weekend ramblings and contest-giveaways

Happy saturday Readers!!!
I hope your christmas shopping is done,if not you shall be dealing with a lot of shopping frenzies everwhere you i try not to have to do that when possible.When it gets crazy,i am ready to runnnnnnnnnnn...
I think i have most all the presents wrapped now,hopefully,and tomorrow i will be cooking for sunday dinner at church.We have our christmas sermon,lunch and present exchange then,i always enjoy christmas there.This year we have 5 kids under 6 that will be having christmas with us so that is great.Yea ,i belong to a small rural church.Most of the families have went on to the local church's in town ,closer to drive.It is a beautiful church and the people are all like family.I grew up in there,and i guess one day i will be laid to rest there if the good lord don't come first.Has 3 large sygamore trees in the back yard and cedars in the drive.Blueberry trees stand at the front doors where kids have eaten off them for generations..The church was funded in 1875 ,i think that is right,and so pretty in white and an old tin roof.The walls and floors are pine,and the pine benches with red velvet seats.It is a pretty place for the lord i hope.
Anyway i do hope you will all be safe this holiday season...

May God Bless Us All..The real meaning of Christmas can be found in the first 6 letters!!!!

Its almost christmas-contest giveaways

Good morning readers!Merry Christmas to your family from me here in Alabama..I was looking over at the old farmers almanac(love it!) and they had some wood ideas for those of us who use wood for heat or partial heating.Most know some of this but it is still very useful info for those maybe who have just begun using wood.I love my fireplace and every one that visits just has to go stand in front of the fire.Kids love to seat themselves a few feet in front of it when in the living room.Why?Not sure but i use to do it feels good i guess.heat security ;)Will be adding a few contest at the bottom during the day as i can,Good luck to all.
Hope your day is going well and your week as well..

Merry Christmas and may God bless us all.

what happened on this day- December 16, 1811?
An earthquake near New Madrid, Missouri, changed the course of the Mississippi River.

For success in making your roast as tender and juicy as possible, remember this:
• Do not salt the exterior flesh of the roast as salt draws the juices to the surface; salt when served.
• Let the roast stand for at least 20 minutes before you carve it to allow flesh to reabsorb the juices.
With the economic and weather forecasts, here are helpful hints on using wood for heat:

* A cord of wood is a pile of logs 4 feet wide by 4 feet high by 8 feet long.

* One cord provides heat equivalent to that produced by burning 200 to 250 gallons of oil.

* To avoid insect pests, never store firewood on the ground touching your house.

* Burn only seasoned wood (seasoned logs seem light in weight and have dark ends with cracks or splits).

* Wood-burning stoves are three times more efficient than standard fireplaces.

* Find out which hardwood will give you the best heat value!

Wood warms you thrice—when you chop it, when you stack it, when you burn it.
you will pay more for these hardwoods, but you will get more heat for your dollar.

* Ash, white
* Beech
* Birch, yellow
* Hickory, shagbark
* Hop hornbeam
* Locust, black
* Maple, sugar
* Oak, red
* Oak, white
