Knocking out the lights in New Orleans nearly knocked out the Baltimore Ravens.
However, Baltimore’s Raven caught fire in the postseason and that is why they won it all on Super Bowl Sunday.
Although Baltimore nearly collapsed after a lighting malfunction in the stadium caused delay for 35 minutes. Following the delay, it seemed like Baltimore (14-6) had lost their momentum and composure in the third quarter. Sustaining two drives for two field goals in the fourth quarter really showed their mental toughness, winning 34-31 over San Francisco.
Finally, Paisley gave us a glance backstage. She is here with her loving mother, April.
On Sunday, February 3rd, at the Green Hill Community Center, it was all about a community embracing the needs of a little five year old girl named Paisley Haynes. She is the youngest of three girls. On December 12, 2012, at the Children’s Clinic, Asheville Memorial Hospital, Paisley was diagnosed with leukemia (cancer of the blood cells). She will have to endure at least two and a half years of treatment to become cancer free. It will be a long, hard journey, and medically very expensive.
At the Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington, D. C., one of the permanent inscriptions reads “Our nation honors her sons and daughters who answered the call to defend a country they never knew and people they never met”. Bailey Gillespie spent 1013 days, from November 1950 to September 1953 as a POW in the Korean War. It was a miracle that he survived! Mr. Gillespie landed in Korea on July 10, 1950 and was captured just over four months later.

Do you practice conversation generosity?
Have you ever noticed how some people do all the talking? And that they’re usually the ones who are a little negative?
And how other people are really good listeners? And that they’re more often the ones who when they speak have something positive to say?
I was in a room recently in which a man took all the air out of the room by talking only about himself. I watched while other people tried to be polite and listen, or gently change the subject to include others in the conversation. They changed their body language to move away from the person and some just left the room.

I’m still not sure about this whole global warming thing, but I do know that the winters where I live are not as cold and snowy as they used to be. I can remember the days when you could always count on hunting in the snow on Thanksgiving Day. Now there’s no guarantee that you’ll even have a measurable amount of snow at any time during the winter season. The same goes for February. The last couple of days have warmed up considerably and our good weather folks are predicting temperatures in the 70’s tomorrow. If it’s even close, we’ll think that spring has sprung.
