May 3 Quote of the Day

There is no pleasure in having nothing to do; the fun is having lots to do and not doing it.
Andrew Jackson

Every now and then, it’s important to take some time off. No matter what you do, whether it be the head of a company or the head of a household, there will always be something more that should be done. It’s important to realize that when we take some time to look at the clouds floating above us, we rejuvenate our bodies and minds. In doing so, we are able to face the tasks with renewed energy. Work is easier when the mind has taken the time to unload.

Do not bite at the bait of pleasure, till you know there is no hook beneath it.
Thomas Jefferson

There are a lot of activities in life that look like they will be wonderful. Before you jump in and join the fun, look closely at what is happening. Be sure that what looks good is good. Don’t let yourself get caught by something that could end up being painful.

Family Time

This suggestion came to me through a reader. It was so nice, I thought I would post it for everyone to see.

Board games like Trivial Pursuit and Scrabble can be fun Have a old fashioned games party each person bring a game that doesnt use electricity or batteries and see what happens Children can work in pairs against another pair with winners having most points as a team effort Chess and Checkers are old favorites too Problem with many of the Electronic TV games is that there often is NO human interaction you play against a computer Thats no fun lol And what adults present should strive for is teaching how to be a good loser as well as a winner Winners should be encouraged to shake hands with the loser Some youth sports teams also encourage sportsmanship too

March 11 Daily Quote

Sunday, March 11th, 2012

Everything that is new or uncommon raises a pleasure in the imagination, because it fills the soul with an agreeable surprise, gratifies its curiosity, and gives it an idea of which it was not before possessed.
Joseph Addison

Have you ever stopped to look at an abandoned house? Doesn’t your imagination fill with ideas of what this home was like or what it could be? Sometimes, when you’re on the road, you suddenly come across a magnificent view that is so unexpected it takes your breath away. Or you’re wandering through the mall and pass a toy store. In the window, they have some new little animated toy that was never available when you were young. You get the urge to stop and play. The world is full of new and wonderful experiences that can brighten your life. Take some time today to look around. Find the joy!

Belts and Suspenders?

Monday, July 18th, 2011

Q: I read about an actuary who calculated that the odds of a man’s trousers falling down if he was wearing both a belt and suspenders was about 35,000 to one. What would be the odds of a man’s trousers falling down while wearing only a belt? What about only suspenders?

A: Darned if I know. Does anyone else know? Send me a comment and I’ll post it.
