A MOTHER’S DAY POEM

POEM BY: CRYSTAL STEWART

My loving Mother

You’ve loved me and took care of me

From the time I was conceived

And you continued to love me

Even into adulthood despite all my faults.

My loving Mother, you’re my personal

Daily angel that the Lord sent me so

You would bring me happiness and encouragement 

Daily and I love you so much for that.

On this Mother’s Day Mother,

I want to tell you how much 

I love you and how grateful I am

You are my Mother and

I want you to know I love you for it too.

 

To All The Mother’s Out There And To Everyone Else, I Want To Wish You A Very Happy Mother’s Day.

ANDREA’S QUESTIONS TO ME

  1. Which Disney or Looney Toons character does your own character relate to? As I thought about this question, I finally decided that I couldn’t think of just one character but my character relates to a combination of characters. I think if we are really honest with ourselves everyone is a combination of characters. 
  2.  Would you like to go back to the 90’s, a time without internet? Actually, I was in college in the 90’s and we had internet at the college. However, I would love to go back to a time without internet. So much simpler. Of course, I’m one of those people who do not own a cell phone only a computer.
  3. Do yo like to cook from scratch?(make your own sauces, own dough from bread/pasta etc.) Cook?(laughing), I don’t cook. I think I cooked twice real meals but otherwise I like making popcorn the best.
  4. What would you do on a first date? I think I would learn as much as I could about my the guy I’m thinking about dating.
  5. Whats’ your favorite way of transportation? Hands Down A Car.
  6. What your favorite emoji? I’m sure there are more emojis out there on cell phones but since I don’t have a phone just a computer, my top 3 favorite emojis are:
  • Cat >”<
  • Graduation Girl 👩‍🎓
  • Santa Clause 🎅

Do’s And Don’ts Of Flashlight Safety

WELCOME

Hello and welcome to WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING). I would like to talk to you about the Do’s And Don’ts Of Flashlight Safety. I can just here what some of you may be thinking and that is What do I need to know about flashlight safety? What you need to know may surprise you.

INTRODUCTION

As I mentioned briefly in the welcome flashlight safety is important. You see growing up as a child my father was a Safety Director. I learned a lot from him and I’m still learning from him. For example, just the other night I learned something about flashlight safety I didn’t know. I’ll get into that later in my post. You guessed it, flashlight safety is more than going to a store, picking out the color of flashlight you want and paying for it. Now on to the DO’s And Don’ts Of Flashlight Safety. I’m going to start with the Don’ts.

FLASHLIGHT DON’TS

  1. Don’t leave batteries in flashlights or anything else when it’s not going to be in use for a while.
  2. Don’t shove your flashlight under your bed or somewhere thinking you’ll be using it sometime soon. Take it from me the likelihood of that happening is slim and none.
  3. Don’t wait to your flashlight goes completely out to replace the batteries.  If the light on your flashlight is getting dim then it’s time to replace the batteries. Remember, you never know when the electric will go out so be prepared.
  4. Don’t wait to your battery gets corrosive to replace batteries. If your batteries are corrosive then it could hurt the workings of the flashlight.
  5. If for some reason your flashlight battery is past being corrosive and if you’re not sure then here is an example that happened to me. The other night I was looking for birthday cards and pictures when I came across a flashlight I had shoved under my bed. Guess what? That flashlight I found was completely ruined because it was past corrosive. In fact, There was a white powder on the book from the flashlight. As soon as I showed it to Dad he told me what the white powder was and to wash my hands immediately. The white powder was battery acid in a powdered form. When you see this white powder, trash your flashlight and wash your hands with soap and water. I’m showing you 3 different to show you what your should and shouldn’t look like. These pictures may look the same but it’s to show you which flashlights are bright, dim and dead.

FLASHLIGHT DO’S

  1. First, after buying a flashlight and of course some backup flashlights too. When you get home with your flashlights first decide if you’re going to use all of them if not then only put batteries in the ones to be used.
  2. Buy a flashlight with a very bright light. Usually the flashlights with other things on it and are made if you’re caught alongside the road will do.
  3. If you are able, try to make sure there is a flashlight in every room if not almost every room.
  4. Do buy a lantern and/or a portable light that can be used when the electric goes out. 

 

These are just a few of the Do’s and Don’ts of Flashlight Safety.
