We are only human. We need each other to straighten out our thoughts.

We see it often in life. In time. People who never fail to impress us. Maybe it is your Dad. Maybe your mother. They do seem to be wise, and know just about everything. Well, there is a pretty good reason for that. They have experience, wisdom, and they seen allot of things in their time.

Pretty hard to buck the old man, but I do remember of one instance when a pump was not pumping water from a cistern. He and his grey haired friends, kept putting water into the pump. The pump would just not pump. Right away, I spoke up at a youthful 19 years old or so and said it is your foot valve that is probably stuck open.

"No, no no that is not it my boy",  came the answer from my elders. Who was I to question their years of experience in time. Usually, I was wrong. Usually, I kept quiet during these times when my superiors fiddled with their projects to keep things running smoothly. After fiddling with pressure switches, tank pressure, they finally looked at the foot valve. It was, stuck open.

And this little bit of knowledge I imparted to them during that day, was an inkling of the vast amount of knowledge I got from them doing their projects over time.

Probably the best advice I can give to you, the reader, is find your mentor.  And all through your lifetime, you will have mentors. That is the key to success.

Wisdom is the key. Knowledge is the key. Kindness is the key, which we should also find buried somewhere  in situation at hand. When faced with a problem,  when many minds look at it,  kindness comes out when the problem is fixed together.

Have a great evening,  till next time..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
