Thank you, John. "Interesting" depends on who you are and what you like. My son told me this morning that sometimes I get carried away on my blog with weird stuff that interests me. "Why would I write about anything that doesn't interest me?" I asked.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)

Thanks for reading.
