By hearing him often, I came to distinguish easily between sermons newly compos'd, and those which he had often preach'd in the course of his travels. His delivery of the latter was so improv'd by frequent repetitions that every accent, every emphasis, every modulation of voice, was so perfectly well turn'd and well plac'd, that, without being interested in the subject, one could not help being pleas'd with the discourse; a pleasure of much the same kind with that receiv'd from an excellent piece of musick. This is an advantage itinerant preachers have over those who are stationary, as the latter can not well improve their delivery of a sermon by so many rehearsals.

.....that voted for Barack Obama
....that still would today? I have only met one...and he is just too proud to admit he was wrong. I don't get involved in politics but....I could not pass this up. This is huge....Kennedy's seat goes to a Republican and you can thank Obama for that.
In an epic upset in liberal Massachusetts, Republican Scott Brown rode a wave of voter anger to defeat Democrat Martha Coakley in a U.S. Senate election Tuesday that left President Barack Obama's health care overhaul in doubt and marred the end of his first year in office.
I can not believe I am saying this:
"THANK YOU MR. PRESIDENT"
The reason we got together...3 wonderful ladies and friends.
The Firestorm took this doe in Snowstorm.
Did some hunting with Gabe Norris and learned how to pick the lock on a van with a hot dog roasting fork. Had a great time and appreciated the hospitality he and his wife gave our family.
We had a great time visiting with the Daryl, Marilyn, and Ashley Muir. Since Valerie Rice had never eaten good food like Genreal Tso's Chicken with fried rice, it was a priveledge to get her hooked on Chinese Food at Chef Pengs in Niles Ohio.
Back at the Muir's we were greeted by this scary creature.
