To read with over 500 pages. Mildred over at Blackberry Lane said she had seen
Maeve Binchy  books at the thrift story. So to day I went and found this book for $2.00's. I needed some picture frames and got four ,three were $ 1.00 each but one was .50 cents.

New Book (American Betrayal)

By Diana West
Man is always looking for a man to believe in, a thing that a man has created.
I have chosen to follow the Creator because:
"This is what the Lord say's he who made the earth, the Lord who formed it and established it- the Lord is his name: "Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know." Jeremiah 33:2-3 NIV

And If you read this book just remember :
(Matt. 6:27; Luke 12:25)
Jesus warned against expending energy on things beyond control or on the future
at the expense of the present.

Animal crackers are not really crackers. They are actually cookies
that were imported to  the United States from England in the late
 Barnum's circus-like boxes were designed with a string handle
 so that they could  be hung on a Christmas tree.

Red Rover, Red Rover

The Red Rover was a steamer bought  by Confederate Navy at the beginning of the Civil War and used as a transport ship. At the Battle of Island #10 in April, 1862, near New Madrid Missouri,it was captured by Union forces. The Union Navy outfitted it as a military hospital ship, something which  had never been done before.
The  ship held operating rooms, amputation rooms, medical supplies, wards and accommodations for the female nurses, some of whom were members of the Catholic order: Sisters of the Holy Cross. African-American women served as paid aides.
On of the modifications allowed the new hospital ship to carry up to 300 tons of ice in its lowest hold, an important commodity for the sick and wounded soldiers it carried.
During the Civil War, the Red Rover made many trips up and down the Mississippi and other rivers, carrying soldiers back and forth to hospitals and treating lesser cases on board. Wherever it went, it was in great need, and it treated soldiers from both sides of the war.
Perhaps because it was called back and forth across the river so often or because it served both sides (Union and Confederate), after the war a popular children's game, previously known as  Gates of the City , was renamed Red Rover. Generations of children have played the game that features the chant "Red Rove, Red Rove, send 'so and so' right over."
Red Rover, the first hospital ship of  the United States Navy, the first navy ship that women served on and the apparent namesake of the popular children's game, was built and launched in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, in 1859.
Today, we encourage our visitors to remember a hospital ship named  Red Rover that reached out with compassion to those in need, regardless of the side on which they served. At the end of  their visit, when guests to our community head home, it is our hope that along with several great memories and a few souvenirs, they also take the idea of compassion to one's fellow man home with them as well.
