Staying alive


Come on in - I hope you are having a wonderful day so far!
Actually you have to be having a great day - it is only 6 am!


A math problem is a good way to start the day.  
Gets the brain cells going!
If you have an answer put it in your comment and I will tell you if you are right.



A belated Irish Blessing.







Now a little something to learn.
Remember the BeeGee's and their song
Staying Alive?




I have a girlfriend who worked at the Red Cross here in Atlanta and she told me there was a way to do CPR without doing the breathing part - it is called hands on CPR.

Here it is Staying Alive Hands on Video.  Be sure an share this around.  It does work.

She's doing her Staying Along Dance!!!



Okay now here's a little laugh (at least I think it is funny! Of course I am a little nutty...) 





and . . . 


Generally by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been 
loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints 
and very shabby.  But these things don't matter at all, because once
you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't 
understand." -Margery Williams







I babysit Disco these days -shhhh he is taking a nap.  

(By the way his knee is doing much better - he is on a supplement and has lost two pounds.)  


1 Peter 3:8
Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another,be compassionate and humble. Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. 


Have a blessed Easter.

since it looks like King Disco has charge of the desk chair, i am assuming you were not preparing this post at that time. i love that photo. so precious..

Cheri said...

I love that pic of Disco but it doesn't look comfortable. My pups do this too with their head up and I always think they are uncomfortable but apparently it isn't.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

A very Happy Easter to you and yours too ! My grandchildren recently reminded me...Jesus is the reason for the season...I thought how true, not just at Christmas, but at Easter too.

Seventeen, my age when I married Sherry! I had to have my parents permission! LOL What a beautiful entry. Love the pic of Disco and the Cat-dance! LOL I did grin at the bored sheep!
6AM, I forgot real people do get up that early! LOL
Great visit!

Love from Florida Jack & Sherry

The sheepdog is funny! I did not know about this CPR, wonder why no one ever mentions it? I am so glad Disco is doing better! I love that you always post such a variety of things! There is always something to love, and I never know what I will find. Happy Easter!!!!

Betsy Adams said...

I say '16'....... what say you?

Nobody much participates in these little brain teasers. Wonder why? People just won't take time I guess...

Hugs,
Betsy

Nonnie said...

Please don't start me out in the morning with a math problem!!! Wouldn't it be nice to be so relaxed as Disco looks in that pic! Jealous. You are too funny with the bored sheep dog! Haha!

Nonnie said...

And I forgot to wish you a blessed Resurrection Day, too! Thanks for all the smiles.

Paula said...

That photo of Disco is damn cute.

I haven't a clue about the Maths, I gave it up in school and have never used it since!

Happy Easter to you!

Knitty said...

25 is my answer. And my age (in my head, anyway).

Happy Easter to you and your family.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

My answer is 70. Loved the video on CPR. I shared it with my family. Have a blessed Easter.

laurie said...

I think you covered all the bases with this post,, some laughs, some brain teasers to keep us alert, some health advice,, very interesting and some good news regarding Disco,, I'm glad his diet is working,,, mines not lol,,

NanaDiana said...

Yep- that is the new way to do CPR. They no longer suggest doing the breathing but just the chest compressions.

Loved this post-it is so much fun to see posts from you again! xo Diana

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

My answer is 70. So glad that Disco is doing better. I hope you and your family have a lovely Easter,

Jill said...

16. Your funnies just cracked me up! I love your sense of humor. Good to know Disco is doing better! I wish you and your family a very Blessed Easter!

mail4rosey said...

I'm going to guess 16. I didn't know you could do no-hands CPR, but I did know there was a device to put over a mouth if you needed to use it, instead of putting your lips on the person.

Happy Easter to you, my friend!!

Lynn said...

Disco sleeping - how precious is that?

Starry Dawn said...
