First Lady #9


                                                   Anna Tuthill Symmes Harrison

Anna Tuthill Harrison was the wife of President William Henry Harrison and grandmother of President Benjamin Harrison, and was nominally first lady of the United States during her husband's one-month term in 1841, though she never entered the White House due to the fact that he died exactly one month after the inauguration. The couple had been married 45 years when he was elected President and she had borne him five children. At the time she was too ill to travel when her husband set out from Ohio in 1841 for his inauguration, it was a long trip and a difficult one even by steamboat and railroad, with February weather uncertain at best and she at 65 was well acquainted with the rigors of frontier journeys as he was a decorated soldier. So, it was decided that his daughter-in-law would accompany him and serve until May when she planned to make the trip. She was packing when she received word of his death and never went. Accepting grief with admirable dignity, she stayed at her home in North Bend until the house burned in 1858; she lived nearby with her last surviving child, John Scott Harrison, until she died in February 1864 at the age of 88.

Did you know?


It’s impossible to hum while holding your nose

You just tested it, didn’t you? Normally, when you hum, the air is able to escape through your nose to create the sound, and of course, it can’t do that when you’re holding it shut. This is one of the weird facts you can test out for yourself. Go ahead, try it.

Brightspots 2



A little boy was waiting for his mother to come out of the grocery Store. As he waited, he was approached by a man who asked, "Son, can you tell me where the Post Office is?"

The little boy replied, "Sure! Just go straight down this street a couple blocks and turn to your right."

The man thanked the boy kindly and said, "I'm the new pastor in town. I'd like for you to come to church on Sunday. I'll show you how to get to Heaven."

The little boy replied with a chuckle. "Awww, come on...You don't even know the way to the Post Office."



John 14:6. New International Version ... Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. ... No one comes to the Father except through me.

Did you know?

 Baby Flamingo's are not born pink. 

The chicks are fed bright red milk, a sort of crop milk made from either parents’ upper digestive tracts. As the baby flamingos grow, they develop their signature pink feathers, as well as adult bills that can filter mud and silt from their food.
