With Gratitude.

O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife.

Who more than self their country loved
And mercy more than life!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine!


The Big Race.

For as far back as I can recall the Indy was the race to watch. I knew this because it is one of two sporting events that my Momma ever watched. {Tennis being the other} I believe that when she was a young girl her father was either involved with some type of car racing or was a race fanatic. She never truly elaborated and I never pushed for information as I got older. {Her father left her mother and the 4 girls when my momma was 14 and she truly never got over the pain.} I just knew that if the Indy was being raced it was on our TV and Momma was front and center.

As I got older and moved away I would often phone her at commercials to see if she was enjoying and listen to her discuss what had been seen thus far. I miss that.

This morning my TV is set, as it should be, to the race. I feel a bit melancholic as I watch. The memories are sweet. I guess that is what counts.

Are you watching? {Did you watch?}

Does anybody really know _______?


Eco Friendly.

100% Recyclable Materials in Product & Packaging.
No Replacement Batteries Ever.
No Extra Costs.
Charges in Minutes.
Intense Vibrations.

THE EARTH ANGEL uses advanced, patented technology to operate which will never require replacement batteries. Unlike conventional vibrators the specially designed base does not open.

Built into the base is a small flip handle which you extract and turn clockwise. This motion charges the power core contained within. The power core will generate and store the energy for use. Turn this handle to power up THE EARTH ANGEL and toy is good to go giving instant, intense vibrations.

When finished using THE EARTH ANGEL, unused power will be stored inside for future use. Just pop the handle back into the base and put away. Indicator lights will show how much power remains unused.

Kinda gives new meaning to working for it, doesn't it? heh.
