ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
OCTOBER 27th, 2010
If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side
And it is NAVY Day
This was selected as Navy Day because it's the birthday of President Theodore Roosevelt, a major supporter and former assistant secretary of the Navy. Since 1775 the Navy has been the sea branch of the US armed forces and today we thank all of our Navy personnel for their service
On Navy Day, give some well deserved attention to your proud U.S. Navy, and to the sailors who serve our country.......Salute!
Your attitude about who you are and what you have is a very little thing that makes a very big difference.
Believe you can and you're halfway there
Love begins at home whether it be a bungalow, cottage, condo, or mansion. Putting up with one another is a fact of married or community life. The annoying habits of others can sometimes grate on our nerves and destroy relationships. Patience and understanding will put our declared love and loyalty into practice.
NEW IN THE KITCHEN
The navy bean got its current popular name because it was a staple food of the United States Navy in the early 20th century. These small white beans are perfect for making baked beans.

Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds.
Much has been given to me. as the good Lord blessed me with lots and lots of family and friends. My heart is often overflowing with the love of all of them.
My hands have been very busy making things for them too. I'm feeling pretty good as I've now finished 2 of my gifts for Christmas and have 5 more 1/3 the way done. I'm also working on my 2nd friendship shawl.
The wind was really whipping here yesterday, but I was inside the entire day so that was ok. Today won't be so windy but much cooler and once again I think I'll spend the day inside.
COUNTING THE DAYS
Nine-tenths of wisdom is being wise in time
55 DAYS UNTIL WINTER!
59 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
170 DAYS UNTIL CAMPING SEASON BEGINS
Keep looking ON THE BRIGHT SIDE of things.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone near…
