~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

"Eighty percent of life's satisfaction comes from meaningful relationships." - Brian Tracy

We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken away from a man but one thing; the last of the human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.

By Viktor E. Frankl

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

As a primarily right-brained person, I never go off on tangents, which are lines that intersect a curve at only one point and were discovered by Euclid, who lived in the sixth century, which was an era dominated by the Goths, who lived in what we now know as Poland, and if I had a pole and bait, I still would not be interested in drowning worms which was a great cathedral but I never could understand why Cathy did not want to marry me and I cannot remember ever dating anyone named Mary, forgive us now and in the hour ...

I must ask "Whasssup?" since I never use totally cool, radically groovy out-of-date slang.

I almost always avoid tumbling off the cliff of triteness into the black abyss of overused metaphors.

I keep my ear to the grindstone, my nose to the ground, take the bull by the horns of a dilemma [I've long wondered if Dilbert and Emma were to open a music store, would it be called The Horns of Dilemma?], and never mix my metaphors.

Above all, as all are aware, Asa avoids any awful anachronistic aggravating antediluvian alliterations.

A lot to be thankful for . . .

I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

An eagle can spot football-sized prey from a distance of almost two miles. Alan Hutchinson, in his gorgeous book of photographs and text, "Just Eagles," puts this into perspective: "With vision equal to an eagle's, you would be able to clearly see a pin lying along the shoulder of the highway while driving by at 65 miles an hour."

Just Eagles, By Hutchinson, Alan; Silliker, Bill, Jr. (photographer); Silliker, Bill, Published by Willow Creek Pr (Apr 1, 2000) ISBN: 1572232773, http://isbn.nu/1572232773
