The unfortunate thing about this world is that good habits are so much easier to give up than bad ones. (Somerset Maugham in One More Day by Sefra Kobrin Pitzele, 6 March)

Affirmation: I can begin today to develop strong, new habits and to hold on to my old, strong habits. (Sefra Kobrin Pitzele, One More Day, 6 March)

Truth cannot make a person unkind, or too self-assured; the manifestations of truth telling are humility and simplicity. (A Calendar of Wisdom by Leo Tolstoy, 24 February)

It takes a walk the length of a football field to burn off the calories in one M&M. (Susan Smith Jones, Choose to Live Each Day Fully, Day 38)
  • Today, on this the 109th birthday of my mother, Ruth, I remember her lovingly. She was a loving daughter, wife, sister, mother, aunt, cousin, mother-in-law, grandmother, teacher and Christian lady who set a good example for all. May she rest in peace.
  • Today I'm ready to review our tax returns for 2008. This year they sent them to me via Email. Last year I went to the office. I'm hopeful that I won't discover any last minute issues.
  • I spent time yesterday sorting and shredding paper. At the bottom of the bottom file cabinet drawer I found important documents that were misplaced in the paper clutter. It's good that I found them, but my timing was terrible. We needed them a month ago.
  • Before I started the laptop this morning I swapped out the CD drive and installed the small floppy drive. I have some genealogy data on floppies that I'm thinking about sharing on the Internet.

Mr. Dickie
