THE GINGHAM DRESS

A lady in a faded gingham dress and her husband, dressed in a homespun threadbare suit, stepped off the train in Boston and walked timidly without an appointment into the Harvard University President's outer office.

The secretary could tell in a moment that such backwoods, country hicks had no business at Harvard and probably didn't even deserve to be in Cambridge .

'We'd like to see the president,' the man said softly.

'He'll be busy all day,' the secretary snapped.

'We'll wait,' the lady replied.

For hours the secretary ignored them, hoping that the couple would finally become discouraged and go away.

They didn't, and the secretary grew frustrated and finally decided to disturb the president, even though it was a chore she always regretted.

'Maybe if you see them for a few minutes, they'll leave,' she said to him!

He sighed in exasperation and nodded. Someone of his importance obviously didn't have the time to spend with them, and he detested gingham dresses and homespun suits cluttering up his outer office.

The president, stern faced and with dignity, strutted toward the couple.

The lady told him, 'We had a son who attended Harvard for one year. He loved Harvard. He was happy here. But about a year ago, he was accidentally killed. My husband and I would like to erect a memorial to him,
somewhere on the campus.'

The president wasn't touched. He was shocked.

'Madam,' he said, gruffly, 'we can't put up a statue for every person who attended Harvard and died. If we did, this place would look like a cemetery.'

'Oh, no,' the lady explained quickly. 'We don't want to erect a statue. We thought we would like to give a building to Harvard.'

The president rolled his eyes. He glanced at the gingham dress and homespun suit, then exclaimed, 'A building! Do you have any earthly idea how much a building costs? We have over seven and a half million dollars in the physical buildings here at Harvard.'

For a moment the lady was silent. The president was pleased. Maybe he could get rid of them now. The lady turned to her husband and said quietly, 'Is that all it cost to start a university? Why don't we just start our own? '

Her husband nodded. The president's face wilted in confusion and bewilderment.

Mr. and Mrs. Leland Stanford got up and walked away, traveling to Palo Alto, California where they established the university that bears their name, Stanford University, a memorial to a son that Harvard no longer cared about.

You can easily judge the character of others by how they treat those who they think can do nothing for them. ----- A TRUE STORY by Malcolm Forbes

MoneySaverTip34: Cleaning Products
I don't buy them any more, except spot cleaner for the carpet and toilet cleaner. Many years ago I bought something called "Star Cloths" from either HSN or QVC (during a brief time we had cable). They are FANTASTIC and though mine aren't anywhere near worn out, I have often searched for them so I could buy more - for back up. Sadly I haven't found them. They are so amazing you don't need any cleaning products at all and they do the jobs perfectly and easily with just water. Think - NO CHEMICALS! Obviously when germs are an issue I use bleach. It's pennies per gallon and is still the industry standard for killing germs. They are an absolute dream come true on glass!

These amazing cloths are soft and comfortable to use - even dust with them! Just throw them in the wash and dryer. The only requirement is not to use fabric softener with them, but I no longer use that either. Newer dryers have special sensors to know when the laundry is dry. If you use dryer fabric softener sheets, they coat that sensor and it quits working properly. You can use liquid softener in the washer, but that's a hassel. That's when I tried using nothing at all, when we had to get a new dryer. I saw no difference, so, I save the money and there are no extra chemicals on our clothes to irritate skin!

The total cost was I think about $15 for 5 (?) - now I'm saving what I'd normally spend on all those cleaning products - and fabric softener and NO CHEMICALS! And how is this inspirational? We are to be good stewards of all God gives us! This is not only saving money, but recycling! Praise the Lord in ALL THINGS! If you'd like more of these, let me know and have a super day!

Today I'm giving you a big doodle (over 9") that I've spent the day making. I got the idea from the way another designer had laid out the elements of her kit in the preview. Hope you can use it!
