news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: 

Pastor Jim Robinson was born in St. Louis, Missouri, on December 26, 1946. He was raised Lutheran and got into the ministry because his uncle was a pastor. His Mom and dad were both in the Navy, he was Army (blended family)

Jim was Pastor of Christ Lutheran Church until his near fatal injury, now he is an Associate Pastor and tends after one of the greatest sinners of all time, Doug Harder. Jim was a disaster response guru for his area and helped a lot with the mess in New Orleans, along with Doug. He still has no memory between Oct and Nov 2007.

Jim has one sister, along with two children and two grandchildren with his wife, Vicki. Parchen claimed credit for arresting Harder the first time, putting him on the road to Deaconship. Doug Harder brought Jim into the club.


Program:   Cliff introduced Ray LeVesgre from Tri-County Health Department. Ray is a registered nurse and has been in the nursing profession since 1965. He was in the Army for 3 years, then Public Health Service which is a uniform service. Now with Tri-County Health Department, Ray came to talk to us about Travel Immunizations and Disease Prevention.

When you travel to another country, you are often at greater risk for certain infectious diseases - even if you are staying in first-class accommodations.

Their International Travel Clinic can help keep your dream vacation from becoming a nightmare by providing the medication and expert travel advice you need. Immunizations can also help reduce your concern about needing health care in a foreign country.
Their staff also provides you with the health and safety information you need for each place you plan to visit. Office visit fees and the price for individual vaccines are very cost-effective. (Price List) Plan ahead, since most vaccines take at least two to four weeks before becoming effective. (International Travel Checklist)

There were two nuns..

One of them was known as Sister Mathematical (SM),

and the other one was known as Sister Logical (SL).

It is getting dark and they are still far away from the convent.

SM: Have you noticed that a man has been following us for the past thirty-e ight and a half minutes? I wonder what he wants.

SL: It's logical. He wants to rape us.

SM: Oh, no! At this rate he will reach us in 15 minutes at the most! What can we do?

SL: The only logical thing to do of course is to walk faster.

SM: It's not working.

SL: Of course it's not working. The man did the only logical thing. He started to walk faster, too.

SM : So, what shall we do? At this! rate he will reach us in one minute.

SL: The only logical thing we can do is split. You go that way and I'll go this way. He cannot follow us both.

So the man decided to follow Sister Logical.

Sister Mathematical arrives at the convent and is worried about what has happened to Sister Logical .

Then Sister Logical arrives.

SM: Sister Logical ! Thank God you are here! Tell me what happened!

SL: The only logical thing happened. The man couldn't follow us both, so he followed me.

SM : Yes, yes! But what happened then?

SL: The only logical thi ng happened. I started to run as fast as I could and he started to run as fast as he could.

SM : And?

SL : The only logical thing happened. He reached me.

SM : Oh, dear! What did you do?

SL : The only logical thing to do. I lifted my dress up.

SM : Oh, Sister! What did the man do?

SL : The only logical thing to do. He pulled down his pants.

SM: Oh, no! What happened then?

SL : Isn't it logical, Sister? A nun with her dress up can run faster than a man with his pants down.

And for those of you who thought it would be dirty,

Say two Hail Marys!
