The Funny Bone

Once a captain on his ship was disturbed by his assistant telling him, “Sir! Sir! There are 5 enemy ships on the horizon.”

The captain tells the man,” Get my red coat and prepare for battle!”

The assistant runs without question to get the captains red coat and prepares for battle. After their victory, the assistant asks the captain why he wanted his red coat.

The captain tells the assistant “If I was shot you would not be able to tell I’m bleeding and you would keep fighting.”

The assistant thought this was a great idea. The next day the assistant came to the captain, “Sir! Sir! There are twenty enemy ships on the horizon!”

The captain was stunned. He looked at the assistant and told him “Get me my brown pants!”

Wears Valley Ranch

In 1991, Jim & Susan Wood, along with their three children, left their home in Sandy Springs, GA to fulfill a vision that they had been praying about for over twenty years. (We highly suggest clicking here to read how the vision all began. Tissues are recommended!) In the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, Wears Valley Ranch was birthed. Their goal is simple: ‘to promote the spiritual, emotional, intellectual, social and physical development of children in need of a stronger family support system.’ Wears Valley Ranch accomplishes this goal by providing Christian homes, education, and counseling to children rescued from families in crisis. Their school, camps and retreats all reinforce this demonstration of Christ’s love and it’s their desire to ‘see every person inspired to follow Christ, healed from the past, and equipped to reach his or her full potential.’ To learn more of the incredible work being done at Wears Valley Ranch or find ways how you can get involved, visit their website at

The new door configuration is a double panel design in which the top three quarters of the door are glass and the bottom ¼ has a nice decorative wood panel design. The doors are a fiberglass shell for durability, low maintenance, and insulation and a hybrid mahogany top layer for a beautiful wood finish. Read More.

Energy Savings Tip

Newsletter - Quarter 3

How many times a day do you open and close your refrigerator? Depending upon your current model, a new Energy Star refrigerator can save you up to $150 a year.

Tip: One way to test your refrigerator seal is closing a dollar bill in the door. If the dollar bill drops when you close the door, you may want to consider getting the seal fixed or replacing your refrigerator altogether.
