Monday September 14, 2015-I am very grateful for the rain today. What a blessing!

For many living in the Valley this season, the impact of local fires coupled with hot days has certainly taken a toll in many areas, including making it difficult to breathe. The air has been rather awful. So many living in the fire prone and ravaged areas are especially being challenged with evacuations, fire personnel are fighting valiantly, and it is certainly a tremendous struggle.

...$2.6 billion on flowers, $1.5 billion for other gifts, $68 million on greeting cards, $3.5 billion on dining out and 8% of US jewelry industry annual revenue will be from this day!

Tuesday, May 6, 2008 - 9:17am in-laws are precious folks (I really mean it), we have always had a great relationship, and shared many experiences together...joyous times, not so joyous, and then plain ole' funny. I would like to share with you a couple of humorous occasions where my normally thoughtful and conscientious mother-in-law created a little stir....

As a particular family were helping one another with dinner preparations, the mother asked the youngest to go into the poorly lit pantry for a can of soup. He said, "I'm afraid of the dark!". His mother reassured him that Jesus is always with him and would be with him even in the pantry. The little boy wanted to be so brave and overcome his fear. So with head held high, steps very slow and calculated on his journey to the pantry, he grasped the handle with all his might, threw open the door and yelled in "Jesus, can you please hand me a can of soup?!".

.....okay, the correct spelling is "Southern Hospitality". My husband and I just returned from a trip to South Carolina to see our #1 son. He moved there (near Charleston) last September to take a new job. It was great to see him and to experience delightful "Carolinanes", who are exceptionally hospitable, welcomed us with extensive greetings, fed us oh too well, asked at every juncture if we were enjoying ourselves, and encouraged us to pack up our bags and "move on back"!

...seems overwhelming and destined for escalating calamity.

Crude oil supply has further been disrupted by attacks on pipelines in Nigeria that provides 400,000 barrels a DAY. Vigorous demands in China and other emerging markets are driving prices even higher. Saudi Arabia apparently does NOT have plans to increase production because they're uncertain about long-term future needs and if the consumption trend will be sustained. Mexico's oil fields are yielding less than expected.
