.Old Irish Blessing
May the road rise to meet you;
May the wind be always at your back,
The sun shine warm upon your face,
The rain fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
A CELEBRATION and an HONOR
The Friends of the Oldsmar Public Library is excited about having award-winning author, Robert N. Macomber, visit the Oldsmar Public Library on Sunday, March 20, 2011 from 2-4 p.m.
Bob specializes in maritime subjects and has eight published novels in his Honor series. Honor Bound, his 9th novel, is set in 1888
By the way, Honor Bound is dedicated to For Haiti with Love and Don DeHart.
If you haven’t already met him at our Christmas in August or if you do want to meet him and get a copy of Honor Bound, join us in Oldsmar on March 20th. The library is located at

Sharing a problem and seeking ideas and help. Another of those times when I sooo miss Don.
The largest roofed area is the main part of the headquarters. The smaller roof to the right is a “carport” area and the generator house. The long narrow roof at the top is actually the pavilion down the hill from the headquarters used for storage and also for the Christmas Party—or doctors for medical teams. To the left of the larger roof is the addition that houses on the main floor the clinic, pharmacy and a shower changing area for the staff. The lower flat roof you can see is a patio area above the clinic and the larger flat roof is above the one-room area that Don built for his bedroom/office/quiet place. THAT roof which is 20’ x 26’ is the problem.
Don had been unable to find a water leak so he ended up putting tile up there.. You see there is a short wall that I am told is properly called a parapet wall, it is also tiled. That solved the problem for about 15 years. Now the grout has failed, and water is finding its way once again into areas where it simply isn’t welcome. The ceiling is peeling in the bedroom below…things are a mess and I need input.
I’ve been asking a lot of questions of a lot of people and it is looking like the best solution might be a product called Kool Seal. Then comes the question of whether it will be cost-effective to purchase and ship it down. Anyone have any other ideas for totally stopping this water problem? A metal roof over all of it has been suggested to simply re-direct the water, what say you?
On February 10 Roseline and Presume were on their way back to the FHL headquarters after picking up medical cargo at the airport when, to use Roseline’s words, “A motorcycle came from out of nowhere!”
The driver and passenger were scratched up and the motor cycle hurt a bit—Roseline, Presume and the Daihatsu were fine. Roseline took the driver and passenger to the headquarters where she bandaged their injuries. The passenger’s mother showed up and wanted the girl’s arm x-rayed so they were sent to the hospital with the money for an x-ray—nothing broken. After fixing up the driver and passenger the bike/taxi was repaired and the folks were scheduled to return for bandage changes. God is good and this thankfully had a happy ending.
I told you about this a long time ago and then actually forgot about it myself—but if you use “GoodSearch.com” for your searches rather than Google, they donate to For Haiti with Love (once you designate your charity) every time you search… easy, eh?
With some of our major contributors graduating to Heaven and the economy taking many jobs, January was the first time in years that the contributions fell short of even covering the basic overhead in
I don’t want ideas of things for me to do—I can’t keep up as it is, but if you have ideas where I can just send photos or brochures and you can run with it, that would be great! Tell your friends, ask your relatives, spread the word. How about involving your church? Any amount helps… it all adds up.
