"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Happy Thanksgiving from the Double Nickel Farm!

May you have many special memories today with your friends and family.  Five years ago I celebrated my first Thanksgiving without my mother.  Five years later five amazing people have joined the Double Nickel Farm family.  What seems hard to overcome is softened with time, love, and an openness for others.

To my husband, sons, daughters-in-law, daughter, and grandsons~I am ever so thankful for you all.

All the best,
