This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKING…
about the e-mail newsletter I get every Thursday called Suddenly 65.   It lists events available in the surrounding areas for folks over 65. It’s loaded with valuable information. To receive it free, sign-up at info@suddenly65.com. Of course many of you don’t live in this area, but often there’s other interesting information.
This past week it mentioned a great resource- Explore.org. It has all sorts of different nature-based live camera feeds from around the world. It’s fascinating. I love it.  If you’re looking for a fun way to occupy your ‘stay at home’ time, just google Explore.org.

KEEP A HAPPY FACE
Save for something you really want.
Ask yourself. How much will it matter two years from now?

YOU KNOW YOU ARE GETTING OLD…
when you open your outgoing mail by mistake.
when you feel bad in the morning and didn’t have fun the night before.

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE

HINTS FOR CUT FLOWERS
If cut flowers need a longer stem to fit in vase, put in a plastic drinking straw cut to the length you want.
Don’t put cut flowers near a bowl of fruit that give off an ethylene gas.
Put an aspirin in the water to help flowers stay fresh longer.

    Didn’t know about putting an aspirin in water for cut flowers. Thank you Theresa. To prolong life of my cut flowers, particularly roses, I put the vase outside for the night. In Camarillo the nights are cool. Small vases go overnight in the fridge.
    So far, I haven’t opened outgoing mail. That’s funny!
    Theresa, your blog always lifts my spirit. Keep up the positive work.
