Daily Feng Shui Tip of the Day for August 13

My brother Bob is a lefty. I remember growing up how the nuns and Jesuits priests at St. Benedict’s Prep School used to tell my brother that he was possessed by the devil because he was left-handed. But to this day he still hasn’t shown any signs of horns or a tail! There’s a reason for the old saying that ‘left-handers are the only people in their right minds.’ Einstein was a lefty, as was Da Vinci and Sir Isaac Newton. But left hand or right, you should always begin and end your signature going in the same direction: up! The Feng Shui Prosperity Signature says that when signing your name, always end the first letter of the first name slanted up and to the right, as should the last letter of the last name. Up and to the right, whether you’re a lefty or not!

Thoughts to Ponder for Sept. 16th – Getting Older

Getting old.

  • Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
  • The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.
  • Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know “why” I look this way. I’ve traveled a long way and some of the roads weren’t paved.
  • When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.
  • You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.
  • I don’t know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.
  • One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young.
  • One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been.
  • Yah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.
  • Old age is when former classmates are so gray and wrinkled, and bald they don’t recognize you.
  • If you don’t learn to laugh at trouble, you won’t have anything to laugh at when you are old.
  • First you forget names, then you forget faces. Then you forget to pull up your zipper, then … oh my goodness you forgot to pull your zipper down!
