a "been-there" mom of six offers encouragement
to wives, young mothers, and those not so young,
and simple common-sense approaches to
the "ings" of life:
child-rearing (hints and helps), homemaking (all areas),
cooking (simple, cheap, and do-it-yourself)
making (toys and gifts), preparing (for the unexpected),
maintaining (sanity and peace in this increasingly crazy world) and more---
all aspects of making the most of making do on little---
and having fun in the process.

What If . . . A Message from Paul Harvey

Yesterday,  while I was preparing a simple post on cucumbers, 
a cool refreshing summertime treat --- 

a chilling e-mail arrived in my inbox.

Do you remember the famous ABC radio news commentator Paul Harvey, known for telling us "the rest of the story"? Millions of Americans listened to his programs which were broadcast over 1,200 radio stations nationwide. 

On April 3, 1965 he delivered a sobering message. He updated it occasionally as time went by.  

Paul Harvey passed on in 2009.  Please take 3 minutes  to listen to his  47 year-old message --- observations from then that are stark realities today.
