A Question About Drug Tests

If you are on drugs, why do you apply for a job that requires passing a drug test screening?

I mean, if you are on drugs, you know you are on drugs, right?

Or not?

It must be the drugs.

Hmmmm, you might get a job if you would just say no.

A New Cure for the Oncoming Sneeze

The other day I posted a new Cure for Hiccups and today I will share about a cure for that pesky oncoming sneeze, from my own experience.

I started to sneeze and it was obvious to my associate at work what was happening because I got that "look" on my face as I awaited the sneeze.

She quickly interjected "SAY PURPLE HIPPOPATAMUS!"

I thought whaaaaat? still feeling that oncoming sneeze, but with a curious sensation now.


And I literally felt the sneeze drain from my sinus and I never did sneeze.

Ahhhhhhhh...It Was a Good Day

Sunset at Pickwick
Originally uploaded by susanlprince.
Today I performed with the Lambuth Brass Ensemble at Shiloh National Military Park. This was our second year of performing there as part of a demonstration weekend with live artillery, and other events commemorating the fierce civil war battle fought on that land. We play civil war era music and some other military type music and the audience seems to enjoy it.

I enjoy the road trip to Shiloh and most of all I enjoy spending the day with my best friend Katie. Shiloh is very near where Katie and I use to spend our "God days" at "The River" which is the Tennessee River at Pickwick Dam. We would spend every single Wednesday there doing Bible study and just hanging out enjoying creation when she lived in Selmer, TN. It was an enjoyable time so when I have this gig at Shiloh, we make an entire day of it and go back to "The Peninsula", which is the place we laid claim to back in the day, when we would have our day on the river.

There were many people out fishing and boating today and enjoying the nice weather. It was a beautiful day and the picture depicts some of what was left of the late afternoon before the sun went down for the night. (click the picture to see more images from our day)

Katie waded in the river and splashed around in the waves that were created in the wake of the boats going by. I chose to lie on the blanket with the warm sun to my back and the cool breeze keeping me comfortable. The gentle lapping of the water on shore was relaxing and so I soon found myself napping to the lapping! It was awesome!

On our way home we stopped to eat at Risner's, a restaurant near Selmer, TN that serves steak and we would eat at on occasion when I first moved to TN. We reminisced and had a good time there before heading into Selmer for dessert at The Country Kitchen. The waitress there was a familiar face, but she didn't recognize Katie. Instead, the first person Katie ran into that remembered her was when we stopped at the Walmart south of Jackson, TN on the way home! It was pretty funny that she finally saw a familiar face once we were out of Selmer and almost back to Jackson! LOL

It was a good day.

Back to the grindstone tomorrow.

A New Cure for Hiccups

Tif told us about her day at school today. Apparantly she had a persistant case of the hiccups for the duration of one entire class. The teacher looked at her as class was ending and said "go ahead, hiccup one more time."

So, she complied.

Then the teacher said "I'll give you $4 if you hiccup again".

Tif stared and waited.


*blink* *blink*

No more hiccups!

"We Had Abortions" Petition

"I wanted to do something bigger with myself _ I didn't want to be stopped by anything,"
Tiffine Jones, 27, said in a telephone interview.

She didn't even want to be stopped by an innocent child, a baby. A baby that she helped create. Apparantly, the possibility of pregnancy wasn't going to stop her from HAVING SEX either! NOTHING will stop her from doing something "bigger" with her life.

Debbie Findling, 42, aborted her baby because tests showed her unborn child would be born with Down Syndrome.
"It's emotionally devastating," she said in a phone interview. "I don't regret my decision _ but I regret having been put in the position to have to make that choice. It's something I'll live with for the rest of my life."
Gee, I sure hope her 5 year daughter old never contracts a disease or has an accident that might change Findling's standard of living, or "quality" of life. She might regret having been put in a position that would require her to make a choice. Too bad kids can't choose their parents.Human Fetus

BREITBART.COM - Women Sign 'We Had Abortions' Petition

I just don't understand our world. We have technology to heal so why do people insist on using it to kill?

It is a VERY good thing that Nick wasn't conceived by either of these women!

The abortions are not what bloggles my mind in this article, but the motivation behind the petition and the attitudes with which people justify evil.

I agree with Judie Brown, president of the American Life League, who said about the project, "the evil practically jumped right off the page."

Life is sacred.

  • The unborn baby is a person bearing the image of God from the moment of conception (Psalm 139:13, Luke 1:44)
