“To Make A House A Happy Home”. It takes a lot of loving to make a house a happy home. To make a place of comfort out of wood and wire and stone, it takes photographs and souvenirs and knick-knacks on the shelves. Memories of the ones we love and pieces of ourselves. It’s flowers planted by the door, and dinner on the stove, the kind of life lived down to earth, with guidance from above. But, really what it takes most is kindness that is shown by people and the love they spend to make a house a home.-HSR

Thought for the day - if little ears should not hear it, big mouths should not say it.

Another year has gone by so fast and another birthday. Man!! Tisha Brown, Joann Robertson and I all share the 26th of Feb. I’m sure there are more. Zachary Williams will be eight on Feb. 17. So happy birthday.

I did find a raisin pie filling recipe that I may try one of these days if anyone will eat it.

1 1/2 pounds of brown raisins, 3/4 cup white sugar, 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 8 cups of water, 1 ounce of oleo. Mix all ingredients in a large pot. Cook at a boil, stirring occasionally until raisins float. Next, add a little over a 1/4 cup of corn starch for thickening. Add more if needed. Fill a pie crust and save the rest for later. May store in refrigerator for up to a month.
