“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down...build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence...help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln
Welcome to another what is it Wednesday. The item on your left is an old plow, pulled by man, horse, or mule. The item on the right is a tiller, pushed by mankind. Great tools to use in a garden. We are all getting our garden ready for planting (and yes some of you have yours in already). In the 1900 Sears catalog the plow would cost between $9.95 to 12.95 new. I could not find a price for the tiller. Both are made from iron and wood, and in the USA. So when you work in your garden, remember how it done 50 to 100 years ago. Then enjoy your gas power tiller, and how easy it is to use.

There hasn't been much said about the military mom. Yet no wars could ever have been won without her! A military mom is a teacher of independence, perserverance, discipline and integrity, possesses a great sense of humor and can make of any house, a home. She is a woman of quiet strength who has shaped the hearts of our Bravest Heroes and taught them to value peace above all else. The military mom is unshakable in love for her country. That is how she is able to let go of her most precious treasure. A son or daughter. We proudly salute and thank the "Military Mom".
