For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Yesterday I went to court with my daughter - again. Her wonderful ex husband (teehee) was charged with child abandonment - child support. Now, if my daughter refuses to let him see my grandson, she'd be in huge trouble - yesterday, if you know what I mean.

Do you know what happens in the state of GA to men who don't pay child support for six months? They get ordered to court, they don't show out, and a warrant is put out. Now they will try to serve him and he won't open the door - so basically NOTHING happens. Plus his brother in law happens to be a judge in the same court. . . Now no one would admit this - but who wouldn't want a judge for a brother in law?

And why can't child visitation be connected to child support?

Well, I'm going to purposely put this worry on my worry tree and forget about it. I have the best gift of all - my daughter and my grandson! God is good!

Something to make you think:


?? THE YEAR 1906?? This will boggle your mind, I know it did mine!

The year is 1906. One hundred years ago. What a difference a century makes! Here are some statistics for the Year 1906 :

The average life expectancy was 47 years.

Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub.


Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone.


There were only 8,000 cars and only 144 miles of paved roads.


The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.


The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower !


The average wage in was 22 cents per hour.


The average worker made between $200 and $400 per year .


A competent accountant could expect to earn $2000 per year, a dentist $2,500 per year, a veterinarian between $1,500 and $4,000 per year, and a mechanical engineer about $5,000 per year.


More than 95 percent of all births took place at HOME .


Ninety percent of all doctors had NO COLLEGE EDUCATION! Instead, they attended so-called medical schools, many of which were condemned in the press AND the government as "substandard."


Sugar cost four cents a pound. Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen. Coffee was fifteen cents a pound.

Most women only washed their hair once a month, and used borax or egg yolks for shampoo.


Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from entering into their country for any reason.


Five leading causes of death were:

1. Pneumonia and influenza

2. Tuberculosis

3. Diarrhea

4. Heart disease

5. Stroke


The American flag had 45 stars.


The population of Las Vegas , Nevada , was only 30!!!!


Crossword puzzles, canned beer, and ice tea hadn't been invented yet.


There was no Mother's Day or Father's Day.

Two out of every 10 adults couldn't read or write.


Only 6 percent of all Americans had graduated from high school.


Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the counter at the local corner drugstores. Back then pharmacists said, "Heroin clears the complexion, gives buoyancy to the mind, regulates the stomach and bowels, and is, in fact, a perfect guardian of health." ( Shocking? DUH! )


Eighteen percent of households had at least one full-time servant or domestic help.


There were about 230 reported murders in the ENTIRE U.S.A. !


Now I forwarded this from someone else without typing it myself, and sent it to you and others all over the United States, & Canada possibly the world, in a matter of seconds! Try to imagine what it may be like in another 100 years.


Love,Chatty
