Vital Signs Ministries’ “Sweet Treat” Outreach

Yes, the quarantines are still in place and thus keeping us from presenting our popular “When Swing Was King” shows in 12 senior care facilities every month. In fact, there is no end in sight to this “great hunkering down” as it concerns nursing homes and other senior living facilities. Our response to this sad…

Here’ s the Latest (That’s #17) in our “Anti-Boredom” Packets

I know Father’s Day is behind us but sparked by our conversations and prayers about our fathers last weekend, Claire and I thought we’d share a couple of quick stories before we get to the quiz questions and quotations in this latest “Anti-Boredom” Packet.  My “Dad story” for today concerns a really nifty lesson he…

Have You Thanked a Cop Lately?

This morning we sent out a few letters to the law enforcement agencies in our area. That included the Omaha Police Department, the State Patrol, Douglas County Sheriffs Department, and a couple of others near us. We suggest you do the same. Perhaps get your kids and grandkids involved…maybe your church, Sunday School class, or…

The Panther Patrol’s Last Mission

As those of you following our ministry in creating “Anti-Boredom” packets for distribution in senior centers and nursing homes know, we have recently been including personal notes, encouragements, photos, and personal stories in the opening letter. Below is the letter that went out today to 12 different facilities (hundreds of seniors being residents there) along…

Recalling “Back in the Day” Days

# 15 in our series of “Anti-Boredom” packets has been sent to the 12 senior living and senior care facilities where (in the pre-quarantine era) we showed our “When Swing Was King” shows every month. And all 15 are available to anyone through this link on our soon-to-be-revitalized website. But here, to spark the nostalgia in you…

Calling All Creative Kids!

Because of the quite legitimate concerns over the spread of the China virus in senior centers, our “When Swing Was King” shows remain grounded. Indeed, we have not been allowed into any of the 12 facilities on our regular monthly schedule for the last 3 months. Now June is closed too and the rest of…

A Letter to the President

I’m wrote this quick letter to the U.S. President early this morning over a coffee at Paradise cafe. Claire has typed it up nicely and it’s already on its way. However, I’m posting it as an “open letter” in hopes that it might motivate you to follow with a letter of your own.What do you…

A Trashy Distraction Results in a Near Miss

This morning I pulled out of the driveway and started through the pre-dawn darkness on my way to the coffee shop.  But just a block down the street I noticed a very ugly and annoying sight.  It was a “gross gathering” of 15, maybe 20 trash bags piled up at the curb. In a few…
