Free Hospital Bed

In December, a local resident passed away. As a result, the family has a hospital bed they would like to donate to someone that could use it. If there is anyone out there that would like the hospital bed, please call 517-648-0969, and we will make it happen.

Parting Comments

• Deep Thought of the Week: When care is pressing you down a bit, rest if you must, but don’t you quit!

· Notable Quote: “Sometimes it is the quiet observer who sees the most."-----Kathryn L. Nelson

• That’s Puny Department: Have you heard the latest? It seems that Apple has come out with a new I-Phone for dogs. It has all the features---even collar ID.

• Did You Know Section: A Person Who Became A Word: Etienne De Silhouette (1709 – 1767). In an attempt to restore the postwar French economy, Controller General Silhouette instituted a wave of new taxes---most of which burdened the rich. After eight months, he was forced to resign amid a deteriorating economy. His name soon became associated with cheap and “empty” commodities, such as pocketless trousers and shadow portraits (silhouettes). Drawing silhouettes became the rage in 1759.
