    Smile I need to apreciate what I have more,,,,,,we all do,,,

    I think I am blessed,or someone is watching over me,or something good is going on,

    because

    I have good health,I have a good job,I have a wife that loves me,I have the things that I want,I love going to Hawaii often,I'm lucky to have all that.

    and with all this going on in just our little SG world with Ken & Shinobi & Humboldt,

    I need to remember to take time to smell the flowers and appreciate my good fortune.

    I also think we should all appreciate what we have and hold on to it,tell the ones you love how much you love them EVERYDAY !

    Hi Dan

    A heart attack in 1982 had me rethinking my life & lifestyle. From then on i tried to let those i cared for know i loved them and it also gave me the courage to let those i did not care for to leave my life.

    Life is too temporary to burden yourself with wasting time & emotions on those who do not respect you, your loved ones or your ideals.

    Smile when you can & live each day to the fullest is something i pay daily attention too.

    Focus on what you have and you will be happy.

    Like you Dan, I am also very blessed. Alive and reasonably well.

    Cheers to you, my friend.

    Well, said Dan.

    Spend time with family. They won't always be there.

    My dad has a cancerous cyst in the roof of his mouth. He also needs knee and wrist surgery. The doc told him they would remove the cyst first because he might not need the other surgeries.

    WTF!

    Reminds me of a bad joke.

    Guy goes to the doctor because he's feeling terrible.

    Doctor gives him a bottle of pills and says hopefully these will help but he'll have to take them for the rest of his life.

    The guy looks at the bottle and it says...No Refills.
