That's My World!

That's My World is hosted each week by Klaus and the My World team, Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and me. Join us and share your world with others from all over Our World! Just click on the post title, read the rules, sign up and play with us! So! How is your world this week? Have you taken time to see the beauty there? What is it about your world that makes you smile or laugh or feel grateful for? Another wild week weather wise with snow and temps in the teens, lots of wind and gray, angry looking skies. But if you keep looking long enough eventually you will see some of the beauty you thought was lost!
Buy land, they're not making it anymore.
Mark Twain
By trying we can easily endure adversity. Another man's, I mean.
Mark Twain

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.
Mark Twain

Drag your thoughts away from your troubles... by the ears, by the heels, or any other way you can manage it.
Mark Twain

Golf is a good walk spoiled.
Mark Twain

Humor is mankind's greatest blessing.
Mark Twain

It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.
Mark Twain
It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native criminal class except Congress.

The harbor views and sunset are my favorites. Your weather continues to bring great colors!

Enjoy your week, I hope it is not snowing...but stay warm.

I took off the plug-in of my snow in my blog, because my readers say, their computers freeze.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
