Today I have chosen Christian

music, and a old time

favorite of mine and

hopefully yours too. Enjoy ..

The below is a bit lengthy -- but well worth

the read ... take it in ...

1. Try everything twice.

On one woman's tombstone she said she wanted this epitaph:

"Tried everything twice. Loved it both times!"


2. Keep only cheerful friends.

The grouches pull you down.

(Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!)

3. Keep learning:

Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever...

Never let the brain get idle.'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.'

And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud.

Laugh until you gasp for breath.

And if you have a friend who makes you laugh,

Spend lots and lots of time with HIM /HER.

6.. The tears happen:

Endure, grieve, and move on.

The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves.

LIVE while you are alive.


7. Surround yourself with what you love:

Whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever..

Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health:

If it is good, preserve it.

If it is unstable, improve it.

If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips..

Take a trip to the mall, even to the next city, state/province,

To a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

I love you, my special friend.

11. Forgive now those who made you cry.
You might not get a second chance.

Do share this with someone. 

Remember! Lost time can never be found.

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you

meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Old Frisbees laying around?

Use them for paper plate support.

Some House Mouse humor .....

Wine does not make you FAT .....

It makes you LEAN .....

(against tables, chairs, floors, walls and sometimes ugly people.)

Taking a ride today in nature's beauty and peace.

Lore and Legend

You might think that this is all about Punxsutawney Phil in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania,

and Wiarton Willie in Wiarton, Ontario. (Groundhog) In fact, there is a bit more to the

day than that.

February 2 is also Candlemas Day. In the Christian tradition, it is the day when a

year’s supply of candles is blessed. See more about Candlemas.

February 2 is 40 days after Christmas and is known as the Feast of the Purification

among Christians. “Februa” was the month for cleansing, when yule greens were

removed from homes and churches and old brush and debris were burned to prepare

the fields for the next sowing.

February 2 is exactly halfway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox.

When is the spring equinox? See our first day of spring page here.

Oh, about that groundhog: If he sees his shadow, expect 6 more weeks of winter.
