Quotes from the World for Thursday 12/13/MMXII

The great man knew not that he was great. It took a century or two for that fact to appear. What he did, he did because he must; it was the most natural thing in the world, and grew out of the circumstances of the moment. But now, every thing he did, even to the lifting of his finger or the eating of bread, looks large, all-related, and is called an institution.

Quotes from the World for Wednesday 12/12/MMXII

If we confine ourselves to one life role, no matter how pleasant it seems at first, we starve emotionally and psychologically. We need a change and balance in our daily lives. We need sometimes to dress up and sometimes to lie around in torn jeans. . . . Even a grimy factory can afford some relief from a grimy kitchen and vice versa.

It’s 25

Good Morning & Happy Wednesday,

Do you know what I’m talking about?

Today is Wednesday 12/12/V3.3 & it is a With All Due Respect Day.

IF you’re in Omaha and you were parked illegal, or didn’t have proper tags. YOU may have been towed. I hope that everything is okay,

Today is an 11 hour day & that is my short day. You know it’s hard when 11/24ths of your day is short. Tomorrow is just a IX – hour day. From 11.00 to 20.00 at the City.

The word of the day is adiaphorous which is doing neither good nor harm.

I hope you make it a GREAT Day.
