Do you know what happened today in history?  Among a host of things like today was D-Day the storming of the beaches of Normandy there was also another note of trivia.  Today in 1933 the first ever drive in Movie Theater was opened.  It happened in Camden, New Jersey.  This was the brain child of Richard Hollingshead.  He charged a whopping 25 cents per vehicle and another 25 cents per person.  There was a limit of no more than one dollar regardless of the number of people in that vehicle.  BTW the largest drive in Movie Theater was in ...

As all of you are aware I don’t post anything about my local community.  However I saw a stream today while I’m looking at the TV morning news.  I live in Centerton, Arkansas as of October 27, 2014.  I did not believe I until I looked it up on the internet.  It’s true according to realtormag.org Centerton, Arkansas is ranked third in the nation as one of the best suburban places to live.  Being only 4 miles from the home office for WalMart Centerton offers the best of both worlds.  It still has the feel of a small community while being...

  Mansuetude is the word of the day. All of us young, old or somewhere in between has this problem.  I’ll call it a good problem but when you learn the meaning you may call me names.  Anyway I have this problem when I’m around family so I guess now is as good a time as any to give you the meaning of (man’swi tood) which is gentleness; tameness.  So how many people are you gentle to?

  Do you “elucidate” your clients? I sure do and I bet you do to.  The thing is how do you do it?  For me it all depends on the client.  Some need more of this than others and some just want you to get on with it.  So the other question is how you determine which one to use.  OK the meaning of (e loo’se dat’) to make light or clear, to make clear, explain.  What say you?

  I like a big “ambry” it’s just me. I remember my mom’s home had a large one and I enjoyed going in there.  Now these are hard to find.  I sure do miss those days but the memories will last me all my days.  Not much left to say about these so here is the meaning of (am’bre) a cupboard, locker or pantry.  In my mom’s home she had a walk in pantry and it was sooooo big.  Needless to say she had it stocked to the ceiling great memories.
