1,795TH POST..

For all of you who have in your own way, made my day, week, month and the past 5 years. You are my friends, my family....I love you one and all..Goddess bless you.
The Charlie Schultz Philosophy (The following is the philosophy of Charles Schultz, the creator of the 'Peanuts' comic strip.

You don't have to actually answer the questions.
Just ponder on them. Just read it through and you'll get the point.
1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.
4 Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.
6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.
The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday.These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.
Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:
1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special!!
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.
Easier? The lesson:The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials...the most money...or the most awards.They simply are the ones who care the most. 'Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia!'

An important lesson for everyone!

I couldn't answer any of the top ones, but I guess no one can. The rest were easy.

May you post on and on.

When you hit 2000 we are going to have one hell of a party - skunk eggs, cheeseburgers, Dr P .. the whole kit and kabuddle!

That made me all warm and fuzzy inside!

I like how Willym thinks...

The answers to the second set of questions - numbers 2, 3, and 4 (and 5 if I could get my hitchhiking thumb to work) include YDG.

Great stuff. I hadn't seen it before.

1,795 posts! I look at my total and just get depressed and I've been doing this about as long as you.
The first set of questions I answered with 'Who Cares!"
The others have a lot of answers and have been lucky to have the people around me I do.
