Here you will always find the American flag

waving and the American eagle flying.


I left the light on in case 

you arrived after dark. 

Come join in for some 

time to relax.

Let me get you a cup of coffee, it

won't take long, I'll be quick!


Flowers are those little colorful beacons of the sun from 

which we get sunshine when dark, somber 

skies blanket our thoughts.

Ever wonder why Dawn Dish washing Liquid is the wildlife cleaner of

choice after an oil spill? According to the International Bird Rescue

 Research Center, Dawn effectively removes grease but does not cause

 harm to the skin of the birds. It’s also biodegradable and contains no



According to, Dawn dish washing liquid makes great

 homemade bubbles. Here is the Giant Bubble Recipe used in bubble

 makers at many children’s museums: 1/2 cup Ultra Dawn 1/2 gallon

 warm water 1 tablespoon glycerin (available at any drug store) OR White

 Karo syrup works too! Stir gently. Skim the foam off the top of the

 solution (too much foam breaks down the bubbles). Dip bubble wand and

 get ready for some good, clean fun!


Kids get into the darnedest things! Like Vaseline and baby oil rubbed into

 their hair! Dawn is mild enough to use on their hair and strong enough to

 remove the most stubborn grease.


Once a month use original Dawn as you would shampoo. It will remove

 excess oil from your hair and scalp and strip away any build-up of styling

 products without any damage. Perform this once a month and you won’t

 have to buy expensive salon products that do the same thing.


Soak fingers in full-strength blue Dawn. It makes the cuticles soft and

easy to work with. And it removes the natural oil from the fingernails,

 which allows the polish to adhere very well.

would throw a couple ideas out there.

My husband and I now take part in the volunteer program

called 'Community Watch.' We are seen, and we observe,

and report any crime, assist with traffic control, will

do lock-outs and participate in many community festivals

and activities. It is our way of helping to keep the community safe.
