Thought for the day….

Good Tuesday Morning … the date is March 27th, 2012.

I still am in awe that we are in 2012 …. seems like only yesterday that we were preparing for the new millennium.

Do you remember the hype, anxiety and excitement that surrounded going from 1999 to 2000?

At the end of it all when the clock struck midnight on December 31st, 1999 ….. the world was still operating, and we were fine.

I am so grateful that I was alive to bring in the new millennium.  Very exciting.

I only wish that my grandmother had lived for a few more years to bring in the year 2000.

She had been born in 1901 and passed away in 1998.

When I think back to all of the things that she experienced during her lifetime  ….  being one of the first women to have her own car(s), man walking on the moon, beginning of the technology age, and first computers.

So much to even remember…..

So take a moment or two and think about all of the changes since you were born……. it seems like everyday there is something new and exciting.

I hope that you have fun remembering ….

Have a great day.

Perhaps you would like to drop me a line and let me know what your favourite / most interesting invention or change/update has been?

Special Hello to:  all those inventors…… idea people …… you rock.

“Gotta run” ….

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Wednesday morning, and today is March 14th, 2012.

What do you think about “intelligence” and “imagination?”

Do you think that intelligence could be limiting?

While imagination could be endless?

I started to listen to a well respected man speak last night on television about just this ….. while I did not listen to the whole program as it was near bed-time, what he said made sense.

Really when you think about it …. our imaginations are what built skyscrapers, created computers,  and put man on the moon ….. the ability to think outside the box (outside our brain, our intelligence …. is using our imagination).

Definitely food for thought ….. having a great imagination is definitely a good thing.

So take five minutes everyday and imagine …. imagine yourself, your perfect self …. imagine your life, your perfect life …… SEE ….. so easy..

Whatever you want to create …. use your imagination …. that is why we have one …. so USE IT.

Have a great day.

Special Hello: to all those creative folk and to all those who are beginning to see the light ….. you are a creative genius… YAY. Congratulations.

Always, Carol and Alvin (who has decided this morning to sit on my lap as I am typing my “thought for the day”….. not easy to type with a dog on your lap but definitely comforting….. I love my Alvin….  🙂

P.S.  I am going to make sure that I use my imagination more …… like everyday…. let us see what we can create….
