A note from a friend.

A friend of mine sent me this. It doesn't replace the original 10 but they are good ideas.

NEW COMMANDMANTS                                                                                                                                                      
Someone has written these beautiful words one must read to understand the deep meanings in them.                                                                      
They are like the Ten Commandments to follow in life all the time.                                                                                                    
1.   Prayer is not a "spare wheel" that you pull out when in trouble;                                                                                              
      it is a "steering wheel" that directs us in the right path throughout life.                                                                                   
2.  Do you know why a car's WINDSHIELD is so large & the rear view mirror is so small?                                                                              
     Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. So, look ahead and move on.                                                                                
3.   Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write.                                                                          
4.  All things in life are temporary. If going well enjoy it, they will not last forever.                                                                           
      If going wrong don't worry, they can't last long either.                                                                                                      
5.   Old friends are like Gold! New friends are Diamonds! If you get a Diamond, don't forget the Gold!                                                              
       Because to hold a Diamond, you always need a base of Gold!                                                                                                   
6.   Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says,                                                                             
       "Relax, sweetheart, it's just a bend, not the end!                                                                                                           
7.   When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities;                                                                                                
       when GOD doesn't solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities.                                                                                         
8.   A blind person asked St. Anthony: "Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?"                                                                         
       He replied: "Yes, losing your vision."                                                                                                                       
9.   When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them; and sometimes,                                                                                  
       when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you.                                                                                       
10.   WORRYING does not take away tomorrow's TROUBLES; it takes away today's PEACE.                                                                                  
 If you really enjoy this, PLEASE pass to others. It may brighten someone's day...                                                                                  
 Praying for love and peace to fill the coming NEW Year.                                                                                                            
Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, and leave the rest to God.

Sharpening a Barn Auger

In response to a question of why an auger would only cut 1/4" deep before strippng out the pilot thread. I've taken an auger that was in extremely rough shape and brought it back to usable. Make boring an 1 1/4" hole quick and simple. No cord, no batteries, faster than setting up with power tools, and can work underwater. Well okay you might not want to but it will work!
