Grab a pen. Or chisel….
That is a picture of the oldest tablet found - to date. In 2016 this tablet sold at auction for $850,000. That doesn't sound like much, considering that Michael Jackson's white glove sold for $350,000 at auction... Yeah, so the tablet.... The guys that were excavating for a railroad line in Western Israel came across … Continue reading Grab a pen. Or chisel….

I can't believe all the food, ice-cream and chips I have been indulging on this past week have done me SO good! I don't even feel like I've … Continue reading My scale is just having a bad day.

The British Dictionary offers this: The first man on a climbing rope. Leadership. The act of leading. Putting yourself out in front to … Continue reading Take me to your Leader
So, this morning I hear my husband from the other room say "I need more Vitamin C when you go to the store again, wife" (he calls me wife, which is very endearing unless he is upset about something and then it sounds somewhat caveman-ish - WIFE!) Good thing I am awesome and never upset … Continue reading House Manager
Swim, Jonah! Swim!
So, who hasn't heard about Jonah and the fish? If you haven't, then you simply MUST read about it! Old Testament - Book of Jonah. I was reading his profile (Jonah's) and giggled a bit at the idea of this man who was called by God, running off and purchasing a ticket for a boat … Continue reading Swim, Jonah! Swim!
Isn't it strange how one word can change the meaning of something "pretty" drastically? Life is "pretty" good? Wow. I hope that this product will be on the clearance rack soon due to non-interest in buying a "pretty good" attitude. Would you buy a "pretty" good car? Or fly on a "pretty" good plane? Um, … Continue reading Oh, Walmart….
