Please enjoy today’s Colin Powell moment

Interesting Fact: The electric chair was invented by a dentist! (The

“There are no
secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning
from failure.” Colin Powell
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s extremely
deep Word of the Day. You should also
have a good luck star fish. You can’t be
successful without a good luck star fish.
I know. I just bought one for
$19.99 plus shipping and handling.
Please enjoy today’s P. G. Wodehouse moment
which every bit as deep as anything else you may have read:
“At the age
of eleven or thereabouts women acquire a poise and an ability to handle
difficult situations which a man, if he is lucky, manages to achieve somewhere
in the later seventies.” P. G. Wodehouse (Most seventy year olds seem to
handle difficult situations by sitting around, drinking coffee, and griping to
anyone who will listen. It’s no surprise
that women learn this at such an early age.)
Now it is time for the super nifty bonus
Word (or Phrase) of the Week! Learn and speak English, it’s the Mother Tongue!
(noun, Pronounced kloud-KOO-koo-land) : a
realm of fantasy or of whimsical or foolish behavior
Used in a sentence: You must be living in cloud-cuckoo-land if you think you can
be successful in life without a good luck star fish.
Shades of Plaid is now available. It

ways to get to the book.
It’s now in paperback https://www.createspace.com/3521456
