I was just puttering around here trying to get some things done, listening to some local talk radio.
They have a program going right now about:
What Are the 5 Things you Learned this Week?

2. Valiens (Jeremy) was the guy that got rudely disconnected by Noory and crew.
3. September 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
4. The Beethoven movies (the ones with the dog) are very very boring. And they also made at least 4 of them!!
5. DTS and Dolby AC-3 are both lossy audio codecs.
1. ONE word to the wise is sufficient.
2. After all is said and done, more is said than done.
3. Freedom of speech is wonderful--right up there with the freedom not to listen.

1. Other people's stress can stress people out when there is no need.
2. Asking for something with a smile and a gentle tone will get you what you want.
3. I love chocolate cake (this was affirmed this week, not a first time realization).
4. Getting together with old friends feels really good.
5. My mom is tougher than I often give her credit for.
6. Reading too much about NWO and Pole Shifts and 2012 is very, very bad for my sense of spiritual balance - need to work hard to counteract this but still stay informed.
This is a great exercise!! Thanks for posting this, Alpha!

I'm sure there's more profound examples for me this week, however, here's what comes to mind:
1) Some folks use seaweed to smoke seafood :
2) It's almost impossible to find charcoal to buy in the month of September
3) WYSIWYG formatting is not always what it claims and hell to edit!!
4) Understanding, an open mind and acceptance off both similarities and differences, without judgement are extremely important gifts.
5) A dog is still a human's best friend
Thanks Muse :hug:
Good to reframe sometimes isn't it. ;)...oh the chocolate :D ...I'll leave that for next week :)

Having just come back from the South, chasing the storm, and then talking to my wife and sister who were genealogy research hunting, here's mine.
1). People love panic and to live on the "what if", rather than think logically and live to the "what will".
2). I found out that in the early years county lines in Ohio and county seats changed due to many factors. Perrysburg, OH was once the County Seat for Wood County. Now Bowling Green is. And at one time, Woodville OH was in three different counties due to boarder changes over the years.
3). That unlike many brick and mortar businesses that operate on a 5 year amortization basis, most motels operate on a 3 year plan. Also, that statistically, a motel which has the following within short walking distance would be very successful. a) Pizza parlor/restaurant, b) Dry cleaners, c) Drug store, d) Meeting hall with accommodations for 200 people (with bar and food services).
4). I found out from my sister that my dad was "lost" in Lake Erie for 24 hours till he was found on one of the small islands just after I was born. He was alone, fishing, about 9 miles ENE of Toledo. Also, when he was young, a steam train threw a spark that ignited a field where he and others were playing, and that he at the other boys climbed a tree to escape the fire. It made news in the local paper in 1922.
5). I also found out that although it would be nice to remember the past and the things that meant a lot to me in the past, it's time to move on to more interesting things and redirect my life closer to family.

Saw someone reading this older thread and thought it would be a good time to bump it up....we probably should always be asking ourselves this question :yup:

5 new things i learned, some concerning the 5 old things i learned...
1. my air conditioner with the condensation issues?...well, my landlord opened it up, and mud wasps had plugged all the drain holes, the entire bottom was filed with muddy nasty slimy gunk...which has since been removed, and bleached out...ahhhh...coolness with out water pouring down the wall...
2.crickets(i fear them like i fear sick dememented clowns, and monkey dolls with cymbals)...did you know they wont actually kill you...i actually picked up one with out screaming and tossed it outside...yes i did,with out the usual screaming,stomping and gagging when i have to pick up a squished cricket
3. if you rearrange the entire living room/dining room while your kitty is asleep...they wake up and sit in a ball on the floor, glaring at you with the kitty cat evil eyes, and then spend 45 minutes sitting on every piece of furniture just to see if it still works...
4. unexpected land lord visits dont have to end badly...hopefully mine is selling this place..yipee
5.no matter how much you want to go outside, 101 and 50% humidity isnt fun...

1. my old boss has applied for position and has a chance of being my boss again. I liked him as a boss before. He had a higher-up job in another places so this would be moving back down on the totem pole for him.
2. Long periods of hot and dry seem to always end with massive storms.
3. They built another high speed wireless tower north of me. Just found out about it today when a co-worker sent me an email from an address I didn't recognize. (don't worry-I usually don't open emails like that, but I knew it was from her since I watched her email it0. They're going to send someone out to see if I get reception way out here.
4. Spring cleaning takes longer than you think.
5. After attending two art fairs in 5 days I learned that they are expensive - even though I promised myself I wouldn't spend anything. . . . well, not much. . . ooooh, but I'll never see another one like that! But that art is essential for the human spirit.

1. When you think people who were your friends in the past have forgotten you because you didn't stay in touch, it turns out they not only didn't forget, but they were trying to get in touch all these years. And it feels really good.
2. The internet can be a wonderful and miraculous thing.
3. Getting a huge project done with a team of people who care about it feels great.
4. Knowing there is 3 day weekend ahead of you makes time move at a different rate.
5. Sometimes when things seem hopeless, someone says something that makes all the difference.

1. If you believe life is good -- it is.
2. If you believe life is bad -- it is.
3. No one can make life good or bad but yourself.
4. If you believe you can -- you can.
5. If you believe you can't -- you can't.

I think this might be my new favorite thread!
I like this thread too Muse.
Let's see....this week I learned:
1) Aspartame is e-coli fecal matter
2) Colloidal Silver works well on canine hot spots
3) One has to cut double Brug blooms open to pollinate them/to get pollen
4) I need to start reading the instructions for my camera if I"m ever going to get any decent night shots of the sky
5) The only person anyone can ever count on is themselves ( but then I already knew that....I just forget sometimes ) :wink1:

Sounds like you learned some good stuff Alpha! :veryhappy
Here's mine for the week...
1. Sometimes a room full of cut flowers comes from an unexpected place.
2. I am right where I should be, and am happy.
3. Friends are more important than almost anything. They are as good as our companion pets, but they don't need their tummies tickled. :lmao:
4. Miracles can happen if you believe...
5. Seeing a doe and her newborn fawn can take your breath away and restore your faith in life.
