Sayings for the Week

"Success is going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm."

"If we open a quarrel between the past and the present, we shall find we have lost the future."

both from Sir Winston Churchill

"There are people who put their dreams in a little box and say, "Yes, I've got dreams, of course, I've got dreams." Then they put the box away and bring it out once in a while to look in it, and yep, they're still there. These are great dreams, but they never even get out of the box. It takes an uncommon amount of guts to put your dreams on the line, to hold them up and say, "How good or how bad am I?" That's where courage comes in."

Pancake Breakfast # 13

Central Park in Spruce Grove in conjunction with the annual Grove Cruise event. Pretty good value at $ 2.00 a plate for two pancakes and two sausages with coffee and juice. Pancakes were large and the coffee good. Juice the usual yukky MacDonalds orange - no wonder they give it away free to such events !! Rita, Cai and Gordon in attendance and enjoyed chatting to some other people at the same table.

Sayings of the Week

"I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow-creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again." Robert Louis Stevenson

"Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future." John F. Kennedy

Gordon watched "Crocodile Dundee" for the 100th time this week. Just love the part where they're in the bush and she's asking him if he has an opinion about anything and uses Aboriginal land claims as an example. He says "See those rocks over there ? Been there 60 million years. Will be there long after we're all gone. So arguing about who owns them is like two fleas arguing over who owns the dog !"
