Money

This poignant clip is about saving up for a dream…and dipping into those savings along the way when life’s path was met with reasons or obstacles, emergencies or life’s unexpected kinks— to merit use of the hard-earned dream money.

I think most of us would be able to point to something in our lives that side-tracked us or put the dream on hold.

Usually, too, that thing which merited the funds diversion was something which gave us a sense of personal joy just to be able to help.

Thanks for coming by to share a thoughtful reminder that life indeed is too short.  What we make of it is everything, in the end.

I’d like to thank my sweetheart for passing this my way…to be able to share with all of you.

 

Hope you enjoy “Corvette Heaven” as much as we did!

 

Thank you,  baby.

Crackers and Bits: Bliss of Married Life

Posted in Comedy, Crackers and Bits, Family, Friendship, Fun and Entertainment, Hope, Humor, Kindness, Life, Love, Marriage, Musing, Parenting, Pet peeves and annoyances, Relationships, Thought For Today, Truth, Video Clips, Wisdom on January 14, 2015 by Morguie

The honeymoon…well, it’s o-v-e-r.

But not really…the little stuff one never seems to notice about the spouse just happens to be more noticeable after the afterglow.

Remember kids, it is the little stuff in life we stress over that really, in the end, doesn’t amount to anything.

It just irritates us in such a way as to make us feel it IS important.

So give each other a hug and a kiss and try to see things from the other’s point of view…then, go out and have some real quality time together…enjoy each other!

Enjoy these ‘universal issues’ in the cute clips we have for you today! Sending a shout out to Holly, CJ’s daughter, for bringing these to our attention!

CJ Takes A Reader’s Request

Posted in Comedy, Fiction, Fictional, Fact-based Stories, Humor, Personal Opinion, Thought For Today, Wisdom with tags , , , , , on January 4, 2015 by Morguie

CJ has been asked to address an issue, by a follower, Ted,  over at Twitter. She decided to tackle this most interesting request, as gently as she could, so as not to send people away in a cold panic.

Okay, Ted. If you simply must know…

English: Dryer screen containing accumulated lint.

One might easily believe this conclusion could be valid. However, upon closer inspection, nothing could be further from the truth.

You see, dryer lint is a gradual gathering, or harvesting, of the sock’s essential tissues. In effect, what you have here is actually a case of, well, organ stealing. There. I said it.  Every time a sock enters into that Hose zone known as the dryer, small, evil (and invisible to the eye) entities actually deploy,  going to work in excising parts from the sock-body; a sock-heart today, the sock-stomach the next time, you see where I’m going.

Don’t believe me? Go. Right now. Go open your sock drawer and examine any pair of socks. Look closely, you may detect an actual hole starting in the toe or heel of the socks. Sneaky, insidious, and oh so gradually.

English: A white sock.

Then, one day, the entire sock is gone. You’ll search all through that load of drying to find the mate to a single sock. Well, I am here to say, just stop looking. It is no use. You’ll never find it.

Those entities try, but rarely succeed, in taking all the ‘snatchings’ as they make their hasty getaway when the buzzer goes off. (You will notice the white bits in the lint — evidence of sock-bone snatchings they dropped as they escaped out the duct)

And that is what dryer lint is really made of.

Dryer lint is the sloppy result of thieves engaging in sneaky harvesting of sock-body parts.

I hope this will clarify things, Ted.

2014 In Review — Special Thanks To You

To Our Devoted Followers and Accidental Tourists,

Loyal  Friends and Family:

Our existence would cease here, were it not for your solid support and encouragement…

We owe what we are here…TO YOU. And so, we want you to know how very much that means to us and the heartfelt

affection and gratitude we hold for each of you…Thank you Ever So Much. We are very happy to get 2014 behind us…as many of you know,

we have had an extraordinarily hard year, as we have had to bid farewell to at least 10 of our dearest family and friends.  It seemed like a mass exodus had launched in

a very short period…6 or more just from the end of May to the end of July…it made for a time of low creativity and lots of days between posts.

We only averaged 2.4 posts a week, which is abysmal, especially since most of you are prolific with your own blogs, rain or shine, even in your own adversities.

If YOU can do it, then so can we. We are going to be more focused in 2015, more engaged, and we sincerely hope

to catch up on reading the huge volume of your uniquely interesting posts, giving you back some of the support you were so gracious to give to us.

So, thank you, again… we are humbled and honored to be able to know such talented and fascinating people; to have your friendship.

We want to Especially Thank our Faithful (visits and comments on nearly EVERY post),

Encouraging and Engaged Fans —if not, the most luxuriously whiskered, as in David’s case — 😛

Always,

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,700 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

Eastern Lightning

Eastern Lightning, the Church of Almighty God was created because of the appearance and work of Almighty God, the second coming of the Lord Jesus, Christ of the last days. It is made up of all those who accept Almighty God’s work in the last days and are conquered and saved by His words. It was entirely founded by Almighty God personally and is led by Him as the Shepherd. It was definitely not created by a person. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. God’s sheep hear God’s voice. As long as you read the words of Almighty God, you will see God has appeared.
