You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism." ~Erma Bombeck

This Week's Now Famous Person
Elona is now famous for appearing in the "Got Mustard Campaign" She is also famous for being an early taste tester for Charley's BallPark Mustard" She also wrote this testomonial.
Am I a fan of Charley's Ballpark Mustard?
Most assuredly! - In fact, I had the rare privilege of being in
the test kitchen on more than one occasion to personally sample
this wonderful product in the making.
I'm anxious to see - or should I say taste - what's next.
So when you see or contact Elona be sure to tell her you saw her in the Peggy Jo Studio Newsletter. You can see the other hundreds of people by clicking on the underlined words above.
You can browse rather than wait to see a particular photo with the "digital mustard" on the upper lip. One can replace the phrase in the section box with a first name and deleting any other text in the box. Then only the slides that contain that name are displayed.
If you had your photo taken and can't find it in the slide show please send us an email. If you would like to send a photo to be included, send it to email@example.com. We will supply the "digital mustard".

Please ask your readers to continue praying for my mother who may have to go into a nursing home.
Hi Peggy Jo,
I saw the note from "Ren" and I can certainly relate to her situation.
Though my mother did not go blind from a heart attack, she did have a series of strokes and the last one caused her to go blind. It was extremely devastating for her.
I did have my mother in my home and was working at the time, so I had to depend on health aides during the day. Needless to say, that did not work out and, not having any family, I was forced to put her in a nursing home. This lady is so very, very lucky she has a child able to be her caregiver full time and is willing to move in to take care of her. I worked during the day and spent the evenings/weekends at the nursing home. I saw first hand the uncaring, selfishness of the other resident's children in the nursing home and it made me furious.
As I mentioned to you some time ago, I'm on the east side - if this person is also, I'd be more than happy to help out - even if to give Ren a break now and then. I know I was certainly exhausted most of the time - I had NO one that ever offered to help. My mother had other serious health issues as well, The blindness more or less "put the icing on the cake".
There are now new technologies to help those regain sight - perhaps Ren could look into this. I'm not sure if we have it here, but it would be worth it to check out hospitals/doctors out of state - perhaps by the internet.
Again, if I can be of any help, I'd be more than happy to do so.
Hi, Peggy Jo
Thank you again for your strong support of Crawford Armstrong Handicapped Association's 31st Fun Day in the Sun annual picnic that was supposed to happen last Saturday, June 20th.
Unfortunately, we had to cancel our picnic for the physically and mentally challenged people from the Detroit area group homes due to the condition of the grounds at the DYC on short notice.
The intense rains during the night and early morning made the ground very unstable & unsafe. Especially for the guests that are confined to wheelchairs and walkers.
Consequently, it was necessary to cancel everything on Saturday morning for their safety and we donated the food to the Cappuchin Kitchen.
Each year your newsletter brings us many new volunteers and we especially want to apologize to the people that we were unable to contact regarding the short-notice cancellation.
We appreciate everyone's help and understanding and are looking forward to a warm & sunny Fun Day in June 2010.
blessings, Mary Gavin / CAHA Board member
