Research has shown that every emotion has a lifespan of just 90 seconds. After that we have to revive the emotions and get it going again. Stop "feeding" the emotion and it will go away.

Top o' the morning to all!

'Tis a great day for the wearing' of the Green. 'Tis. 'Tis

May the road rise up to meet your feet
May the sun shine ever on your face
May the winds be always at your back
May the rains fall gently on your fields and
May you be in Heaven for an hour afore the Devil knows you're dead

Today is the last day of my sixty-seventh tripo around the sun. As I look back I have been blessed. There aare a lot of places where there is only one set of footprints in the sands of my life but there are a lot of places where there are two sets of foorprints, side by side. I have been truly blessed. Everything that is good that could have happened did not necessarily happen but I have so much compared to so many, I am truly thankful.

Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. Peace means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart.

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."
-Steve Jobs

I need to remind myself of this quite often. I know the only way I will accomplish my goal of losing weight and anything else I do with my life is with God on my side.

Monumental weather and traffic event in the ATL. Decisions were made based on the best information available at the time. There was a monumental traffic jamb. People were stranded. People helped people. Some children were "sheltered in place" at school. Everyone is home. One fatality, a 17 year old boy who probably had zero experience in driving in this mess. Condolences to his family and friends.

Now the talking head A-holes in New York who have never, never experience a Georgia ice storm and have never driven on hills in icy or snowy conditions all want to Monday morning quarterback the decision that were made. Al Roker and Matt Lauer can eat mud! (or whatever else you might find appropriate and probably socially unacceptable.)
