Odds and Ends from My Email

Links, games, videos


Thanks to Fred, Gloria, Kenneth, Elaine, Taurus, and others who have sent me interesting links.

  • On Veterans Day, all military personnel (current or former) are invited to a free meal at Golden Corral and Applebees. Bring proof of military service.
  • Apple Picking Time -- Can you get half the apples in the pail? If so, you are quicker than I am!
  • The Bear-- A 4-minute wildlife video with a surprise ending by Jean-Jacques Annaud. Well worth watching.
  • Circle the cat game -- it hasn't got any easier since the last time someone sent me the link!
  • Test your reaction time. You might be faster than you think -- or maybe not.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)

Thanks for reading.
