Welcome! Take a load off. It’s Saturday and you have my permission (as if you need it!) to be lazy. Here are some Girl Scout cookies to dip in your milk. Open the blinds, look out the window and appreciate the fact that Spring is nearly here and get ready to click on some really great articles. Thanks for dropping by and Happy Reading!
ø Erin Pavlina presents Are You Afraid to Be Rich? posted at Erin Pavlina’s Blog, saying, “Many years ago I had this odd mentality about money and wealth. I thought that rich people were all greedy, and that most of them had probably sold their soul to the devil in order to attain their wealth. I assumed that rich people were conniving miscreants who took advantage of others. I assumed that corporations were evil, because it seemed to me like they always used clever marketing and subliminal advertising to coerce people into buying their products. Rich people who inherited their wealth seemed lazy to me.”
ø kathryn presents You Can Afford to Be Generous posted at Out of Debt Christian, saying, “This morning I decided to swing through the Dunkin Donuts drive thru to pick up a coffee and a bagel. As I pulled up to the window to pay for my breakfast the cashier told me, “The lady in front of you already paid for your order. She wanted me to tell you to have a nice day.” Stunned, I tried to get a glimpse of the lady in the minivan pulling out onto the road. I waved at her, but I’m not sure she saw me. Within seconds she was gone.”

ø Wayne Cross presents My First Scuba Diving Vacation posted at First Scuba Diving Vacation, saying, “Everybody who dives has to have a first diving experience. Mine was about twenty years ago of the Big Island of Hawaii with a group of my friends. None of us were certified. How could we be, since it was our first time? If we had been certified, at least we could have said we had previously dived to the bottom of some community pool back on the mainland.”
ø Victor Schultz presents St. Peters Square and Plaza | St. Peters Square, Vatican City posted at St. Peters Square, Vatican City, saying, “I had the great pleasure on touring the Vatican, St. Peter’s Basilica, and the Sistine Chapel. I wanted to give you just a glimpse of what you might see, if you were to visit the Holy See in Vatican City, Rome, Italy. Obviously, any tour of the Vatican is best in person. If you cannot go there, then a tour with pictures is perhaps the second best approach to seeing the Vatican and all the beauty and splendor that it has to offer.”
ø soldave presents Whatever happened to the minute’s silence? | Big in Japan posted at Big in Japan, saying, “Was watching a recent sporting event and before the match they requested everyone take part in a minute’s applause in commemoration of the passing of someone coonnected with the home club. As this went on it got me thinking: when and why did the minute’s applause turn into a fitting alternative to the minute’s silence?”
ø Mary H. presents Paden Smells his Tail posted at Stale Cheerios, saying, “I have a fun little rescue horse I’ve been working with this month. He’s got some issues, and has a lot of trouble relaxing. We’ve been working on stretching exercises, so one of the things I taught him this month was to bend his neck around to smell his tail! This is my experience teaching Paden this skill, including a short video clip.”
