Sleep Aids

A doctor that had been seeing an 80-year-old woman for most of her life finally retired. At her next checkup, the new doctor told her to bring a list of all the medicines that had been prescribed for her. As the doctor was looking through these his eyes grew wide as he realized Grandma had a prescription for birth control pills.gty_birth_control_pills_ll_120117_mn
“Mrs. Smith, do you realize these are birth control pills?”
“Yes, they help me sleep at night.”
“Mrs. Smith, I assure you there is absolutely nothing in these that could possibly help you sleep!”
She reached out and patted the young doctor’s knee and said, “Yes, dear, I know that. But every morning, I grind one up and mix it in the glass of orange juice that my 16-year-old Granddaughter drinks. And believe me it definitely helps me sleep at night.”
You gotta love Grandmas!

Thanks, Carla

On Getting Things Done

Back-Up Plan

I saw this tip  the other day on the page of a guy whose father (Dave Brindle)  was a fellow police officer with my father (Leonard Visotski)  at the Hillside, NJ Police Dept back in the 1960’s.

A few days earlier, we were commenting on a post and we began connecting the dots and remembered each other’s dad and had fun seeing who could remember the most names from that era.  That is one of the things I have really enjoyed about FB, connecting with the past while staying current.

Thanks to Mike Brindle for this helpful, hosuekeeping tip.

Think About The Times . . .

Packing to move sucks. Packing to move six months after you last moved really sucks, except that some things are still in boxes from last time.

But, everything is better with music.

Scrolling through some play lists, I  remembered it had been a while since I listened to any early Poco.

Here are two songs from the Deliverin’ Album, which in my humble opinion s one of the best live records ever made.  Any other middle-aged Poco fans out there?unknown

Time to smile amongst the suckiness.

Bouncing Around

Every once in a while, a song gets in my head, bounces around and can’t get out.

Today’s entry is Deep Purple’s “Lazy”   Ian’s introduction states that the iconic Machine Head Album, (with Smoke On The Water) was still a few weeks from release.

This qualifies as a gem for anyone who is a Deep Purple fan.  Listen to Ritchie and the late, Jon Lord  back in the early days. . .  45 years ago!

Wrapping It Up, Pt. II

Wrapping It Up, Pt.1 can be found here.

Pt. II:  Last year, on May 13th,  I began reading “The One Year Daily Insights With Zig Ziglar and Dr. Ike Reighard. The book had been recomended by a friend and there has not been a single day that I have not meditated on the daily reading. It is usually the very first thing I do after feeding and taking the dogs out.  It is a habit.

I have heard that “Coincidence is when God does a miracle, but wants to remain anonymous.”      unknown-1

This snippit from today’s insight might be a coincidence, but then again . . .

Prison or Classroom

Life is all about perspective. If we see difficult people and painful situations as threats, they become prisons for our souls. Like inmates at medieval dungeons, we languish away for days and weeks, wishing the problem would just go away, or we try frantically to get out any way we can.

Whether our problems are caused by our own dumb mistakes, the sins of others, natural disasters, or anything else, our difficulties can, instead of dungeons, become classrooms where we learn life’s greatest lessons — if we’ll pay attention to them.

Taken from January 14, Daily Insights.

Attention being paid.
