A Wisdom of the Ages Message that needs to be understood by everyone
I hope you had a great weekend. Last night we took time to watch a movie on Direct TV, which we rarely do. When it comes to movies, I prefer true stories over any other category.
Since I haven’t got to pick the movie since I can remember, Dawn & Torrey let me pick last night. I chose McFarland which was moive that looked interesting but I really knew nothing about.
Just let me say this, every child needs to see this movie!
Since I live in Kentucky people are always asking me about the Kentucky Derby and horse racing. Today Amazon Kindle is offering a free download of a book called “The Elite Elleve”. I don’t know of a better way to brush up on your horse racing fans.
I originally wrote this a several days ago, and just realized I never posted it…. so here it is….just in case we get the snow they are forecasting this weekend.
I am constantly shocked at the attitude “If first I don’t succeed, fix the blame quick” and the fact that we live in a world were everything bad that happens must to be blamed on something or somebody. We experience this daily from people in our industry. When are we going to realize that until, we accept responsibility we cannot get better at anything. Of course I am not saying that there was anything anyone could do to prevent the horrific ice and snow storm that hit the South. What I am trying to communicate is BLAMING others becomes a habit, and… Continue reading
It’s noon and Dawn & I just got back from voting.
So tomorrow either Romney or Obama will be president
for the next 4 years. After months of political ads, publicity,
and social media arguments, thankfully it all ends tonight.
Whoever wins, I hope the country and politicians can come together to
improve our dysfunctional US government and change things for the
better. The best quote I have heard during all the noise was during
the vice president debate when Paul Ryan said, there are democrats
and republicans that both love America. We have to stop worrying
about who is going to win the next election and focus on making the
decisions that will move the country forward, now!
All the campaigning definitely didn’t unite us. Both candidates… Continue reading
Thanks to my buddy Charllie Thackston for sharing
this with me!
I had not read these before. Outstanding!
At a time when our president and other politicians
tend to apologize for our country’s prior actions,
here’s a refresher on how some of our former
patriots handled negative comments about
the United States.
These are good
Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France
in the early 60’s when DeGaulle decided to pull
out of NATO. DeGaulle said he wanted all US
Military out of France as soon as possible.
“Does that include those who are buried here?”
Did not respond.
“You Could have heard a pin drop”
When in England ,
At a fairly large conference, Colin Powell
was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury
if our plans for Iraq were just an example
of ‘empire… Continue reading
A friend of mine sent this to me, TODAY—they
live in Pennsylvania , and I think it is worth reading
and worth passing along and DEFINITELY
READ IT, PASS IT ON AND JUST LOOK A
LITTLE MORE CAREFULLY FOR THE
“MADE IN AMERICA ” BRANDS—
WE HAVE GOT TO GET THIS COUNTRY MOVING
AGAIN—-FORGET CHINA , FOR THEY WILL EAT
OUR LUNCH IF WE DON’T START LOOKING AT
“THE KITCHEN” MORE CAREFULLY I DIDN’T KNOW
HALLMARK CARDS WERE MADE IN CHINA !
That is also why I don’t buy cards at Hallmark
anymore, They are made in China and are more
expensive! I buy them at Dollar Tree – 50 cents each
and made in USA. Try this the next time a friend or
family member has a birthday, write them a birthday
letter. It will probably mean… Continue reading
