Postage Stamp Bash / For Ogden Nash - CBS News

People who work sitting down get paid more than people who work standing up.”   —   Ogden Nash

(Based on his heritage . . . and his father’s business, I kinda doubt that old Ogden ever worked standing up.  But he was quite the humorous poet.  As in ‘A Word to Husbands’ To keep your marriage brimming With love in the loving cup, Whenever you’re wrong, admit it; Whenever you’re right, shut up.  Brilliant!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

TSA Check: Self-Service Checkpoints And Fewer Pat-Downs? Yes, Please.

Better three hours too soon than a minute late.”   —   William Skakespeare

(Maybe the TSA should use this quote to get folks to the airport ahead of their international flights!  After 35 years of being married to a Filipina I am far less prompt than I was raised to be.  But, I still strive to be on time.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Did she says this at the same time she said:  “Take care of the small things and the big things take care of themselves.”, or was this just kind of a recurring theme with her?  There’s definitely a lot of truth in it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
