I believe in miracles - 09/28/11 12:26 PM
I believe in miracles... Last week my father-in-law completed or "graduated" from an 18 week treatment program consisting of radiation five days a week and chemo therapy once a week. Earlier this year he had lost a lot of weight and abilities to do simple things such as a crossword. There was a spot of cancer in his brain and in his lung. He was looking very weak and grey and I was very worried about him. I am happy to say that he looks great and feels great! His treatments were in Midland Michigan which was fairly close to home, (9 comments)
Wixom Lake is located primarily in Gladwin County and runs to the South into Midland County. It is fed mainly by the Tittabawasee River and the Tobacco River. There are four bridges that go over the waterways. There is the Dale Rd Bridge which is on the Tobacco River side. There is the M30 Bridge which sort of separates the two sides with Tobacco being the West side and the Tittabawasee on the East side. The Tittabawasee side goes far to the north with the Estey Rd Bridge and the Highwood Rd Bridge as crossings. Approximately 2000 acres of waterway with (1 comments)

She said I could share her blog site and posts with you all...... http://makingmagicinthekitchen.blogspot.com/ Sunday, April 24, 2011 Grillin' Easter Eggs Today I walked out my front door to find my dad in his front yard (directly across from my own front yard). He saw me and instead of waiting to speak to each other face to face, like I assume civilized (boring) people do we shouted across our yards to each other while I walked over. Our conversation had lots to do with where my mom was currently located (4 comments)
This is the view from my favorite park bench. It sits in front of the building where Sylistics and Green Ways are located on M30. I enjoy visiting my daughter at work. She and the business owners next door are cheerful and friendly and can even brighten an already wonderful day! We talk and laugh and look at the clouds and shoot the breeze! so to speak.
Ordered this sign from Jim Todd Signs - Picked it up Monday night and put it up. Went back out after dark with my two daughters .......

What is a birthday - 09/13/11 03:31 PM
What is a birthday? It's the one day of the year - IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU! A birthday is a day or anniversary where a person celebrates his or her date of birth. Birthdays are celebrated in numerous cultures, often with a gift, party or rite of passage. Although the major religions celebrate the birth of their founders (e.g., Buddha's Birthday), Christmas – which is celebrated widely by Christians and non-Christians alike – is the most prominent example. In contrast, certain religious groups, as is the case with Jehovah's Witnesses, express principled opposition to the very idea of celebrating birthdays. Legal (7 comments)
