Good Morning!

I Have Been Thinking

One of the first person I met on our trip was Dolly’s uncle. What an inspiration! At 91 he is still alert, spry and living fully every day. He still drives and is very attentive to his wife of 46 years. They were funny to listen to but very, very interesting.

Do you have older friends and family? Have you taken the time to write down some of their stories? I can remember a good many of the things my grandparents told me but so much just gets lost as one grows older. Family history and how your family history fits in with world history is such an important value for your future family. When children ask, “where did I come from?” I believe they are asking for this history. I know my grandchildren love it when I sit down with them with their albums and tell them the stories behind many of the pictures.

Are you doing something to preserve your family history?

Yesterday Computer Song

Do you know the song “Yesterday”?
Then sing along to this computer version.

All those backups seemed a waste of pay.
Now my database has gone away.
Oh I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly, There’s not half the files there used to be,
And there’s a millstone hanging over me.
The system crashed so suddenly.
I pushed something wrong.
What it was I could not say.
Now all my data’s gone and I long for

The need for back-ups seemed so far away.
I knew my data was all here to stay,
Now I believe in yesterday.

Off the Bookshelf:

The Danger of One-Click Shopping

Some e-commerce sites offer one-click shopping to make it even easier for you to buy. To take advantage of one-click shopping, you enter your name, credit card number, billing address, and most frequent shipping address and have the Web site save that information for you on its server. Then, when you’re ready to buy, you just click once — all your personal information is automatically entered into your order. The problem with this strategy, of course, is that if you order something from a Web site using one-click shopping and then walk away from your computer without logging off, anyone can buy anything they want at the site — in your name and billed to your credit card. This statement is also true if you use one-click shopping at a public terminal and then forget to log off before walking away.

Good Morning!
I Have Been Thinking

Never underestimate the power of a woman! Ever heard that one before? I can tell you there was nothing that Dolly won’t attempt to do with that 40 foot motor home. There were several times during our trip that I just closed my eyes or shook my head in surprise.

If you have never been to Seattle, let me tell you that city is all hills and very narrow streets. The traffic is horrendous in my opinion and it never stops. The city itself is quite beautiful with hanging gardens on the overpasses and flowers in roundabouts in the neighborhoods to control speed. Dolly would take that motor home and make a U turn in the roundabouts that even some people in SUVs were having difficulty with.

You really can do anything you believe you can and Dolly proved that to me without a doubt!


Ice Breakers

a) For those with no children – this is totally
b) For those who already have children past this age,
this is hilarious.
c) For those who have children this age, this is not
d) For those who have children nearing this age, this
is a warning.
e) For those who have not yet had children, this is
birth control.

Things I’ve learned from my Boys (honest and not

1.) A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a
2000 sq.ft. house 4 inches deep.

2.) If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run
over them with Roller blades, they can ignite.

3.) A 3-year old Boy’s voice is louder than 200 adults
in a crowded restaurant.

4.) If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the
motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound Boy
wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is
strong enough, however, if tied to a paint can, to
spread paint on all four walls of a 20×20 ft. room.

5.) You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling
fan is on. When using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have
to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit.
A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way.

6.) The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn’t
stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.

7.) When you hear the toilet flush and the words “uh
oh”, it’s already too late.

8.) Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots
of it.

9.) A six-year old Boy can start a fire with a flint
rock even though a 36-year old man says they can only
do it in the movies.

10.) Certain Legos will pass through the digestive
tract of a 4-year old Boy.

11.) Play dough and microwave should not be used in the
same sentence.

12.) Super glue is forever.

13.) No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming
pool you still can’t walk on water.

14.) Pool filters do not like Jell-O.

15.) VCRs do not eject “PB & J” sandwiches even though
TV commercials show they do.

16.) Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.

17.) Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when

18.) You probably DO NOT want to know what that odor is.

19.) Always look in the oven before you turn it on;
plastic toys do not like ovens.

20.) The fire department in La Mesa, CA has a 5-minute
response time.

21.) The spin cycle on the washing machine does not
make earthworms dizzy.

22.) It will, however, make cats dizzy.

23.) Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.

24.) 80% of Men who read this will try mixing the
Clorox and brake fluid.

25.) Women will pass this on to almost all of their
friends, with or without kids.

Good Morning!
I Have Been Thinking

We defiantly had a “test” on attitude. One of the things we wanted to do on our trip west was to drive through Yellowstone. We had mapped out the trip using the straightest routes possible. In Wyoming we decided to go through Yellowstone on our way to Seattle instead of on the way back. Then we saw a sign that said, “the quickest, safest most scenic route to Yellowstone.” So we headed out on this unmapped road. About 5 miles into the road we found it was scenic. We saw antelope, buffalo and beautiful rolling mountains all around us.

Then it happened, there was a sign that said “construction ahead” Beyond that sign was one that said “pavement ends.” Not only was there no redirect, but just an abrupt ending of the pavement. Not only was there no pavement, but mud for only the length of one city block it was mud. At the far end there was a semi with a “wide load” stuck in the mud, behind it a pick up and two cars. Dolly attempted to back up the motor home but the more she tried the deeper we went into the mud.

Than God for cell phones, but mine wouldn’t work. Her’s for emergency only did get through to 911. A state trooper showed up about 20 minutes later. His first question was, “how in the world did you get here?”

A tow truck was called to get us out, but he too got stuck. The construction supr was called to the scene. It took a bob cat to first get the tow truck out of the mud, then to pull us out.

We laughed, sand songs, made coffee then 2 hours and 20 minutes later we were on our way down the road with the promise that there was no more construction ahead. The decision that it was an adventure made it so. One man was arrested for fighting with the construction supr and the tow driver slid off into the ditch for trying to do something he was ill equipped to handle. Then to top things off, we learned that Yellowstone is still closed for the season. We laughed and got back on the mapped out road heading to Seattle.

After tucking in their three year old Sammy, his parents heard sobbing coming from his room. They rushed back in to find he’s swallowed a penny.

In an attempt to calm him, his father palmed a penny from his pocket and pretended to pull it from Sammy’s ear.

The tike was delighted. He snatched it from his dad’s hand an swallowed it, then happily demanded, “Do it again!”

I haven’t posted an “off the bookshelf” post in a while but found a new Dummies book that is well worth a look at.

Blogging with Transparency

Transparency is held in high regard by bloggers. That means not only correcting mistakes but acknowledging them and, ideally, making the correction in a way that reveals a before-and-after trail. You leave yourself open to criticism if you receive a comment pointing out a mistake, and then erase the mistake with no acknowledgment. And if you also fail to respond to the commenter, look out.

So what’s the best way to recover from a mistake?

· Correct it quickly.
· Leave a trail.
Two methods exist for publicly and transparently correcting mistakes in posted entries.
· Use the strikethrough. That’s a simple HTML tag that some blog programs give you one-click formatting for, otherwise you can hand code the strikethrough with the tags and , respectively. Good blogging protocol would be striking through the mistake and typing the correction immediately afterward.
· Correct the mistake and write out an explanation for your changed entry. It’s perfectly fine to avoid strikethroughs if you divulge the error and simply correct it.

Good Morning!

I Have Been Thinking

You all know that as part of my trip I went back to Denver to get all my belongings out of storage. What you probably don’t know is this has been a goal or target on my annual plan for three years now. I knew a) that I wanted to go make sure the packing was overseen by me personally and b) that if I am truly to remain here in WV that the opportunity to do it would just “fall out of the sky!” Well, both things happened, I went back to Denver to oversee the process, but more important the opportunity literally fell out of the sky. A friend a recent friend at that called me one day and said that she wanted to go to Seattle to see and aging aunt. Her husband didn’t want to go and she wanted a traveling companion; would I like to go along. She said then that she knew I still had all my things in storage and we could stop by to pick it all up.

Every day for the last three years I have read this goal on my Action Plan and every day, I had no idea how I was going to get this accomplished. It isn’t always important to know just how something is to get done, only that no matter what it will get done!

Haircuts: The Difference Between Men and Women

Women’s version:

Woman 2: Oh! You got a haircut! That’s so cute!

Woman 1: Do you think so? I wasn’t sure when she gave me
the mirror. I mean, you don’t think it’s too fluffy looking?

Woman 2: Oh no! No, it’s perfect. I’d love to get my hair cut
like that, but I think my face is too wide. I’m pretty much stuck
with this stuff, I’m afraid.

Woman 1: Are you serious? I think your face is adorable. And you
could easily get one of those layer cuts–that would look so cute I
think. I was actually going to do that except that I was afraid it would
accent my long neck.

Woman 2: Oh–that’s funny! I would love to have your neck! Anything
to take attention away from this two-by-four I have for a shoulder line.

Woman 1: Are you kidding? I know girls that would love to have your
shoulders. Everything drapes so well on you. I mean, look at my
arms–see how short they are? If I had your shoulders I could get
clothes to fit me so much easier.

Daily Tip

“Decide not to surrender” that is such a profound statement so easily said, but not so easily done. Do not give up. Sometimes, at least I know I ask myself why do I work so hard? Why do I do what I do? Is all of this really worth it? Am I really going to make back all of the time and investment into producing a new product or even in mentoring that one person that zapps all of my energies.

But then that one person does one little thing that changes everything. It sometimes does not seem like a lot and sometimes it isn’t, but that person has made a decision not to give up. To do the action one more time. That is the time that I know it is all worth it.

I do what I do because I am compelled to help just one person to do something he was not able to do before. It is not a multitude. It is just one person at a time. A very good friend, Zig Ziglar said once, “If you help enough people get what they want, then you certainly will get what you want.” Try it, it is quite fulfilling.
