INTRO TO THIS WEEK
In thinking about life, I’m always thinking–
“I’m just getting started.”
Having this in mind
keeps me young.
There is so much that life has to offer.
Not wanting to turn into an “adult”.

To be a good writer you must do a lot of reading.
In reading today I came upon a word that is strange to me.
Crazy
to me that, “whatsoever”, was made a word. Whycouldn’tthisalsobemadeaword?
Once again, the English language is a strange creature.

Not a lot happened this week, yet, I hope my words inspire you. Love and caring are such important things in life. I hope you are finding enough love for you.
========================
From my book series, Beyond Your Potential >>

Love, is so important in life, toward others and yourself.

As I was coming back from various changes in my life, there were times when I became angry with myself; self-blame, and such. But, I knew I had to count on myself and like myself.

Each of us is the one we have to like the most and be the friendliest with (although, I like you a lot, too.) I’ve known people who have never even spoken to their next-door neighbor. Others walk through a store, passing hundreds of people, and not once make eye contact or say “hi” to someone they pass.

So simple to be pleasant, to acknowledge someone in a friendly way, but there are so many of us who do not. I BELIEVE THE FRIENDLIER WE ARE TO ONE ANOTHER, THE BETTER A WORLD WE WILL LIVE IN FOR ALL OF US.

Love and passion are words that are often used together. When you bring on true love, I believe we need to bring on passion and make this person the most important in life.

I love you, Beth.

Many people do find this passion, but, after time, they allow it to slip away. I’m not just writing of a lover in our life; I mean we have to make people important enough in our life to bring on this passion of love.

Right now, I am writing about friendship-love, romantic-love is a different thing. We can have many friendship-love relationships over time. I think the more that everyone can have of this sort the better the world will be.

The more friendship-love you can bring into your life, the happier you can be in life. This friendship-love, for many people, is the only love that sustains and protects them through disasters, accidents, and bleak times of desolation.

Remember, the more love you show, the more love you get.

LIFE IS HAPPENING ALL THE TIME – ARE YOU KEEPING UP?

********************
WORDS TO INSPIRE YOU! >>
Inspirational quotes and motivational sayings have an amazing ability to change the way we feel about life and can change our thinking.

I find them so interesting, challenging, and important on our path to joy and happiness and finding ways to inspire ourselves and others.

Inspirational quotes and ideas give us a quick and timely burst of wisdom to get our focus back, offering the inspiration needed for the day or occasion.

I hope to inspire you with my words.

Words have power.

At any age, you can (and should) make changes to make your life better.

How you think and feel about yourself, including your beliefs and expectations about what is possible for you, determines everything that happens in your life. It all derives from your quality of thinking.

When you improve the quality of your thinking,
you change the quality of your life—sometimes instantly!

Just as positive words can make someone smile, and/or a well-timed amusing quote can make someone laugh, your thoughts react to the world in real-time. You have this control!

You have complete control over only one thing in the universe — Your Thinking — and that’s where motivational quotes come in!

To keep your motivation, you have to use each day as an opportunity for improvement, to be better, and to get closer to your goals. It might sound like a lot of work—and with your busy schedule—next to impossible. But you can do it!

Self-talk is so important—THINK RIGHT!
Motivational words, yes, they’re just words.
But they’re positive words; they will keep you on track.

Remember, you are only as young as the last time you changed your mind.

Keep your thoughts and self-talk fun and productive, and always reach for more advancement.

REMEMBER
Even if you start late, are uncertain,
and/or different.
YOU CAN STILL FIND SUCCESS!


VERY LITTLE IS NEEDED TO MAKE A GREAT LIFE.

MY DAILY JOTTINGS >>

8/22—Today I worked on the rabbit hutch, which is in the 10×10 previous dog kennel. So, this is a hutch I built that is inside a big kennel. We put Clementine in the new hutch, she can be very mean with other rabbits, so, she is alone in the cage.

A strange thing, Clementine pulled and used her fur to build a nest for babies! We
know of no way she could have become pregnant, but she is acting like a momma. We will let you know the outcome later.

8/23—Curious today. We had the TV on and Jemma was actually watching. The show was something about dogs, with some dog sounds. We just found it very unusual that this happened. Have you ever seen something like this occur?

You can watch this about dogs and TV >>

Where our house is there is much nature, having a forest right behind the house. Today we came upon a bright green spider, it was magnificent.

You can see, in the photo, the spider is in my hand. In my research later, I learned that this spider is quite poisonous, whoops. No, I did not eat the spider and get poisoned, and the spider did not bite me to poison me.

8/24—We met Nelson recently, who sharpens chainsaws; ours needed sharpening, so that is how we met. I had just made some, so I brought him some of my salsa.

It ended up that he likes hot, so I made some of my hot salsa and, also, extra hot. He and his wife were cooking up Mexican for dinner, so, perfect timing.

8/25—As you can see from the photo, our plants are not doing very well. Something is eating them all up! But, then again, our flowers are doing quite well. I would rather not use any harsh chemicals, any ideas? Then I thought about next year and how I will put netting over the garden.

I’ve been practicing my juggling!
Things are going smoother and even-textured. My brain to hand connection has been ins
ufficient, but I am pushing and seeing improvement. That makes me happy.

8/26—It’s already Friday, again!

I love living here. Looking out my office window I see our front yard and garden. Then, twenty feet out I see the small road to Don and Teresa’s (our only neighbors.) Then comes their fence and the horse area beyond.

Weeded the flower bed for Bethie, mainly because I am such a great husband.

=====================
I finished
building the last of the current gardens I am constructing. As you know, I make these with free pallets I can get. I make these at a height so you can sit on when they are built. So much fun to watch plants grow—yes?

The process to build the garden, which you can do, too, is this >>
Using six pallets, measure and cut each of the six at 22”. Then I use 3” dry wall screws to hold the
six pallets together.

Next, I
use a staple gun to put plastic on all the insides of the pallets to hold the dirt in. Then, green paint is applied to all sides. To finish them I put on 2”x6” wood on top, which I… stained beforehand.

If you have any questions about the pallet garden or the rainwater collection,
give me a call, and I will gladly help >> 610-400-3233.

Because of all the major changes currently in the world, we all must prepare for a different future. I am hearing (and seeing) that it will become difficult to obtain food to nourish ourselves. I am preparing now; Beth and I will grow our vegetables and feed ourselves.

Along with that, I just ordered a 100-gallon holder for rainwater. Already there are places where it is becoming difficult to find H2O, so I am preparing. I already installed a 50-gallon container; it fills very quickly
in rains and is always full.

I built a five-foot stand for the rain collector to sit on so that the water can come out with the pull of gravity. You place the stand next to one of the downspouts of one of the gutters on your house. Then, you cut and place the downspout into the rain collector.

We will use rainwater to water the garden. Later I will make and hook up a filter, so we can drink the water. We checked it, and the rainwater is already safe to drink.
===================
Across the way, the horses have such a vast area to find grass to eat and hang out. About once a day, they come to the fence, right in front of me, and wait for me to bring out a treat. Usually, carrots, which Jemma eats, too.

YA-AAH!–Today happens to be National Toilet Paper Day!
I was so looking forward to this day (although I just found out about it.)
Not sure how to celebrate, oh shit.

    Kit – I left a comment on National Toilet Paper Day video and here it is – “Toilet paper is a monument to aggressive marketing of a totally unnecessary product. In much of the so-called “Third World” people use a much more civilized method for cleaning their butts. It is called water. If you spilled chocolate sauce on your hairy forearm would you wipe it off with a piece of toilet paper, or rinse it with water? Duh. So in the Philippines, for instance, every toilet has a water source nearby (a sink or a faucet or a bucket full of water) and a plastic scoop with a handle. When you are finished doing your business you use the scoop to pour water on your butt and wipe it clean with your hand. Then you wash your hands with soap. Filipinos mock us for having stinky butts because they thoroughly wash theirs, but we just wipe and smear with lots of residual “dingleberries.” Bidets are what the Japanese use, the “upscale” version of the plastic scoop. We waste millions of trees and dollars every year on this totally ridiculous product. Think about it.”
