Treasures in Maiden Rock, Wisconsin

The Smiling Pelican Bakery is run by an Artisan Baker. All of her baked goods are made from top quality ingredients. I love her banana cream pie it is made with real whipping cream on top of the pie. I love everything that I have ever tried at the Smiling Pelican Bakery. Her Ginger lavender cookies are out of this World. She has a very large selection of baked goods to choose from. There are many kinds of  cookies, cheesecakes, quiches, pies , scones, breads, soups, panna cotta, cakes, bars and more to choose from. I have traveled to many countries in the World and nothing compares in quality and taste to Sandra’s top quality baked goods. You can eat inside of the bakery or outside on the porch or eat by her beautiful flower garden. It is a very scenic drive to get to the Smiling Pelican Bakery and a wonderful treat is here for you upon your arrival in Maiden Rock.


I like the Cultural Cloth Store in Maiden Rock. She sells items that are made by women in foreign countries. I purchased a beautiful rug that was made in Guatemala by women. By buying the items in Cultural Cloth you also help out the women that made the actual item that you purchased. I also purchased a necklace that was made out of a bone it is a gorgeous piece of handmade jewelry that I will always treasure and feel good about buying because I helped out a woman in need in a foreign country.

I like Basil’s antiques and unique items that he has for sale. I have purchased many items at Basil’s over the years. I bought a music box, cross, belt, bowl, and many unique and interesting items. There are several other lovely stores in Maiden Rock. A wonderful drive with lots of treasures to choose from upon your arrival.

True Wealth

Ecclesiastes   5 : 12 – 13

The sleep of a laboring man is sweet, wheter he eat little or much : but the abundance of the rich will not suffer him to sleep.

There is a sore evil which I have seen under he sun, namely, riches kept for the owners thereof to their hurt.

The true wealth of a man is what he has left behind when he dies. A wealthy man will have helped as many people as possible in his lifetime. He should be a giving and caring and compassionate man.  A truly wealthy man will have an abundance of friends and family members that he respects and cares for and they care for him also.


A wealthy man will have an excellent relationship with God and he will do his absolute best to follow The Ten Commandments each and everyday of his life. He will remember the Golden Rule – Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You. He will remember the Sabbath Day and live in a Christian manner each and everyday of the week. He will be a good steward of the land, be good to all of Gods creation and give freely.

True Wealth is not about money. Friends and Family are the True Wealth of any man. Without friends or family you are the poorest man in the World. You need love, joy, hope, peace and caring people in your life to be content and truly happy in life. Money will not buy you happiness. Sometimes the truly rich are most unhappiest people.

A truly wealthy man will have people at his funeral that will say he sure helped a lot of people out in his lifetime. He was a wonderful caring and compassionate person. This is what a truly wealthy man will have left behind when he dies.

Strive to be a truly wealthy man in your lifetime.

What Gifts To Buy Your Cat For Christmas

Cats like an extra warm area to sleep. A nice heated cat bed would be the perfect gift for any cat. My cats like to sleep on a big fluffy towel in a box that is easy for them to get in and out of. My cats also enjoy a a hammock cat bed and windowsill heated cat beds.

Cats will be delighted if they get new catnip toys for Christmas presents. Cats love to play with balls that they bat around with their paws. A talking bird cat toy will delight your cat for hours as he pounces on it and it chirps like a live bird would. Cats like to play with sponges and empty toilet paper rolls also. Toy mice are an absolute must for Christmas presents in my house as my cats love to toss them up in the air and pounce on them.   Cats love tuna canned in water and a variety of cat treats for Christmas.


New cat dishes and water bowls and litter boxes are healthier for your cat. Old dishes that are all scratched up can harbor a lot of germs in the cavities of the scratches that you can never get 100 % clean and the same goes for old litter boxes.

Get all of your cats shots up to date and have your vet give your cat a complete physical for a Christmas present. A gift of good health is the best gift you can possibly give your cat. You and your cat will have many Christmases to share together over the years. Have your cats teeth cleaned. Dirty or bad teeth can lead to a lot of health issues.

Spend part of Christmas day playing with your cat. Cats love to play with string toys that have a fish or bird at the end of the string. Your cat will bat away at the fish or bird at the end of the string for along time.


I hope you and your cat have many healthy and happy Christmases to come.

My Former Doctor Told Me He Was Overwhelmed

2  Timothy    4: 5

But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

marblehead photo

I don’t know about you but I do not want to go to a Doctor that feels he is overwhelmed. I want my Doctor to be on top of all of my health issues and listen to all of my health concerns and problems and address my health issues quickly  and efficiently. If your Doctor falls short of a correct diagnosis for you it may be a matter of life or death for you.

I went to the ER several times with health problems and he thought all of my problems were just in my head. My trip to the ER did not help me out whatsoever.

If you have an illness that your Doctor seems overwhelmed with go to as many Doctor’s as it takes to get the right diagnosis and treatment for your illness. Always remember do not let your Doctor play with your life expectancy. Keep going to Doctors until you feel satisfied that the Doctor you picked can understand and treat your illness correctly. Pick a Doctor that has read up on your illness and understands your illness in every manner possible for your optimal health.

I am very lucky to have found a Doctor that is very knowledgeable and caring and concerned in treating me and caring for me correctly. He even calls me in the evening to talk to me about my health and how I am coming along with my health concerns. My Doctor is proactive and very knowledgeable in his field of medicine.

My local Doctor has read up on my illness and understands what treatment is necessary for my optimal health.

Do not keep a Doctor that just wants to get unto his next patient and that hardly gives you the time of day when you try to talk to him about your health problems. You just have one life to live so live your life with a Doctor that genuinely cares for you and your health or your life span may be shortened considerably. I wish all of you the best of health possible.

A Love For Cats

Humans have had an infatuation with cats from the beginning of time. The ancient Egyptians worshiped their Siamese cats. They mummified their cats and had them buried with them. Cats heads have the same eye placement , etc. as human babies do. Our cats weigh about what a young baby would weigh.

Cats are very helpful at removing rodents from our buildings and grain. They have helped control the plague by eating and killing rodents. Cats have saved farmers a lot of money by killing the rats and mice that eat the grain on their farm. Before we had cats on our farm rats were eating the corn out of the old corn crib. Once we had cats on our farm the rat population disappeared completely.

Our black cats have not always had a fair rap. They were associated with witch craft years ago and bad luck. My black cats have always given me joy and happiness.

I find black cats to be no different than any other color of cat in the feline world.

We love watching our feline friends at play. Having a cat can lower our blood pressure and help us to be more relaxed in general. Holding our cats and having them purr away is very comforting. It is nice to cuddle up next to your cat in the night and hearing them purr until you fall into a restful sleep.

Cats have alerted their owners of a fire in the night or a gas leak that has saved their owners life. My black cat Sebastian let me know that a man was walking down my road at 9PM. He looked out of the window and made a horrible growling sound. I pulled down my window shade for the rest of the evening.

Our cats are  wonderful companions in our lives. Our cats do so very much for us each and everyday. I truly appreciate all of my fine and loving felines that I have and have had in my life.

2   Timothy     2: 14

Of these things put them in remembrance , charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.

If your perception is off you feel very uncomfortable. I just got a new pair of glasses and my perception is off as far as judging the distance between steps. My optometrist said it would take awhile for me to get familiar with my perception while I am wearing my new glasses.

A times all of us get our perception out of kilter now and then. We do not think about a situation before we react to it. Never speak or act out on a situation until you have thought it over for sometime. Sometimes we only hear what we want to hear and it throws off the entire perception of the whole conversation.

Perception can be in the eye of the beholder , where one person sees a shack the other person can see a mansion. Perception is based on your age , experiences in life , your values , your inner core and your relationship with God.

If you do not have an excellent relationship with God your perception in regards to everyone and everything in your life worth pursuing  will be completely off. God puts your inner core or your being back into its proper perspective quickly so you can lead a good and productive life.

Our perception of people can be way off. We do not know what people have been through in their lives. All of us want the same thing in life to be accepted by other people for what we are and how we are. As people we come in all races, nationalities , religions , sizes , backgrounds and values.

We have to have the proper perception with God to understand and relate to all of the different people that we will meet in our lifetime. God please let us be more understanding with people each and everyday of our lives.
