In Times Like These

I was introduced to a blog site by my good friend Motor called Raz Visioneering. There is a link to his blog here on this blog and I ask that everyone read his article/post called"It`s a law of the Universe" and here`s just a taste of what RAZ writes:

January 19, 1998 – Roy Miller wrote in his Monday Morning Memo – “Moments of emotional recovery are the best times to think about problems you have not been able to solve. Great, creative insights follow times of great stress. It’s a law of the universe.”Some of you are on the verge of some of the greatest, most creative moments of your life. Some of you have had long…trying…draining…moments of stress. Unlike anything you have ever experienced in your life or perhaps unlike anything you will ever experience again. You have to know and you have to realize that while the moment you have been enduring may seem incredibly tough…you are about to experience one of the most creative and perhaps the greatest moment of your life..........Click on the Raz link for the rest.

In addition I would like to share this with you, a framed copy of this hangs at my front door as a reminder to always do the right thing.


People are unreasonable, illogical & self -centered.

Love Them Anyway

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.

Be Kind Anyway

If you are successful, you will win some false friends & some true enemies.

Succeed Anyway

The good you do will be forgotten tomorrow.

Do Good Anyway

Honesty an frankness make you vulnerable.

Be Honest And Frank Anyway

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.

Build Anyway

People need help but may attack you if you try to help them.

Help Them Anyway

In the final analysis, it is between you & God;

It Was Never Between You And Them ANYWAY

I have to be honest, I can’t stop reading!

Novels really don’t do it for me, I need to be learning and adding value to my life and the lives of others so I read the other stuff. I decided to start a list of books so that anyone can see what I read and pick some for themselves if they choose. Also I have found that the price of a book can vary alot! so here are my thoughts on buying books.

1. Only pay full retail in emergency, got to have it now, can’t wait another second, I don’t have a book with me type situations.

2. Shop for books at 2nd hand stores like salvation army thrift stores, Goodwill, bargain books, used book stores etc. and be ready to buy when the price is good. It’s better to have good bargain books on my shelf than to pay full retail.

3. Shop Online. There are so many great sites with great deals on new and used books, and don’t be afraid to buy used, most sites give a very accurate description of condition.

4. Share books with others. If I find a book at a great price, I’ll buy two and give one to a friend. Whats cool is I have friends who do the same with me!

Share: Please share the places you buy books in the comments so that all of us can get the best deals.
Thanks in advance.
