I have recently discovered the joy of listening to audiobooks. It is really nice to have people read stories to you! My favorite book so far is Anthony Bourdain’s Kitchen Confidential. What is yours?


Quote(s) of the Day

Just a virtual hug against worries and the world…..

When you make a mistake, don’t look back at it long. Take the reason of the thing into your mind and then look forward. Mistakes are lessons of wisdom. The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.
Hugh White (1773 – 1840)  He was the US Senate Pro Tem in 1840, and a politician.  I just liked this quote.


If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down but the staying down.
Mary Pickford (1893 – 1979)  She was “America’s Sweetheart” in the days of silent films.  A famous actress, she saw talking films start but never made the transition to the “talkies”.  Her eyes and her body did all the talking in her silent films.  And she divorced, when it was just not done.

Quote of the Day

All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts…
William Shakespeare, “As You Like It”, Act 2 scene 7

I like this one….. However I have always been the person who likes to be the one behind the stage, helping the actors with their parts……  Its creativity at its best when you know that you helped make something….
