thundershowers likely. Humid. High 77F. Winds SSE at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 70%.

I am going to let this do for today. I hope to have a thought for today later this morning.

If I have left out something please go to my side panel. You might find it there. Dad.

I do hope that we can enjoy this Monday morning and not worry about it, we need to face the world with a smile and kindness and let them know that we are happy and content.

I will see you in the early morning if my life is spared another day. Dad.

Throwing Tomatoes for Charity
Tags: , , , ,
.
By Vanessa Richins.

.
I’ve sometimes cringed a little when I hear about the big tomato fight events, like La Tomatina in Buñol, Spain.
I know it’s tradition and people enjoy it thoroughly, but I also think about how many people those tomatoes could feed.
I was at least a bit happier when I learned about a recent such event in Reno, Nevada.
They wanted to recreate the famous Spanish tomato fight in their own city, with a twist.
Participants paid $10 on August 29th, 2009 to join in the tomato chucking fun. If they wanted to aim their weapons at the mayors of Reno or Sparks, they paid $50. All money went to the American Cancer Society.
Forty thousand pounds of tomatoes were donated by

Below is a beautiful poem I want to share with you. the author is Bradford Torrey

Be still my heart! Have faith in God, and wait;

Although He linger long, He never comes too late.

He never cometh late; He knoweth what is best;

Vex not thyself in vain; Until He cometh, rest.

.Until He cometh, rest, Nor grudge the hours that roll;

The feet that wait for God are soonest at the goal.

Yes, soonest at the goal That is not gained with speed;

Then hold thee still, my heart,

For I shall wait His lead.

I need to rush over to Sara's house , this is the link that will take us there Sara's Dog Training I don't want to be late.( you know that Sara is a teacher and I should be there on time) I always enjoy seeing Oreo and Misty and the great change that I can see in them. Sara you have done a wonderful job. You three make me Smile every morning. We all are proud of you and glad that we have you as a friend, DAD.

Here is my thought for today.

" The strength of smiles is such that we can detect them even when we cannot see another person's face. Telephone companies or call centers suggest that their employees smile while talking on the phone. Smiles can be observed in the voice as well as on one's face."

This is another one from the article that Eric sent me. Dad.

.

It looks like that the humming birds are going to be busy on Cam # 3 today. Dad.

..

It is time for me to stop and get ready to get outside, I have not told you very much, I hope that you will go to my side panel o find anything that I have left out of my blog.

We all need to give the very best that we have today at home on the job or wherever that we are,( and I want you to know that includes old Dad.)

We all can smile and be kind, so let's not forget to do that. " Live for others every day."

Hello Ray from Knoxville!

I’m so pleased that you have found my blog interesting. I try to make it a place that folks come, and if the photography is good enough, then they will forget about their troubles if only for thirty seconds. Please feel free to set up a link to my blog. I would be very grateful.

Best regards,

Well how are you this Thursday morning. I know that you are up and anxious to get to your job. ha.ha. You know that I am just teasing you. I think that we all are about the same in the morning, it just takes a while to get going.
.
I can help a little by having this Starbucks Coffee ready. I am using their Sumatra X Bold this morning. It smells so good this morning, sit down I am pouring this morning, DAD
.
Here is my thoughts for today, taken from the link that Eric sent me about smiles up above. Dad.




."A smile spreads a message of goodwill. A smile costs nothing but creates brightness to the life of all who feel it. .

A smile takes only a moment to make but can last forever in a memory.

They cannot be bought, borrowed, or stolen.A smile seems like the spring after a troubling winter, a sadness and discouragement in life.Therefore, smile as often as possible."

More Ways of Preserving Tomatoes: Freezing Juice and Stewed Tomatoes
Tags:
, ,
.
By Michelle Fabio
.
A little while ago, we talked about
freezing raw tomatoes, and here are some more preservation ideas to make the most of your tomato crop:
Freezing tomato juice.
After washing and trimming the stem ends from the tomatoes, cut into quarters or eighths. Simmer on the stove for about 5-10 minutes, then take off the heat and let sit for about an hour.
When they’re sufficiently cool to work with, press the pieces through a sieve or grinder so that you are separating the juice from the seeds and skin, which you can discard.
Pour into bags or containers, being sure to measure first so you know how much to defrost. Seal, label, and freeze.
You can also put the juice in ice cube trays for uniform serving sizes.
Freezing stewed tomatoes.
Wash, cut off the stem ends, and peel tomatoes, then put in pan and simmer for 10-20 minutes, covered. When finished, put pan in ice water to cool, then transfer tomatoes into storage containers, leaving about an inch at the top.
Seal, label, and freeze.
Happy freezing!

Here is a little thought that I like. It brings back precious memories of the time when Jim and Mary were growing up. What a wonderful time that LaVerne and I had. Dad
.
" My father used to play with my brother and I in the yard. mother would come out and say " you're tearing up the grass" " We are not raising grass," Dad would reply " we're raising boys."

This thought above almost brings tears to my eyes. Dad.
.
This is enough for this Tuesday morning. we all need to get down to buisness and do something good today, remember this day will never come again. let us use it in living for others not ourselves. One of my thoughts was " Many years of life are wasted living for thyself alone." and I am afraid that I have wasted a lot of years. I am going to try to do better with the little time that I have left. I hope that I can see you in the morning.
