One Quiet Moment

If you can dream it, you can do it.   Walt Disney

A Good Laugh Indeed!

Can't eat pork,
Swine flu...

Can't eat chicken,
Bird flu.

Can't eat Beef,
Mad cow....
Can't eat eggs,
Can't eat fish,
Heavy metal poisons in their waters.
Can't eat fruits and veggies,
Insecticides and herbicides.
I believe that leaves Chocolate and ice cream!!!!!!!!
Remember - - - STRESSED

One Quiet Moment

There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.
        Kahlil Gibran

Just Released!!

The Secret Service issued new rules of conduct for agents Friday.

They can no longer get drunk, procure hookers or go to strip bars.
The rules say that from now on, if agents feel compelled to engage
in such behavior, they can run for public office like everyone else.

Our World!!

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Steve Jobs

There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be
nothing. Aristotle

The best portion of a good man's life is the little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love.
 William Wordsworth

Time for "Our World" again! This is a wonderful way to find the beauty, the fun, the good and even the bad things about Our World and to share them! Hope you will join us!  

Well, actually my post for today is my "new" world in Portland. Things aren't completely finished, but I'm getting there!

One Quiet Moment

Age is no barrier. It's a limitation you put on your mind.

Happy Sunday to All of You!

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.
