new feature here at the blog- and you can thank my buddy thornie for this one- only the good fridays. fridays tend to be 'dump the crap' news days because it's the weekend- and hey, we don't want to be hassled. so, this was the idea behind the day and i couldn't agree more:
"We are living in some pretty negative times, aren’t we? You can’t pick up a newspaper or turn on the television without hearing more bad news about the economy, the war, the stock market, the political candidates. I think that many of us are living in a state of fear (though I’m in the state of Texas).
Fear feeds upon itself. It’s like a contagious virus. I’m tired of adding to it. I want to start another kind of “virus.”
You see, I think that optimism can be contagious, too. If we consciously try to look at the good in the world around us, it will become easier to see."
