The citizens of Campton Hells Hills scored a major victory with their resounding NO to the tax and spend elected officials.  Since the last election the "leaders" have spent a lot of time trying to come up wiith some brilliant ideas, and, as a result, put three "fun" things to vote on in this pas...

So...I'm sitting here thinking of all of my vision for this year and for my life.  It all is centered around a well thought out and well planned out vision.  But, en route.... My business becomes busy and I become successful.... The problem with getting busy and taking care of clients means that ...
I have done very little blogging this year compared to my prioir years on Active Rain.  I had 2 months of being just shut out because of the internet.  By the time that I got back....I had formed a bad habit.  Something kept nagging me and told me that I needed to get my ying yang back in the blo...

With the election coming, forget your political party.  Do you know the history of our country.  Most people only remember 5th grade history. This was shared with me by a fellow co-worker.

 1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
(John 14:1-4, New King James Version) I review for BookSneeze
