No.18

"Difference in age, my dear? Well, yes. But you also might consider a vast difference in wealth."
***
1. Borrow only enough...to live within your income.
***
2.  Money can't buy happiness...but it can buy some great ways  to pass the time.
***

 3.  You don't have to be crazy to work here...just very disturbed will do.
***
4. Politics is a blood sport...using your blood.
***

5. It's the trees that keep us... from seeing the forest.
***
6. The best place to win hearts and minds...is at the office water cooler.
***
7. Sex Education is probably not a good idea... children today are too busy to teach the parents.
***
8. I got in touch with my inner child...but he doesn't talk to strangers.
***
9. With all problems...some assembly is required.
***
10. Your 20/20 hindsight is as good... as your 00/00 forethought.
***

TEA TIME.
Most tea contains about a quarter the caffeine as coffee.
***
White tea is just steamed and dried. It contains more
antioxidants than green tea and less caffeine.
***
Black tea is the same tea just fermented for a good while.
***
Green tea is not fermented at all. The leaves are just rolled
 and stored.
***
Oolong tea is midway between black tea and green tea in fermentation.
***


Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.
***
Oscar Wilde

We are the makers of dreams,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
World lovers and world forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams,
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever, it seems.


 By Arthur William Edgar O'Shaughnessy, 19th Century poet

We Could Have Been Called:

The United States of Amerigo Vespucci instead of The United States of America.  It was that close. But that is where the name "America"
comes from. Look it up.

Hello my friend,
Once again, another fascinating, clever list. Indeed, it took..'Skill, Baby, Skill!'
Have a peaceful week.
Kind wishes, Gary.

Strutz is a handsome beast. I love how unimpressed cats are with us -unless we've got a can opener and a can of tuna ;)

I loved no. 9 - so very very true and yet it always feels like they just happened and we had no hand in them at all.

Heraclitus was very very wise. A wonderful quote.

More please, my good sir. :)

Hello there. Is this blog inspired by Asleigh Brilliant , author of "I feel much better now that I've given up hope" and "Appreciate me now and avoid the rush"? Just curious.

As you know, I have been on vacation and that time will soon end, so I slipped over to visit and I had such a good time reading your list.

Love and peace be unto thee dear friend,
TiTi

A brilliant batch, dear Count. "It's the trees that keep us...from seeing the forest." Love that. And old Oscar and Heraclitus thrown in to add a pinch of spice.
