Give me one fact that will help me in my day-to-day living.
I will start.
Fill gas tank in the early morning. Denser.
Do it for your wife or girlfriend before she even wakes up.
(or while she's cooking your breakfast.)
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.
@ paradigmsearch, I shall hand you, errr, mail you, $3.52 to like me and friend, that IS a bargain.
Unbelievable what a search for 3.52 will bring. Try it.
I would and be glad to do that, but now I am learning how to speak Portuguese.
della and the dealer and a dog named jake and a cat named kalamzo
Well they rolled out west where the wild sun sets and the coyotes howl at the moon . . .take it, paradigmsearch! Yahooooo!
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).
Feel gratitude for the things we have in life. Thank God for life.
BTW: Paradigmsearch was searching for enlightening FACTS.
but +1 anyway!
Paradigm wants to be enlightened. I've given him just the facts Ma'am. It will help him have a better day even if he runs out of gas.
Just the facts.
Write a to-do list before bed so your mind is clear while you sleep.
I will thank the rain for it cleanses my spirit, and I will thank the sun for it cleanses my soul.
One of my favorite life lessons was a picture of a small child sitting on a pot-- saying ""Do your best, and flush the rest."
One interpretation might be to forget and get rid of the negatives. Keep trying.
Wake the wife up a bit early for some stay in the sack time before work

Not original song. Apparently can't be recovered.
… 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.
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.
P.S. Kathryn, your post gave me a hub idea. But I do not know if HP would approve it.
"Confessions of A Shady Mechanic" (hope you will see the almost mention of 'shade tree' mechanic in my hypothetical headline.
even better … the kind without overhead.
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.
I don't see the point either, unless you WANT to catch some strange tropical illness, lose a lot of weight, and be seen on tv naked.
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?"
@ Kathryn . . . Hub, "Confessions From "Ol Roy," A Shady Mechanic," is written, but not ready to publish yet. And I gave you credit at the start for the inspiration for the hub. Is this cool?
It is cool. :-) (But Mr. P inspired me.)
@ Kathryn, well it is up and running. The hub about "Ol Roy," and I think you will approve of it. Gosh how self-promoting that sounded. Forgive me. I just wanted you to know that I appreciate you inspiring me to do this. Maybe ONE person will read this hub and NOT be screwed over by a shady auto mechanic.
And so it goes . . .
Kathryn, I hate to impose on you, but I am going out of town tomorrow and should not be back on here until Wednesday night, but would you tell paradigmsearch that I missed her in this important discussion. Hope that you had a good Memorial Day.
Later . . .
sure, I will tell "her."
Hey, Ms paradigmsearch! Kenneth missed you in this important discussion! Sorry I referred to you as "Mr. P." a couple of posts back. Apparently you are Ms. P.
( Nothing surprises me anymore. I do remember, however, when you announced to the world that you were someone named Lon Morris here in the forums. Sorry, if I believed you. You pretend to be a guy quite well, BTW.)
S -o-o-o-o, you are telling me that paradigmsearch is a GUY? I feel so, so, uhhh, well, stunned and other adjectives like this, but no harm done.
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?
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?
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.
Well, You Too, kenneth! I should be writing more hubs … I really should …
especially now that my name is becoming famous over there
in Hub land --->
(Thanks, btw )
"You are welcome all of the time. Visit HubLand today. Your life will not be the same.
Very True in that all Hubs in HubLand are very revealing, interesting, informative, helpful, enlightening, entertaining ...
I was sincere. You are Cordially Invited to HubLand anytime you like and I will make preparations for you to be treated like royalty.
… what sort of preparations, I wonder?
You are very kind and also very funny. I enjoy your hubs a lot.
@ Kathryn, 1:51 a.m., Thursday, cst, I am very tired
Uhh, some quiet meditation to start. Maybe a bowl of bran flakes with a half grapefruit.
Thank you most-sincerely for your sweet compliment on my hubs. I mean it. No strings. Just a kind thank you to another person I shall call "friend" from this moment forward.
You may visit HubLand anytime . ..FREE. No tickets to buy. No customs to worry about. Not that you would have anything to worry about.
I am headed to ZZZZs for a while. I worked on birdhouses most all of Wednesday afternoon and it is humid where I live in Northwest Alabama.
Talk soon. Deal?
( However, I'm going out of town for two weeks - dog-sitting at a Venice mansion.)
Good. When you arrive, we can meet at an outside café and enjoy Colombian coffee, regular for me, and yours is up to you and we can compare hub ideas. I have two right now. Looking forward to seeing you and I've never met a real dog sitter before. Say if you are not following me, would you be so minded to do that for me? I would appreciate it.
Embrace the past for what it was, good or bad, and look to the future as the opportunity to experience the best your life has to offer. Never look back in anger or regret.
