    If you could do your life all over again? what would you do different?

    Nothing. Everything I did ended up with Jack. So at least up until two years ago I'm good and I can't think of anything in that span worth worrying over...well, I'd have checked the genre and length on middle grade fiction.

    No not really. But someone would say, "You wouldn't the same mistakes." No, I'd make new ones.


    .....O LORD my God, in You I put my trust. Psalm 7:1
    .....To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
    Psalm 25:1

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~ Leo Buscaglia

    The best portion of a personís life -- are the little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love. ~ William Wordsworth

    Americans (as in the people of the U.S.) don't think about other nations at all. We believe that the U.S. is better than everywhere else in every possible way and that everyone else on Earth wants to be here. So why bother with 'being nice' to them?

    Of course they do. Being famous is like being a god here in the U. S. of A. We love famous people. We worship them. Especially if they're very rich as well as famous.

    As an American, I just assume no one would go there, otherwise. Does anyone actually go there? Where is Australia, anyway?

    Reminds me of a funny quote.
    In my twenties I worried about what people thought about me.
    In my thirties I decided to no longer care about what people thought about me.
    In my forties I found out they weren't even thinking about me anyway.
    ... So in my fifties I just stopped thinking all together.

    Well just to be clear, I LOVE my kids, but with hind sight being 20/20, I would NOT have married their mother. Should have listened to that 'still small voice' that warned me.

    BUT, I L O V E my kids!


    But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. 1 Peter 3:15 (NIV)
    Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 2 Tim 2:15 (NIV)
    For this very reason, make every effort by your faith to produce virtue, by virtue knowledge, 6 by knowledge self-control, by self-control steadfastness, by steadfastness godliness, 7 by godliness brotherly affection, and by brotherly affection love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will make you effective and productive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 1:5-8 (NIV)

    Well, we had a lot of French here at one point, but they wouldn't talk to anyone else...the Brits have more important things to worry about, like dental insurance...we couldn't keep the Germans from posting in ALL CAPS so they had to go...Australians have the right sense of humor to make it here. I knew it the moment I saw what you people call bears.

    Do Americans think that hosting other nations as friends is worth while.
    Americans are like Democrats or snowflakes without all the snow. What I mean is that it's nearly impossible to find two of us that actually think alike, at least when you start in on details, which bores half of us to begin with...

    All our famous beings from down under tend to end up living on your famous soil! As feathers in your cap!
    Same thing with Canadians, though they mostly do it to escape the French among them and to live free, call bacon what it is, that sort of thing.

    Over here where I live, the radio stations reminded us to extend a warm welcome to our international guests!
    Here they mostly remind us to stock up on ammo.

    Almost everything, with the exception of meeting my wife and having our kids---and, of course, all of this assumes that I would have a completely different personality!

    I would do exceptionally in high school; earn awesome scholarships; attend Oxford University; write a novel before the age of twenty-five; save money from every paycheck I ever received in order to build a substantial savings at a relatively early age; exercise and eat well over the entire course of my life (this would really require a different personality), etc., etc., etc.

    Getting older is a curse.
