1984 Adrian Rogers Quote Worth Reposting -- posted by Mom

“Friend, you cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom.  And what one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government can’t give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody. And when half of the people get the idea they don’t have to work because the other half’s going to take care of them, and when the other half get the idea it does no good to work because somebody’s going to get what I work for. That, dear friend, is about the end of any nation.”

Waiting on June -- posted by Richard

This is Holly Williams.  She is the daughter of Hank Williams Jr. and the granddaughter of Hank Williams, who was a famous country singer-songwriter.  Her father is a famous singer too.

Sometimes my mother gets on a roll studying strange things.  She's not a big fan of most country music, but some of it she loves.  She was learning about the history of the kind of country music she doesn't like and she found this song that she does like!  It is a ballad.  Even though Mrs. Williams is actually singing it, it is really written as though her grandfather is singing about her grandmother.

I really love Mrs. Williams's voice.  It is both smooth and raspy.

I also love this song. I love it so much I wish I had written it for my wife.

Public Enemies -- posted by John, George, and Richard

The movie Public Enemies became an interest when we realized Melvin Purvis lived in the same neighborhood as our great-grandfather, George W. Waring.

To this day, Purvis holds the record for capturing more public enemies than any FBI agent.
