Life Lessons – by a 95 year old man

When your elders speak, you should listen. At least that’s what my parents taught me, here is a list of life lessons by someone who lived a century of a life time.

1. Life isnصt fair, but itصs still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short not to enjoy it.

4. Your job wonصt take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.

5. Donصt buy stuff you donصt need.

6. You donصt have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.

7. Cry with someone. Itصs more healing than crying alone.

8. Itصs OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for things that matter.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it wonصt screw up the present.

12. Itصs OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Donصt compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldnصt be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eyeة But donصt worry; God never blinks.

16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isnصt useful.ت Clutter weighs you down in many ways.

18. Whatever doesnصt kill you really does make you stronger.

19. Itصs never too late to be happy.ت But itصs all up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, donصt take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Donصt save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Overprepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Donصt wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words, شIn five years, will this matter?ص

27. Always choose Life.

28. Forgive but donصt forget.

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give Time time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Donصt take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didnصt do.

35. Donصt audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative ر dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone elseصs, weصd
grab ours back.

41. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have, not what you think you need.

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield.

45. Life isnصt tied with a bow, but itصs still a gift.

I am not a big fan of our so called Commander in Chief, who clearly lacks leadership skills in every sense of the phrase. This country has not progressed forward since he has been in office, and the policy’s & principles that he has instilled in society have made the US regress as a whole.

Personally, I think we should impeach him and make him give back the Nobel Peace Prize. Then make him apply for a Resident Alien card and immigration VISA.

After that, he must live in Alaska for five years and apply for and use the Obamacare health insurance under his own policy. While he’s in the remote mountains of Alaska, he must hunt & shoot his own food until he runs out of ammunition, Then he must stand in line for hours in order to purchase more.

August Smart Lock: Hope My Front Door Doesn’t Get Hacked

Digital Door Locks….

memoirs on a rainy day

Keys have evolved over the last few years, quite significantly. There are cars which no longer require keys at all, starting at the touch of a button when the key fob is nearby. These days, people like controlling all of their stuff via smartphones, and I think it wouldn’t be a bad idea to control door locks with them. Or not.

The August Smart Lock is a system that allows anyone to enter your home, if they’ve been granted a virtual key.

Video Games Have Influence

Because of the vast increase of shootings, our rights as US citizens are being infringed upon. Is it the guns, the people, who should be responsible for the madness? Parents, the people who raised these children who have become insubordinate are to be held responsible. But only until the child is 18, then who does the responsibility fall upon? The young kids…who should understand that for every action there is a reaction.

The people of the United States for generations have been able to live peacefully, with respect for each other, the constitution, our elderly, and the country in which we live.
I talk to my grandparents and uncles who share the same stories with thousands of men across this nation about going hunting when they were younger, walking around in the middle of nowhere with a shotgun and pockets full of ammunition, with no cellphone or thought of shooting anything else except dinner. Now this type of activity is starting to be frowned upon so much that states are trying to enforce a registration & license for all guns and ammunition as well as put a cap on how much ammunition one person can purchase each month all because of irresponsible kids and bad parenting.

I think the advancement of video game technology with the first person shooting is a direct influence in the increase of shooting sprees at schools and in public areas. I don’t see grandpa or a working parent out there open firing on US citizens…probably because they know better. But these video games with the first person shooting gives young kids the ability to choose whatever weapon they want from their video game stockpile, then open fire on anybody walking down the street, regardless of the tasks set in place by the game.

In these video games, I watch young kids take guns and shoot innocent people on the streets and laugh because they think it’s funny, sometimes they will spend hours with a video game sniper gun looking through a full screen scope on their TV, shooting people in a court yard on the video game….does this sound familiar? Consequently, after a few years of doing this in these games everyday after school, it becomes second nature to them. This is why it is so easy for kids to take a gun to their school or university and reenact what they have been doing for so many years on their video game.

Amendment II: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. (period!)
