Great Orators of intellectual Superiority.


Great Orators of intellectual Superiority.

Please pay specific attention to the political party represented. It does make a difference when you feel that common sense is important politically. I might add that over 50% of American voters will have no idea what I am talking about. If you are unsure ask a Conservative. Most Liberals are as illinformed as you are.      C Brewer

Great orators from the past:

“One man with courage makes a majority.”

~ Andrew Jackson

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”

~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

“The buck stops here.”

~ Harry S. Truman

“Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.”

~ John F. Kennedy

Great Orators of the recent past:

“It depends what your definition of ‘is’ is?”

~ William Jefferson Clinton

“Those rumors are false. I believe in the sanctity of marriage.”

~ John Edwards

“What difference does it make?” (re: Benghazi)

~ Hillary Clinton

“I invented the Internet.”

~ Al Gore

“America is, is no longer, uh, what it, uh, could be, uh, what it was once was, uh, and I say to myself, uh, I don’t want that future, uh, for my children.”

~ Barack Obama

“I have campaigned in all 57 states.”

~ Barack Obama (Quoted 2008)

“You don’t need God anymore; you have us Democrats.”

~ Nancy Pelosi (Quoted 2006)

“Paying taxes is voluntary.”

~ Sen. Harry Reid

“Bill is the greatest husband and father I know. No one is more faithful, true, and honest than he is.”

~ Hillary Rodham Clinton (Quoted 1998)

“You have a business. You didn’t build that. Someone else did!”

~ Barack Obama (Quoted 2012)

And the most ridiculous gem of wisdom, from the “Mother Superior Moron”:

“We just have to pass the Health Care Bill, to see what’s in it.”

~ Nancy Pelosi   (Quoted March, 2010 )

(As one Doctor said: “That is also the perfect definition of a stool sample.”)

Beyond a doubt, the greatest statement of all was made by Democrat House Speaker

Sam Rayburn at the first Congressional session after Ted Kennedy was caught, on camera, having sex with one of his aides on the deck of his yacht  ….

“Ah see that the good Senatuh from the great state of Massutwoshits has changed his position on off-shore drillin’.”


“My fear is if North Korea nukes us, Trump is gonna get us into a war.”

~ Maxine Waters (Quoted 2017)

Intellectual honesty is important, even to the honest voter or at least it was before votes were bought and paid for by the Progressive-Liberal Demoncrats of today.  C Brewer




My friend, Ron Jenkins, who has also traveled the world during his Air Force career is a wonderful writer. He stays abreast of the major happenings and has a solid conservative mind. He submitted this deeply common sense article to a newspaper in San Antonio where he lives. He has given me the option to print his work on my blog every time he writes anything. He bores into his work with great analysis of whatever subject that motivates his interest. I am proud to post his work on my blog so others can agree or disagree  with facts.                      Clyde Brewer


Mass shootings: causes and solutions.  Unfortunately, there are as many causes for these horrific shootings as there are are individuals with a cause or a gripe or an issue or with a mental problem.  No single solution can  solve the crime of killing your fellow man (or woman), in a nation where the ownership of a weapon is a right and is virtually unrestricted and unlimited, to any citizen, except to those with a felony conviction.  As gun owner, a marksman, a hunter, a former military member and a concerned citizen, I am leaning toward the enhancement of restrictions on legal, as well as illegal, gun ownership.  
We all know that the main reason we lock our house or car, is to foil a non-professional criminal.  Similarly, no single approach to gun control is going to succeed in preventing the acquisition of a firearm by an otherwise “normal” person, who may have a mental, emotional coping and adjustment problem.  There should to be a coordinated public effort to encourage family members, friends and relatives, to seek and receive help from the legal (law enforcement), medical and psychiatric communities.    
I accept that the 2nd Constitutional Amendment allows the people of this nation to bear arms.  Unfortunately, for well over 200 years, the changes in technology, society and the makeup of a highly diverse populace, have dictated that changes to the law of the land, should be enacted, from a common sense point of view. Therefore, the US Congress must develop a national policy and a series of laws that apply to all 50 states. These laws must apply to all US residents, citizen or alien, adult, minor and/or felon.  It must be a national effort because the mish mash of 50 diverse state laws, cannot help but create loop holes and exceptions, as well as jurisdictional issues, across state and national borders.
Our collective local, state and federal governments must ensure that only responsible legal, sane, adult citizens are licensed to buy, own and use, any and all fire arms.  With every right comes an equal responsibility.
Ron Jenkins


We all need to help Trump start and maintain the pumps.

Congresspersons have become nothing more than greedy power whores, thriving with the lavish gifts from the hoard of  lobbyist that did not even exist until after WWII. Although there are no numbers to evaluate I suspect that there are more lobbyist in Washington D.C. and the 50 State capitols than there are members in all of our military services. Money and other presents may not buy everyone but you can be certain if it is enough it will to buy a majority of votes.

It took a while longer but next they bowed to the unions and allowed our Federal Government employees to be protected by unions. When Congress allowed this monster to be created they really started the deficit alligator to join in on the downhill slide. If our Congress and Presidents can’t be fair to its employees they should resign. It would be interesting to see how the costs of government employees has increased in relationship to industrial workers

Another interesting comparison would be to see another cost breakdown. This would be the nonmilitary government employee cost to purchase and provide everything necessary to support the military today, versus what it costs in 1945 during a world war. Where did the thousands of Defense Department employees work during WWII when there was no Pentagon. Never forget all money needed for every Government Agency is provided by Congress.

Until Congress authorized the Department of Energy(DOE) all Government oversight and control of the Petroleum industry was part of the Department of the Interior (DOI). This happened while I was deeply involved with the energy industry. In fact I chaired a quasi Government/Industry Program for several years that was administered by the Minerals Management Service of the then (DOI) and was Policed/Audited by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. This program required in some cases a lot of wasted time and records. Another peculiar requirement was it only affected two kinds of safety valves out of the hundreds of other failure modes. The one thing even bothered me more was this requirement was only required on oil and gas wells in Federal Offshore waters. After the BP blowout my first thought was they should have required this control on blowout preventers.

The DOE now has 220,000 employees and I would bet my house that the (DOI) has as many or more employees than they had when the the two were separated. Only Congress could have stopped this but they will never understand the game played by Government employees. When you can’t get bigger in bad times then turn the lobbyist loose to create a new Agency. Study how the Department of Education became one of those boondoggles.

Congress makes its own rules, why?

Congress sets its own salaries, why?

Congress determines its own pensions, Why?

Congress determines its own ethics, Why?

Congress establishes its own budgets, Why?

Congress refuses to set term limits, Why?

Finally we elected a President who likely know many more Why’s than I do. Unfortunately Congress entices the media to keep him involved with defending his every decision that he will never have time to fix Congress. The only way Congress will ever get stopped from spending is for the people to stand behind our man. If the people stay divided the America I love so much will disappear.

Do you support open borders with useless control parameters? The Democrats do, why?

Do you support confiscating all weapons and ammo owned by citizens? The Democrats do, Why?

Do you support having to print all Government requirements in as many as 20+ languages, including ballots? The Democrats do, Why?  

Do you want to reinstate the hundreds of unnecessary Government regulations Trump had cancelled? The Democrats do, Why?

Do you want illegal aliens and prisoners to vote in our elections? The Democrats do, Why?

Do you want to keep the treaties that have caused our companies to move the millions of our workers jobs overseas? The Democrats do, Why?

Do you support the Sanctuary Cities and States that hide illegal aliens from deportation that violates Federal Laws? The Democrats do, Why?

Democrats, if you hate our country and our laws so much it would be easier to immigrate to Canada, Australia, England, Germany, France who have Socialism you so dearly desire. If you want to fight for something try immigrating to Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Yemen and help these people kill each other. Leave freedom loving Americans alone.

A bunch of us are happy to be free and we support our President to please don’t stop draining the swamp. We appreciate his vigor and reluctance to keep the pumps draining. Someday our Federal employees will have the same benefits that all of us have, including Congress. If they are elected to support the people they should have pay and benefits that we have. If they want to be equal to the leaders of industry then go to work and earn the benefits like we have to do.

All America needs are jobs and put welfare army back to work. They can replace the illegals that took their place as Americans were put on welfare. The biggest need is term limits and no Tenure for any elected or Obsessionally appointed Government Official.

I challenge anyone to prove me wrong.

“The Last Six Seconds”


After several months of tearing away layer after layer of security concerns the infamous FISA report was released. We were finally able to see what Top Secret activity transpired starting some fifteen months ago.

I spent twenty seven years and one day of my life working is the aviation, space and weaponry world. These were years during the Berlin wall, putting a man on the Moon and the early years of both creating and producing radically new offensive and defensive weapons. This included ways to kill enemies as well as protect American lives.    

During this period of time I had Top Secret Crypto clearance with some other tags for speciality designations. Working on revolutionary new concepts for things that could kill a bunch of people demanded honesty, integrity and obviously secrecy beyond belief. I remembered being debriefed when I left this phase of my life with warnings of what was called “Loose Lips” when I was a boy during WWII.

Like everyone but those who work in Trump’s designated “Government Swamp” we were subjected to months of suspense. For months you might put yourself in my position of wondering what on earth was being protected by Top Secret classification unless Trump had used illegal Russian help to steal the election. If so why did all of this witch hunt begin before the election.

Bill Clinton’s meeting with Loretta Lynch at an airport away from listening possibility of their conversation appeared unusual. The possibility of Trump’s team having those Russian connections and the FBI was listening in on every conversation had not surfaced yet.

When that four page document was revealed today that confirmed that the FBI was using strange methods and known untrue facts to get that FISA warrant, cleared the mystery up to me. A conspiracy between the Clinton’s, the Democratic Party and some top level FBI agents committed so many crimes it will be a long time before I would ever trust the FBI leaders if some are not imprisoned. It appears some media people were part of the secret operation and they also belong in prison. It appears some top level Democratic Congresspersons and the Clinton’s were also involved. They may have enough money to buy a gate pass.

My how things have changed over the years. Unless you brain has moved from your head to the anus area of your body or you are just plain stupid this was a plot even they knew would backfire if Trump won. When you remove the fog even a drunken monkey would understand these clandestine plots were to make sure Clinton won the election.   

To simplify even more the actual use of placing a Top Secret designation on the entire comedy of errors was to protect the FBI and the other list of characters in this “Comic Plot from embarrassment, their cushy jobs and “Three Hots and a Cot” in a federal pokey. Cover Your Ass lies seldom see people escape punishment.

If I was one of the FISA Judges these dumbasses lied to, I would be the first one to begin putting them away. They certainly made fools of these Judges.

Believe it or not if you have a device to connect you with the internet You can read about anything, especially American politics, and never read it all. By the time you think you have read every word there will be more to read than you had when you started.

I will share an old story I heard about fifty years ago.

“A business owner was convinced that his CPA was no longer capable. He invited three new potential accountants to come for an interview.

The first was invited in and was asked a simple question, how much is two and two. Without hesitation he answered “four”. He was excused.

The second one was invited in, asked the same question and provided the same answer, “four”. He was excused.

The third was invited in and asked the same question. Much to the owners surprise he answered  “What number do you want it to be? He was hired immediately.

This story exactly describes our entire government and how it operates. If you take enough time you can get statistics to support any position or answer you are looking for. The amount of honesty, ethics and performance of everyone with power in Washington and the elected officials in every Democratic controlled State is questionable. I believe it might be just as bad in every State because politics controls every aspect of our lives today.

When the powerful can tell you what bathroom you can use you should know ethics have been discarded by one or a group of perverts. Politicians who scream about global warming are being paid to support anything questionable with power and money. Again statistics can find any answer you want if you selectively try long and hard enough.

Anyone who has watched our Federal Judges including the Supreme Court as long as I have and believes they render decisions that meet our Constitution and other laws need to visit a “shrink”. They get nominated and appointed for life by elected officials to support the political party in power. If you care, take time to ask why every political decision by the Supreme Court usually ends with a 5 to 4 decision. Occasionally like Roberts decision on Obamacare when his tie breaking vote smelled like a dead rat. Did he get paid, we will never know?     

To make my point I will share some statistics gathered from the Internet for January 24th. With all of the massive amount of money used to skew facts I question political honesty of these supposedly factual numbers. Most of the data presented is supposedly generated from calls to actual voters. There is no way to guarantee they are actual voters. I am 87 years old and I have never been contacted by one of these pooling companies.       

First look at the President’s performance.

President Trump Job Approval Harvard-Harris Approve 44, Disapprove 56
President Trump Job Approval Reuters/Ipsos Approve 37, Disapprove 59

After nearly every poll in America predicted that Hillary would be elected I have no confidence in anyone anymore. If 56% or 59% of our voters are anti-Trump, America is in deep dodo. We have this one chance to clean politics and the big money will decide this year’s elections just like they have until Trump beat the money powerful in 2016.

Now look at now look over Congress approval rating.

Congressional Job Approval Reuters/Ipsos Approve 18, Disapprove 72
Congressional Job Approval FOX News Approve 15, Disapprove 70

With the growth in the army of people who are required to support one Congressman. The 15% and 18% figures could be the individuals who must number in the thousands and their families and close friends. That is if any of the 535 have a friend? I have found no one who thinks Congress can do anything correct and if they make a decision no one agrees but them.

Look over the right or wrong direction we are headed.  

Direction of Country Reuters/Ipsos Right Direction 30, Wrong Track 58
Direction of Country Harvard-Harris Right Direction 35, Wrong Track 54

When I saw this result these polls reveal they must be rigged with the same people who the pollsters used to report that Hillary would win in a cake walk in 2016.

Real Americans are sick and tired of watching our government grow, create regulations, wreck entire industries like Coal and end up with a welfare army of Aliens, illegal Aliens and far too many Americans unemployed. Watching jobs leave for foreign countries by the millions and our factories boarded up has been miserable.

Fellow Americans we have a new leader in the Washington “Swamp”. He has rolled up his sleeves donned waders and is kicking ass to help Americans. He is fighting the Demoncrats, nearly alone, fighting the RINO’s like John McCain and Lindsey Graham who have tried to torpedo his Presidency along with Chuck “Slimey” Schumer, the Clinton Machine and Nancy, “Face lift Queen” Pelosi.

The primary enemy of the Conservatives and the people is the large networks and news networks including far too many liberals at Fox News like Juan Williams and Shepard Smith.

It is refreshing to see how many companies are bringing back jobs and parked profits from overseas and reopening facilities or building new ones to hire American workers. Drying up the welfare army and putting lifetime welfare leeches to work for their benefits like Roosevelt did in the 1930’s when I was a boy. Why are the Demoncrats pushing to increase the volume of illegals to put on welfare when Americans need the better jobs?

Stop listening or reading the rigged news being spewed from the media supporting the liberal movement to Socialize our Country. Socializing America is a step to remove freedoms millions of Americans have died to protect.

God bless Donald Trump who is our last chance to remain free.

You comments are appreciated in helping me know the subjects you would like to know more about.

My friend, Peter Forrest, sent me these questions and it seems more than interesting to ask your “Liberal Friends” to see if they can explain even one. I want to ask you to please share any answers you might receive as I don’t have even one Liberal” that will speak to me. Even my own liberal family members no longer speak to me. I promise to print any answers but I doubt I will get any feedback as Liberals” never have an answer to anything I ask them. They just shrug their shoulders and walk away. I have no idea who compiled these questions and if anyone knows, tell me so I can give them credits.

Since only 8 million people have ObamaCare, how will 24 million people die after it is repealed? Will 16 million people be randomly shot?

If Donald Trump deleted all of his emails, wiped his server with Bleachbit and destroyed all of his phones with a hammer, would the Mainstream Media suddenly lose all interest in the story and declare him innocent?

If women do the same job for less money, why do companies hire men to do the same job for more money?

If you rob a bank in a Sanctuary City, is it illegal or is it just an ‘Undocumented Withdrawal’?

Each ISIS attack now is a reaction to Trump policies, but all ISIS attacks during Obama’s term were due to Climate Change and a plea for jobs. Why?

After the London ‘Lone Wolf’ terrorist attack government officials have arrested at least eight other ‘Lone Wolves’ who had conspired with the original ‘Lone Wolf’ in planning the ‘Lone Wolf’ attack.  Even though all involved are Muslims, you can be assured, the ‘Lone Wolf’ attack has nothing at all to do with Islam, just like the other 1000 plus ‘Lone Wolf’ attacks by Muslims, are completely unassociated with Islam. Why?

We are scolded every day to stop calling “Freebies” ‘Entitlements’. Welfare, Food Stamps, WIC, ad nauseum are not entitlements. They are taxpayer-funded handouts, and should be called, What?

Social Security and Veterans Benefits are Entitlements because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients. Why does the Media keep listing them with other Freebies?

If Muslims want to run away from a Muslim country, does that mean they’re Islamophobic?

If Liberals don’t believe in biological gender then why did they march for women’s rights?

If Trump was involved with the Russians hacking the Presidential election. How did the Russians get Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC to steal the Primary from Bernie Sanders? How did Russia get Donna Brazile to leak debate questions to Hillary Clinton in advance of the debates?

Why is it that Democrats think Super-delegates are necessary for their nominations, but they have a problem with the Electoral College? Aren’t they used for the same reasons?

If you don’t want the FBI involved in elections, why did the Democrats nominate someone who’s being investigated by the FBI.

If Hillary’s got paid $250,000 an hour for her speeches, how come no one showed up to her free ones?

The DNC is mad at Russia because they ‘think’ they are trying to manipulate our election by exposing that the DNC was manipulating our election, why?

Just one more thing on Trump’s ‘Locker Room Vocabulary’. Why is it that Liberals and the Media are upset about the words Trump used 11 years ago but they are comfortable with strange adult men using the Ladies Room with your Wives and Daughters?  ANON

I feel sure I could keep adding more questions but the Liberals will ignore theses as no one forces them to follow the rules. If we has an honest media and Federal Employees that were not biased it would be nice to watch closely if any of these questions ever appear again. When the FBI can’t be trusted who can you trust?

If the Democrats were made to follow the rules and laws they would never get anyone elected at the national level again. Draining the swamp has been found to be wider and deeper than even Trump expected. Let’s all try to help.

For the past several months possibly billions of dollars of Liberal money has been spent hoping to defeat the recent tax reduction. They have bought 100% of the Democrats in Congress to scream at the top of their lungs that we need tax increases to keep funding our new segment of voters, the unemployed and underemployed welfare army, WHY?

The primary reason is that the over educated, uneducated and under educated  American voters coupled with the welfare army can continue the Liberal/Progressive march to Socialism. The really sad thing to watch, if you care, is the and 95% Socialist and Communist professors in our higher education system that poison every day the young minds with their hate for freedoms. The really stupid part is the same professors can easily be imprisoned once they win their mission.

I received the following message from multiple sources that every American with any intelligence should read.

“The Trump administration released their annual Report to Congress on White House Office Personnel. It includes the name, status, salary and position title of all 377 White House employees”.

“The report also said that Trump decided not to take a dime of his salary, instead he donated it to an amazing cause! (see below). I was able to check was true, plus Ivanka and Jarred are paid zero”.

“The report also showed that President Trump is far better at saving money than Obama was. The total annual White House salaries under Trump are $35.8 million vs. $40.9 under Obama, a savings of $5.1 million. Here are Some other key findings”.

“There are 110 fewer employees on White House staff under Trump than under Obama at this point in their respective presidencies”.

“Nineteen fewer staffers are dedicated to The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS). Currently there are five staffers dedicated to Melania Trump vs. 24 staffers who served Michelle Obama (FY2009)”.

“However, it’s what the report said Trump did with this salary that has everyone talking. Instead of taking his salary, Trump donated all $400,000 to the Department of the Interior where it will be used for construction and repair needs at military cemeteries! AMAZING! It’s so great to have a President who loves our brave military men and women so much”!

“Oh, and where’s the media coverage of this? Oh, that’s right, they don’t cover anything good that the President does”.                   ANON

Watching the news “FOX” today it was refreshing to see Walmart share their tax savings with their millions of employees. Since the tax relief legislation was enacted by Congress, without a single Democratic vote, in the House and Senate we watched an amazing number of American companies give significant bonuses to all employees.

Unless you watch Fox News you would never know the real value and help for the average working American. CNN and the other major networks have had lockjaw and little has been shared unless they could possibly gerrymander the facts into a disadvantage for Donald Trump.

I have a suggestion to make to the entire Democratic Party who opposed this help for everyone who works for a living. Let me propose a Democratic program to help all of those on welfare, every prisoner in America, 13 million illegals, 800,000 DACA aliens and the students who have been radicalized by Socialists Professors

Starting with the wealthy Democratic donors, some who hide from exposure, 100% of the Democratic Congresspersons, all liberal Government employees, all Progressives and every liberal employee in the Mainstream Media. You have to a person stated that the tax legislation would only help the rich. If everyone noted above would promise to donate every new dollar they will receive in the tax legislation decrease it could help the designated poor people in America including the aliens they love so dearly.  

A picture of Pelosi and Schumer serving T Bones to the prisoners of a Federal “pokey” would be great publicity. A picture of George Soros lounging around with some inner city gang leaders would be dynamite. Watching Bill Clinton marching with a promo sign at a House of Ill Repute would really help show support for the working woman.

Should the “Donkey Party” accept my above challenges it might actually gain enough votes to get control of Congress again.  

Let the 2018 political games begin. Trump is leading us to  an America that will work for a living again. Then we will have no needs for the army of illegals who get welfare to exist.                          C Brewer  1-11.18


I have no idea if anyone actually reads the articles I write as virtually no one appears willing to send me feedback. My friend, Freddie “Tadpole” Keel, encouraged me to write and initially set up my WordPress site and taught me how to use it. Preparing to create this posting I as more than surprised to see that I published my first article on September 17, 2010, over 7 years ago. My next surprise was to see that I have published 1128 articles, so far.

My only disappointment is that over those seven years I have received only 1141 comments. Writing is usually a way for people to make a living. For me it has always been a way to share my thoughts, beliefs and knowledge gained in my 47 year career. Starting at seventeen when I joined the Navy, 27 years, 25 in management for Lockheed, 5 years in executive management for Halliburton and 11 years in business for myself. One of my most rewarding task was writing Quality Standard Q-1, including committee structure and guidance procedures for the American Petroleum Institute. I finished my Masters degree at 47. I am a retired Registered Professional Engineer, Member of Mensa, Intertel, ASME, SPE, AQC,and a life member of the PTA.

I had my first international experience at age 28 and when I retired I had worked in 23 different countries and 49 states. I have visited in 32 countries. One unusual thing is the country I was in 33 times, Japan, was a country where I never worked a day. I changed planes in Tokyo and never set foot outside the airport flying to and from other Asian countries. The foreign countries I spent the most time in were Indonesia, Singapore, Denmark, Mexico and Canada.

I started both alone and with partners nine different companies in the US, Canada and Singapore. One thing I found interesting was the help from government agencies in starting businesses in Canada and Singapore. They helped at every step including financial with government loans.

In the United States any form of Government help to start a small business is nonexistent or hidden.

I have enjoyed 24 years of retirement and 87 years of life. The primary reason I am still alive is the love of my life, Norma, who has been my wife, partner, motivator and Judge for 57 years. My mind has not regressed but physically from my knees down I feel 97, I have seven children and counting spouses i currently have 46 in my family of grandchildren, great grandchildren and my first great great grandchild. This group has 5 Doctors, 4 Lawyers (3 too many), 5 educators, a CPA, Petroleum Engineer, Aerospace Manager, three Nurses, 6 now in college and 2 less than 6 months old. Now let me finish this walk through my life and ask everyone who reads this to tell me about your life and I will write articles about some who read my work. If family and friends were money I would be the richest man on earth. Please respond.

You know. . . time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years.

It seems just yesterday that I was young, and embarking on my new life. Yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went. I know that I lived them all. I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams. But, here it is… the winter of my life and it catches me by surprise…How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my youth go?

I remember well seeing older people through the years and thinking that those older people were years away from me and that winter was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like. But, here it is…my friends are retired and getting grey…they move slower and I see an older person now. Some are in better and some worse shape than me…but, I see the great change…Not like the ones that I remember who were young and vibrant…but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we’d be.

Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a real target for the day! And taking a nap is not a treat anymore… it’s mandatory! Cause if I don’t on my own free will… I just fall asleep where I sit!

And so…now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things that I wish I had done but never did!

But, at least I know, that though the winter has come, and I’m not sure how long it will last…this I know, that when it’s over on this earth…it’s NOT over. A new adventure will begin!

Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn’t done…things I should have done, but indeed, there are many things I’m happy to have done. It’s all in a lifetime.

So, if you’re not in your winter yet…let me remind you, that it will be here faster than you think. So, whatever you would like to accomplish in your life please do it quickly! Don’t put things off too long!

Life goes by quickly. So, do what you can today, as you can never be sure whether this is your winter or not! You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life…so, live for today and say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember…and hope that they appreciate and love you for all the things that you have done for them in all the years past!

“Life” is a gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after. Make it a fantastic one.
