Just a reminder my book Thoughts for 100 Sabbath Days can be ordered on

I have to confess that it was while I was listening to General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints that for some reason I started writing down little sayings which kept popping into my mind. Actually, it was just after I had applied some sports cream to my neck and then finished the task I had gone into the bathroom to do. Two days later I decided to start sharing these ditties on Face Book.

After two plus months of sharing I realized that the vast majority of my friends probably haven't had the _________ (fill in appropriate word or phrase – blessing, plague, annoyance, amusement, boredom) of reading these sayings of mine, since many of you who receive my email blast are not on Face Book or do not visit that site very often.

An appropriate disclaimer must be attached: As I have stated before, I am absolutely sure that all of my thoughts have been stimulated by some previous learning experience in my life and, therefore, I claim that whatever I share is that which comes out of my mind when I begin to write and I further claim zero belief that in any way it contains original thought.
