12 Rules for Living.

My wise and wonderful friend Jerry Hayes sent me his rules for living he obtained from the Hudson Institute. After years as a successful businessman, he spends his retired years fixing up old cars and donating them to those who, without his generosity could not own a car.

Everything Around Us is Made Up OF Energy...including you

Read yesterday's blog that tests your courage to see things differently. If you had the courage to read it, you will begin to see why the statement below is so powerful.
