    Have you ever had a stain you just can’t get out?  Stains can ruin a favorite garment. They make things feel dirty no matter how much we sanitize them.

    “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.”  Ecc. 3: 1 A Different Track When I was 38 I was still single, never married, and quite satisfied.  But it wasn’t always that way.
