Are you one of the millions of baby boomers who has worked all of your life and looking forward to the day when you can retire and enjoy your leisure only to find yourself restless and bored now the time has finally come? Why not look into volunteering as a way of enriching your life. While at the same time, providing support and assistance to others in need?

The secret of success is to start from scratch and keep on scratching. Hard work means nothing to a hen. Regardless of what business prognosticators say about the price of eggs- regardless of what others expect of her- regardless of fluctuations in the Commodities Market- she keeps on digging worms and laying eggs. If the ground is hard she scratches harder. If it’s dry, she digs deeper. If it is wet, she digs around it. If she gets a few more hours of daylight in the barnyard, she digs a few more hours. Have you ever seen a pessimistic hen? Have you ever seen a hen cackle in disgust at the prospect of her job? Did you ever hear one cluck because the work was hard, the conditions were poor, and some of her eggs were taken from her before they hatched? No. Hens save their breath for digging. They save their cackles for the eggs that are laid. Farmers don’t have chickens running at large anymore today. Most chickens are caged for better egg production. There are few people with some chickens yet, but not like years ago.

July 4th we celebrated the 239th birthday of our country in many ways. Some attended Patriotic Services, Barbecues, boating, fireworks etc over the weekend. Now back to work.

Success in marriage is more than finding the right person. It’s becoming the right person.
