Our Weekly Message for November 15, 2001
it looks like rain has found itself in
almost every region of the country this
past week. Our friends in California have
had little rain since May and got a good
dose the past few days as we visited our
friends with Happy
Feet Boots for a couple of
days. As President Bush and President
Putin are just up the road from us in
Salado at his ranch in Crawford, Texas,

Here is a thought for the day from Jim
"Goals. There's no telling what you

There's no telling what you can do when
you believe in them. And there's no
telling what will happen when you act upon
them." Jim Rohn
If you have not already started a chapter
at your school or in your community, think

Christian Dancers at www.EnCroix.org.

funnies this week that I thought you all

Have a wonderful week, and as always,
please keep in touch!
