              Call a friend whom you have argued with during the day and you feel bad at leaving things in an unsettled way. Find a way to let the friend know that you still think of them as a friend for as we all know . . .Life Is Short.

      2. Learn to accept the things I cannot change,
      Courage to change the things I can,
      And wisdom to know the difference.
      Ok I stole that from a prayer, but it is a good one.

      3. Start our day with a good breakfast.

      4. Have a plan, follow it but learn to be adaptable to changing conditions.

      5. You can't make people fall in love or obey you (no matter how long you keep them locked up in the Basement).

      … we read quickly past the word "facts" Sorry, pardigmsearch.

      here is a fact: Not all cars run well on 91 octane gas. Depends on your motor. Find out if you have a high octane burning engine or not. Some don't and do better on less octane burning fuel. I read that in an auto mechanics book …
      Also I learned from this book that a good mechanic is one who will prevent your death by doing a perfect job on your car.
      People are so concerned about being gouged by auto mechanics, but maybe we should appreciate them more and not begrudge them what we pay them. Our lives are in their hands.
      On the other hand they do tend take advantage of the ignorant. sad

        kenneth averyposted 6 months ago in reply to this

        Kathryn, but the "fact" remains that mechanics who Do gouge unsuspecting men and women give the ones you are writing about a very bad name.

              Changing our topic for a moment, okay, paradigmsearch? Talk about senseless, pointless acts in life, the Discovery Channel's "Naked and Afraid," no prize money or cars given to those who last 21 days in almost-lifeless areas of the earth. Aside from proving that they have the right stuff to endure such hardships naked on national TV, what is the point?

                I just watched Zoolander 2. Its the end of the world, I guess. What a junky movie. What is it about human nature that we get worse and worse? and in the name of what? freedom? hilarity? daringness? some sort of twisted sense of greatness? some sort of audaciousness?

                If there is any decency left, it is in small tidbits as presented in that movie and it did end happily ever after, true to a Hollywood ending. But to get there do we really need to be introduced to the concept of orgy-love (a group of misfits including Kiefer Sutherland(!)) and multiple pregnancies therein caused by one of the main characters, (Hansel)? We really need to be introduced to the concept of ripping out the heart of a sacrificial child for the purpose of obtaining everlasting youth? And this poor kid was told of the sexual details regarding threesome activities between his mother and father, Derick Zoolander and Hansel and was told that he was a mistake. We really need to see gruesome acts of violence which lead to no bleeding, no consequences? What a ridiculous movie and a wretched one for the youth. It was stock full of celebrities. Why would they take part in such a movie? Justin Bieber who was mercilessly machined gunned down in the opening scene, Sting, Katy Perry and others.

                Here is a fact to enlighten you:
                No one should waste their time seeing this movie. (Some laughs from SNL crew members (including Kristen Wigg) but really not worth it.) My rating: A Dud.

                  Happy Memorial Day, Kathryn, and I agree with everything you said in this post. To enlighten you, I AM going to write the hub YOU inspired: "Confessions of  a Shady Mechanic," and how they prey on women, but THIS IS NOT a piece to spotlight or insinuate how some women are not that educated on how to deal with a mechanic, but to "enlighten," if you will, and if I can. And I will, at the start of the hub, give YOU full credit.

                  this is exactly my point. There is NO point and yes, unless you have this uncontrollable urge to get a serious tropical disease, almost starve, and be seen by millions who are mostly asking like you and I, "why?"

        okay, kenneth avery. How do you not know that paradigmsearch is a guy. Everyone around here is quite aware that paradigmsearch is not a female. Just recently gm williams referred to paradigmsearch as Mr. Paradigm. And I do believe she of all of us should know. Plus if you go to his sites, you will realize you are wrong. In fact, you seem to be helping him with free curiosity clicks! Or did you charge him $3.52? lol

          kenneth averyposted 6 months ago in reply to this

          Kathryn,
          I have not and will not lie to you. I did NOT know that paradigmsearch was a guy. I do not visit these forums all that much, I just thought by one of (his) posts that he was a female. I am sorry for the confusion.
          As for free curiosity clicks, are you kidding me?
          $3.52? Really?
          I think I have had an eye-opening experience in here tonight all thanks to you.
          P.S. the "Confessions of 'Roy," a Shady Auto Mechanic," is getting comments like gangbusters and I will take gangbusters' comments all day long.
          Long live you and your hubs, Kathryn.
