Einstein Said it Best...

...when he said that "Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them.” When confronted by difficulties elevate your method of problem solving a notch higher.

Reilly's frustration with Lloyd grew from the fact that it
was a real mistake to think you could solve any problem
with just potatoes.

No Salmonella Here, Thank You Very Much...

The tasks you do everyday - the repetition, the mind-numbing actions that you do without thinking - are the very things that make your world work. We are each a critical gear in the machinery of life and others depend on our being there. Don't let them down.

Everyday after work Mimi picked up a dozen eggs.

Best in Show

Invest in yourself. You have potential that you're unaware of, abilities that will surprise you. Your little self is your most valuable asset.

Hank thought that short of Christmas lights and a silk
kimono he would NEVER be a show horse. But his friends
believed and he loved the attention.

All Aboard!

When your goal is a moving target, it is less likely to be met. Anchor your hopes to something solid and immovable.

Ever since Marietta was designated as the bus stop
passengers were never sure if they were going to
get on the bus.

The Wisest Words are Unspoken

During times of stress or high emotion we become our own worst enemy. Don't take counsel from your frustrations, but rather gather information (listen) before you make judgments and decisions.

Mimi had the Right to remain silent, but she didn't have
the Ability to remain silent!

Mercy! You is a Heavy Burden...

Some of us are producers and some are consumers. We are fat with consumers and thin on producers. At some point this lopsided state is going to fail us all. Brush up on your survival skills....

In her private place in the woods Marietta didn't give a thought
to 'butter-fat content', but pondered, instead, the fall of
the Roman Empire.

I'm Not Feelin' Good About This...

We all have the innate ability to recognize evil. Listen to those small promptings that alert you to trouble ahead.

Perhaps it was intuition, perhaps just her imagination,
Collette always felt nervous around food-grade,
plastic coated
paper buckets.

Through a Lens Darkly

There are times when it is necessary to look at things in a different way. A new perspective can open up new worlds. Ah, the wonder of a new pair of eyes!!

Reilly couldn't understand why everyone was going
nuts. The stupid movie was dull as dish water.

Two Steps Forward, One Step Back...

Progression is sometimes slower and more complicated than we had anticipated. Begin with a clear plan, work out all the missteps on paper and then execute with diligence.

To pay for cable Randy took on a second job. Ironically it
used up all his TV hours.
