“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 friends. I have found two more wonderful shops from the Dirt Road Team for you to visit on this cold February day. Nothing like shopping with your warm slippers on and something warm to drink. The first shop is EcoCessory. Having a child allergic to petroleum and petroleum by products she had to find many things that her child could live with. So this knitter has in her shop filled with scarfs from plain to ruffles. Working with yarns made from plant fibers like cotton, soy and bamboo, these totally organic yarns are then made into wonderful items with many years of life in them. Take a good look at the workmanship in her products and the care that goes into them. You will find more wonderful items in her other shop Log Cabin Creation. Next stop is over at First Fruits. Filled with flavored marshmallows, cookie, brown mix. The baked goods and marshmallows are only ship on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday so nothing is sitting in the Post Office over the weekend. You will also find jelly, jams and butter. You can pick the ones you would like with many combined package specials. Get some for yourself or to share with a friend. Now that you are hungry stop by and look at the natural hand warmers and fingerless gloves. Remember you can type "drat dirtroadteam" into the search bar on Etsy for more talented artist from this team. If you live in a small town somewhere in the world stop by and check out this team, we would love to have you. We can not visit over the fence with coffee but by computer. Small town life on the big web, life is good!

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".
