This I’ve Learned

about finding something I didn’t remember I had. Normally, that would’ve been a good thing, but it upset me. Just the other day I needed it and was wishing I had one. I realized that if you have something and you don’t remember you have it, that’s same as not having it. Gosh, now I wonder how many other things I don’t have that I really do have.

Pumpkins are actually fruit and are 90% water, so after carving they usually last only three days to a week. Surface carve instead of cutting all the way through will make it last longer. Putting a candle inside will shorten the life span. For a bright, shiny finish, spray Armor All on the pumpkin and rub it in. If you decide to paint it for decoration, use a water-based latex paint and wait at least an hour after carving.

Want to know the difference between the young and the old?

When I was a kid, nobody died; but now it happens all the time.

Self-control is keeping yourself from telling others how much you know.
To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.
