I Can Relate!

***Saw this story about baking fails, and may I just say....that would be me.

You get the idea. :-)

***More fatal crashes in Colorado since pot legalized? My goodness, who could have seen this coming?

Two new University of Colorado studies paint an ominous picture of the direction of the state since marijuana commercialization, but neither provides conclusive evidence that legal pot is causing harm.
One study shows more drivers involved in fatal car accidents in Colorado are testing positive for marijuana — and that Colorado has a higher percentage of such drivers testing positive for pot than other states even when controlled for several variables. But the data the researchers use does not reveal whether those drivers were impaired at the time of the crash or whether they were at fault.
"The primary result of this study may simply reflect a general increase in marijuana use during this ... time period in Colorado," the study's authors write.

Right. Couldn't possibly be a correlation. (rolling eyes)

***Rodgers & Hammerstein Collection at Amazon. I could spend a day watching these!

***Dick Morris: Elizabeth Warren can beat Hillary Clinton in 2016. What a choice. What's the measuring stick, who's the biggest liar?

***This is really sad. This girl landed a modeling gig with L'Oreal, but was fired after posting a hunting picture of herself with her kill. Must be politically correct, mustn't we? I don't buy L'Oreal products anyway, and I sure won't start now. Do as they believe you should, or you're trash! I sure hope these execs don't eat beef or wear leather.


***One of my favorites:

A Psalm of Life

Tell me not, in mournful numbers,
Life is but an empty dream!
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
And things are not what they seem.

Life is real! Life is earnest!
And the grave is not its goal;
Dust thou art, to dust returnest,
Was not spoken of the soul.

Not enjoyment, and not sorrow,
Is our destined end or way;
But to act, that each to-morrow
Find us farther than to-day.

Art is long, and Time is fleeting,
And our hearts, though stout and brave,
Still, like muffled drums, are beating
Funeral marches to the grave.

In the world’s broad field of battle,
In the bivouac of Life,
Be not like dumb, driven cattle!
Be a hero in the strife!

Trust no Future, howe’er pleasant!
Let the dead Past bury its dead!
Act,— act in the living Present!
Heart within, and God o’erhead!

Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time;

Footprints, that perhaps another,
Sailing o’er life’s solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again.

Let us, then, be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait.



***I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read and all the friends I want to see. ~John Burroughs

***Have a great day!
