“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
Yes I'm a day late! Yesterday just got away from me! With that said and my need for coffee (LOL). I have two examples of coffee grinders. Both where used to grind coffee beans. Before you could perk your coffee (no coffee makers, with timers), you first had to grind your coffee beans. The top one has a drawer to catch the ground beans, the one on the bottom , would fall into a container, or you could hold the container under it. My sons used to love to sit and grind coffee beans for me. They would take turns holding the container while the other one turned the handle. Lot's of fun in the morning!
In 1900 the one on the top would have cost you $0.49 and the one on the bottom $0.20. Now we spend over a $1.00 for a cup of coffee. How things have changed. We purchase our coffee ground in a plastic container, have a coffee maker with a timer, so we can have our coffee ready first thing in the morning. This part of the modern world I love, but I also think we need to go back to a simpler time, at least once in a while. Have a great day, and enjoy a cup of coffee, and think of your grandmother or great grandmother grinding coffee beans.

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".
