Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it. If you are unsure if it is ok to read, save yourself and me the grief and heartache, and ask first!!! Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment. It does not represent objective news, the whole of what I think of a topic or someone, or even a thought-out representation of any of the above. Keep that in mind. Thanks. * Here is a Diary Etiquette Read Me.

Des Brins de Sagesse Acquis Cette Semaine

Spaghetti cooks best when you put it INTO the water (I started reading diaries for the amount of time I thought it would take for the spaghetti to be cooked, and then when I went into the kitchen I realized that I was only cooking the water into the air! oops!)

Fresh strawberries are best eaten IMMEDIATELY, or the slugs will take that advice instead. Greedy things!

Leaf miners on swiss chard in the garden are only one step behind scale insects on tropical indoor plants on the Wench's Evil Insect Scale.

If you want to send people emails and get replies it is best not to call them bedshitters or tell them they have dramaridden pigeontoed asses. Yup.

It is best to turn off the Radio Shack electric coffee cup warmer when you go to bed, or the hot Lipton's instant ice tea in the cup will turn into hot instant ice tea syrup.

A half-pound of organic butter lasts longer if you do not put it on your bread 1/8- 1/4 inch thick.

Putting clothes into the clothesdryer instead of on the line DOES do a better job of removing cat hair dog hair and lint. yup.

If you swear and grumble, it will not stop cats from pissing on everything all over the house or outside. But you can always do it anyways.

If you yell at someone in the winter for pissing in the park in the middle of the day, they will probably remember your face come June. If you are reminded of it, it is not really in their best interests. Especially if you thought they were ok, and then are reminded that they piss in the park and scream and shout. btw saying "dogs piss all over" is not a good argument for human beings pissing in public everywhere. By this logic, human beings should be on a leash, should not be allowed into restaurants or shops, and can be shut inside without access to a toilet opportunity for 8 hours plus every day. Bad bad logic.

If a dog digs up and mangles all your tomatoes, it cannot hurt to put them in water. If you are REALLY lucky, ONE will grow roots out of its stem and you will smile and be happy cuz you can replant it.

That is the end of the learned wisdom today since this time I really DID put the spaghetti INTO the water to cook, and you know we hate mushy spaghetti!! (actually I lie, it is spaghettini, which is much nicer!)
