It’s a lot easier to roast marshmallows on a gas range than on an electric range.
There is plenty of advice to go around at graduation time, such as follow your dreams, work hard, be yourself, etc.
But the most important advice I can give to this year’s graduates heading into the world is to save a little money from each paycheck, even though the amount put away may be small. Don’t wait until later, because later gets here faster than you can know.
Have you ever wondered how much it would cost to watch television if there were no commercials?
A lot of times I wonder about things, and then just out of the blue the answer comes.
I mentioned the Hispanic radio station last week. In Saturday’s Eagle I learned that 106.5 used to be a country format and is now “La Maquina Musical” (The Music Machine). With the dynamic growth of the Hispanic population in Kansas, it was reported that there will be a Spanish weekly newspaper starting up soon as well.
This is what is so great about America. When there is a need for something, the opportunity is also there for someone to fill it.
I was reading about the new farm program in Sunday’s Eagle and that no one seems to be able to figure out what it means. It may be at least three to four months until the local agencies will be able to understand and implement it.
Isn’t there a better way to make it work?
This is the first graduation I can remember that wasn’t uncomfortable in the high school gym due to the heat.
In fact a woman I know said, “It was the first time it wasn’t so sticky hot that my underwear didn’t have to be rearranged when I stood up.”
Let’s say you hired my company to do a specific job within a 90-day period with a budgeted amount of funds to do the project. But because I didn’t want to deal with part of the task at hand, I put it off until the end and ran out of time. I then worked another month or so and billed you for the additional time at “whatever the cost”-a cost that you weren’t counting on paying for.
You probably wouldn’t be too pleased nor give me the job next time it came around.
“Waiter, there’s a fly that is bothering me.”
“Would you like for me to call a police officer, sir?”
