    Kenyan runner Abel Mutai was a few meters from the finish line, but got confused by the signals and stopped, thinking he had finished the race.
    The Spanish runner, Ivan Fernandez, was right behind him and, realizing what was happening in front of him, began shouting for the Kenyan to keep running.
    Motai did not know Spanish and did not understand.
    Fernandez pushed Mutai to victory.
    One reporter asked Evan, "Why did you do this?" Evan replied, "My dream is that one day we can have the kind of community life that pushes ourselves and others to win as well."
    "But why did you let the Kenyan win?" the reporter insisted. Evan replied, "I didn't let him win, he would win. It was his race."
    The reporter insisted and asked again: "But you could have won!"
    Evan looked at him and replied, "But what is the merit of my victory? What is the honor of this medal? What will my mother think?"
    Values are passed on from generation to generation.
    What values do we teach our children and to what extent do they inspire others to earn them?
    Most of us take advantage of people's weaknesses rather than helping to strengthen them.

    Looking good.
    Thanks. Trying to leave the further area to the north alone. ( area behind the pile,) Shot all 3 of my deer in there. Didn't want them thinking they weren't safe in there. Lol. Going to get my DR trimmer out and cut some feeder trails up from the swamp for next year. Build a Buck highway!
    Very glad I got this quad pod. Tku!! I never would have gotten one had I been on my plot to the left. Green patch left side of pic.

    After realizing that poor women were using the flour sacks to make clothing for their children some flour mills started using flowered fabric for their sacks, 1939.
    Used to put plates in the sacks of oatmeal too. I can remember being at the corner store excited cause they were opening a new box of gum ( double bubble?) and i got the free glass that was inside. This was after picking up empty bottles for the deposit on the way there. Jeez I'm freaking old...
