Page 09 Joe had asked Bob to help him out with the deck after work, so Bob just went straight over to Joe's place. When they got to the door, Joe went straight to his wife, gave her a hug and told her how beautiful she was and how much he had missed her at work. When it was time for supper, he complimented his wife on her cooking, kissed her and told her how much he loved her. Once they were working on the deck, Bob told Joe that he was surprised that he fussed so much over his wife. Joe said that he'd started this about six months ago, it had revived their marriage, and things couldn't be better. Bob thought he'd give it a go. When he got home, he gave his wife a massive hug, kissed her and told her that he loved her. His wife burst into tears. Bob was confused and asked why she was crying. She said, "This is the worst day of my life. First, little Billy fell off his bike and twisted his ankle. Then, the washing machine broke and flooded the basement. And now, you come home drunk!"

We will begin offering wisdom from nutritionist Don Ringgold. As warriors in the struggle for improving the quality of life of our families and communities, we sometimes tend to neglect our own health. Don Ringgold will help us attain and maintain better health for ourselves and families. Good health to you! “In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility -- I welcome it”. John F. Kennedy “We each hold a piece to the puzzle.” – Dr. John Elliott Churchville “Communicate… Cooperate… Collaborate” FOR OUR CHILDREN “It is easier to build children than it is to repair men.”…Frederick Douglass Cap4Kids Hint of the Week There are many families in Philly looking for safe, affordable homes or are trying to stay in their present home under the fear of foreclosure and delinquency.

This initiative will directly address the major barriers that many in our communities face for in-home broadband adoption: affordability and lack of digital literacy. In today’s world, it is important for everyone to be digitally literate. Broadband adoption is vital for our communities because it helps improve our children’s education, our local economy, and the ability for members of our communities to find jobs and benefit from opportunities available online. Comcast Internet Essentials will provide eligible families with: -- Affordable home Internet service ($9.95 per month) -- A low-cost computer ($149.99 plus taxes) -- Access to free internet training – online, in print and in classroom (at established community training sites) Internet Essentials will be available everywhere that Comcast offers its high-speed Internet service. Students in more than 4,000 school districts in 39 states and the District of Columbia will be able to participate. Comcast will accept new Internet Essentials participants for at least three years, through the end of the 2013-14 school year. Any household that qualifies during this three-year period will remain eligible for Internet Essentials, provided the household still qualifies for the program, until that child graduates from high school.
