Shakespeare used “Woe is me.” in his play Hamlet.

And you know it has hit teh big time when there is sheet music for “Woe is me.” from Spongebob!

NEWTON’S THEORIES

Who could have guessed that the easiest way of proving Newton’s First Law of Motion was to look at a bachelor’s house?

Newton’s First Law states that an object will remain at rest or in uniform motion in a straight line unless acted upon by an external force.

  • The dishes you take to the bedroom for a late night snack stay there.
  • The clothes that remain on the floor as you get dressed in the morning stay there.
  • The blankets and bedspread remain tossed and twirled, just like you left them.

I’ll stop …

There’s no need for you to know all of my proof statements.

A NEW SOLUTION


For a while, I was trying just to sit down and practice my music lessons for 10 minutes a day, knowing that once I had sat down, I would stay longer.

That worked.

Now, the pieces have gotten far more difficult. I need to develop more skilled fingering techniques and practice improving my dynamics (piano-forte) as much as I need to just be able to plunk at the correct keys.

THE NEW SOLUTION

When I sit down to practice now, my aim is to play each selection five times.

  • I begin with the plunking of the correct keys …
  • Then I work at the perfection of the rhythms …
  • Next I work on the individual lines with the proper musical dynamics.
  • When I think I have it, be that the third time (or the fourth or fifth), I play it one last time for perfection.
  • When I wander past the piano the next time for that day, I do the next song.

This has been a very enjoyable way to precede… at the moment.

RESIDENTIAL TAXES SOON



You can tell you belong to a thriving community when the calendar turns.

There are…

  • Property taxes …
  • Dog tags …
  • Residential development taxes …
  • Town taxes …
  • County taxes …
  • States taxes …
  • Federal taxes …
  • And soon, I was delighted to hear, we may get to pay road tolls just to cross town.

It’s so nice to belong!

WHO COULD HAVE PREDICTED IT?

I just finished watching Miss Congeniality on Amazon Prime. I happened to show up on my Movies You Might Like list and I had heard of the title before, so I tried it.

I was filled with so many unexpected chuckles…

With the things that seem to go for humor today…. This one, from back in the day,  will wet-your-whistle.

It is a bit of a chick-flick… but the chick is not a normal chick.

Trust me…. You’ll laugh too!

FYI: I liked it enough I am going to try Miss Congeniality II.

MAKE YOUR OWN TRAIL MIX

MAKE YOUR OWN TRAIL MIX



Google and find a great recipe for original Trail Mix.

Pick and choose the ingredients you like.

I like Rice Chex and Corn Chex…

Not so much for Wheat Chex.

Be sure to hold yourself to account for the number of cups of cereal-type things you use.

This is important so that the seasonings align for a good taste!

Add BUGLES and M&Ms for a great sweet and salty taste!!!

You know… those opposing taste qualities are quite attractive. 

I use the microwave.

It’s so quick and easy!!!

An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.

Martin Luther King, Jr.


A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.

Christopher Reeve


I’m not the kind of person who tries to be cool or trendy, I’m definitely an individual.

Leonardo DiCaprio


Every individual has a place to fill in the world and is important in some respect whether he chooses to be so or not.

Nathaniel Hawthorne


Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.
