Martin Luther was born in an earthen floored cottage to poor German peasants on a chilly November eve. As a child, Martin developed a love for music and often went about doing his chores while singing at the top of his voice. He attracted the attention of the neighborhood boys and after teaching them to sing in parts: soprano, tenor, alto, and bass, Martin would lead them to neighboring towns where they would sing at cottage doors in return for bread or a good hot sausage cake.
Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Isaiah 40:3
Many years ago, the author Robert Louis Stevenson was stricken with a fatal illness. He sought rest and quiet in a favorable climate and chose a faraway island in the Pacific Ocean. He soon found conditions to be less than ideal there, for the native chiefs were constantly at war with each other.
There once were two boys who we will call Tom and Tad. They had a grandfather who did his level best to help them prepare for the future. Gramp taught them many things, one of which was to begin early preparing for retirement. He took them to New York City, toured the stock market on Wall Street and taught them about such things as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. At seven years old the boys could recite the formula for becoming a millionaire.

Symbioses is a word that describes the living together of two dissimilar organisms often in a mutually beneficial relationship. Thus, the cattle that we see here in Florida have developed a symbiotic relationship with birds that feed on insects, lice, and whatever else infests their hides. The cowbirds help to free the cattle of those irritating pests and in return, the cattle provide food for their ever hungry stomachs.
