Nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.”

Still out in the woods without much for internet so I will share less of my words and more from those who are a bit wiser that I am.

 

Have a great week!

Bob, how old were we when first we sat on a mother's knee, or grandmother, as she read to us the story of "The Little Engine That Could:?  "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can."  Now, I hold to Paul's words to the Phillipians: "I can do all things through Him who strengthen me."  I know, "With God, all things are possible."

Yes, we must count the cost;  but the cost of trying and failing is never as bad as the cost of not trying, or quitting!

I never saw my dad back away from a task that had to be done.  Oft I have wondered how much his duties in the Allusian Islands during WWII fostered that resolve; but I suspect his life during the great recession prepared him for the Allusian Island battles, which tempered him for a life of hard work and discipline.  It would be easy for me to think I have endured hard times, but I know better, so I wonder for what God tempers my metal.  I find quitting so repulsive that some around me, give me strange looks; but in the end, I will move the boulder out of my path.  That is not to my credit, but my nature.  Thanks Dad.  I suspect he was the engineer aboard that little engine that could.

Bob Crane I am sure you are enjoying little mild weather in Mid-November.

And wise words from others are equally good - so keep them coming.....

These are some of my favorite quotes. I think this will be one to live by in 2016: “Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; But make it hot by striking.”

I personally think that positive attitude puts out positive energy and the same for negativity.  People feel the energy you put out!

As we head into the historically slower portion of the real estate year in the colder climates of the U.S., your words shared prove extremely timely and uplifting, Bob Crane.  Inspiration!

Hi Bob Crane You are always in my mind. Recently I have been watching a series of videos on youtube from the UW on silvaculture and silvapastures and inter-cropping.

Merry Christmas. I hope you get everything you want.
