Hans Klok & The Divas of Magic - 10 Illusions in 5 Minutes

More than Sears' customer care - support for our military.

Received this email and thought it would be worthy of blogging....
_____________________________________________________________________

It's verified by http://www.snopes.com/politics/military/sears.asp

Also confirmed at: (Same applies to K-Mart which is owned by Sears)
http://www.searsholdings.com/communityrelations/hero/military.htm

I know I needed this reminder since Sears isn't always my first choice. Amazing when you think of how long the war has lasted and they haven't withdrawn from their commitment. Could we each buy at least one thing at Sears this year?

How does Sears treat its employees who are called up for military duty? By law, they are required to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing more. Usually, people take a big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being called up.

Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs, for all called up reservist employees for up to two years.

I submit that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be recognized for its contribution. I suggest we all shop at Sears, and be sure to find a manager to tell them why we are there so the company gets the positive reinforcement it well deserves.

Pass it on.

Decided to check this before I sent it forward. So I sent the following e-mail to the Sears Customer Service Department :

I received this e-mail and I would like to know if it is true. If it is, the Internet may have just become one very good source of advertisement for your company. I know I would go out of my way to buy products from Sears instead of another store for a like item, even if it's cheaper at that store.

This is their answer to my e-mail:

"Dear Customer:
Thank you for contacting Sears.The information is factual. We appreciate your positive feedback.
Sears regards service to our country as one of greatest sacrifices our young men and women can make. We are happy to do our part to lessen the burden they bear at this time.

Bill Thorn

Please pass this on to all your friends. Sears needs to be recognized for this outstanding contribution and we need to show them as Americans, we do appreciate what they are doing for our military!!!

Rachel and the Hired Gun by Elaine Levine

Rachel And The Hired GunRachel And The Hired Gun by Elaine Levine

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Beginning was gripping but somewhere along the way it seemed to drag out. Have to say that Sager was a rugged character, one that I always enjoy. Emotions seemed redundant towards the end. Overall it was a good read.

A Wanted Man by Linda Lael Miller

A Wanted Man (Stone Creek, #2)A Wanted Man by Linda Lael Miller

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This was a very nice read. Smooth, characters well-developed.

All in all, 'A Wanted Man' gave you a real feel like taking a dusty stroll in the ole West while wanting to greet everyone along the way with a 'howdy'. Ms. Millers dialogue between her characters was very fluent and credible, especially between father and son. I loved how Ms. Miller entwined a family, dysfunction at that, and made it work throughout the entire story.

Rowdy Rhodes was a surefooted individual with a gentle, caring nature and that balance is usually hard to weigh. The author created a man who made his mistakes but strove to be a better man not just with himself but through helping others. Lark was sweet and timid, just one would consider a 'prime and proper' lady to be like back in the day. Overall it was a fun read, that left you feeling happier and a little more appreciative of the comforts of home.

If you would like a feel-good read backed by honor, morals and a feel for the ole West, Linda Lael Miller's 'A Wanted Man' is a great choice.

No one can ever replace your unique qualities that you portray as an actor, whether the role is Gabriel or Spartacus. You are full of life, a vibrant spirit that spills onto the screen and flows into our hearts.
