Butterfly Moment


Butterfly Moment
To me this is a summer day moment.

Good day everyone, I hope you have a great weekend!
Quote by~George Washington
It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.

A slender acquaintance with the world must convince every man that actions, not words, are the true criterion of the attachment of friends.

If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.

It is far better to be alone, than to be in bad company.

Tip
Keep a small bottle of baby powder in your beach bag. When you're ready to leave the beach sprinkle yourself and kids with the powder and the sand will slide right off your skin.

Place a dryer sheet in your pocket to keep mosquitoes away.

It's a fact:
850 peanuts are needed to make an 18 oz. jar of peanut butter.
95% of the entire lemon crop produced in the U.S. is from California and Arizona.
A one ounce milk chocolate bar has 6 mg of caffeine.
An average home creates more pollution than does the average car.
