'You've got to find what you love,' Jobs says

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

This is a prepared text of the Commencement address delivered by Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, on June 12, 2005.


I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I've ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That's it. No big deal. Just three stories.

    What an insightful view of life. Definitely food for thought. Change is something we all have to go through in life and it's how we handle change that can make or break our life experience. He had the right perspective.

We all want to feel indispensible, but reality is . . . we're NOT!

Life really IS to short not to do what we love. Thanks for sharing this.

    It really gives you a new perspective on things. Not that I would encourage kids to drop out of college, although the speech was to graduates. I do think his message is spot on when it comes to finding our own path in life. It does teach you that what may seem like a class in college you might not think so important at the time, may be the one that helps give you the inspiration to do great things. It is so sad to lose such a visionary man at such a young age!!!

Thank you for sharing this Jenny...

Top ten peeves dogs have about humans

Wednesday, October 12, 2011


'1'
Blaming your farts on me.....
Not funny... Not funny at all !!!


~~~

'2'
Yelling at me for barking.
I AM A F-R-I-G-G-I-N' DOG


~~~

'3'
Taking me for a walk, then
Not letting me check stuff out!
Exactly whose walk is this anyway?


~~~
'4'
Any trick that involves balancing
Food on my nose. Stop it!


~~~

'5'
Any haircut that involves bows or ribbons.
Now you know why we chew your stuff
up when you're not home.


~~~

'6'
The slight of hand, fake fetch throw.
You fooled a dog! Whooooooo Hoooooooo - what
A proud moment for the top of the food chain.


~~~

'7'
Taking me to the vet for 'the big snip', then acting
Surprised when I freak out every time we go back!


~~~

'8'
Getting upset when I sniff the crotches of your guests.
Sorry, but I haven't quite mastered that handshake thing yet.


~~~

'9'
Dog sweaters. Hello ???
Haven't you noticed the fur?

~~~

'10'
How you act disgusted when I lick myself.
Look, we both know the truth. You're just jealous.

~~
Now lay off me on some of these things.
We both know who's boss here!
You don't see me picking up your poop, do you?

    LOL. That is the best to read on a rainy bad day. Thanks for for the cheer up. Dogs rule in my house most of the time. The vet does not apply to one of my dogs, she actually runs to the car when you tell her she is going.

My friend's new ATW

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

Getting old is easy.....
Having fun at it is the real trick.

A friend celebrated his birthday this year
by buying an all terrain 4 wheeler.
This is a picture of him playing with
it in the back yard.



Life is Fleeting By. Enjoy it while you can!
