November 1st is National Author's Day

In 1928, Nellie Verne Burt McPherson, president of the Bement, Illinois Women’s Club, had an idea of setting aside a day to celebrate American authors. McPherson was a teacher, and throughout her life, an avid reader. While she was recuperating in the hospital during World War I, she wrote a fan letter to fiction writer, Irving Bacheller. She told him how much she enjoyed reading his story Eben Holden’s Last Day A’ Fishin.
Upon receiving her letter, Bacheller sent her an autographed copy of another story. It was then that McPherson realized she would never be able to thank him adequately for his gift. McPherson decided to show her appreciation by submitting an idea for a National Author’s Day to the General Federation of Women’s Clubs. In May of 1929, the club endorsed a resolution for National Author’s Day to be observed honoring American writers. The United States Department of Commerce recognized this day in 1949.

Introduction of a guy named Matt

Hello everyone. I'm grateful to be invited to the group. I've been passionate about the automobile industry most all of my life. I owned a Auto Wash and Fast Lube biz for several years and had most of the dealership work in our town. There was no real money in it, but we did great work and people found their new dream car. I also do restoration and customization work and in 2005 I bought a Scion XB. Within a matter of months I had one of the best in the south east and was brought in by SE Toyota to tour with my vehicle to dealerships and show the vehicle. I have been a pastor for over 30 years now, entrepreneur and owner of several businesses. I get to be a coach and consultant and help others to overcome life obstacles, achieve their #1 goal and live lives of abundance. I've had some difficult times in my life and I understand how things can be in the hustle and bustle of your lives in the auto industry especially in times like this. If anyone ever needs to chat, I'm just a text away!
