Quotes of Note and Helpful Hints

I'm sure that someday children in schools will study the history of the men who made war as you study an absurdity. They'll be shocked, just as today we're shocked with cannibalism. (I hope you were right, Golda.)

Golda Meir, Israeli Prime Minister (1898-1978)

Every creature is better alive than dead, men and moose and pine trees, and he who understands it aright will rather preserve its life than destroy it. (Are you listening, Sarah Palin?)

Henry David Thoreau, naturalist and author (1817-1862)

Want to know how to keep your tall boots looking good?  Buy a foam
"noodle" used as a swimming pool toy, and cut them to fit the height of your boots. They will stand tall and stay looking nice. When I went shoe shopping yesterday, I realized just how much the shoe stores could benefit from that tip, especially with "over the knee" boots.

Need to remove Magic Marker?  Use toothpaste! (But don't use the whitening type!)

Yes I fear Golda was a shade optimistic. Sadly.

I love the Golda Meir quote, and the toothpaste remedy!

Love the quotes and only hope Golda was right. Somehow I don't see it in my lifetime.
Happy New Year to the Kenjus.

I like those first two quotes, a lot! Too bad Sarah Palin is not a Thoreau follower...!

I don't know what a "noodle" is...I will Google it and find out...lol!

Wow Judy, I like this...she probably isn't listening becuase she's too busy grabbing attention to herself!
Anyway, I hope you found what you are looking for with that Christmas money and I want to wish you a blessed New year...Thank you for all your visits and encouragement!
