Don't Steal

It's so veddy, veddy ugly.

Enjoy Your Blessings

I'm getting old. (Well, so's everyone who isn't dead.) I watch my friends losing mobility, having cataract surgery, using canes. So every time I can watch something beautiful, every time I can step up to a high curb, or run for a minute to catch my bus, drive my own car where and when I want, I realize that these simple pleasures may be denied to me someday -- and it's time to enjoy what I have now.

Sunsets. Smiles. Happy events in the lives of your friends and family. Beautiful music. Soft warm clothes. Clean freshly-bathed skin. Yummy food. An interesting idea.

Take a Walk!

Walking has any number of benefits; even a short one will help reduce stress, and regular long walks (defined as 20 minutes or more) improve circulation and help stabilize your weight.

So as Geoffrey Rush's character says in one of the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN movies, Boys, Take a Walk! (Of course, they're walking underwater, on sand. You don't have to work quite that hard. In fact, the underwater part is probably a Bad Idea (TM).)
