Try to look at the big picture. Posted on Mar 08, 2010 at 08:07 PM

The big picture.

"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:

      a time to be born, and a time to die;

      a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted,

      a time to kill and a time to heal;

      a time to break down, and a time to build up;

      a time to weep and a time to laugh;

      a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

      a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;

      a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

      a time to seek, and a time to lose;

      a time to keep, and a time to throw away;

      a time to tear, and a time to sew;

      a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

      a time to love, and a time to hate;

      a time for war, and a time for peace.   "

      Ecclesiastes 3.2 

Must Travel Posted on Mar 02, 2010 at 06:00 PM

I have found that i absolutely must travel every week.

It's impossible to have a 30,000 ft view while staying at sea level.

It really helps me gain and re-gain perspective.

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness..... Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's life"

  -Mark Twain

How do YOU feel about travel?

ALL GONE P.S. Posted on Feb 26, 2010 at 08:55 PM

" We assume that successful or revered people do not carry around demons like the rest of us. They do.


When it comes to grudges, we all have held on to some for too long. What separates winners from losers is how fast we banish those demons.


Pay attention to that voice inside that says: Life is short. Move on. Step Lively"


excerpted from WINNERS NEVER CHEAT by Jon M. Huntsman (billionaire)


This has helped me a lot during this time.







I'm Calling You Out Posted on Feb 21, 2010 at 06:16 AM

Here's the question for women (and men).

Do you believe in equal pay and or compensation? Do you believe in equal treatment (for women)?

If so then do you believe in splitting the tab (so to speak)?

It seems that women want equal everything but when the bill comes they want to be "old fashioned" or "puritanical".

If I were a woman I wouldn't let a man pay for anything. Why would I want to give my power away?

Now don't get me wrong. I love women.

But isn't this a great big giant double standard?

What are your thoughts? 

Life at 51 Posted on Feb 16, 2010 at 02:12 PM

Recently , I've thought about my current age.

After a little reflection I have concluded the following:

     I wouldn't trade this age for any other previously experienced.

     I may have been in a little better physical shape at some earlier time but not much.

     I have never had the wisdom and ability to make good decisions that I have now.

     I have never had the freedom, both financial and time that I have now.

     I feel that I am growing faster now in knowledge and wisdom more now than any other time.

Anyway I'd be interested to know how you feel at your current age and if you'd trade for another age.       

The poor defenseless men...... Posted on Feb 07, 2010 at 10:10 AM

Think about it.

If someone wants to be mean here we really have no defense.

It's not like we can ask them to step outside.

There are those that like to mask meanness with "humor" or "big words".

I think people like this are really cowards, little people hiding behind their computers.

I see you.......booo.......

What do you think?

High Maintenance Posted on Feb 05, 2010 at 01:22 PM

Are you?

Do you consider yourself high, medium, or low.

If you are high maintenance is it a good thing?

Just wondering.......

How do you like to communicate? Posted on Jan 21, 2010 at 06:13 PM

So, if you meet some really interesting potentially romantic interest here, how do you like to get to know them?

By typing, typing, typing?

By chatting , chatting, chatting.?

By meeting in person?

By talking on the telephone?

Just wondering.

You Said WHAT? Posted on Dec 26, 2009 at 07:25 AM

I'd like to write for a bit about the goings on both here and elsewhere.


Because this is the internet:


     1. Is it right to spread information around about others that is either correct or incorrect?


        Whether it is right or wrong, do I (or you) still do it


        Webster's definitions on gossip are:


            1. c. a person who habitually reveals personal or sensational facts about others


            2. a. a rumor or report of an intimate nature b: a chatty talk c: the subject matter of gossip


      2. What is your policy on this? Do you have one?


      3. If the person is your "friend" is it ok to say whatever you want behind their back? 


      4. Have you ever copy and pasted a chat or private e-mail and proceeded to forward to others?


      5. Have you ever said harmful things about others "in jest"?


         In this case, was it possible that in doing so you may have harmed this person?


      6. Is their any law that applies to this area? Would that fit in the category of slander?


      7. Does anyone on MM monitor these things?




Well it seems to me that the very nature of the internet lends shelter to those who would gossip.


There are laws in place but by the time they got enforced it would cost a fortune.


I don't think there is anyone on this site who monitors anything except the most fraudulent of matters.


Even though there are few obvious consequences they still exist.




What are your thoughts? What is your policy? 

A Turkey Or A Ham? Posted on Dec 21, 2009 at 02:14 PM

OK you'd better get your order in.

What Do You Have To Say? Posted on Dec 16, 2009 at 07:13 PM

OK, go ahead. I'm listening........

What's Wrong With You? Posted on Dec 12, 2009 at 12:36 AM

OK, I have been asked this question at least a million times.

So I've never been married. The supposition is that there must be something wrong with me.

I have a brother who's been married 5 times. Would that be better?

People can be so rude and shortsighted here. It never ceases to amaze me.

Where is the basic level of kindness?

I know there are plenty of good people and friends out there as well.

Anyone had a similar experience? 

Three Powerful Words Posted on Dec 04, 2009 at 07:00 PM

Someone shared with me some wisdom a while back about these three powerful words.?


It was recommended that more often than not to practice using these words.



           I DON'T KNOW



That's right, even when I do know I will often use these words.



First of all where is it written that I always have to know the answer to whatever comes up.



In many cases my opinion or thoughts on some matter would not be helpful.



So this works for me.



What works for you?

A Happy Turkey Posted on Nov 28, 2009 at 12:08 PM

Yes that's me. And the turkey that didn't get eaten by me Thursday. My personal chef refused to make this so it was chicken instead. And a lot of other french dishes, most of which I didn't like. This is GOOD. Fewer miles for me to run to stay in shape.

Better than anything else was the chance to play some competitive table tennis with my nephews.

They were nice enough to let me win a few games.



So how are all my friends on this beautiful day?

A Positive Attitude Posted on Nov 25, 2009 at 08:16 AM

I have posted a few blogs and comments on this site.

I am always interested in hearing (and learning) from my fellow bloggers/readers.

I do not mind hearing a different perspective and in fact welcome this.

Diversity is so important.

From time to time I will discover that someone has written a rude/disrespectful or mean spirited comment.

I will not and do not tolerate this. My delete button works just fine. If need be I will block/blacklist the individual.

I see no need to tolerate people who will try to tear me down.

How do you handle negativity?

What Women Want Posted on Nov 15, 2009 at 09:27 AM

What I know about what women want would fit into a thimble with room left over.


I know there are some commonalities and then there are personal preferences.


From what I've read women most often want the following from their man:


¿¿ ¿ ¿ ¿ ¿ !. Affection: and men need to learn exactly what comprises this?


¿¿ ¿ ¿ ¿ ¿ 2. Conversation and communication.


¿¿ ¿ ¿ ¿ ¿ 3. Honesty and openness.


¿¿ ¿ ¿ ¿ ¿ 4. Financial support.


¿¿ ¿ ¿ ¿ ¿ 5. Family commitment


So since this is a learning experience for me I'd like to know if you agree with this and what you would add or subtract.

What I have noticed Posted on Oct 30, 2009 at 04:23 PM

In reading through quite a few profiles posted by women I have found some things that seem to be common requests:

1. Prince Charming

2. someone to rescue me/ sweep me off my feet

3. honesty

4.good communicator

5.a man who knows how to treat a woman

6. someone (who apparently) likes to look at pictures of pets/ or children

Not that any of this is right or wrong. I will continue my research.

Sweet Georgia Peaches Posted on Jul 09, 2009 at 04:00 PM

There's nothing better than a couple of sweet Georgia peaches..........

Don't you agree?

To be continued.

Peru Posted on May 08, 2009 at 07:11 PM

I have this theory.

I think most women (american) like Peru. I don't know why.

Maybe because it's exotic. Or maybe I'm¿not supposed to know why.¿It's only important that I know.

Is this true?¿

Gossip Posted on Apr 21, 2009 at 04:31 AM

It has been pointed out to me that certain of my "friends" here are spreading personal information about me behind my back.

So the question for me is: Is gossip bad?

In any social group, MM being one I think it is quite human to talk about others. Can it be hurtful? I think it can. Although limiting the amount of personal information given to anyone also tends to limit the gossip.

So on balance, I do not condone or appreciate gossip but I also think the damage can be limited to the information I¿provide to the group.

What are your thoughts and experiences?¿
