WELCOME to MONDAY OCTOBER 19, 2020
Just for Today………….
Just for today I will be happy. This assumes what Abraham Lincoln said is true: “Most folks are about as happy as they make their mind up to be.” Happiness comes from within; it is not a matter of externals.
Just for today I will try to adjust myself to what is; not try to adjust everything to my own desires. I will take my family, my business, and my luck as they come and fit myself to them.
Just for today I will take care of my body. I will exercise it, care for it, nourish it, not abuse or neglect it, so that it will be a perfect machine for my bidding.
Just for today I will try to strengthen my mind. I will learn something useful. I will not be a mental loafer. I will read something that requires effort, thought, and concentration.
Just for today I will exercise my soul in three ways: I will do someone a good turn and not get found out. I will do at least two chores I don’t want to do, as William James suggests, just for exercise.
Just for today I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, speak diplomatically, act courteously, be liberal with praise, criticize not at all, nor find fault with anything, and not try to regulate or improve anyone.
Just for today I will try to live through this day only, not tackle my whole life problem at once. I can do things for twelve hours that would appall me if I had to keep them up for a lifetime.
Just for today I will have a program. I will write down what I expect to do every hour. I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. It will eliminate two pests: hurrying and indecision.
Just for today I will have a quiet half hour by myself and relax and get a little more perspective into my life.
Just for today I will be unafraid. Particularly, I will be unafraid to be happy; to enjoy what is beautiful; to love; and to believe that those I love, love me.
“If you are still talking about what you did yesterday, you haven’t done much today.”

“Women now have choices. They can be married, not married, have a job, not have a job, be married with children, un-married with children. Men have the same choice we’ve always had: work or prison.” -Tim Allen
G u a r a n t e e d t o R o l l Y o u r E y e s! I’m the postmaster for a small town in Pennsylvania. One of my regular customers, Jeff, bought several sheets of newly released commemorative stamps. Soon after he left, a woman came in carrying two crisp sheets of Harry Houdini stamps she’d found in the parking lot. The next morning, I gave Jeff the sheets of stamps he’d lost. “You know,” Jeff said to me, “I’m not at all that surprised the Houdini stamps reappeared.”😎
Fridays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? ” “You think I’m licked. You all think I’m licked. Well, I’m not licked. And I’m gonna stay right here and fight for this lost cause, even if this room gets filled with lies like these. And the Taylors and all their armies come marching into this place. Somebody will listen to me.
Answer: Mr Smith Goes to Washington! This is the film that firmly established Jimmy Stewart as a leading actor, and is often featured in lists of the greatest films of all time. He was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor, but lost out to Robert Donat (‘Goodbye, Mr Chips’); his Oscar for ‘The Philadelphia Story’ the following year is often considered an acknowledgement of the magnificence of his losing 1939 performance.
Monday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from????
“I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor. That’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible: Jew, Gentile, black men, white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that.
Friday’s Quizzler is…. I can be repeated, But often not in the same way.
I can’t be changed, But can be rewritten.
I can be forgotten, And can also be lost with death.
My first is in horses, But not in ponies.
My last is in pretty, But not in beautiful.
What am I?
Monday’s Quizzler is……. A young boy went to a Catholic school. During school he started goofing around, so the teacher called him out and sent him to the Pastor. Since this was a traditional school the boy would be spanked, but the Pastor believed in giving people a chance. He said, “If you can ask me a question about something you learned and I don’t know the answer on the spot you will go free.”The boy may have been lazy, but he was very witty. He asked, “What is it that you can see and I can see, usually every day, but God cannot see.” The Pastor stood there, stumped. He couldn’t figure it out because he strongly believed that God sees and knows all, and that there is only one God. The boy smiled and told him.
What was it?
