A farmer went to buy a pickup truck that he saw advertised for a certain price. After telling the salesman which truck he wanted, they sat down to do the paperwork. Finally the salesman handed the farmer the bill, "Wait a minute," the farmer exclaimed," This isn't the price I saw in the paper!" "Well," replied the salesman, "there are a few extras such as power brakes, power windows, special tires etc. that is why the price is higher." The farmer needed the truck badly, so he paid the price and went home.
A few months later, the salesman called up the farmer and said, "My son is in 4-H and he needs a cow for a project. Do you have any for sale?" "Yes, I have a few cows, and I will sell them for $500.00 apiece. Come and look at them and take your pick." Answered the Farmer. The salesman said he and his son would be right out.
After spending a few hours in the field checking out all the farmer's cows, the two decided on one and the salesman proceeded to write out a check for $500.00. Now, wait a minute, said the farmer, "that's not the final price of the cow. You're getting extras with it and you have to pay for that too." "What extras?" asked the salesman.
Sunshine Country, is a story about a young boy, who when he was very young, was found abandoned on a mountainside. Raised in the care of strangers, not knowing a thing about his real parents, he finds peace and security in the Lord Jesus. This heart-touching story has been popular for almost a century, because of it's sweet and simple presentation of the gospel. The story is founded on actual facts, and those who may wish to locate the territory covered in the events will find it without difficulty in the mountainous region and winding valley watered by the River Wag. I have enjoyed this book, which is a true story, ever since I was little. I highly recommend it!
About the author: Miss Cristina Roy, is in charge of an orphanage in Czechoslovakia, whose origin was largely due to inspiration received from the Orphan Home of Bristol, founded by George Mueller. It was for the benefit of this home of hers that the story was originally published in the Slovak language. The interest it created was sufficient to cause its being translated into German, French and Spanish and then, from the Spanish version into English.

Shaping the rolls
A family decided to leave the crowded city and head for the wide open spaces. They bought a ranch out West, where they intended to raise cattle. A month later some friends visited the ranch and asked if they had picked out a name for the place. "Well," said the rancher, "I wanted to name it the Bar-J and my wife wanted to call it the Rocking-K, but one of my sons liked Flying-W and the other preferred the Lazy-Y. So in the end we compromised and called the place the Bar-J/Rocking-K/Flying-W/Lazy-Y." "Wow!" said the visitor impressed, "But where are all your cattle?" "Well," the rancher replied sadly, "None of them survived the branding."
Have you ever had a wool sweater that shrank? Well, I made a mistake and put my wool sweater in the regular wash, and as you can guess when it came out it had shrunk two or three sizes. I didn't think there was any hope and was going to give it away when I found the below solution. It worked really well and now my sweater is the correct size once again. :) I hope this is helpful!
Without rinsing the sweater, take it out of the soapy water and roll it in a towel to remove as much moisture as possible.
Lay the garment out on some towels in a cool place. Stretch the garment out to its original dimensions pulling it into the size and shape you want. Fasten the sweater to the towel using pins, being careful not to snag the sweater. (As shown) The absence of heat from the drying process allows the wool fibres to set in place without locking together and shrinking the garment again.
Return to the sweater every several hours, re-stretching and re-pinning it as necessary, until the sweater is dry.
You will have a good as brand new, fully functional sweater again! :)
