Two things about Lincoln: 1. He wasn't against slavery. He just didn't want it to spread North. Two slaves were employed by Lincoln. 2. He suggested that they be taken to Central America. (Feb 16, 2009 | post #1)
"Those who are talking about cutting massive amounts of money out of this bill are also cutting massive amounts of jobs," he (Durbin) told reporters, warning that spending too little now could mean spending much more later. "If we're going to toss a teacup of water on this fire today, we'll be back with firetrucks in months to come," said Durbin, who vowed to support "compromise that's reasonable and that brings in votes too pass the package." - Our fine Senator from Illinois.

I've always contended that one's personality is shaped by one's genetics and/or one's environment. One has to feel sorry for Britney. She has become mentally ill by making her living off of attention. Too much of anything is not good! Even $$$! (Jan 6, 2008 | post #2)

Prayer for Strength and Wisdom Grant me the strength from day to day To bear what burdens come my way. Grant me throughout this bright New Year More to endure and less to fear. Help me live that I may be From spite and petty malice free. Let me not bitterly complain When cherished hopes of mine prove vain, Or spoil with deeds of hate and rage Some fair tomorrow's spotless page. Lord, as the days shall come and go In courage let me stronger grow. ... Lord, as the New Year dawns today Help me to put my faults away. Let me be big in little things; Grant me the joy which friendship brings. Keep me from selfishness and spite; Let me be wise in what is right. A happy New Year! Grant that I May bring no tear to any eye. When this New Year in time shall end Let it be said I've played the friend, Have lived and loved and labored here, And made of it a happy year. --Edgar A.

Not much activity since your post, Robert. I just joined the Forum a few days ago. Posted some 'discussion topics' but no comments as yet. I don't even know if I'm replying to your post correctly. Maybe a news release to the local media about the Forum would help. (Dec 28, 2007 | post #8)
I don't see much activity on this Board. Give me a question about anything and I'll answer it. Guaranteed! Let the show begin. (Don't ya just hate proverbs?) HANK (Dec 26, 2007 | post #1)
It's easy to criticise other people thoughtlessly for their shortcomings, and equally easy to find fault in their work or in situations that are not to your liking. It is far more difficult to be a builder of people and to create works of art, useful products, or profitable businesses. Make sure you are a builder, not a destroyer of people and things. When you criticise the actions or work of others-your children, your employees, or others for whom you are responsible - make sure your criticisms are positive and directed at the act, or the opportunity for improvement, not the individual. You should treat people like you treat your health -- give or take an unfortunate or two who doesn't give a damn! (Dec 24, 2007 | post #1)
... if you do, try this: Through continued communication, many misunderstandings can be avoided as family members learn to express more accurately what is meant and to understand more fully what others are saying. Remember, it is difficult to read someone else's mind. Family members need to hear about the thoughts, feelings, and expectations of each other. Assumptions can create misinformation and result in more conflicts to be resolved now and later. Learning to identify, accept, and understand feelings can be difficult to accomplish. Each person in the family is unique. Their characteristics have been influenced by a combination of inherited traits and personal experiences. Everyone experiences a range of emotions from love, to fear, to anger, but different people can have different ways of expressing their feelings. For everyone though, the goal is to express feelings in a positive way. Usually people communicate in the way they were taught. But remember that learning to communicate effectively is an ongoing process for both children and adults. HANK (Dec 21, 2007 | post #1)

1. You might wish to consider changing the name of our downtown from district to a more comfortable name. A district is usually known as a region or locality marked by a distinguishing feature. Except for Washington Park, I can't think of any. 2. In order to jump-start busines DOWNTOWN, we need a Block & Kuhl, a Halbach- Schroeder or a Sanger-Harris. Maine Street needs to be paved from the bridge to 12th, marked and beautified. Firt impressions mean alot when you enter a community. 3. I don't understand WHY my good friend, Ted Kemner, doesn't give his OK to proceed with the Newcomb complex. Ted and I were Phi Delts at the U. of Illinois and we've been very good friends ever since.

There are two words that, when spoken, have the most unfathomable power to completely change your life. Two words which, when they pass your lips, will be the cause of bringing absolute joy and happiness to you. Two words that will create miracles in your life. Two words that will wipe out negativity. Two words that will bring you abundance in all things. Two words which, when uttered and sincerely felt, will summon all the forces and vibrations in the Universe to move all things for you. The only thing standing between you, happiness, and the life of your dreams, are two words... THANK YOU From me to you at Christmas. Hank Hokamp (Dec 21, 2007 | post #1)
