life: Death's Door - was it a good life? - 12/03/12 11:01 PM
I went to 3 wakes & 2 funerals in the last 2 weeks, it brought to mind – was this life terrific?
The one was my brother-in-laws dad, 86 years old, veteran and seemed like a good guy. I wasn’t close to him, didn’t know much about his life, so am not here to judge.

Did I raise great kids? Did I spend enought time with them? Did I teach them the right values to live by? Are they contributing to society?
How about others – did I inspire … (1 comments)

For 30 years (1980 joined) I belonged to Bally's Gym. Never given a free training, a free water bottle, a thank you, always just the bill every July. Thirty years and nothing but a bill. Their rented facility is starting to deteriate too and no money being put into upgarding the facility.
I took a free 1 day pass to World Gym and what a difference. The free weights were actually on the rack where they were suppose to be. They had antiseptic spray bottles everywhere and cloths to wipe down the machines (bally's did not despite my many suggestions). The … (73 comments)

life: Mayo Jar & Two Beers - a life lesson. - 04/07/09 01:25 AM
Mayonnaise Jar & Two Beers... When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 Beers. A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar … (7 comments)
