Thankful Thursday, I won I won

Well I was hoping to continue with "I won the lottery" but that didn't happen. I am still thankful though for so many things and to tell the truth I am not sure I could handle that much money. It just might change me and I am pretty happy with who I am right now. Today I am thankful for my attitude. Over the past few months and every day at work, I see people with bad attitudes. For some reason they feel the need to be negative about everything in their lives. Nothing is ever good enough for them. Most likely these are some of the ones that only play the lottery when it is over 500 million because 20 million just isn't enough for them. And if the truth were known they would most likely not be satisfied with the 500 million if they did win. Hey if I find 20 dollars on the street you will be able to see me smiling from miles away. So why are all these people so down? I really think it all comes down to choice. If I look back at my life's events, I could find a reason to hate or be unhappy about lots of things. I have had some pretty bad things happen to me and I could have easily turned those things into reasons to be unhappy. But I decided instead to look at those events as learning events and instead of pouting about them I analyzed them and found a way to better myself or change to avoid the same situation. Life is all about choices and we can't blame them on others. We must take responsibility for our actions and go on with our life. And I chose to go though life happy. Have a great day, Greg

On the road again.

Yes it’s true. I am back and as they say badder than ever. Or should that be gooder than ever? I am not sure which one is more correct. I never was one that cared for English. It was too gray for me. I preferred math and science because those subjects were black and white. English has degrees of correctness and is subject to interpretation. For instance on those college exams where they said; Which sentence is more correct? “More correct?” Excuse me….they should either be right or wrong. Or is that write or wrong? Whatever. Anywhoo, after a long time away I am back to blogging again. According to the Mayans, the word will run out of time on 12/12/12. So instead of 27 shopping days until Christmas, shouldn’t it be 15? I doubt if there will be stores in heaven so those of you who are waiting may want to get on the ball and literally shop till you drop or should I say all drop. But seriously, here is my take on this whole Mayan end of the world theory. If they were so smart why aren’t they still here? I think they just ran out of 1’s and 2’s like the gas stations did when the prices went over 1 dollar and 2 dollars. Apparently we are on our way towards somewhere called the fiscal cliffs. As I stated before, I really don’t know where they are and going to Google maps was no help at all. Judging from what I have heard, if we fall off these cliffs it will be devastating so I am guessing that they must be in the Rockies somewhere. The eastern mountains are much more gradually sloped. Apparently we are all heading toward these cliffs and we are all going to fall off like a bunch of lemmings if we continue on this path. I don’t know about the rest of you but I am going to make sure and buckle up just in case. The president says that we need to tell our senators and congressmen to steer clear of these cliffs. I have a better idea. What say we have all politicians jump first to make sure it is safe and then the rest of us can follow if we feel like it. Have a great day, Greg
