Armistice Day Friday 11/11/05

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918 the allies signed an armistice with Germany. An article about the details of the Armistice can be found here.

Although President Wilson of the United States was instrumental in the forming of the League of Nations the congress of United States did not agree to join the organization. At that time the two oceans isolated our country from the problems of Europe. The timeline of the League can be found here.

France and England dominated the League and re- aligned the Middle East forming many of the countries that are there now .e.g. Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Saudi Arabia to name a few.

Keep checking the new Somerset Slide Show , Sailing Singles Slide Show , and Peggy Jo's Slide Show photos will be added from time to time.

Back Issues

Past issues of the Peggy Jo studio are here.

"No love of the natural heart is safe unless the human heart has been satisfied by God first"

Oswald Chambers

"A fool gives full vent to anger, but a wise person quietly holds back."

Proverbs 29-11

This newsletter is sent out each Monday morning and covers events of interest to active people no matter what their social status. It attempts to publicize worthwhile events that do not receive adequate media attention.


The Lord is my shepherd: I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul.
He guides me in straight paths for His Name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil For Thou art with me.
Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies.
Thou anointest my head with oil,
My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
And I shall dwell in the House of the Lord forever.

23rd Psalm

  • IN CASE OF EMERGENCY - A sound idea
  • Paramedics will turn to a victim's cell phone for clues to that person's identity. You can make their job much easier with a simple idea that they are trying to get everyone to adopt: ICE.

    ICE stands for In Case of Emergency. If you add an entry in the contacts list in your cell phone under ICE, with the name and phone no. of the person that the emergency services should call on your behalf, you can save them a lot of time and have your loved ones contacted quickly. It only takes a few moments of your time to do.

    Paramedics know what ICE means and they look for it immediately. ICE your cell phone NOW! Please pass this along.

  • Two Cups of Coffee
  • When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 cups of coffee. A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

    The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

    The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous "yes."

    The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

    "Now," said the professor as the laughter subsided, "I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things—God, your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions—and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

    The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car. The sand is everything else—the small stuff." "If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued, "there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you. "Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first—the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."

    One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. "I’m glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend."
