How to Manage Your Monkey Be on the Same Page


In order to get all your monkeys
under control, it is important that everyone in the family be on the same
page.  You can get some of your monkeys
to behave without having 100% buy in from everyone in the family.  However, in order to maximize your monkey
management, it is important that the family is working together as a team.

This is especially important in a
marriage.  If one spouse is trying to
manage money better and the other spouse is interested in spending money
lavishly, there is a definite conflict and it will be an uphill battle for the
frugal spouse, to say the least.

If both members of the couple
agree to work together to better manage the family monkeys, the couple can get
their lives in order, restore peace to the family, and set aside a sizeable
nest egg for the future.

Sit down with your spouse or
significant other and discuss where you are as a couple.  Do you want to grow closer and live a more
comfortable, smoother life?  If so,
working through this course together will help you get there.  If you cannot be on the same page, you may
still benefit somewhat from this course.

Wednesday Hodgepodge 7 December 2016




1.     Let's talk holiday decorating. On a scale of 1-10 where do you fall? (1=Scrooge and 10= Clark Griswold). What's your favorite corner-room-table-space to decorate? Is it done?


27 If we had the money, and I had the health, I would be like the love child of Clark Griswold and Tim Taylor.  Airplanes would have to divert from their flight paths because of all the bright lights.

2. Is there a nativity scene in your decorating somewhere? Post a picture or, if it's special to you in some way, tell us why. Or do both-it's Christmas!

We don’t decorate.  We might put up a tree, but that is about it.  We just don’t have the money for it.

3.  Do you live in a social neighborhood? If so are you glad? If not do you wish you did?

We have a couple of families in our neighborhood that are very nice.  However, we don’t visit much.  It is too hard to get to see them due to health reasons and too much trouble to entertain. 

4.  As the saying goes, 'there's no time like the present'. How does that ring true in your life right now?

Everywhere.  We are not promised tomorrow.  The best time to plant a tree was thirty years ago.  The second best time to plant a tree is right now. 

5. Do you dread Mondays? Why or why not?
Monday, with the exception of the fact we have to go to the hospital every Monday, is just another day.  Since I am disabled, and Suzanne stays home to take care of me, one day is pretty much like the one before it.

6.  Poinsettia, Christmas Cactus, Amaryllis-which on the list is your favorite holiday plant? Are any of these on display in your home right now?

We don’t have any Christmas decorations up at this time.  I love poinsettias.

7. Share a favorite quote from a Christmas movie.

Faith is believing in something when common sense tells you not to.  From Miracle on 34th Street.  The real one.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I would like to ask everyone out there who does pray to please pray for me.  I cannot go into any details right now.  Please pray.  Thanks for your prayers.

Tuesdays with Gindy Big Splinter

One day I saw my father, Robert Bruce McClendon, Jr., changing his socks. There was an odd looking scar across his foot.  I asked him about it. He told me the following story.  I asked my Granny-For-Short about it later and she confirmed the story.

My Grandfather had a general store in Johnston, South Carolina.  His father, Luther Jack McClendon, had a general store in the Red Hill Community near Modoc, South Carolina.  Some called this store a grocery store, but they both sold a little more than just groceries.



My father said that one day he was barefoot and running though his grandfather’s store. He caught a very large splinter from the floor board.  The splinter embedded itself between his great toe and his second toe.  The splinter ran most of the distance of his little foot.

There was no such thing as emergency rooms back then.  There were very few doctors back then as well.  Whatever medical needs you had, you took care of at home.

My father’s family called him R. B because his father was known as Bruce.  Well, little R. B. started bleeding all over the place and Bruce picked him up and carried him to the butcher table.  This was the place where meat was cut up to sell.  My great-grandfather, Luther Jack, took a butcher knife and cut two slits on either side of the splinter from one end of R. B.’s foot to the other. Then, he picked out the splinter.

There was no such thing as Neosporin back then.  At least, there wasn’t in that store.  Great-grandpa Luther had to do something to keep it from getting infected, so he poured kerosene in the wound.

They bandaged R. B. up and off he went.  Aren’t you glad we have progressed in the area of emergency medicine?

Share Your World – 2016 Week 49

What do you value most in a friendship?

I think honesty and integrity are the most important things a friend needs to have.  You need a friend to tell you upfront when you are being stupid.  You also need to know that a friend will be there always.

Suzanne is my best friend.  She has all the traits that a friend needs to have.
Do you prefer eating the frosting of the cake or the cupcake first?  Do you prefer a specific flavor?

I like to try to get a little bit of both on the first bite.  This way, I get to enjoy the flavors together.
Have you ever been in a submarine?  If you haven’t, would you want to?

I have been on an old World War II submarine when I was a kid.  It did not go underwater or even leave the dock.

Today, I have no business being on a submarine.  Our oldest son is in the Navy
and he is stationed on a submarine.  I could not do that.  I just plain could not. 

If 100 people your age were chosen at random, how many do you think you’d find leading a more satisfying life than yours?

I don’t think anyone could be more blessed than me.  I have Jesus.  I have Suzanne.  I have the kids.  That is all anyone could ever hope for.  I cannot imagine it getting any better than that.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

Well, I got that cast off my leg today.  This is a great thing.  I am grateful for one more day on this side of the dirt.  I am also grateful for my wife and kids.

I look forward to getting a few more videos done.  Have a great week.

Combaterwing Mouse Pad

We were asked to review this wonderful mouse pad.  We were sent a review copy from the company so that we could review it at home, over time, and see how well it improved my game.

I, for one, play a lot of Polar Bowler and Polar Golf.  This means that I really don’t have much need for a mouse pad as sophisticated as this.  However, my adult children love to play all types of RPGs and this mouse pad will facilitate that quite well.

The mouse pad is extra large.  This means that it is a little cumbersome if you only have a tight work area.  However, if you are a serious gamer and have the space, this mouse pad is for you.

The biggest problem with most mousepads is you run out of pad before you blast the zombies to smithereens.  Not with this baby. Even if you lose track of where you are on the work area, chances are good you still have some landscape available for your mouse to cover.

We were sent this for the purpose of reviewing the mousepad.  This does not influence our opinion of the product.

MosQuito


We were asked to review a product called MosQuito.  This is a mosquito repellent bracelet that contains all natural products.  Each bracelet is reported to last up to ten days.

It is really too soon to give you a definite yea or nah on this product. 
Here in Gulf Coast Texas, we have tons of mosquitos year round.  It appears that these skeeters love type O+ blood.  I have A+; my wife and our youngest daughter both have O+ blood.

We will be giving this product a workout here on the Gulf Coast over the next several months. 

Check back with us as we report to you what we have found.   We may have to get them to send another pack of these things so we can give you a complete report.






They sent this product to the right place.  If it will work here, in the tropical climate of the Gulf Coast, it will work just about anywhere.

The company sold us a review copy for 1¢. This in no way affects our opinion.

Friendly Fill-Ins 2 December 2016

This is a fun meme co-hosted by McGuffy's Reader and 15 and Meowing. Be sure to visit and join in the fun!

Friday_Fill-In_Badge
Here are the fill-in-the-blanks:
1. I have a hard time finding a gift for Nobody..
We cannot afford to buy gifts for anyone.  We are on a very fixed income.  This means that by the time we pay our monthly expenses there is literally nothing left with which to purchase gifts.  Our kids are all grown now.  They know not to expect anything.

This is very sad.  The saddest time this occurred was one year at Easter, there was no money for Easter baskets.  We explained to the kids the real reason for Easter. They all understood.

However, our oldest daughter scraped together her Easter baskets from years gone by and little toys and made Easter baskets for the others.

2. I have no problem finding a gift for again, nobody..

We are so broke we can’t even afford to pay attention.  We have two girls in college and there just is too much month left at the end of the money.
3. One of the best gifts I ever gave was It is a long story.  I don’t mind tellin’ it..
Many years ago, way back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, my family owned a Western Auto store.  We sold stereos and were constantly looking for something new to play on them to demonstrate the stereos.  I mean, there are just so many times one can listen to Don Ho singing Tiny Bubbles before one loses one’s lunch.
My mother brought her favorite album to the store.  It was a collectors’ edition of Tom Jones Live from Caesar’s Palace.  My mother loved to hear Tom Jones sing.

My father was the world’s number one salesman.  He would do anything to close a deal. 

Well, he was closing the deal on a stereo, one of those cheap disco machine kind with the rotating mirror balls with multi-color lights that were so popular with us taste-deprived rednecks way back when. 

The person bought and my father decided to sweeten the deal by throwing in the album they had been listening to.
My mom was not happy.

Fast forward about six years and I was living in Columbia, South Carolina.  I searched through all the used record stores I could find and finally found a like-new copy of the album.  I gave it to my mother.

4. One of the best gifts I ever received was Suzanne. .
On 3 November 1984, Suzanne’s daddy gave her to me.  This was the second best gift I ever received.  The best gift I ever received is the gift of Salvation.  Father God gave His Son, Jesus Christ, to save us all of our sins.
