When we got the sad news yesterday of Nelson Mandela's passing our hearts were heavy, but the many inspirational quotes he left us with gave us strength. Here are some of our favorites:
“Social equality is the only basis of human happiness.”
“Difficulties break some men but make others.”
“I came to accept that I have no right whatsoever to judge others in terms of my own customs.”
“When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace.”
“When people are determined they can overcome anything.”

Wallengren Chrsitmas Tree Recipe
#1 At the trunk of the tree have them make a fresh cut 2 inches or more to the trunk of the tree. Even if they say it's a fresh cut have them cut it again in front of you!
#2 At home quickly bring a gallon of water to a boil. Add 1/4 cup of Karo syrup amd 1 teaspoon of bleach.
#3 Immediately pour the hot mixture into the tree stand. Keep the kids away and be careful not to burn yourself!
Wait several hours(or overnight) to see if the tree is drinking the mixture. If the tree does not drink it then it is already dead. Return it and get a new one. If the tree takes the mixture it's alive. Check the water level at least every other day. If the water is low repeat steps #2 and #3 and your tree should stay fresh for up to a month!
