***Win A Shiny New Dime!***

In some respects, it hasn't been a great day. I stayed home from work with what may or may not turn out to be the first cold of the season. The hot water heater broke before I could take a shower. Early into nap #1 repairmen came to tear off the building's old gutters and put new ones into their place. I asked them (politely) if they would use rubber hammers but was repeatedly ignored. Lousy movies all day on TMC. However, between nap #2 and nap #3 I did venture out into the beautiful California weather to take some photos.

Identify the location of the above photo
and a shiny new dime can be yours!

There's other good news as well. Tonight I cooked some delicious BBQ chicken in my slow cooker. Adding apricot preserves to the sauce was a good move. Early tomorrow morning I intend to go Lake Hollywood to take some more photos. Later in the afternoon the Netflix people tell me I will be receiving "Napoleon Dynamite", a movie I've never seen but am looking forward to.

And let's not forget what Thich Nhat Hanh says:

Be yourself.
Life is precious as it is.
All the elements
for your happiness
are already here.
There is no need
to run, to strive, search or struggle.
Just be.

Hi Kev, I totally stole your words by Thich Nhat Hanh and put them in my blog. Reading them makes me feel calm.

That's cool but the really life-afffirming link (video) is "Happy Couple". You'll really like it.

That guy's shirt says, "TOE". :-)

I'm stealing that quote, too, Kevin, thanks. Please keep reading books so we don't have to!

Not as easy as Thich Nhat makes it sound... But a worthy aspiration. Thanks for posting this wonderful quote.
