Wishing All of You Very Beautiful and Peaceful and Fun Weekend!!

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today? 

Today is a gift. That's why they call it the present.

Our World!!

Welcome to Our World!! Join us and share your world!!
You can’t be suspicious of a tree, or accuse a bird or a squirrel of subversion or challenge the ideology of a violet. ~Hal Borland, Sundial of the Seasons, 1964
The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do. ~Galileo Galilei

One Quiet Moment

Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray. ~Lord Byron

Sunday Laugh for the Day!!

A husband and wife are shopping in their local supermarket. 
The husband picks up a case of Budweiser and puts it in their cart. 
"What do you think you're doing?" asks the wife. 
"They're on sale, only $10 for 24 cans" he replies. 
"Put them back, we can't afford them" demands the wife.  They carry on shopping. 
A few aisles farther on, the woman picks up a $20 jar of face cream and puts it in the basket. 
"What do you think you're doing?" asks the husband. 
"It's my face cream.  It makes me look beautiful," replies the wife. 
Her husband retorts: "So does 24 cans of Budweiser and it's half the price." 
That's him in Aisle 5

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.
