Have you heard about the new usage they’ve found for banana peels?  And, No, there’s nothing slippery about using the peels to make more effetivecoverings.

Most among us are probably aware that Jimmy Carter became our oldest living expresident six years ago.  And would you believe?  He’s very likely going to make it to his 100th birthday on October 1st.  Who knows?  Maybe “Eat more panuts” will become a new health craze.

But the truly amzaonng thing now for JPresident Carter is that he continues to have quality in his life; in otherwords; he’s not just existing; he’s living.

Within a few days there will be a lot of hugely happy people at at the home sites of the teams that win the NCAA Men’s andWomen’s tournaments.  

Austin TX  is the place to be on April On that day, a total solar eclipse will pass almost directly through the city, casting it in complete darkness for minutes as the moon's trajectory crosses the sun's  People are already planning their viewing opportunities to watch the eclipse. Some are also throwing parties and hosting events to commemorate the once-in-a-lifetime event, while others are jostling for the best spots to view it from.

shakira’s “Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran” — her first album in seven years, released on Friday — has all the ingredients to be a downright explosive comeback.

Walt Disney handed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis a political victory Wednesday, agreeing to settle a long-running legal battle over control of the Orlando-area land that’s home to its most important resort.

The company’s truce with the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District, the entity that oversees the resort’s land and infrastructure, gives DeSantis more power and influence over the company’s Florida operations. It also paves the way for Disney to expand its theme parks and resort properties in the state.

I plead with my non- Christian friends here to indulge me for a moment as I refer in closing to one of my all-time favorite hymns: Jesus Is All the World to Me

The hymns closing words never cease to comfort and strengthen me:

When He’s so true to me?
Following Him I know I’m right,
He watches o’er me day and night;
Following Him by day and night,
He’s my Friend.
Jesus is all the world to me,
I want no better Friend;
I trust Him now, I’ll trust Him when
Life’s fleeting days shall end.
Beautiful life with such a Friend,
Beautiful life that has no end;
Eternal life, eternal joy,
He’s my Friend.

Yours too, I believe, though you may know him by another name and with differen descriptions.
