When wildlife gets bold

I was having lunch with Mom in the car and noticed the seagulls were unusually bold so I decided to see how bold. If I didn’t value my fingers I’d have had him eating out of the palm of my hand.


Are you doing it your way?

I Did It My Way
That was a big hit for Frank Sinatra, but it’s not the way we were designed to do it. In that song the words include:

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels and not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows and did it my way!

Which is Best?

A friend asked today which computer she should get. Many of her friends replied with Apple without even getting to know WHY she needs a computer. Now, mind you, I don’t necessarily disagree with them but it doesn’t go far enough. My answer was:

For years I have heard a saying used to describe two people, usually guys, who are so much alike they are said to be “twin brothers from a different mother.” Of course this is a silly term because twins are by definition from the same mother.

If we are Christlike then our characters are similar… Just like twins we have individual personalities but like family members there are similarities that let’s one know we are related.

Next time you hear a phrase like this “in the world” stop to look at it from a new perspective. It may surprise you how much the world has but don’t have a clue because of their perspective.

Boston Tea Party Historic Event

The interesting thing about perspectives is that they change. Two hundred years ago the Boston tea party represented a protest against taxation without representation. Today if one says tea party they think of the political movement.

To me I think of the historic museum and ships in Boston!

On December 16th, 2012, the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum will be offering free admission from 10 AM to 1 PM in preparation for the annual reenactment of the Boston tea party.
