Today's story would go like this: I got called up to start an I.V. on a man who has driven out everyone who has entered his room to do anything for him. On the phone I am informed that the guy is impossible and they want to know if I can come up and handle the situation. I...

THE MAN WHO MADE THIS LITTLE RED FLOWER

 

A man walked down the street the other day,
The ladies of the Auxiliary came his way.
He took a poppy and gave them a dime,
He mumbled, "Why do they take up my time?"
He put the poppy in the buttonhole of his coat,
Next to some pencils and notes.
When he got home he placed the poppy on the table,
That red paper flower with a little white label.
As he looked at the flower; as if inspired,

He's probably a man who...

NEWS FROM THE HILLS

Dear Cousin,

 

Our loving Master has looked down upon our winter-weary hills and sent us the blessing of a few mild and sunny days. It is only a foretaste of springtime to come, but it is more than welcome after the cold, snowy days of the past weeks. It is a pleasure to take a walk on a day such as this. Warm sun shined upon the grove of hemlocks and released a pleasant, piney scent into the air. There was the rich, earthy fragrance of thawing soil carried by a playful little breeze that...

On the Internet, new content arrives online at an exponential rate. In fact there are more words on the Internet, than that of all printed material. But not just words are what we look at when we surf the WWW. Pictures, interactive content such as animation, and some video are online. In recent years audio files and content have bombarded the Internet.

IT'S GIRL SCOUT COOKIE TIME

Something new or at least new to this writer – the Girl Scouts are now bringing cookies to your door – no more waiting for your order to be processed. That's what I like; cookies on demand, no waiting. I must admit I'm a cookie junkie and have to date, bought more than my share of boxes. I like them all but prefer any cookie with peanut butter in or on it. I predict that the Girl Scouts will sell more cookies using this new method.

Please Troop leaders, give me...
