100 Year Old Lady Gives Secret To Long, Healthy Life | Incredible Things

How incessant and great are the ills with which a prolonged old age is replete.”   —   Source Obscure

(I’ve got too many physical problems as it is already!  I’m not looking forward to more.  Hopefully, I’ll be spared the mental ones though.  This old girl seems to be handling it well.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Kentucky braces for chaotic primary election after cuts to polling locations  - CNNPolitics

The polls are places where you stand in line for a chance to decide who will spend your money.”   —   Source Obscure

(That sounds about right.  But, this recent election goes beyond the pale!  I’ve never seen a losing side this ridiculously recalcitrant before.  Biden won the electoral vote 306, to Trump’s 232.  And, it coincides with Biden’s popular vote victory of 78,631,718 to Trump’s 72,907,488.  A difference of 5,724,230!  Even the Department of Homeland Security – which is currently under Trump’s control – has called the election “the most secure in American history”.  Countless judges have thrown out Trump’s election fraud suits.  Yet he still refuses to concede what is obvious to everyone but him, and his circle of simpering sycophants.  How he could have garnered 47.3% of the American electorate is beyond me.  I guess a whole lot of them bought into the ridiculous fear tactics that he employed.  Sad.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

How The New Retirement Age Could Affect Your Employees | Blog.SHRM.org

A man is known by the company that keeps him on after retirement age.”   —   Source Obscure

(That only works today if you own the company!  LOL!  I suppose there are some companies out there who value some of their elderly employees, but they are in the minority.  I have known some folks who retired, and their company re-hired them as consultants, often at a premium.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Is there “Common Sense” in safety? - Safety Risk .net

Common sense is the knack of seeing things as they are, and doing things as they ought to be done.”   —   Source Obscure

(I started off thinking that the first word was FOLLOW, as this being some kind of directive quote . . . and, because there is nothing COMMON about yer Uncle!  LOL!  I quickly figured out there probably weren’t that many W’s in this puzzle.  Then the repeating GK’s/TH’s hit me, and the whole thing started to make SENSE.  This has the ring of a Mark Twain, or Josh Billings quote, to me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Coronavirus & COVID-19 Overview: Symptoms, Risks, Prevention ...

It is much more important to know what sort of patient has a disease than what sort of disease a patient has.”   —   Source Obscure

(Really?  I’m not so sure I agree with this statement.  I mean, I understand environmental factors and lifestyle issues, but there are plenty of afflictions that seem to defy those things.  Anybody have a better take on this quote . . . that I’ve never heard uttered before?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.”   —   Source Obscure

(This quote sounds so noble that many people have tried to attribute it to Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, or Oliver Wendell Holmes.  But, there’s no record of any of these men uttering this sentiment.  Could be a dude named Albert Jay Nock, who wrote an introduction to a book published in 1940 called “Meditations in Wall Street”.  Or William Morrow, the head of the publishing house who put out the book.  The author was a mystery until 1947 when the New York Times revealed the author to be Henry S. Haskins.  Haskins had been a Wall Street trader who had gotten in trouble with the Stock Exchange thirty years before.  The book is supposed to be about much more than Wall Street, and a nice philosophical read.  Maybe we should try to look it up!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If the bee bites you once, it’s the bee’s fault.  If the bee bites you twice, it’s your fault.”   —   Source Obscure

(This is a truism that is filled with errors.  It is physically impossible for a bee to ‘bite’ more than once, because their stinger and venom sac, and part of their lower abdomen, get ripped out when the bee flies off . . . to die within minutes.  A wasp however can sting – not bite – you many times, as their stingers stay intact.  Bees sting only defensively, while wasps can be more aggressive.  But, if you don’t give a wasp a reason to sting you – like swatting at it – they’ll usually just leave you alone.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A man is known by the company that keeps him on after retirement.”   —   Source Obscure

(I don’t think this quote was coined anytime in the last twenty to thirty years!  We currently live in the era of disposable employees.  Get ’em young, run ’em ragged for a few years, then let ’em go, repeat.  There are always some exceptions, but there isn’t a whole lot of company loyalty these days.  Pretty sad.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The real test of golf and in life is not staying out of the rough, but getting out after we are in.”   —   Source Obscure

(Real tall rough can be tough, but I always had a harder time getting out of some of those sand traps!  Especially, if you’re up close to the bunker’s lip!  If you’re just far enough away from it, and you’re handy with a wedge, you can usually get out.  But, you usually sacrifice some distance too, which results in an additional stroke, or so.  But, the point of the quote is to not let life’s problems get you down.  You’ve got to dust yourself off, and get on with life.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If the bee bites you once, it’s the bee’s fault.  If the bee bites you twice, it’s your fault.”   —   Source Obscure

(Kinda like Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice, shame on me.  We need to try to learn from our mistakes, so we don’t repeat them.  Be well – be wary – and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
