"And an area on further to left and in the pasture that I will tell you about 

tomorrow...." an area of land in the pasture where the water,  because 

of gravity and too much rain, drained to make a swamp-like area of maybe 

a tenth of a acre. It must have been around Christmas and at the time girl kids

got girl presents and boy kids got boy presents. Aunt Ruth  (Mother's 

younger sister) and her husband, Uncle E C, had 3 girls so they got girl 

presents. Uncle Lester (Mother's baby brother) and his wife, Aunt Phyllis had 2

girls so they got the same. Uncle Orvine (Mother's oldest brother} and his wife,

Aunt Esther had 3 boys so they got boy presents and Father and Mother had 3 

boys and 1 girl, including me who was the oldest of the four. If I remember 

correctly, my sister Nancy who was a toddler, got a girl present and Roland,

my brother in age next to me, and I got brand new cowboy boots for Christmas.

My baby brother, Jerry, got a baby present as well as the other cousins of near 

the same age and were babies.

My cousin, Franklin, who is older than me and the oldest cousin also received 

brand new cowboy boots and maybe my cousin Leroy who was next to his 

brother Franklin in age may have received cowboy boots for Christmas.

Lewis who was the youngest brother of the three may have been a baby at

the time or a beginning toddler at the time and either received a a baby 

or toddler present at Christmas time.

We who had the brand new cowboy boots set out from our grandparents

house walking in the lane and onward into the fields and....

Finger Length Reveals if You're Anxious, Athletic

By Sylvia Booth Hubbard   |   Thursday, 13 Oct 2016 

Your fingers reveal more about you than you might think, says a Norwegian 

study, which found that a comparison of your index and ring fingers 

suggest whether you are likely to be anxious or a good athlete.

Previous studies have shown that the amount of testosterone a fetus is 

exposed to influences their finger length — adults whose index finger is

shorter than their ring finger were exposed to greater amounts of testosterone 

when they were in the womb."

Both women and men with this characteristic are generally better equipped 

to solve mentally demanding 3D rotation tasks as adults. They also tend to 

have better physical and athletic abilities, but are more prone to having 

ADHD and Tourette's syndrome."


I believe that I told you before that I sometimes wish I would have lived 200

years ago (1816). 

No medications for illnesses that maybe don't exist, no drive thru to keep us 

lazy, no motorized vehicles, but going somewhere by horse, buggy or 

walking, no fast food to clog our arteries, few laws to restrict our freedom, no

everyday advice for explaining what type of human you are from above and 

do for yourself and not others to help you.

I know I cannot change my history, but I wish I could because in the end I

envy those people that lived that many years ago.

Senior Staff Writer Ryan Hasman

(ESPN) There is no doubt that Colin Kaeperernick is under investigation by 

the NFL, but the real reason why will surprise you. His size and strength has 

been under speculation for the past few months during the preseason. The NFL 

is now considering banning a nutritional supplement that he has become very 

dependent on. He started telling his close friends and teammates about this 

product that is helping him get ripped and have more testosterone in a matter 

of weeks. This muscle-building supplement stack first caught on in Hollywood 

and recently made headlines a few months ago. Word of these wonder-supplements 

soon got out and their popularity exploded into the mainstream with men 


Colin uses a popular supplement designed to burn fat, pack on muscle, and 

skyrocket energy called Alpha Fuel. It is a common supplement taken by many 

pro athletes and body builders but the NFL considering banning its use for 2 

big reasons:

1. It has been clinically proven to make athletes 150% stronger on average 

and triples stamina making it unfair to players who don't use it.

2. These supplements don't have to be used in conjunction with a gym. Users 

experience massive muscle growth and fat loss without lifting a single weight. 

The NFL considers this to be a "cheat" as it requires hardly any effort on the 

user's part...."

Fox News Poll: Clinton Now Up 7 Points Over Trump

Breaking News at 


I have always had the greatest respect for Michelle Obama. She has on at least

two occasions addressed the public that has influenced the outcome of this

US Presidential election. 

She spoke at the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia and just yesterday at 

a campaign rally for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton Thursday, 

October 13, 2016, in Manchester, New Hampshire. 

She is a better speaker than the two presidential candidates and her husband 

and is concerned about the health of everyone in making good changes to the

food children eat in school and a new food diagram to help everyone in their 

selection of healthy foods.

Maybe it would be possible for her just to change seats with her husband and

become the US's President for the next four years?


I'm trying to catch up with listing the past US Presidents before the election

on November 8. So I'll list two a day for a while and then on election day, 

give or take a day or so, compare the dignity of the office then as compared 

to what it has become today.
