Quote of the Day...

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children..

.to leave the world a better place..

.to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.

This is to have succeeded.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The phrase "raining cats and dogs" originated in 17th Century England. During heavy downpours of rain, many of these poor animals unfortunately drowned and their bodies would be seen floating in the rain torrents that raced through the streets. The situation gave the appearance that it had literally rained "cats and dogs" and led to the current expression.

A Wise Tale...

An old Cherokee told his Grandson, “My son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil. It has anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies, and ego. The other is good. It has joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy, and truth.” The boy thought about it and asked, “Grandfather, which wolf wins?” The old man replied with, “The one you feed.”
