Well, hello again. William Shakespeare (1514-1616) is considered the world’s most famous dramatist, as well as the best poet who wrote in the English language.
The writer’s play has not been published so many times, nor has his poem been read in so many countries. His works have been translated into more languages than any other book in the world except the Bible. It originated at Stratford-upon-Avon, about 80 miles north of London in England.
He wrote plays for the interests of the audience and the demands of the actors. From A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the character Puck’s line, “Lord, what fools these mortals are,” in Act 3, Scene 2, to the famous words of “The Street” in Act 3, Scene 1, “To be or not to be. To be” Shakespeare popularized continues to capture both young and old alike.

About thanksgiving, our positive word this week, Shakespeare wrote: “Lord, who makes my life sweet, give me a heart full of thanksgiving.”
It’s good to start our day and end our day with thanksgiving for the blessings we’ve received around the community with the almi-fical family and many volunteer friends.
There are so many small things: warm greetings, hugs when most needed, the smell of sausage and egg breakfast cooking on the stove, the daily Citron County Chronicle in my bright-yellow Chronicle newspaper box by the side. road.
Many other grateful thoughts come to the mind of the writer today; for my mental health to share useful and positive thoughts with you. There is another blessing of great importance; the wisdom we have in making the right decision when we plan community projects.
Our little corner of the world in our beloved Citron County is so beautiful and we are so thankful to be here!
