All the news I wish to print

There are all kinds of stories out there. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry. Some will make you shrug, some will make you scream. Read any daily paper or listen to any newscast and your emotions can go from happy to sad to disbelief to fear to incredulity to horror to anger in very short order.
As we go along, there will be stories, as Paul Harvey used to say, to "wash your ears out with." There will be others that will make you feel like you need to be deloused simply by virtue of have in heard or read them. Some posts will be religious, some secular and for some I expect will defy easy classification in either category. I hope you will join me in this journey and pleas feel free to comment along the way.
For my part I pledge not to remove any posts unless they are vulgar, libelous, threatening or otherwise in violation of the standards of civil discussion. I will not remove any post simply because I disagree with it but I will reserve the right to respond to any challenges that come my way.
God bless you and welome to my blog.

...and no, this is not about the election. This is far more serious and certain to have a greater impact of people like myself. Are you ready? The Girl Scouts are introducing a new cookie. And just in case you are a hermit and do not know any the article includes a link to looking up a nearby seller. How cool is that?

othing warms my heart more than seeing that colorful Girl Scout cookie order form being passed around the office.

Last year I pounced on my co-worker who I suspected had a school-aged daughter just about the right age. Of course, I wanted to help make her a star in her troop, as well as get my hands on the cookies that only the Girl Scouts can do. I ordered three boxes of my favorite (yes, Thin Mints) with every intention of sharing them with my husband, only to eat every last one very quietly at my desk.

So I couldn't be more overjoyed to hear that the Girl Scouts are introducing Savannah Smiles, a lemon cookie, to mark its 100th anniversary. It's described as a dense, crunchy and shortbread-like cookie with a light lemon flavor with a sugar dusting.
