You have likely noticed that the banner ads and other forms of advertisements on many of the webpages you visit appear to “coincidently” be for many of the same items that you have recently searched for online.

There are few things in life stronger than the love of a mother for her child. In her heart and body are the elements that sustain the young life until it greets the world in birth, and those same elements grow with each gift of a child.

I have a program on my computer that alerts me to special days, birthdays, facts of history, and suggestions for each day. I truly enjoy learning and find something new every single day to add to my storehouse of facts, trivia, fun and serious information.

It is fitting since we are celebrating the Battle of San Jacinto in which Texas won her independence in 1836.
