“Morality is not properly the doctrine of how we may make ourselves happy, but how we may make ourselves worthy of happiness.”

One morning, little Joanna was sitting in the kitchen, watching her mother wash dishes. She noticed that her mom had several strands of white hair streaking through her brown hair. Joanna said, “Why have you got those white hairs, Mommy?”
Her mother replied, “Well, dear, every time a daughter does something bad and makes her mommy unhappy, one of her mommy’s hairs turns white.”
Joanna thought for a second and then asked, “Mommy, how come all of grandma’s hairs are white?”

The Office (2005–)

Several years before creating the role of the buffoon boss in the BBC series The Office, Ricky Gervais was at a job interview when the interviewer interrupted him to take a phone call. The man pretended to be nice to the caller, while mouthing to Gervais that the guy was a “wanker.” According to Gervais, that moment laid the foundation for David Brent’s pompous insincerity.

Another day of celebrating...

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

Yesterday, Cliff & I celebrated my birthday. We went to our favorite place for breakfast - where I was able to get lunch instead since I don't like breakfast that much. I had my favorite Chicken Caesar Salad - yum! Cliff had a swiss cheese omelet.

Then we were on our way to Lisle, IL to the Morton Arboretum:








I also have a couple of videos that I took - I'll try to post them tomorrow.

After the Arboretum, we went to see "Iron Man 3" which was really great!!

Then dinner at Jamieson's which is a short distance from our house.

Then home to watch Dancing with the Stars.

All in all, I had a great day!

Celebrating my birthday

Monday, May 06, 2013

Today, Cliff & I are going to celebrate my 60th birthday since he had to work yesterday...and I wanted to celebrate the whole day!

Yesterday, I had a great day - I walked with my girlfriend like we always do every Sunday. Then we went garage and estate saling - something we both absolutely LOVE to do.


These are some glass flowers that I found for only $5.00!

Next comes my most excellent purchase EVER:


This leather jacket was only.....................


wait for it...................


$2.00!! emoticon

We ate lunch at one of my favorite fast food places called Boobie's where I had my absolute favorite sandwich - grilled salami and cheese! Yum!

Later in the afternoon, when Cliff got home, he surprised me with:





All in all, an excellent birthday...and another day to celebrate...can't go wrong with that!

Today is my 60th birthday!

Sunday, May 05, 2013



Finally, my 60th birthday has officially arrived!



I am trying to use a positive attitude because I am really struggling with being 60. I know it's just a number...but it's kind of an overwhelming number!

Knock, knock.
Who’s there?
Weasel.
Weasel who?
Weasel while you work.

Among Kentucky Derby champions, what was unique about Canonero II, the 1971 upset winner?

He was the only foreign-based horse to win the Run for the Roses. He was from Venezuela.
____________________
“Good night, and good luck.”

Possibly the most famous sign-off in TV history, this phrase was coined by 1950s CBS News personality Edward R. Murrow. He got his start on radio during World War II, broadcasting from the rooftops of London buildings during the German blitz. Murrow used the line in an earnest attempt to reach out to the audience and provide comfort. He kept the line after the war and when he moved to TV.

2- More GOOD - and timely - trivia !
I just told Jack. He didn't know it either.

! WARNING ! Blatant Bragging follows !

YAY ! Jack and I just watched the Ky Derby.
It was 35 years ago on a date when we first
watched it together.
MY! Time sure does fly when you’re having FUN !

3- Yes, even I have heard of Murrow.
Jack and I have visited The Museum of Television
and Radio California branch. (The originally is
n New York City). It is emoticon
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it to everyone
but especially for us baby boomers.

I wondered what happened to Waggonner !
I had figured that he left because either
A) He was SO HANDSOME no one could stand it
or
B) He left to be on the Bionic Woman show

emoticon

for allowing me to contribute !

I BELIEVE what you post but a lot of the time
I am so intrigued that I want to learn MORE.
Hopefully I am sharing and adding points
of interest and NOT BABBLING BORINGLY !
