Sometimes you deserve a second chance, not because you weren't fabulous the first time but because the timing and circumstances weren't quite right. You just got overlooked."

Does getting Featured here in The Rain sometimes feel like a roll of the dice? Not anymore. I'm always open to member suggestions on posts that should be Featured but somehow got missed. 

Giving deserving posts more exposure is what Second Chance Saturday is all about.  As you read blog posts during the week, be sure to TAG ME in the comment section of any post you wish to nominate as Feature-worthy.  Then watch for it in the next edition of Second Chance Saturday.

I loved the Quora article. We do think we NEED all sorts of things that we didn't need in the 50's. And those things cost money we didn't need to spend back then.

Every time I drive by a hospital with an overflowing parking lot I think about why people are sicker today. Gee, could it be the unhealthy, lethargic lifestyle and the food laced with dozens of chemicals? Could it be the "supersizing" of so many bodies?

Carol,

Thank you for including our post in your Second Chance Saturday feature.  We appreciate it, and I enjoyed writing this one, because so many think that stuff will give them the unfair advantage instead of their unique brilliant selves.  A

Hi Marte Cliff 
We always appreciate your wisdom because you're always right on!  Our lifestyles are so much different than when we were young... and it takes a lot of money! We could certainly survive on much less.
