Good Morning Nanty Glo!
               Friday, November 16 2001  


I expected that hunting would be a popular topic here and it proved true. The surprise is that my declining to be a hunter was not unanimously booed down. Besides the response you've seen already posted to the list by George and Nora Dilling, I received the following. Sallie Covolo wrote about her husband Dominic.

Dominic's dad was also a hunter. Dominic did not have the heart to kill animals and when he was young he ordered a bring 'em back alive trap through the mail. When it came, he took it into the woods. It was sort of a cage. He kept entrapping the neighbor's cats. While we were living in San Jose, he got another one of the traps, just for the fun of it. He thought he would catch a raccoon or something. Heck no, he caught a skunk. The end of the hunting experience.

Cindy Divido wrote from Atlanta and enclosed the following classic fall photo.

Hunting was something that we were certainly raised with, living in the hills of PA. My husband, Brett Divido, is still an avid hunter. Our son Blake has hunted since he was 5 with his daddy. Here is a picture from opening season this year. Blake (15) always gets his buck....showing up his dad lately. Hope all is well with you. Thanks again for all you do for the Nanty Glo page.

Thanks to all who wrote. The topic is not closed if anyone else wants to chime in. But tomorrow and Sunday David Caldwell will be here, and Judy Rose is back on Monday with our second "Where Are They Now?" See you on Tuesday.

The case for chocolate - II

Diet tip: Eating a chocolate bar before each meal will take the edge off your appetite, and you'll eat less.

If calories are an issue, store your chocolate on top of the fridge. Calories are afraid of heights, and will jump out of the chocolate to protect themselves.

Advent thought of the day

The self-sins are self-righteousness, self-pity, self-confidence, self-sufficiency, self-admiration, self-love and a host of others like them. They dwell too deep within us and are too much a part of our natures to come to our attention till the light of God is focused upon them.... Self is the opaque veil that hides the face of God from us. It can be removed only in spiritual experience, never by mere instruction. We may as well try to instruct leprosy out of our system. There must be a work of God in destruction before we are free. We must invite the cross to do its deadly work within us. We must bring our self-sins to the cross for judgment.
