Hello there!

I thought it would be fun to add a page of old science fiction and horror movies to this blog. You know, stuff that, today, may make us laugh, but way back when we were kids scared the snot out of us. 

I’ll probably add to it fairly often and this is just enough to kick it off. 

I would like to keep this to films made prior to 1960, but I won’t promise anything…

If you want to take a look, click on this link…

Have fun!

I originally sent this message to some of my closest family and friends in an effort to alert them to an issue that is now showing its ugly head in my life and give them a heads up that it may also be coming their way in the near future. 

After giving it careful consideration, I have decided to pass this information along to those of you who follow this blog so as to give you the opportunity to prepare for what’s coming down the road.

Please know that I don’t take this lightly, and I hope and pray that this reaches you while there is still time to act upon its message…

This is an important message for a few of my closest and most trusted friends. So important and personal that I am sending it in Chinese, so as to avoid any problems with people who might intercept and use this information against me, my family or you, my friends who may be affected by this. But, again, I trust each of you not to tell anybody about this…

Remember, I’m counting on you…

Thanks for being there when I need you…

Please take care..

Hello again, Gentle Reader… I have returned with, yet, another lesson on how to live your life successfully under any circumstances or conditions whatsoever…

Today, I am going out to get a new tire for my wheelbarrow. As part of the process for doing that, this morning I looked into the mirror to make sure that the neighbor kids won’t be terrified when I leave my driveway and, upon doing so, I realized that a good hat will no longer suffice to make me appear well groomed. I am beyond that stage and it is time to invest in a haircut.

This man has just discovered that he has a severe case of Bed Hair. Note the pained expression on his face. That's because he has just come back in from walking his dog around the neighborhood - and he did it before he looked into the mirror.. Pray for him. And the neighbors. But pray mostly for the dog, who attempted to hide his face the entire time he was outside with his "master"...

 

Or… is it?…

At almost any other time of year, this would be a great time to get a haircut. However, in my case, for today, at least, bad hair presents a once in a lifetime conundrum. Seriously – this will only come up one time during my whole life (unless I change barbers, and maybe not even then).

On this day,  the decision to get, or not to get, a haircut has become a matter of principle and priority. 

Principle: Nice men should look nice. People think I am a nice man. I should look nice.

Priority: Looking nice is nice. There is money involved. Screw looking nice.

It required some thought… And so I gave it some thought…

On one hand, today, I don’t qualify for the senior discount provided by the shop that cuts my hair and makes me reasonably presentable to other members of the human race.

On the other hand, next Friday I will qualify for the senior discount.

This situation was quite disconcerting to me. I want to look nice for my wife and my dog (not so much for the cat), but looking nice comes with a price (in this case, an extra $1.50 if I do it today vs. next week). 

(Let me give you a little background on something, here… Judy and I have started collecting our receipts so we can better evaluate who spends more money  how we invest our hard earned funds and how we can better live within our budgetary constraints. She has a box on her desk for her receipts, and I have a box on my desk for my receipts. So far, I have one receipt for $8.34 in my box.

I’m not used to this sort of internal battle, and I was having a problem making a final decision on whether to act today or wait a week and save a buck-fifty keeping me in the “who spends more money game. It was time to break out the big guns…

…This gave me a chance to use my newly acquired “Pro-Con” decision making tool:

I quickly did so and immediately messed up the process by putting my issue in the wrong place on the form. Then, when I had made my decision, I left off my plan of action. And, finally, I put in the wrong year – should be 2015. At least I didn’t get ahead of myself… 

But, be that as it may, I made the crucial decision to – well, you can see for yourself above, and I don’t want to bore you by repeating repeating my final decision…

So, now I’m going to go to my truck, which (I just remembered) has been warming up for the past two hours as I have been writing this post, and go get a new tire for my wheelbarrow. 

And NOT get a haircut…

And save a dollar and fifty cents... Or maybe a bit less, since my truck has been running in place for the past two hours…

As always, Gentle Reader, if I may be of any assistance to you in the ways of living a more successful life, please don’t hesitate to contact me at one of my many personal email address: billk@sti.net.

Until next time,

Live Life Successfully Or Die Trying…
