    When Cool Was Cool

    The definition of old school cool. Cary Grant in the 1950s

    The people we aspired to be decades ago were much different than the celebrities young people looked up to today. The values of our past have nearly vanished, but I’m hoping that if everyone sees this, they might think differently about what "cool" was yesterday and what is considered "cool" today. . . really isn’t.

    Share and remind everyone what "cool" used to be like!

    3. It may not
    come as a surprise but more people live inside the circle than outside of it.

    4. This map shows what is on the other side of the world from where you are standing. For the most part it will probably be water.

    5. Apparently you can’t get Big Macs everywhere. This map shows (in red) the countries that have McDonalds.

    6. This map shows the
    countries (in blue) where people drive on the left side of the road.

    Some thoughts from Richard Branson. May get you thinking and acting in 2015! 

    As you know, Colleen is a Pinterest person. And if you are not, it is a pain to forward and be able to see. But these are SO good that we got them as images. There are so many good ones here, but two of the best are –

    1) Screw it, do it!


    2) Dream big by setting yourself seemingly impossible challenges. You then have to catch up with them!

    A menu from the past–This is OUR ERA

    A menu from the past!!!

    Sandwich Menu from Woolworths…

    If anyone doubts what we paid for a coke and
    a sandwich at Woolworths in the 1950s,
    here’s proof of the era we lived in.

    I wondered who to send this to – – who would
    actually remember eating at a Woolworths ?

    Isn’t it fun just to receive an e-mail that doesn’t
    make you crazy but just brings back good memories?

    For those of you who are too young to remember. Too bad.

    Can you believe it was in ENGLISH ONLY!

    Where are your glasses???

    Subject: Fw: Fwd: Where are your glasses???


    Yesterday my daughter e-mailed me again, asking why I didn’t do something useful with my time.

    “Like sitting around the pool and drinking wine is not a good thing?” I asked.

    Talking about my "doing-something-useful" seems to be her favorite topic of conversation.

    She was "only thinking of me", she said and suggested that I go down to the Senior Center and hang out with the guys.

    I did this and when I got home last night, I decided to play a prank on her.

    I e-mailed her and told her that I had joined a Parachute Club.

    She replied, "Are you nuts? You are 78 years old and now you’re going to start jumping out of airplanes?"

    I told her that I even got a Membership Card and e-mailed a copy to her.

    She immediately telephoned me and yelled, "Good grief, Mom, where are your glasses?!This is a Membership to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club."

    "Oh man, I’m in trouble again,” I said, “I really don’t know what to do. I signed up for five jumps a week!!"

    The line went quiet and her friend picked up the phone and said that my daughter had fainted.

    Life as a Senior Citizen is not getting any easier, but sometimes it can be fun.

    The Lord’s Prayer

    This is so beautiful. It will give you goose bumps

    If you haven’t seen this it is worth the few minutes. Beautiful music!
    This is a most breathtaking rendition of The Lord’s Prayer. I thought you’d like it and hope that you find the time to play it through.


    It was performed by Andrea Bocelli in honor of those who died in the train derailment near Santiago de Compostela, Spain, last summer.

    Andrea is accompanied by a full orchestra and choir, and it is simply beautiful.
