For 2018

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

I love October - Halloween - and fall!

Tip of the Day:

What It Takes to Burn Off One Can of Soda
Whether you're loyal to Coke or Pepsi, a two-can-a-day habit can set you back when it comes to controlling calories. Aside from added sugar, a single can of soda contains 100 calories. It may not sound like much, but when you drink two or a three a day, the calories add up. Let's look at how much exercise you'll need to do to burn off one can of soda:

Walking: 26 minutes
Running: 11 minutes
Biking: 14 minutes

Truth does not become more true by virtue of the fact that the entire world agrees with it, nor less so even if the whole world disagrees with it. -Maimonides

Okay - here I am admitting a personality flaw in myself. I know for a fact that sometimes I can see/know the truth when others don't/can't. No matter what I say or do or even if I prove it - I cannot change their mind. It drives me nuts. So this quote is one I'm going to tattoo on my head! When I know the truth - it does not matter if others believe it or not! I KNOW IT'S TRUE AND THAT SHOULD BE ENOUGH!

What do you do when you know something to be true and others argue with you?

Some people regard discipline as a chore. For me, it is a kind of order that sets me free to fly." ~ Julie Andrews - Happy Birthday

I agree - being a disciplined person does set one free.

I don't mind knowing how much I have to exercise to burn off a soda, because I almost never drink one. Just don't tell me how hard I have to work to burn off a peanut butter sandwich ;-))
