Time... the most important thing in life. More important than money, belongings, friendship, freedom or even love. Although it is less enjoyable without these things because they are dependent on it, they are useless without it. It is the one thing in life that is finite and by nature, completely out of our control. None of us knows what our individual time limit is. We must make the most of the time we are given.

Most of us waste far too much time. We fret about past mistakes, not wanting to make them over again. We worry about material concerns instead of what is really important which is enjoying the fleeting moments with those people whom we most enjoy the company of.

You can control more or less, how much money you have, how much stuff, how many friends. What you can't control is how long you have to enjoy these things. Everyday you go without seeing someone, loving someone, sharing time,  is a day you can never get back. You can see them in the future, but the day you missed is lost forever...think about that...everyday you don't do something you enjoy doing you lose forever. You can never have that day again.

Starting right now, cherish every moment. Time will pass you by if you let it.

Snow Plows

4 times this winter my mailbox has been hit by the County snowplow. Been here over 10 years & don't recall any times before but 4 times this year. Ridiculous.

Kathy Huggins hospitalized, in critical condition

Kathy Huggins hospitalized, in critical condition

John and Kathy Huggins
FAIRHOPE, Ala. — RV blogger and podcaster Kathy Huggins, who with her husband, John, produce Living The RV Dream, remains in critical condition after emergency surgery this weekend.
Kathy began complaining about severe abdominal pain Friday night, and she was transported to Thomas Hospital in Fairhope, Ala. Doctors there discovered a hernia which impeded blood flow to her upper intestines. Surgeons removed 95 percent of her small intestines.

John Huggins told RV Daily Report that Kathy is in critical condition in the intensive care unit at Thomas Hospital, and on ventilator support. When she is awake, she can recognize those around her and squeeze their hands, which he said is encouraging.
Both of the Huggins’ sons have arrived at the hospital.

I took this pic while bringing the rig home the day I bought her. Been 8 months already.

Thanks to my buddy Mike S. for going with me to pick her up and drive the car back.  I've done a lot of work to her already but many more projects to do before we "fly the coop" for good.

Quite honestly, Officer, I wouldn't have even pulled over had I known all you were going to do was stand there and criticize my driving. Geez.

It may have taken a few decades longer than George Orwell thought, but this IS Big Brother.

In Japan, happiness is... wearable sensors?

It is a problem that has defeated generations of philosophers, poets and painters, but one Japanese company thinks it has come up with a way of knowing for sure if people are happy.
Hitachi High Technologies, a subsidiary of ovens-to-trains conglomerate Hitachi, says its new happiness-measuring device will let bosses know if they run a happy office -- or if their employees are secretly bored at work.
The company has developed a credit-card size wearable device loaded with sensors that determine where the wearer is and whether he or she is sitting, standing, typing or nodding.
It also records who is talking to whom and for how long, among other activities.
The data is then sent back to a base unit, which calculates the happiness of the group as a whole by comparing the patterns of activity with pre-determined patterns from groups who report being... well, happy.
Hitachi says the idea behind the system is to help employers find ways that can increase the group's happiness, thereby improving their productivity.
The system, which cannot be used to measure an individual's state of mind, will go on sale in Japan in April, with each measuring tag costing 100,000 yen ($840) a year.

I had my tonsils taken out as a child. They said they were useless, but based on my life since then, I'm guessing they controlled motivation.

The future of RV Toilets.

I've been watching this company for several years now. Once they develop a biodegradable bag material, and can reduce the cost of the bags,  this will be so much better than using a "stinky slinky."  Even less "gross" than a composting toilet. One day I'll probably have one in my RV.

Interviewer: "So, Andrew, professionally speaking where do you see yourself 5 years from now?" Me: "I'd say my biggest weakness is listening."

Times Change.....
Remember when people had diaries & got mad when someone read them? Now we put everything online and get mad when people don't.
