Love. Hugs. Peace. Especially for young volunteers...



There's nothing I enjoy more than seeing the sweetness as my Daughter grows to be a caring and sharing little girl - even at only 3 years of age. She may be too young to be a Huggable Hero, but she's Mommy's little hero!

We must teach our children to make the world a better place.

Here's a great program to honor young community volunteers, ages 8 - 18. $7,500 scholarship for college + a $2,500 donation to their special cause. CLICK HERE to learn more. Hurry, nomination deadline is February 26, 2010.

Lemon Tree Song - for fun. Anyone remember this?

Lemon Tree
Artist: Peter, Paul & Mary
Composer: unknown
Lyrics-

When I was just a lad of ten, my father said to me
"Come here and take a lesson from the lovely Lemon Tree"
"Don't put your faith in love, my boy" my father said to me
"I fear you'll find that love is like the lovely Lemon Tree"

Lemon Tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
but the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat
Lemon Tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
but the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat

One day beneath the Lemon Tree, my love and I did lie
A girl so sweet that when she smiled the stars rose in the sky
We passed that summer lost in love beneath the lemon tree
the music of her laughter hid my father's words from me

Lemon Tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
but the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat
Lemon Tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
but the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat

One day she left without a word. She took away the sun
And in the dark she left behind, I knew what she had done
She'd left me for another, it's a common tale but true
A sadder man but wiser now I sing these words to you

Lemon Tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
but the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat
Lemon Tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
but the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat
