Problem With Procrastination Anyone?

I thought I was "the great procrastinator" but I guess I've been eclipsed by this guy.

Any one of my readers having this procrastination problem?

A Few Wise Words From Old Franklin

On the subject of spending, it's interesting to note what Benjamin Franklin
thought of the topic. Of course, it was written in his earlier years, he was much more liberal with his money later on.

You may think, perhaps, that a little tea, or a little punch now and then, diet a little more costly, clothes a little finer, and a little more entertainment now and then can be no great matter but remember what Poor Richard says "Many a little
makes a mickle; beware of little expense for a small leak will sink a great ship."
- Benjamin Franklin-

A child and a fool imagine twenty shillings
and twenty years can never be spent.
-Benjamin Franklin-

Full Belly Project

"What a great concept." Thanks to the innovator: Mr. Jock Brandis for the peanut sheller for African use.

It has already greatly improved the nutrition of African children and reduced the labor of women. The children will not suffer from hunger anymore because of this great innovation. My hope is that it spreads all over the countries where hunger is a huge problem.

I just love to read about "feel good stories" like this one.

Something To Reflect On

Thousands have lived without love,
not one without water.

Time is a great teacher,
but unfortunately it kills all its pupils."
