“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. Today I have for you a Borden's Glass churn jar. The date on the bottom is March 30, 1915. Glass churn jars where used for making butter, beating eggs, or making whipping cream to go on some home made pie. This one has wire beaters, some have wooden beaters. Daisy, Borden's and Sears sold these to home makers. Our grandmothers or great grandmothers use items like this everyday. Today we run to the grocery store and buy butter, and whip topping.
Remember I having a giveaway so if you have not already signed up, please do so. Good luck to everyone.

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".
