Good Christians and their web site
Like many seniors who enjoy going out for breakfast, I meet with several fellows at my local neighborhood McDonald's. One particular gentleman I always meet is named Hal. Originally from the coal fields of southern West Virginia, Hal is a model of what it takes to be a good Christian. He is retired from the Department of Defense after 30 years of working as an electrical engineer. During the past year, 2006, in affiliation with a religious group, he spent a week in Marseille, France, to help distribute food and clothing to the impoverished and needy. He has performed this type of service in other parts of the world, mostly at his own expense. Meanwhile, Hal and his wife, Lavera, are planning their fifth trip in 2007 to Kenya, Africa, to assist at a religious mission and help the indigent and poor natives there. The couple especially enjoy travel to this part of the world, which is years behind the rest of the civilized world. Lavera is an accomplished piano teacher and a skilled photographer. Her web site (linked below) displays her great skill at photography which I am sure the viewers will enjoy. Especially, make certain to see the pictures of their dog, Bernie, the Schnauzer.
Home Page Country lottery bonanza
As an aside, a lottery prize of almost seven million dollar awaits unclaimed by some lucky winner who may live in Home Page Country, or it could prove unlucky if the person discarded the ticket. The ticket was purchased at the Ebensburg Giant Eagle, a grocery store I frequent several times when I am back in the area. It was one month ago that the winning number was picked in a Pennsylvania lottery drawing. See
This Day in History

1974: Hank Aaron blasted home run 715, breaking Babe Ruth's record.
A man's car stalled in the middle of a busy street, and the woman behind him honked continuously as he tried to restart it. Finally, the man got out and walked to her car. "I can't seem to get my car started," he said. "If you'll go and start it for me, I'll stay here and lean on your horn."
