"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

On the Table


I decided today was my take it easy day and so I worked on some projects around the house. This braided rug I am working on is from some polyester fabric that I bought from a thrift store a few months ago. I bought around 40 yards of the fabric for~~drumroll please~~ 80 cents!! The fabric was neat and clean and most likely bought by someone with grand visions of polyester pantsuits and the likes!

For me, I saw potential seasonal curtains as these were large enough to be added to cotton to make sun blocks for summer over the standard curtains. I have the heavy or dual lined curtains over my cute curtains so the farm family can enjoy living in the desert by reducing the amount of heat that is allowed inside!

I have decided that my career until I die will be one of an innovator. I have realized that I have made it my personal challenge to take something and either change it into something different~or tweak it to make it better or more efficient for me. Why not?
