I wanted to share my stats with everyone from 2013! I am truly blown away by the numbers! My humble thanks for signing up to follow me, or for just stopping by! And, thank you to WordPress for my report!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 45,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 17 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Click here to see the complete report.

I appreciate you visiting today! Let’s see what I can come up with for 2014! Any requests? 🙂 Hugs to all and my thanks again! ^..^

Escape can mean many things, and this is the subject of this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge! One can escape from the tedium of every day life, or escape can be just a release, or to get away from danger. For this week’s challenge let’s escape to…

One of my favorite ways to escape is to go on a fishing trip! I sure wish I was on this boat!

Gone fishing!

Sometimes one needs a break from day to day life. What could be better than a friend calling and saying, “Hey, let’s go fly somewhere shall we?”

How would you like to have your own private island to escape to?

Sometimes one just needs a change of scenery, so they escape the confines of one area and head out to another!

When we look around us the earth shows us the release of pressure. This results in steam escaping the earth…

Pressure can cause other things to escape, like the juice of grapes going through a press.

In my own backyard, escape can be getting away from danger.

Growing up I was brought up to respect my elders. Were you? I am curious about this because today I witnessed something between two people, one younger, one older, that disturbed me immensely. So much so, that I thought that I would write a blog about this issue.

I learned through my life that there is a certain wisdom that a person achieves as one grows older. As a matter of fact I wrote about this in my blog “The Buffalo Side of Double Nickels.” Knowledge comes with age. However, not everyone gets it.

When I was growing up I thought that I knew it all. My parents were wrong about everything. But as I added on the years, while I was not always given a reason why to do or not to do something by my parents or other elders, I began to discover the way of things in the world. I learned and I learned a lot of lessons the hard way. And I learned a lot from folks older than me, which reinforced why I should respect my elders.

One thing that I have learned living the buffalo side of double nickels, is that one does not denigrate anyone in anyway in front of other people. Doing so just makes you a bully. And we have all read plenty in the news recently about bullying. I learned that if you have something to say to someone, and you are not in agreement, or what you have to say is negative, you do this face to face and not in front of others. Doing so will make you appear to be the small person that you really are.

One thing that I do know is this: Listen to what someone older than you says to you. And, think about why they are saying to you what they are saying to you. Are they trying to help you grow? Are they trying to impart the experience of their years to you? Respect their experience! And respect that they are trying to help you from possibly making mistakes.

What do you think?

I look forward to your answers and comments.  This poll will accumulate data for a period of one week only.
