Growing old is no more than a bad habit which a busy man has no time to form.”   —   Andre Maurois

(This great quotation made for a great Cryptoquote!    It was challenging without being impossible.  No “the”, and only one word with a “th”.  No double vowels, or consonants.  And, only two “e”s – three if you count the author name – in the entire quote.  Staying busy does prevent “growing old”!  Strive to be both physically and mentally active, friends.  Enjoy this last full day of spring!  As always, be well and do good.)   —   YUR

PS.  The internet is full of many diverse, provocative, and often disturbing opinions.  Zemanta – based on the key word “Disraeli” – brought up another WordPress blog post, which was reposting an article from Veterans Today (VT) about the “Jewish Problem”.  I nearly included it with these other “Related articles”, but after reading it I decided against it.  It was written as a kind of historical perspective, and I was hoping that it would end with some kind of positive spin, but it failed to deliver.  I write this post scriptum as a kind of cautionary tale.  I don’t usually read these “Related articles”, past the short blurb that Zemanta provides, so on occasion I’m sure that there is going to be something that offends someone.  I might need to come up with some kind of disclaimer.  Any suggestions?   —   YUR

Without a family, man, alone in the world, trembles with the cold.”   —   Andre Maurois

(Cherish your families and friends, folks.  No one should even try to go it alone.  What would be the point of making it alone anyway?  Let’s try to show a whole lot more patience in 2013.  It’s one of those reciprocal things.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Growing old is no more than a bad habit which a busy man has no time to form.”   — Andre Maurois

(Bodies – and brains – in motion stay in motion!  Think for yourselves, people.  Don’t allow yourselves to parrot the pundits.  Especially, those putrid FOX “News” ones!  Remember.  They can’t dumb us down . . . unless we let them.  Regardless of how recent politics may be sickening you, because they are me, please go out and vote tomorrow!  Not that we’ve made measurable strides forward, but we simply can’t afford to go back to the ways of the Duh-bya!)   — YUR
