The U.S. Army Camel Corps (Will that Be One Hump or Two?)

     Major Henry C. Wayne knew well the colorful history and stellar reputation of the USS Supply--the ship on which his expedition would sail. Purchased in Boston in 1846 by the U.S. Government, the 547 ton Supply served in the Home Squadron during the Mexican-American War. In 1847, she carried William F. Lynch's renowned Dead Sea Expedition to the Holy Lands. In 1849, she transported the United States Consul to Tripoli, returning to America via Brazil.

How to Grow and Harvest Burdock

How to Grow and Harvest Burdock If you are starting or have an existing herb garden chances are you haven’t got burdock or may have not even considered it. You can plant burdock in your garden, it grows easily from seeds planted in spring and then thin seedlings to 6 inches apart. The plant tolerates most soils but prefers moist, rich soil and full sun.

Money Is Not All In Life, God Is All In All!

What place does money have in your life? Does it dictate your peace, joy and how you walk in love? God desires that you prosper but not at the expense of His relationship with you and the work He has for you. Money is not everything; it is God who is all in all.Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share, storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life (1 Timothy 6:17-19, NKJV).People do.

Elections ’16: Crazy Horse for President

“It is a good day to die” might become the battle cry of some American voters in the upcoming presidential campaign. Middle-class Americans have something in common with native indians’ plight of long ago. Crazy Horse might nod in approval. Perhaps in his own vengeful wit, swirling upon the prairie winds calling, ‘What goes around, one day comes back around.’ I was at the Duck Creek Cafe’ the other day and guess who I ran into, Martin Cross, long time governor of our state. In tow was my buddy presidential candidate Miss Josephine Calder visiting the old homestead before off again on the campaign trail. The Cafe’ was full like.

Do You Really Need an Editor for Your Novel or Non-Fiction Book?

You’ve probably read or heard that you should have your manuscript edited. Do you agree or disagree with that statement?I’ll get to the editing part in a moment. There’s something else to cover first. Something you really need to know, especially if you’re a novice author. You see, it’s the best of times and the worst of times for authors, especially first-timers.

It’s the best of times because self-publishing is available for anyone, and, agents...
