HOW TO STAY WITH IT: Please add to the question at the bottom as a gift to ME today!

A FRIEND SENT ME THIS FOR MY BIRTHDAY TODAY

HOW TO STAY YOUNG  (My ‘Young’ boat has sailed, so I’d call this HOW TO STAY WITH IT!)   Please read till the bottom where I ask you a question!

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay ‘them.’

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. ‘An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.’ And the devil’s name is Alzheimer’s.

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it’s family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don’t take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.

10.Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Z:  While the “AND ALWAYS REMEMBER” thing just above is clever, I’m not too fond of little adages like that and I’d prefer to say

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by making each moment fun or spent learning something new or being kind”   

What would you add to it?

Thanks!

Bill Clinton on Immigration in 1995

Most of you’ve probably seen this…if you haven’t, please give a minute of your time…and please send it to particularly your liberal friends/relatives!

SO, folks; WHAT HAPPENED SINCE 1995 AND TODAY IN THE MIND OF A CLINTON?

Jersey Jack emailed this to me suggesting that Trump ought to get this televised!  I agree, don’t you?

Any HOPE? American and German educations…

My German student has moved in…amazing, wonderful 15 year old…smart beyond his years…except:  You should hear what German teachers are teaching the children, some of which includes:     Trump is awful and appeals to dumb Americans…this, German teachers learn from our liberal media who talks about “Trump’s BASE” as if we’re all idiots, of course.

Trump doesn’t understand climate change and how important it is to protect our planet. AND MORE…

My student also spoke about how Germany is no different now with all the Muslim immigrants and how nice it is to welcome them.  It took me about 1.5 minutes to remind him of the rape we read about, the money Germany’s spending on these people, how Germans aren’t having babies and Muslims are, etc.   He suddenly dropped the political correctness and totally agreed with me that this is NOT what’s good for Germans and they need to wake up!  1.5 minutes, I swear.   And this kid is no stupid push-over, even if he is so young.

SO:  Back to AMERICA and the image above;  CAN TEACHERS BE TAUGHT TO TEACH KIDS TO THINK AND NOT JUST BUY INDOCTRINATION?  WHAT WOULD IT TAKE TO WAKE THE LIBERAL BRAIN-DEAD INDOCTRINATORS UP ENOUGH TO STOP IT, REALIZE HOW UNAMERICAN IT TRULY IS, TO TEACH KIDS ONLY ONE SIDE…HATE? IS IT POSSIBLE?

The Left is just downright SCARED?

If I’m not mistaken, it was mostly Lefties who fought not to fight in Viet Nam.  I’d venture a guess more Dems ran to Canada than Reps.  WHY?

Does anybody think there are more Dems in the US Military than Reps?  Maybe, but I strongly doubt it.  WHY?

I watched Nikki Haley’s presser Monday and got tears in my eyes, literally, at her righteous resolve to, as she so aptly put it, “..not just pose for a handshake and a smile..”   but to DO SOMETHING to stop NoKo from Nukes, to support the Iranian protesters, etc. (By the way, I hope VERY strongly that our intel is sure about what the people are standing for and it doesn’t include continuing to hate us…my sense is they don’t but can we be sure what we’re buying here?)

HALEY THREATENS PRETTY DRAMATICALLY…SHE THREATENS NOKO, SHE THREATENS THE MULLAHS IN IRAN…..SHE’S THREATENING PAKISTAN…….and it occurs to me that her toughness is what is hated by THE LEFT here.

IS IT BECAUSE THEY’RE AFRAID TO PUSH TO THE POINT OF WAR?   WOULD THEY RUN FOR FIGURATIVE AND LITERAL COVER WERE WE ACTUALLY THREATENED?  AND WHAT PART OF WHAT KIM JUNG UN’S DONE SHOULDN’T BE CALLED ‘THREATENING’?    WILL IT TAKE LOSING NEW YORK CITY BEFORE THE LEFT SAYS ‘OK, HIT THEM BACK?’

THOUGHTS?  Is it mostly FEAR that prevents the Left from applauding Haley?  Because it IS scary, even for me, to hear her rhetoric, nobody wants to threaten nuclear war, though I know she is RIGHT.

Global Warming is going to drown NYC!  Muslims will get angry if we tell the truth about rapists in Germany or wife beaters here in America!  We’re threatening war with NoKo and Pakistan and Iran and Russia!   This is the Leftist meme.   Is it FEAR that keeps them from THE TRUTH, or something else?

Ingraham and Cooper….WEIRD

THINK LAURA INGRAHAM WAS WRONG?   See the comments to her Tweet?

I put CNN on for 15 minutes on New Year’s Eve and saw Anderson Cooper talking with some other CNN guy and doing tequila shooters as they talked, which I thought was weird ….until I heard the guy look at Cooper and say “Your eyes look SO blue tonight!” to which Cooper said “…well, wow………really?”    Boozing and flirting….THAT was weirder.

Thoughts on Ingraham and what she said?
