One Quiet Moment




In the sky
an infinitude of hope,
a canvas of glory
all possibilities mine.
~Terri Guillemets

Absolutely Priceless!!!



 An Elementary School Teacher had twenty-six students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom the 1st half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb. It's hard to believe these were actually done by first graders.
Their insight may surprise you. While reading, keep in mind that these are first-graders, 6-year-olds, because the last one is a classic!

2. Strike while the bug is close.
3. It's always darkest before Daylight Saving Time.

13.  An idle mind is the best way to relax.
14.  Where there's smoke there's pollution.
15.  Happy the bride who gets all the presents.>
16.  A penny saved is not much.
17. Two's company, three's the Musketeers.
18.  Don't put off till tomorrow what you put on to go to bed.
19.  Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and you have to blow your nose.
 20. There are none so blind as Stevie Wonder.
21.  Children should be seen and not spanked or grounded.
22.  If at first you don't succeed get new batteries.
23. You get out of something only what you see in the picture on the box.
24.  When the blind lead the blind get out of the way.

One Quiet Moment

We are all inventors, each sailing out on a voyage of discovery, guided each by a private chart, of which there is no duplicate. The world is all gates, all opportunities.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Happy Sunday, Some Beauty and Wise Thoughts!

One of life's greatest mysteries is how the boy  who wasn't good enough to marry your daughter can be the father of  the smartest grandchild in the world.  Jewish Proverb  

Imagination is more important than  knowledge.
Sign hanging in Einstein's office
We can't solve problems by using the same kind of  thinking we used when we created them.  Albert  Einstein    
And remember --- You can't control the wind, but  you can adjust your sails.  Yiddish  proverb  Happy Sunday!!

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.
