As for trivial pursuits I have to admit that this is slightly more exciting than counting the number of holes in a ceiling tile. :thumbsup:

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

It was your mention of 'Trivial pursuits" that started the idea for the 'Trivia' thread, dc3! :thumbsup: :flowers:

It is fascinating that in nature we find all sorts of magic and there isn't a single time that I see a bird soaring in flight or zipping here and there that I don't marvel at them and envy their ability.
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.
