A little Facebook wisdom! ha ha ha
PRESENTLY, I AM TRYING TO MAKE FRIENDS OUTSIDE OF FACEBOOK WHILE APPLYING THE SAME PRINCIPLES.
THEREFORE EVERY DAY, I GO DOWN ON THE STREET AND TELL THE PASSERBYS WHAT I HAVE EATEN, HOW I FEEL
WHAT I HAVE DONE THE NIGHT BEFORE, AND WHAT I WILL DO AFTER, I GIVE THEM PICTURES OF MY WIFE, MY DAUGHTER,
MY DOG AND ME GARDENING AND SPENDING TIME IN MY POOL.
I ALSO LISTEN TO THEIR CONVERSATIONS AND I TELL THEM I LOVE THEM.
AND IT WORKS : I ALREADY HAVE 3 PERSONS FOLLOWING ME : 2 POLICE OFFICERS AND A PSYCHIATRIST.
You have a POOL!? Party at Petesul 's house!
That's what Facebook does for you. I didn't even know I had a pool. Any excuse for a party!!!
The mods will tick me off for posting in the wrong thread, but thanks Diantra for sharing your thread. A bit of philosophy...........
A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.
He then asked the students if the jar was full.
They all agreed that it was. The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar while shaking the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled in the open areas between the golf balls.
He then asked again the students if the jar was full. They all agreed that it was.
The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the
sand filled up everything else. He then asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous “YES”.
The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand.
The students laughed.
“Now”, said the professor, as the laughter subsided, “I want you to recognise that this jar represents your life.
The golf balls are the important things – your family, your children, your health, your friends and favourite passions – things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.
The sand is everything else – the small stuff.
If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued, there is no room for the pebbles and the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important for you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.
Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. ”Take care of the golf balls first, the things that really matter.
Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.
One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented.
The professor smiled. I’m glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend.”
Coffee by the pool - I like it! ha ha ha
Going to print that off, laminate it and slap people with it every time I'm asked from now on... that should keep me fit.
Hey Diantra, this stuff keeps being sent to me from a really really old fella, even older than me, I think it fits the "Facebook" theme........
a couple more...
Hey that's me! Social media Luddite of note- NR being the exception of course.
What!?! ha ha ha You have too much time on your hands Petesul ha ha ha
With fondness, I recall a time b4 computers.
Ive unplugged from the network to a large degree. Linkedin for my business profile, social media is now here. Otherwise, its time for the road!
