Intelligent people are always open to new ideas. In fact, they look for them."
Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence ?
Five signers were captured by the British as traitors,
and tortured before they died.
Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.
Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army;
another had two sons captured.
Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or
hardships of the Revolutionary War.
They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes,
and their sacred honor.
What kind of men were they?
Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists.
Eleven were merchants,
nine were farmers and large plantation owners;
men of means, well educated,
but they signed the Declaration of Independence
knowing full well that the penalty would be death if
they were captured.
Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and
trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the
British Navy. He sold his home and properties to
pay his debts, and died in rags.
Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British
that he was forced to move his family almost constantly.
He served in the Congress without pay, and his family
was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him,
and poverty was his reward.
Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer,
Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.
At the battle of Yorktown , Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that
the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson
home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General
George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed,
and Nelson died bankrupt.
Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed.
The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.
John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she was dying.
Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill
were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests
and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his
Thank these patriots. It's not much to ask for the price they paid.
Remember: freedom is never free!
He is also famous for being a trial attorney and presently sits as a mediator and arbitrator.His hobbies include scuba diving, snorkeling, beach exploring, traveling and deer hunting. He has four successful children and six grandchildren but, unfortunately, lost his wife five years ago to a stroke.He is a veteran of the Korean War.
He will be conducting a Book Signing for his Novel based on The Korean War, on July 11, at the Royal Oak Woman's Club. (See the event below and also get more information on the blog by clicking here)

Cocktail Race plans are in their Final stage.
The yachts participating in this race will be assigned a rating either by the DRYA(Detroit Region Yacht-racing Association) or by Commodore Cowles as circumstances dictate.
For those not familiar with Sail Yacht Racing, a rating is a hypothetical figure that translates to a seconds per nautical mile factor. Because the boats participating are of different design with varying sail area their speed abilities are different.The organizers of the race want the crew that performs best to win therefore time handicaps are applied to each yacht. For the most part the PHRF or Performance Handicapping Rating Formula will be used where the competitive performance of yachts throughout the United States are analyzed and a committee assigns ratings to like designs. If a boat does not fit into any of these categories, then a rating is extrapolated from boats similar. Needless to say the ratings are a hot topic.
Commodore Cowles reported that he has 12 entries. The deadline is July 1. There will be a skippers meeting on July 8 at the DYC. The Mayor of Roger City is looking forward to this event and is providing information on Rogers City, ensuring we have space for mooring and our picnic awards ceremony.
The first leg of the race will end at Harbor Beach where the participants will have supper, bed down for the night and be ready start again on Sunday morning. Points will be awarded to yachts according to their corrected time for that day. The lowest corrected time will get 1 point and the second 2 and so on.
The second leg will finish at Harrisville on Sunday and points will be awarded in the same manner.
On Monday the fleet will finish at Preque Isle and on Tuesday at Rogers City where the points for all legs will be totaled and the Yacht with the lowest point total will be named the overall winner.
Tell all of your sailor friends about this event. Pass it on. This is something new .
Skippers, call Bob Cowles (313-822-0996) even if you are just remotely interested. Leave a message with your phone number and/or your email address . Some of the boats registering might need crew. If interested contact Bob Cowles.
He is taking applications and one can get that information by clicking on the Race Registration Documents link. The Word files do not always translate well to the WordPress blogs, so you can also get copies by calling Commodore Bob Cowles at the number above.
I received this email from my friend Sharon and thought it was worth sharing! Feel free to forward uplifting material you would like to share with PJSN subscribers. Of course, we reserve the right to make the final decision on publication.
A GREAT RECIPE
1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is the ultimate anti-depressant.
2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. Talk to God about what is going on in your life.
3. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, 'My purpose is to __________ today. I am thankful for ______________ '.
4. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
5.. Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, wild Alaskan salmon, broccoli, almonds & walnuts.
6. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
7. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
8. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a College kid with a maxed out charge card.
9. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
10. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
11. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
12. You are not so important that you have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
13. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.
14. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
15. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
16. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: 'In five years, will this matter?'
17. Forgive everyone for everything.
18. What other people think of you is none of your business.
19. GOD heals everything - but you have to ask Him.
20. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
21. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch!!!
22. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
23. Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements: I am thankful for __________. Today I accomplished _________.
24. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.
25. When you are feeling down, start listing your many blessings. You'll be smiling before you know it.
A gift opens doors for a man
and brings him before the great."
