Think About This. Just Some Things I’ve Learned…Author Unknown
I’ve learned that you can get by on charm for about 15 minutes. After that, you’d better know something.
I’ve learned that you shouldn’t compare yourself to the best others can do, but to the best you can do.
I’ve learned that it’s not what happens to people that’s important. It’s what they do about it.
I’ve learned that you can do something in an instant that will give you a heartache for life.
I’ve learned that no matter how thin you slice it, there are always two sides.
I’ve learned that it’s a lot easier to react than it is to think.
I’ve learned that you should always leave loved ones with loving words.
I’ve learned that you can keep going long after you think you can’t.
I’ve learned that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.
I’ve learned that either you control your attitude or it controls you.
I’ve learned that when the light turns green, you had better look both ways before proceeding.
I’ve learned that there are people who love you dearly, but just don’t know how to show it.
I’ve learned that my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and still have the best time.
I’ve learned that true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance.
I’ve learned that you should never tell a child his dreams are unlikely or outlandish. Few things
are more humiliating, and what a tragedy it would be if he believed it.
Hey I’m just saying. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a WONDERFUL
WEDNESDAY people, stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up!

“What we call ‘Progress’ is the exchange
of one nuisance for another nuisance.” – Havelock Ellis
“Better by far you should forget and
smile than you should remember
and be sad.” – Christina Rossetti
“The true man wants two things: danger and play.
For that reason he wants woman, as the most
dangerous plaything.” -Friedrich Nietzsche

I’ve never understood why women love cats. Cats are independent,
they don’t listen, they don’t come in when you call, they like to stay
out all night, and when they’re home they like to be left alone and
sleep. In other words, every quality that women hate in a man,
they love in a cat. 😱😳😁😎
Tuesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Fraulein, were you this much trouble at the Abbey?” “Oh, much more, sir.”
Answer: The Sound of Music
In the events leading up to this scene, nun-in-training Maria (Julie Andrews) does not fit in very well in the Abbey in Salzburg, Austria and the Mother Abbess (Peggy Wood) suggests, “There is a family near Salzburg that needs a governess until September.” The family she is referring to is headed by widowed naval captain Georg von Trapp (Christopher Plummer) who has seven children. When Maria first visits his home he explains how he uses different short-and-long blasts on a whistle to call his children, and assigns a code to her. She protests with the line, “Oh, no, sir, I’m sorry, sir. I could never answer to a whistle. Whistles are for dogs and cats and other animals, but not for children and definitely not for me.” He then says line one and she responds with line two. She later organizes his seven children into an award-winning singing group. In the 1966 Academy Awards “The Sound of Music” won five Oscars, including Best Picture. Julie Andrews was nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her portrayal of Maria (but did not win). This movie is based on a true story. The real Maria von Trapp has a cameo appearance in this movie (she can be seen walking in the square when Julie Andrews sings the song “I Have Confidence”). Maria died in Vermont, USA in 1987 at the age of 82. Historical note: After the Nazis took over Austria in World War II, the family home became the headquarters of Heinrich Himmler.
