Also Eleanora Carson of Oakdale was the first woman to serve on the county board.

Chilled wine on the go. Need a glass of cold wine immediately? Toss a few frozen grapes in the glass. Few minutes later your chilled wine is ready to serve. (Grape idea, but who keeps them frozen)?

Although the tongue weighs very little few people are able to hold it.

Ida and David both wanted their sons to graduate from college. They knew their boys would have to pay their own way since David never made more than $150.00 a month. Still they encouraged their sons to achieve all they could. Arthur however, went directly from high school to a job. Edgar began studying law. When Dwight graduated, he didn’t have a goal in mind, so he and Ed made a pact. Dwight would work two years while Ed studies, sending Ed as much as he could, and then they would reverse the arrangement. While working Dwight found an opportunity that appealed to im more than college- West Point. Both Ida and David were crushed by Dwights decision. Ida was convinced that soldiering was wicked. Still all she ever said to him was “It’s your choice, David also remained silent, allowing his adult son full freedom to forge his own adult future”. Yes, Ida and David wisely held their tongues- but they never withheld their applause, especially on the day their son, General Dwight Eisenhower, became President of the United States of America. Refraining from giving advice may actually turn out to be the best gift you may ever give a person.
