"The positive side of life"


                     





                        Living on Earth is expensive,

                        but it does include a free trip

                        around the sun every year.



                        How long a minute is

                        depends on what side of the

                        bathroom door you're on.



                                                            



                        Birthdays are good for you;

                        the more you have,

                        the longer you live.



                        Happiness comes through doors you

                        didn't even know you left open.



                                                



                        Ever notice that the people who are late

                        are often much jollier

                        than the people who have to wait for them?



                                                                   



                        Most of us go to our grave

                        with our music still inside of us.



                        If Walmart is lowering prices every day,

                        how come nothing is free yet?



                                                                 



                        You may be only one person in the world,

                        but you may also be the world to one person.



                        Some mistakes are too much fun

                        to only make once.



                        Don't cry because it's over;

                        smile because it happened.



                        We could learn a lot from crayons:

                        some are sharp, some are pretty,

                        some are dull, some have weird names,

                        and all are different colors....but

                        they all exist very nicely in the same box.



                        A truly happy person is one who

                        can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

puttin' it

back in."

now and

then to make

         sure it's still there."



          "If you get to thinking you're a person of some influence, try



ordering somebody

         else's dog around."



          "After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he

started roaring. 

         He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him...  The

moral:

When you're

         full of bull, keep your mouth shut."



          "Never kick a cow chip on a hot day."



          "There's two theories to arguing with a woman.  Neither one

works."

          "Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes

from

bad

         judgment."



          "Never miss a good chance to shut up."



          "Always drink upstream from the herd."



          "When you're throwing' your weight around  -   be ready to

have it

thrown around by

         somebody else."



          "There are three kinds of men: 

            1.  The ones that learn by reading.

             2.  The few who learn by observation.

             3.  The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for

themselves."



          "When I die, I want to die like my grandfather who died

peacefully

in his sleep. 

         Not screaming like all the passengers in his car."



          REMEMBER --For every minute you are angry with someone, you

lose 60

seconds of
         happiness that you can never get back.

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE LADIES?


Back in the 50’s and 60’s, most women wore dresses, nylons, some even wore fancy hats. As a result, men opened doors for them, pulled out chairs for them, and by all means walked on the outside of the sidewalk as a protective gesture. Women were gentile, classy, and even somewhat fragile. For the most part, men had and showed great respect for these ladies and would do most anything to please them while they were in his company.



Correct me if I’m wrong, but today’s woman is miles away from that. Today’s woman dresses in torn and dirty jeans, wears a ball cap and drives pick up trucks. She can out cuss any man alive, and some could make a truck driver blush. I’m not saying they are all like that, and I’m not saying they don’t dress up on occasion, but for everyday life, a good majority of them dress and act like men.



Women, for the most part, are addicted if not possessed by the latest style. It wasn’t that many years ago when a woman wouldn’t have been caught dead in a pick up truck. Suddenly, Muffy is driving one and all of a sudden it is the stylish thing to do. I was living in Detroit when this happened and remember reading about the Big Three hiring women to tell them what would make a pick up more compatible to women. The changes were dramatic and the result was a truck that once cost $7,000 escalating to $50, 000.



I know I’ve probably stepped on some toes out there, and quite possibly really don’t know what I’m talking about. If so, let me know. I can take it. I’m old and live in the dark ages, so hit the Comment thingy at the bottom of this blog and let me have it. Is it style to dress and cuss like a man or the way of the future?

Idle Thoughts Of A Retiree's Wandering Mind:

 
I had amnesia once---or twice 
******************** 

I went to San Francisco. I found someone's heart. Now what?

All I ask is a chance to prove that money can't make me happy 
******************** 

If the world were a logical place, men would be the ones who ride horses sidesaddle. 
******************** 

What is a "free" gift? Aren't all gifts free? 
******************** 

They told me I was gullible and I believed them. 
******************** 

Teach a child to be polite and courteous in the home and, when he grows up, 
he'll never be able to merge his car onto the freeway. 
******************** 

Experience is the thing you have left when everything else is gone. 
******************** 

One nice thing about egotists: they don't talk about other people. 
******************** 

My weight is perfect for my height--which varies. 
******************** 

I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure. 
******************** 

How can there be self-help "groups"?

If swimming is so good for your figure, how do you explain whales?

Show me a man with both feet firmly on the ground, and I'll show you a man 
who can't get his pants off.

Is it me --or do buffalo wings taste like chicken?

A Follow up to my last blog, DO YOU BELIEVE OR NOT

I wasn't expecting quite this much activity from my last Blog, DO YOU BELIEVE OR NOT. I received several Comments as well as emails sent to me expressing their opinions whether it be pro God or from a non-believer point of view. Thank God we all live in a free country and can express our opinions. Actually, I shouldn't say that because I'm getting people from all over the world reading these blogs, and I'm not sure what regulations they have on freedom of speech.

The reason I am doing a follow up is that I would really like to hear from the non believers as to how they believe this all started. Actually, in the original blog, that was what I had solicited in the first place and received many opinions but no beliefs as to how universe, earth, life and what not got started. So I'm going to try it again. Give me your views as to how it all began. I'm not trying to prove some point or anything; it's just that I am really interested. Athiests have their own beliefs, so here is a chance to share them.

Just click the word, "COMMENT" at the bottom of this blog and give us your views.

DO YOU BELIEVE OR NOT?


I once read that Alfred Einstein once said that you’d have to be a fool not to believe there was thought that went into all this. Even if you only considered the incredible human body. As sophisticated and high tech as we are, we don’t have a clue as to how such a complicated and intricate device known as the brain was ever invented and then enclosed into every human body ever conceived. If there hadn’t been thought included with the invention of the body, your bones would rub together causing great pain at your joints. Instead, some thought went into it, and what we get is a tiny sac at each joint that generates a fluid that lubricates the joint. That fluid is many times slicker than anything man has ever made. Good grief, our bodies even have a sensor that is of a social nature. It warns us when we need to find a bathroom. Tell me that wasn’t planned to avoid embarrassment. If that sensor hadn’t been implanted in us, we’d be no different than the common farm animal. Ask any doctor if he believes such an incredibly complicated machine was conceived by chance.



When I was young, I believed the human brain was the ultimate thinking machine. There was many things I didn’t understand such as how the universe has no wall out there and yet how could the universe keep expanding. And if it does continually expand, where is it expanding to? (if you’ll pardon the grammatical error.)  It wasn’t until I was much older that it finally occurred to me that the human brain isn’t so hot after all. In fact, I’m quite sure we were given a brain only capable of sustaining our everyday life here on earth. You know what I mean. Our brains are smart enough to remind us to zip up, close your mouth when you belch and so on. There’s no way we will ever understand the universe, how it all came to be and especially the Creator Himself.



Now I’ve tried to be unbiased and as objective as I can be. I only mentioned God once, and I called Him the Creator. So, let’s hear from you. If you agree with me, I’d be most happy to hear from you. If you are an atheist, now is the time to let us know how it all began. I promise I will not make any rebuttals on any comments. It’s free speech time. Just click on the Comments thingy at the bottom of this page. Love to hear from ya.
