I found this graphic two years ago after one of the absolute worst days of my life, and even then, it took me another several months to really understand and appreciate its lesson. I’ve held onto it on my desktop as a reminder that only I am responsible for my reactions to things and my […]

Make the Best of What’s Around

My Facebook Memories feature reminded me that on October 3, 2006, I posted this picture in a blog post and in the “Note” section. The title of the post was, “Don’t Burn the Day, ” and my only comment was, “True story.” I don’t think I could have said it any better nine years ago. […]

March 2013 Photo-a-Day Roundup

I missed 10 days last month and often times caught up late.  It wasn’t that I was so busy in March or wasn’t into it, I just didn’t feel like thinking up pictures for the topics, sometimes, lol.  Anyway, same rules as always apply – click to enlarge or just hover over a thumbnail to […]

We all know that the United States Postal Service is having some financial difficulties thanks to the Technological Revolution of the past 15 years of so.  Starting this summer, they won’t be delivering mail on Saturdays anymore and postage prices keep going up.  I noticed something while I was shopping for some March birthday cards […]
