I support the move to the metric system…every inch of the way.
Charlie Brown must be putting some real power on that pitch to get that kind of reaction off the bat.
I must admit; I sometimes long for the old times. I was raised on a large cattle ranch in Oklahoma. Times were simpler and slower. Harder work, mind you, but sometimes the effort on the mind is harder than the effort on the body.
I’m so glad that we have dumpsters in the alley. We take out the trash when ever we want and it doesn’t matter when they pick it up. Where we used to live, across town, they used to pick up once or twice a week. Where we live now, they pick up every week day. I figure there must be someone important on our street.
I’m 63. I got my first computer in ‘84 because I thought it would be a better way to keep track of my finances. I started paying some of my bills online around 2000. I got tired of my bills laying on some neighbor’s kitchen cabinet for a week or two before they put it back in the mail. Now I get all but my city utility bill online. It is easy to save them and they automatically get save by Carbonite away from my site. I pay the bills through my bank online. It takes a matter of minutes to pay them and I check my statements regularly. No problems to date. Come on people. We’re still young. Move into the 21st century.
Of course there will sad moments in your life, but you have the choice how to react to those. At my mother and dad’s funeral; people were crying. But not because of sadness, but because of laughing so hard at the stories that were told. A friend said, " That was the most fun funeral he had ever been to. Did we miss them? Sure. But we chose to celebrate the great times we had with them. And no; I am not saying that the bad things that happen to you are your fault. We are all going to have bad things happen to us. That is just life. But again; we get to choose how we will react to them.
Where I live; rain is seldom a reason to be down. I’ve seen people so glad to have rain that they just stood out in it and soaked it up.
Interesting about the landing. It made me think and in all the flying dreams I’ve had in my life; I don’t remember ever landing.
I learned way back in my early thirties that happiness is a decision. If you decide you are going to be happy; life tends to move in that direction. If you relegate your self to being unhappy; happiness will not overtake you. Your decision to be happy causes your actions to put you in the position to receive better outcomes.
Never liked oatmeal. Like rolled oats though.
