It’s amazing how much you can hear when no one is saying anything. - Elaine St. James

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
A poor man who lived in the country broke his leg in an accident...
That meant he was laid up for a long while, unable to work. His family was large and needed help.
Someone got up a prayer meeting at the church to pray for this family. While the people were praying and asking God to help the family, there was a loud knock on the church door. Someone tiptoed to the door, opened it, and there stood a young farm boy who said, "My dad could not attend the prayer meeting tonight, so he just sent his prayers in a wagon."
And there was the wagon loaded with meat, potatoes, apples, and other things from the farm.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
(08-30-06) A US news reporter uncovered a marijuana plantation - outside the front door of a police station.
Janna Goerdt, of the Duluth News Tribune, found 12 plants growing outside West Duluth police substation in Minnesota.
She heard a rival news team talking about "something interesting" in front of the police station and decided to check it out.
Goerdt took a walk around the building and found the marijuana plants. She plucked one of the leaves and brought it back to the newspaper.
"I needed some evidence," she said. "I didn't know if anyone would believe me. I didn't think it was a big deal. I just thought it was rather amusing."
Duluth City gardener Tom Kasper was given the leaf for inspection and confirmed that it came from a marijuana plant.
West Duluth police Lt John Beyer pointed out that he, his police officers and the public use the backdoor entrance to the police station. The front door was usually locked and not used.
"The only thing I can say is somebody has a sense of humor," Beyer said. "Now they'll read about it in the paper and say: "Yeah, that was me".

Singer John Charles Thomas, at age sixty-six wrote to syndicated columnist Abigail Van Buren: “I am presently completing the second year of a three-year survey on the hospitality or lack of it in churches. To date, of the 195 churches I have visited, I was spoken to in only one by someone other than an official greeter -- and that was to ask me to move my feet.”
