Heal the World
by: Michael Jackson

There's a place in your heart
And I know that it is love
And this place could be much
Brighter than tomorrow
And if you really try
You'll find there's no need to cry
In this place you'll feel
There's no hurt or sorrow
There are ways to get there
If you care enough for the living
Make a little space
Make a better place
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make it a better place
For you and for me
If you want to know why
There's love that cannot lie
Love is strong
It only cares of joyful giving
If we try we shall see
In this bliss we cannot feel
Fear of dread
We stop existing and start living
The it feels that always
Love's enough for us growing
So make a better world
Make a better place
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me
And the dream we were conceived in
Will reveal a joyful face
And the world we once believed in
Will shine again in grace
Then why do we keep strangling life
Wound this earthcrucify its soul
Though it's plain to see
This world is heavenly
Be god's glow
We could fly so high
Let our spirits never die
In my heart I feel you are all my brothers
Create a world with no fear
Together we cry happy tears
See the nations turn their swords into plowshares
We could really get there
If you cared enough for the living
Make a little space
To make a better place
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me
You and for me

My father's secretary was visibly distraught one morning when she arrived at the office and explained that her children's parrot had escaped from his cage and flown out an open window.
Of all the dangers the tame bird would face outdoors alone, she seemed most concerned about what would happen if the bird started talking.
Confused, my father asked what the parrot could say.
"Well," she explained, "he mostly says, 'Here, kitty, kitty.' "


Amy

Good morning..

 Wind started last night after the  rain and hasn't stopped. Hopefully it will help dry things up before the snow that is to come today.

Not much going on ,just  work around home and a trip to town to pay a bill and pick up clothesline wire to use on the tops of the trugs.

Bubble thank  you for the new start page..and the giggle.......here kitty kitty.  ;D


Enjoy your day and stay safe..

HAPPY MARCH 🍀 EVERYFRIEND 🍀

It is a bright and sunshiny day here.  We are moving into some warmer temperatures and I am sure happy about that! 

Thank you for our nice new Soda Shoppe, BBBLE 🌷

Rain sure does sound good, AMY, but not the darn wind!  I found a nice Trug at Costco that I really wanted to order, but Bob is afraid the bottom is not strong enough as there are many reviews saying it is a light weight plastic.  He is not sure if he could give it some support in some way or not.  We just need the REAL good ones made by your honey!  I am still hoping SHIRLEY will tell me where she bought hers.  No matter if I need it or not I am NEVER going to give up on having me a nice Trug!  AMEN🙏

Michele had another treatment on her vertebras this morning.  Holding good thoughts and say prayers that it will fix her right up🙏

I wish you ALL a good rest of your day.

Jenny, racing through but wanted to let you know my kids got me the trug for birthday or Christmas.... still in the box to be put together. Got a feeling they paid too much for it, the son that did the shopping is a "no holds barred" kid. I think he said it is cedar & when I get a second I'll run out to see if I can find a name on the box (it's stored under Andy's camper). I hope they will put it together while Julie-Ellen is in town next week & I will fix them lunch.

Got calls in to "regular" doctor & cardiologist since my whaco blood pressure will determine if they can do the surgery a week from today. Need to find out what the numbers MUST be so they can do the surgery.

Bubble, the pastels in that graphic are gorgeous & it is so perfect, the reflections on the glasses, don't know how you do it.  Phyllis, I do love the snow, can imagine hiking through the woods. Wish I'd learned how to "create" like that.

Need to get a nap before more to-dos get done.  Beautiful day here in Wichita.

Amy

Today has been interesting , high winds snow and flickering lights.White outs on the highways causing pile ups.

Managed to get 20 + dozen cookies made, so will put oatmeal, chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies in the hidy hole along with cold milk.

Jenny sent you emails .

Shirley, slow down, take a deep breath and smell the flowers. You are going 100 mph!

I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.

Since I didn't make it in here this morning, this is going to be "Good Morning Everyfriend" and "Good Night Everyfriend" all wrapped up in one.

Today the temps got into the high 30s and low 40s but it felt much colder....first, because it was raining and the snow was melting and then when the sun came out so did the wind.  Mickie and I went for a long walk this afternoon and we almost blew away.  The snow drifts have melted enough that we can make our full circle again and you could tell that pleased Mickie.  She sniffed and snuffed everything she'd missed all winter and she loved every minute of it!

I got some laundry done today and now I'll have clothes to wear the rest of the week.  It was beginning to reach the point where I'd have to scrounge into the back of the drawers and closets to find something to wear.

I also made air fried dill pickles in my air fryer.  They turned out pretty good.  You dip the sliced pickles in beaten egg and then in a mixture of bread crumbs and grated parmesan cheese and put them in the air fryer for 8 minutes.  They were what my daughter used to call "more-ish".  I'll definitely have to do them again. 

Tomorrow I'm going to cook and bake normally.  I'm making Tuna patties and they're done in a frying pan on top of the stove although I've been thinking I might put one or two in the air fryer and see how they turn out.

SHIRLEY, if you really want your BP to come down, you'll have to learn how to relax!  You go like a house afire all the time and that can up anyboby's BP. 

The end of this week and into next week we're supposed to be getting temps in the mid to high 59s and I'm definitely in favor of that!  March definitely came in like a lion today with all the wind so it has to go out like a lamb!  And I'm in favor of that, too!

Tomorrow is my "accounting" day.  I'll be getting everything ready for this month's paying.  I dislike paper work more every day of my life but it's one of those things that we must do. 

I plan to hit the haystack early tonight.  I'm going back to the living room to watch Perry Mason from 9 to 10 and then I'm off to the haystack. 

I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, healthy, germ-free, snow-free, feel better day tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Happy March Oneth.  It "came in like a lamb" in central Oklahoma and, according to the weather guru on the evening news, we may have another Arctic Blast in about 20 days.  So I guess it will "go out like a lion".  :(

Shirley,  I was going to suggest that you try to think about giving up salt "until after the surgery".  I know you should make it a permanent thing but concentrating on a shorter time might make it more doable.  Second suggestion was to empty and hide all your salt shakers.  ;)

I take two kinds of b/p medicine every day - one kind in the morning and another kind at night.  My "normal" is still 140+/70something.  Doctor has finally agreed that I'd be a zombie if I tried to take enough to get it down to the recommended 120.
 Mother also had chronic high readings and her final health issues had nothing whatsoever to do with anything cardiac.

Busy day today.  Now off to relax and read.

Sleep well, Everyfriend and have Pleasant Dreams.



 

Denver

Thank you, SHIRLEY, I will look forward to hearing what brand it is.  I hope they will get it put together for you soon.  Thinking about you as you try to get your BP down so you can have your surgery.

I got your emails, AMY.  Thank you.  I want a trug😩 I want a trug🤪

Pleasant dreams to all.

Working on the salt issue.... so ate oatmeal for breakfast. Lunch & supper was "home made" Mexican food of unsalted tostada shells with refried beans, taco meat, home made salsa & 2 kinds of cheeses, lettuce & tomatoes on top. With all the spices I put in my Mexican dishes I don't need extra salt.

I checked Amazon to see if I could tell what trug the kids bought me but guess I'll have to just ask. I do like the idea of a cover to plant early. I may even plant a few dandelions to go with the endive & leaf lettuce for my gr-mother's "wilted salad". When all cut up or torn up she put a "table spoon of vinegar to a teaspoon full of sugar"... stirred & then poured hot bacon grease (with crumbles) to wilt & eat promply. She didn't put tomatoes in this salad, but slices on the side. I read in one of the links from Amy that we should plant the tomatoes in the center or deepest part of the trug with shallow roots like lettuce on the sides. Sounding better all the time, huh?

Callie, I really have been BAD about the salty munchies.... even buying the small bags of mixed potato chips, cheese & taco chips... have a whole new box of them that I will ration out as we get past the milestone. I still think the pharmaceuticals have a way of convincing doctors & medical institutions we "need to lower the numbers" to sell more pills. Okay, maybe not, but there was a program on TV about all the bribes given to keep money rolling in. Not that their testing & work isn't a blessing.... but I'm feeling a little resentful tonight about giving up and giving in (and I know it's for my own good, doesn't mean I have to like it.)  :argue:  :sealedlips:  :surrender:

Our weather looks great as far as we see ahead... but this also is the start of tornado season. I don't even remember any warnings this past year, but was such a crazy year I don't remember much at all and nothing good, for sure. Guess we need to start thinking HAPPY... So happy is on the menu for tomorrow!  Sweet dreams and God Bless to all. Love ya, Shirley

Shirley

Daughter sent a link to the one she thinks they bought me... see if this works. Since I have not seen it I don't know for sure.

when I get my raised Bed put back to gather I will take a Picture of it and get my grand daughter to help me put it in here in S & F. mien is 4FT wide and sixteen feet long. I had it on one section of my crane booms but when I was moving it it fell over and came apart. I have pbc. bows over it and can cover with plastic. and extend the grower season on both ends. If i hade it up and going now would have Lettice onions and radishes growing in it. you can do that most of the year. the top Hight will be about waste high.

Good morning.

Nice, sunny day  here, thankfully the wind has died down. Kyle has an appointment in the city but that is not until later on this afternoon. I did try to rebook an earlier appointment but nothing was available. Have a few things to do here before we head off.

Hope Gloria will soon be home and popping in here to say hello..

Shirley ,I enjoyed picking beans last year just stand reach out and pick. Lettuce, radish  multiplier onions on the sides. I had swiss chard in the middle of one trugs and it really did great.

Jane ,maybe WM sells trugs?? You are lucky enough though that you live in an area of famers markets and can get fresh vegetables.

Jenny as you could see my trugs are snowed under for the time being ,can't wait to start gardening.

Joy, hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

Phyllis,  my friend wrote to say they were making a second batch of your 15 bean soup to take to their son as he loves it.

Better go see what needs to be done before we go

Enjoy your day and stay safe..

I forgot to say that I went to the Hidey Hole and got a few cookies to have with my coffee this morning.  Thank you, AMY.  You are also right about the fact that I have lots of Amish and Mennonites in this area who grow and sell good, fresh veggetables.  But I have a perfect place to put a trug and grow flowers in it!

PHYLLIS, 15 bean soup is on my agenda for tomorrow or Wednesday.  I'll report after testing!

Hello GLORIA, whenever you look in!

Hello, JOY, LLOYD, SANDY, SHIRLEY, TOMEREADER, PATRICIA, JENNY, and EVERYONE ELSE!

what a day yesterday!  Got lost on the way to the vaccination place...it was raining...ended up on the expressway headed out of Raleigh toward the east...found our way back, I don't know how, in time for the shot...the place was really busy...felt not so great yesterday afternoon so took Tylenol and went to bed early.  But, feeling just fine this morning and my arm is only slightly sore.  Thank goodness, that is all over for me.  David gets his second shot next week.

Take care, All.

Good morning, nothing new here, so I haven't had that much to say. I did sign up for an umbrella organization of senior services, so this will be new. The fourth, a volunteer, will take me grocery shopping, and someone will call this week about setting up a cleaning person depending on hours needed and pay scale. Since I haven't been out of my apartment since the 12th, this will be an interesting trip. I've never used the grocery store carts, so I hope I don't run anyone down.   :-\

 

Denver

Thank you....Thank you....SHIRLEY!  Now YOUR trug looks like the REAL DEAL, the kind that Kyle would make for us IF we could only get up there to pick it up! Can not wait to see yours built!

Yep, not surprised to see you want a trug too, JANE!  You do have access to all of those wonderful  home grown veggies, so yes, you need a trug for your flowers! 

Sorry to read you were not feeling to good after your Covid Vaccine, PHYLLIS.  It appears it was temporary since you are feeling much better today! 

I just learned this morning that one of our neighbors is in the hospital after having a sever adverse reaction after his Covid Vaccine and another neighbor is not feeling too well either after hers.  Some are going to have a reaction, no doubt about it HOWEVER many of us have not, so please, EVERYFRIEND, do not be afraid to get yours as soon as you can because getting Covid would be so much worse and for some the long lasting effects from having Covid have been very bad. 

HAPPY to read your post, PATRICIA.......do hope this works out great for you. 

AMY, I definitely saw that you will have to wait a little longer to be able to even get next to your trugs with all of the snow that you have. 

We are off to mail in our passports for renewal.....they want an arm and a leg these days to renew AND it is 8$ to mail in the renewal the way they suggest you mail them.  Heck, we do not even know IF we will ever be able to travel out of the country ever again😩😩

Have a good rest of your day.

Jenny

we had a good surprise today. one of my two sisters came buy with a bunch of photo albums filled with old family Pictures. we spent a few hours looking over them and figuring out some of them. we all must be bad about not properly writing on them dates name's and such. hard to fifty or so years remembering who is who. we enjoyed it and figured out some of them. good night and sweet dreams.

Good morning..

A light dusting of snow last night  but nothing so far this morning.

Yesterday went well,hubby had his doppler and we did a bit of shopping. Today is catch up day and that alone should keep me busy. Toss up if I make bread today or tomorrow. :-\

I'm still in time to wish you all "Good Morning" so..... Good Morning Everyfriend!  It was in the low 20s when we got up this morning but the sun is shining and it's supposed to make it into the mid 40s by mid afternoon.  I do believe Spring is about to "spring" on us!  There couldn't be a better time.  My winter jacket is getting a bit "muxey" as my grandmother used to say and all my gloves are darker in color.  I kick my boots every time I see them and they're starting to holler!  I want to put my porch swing back out there and sit on it for a bit.  And I'd like to pack all the sweaters and sweat shirts away.  They take up a lot more space that a tee shirt does.  I suppose that's enough complaining so I'll shut up on that.

PHYLLIS's bean soup is in the crock pot and it's going to be a great supper.  I might dig some rolls out of the freezer to go with it for supper.  It's only been cooking for about an hour but it's already giving off a tantalizing aroma!  I wonder if I'll be able to wait.  I do like bean soup and this one looks to be pretty special!

I have to get back to my paper work so I wish you all a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow. Be very careful!

Sorry, Janie, I've had a whacky day. The BP cuff monitor wouldn't monitor this morning so I did my errands & got back to discover after a couple hours, that I couldn't find the little purse I keep my gift cards in. I had just bought a couple hundred dollars worth of McDonald's cards because they were "on sale" for 4 times the value.... that means I could get $800 worth of gas points & that is 80¢ per gallon off for 35 gallons. With the dollar off it is $35 off for my 55 gallon RV tank. BUT, after losing the purse full of cards on the trip to CO last summer (I know it went into the trash bag that sat by the edge of the table...it was heavy when I threw away but I was too lazy to go through to see why).... After searching the floor of the car 3 times I discovered it was under the mat and not just the sun shades where I usually hide it. Did not do my BP any good, but at least the monitor started working! Still high but about normal for me. I hope to be in bounds for the surgery next Monday!

Lloyd, I love going through my parents old photos... and did put some names on ones I had printed from Dad's negatives.  One photo was of Dad's mother and another tall lady that Dad said "Well, there is Mama and Mrs.Oreo" (it sounded like). Down in Osage County most names are either French or German & I don't try to guess how to spell.... but was surprised when I asked him "how to spell Oreo".... and he said, "Henriott" ... haha

Beautiful spring day here in KS, very light weight jacket. Cats are all out tonight, may just stay out, but I'll check before I go to bed to see if they want in. I peeked under the leaves and jonquils are out of the ground. We've had some of our deepest snows in March but kind of exciting with the changing season. Stay safe & healthy, at least we will soon be able to have picnics in the park with the little ones. I've hardly seen them this past year.... MY choice because they are around too many other kids in sports & other activities.

Sweet dreams & God Bless. Shirley
