    If you have to paint something on a windy day, play it safe. Paint it the same color as your neighbor's car.

    “Society can give its young men almost any job and they'll figure how to do it. They'll suffer for it and die for it and watch their friends die for it, but in the end, it will get done. That only means that society should be careful about what it asks for.” ― Sebastian Junger

    An old timer that I had worked with and admired very much often said "there ain't no bones in a hot dog" at random times. He was quite a character, and a good one at that. I took up my user name in honor of him.

    Hey OG, You just reminded me of this one.....

    Tact is the art of making a point without making an enemy.

    Tact is the ability to tell someone to go to he** in such a way that they will be looking forward to the trip.

    Wow, that brings back memories. Here's the full version of Desiderata (you are a Child of the Universe). This was a hit record way back when.

    Good stuff. Good living just feels better too. Helps you put your head down and sleep better at night knowing that you lived in an upright way.

    Last night at my job where asphalt paving was taking place we took a break out of the road due to an upcoming thunderstorm. I'm in my truck with some Beatles tunes going kinda quietly. Nearby under the canopy of an old abandoned gas station the crew was gathered under the shelter. A crowd of about 20 old, young, brown, black, and white were standing around having a nice time. After about an hour a fellow walks up to me with a sour puss expression and commences to elaborating on everything wrong with the world. Paul McArtney is singing quietly in the back ground "in our yellow... submarine".... as the guy just kept on and on and on...

    I say to the guy "you know what I think of all that?" And at that moment cranked up the volume knob... next thing you know 20 old, young, brown, black and white people are singing at the top of their lungs "WE ALL LIVE IN A YELLOW SUBMARINE... A YELLOW SUBMARINE.. A YELLOW SUBMARINE"
    Man, it was priceless.

    Great story showing how messed-up that guy's thinking really is/was. Thanks for sharing a hopeful message.

    You cannot heal yourself by hurting someone else.

    In order for one thing to become clean, something else must become dirty.

    But you can get EVERYTHING dirty without getting ANYTHING clean.

    Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him to use the internet and he won't bother you for weeks

    Sadly, many would prefer to hurt others.... rather than heal themselves.
