Free for all Friday. Also, 7 other — wait, that's redundant.
I love me a good free for all, especially on a Friday. Thank you, Bill, for including my link to The Peak’s newsletter today. I love it!
My 11th grade English teacher shared a saying I still remember to this day (I’m 50 now, almost 51), “Money can’t buy love, but it can rent you a good time.”
Sitting in a North Providence,RI Emergency unit last night, (If there’s any fun in that but happy outcome), I was amazed to see the attention given to upcoming St Patrick’s Day. From shamrock-covered scrubs to elaborate head pieces and people saying, “I’m really not Irish, I’m Italian, but I love a good time!”Happiness is where you find it or let it find you. You just have to jump in!
Coming from the lower end of the income spectrum and the higher end of the age spectrum, I like to say that I’ve found happiness comes with contentment. To qualify, I’m not talking about laziness, but enjoying what I do and everything around me. Though I’m politically active, I don’t tend to take things personally and have stopped worrying about things I can’t control. So, I guess my point is that happiness. Doesn’t depend on money, but on your attitude toward your life.
Another great Free for All Friday! Thanks Bill! Have a great weekend!
As for naming American food? How about “More Bulk for your Buck”
HSPD Murphy 🍀🍀🍀 thank you, have a great weekend !!
After reading Ramona Grigg’s complete article in Constant Comment, I was inspired to suggest researching the topic of grief. Not just losing a loved one but losing anything you cherish.
I recommend reading “The Beauty of Dusk” by Frank Bruni who dealt with partial vision loss.
As Ramona wrote, “I’ve told you before that writing about my life out loud is a new thing for me, and I’m not always comfortable while I’m doing it. But I’m doing it because I realize now, as a widow, that there is comfort in reading or hearing someone else’s story about grief. We need to know we’re not alone in this.”
Hi, thank you for mentioning about the pay walls. I find it really frustrating to be teased with a snippet of information and then cannot read the article. May I suggest that when you quote the source in blue letters that you add beside it that there is a pay wall and then we will avoid the annoyance of clicking on it to find we have to pay. Thank you Bill
Can’t say you didn’t warn us about the sports photos. Wow!
Great collection again today Bill and Happy St. Paddy’s Day! Not to worry, I’m Irish too, and I tend to forget a bit as well. Though not so much that I forget it’s also our anniversary! 😊💚🍀
The saying “money can’t buy happiness” has always bothered me. The stress that comes with scraping by, living paycheck to paycheck, no extra for savings, and then even if you seem to start moving up, one thing can happen and smack you right back where you started or worse. It certainly takes a toll on both happiness and health, no doubt about it, at least in my experience.
Oh my gosh, Bill, I love that you've done this, and that you've included a piece of mine in your wonderful, eclectic Friday collection. Tons of new visitors came my way, a happy surprise after a gloomy day.
I love what you do here, and I'm thrilled to be even a tiny part of it. Thanks again!
Oh Bill, I love the picture you used today. Do you happen to know where it is? Just asking. No biggie if it’s a stock photo.
