“God is Love. His Love is unconditional. True love does not cause pain or sadness. It has no price. It does not require gifts. You do not lose Love. It does not go away. It is with you always. Love like God the year around.” Tere LaGra
Stepping Out With Stephanie
by Stephanie Ward February 11, 2010
I have done nothing for the past two weeks but go to movies and out to restaurants all the while packing on the pounds. But all that is going to change as I am eagerly looking into the new raw diet. I have been a vegetarian for years, but eating an increased amount of processed food has created unmanageable food cravings. Our food supply has been tainted by the huge food processing companies like Monsanto. I read the other day that Monsanto's corn causes organ damage in cows. I don't know if that is the same corn we eat, but I wouldn't be surprised. I have not been the same since I saw the movie Food Inc. Therefore, I am on a quest to find a better way to eat and live and I am hopeful to find one that won't cause me to gain a pound after each meal! I have a friend who is convinced that processed food causes her migraines, so hopefully I can help her out, too! Check out my adventure with raw food on Facebook or follow me on Twitter. I usually post tips daily on those sites. I will let you know in two weeks if I have lost weight or feel any better. Eat to live not live to eat!

Queen Of The Rednecks
by Mary Speed-Kent Febuary 2, 2010
I have entitled myself, "Queen of the Rednecks", for many reasons. One of them is on page left- those are Catfish heads hanging from a fence. A fence that is on the front portion of my parent's property where you can see them on display when you pull into the circle driveway. I don't know why they are there... it's not to scare other Catfish away since we do not live on a lake and I doubt we'll find any strolling about the front yard. This is just one of the many odd things that go on around here. A phrase that I often say is "I wish life had background music." In this instance, I think "Dueling Banjos" would be appropriate.
I'm the daughter of a famous Bass fishing outfitter and retired pro-fisherman. No one outside of the fishing world would know that because why would you watch the Outdoor Channel or read the sports section of the paper if you don't like outdoor sports? My great uncles, Jester and Cotton Layfield, invented "The Big Joe Spinner" which is endorsed by my cousin John Bradshaw Layfield of the WWE.
I actually live across the street from my late uncle's widow. She's 96 years old and still works in her flower beds with a cigarette hanging out of her mouth. Every time I have gone over there I leave with something- a picture, candy dish, etc. My late cousin, Joe Layfield, used to ride around town with a boat motor attached to his tail gate smoking a cigarette with his oxygen mask on and the tank sitting next to him on the bench seat. Think about that for a minute... My family is only one part of the equation even though my cousin, Vikki, did marry a man who eventually was put on death row- you now know him as the first man to be scanned layer by layer into a computer for Cancer research after his execution.
