Someone forgot!!!!!!!

All the  knowledge of the older workers was stored in their minds and know how, people skills and gifts of talent were also  stored in their hearts.

Not written in books or filed on computers or put in training manuals.

Plug The Brain Drain

Plug The Brain Drain. With 77 million Boomers on the cusp of retirement, that these workers will take with them could create an enormous brain drain for US in the country is most at risk because its employees tend to be older. of award-winning local programming as well as the finest programs from PBS.

But we are younger and smarter with all the computer inventions !!!!!!!!! But who has all the knowledge of that Company/Business? The older baby boomers who are all retiring 40 or 60% at a time. The Businesses just started waking up with a big oooopppppps! lol Yes, the older ways of letting the young train with/under the older skilled worker was very wise.

8 Ways Exercise Makes You Gorgeous

Anyone who makes a habit of going to the gym, unfurling a yoga mat or hiking in the woods is privy to a secret known only to the physically active: The rewards of exercise extend far beyond slimming down or adding muscle tone. Dozens of subtle changes visibly revamp the body and the psyche in ways scientists are only beginning to understand.
Maybe your skin looks brighter, your step is springier or you’re more confident at work. Such small victories may go unnoticed by unobservant exercisers, but those on the lookout for these benefits will find them every bit as valid as gains measured by scales and calipers.
Scientists chalk up such fitness boons to a range of powerful physiological and biochemical processes triggered by regular exercise. “Every cell in the human body benefits from physical activity,” says Tim Church, MD, PhD, the director of preventative medicine at Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, La. And, he says, you feel tangible rewards right away. “Within an hour of exercising, you feel less anxious; that night you sleep better; and for 72 hours afterward your body processes blood sugar more efficiently.”
Need more incentive to lace up your sneakers? Here’s a peek into a few of the ways exercise can make you look and feel fantastic.
1. Smoother, More Radiant Skin
Working up a good sweat is the equivalent of getting a mini-facial, says Audrey Kunin, MD, a dermatologist in Kansas City, Mo., and author of The DERMAdoctor Skinstruction Manual (Simon & Schuster, 2005). “When the pores dilate, sweat expels trapped dirt and oil. Just be sure to wash your face afterward so the gunk doesn’t get sucked back into the pores.”

Breaking a sweat isn’t the only way exercise benefits the skin — it also reduces bodywide inflammation, helps regulate skin-significant hormones and prevents free-radical damage. When you exercise, the tiny arteries in your skin open up, allowing more blood to reach the skin’s surface and deliver nutrients that repair damage from the sun and environmental pollutants. These nutrients also rev up the skin’s collagen production, thwarting wrinkles. “As we age, fibroblasts [the collagen-producing cells in the skin] get lazier and fewer in number,” Kunin says. “But the nutrients delivered to the skin during exercise help fibroblasts work more efficiently, so your skin looks younger.”

Friday continued .........

Yes, She was on the cell phone with her Dad. 

First, he wanted her To look under my car's hood to take a picture of the engine. As Her Dad seemed to want them or me to start the car?????? 
 The two were both asking what type of engine I had. I could see where they were going. I told them it was fuel injected but no...... they were going to prove I was wrong.  I popped the hood and her husband said, Yes,  it was fuel injected. She said her dad said it was not!

I told them that no one was going to start my car with water in my gas tank. That I was glad I had seen her son do it, as I could have come out to go some where and started up my car not knowing.

The husband had me unlock the gas cap I had put back on, so he could siphon off some gas to see if water was mixed in it ...... causing a white foam. 

But heck gas and water do not mix!

So, he cannot get his siphon hose down into my tank as it is too short.

He gets the yellow hose to prove her son could not have gotten water in my tank . See it does not even reach the car! Then suddenly it is even shorter!!!!!  Yeah look at that and gets real loud! See it does not even go across parking lot to your car! and he looks at her standing behind me taking video with her cell phone. He gives it a big jerk to prove the point even more and goes flying to my car and into gas tank! He is so startled and looks back at their home and here comes my son walking out from behind their car. The husband had the yellow hose wrapped around their car's tire and my son unwrapped it. LOL So that was  why it got even shorter before it suddenly went all the way over to my car:)  LOL

Then a another neighbour came over to get into fixing my gas tank:) LOL Whoa ...... they were becoming out numbered. Then she saw my son's girlfriend. Do you live here? No! Then the neighbors wife came over with their little boy. :)

I am thinking ...... there is a G-D !!!!!!!  ...... Thank You! 

The husband is now draining my tank with the neighbors help of going in by filter and using switch to force gas out onto the pavement at curb, not into the gas cans they had? The other neighbor drained it to Empty.

Then The woman went to get new gas but she had to run an errand first? So my son stayed till she got back. He then took my car to finish filling it up with the High octane.  He took so long, the husband was now afraid  that my car broke down now, so he went looking for my son.

Yes, Gads What a Friday that was, when a six year old decided to play in my yard!

Gads, What a Friday!!!!!!

Gads, What a Friday!!!!!! First I thought someone was ripping my home apart with all the noise . I find a little 6 year old boy has a long yellow water hose and is spraying my home and roof but with high pressure! I look out again and find he has it in at my gas tank on my car playing gas station! He got the locked gas cap off! I banged on my window first before heading out to get to him. He and another little friend tap their shirts with their finger in the motion of. Me? Do you mean me? At least that is what it use to mean. Well, they took off running leaving the hose behind, as I made my way to the door to get to them!

First I called my son on his cell phone:) and had to leave a message, then I called the  parks office. Shirley told me to call the Sheriffs Department and she would be right over. So I call them and when they found my # was in Greene County. They had me call 911 ? But ..... to say it was not an Emergency and they would send an Sheriff's deputy out to my home. They were pretty fast! 

They had asked if the mother was home with the child at 911.  Well, Officer then was there  and as he looked at the hose, water on the pavement and at curb he was taking down my personal information.  At that moment the mother walks by their car that is now there and parked over the water hose. He calls out to her, asks if she is the mother, asks her over to talk with us.  Then he takes her personal info also. As they are new neighbors and she has a new cell phone rather then a land phone, she did not know her number and had to look it up. She did not like giving her info in front of me, as you could see it up set her as she looked at the officer. Her last name and sons was different. No, I am older now and I did not memorize it all, so no worries there:)

She called out to some teen walking by on another street and asked him to send her son home. When he arrives she asks him if he poured water into my gas tank with the hose . He admits by saying, "Yes' in a small voice, all the time looking at the Deputy. Her shoulders slump! She starts blaming the neighborhood kids for it all and their fat 500 pound parents for not watching their own kids, for teaching him bad things? When he did it himself, not them and who was watching him as he played at my yard? As I was down for my afternoon nap!

The Deputy asked if he had been in trouble before. His Mother said , "No" Good said the officer, As what he just did was very serious and was destruction of property. That My car had to be drained of all gas and he went over all the things/ details that needed to be done. She said her dad was a Mechanic? [That word is thrown around alot! :)***** Another story for that one.*****] That he could drain my tank and fix the problem. That they would pay for it all, new gas and can Heat ? or other drier for tank. So Officer said I  had a choice . I could file charges against the boy right now or wait to see if they really would fix the problem and if they did not, to contact the Sheriffs office and take them to Court To sue the mom for her sons wrong doings.

I said as their son was only 6 years old and had no record. I would give her a chance to keep her word. So he said to keep my slip handy with his name and case number. She said she would get a hold of her dad and then contact me.

 This is a long story but I am very tired now, so will be back with the update. Slick in how they tried to get out of it with taking false cell phone pictures or video:) So glad my son rushed over! Okay, will be back later!
