Retirement

***

The trouble with retirement is that you never get a day off.

***

A retired husband is often a wife’s full-time job. ~Ella Harris

 

***

Retired is being twice tired, I’ve thought
First tired of working,
Then tired of not.

***

Retirement: World’s longest coffee break. ~Author Unknown

Retirement has been a discovery of beauty for me.

the tree outside my very own front door. And, the beauty of time itself. ~Hartman Jule

***

Life begins at retirement. ~Author Unknown

***

Retirement can be a great joy if you can figure out how to spend time without spending money. ~Author Unknown

Tooth Of The Day

Calling

112

***

“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.”
Émile Zola

***

An iPod, a phone, an internet mobile communicator…
these are NOT three separate devices!
And we are calling it iPhone!
Today Apple is going to reinvent the phone. And here it is.

***

“The women I know with strong personalities,
the ones who might have become generals or the heads of companies if they were men,
become teachers. Teaching is a calling, too.
And I’ve always thought that teachers in their way are holy–
angels leading their flocks out of the darkness.”
Jeannette Walls, Half Broke Horses

***

I don’t know what my calling is, but I want to be here for a bigger reason.
I strive to be like the greatest people who have ever lived.

 

***

“I believe there’s a calling for all of us.
I know that every human being has value and purpose.
The real work of our lives is to become aware. And awakened. To answer the call.”
Oprah Winfrey

***
“We live in a world where bad stories are told,
stories that teach us life doesn’t mean anything
and that humanity has no great purpose.
It’s a good calling, then, to speak a better story.
How brightly a better story shines.
How easily the world looks to it in wonder.
How grateful we are to hear these stories,
and how happy it makes us to repeat them.”
Donald Miller, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: What I Learned While Editing My Life

***

The calling of the humanities is to make us truly human in the best sense of the word.

***

The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.

***

To me, the American Dream is being able to follow your own personal calling.
To be able to do what you want to do is incredible freedom.

***

Enjoy Your Weekend Everybody!

Diet

 

111

***

The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don’t want,
drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d rather not.

***

Your diet is a bank account. Good food choices are good investments.

 

***

I think of dieting, then I eat pizza.

***

“Dieting is the only game where you win when you lose!”
Karl Lagerfeld

***

“Food is an important part of a balanced diet.”
Fran Lebowitz

 

***
“It is easier to change a man’s religion than to change his diet.”
Margaret Mead

***

“You don’t have to be emaciated or vomiting to be suffering.
All people who live their lives on a diet are suffering.”
Portia de Rossi, Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain

 

***

“No disease that can be treated by diet should be treated with any other means.”
Maimonides

 

***

“I want to weigh less, not through diet and exercise, but by acquiring a faulty scale.”
Jarod Kintz, Seriously delirious, but not at all serious

Rudeness

rude

***

Anytime anybody is rude, it makes me double-check my own behavior
to make sure I don’t do that to other people.

***

“It is terribly rude to tell people that their troubles are boring.”
Lemony Snicket, The Blank Book

***

“Rudeness is the weak man’s imitation of strength.”
Edmund Burke

***

“A rude man tells a women to stop talking too much because she is making noise.
A polite man will tell this same woman that she looks so beautiful when her lip are closed.
Compare and choose one! Speak politely; but be sure you get to where you are going with your words.”
Israelmore Ayivor

***
“If you are rude, cynical, habitually-sarcastic or pessimistic, your life options are going to be very limited.”
Bryant McGill, Simple Reminders: Inspiration for Living Your Best Life
***
You can be strong and true to yourself without being rude or loud.

***

“I would apologize for my rudeness, if I had any manners. Happily, I don’t.”
Tamora Pierce, Emperor Mage

***

“You’ve just inherited rudeness. We’ve had to work at it.”
John Connolly, The Infernals

***

but it will change your world and your relationships.”

Groundhog Day

10945756_1548276268744762_6741220882174854520_n

***

The groundhog is like most other prophets; it delivers its prediction and then disappears.
~Bill Vaughn

***

Old Groundhog stretched in his leafy bed.
He turned over slowly and then he said,
“I wonder if spring is on the way,
I’ll go and check the weather today…”
~Author Unknown, “Groundhog Day”

***

To shorten winter, borrow some money due in spring.
~W.J. Vogel

***

Alas! must it ever be so?
Do we stand in our own light, wherever we go,
And fight our own shadows forever?
~Edward Robert Bulwer Lytton

***
The trouble with weather forecasting is that it’s right too often for us to ignore it
and wrong too often for us to rely on it.
~Patrick Young
***
Though the groundhog and crocus creep into their holes
It’s Spring, and the almanac shows it;
Though a polar wave over the continent rolls
It’s Spring! And we don’t care who knows it!
~Robert J. Burdette, “March,” c.1888
***
If Candlemas Day be fair and bright,
Winter will have another fight;
But if Candlemas Day be clouds and rain,
Winter is gone, and will not come again.
~Old Rhyme
***
Yesterday was “ground-hog’s day” in many parts of the United States,
and Candlemas day in many other parts of the world.
From time immemorial, it has been a critical day in the affairs of the weather.
The character of the second of February is really of much more importance
than whether the first of March comes in like a lion or a lamb.
The simplest form of the adage is:—
If Candlemas day be bright and clear,
There’ll be two winters in that year.
~Hartford Courant, 1877 February 3rd
***
Finally, a holiday animal we can relate to. While holidays and magical animals go hand in hand,
most holiday creatures are downright demented…. Punxsutawney Phil is different.
He’s just a simple groundhog that pops out of his dwelling from time to time to see his shadow.
He’s one of the guys.
~Flying LlamaFish, “7 Reasons Groundhog Day is the Ultimate Holiday,” 2010, PunIntended.com
***
If ground-hog day was bright and fair,
The beast came forth, but not to stay;
His shadow turned him to his lair,
Where six weeks more, he dormant lay
Secure in subterranean hold—
So wondrous weatherwise was he—
Against six weeks of ice and cold,
Which, very certain, there would be…
~H.L. Fisher, “Popular Superstitions,” Olden Times: or,
Pennsylvania Rural Life, Some Fifty Years Ago, and Other Poems
, 1888
***
To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring.
~George Santayana
***
Don’t knock the weather; nine-tenths of the people couldn’t start a conversation if it didn’t change once in a while.
~Kin Hubbard
***
Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.
~Maori Proverb
***
Winter is nature’s way of saying, “Up yours.”
~Robert Byrne
***
Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!”
~Robin Williams
***
Everybody who knew anything about ciphering was called in to consider it.
A young man from a high school near here, who made a specialty of mathematics and pimples,
and who could readily tell how long a shadow a nine-pound ground-hog
would cast at 2 o’clock and 37 minutes P.M., on ground-hog day,
if sunny, at the town of Fungus, Dak., provided latitude and longitude and an irregular mass of red chalk be given to him,
was secured to jerk a few logarithms in the interests of trade. He came and tried it for a few days,
covered the interior of the Exposition Building with figures and then went away.
~Bill Nye, “Seeking to be Identified,” Nye and Riley’s Railway Guide by Edgar W. Nye and James Whitcomb Riley, 1888
***
In America, paying due deference to the creature’s importance is our national mythology,
it is left to the ground-hog to decide the day, and so the fate of the season.
He is supposed to come out of his hole on that day, and take a look at the world.
If it is a bright day, he will see his shadow on the ground, and, taking fright at it, will run back into his home and stay there.
A fresh attack of winter will set in, and he will be justified in the steps he has taken.
If it is cloudy, he will cast no shadow, take no fright, and gives us no further attack of winter.
~Hartford Courant, 1877 February 3rd
***
Whereas, Today, the 2nd day of February, is the genuine, original and undisputed ground-hog day of our ancestors,
handed down to posterity for many generations; and
Whereas, the same has not been legally recognized by any legislative enactment appearing on our Statutes; and
Whereas, We consider it almost an unpardonable oversight in the party
which has for so many years administered the affairs of this State; therefore, be it Resolved,
That we, the representative men of this State, filled with patriotism and love for the prognosticator of the weather,
recognize this day as “Ground-hog day,” and that legal enactment should fix the date, the 2nd of February,
which shall forever remain without defalcation or discount, as Ground-hog day,
never to be changed by constitutional amendments or acts of any Legislature of this State.
~Journal of the House of Representatives of the 38th General Assembly (Regular Session) of the State of Missouri,
Twenty-Fifth Day, Saturday, February 2, 1895
***
It’s a freakin’ holiday entirely based on the power of a psychic rodent.
If that isn’t the epitome of awesome, I don’t know what is.
~Flying LlamaFish, “7 Reasons Groundhog Day is the Ultimate Holiday,” 2010, PunIntended.com
***
In European folk-lore, the bear is the Candlemas weather-prophet.
~John Russell Bartlett, Dictionary of Americanisms:
A Glossary of Words and Phrases Usually Regarded as Peculiar to the United States
, 1877
***
Every mile is two in winter.
~George Herbert
***
***Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.
~Doug Larson
***
***Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.
~Anthony J. D’Angelo, The College Blue Book
