time to help the neighbor
Posted by jerry from mn at 2015-09-08 19:27:47
In my area when the neighbor gets sick or hurt we help him harvest his crop. In the 30's when the banks foreclosed on the farmers the neighbor's would buy the equipment and give it back to him to keep him farming. It's maybe time to help Lynn Miller what do you think ? We all can't all go help out in sister's but a dollar or two or five from all of us could help a lot what do you all think?

Sounds like a good ideal. I don't subscribe to sfj (I think he is publisher) but I will send him a small donation and when he gets things rolling again, I will subscribe. Can someone give me an address?

Been there and I got the TEE SHIRT. About 7 years ago when I became very sick, my church, along with several other churches in my community, local volunteer fire departments, the Grange, and numerous friends sponsored a very successful benefit on behalf of my family and myself. As well as being successful, it was a very humbling experience.

What got the sfj in financial trouble? Sickness, injury from an accident or another type of a problem?

Thanks for doing this. I'm in.

IIRC SFJ got in trouble by taking on an "investor" that was no more than a criminal. Buy a subscription, that might be the best way to help.
