"Nigglywiggly" is the actual name of the little paper flag thingie on a Hershey's Kiss. ~ copied

Hello and welcome. Today is Monday, March 13, 2017, and it's our privilege to give it our best shot. That may be asking too much for some of us, but, it is a good way to face the day. We live in a world where information overload is the norm. We can only take in so much. Even so, we end up missing a whole lot of the details. Here's a few that you may or may not know. ~ Most American car horns honk in the key of F. ~ The name Wendy was made up for the book "Peter Pan." ~ Barbie's full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts. ~ Every time you lick a stamp, you consume 1/10 of a calorie. ~ The average person falls asleep in seven minutes. ~ Studies show that if a cat falls off the seventh floor of a building it has about thirty percent less chance of surviving than a cat that falls off the twentieth floor. It supposedly takes about eight floors for the cat to realize what is occurring, relax and correct itself. ~ Your stomach has to produce a new layer of mucus every 2 weeks, otherwise, it will digest itself. ~ The citrus soda 7-UP was created in 1929; '7' was selected after the original 7-ounce containers and 'UP' for the direction of the bubbles. ~ To escape the grip of a crocodile's jaws, push your thumbs into its eyeballs - it will let you go instantly. ~ Reindeer like to eat bananas. ~ No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver, and purple. ~ Mel Blanc (the voice of Bugs Bunny) was allergic to carrots. ~ The electric chair was invented by a dentist. ~ The very first bomb dropped by the Allies on Berlin during World War II killed the only elephant in the Berlin Zoo. ~ More people are killed annually by donkeys than in airplane crashes.~ (Source: http://www.djtech.net/humor/useless_facts.htm) Be thankful that I stopped there. Believe it or not, there were 500 of them.

When it comes to Community Coffee, the Boy Scout motto applies: Be Prepared!
If that has given you a headache I have something that will help. I've always found that a steaming hot and strong cup of Community Coffee is good for whatever ails you. I'm not a doomsayer, prepper, or one given to the survivalist mentality, however, I do believe in maintaining a robust inventory of on hand Community Coffee. Nothing dramatic. Just a couple of cases to tide me over. It's at this point that I usually say I am kidding, but, there's nothing to kid about when it comes to my Community. Well, maybe, there's something to kid about, but, not about having it ready and available for use. That's not to say there are not plenty of coffee jokes out there. ~ The not so bright young lady went to her eye doctor and told him that every time she drinks her coffee her eye starts hurting. He told her that she should try removing the stirrer before she drinks. ~ The only time a lawyer will make coffee is when they have sufficient grounds. ~ After two cups I realize that my life really is based on a true story. ~ My coffee habit is an act of mercy on any and all I come in contact with. ~ Most of these have a ring of truth, at least for those of us who love our coffee.

I need to do a word search on my accumulated blogs and find out the most used words. I know coffee will make the list, but, hopefully, there are many others used that carry much greater importance. Words like God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, the Bible, family, grace, and those that pertain to eternal life in heaven along with the power to live out a productive life in our sojourn here. One pastor presented his view as to the most important word in the Bible. After naming all the recognizable ones that any of us might think to be the most important, he gave his rationale for the word, 'with'. Here's a quote from his article, "God has made the first move. He has extended His hand in peace and said to us: 'I love you and I want to be with you, won't you come join me?' It's up to us to accept that open invitation." Pastor Chris Kirwin went on to show the use of the word 'with' in many verses, like its crucial use in the Gospel of John, Chapter 1, Verse 1, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." There was much more to his analysis. I'm not saying he is correct in his choice, however, I thought it was interesting, therefore, I chose to share it. I'm very glad that He created us to have fellowship with Him. What say you? Until next time, may the good Lord up above bless your little pea picking hearts. Amen. ....More later.
