  1. Time and Money

    by , 12-20-2017 at 09:20 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I recently commented using the old saw "Time is Money", and the person I was speaking to disagreed. While the two are not identical, they have equivalency; one can be converted to the other as a general matter.

    "The phrase was coined by Benjamin Franklin in his Advice to a Young Tradesman (1748): Remember that time is money. He that idly loses five shillings' worth of time loses five shillings, and might as prudently throw five shillings into the sea." ...

    An angel.

    Iím getting later and later doing this. I donít do it during the day in case I donít feel like writing up the last missed thing which was my little cousinís birthday. Itís a bit long and Iím still feeling drained from yesterday. So I wait and see what happens in the day so I can write about that if need be.

    Iíve been a bit annoyed with myself. I did things yesterday but not today and I only got up an hour later but I went to bed about the same time, maybe ...

    Well. I think itís supposed to be a shepherd, since the little piece by piece story behind every door is a slice of this Christmas story and today says ďShepherds were living outside the town, guarding their sheepĒ. But it has a cute little moustache and a big round nose so it looks more like an otter playing dress up. But I think itís definitely supposed to be a shepherd. Not sure what heís holding though.

    I was a shepherd once in the school nativity so I know. ...

    (Alternative title: Itís Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas Tree)

    It was another big one today. A lovely little reindeer face with long curly antlers. That would look lovely as a little cake topper too.

    I am so so happy today. The cards are no longer my problem

    I stamped them before bed and left everything and I mean EVERYTHING mum would need to fill out the cards.
    I left the cards on my desk in a neat little pile. I laid out all three ...
