    10/23/2016 11:16:21 AM, by TERRY1038

  • On The Lighter Side

    10/23/2016 7:49:49 AM, by NEPTUNE1939

    A doctor on TV said that in order to have inner peace in our lives during this political campaign, we should always finish things that we start. Since we all could use more calm in our lives, I looked around my house to find things I'd started & hadn't finished. I finished a bottle of Merlot... Read more

    10/22/2016 9:52:50 PM, by MLIEN913
