Bragging Rights

Subject: Bragging rights...

Finally!  Something we can brag about. 

Thanks to Pearl for forwarding this nugget.

I don't want to brag or make anybody jealous or anything,

but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

Thinking about Your Age as Toddlers, Preteens, Teens; In Your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and Beyond-As Per George Carlin

When is the last time you thought about your age in months? 6 months? 18 months?  24 months?  Sure!  720 months, DEFINITELY NOT!

In 1/2 years?   2 and 1/2?  6 and 1/2?  11 and 1/2?  Absolutely!   But 60 and 1/2?  I DON'T THINK SO...
In decades? The 30s, the 40s, the 50s, ...the 100s?  We can certainly hope so.
PS:Just forget any "Black Balloon" Birthdays, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!

George Carlin shared his thoughts on age(in societally-acceptable language, no less).
 Truly,  the late George Carlin's beautiful take on age is worth watching.  Plus the photography is outstanding.

Thanks to Marty for forwarding this to us.

Watching Out for Our Little Ones

The second page of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette(June 6, 2010)  has a health and science column that is very important to pass on to anyone who has little ones.

Lithium batteries ingested can cause death. These little button batteries used to power remote controls, toys, musical greeting cards, and other home electronics are deadly.

Please alert all parents of young children about this danger. And for those of us with grandchildren, the warning will make us double check the toys we buy or what we have around the house when our most precious family members visit.

Also, McDonald's is recalling the Shrek glasses.  They have traces of cadmium on them and should be disposed of if you have one in the house.

Thanks to Joan H. for sending us warnings that will help to keep our little ones safe and healthy.
