True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

For a people who are free, and who mean to remain so, a well-organized and armed militia is their best security.
Thomas Jefferson

If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.
Henry Ford

The ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all.

John F. Kennedy

Question……….

Do you have an opinion about the 2012 Presidential campaign?

Leaving for Texas…….

Off to Texas I will be…
To see where my son has chosen to live.
I imagine he will have a smile on his face…
I imagine he will be happy to get going with his life.

I do plan on taking a lot of photos.
I will be happy to share them with you all.
I hope to get him all settled in,
so when I can’t sleep at night I will at least
have a visual. 🙂

Oh, my computer wiz son number 2 installed Skype for me.
I just have to figure it out!
Who knows, maybe I will talk to you all also.
That would be strange, huh?

Well, I must get ready for my trip.
I do not have a laptop, so unless I use my sons computer..I
will see you all when I get back.

Keep a smile on that face.
Stay positive…no negative, OK?

Oh, I plan on getting me a Texas hat!

How to LOOK at your bank Account….and smile*

This is AWESOME … something we should all remember.

A 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud man, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o’clock, with his hair fashionably combed and shaved perfectly, even though he is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today.
His wife of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary. After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, he smiled sweetly when told his room was ready.
As he maneuvered his walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of his tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on his window.
I love it,’ he stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having just been presented with a new puppy.
Mr. Jones, you haven’t seen the room; just wait.’
‘That doesn’t have anything to do with it,’ he replied.
Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time.
Whether I like my room or not doesn’t depend on how the furniture is arranged .. it’s how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it.
‘It’s a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice;
I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do.
Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open, I’ll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I’ve stored away… Just for this time in my life.
Old age is like a bank account. You withdraw from what you’ve put in.
So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories!
Thank you for your part in filling my Memory Bank.
I am still depositing.
‘Remember the five simple rules to be happy:
1. Free your heart from hatred.
2. Free your mind from worries.
3. Live simply.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less.

Thanks to Kristi!!!

Is this you yet?…..Ugh-)*

Ouch, that hurt!……….this joke sizzles…..

A wealthy man came home from a gambling trip and told his wife that he had lost their entire fortune and that they’d have to drastically alter their life-style.

“If you’ll just learn to cook,” he said, “we can fire the chef.”

“Okay,” she said. “And if you learn how to make love, we can fire the gardener.”

By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you’ll become happy; if you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher.

I had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalog: ‘No good in a bed, but fine against a wall.’
— Eleanor Roosevelt
Last week, I stated this woman was the ugliest woman I had ever seen. I have since been visited by her sister, and now wish to withdraw that statement.

Humor..Men vs Women…Shoes!

SHOES: When preparing for work, a woman will put on a Mondi wool suit, then slip on Reebok sneakers. She will carry her dress shoes in a plastic bag from Saks. When a woman gets to work, she will put on her dress shoes. Five minutes later, she will kick them off because her feet are under the desk. A man will wear the same pair of shoes all day.

So true! Why should we mess up our shoes! We have got to be styling! Our feet have to rest in between. You men ever notice those heels we walk in to look got for you? Gotta agree with this joke. How’s about you? I see guys wearing the same shoes day in and day out. They gotta be married and the good old wife is over spending on the shoe budget, huh?

Footnote: I will NOT even tell you how many shoes I have in my closet.There is never enough, right girls?
