Quotes of the Day - Margaret Thatcher and Yoda

Tuesday, September 01, 2009

~ You may have to fight a battle more than once to win. ~ Margaret Thatcher

Do, or do not. There is no "try." - Yoda

As long as you're alive, go ahead and check your pulse, you're in the game and you've got a shot. If you throw in the towel at 30 but die at 65 (way too young) what were you doing with all that time? Could've been time spent making the hard choices, doing the not so easy things (like blogging) and adding some joy and years to your life. - me

Read This And Die of a Fart Attack!

Excellent choice! You're passing (pardon the pun) will bring much joy and laughter to those fortunate enough to witness this once in your lifetime event. All that's left is to choose a venue. Some personal favs are: a crowded after lunch elevator, coitus, annual physical/pap smear, Disneyworld, family reunion, intermission of a play/symphony/ etc, yoga class...

Still can't believe I chose Bananas over Peanut M&Ms...

Friday, August 14, 2009

I stared into the vending machine...this can't be right? There sat a 3.27 oounce bag of Peanut M&Ms for only $1.25! Normally for that price you get the 1.74 ounce bag. Twice the deliciousness for half the money. As I stood there, sippin on my freshly reheated coffee, it dawned on me: this is a test! I remembered I still had the two bananas I bought earlier for a whopping .35 cents and figured long term, they were the better deal.

    Good job! It would have been a hard choice for me, too, but the good feeling from knowing you passed the test will last much longer than the temporary enjoyment and then guilty feelings you probably would have had from the candy. emoticon

    emoticon on making the right choice! I never liked bananas too much but that has been changing. I probably would have made the same choice, but it is definitely progress, and I am sure you felt much better about it at the end of the day.

What's Wrong With This Picture??? (pic)

Tuesday, August 11, 2009

Guess Subway hasn't heard the news about America's "growing" problem. When did they start super sizing? Is it our responsibility to say no at the register or is it there's not to come up with offers like these? Is it ethical to make a buck up selling while your very customers are getting sicker? So many questions...

    Awww the power of the almighty dollar. So many business will put profit above everything else. It is a sad reality. The only way they will stop is if it isn't making money.
Is it ethical, no!
We as consumers will have to be the one to stand up and say no I can't live this way anymore!

    Greed drives a lot of us to do stupid things, like buy to get something free. We should think what the free or reduced cost actually costs us.

    We all have a responsibility to ourselves to make responsible decisions about our health and our eating, but offers like these DO make it a lot more difficult. The ethics in our country will not change until the public reaches an outcry and more and more people take responsibility for their own eating.

    I guess that is how SUBWAY is staying in competition with the other fast food restaurants. I don't go to fast food restaurants so I've not seen this. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

    Freedom of speech and to make a buck. The laws are on the producers side. The saying you can pull a donkey to water but can't make it drink.. People have to show backbone and start saying no. Peer pressure can work both ways, actually responsiblity stops with the individual, and as long as people see every one else doing they think why should I? Many people run the risk of health issues, and regret when they are on their doorsteps..
A few well placed laws are needed to avoid these signs Believe me the producers know what they are doing and I think it is helping people committment active suicide. These producers are making other human being look snot dumb and a easy push over to make a buck...
