Great News!

“Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect.

It means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections.”

I got good news yesterday afternoon from my gastro-intestinal Doc. The biopsy on the troublesome polyp is benign so thankfully there is no oncologist in my future. It still has to be removed.…

Yesterday I said I would do it tomorrow but now it is today not tomorrow

"You may delay, but time will not."

Benjamin Franklin

I am busy and somewhat distracted today and must leave for a meeting. I do feel the need to get my taxes done as well and hopefully today I will learn about my next medical adventure. So rather than try to come up with a new Daily I found this one from…

I wish I knew what they meant!

Anthony Robbins



Busy day today, I am off to cardiac rehab at 6 AM then a blood draw to see if I have…

Wanna feel good?

We get to make a living; we give to make a life.

Winston Churchill

This coming Thursday I will be sharing with a number of guests at my weekly Kiwanis meeting why I have been a Kiwanis member for more than thirty years. It has not always been easy to stay active as my business and travel coupled with post…

DRATZ again

He who fears he shall suffer, already suffers what he fears.


I made it back from my special assignment which took me to Michigan where their traditional cold and blustery March weather was replaced with balmy days with temperatures in the 80’s. While there we invested some of our money in games of…

Free Medicine for you

Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine.

Lord Byron

One of the benefits I get from putting the Daily together is the constant reminder not to take life too seriously. The balance I try to provide by including some humor is as much for me as it is for you. I find that a daily dose of laughter is as…

Time to laugh and dance in the meadow

The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers.




I am not sure about global warming but I am positive about Indianapolis warming. Here we are in the middle of traditionally blustery March and our temperatures are in the high 70’s…

Happy days are here again if you want them!

Act happy, feel happy, be happy, without a reason in the world. Then you can love, and do what you will.

Dan Millman

We’ve talked a lot about happiness lately and yet it still eludes many of us. I wonder if some of us don’t recognize the opportunities to enjoy or days when they appear. I even wonder if some of…

They bring joy to a troubled world!

I brought children into this dark world because it needed the light that only a child can bring.

Liz Armbruster

I can’t talk right now, I am off to exercise and then on to meetings. Since my day includes some mystery I don’t want to take a chance on missing the Daily so I have instructed my crack staff to…

I have a great collection, thank you!

"Friends are the Angels that help you fly"

I have been thinking lately about how fortunate I am to have met and been with so many interesting people. Many have become good friends while others enrich my life by sharing their wisdom and opening up new opportunities for…

I like the new me!

It is amazing how much crisper the general experience of life becomes when your body is given a chance to develop a little strength.

Frank Duff,

Today I move to a new regimen in my effort to sustain the health gains I have made over the last 3 months. I have lost twenty pounds so far and plan on losing more. I…

Did you decide to be happy?

"Those who wish to sing always find a song."

Swedish proverb



I have often been asked over the years why it is that I seem happier than most, especially when faced with adversity. I have even been accused by docs and nurses of being a little bit weird since I…

Ray is taking the day off!

"Actually ideas are everywhere. It's the paperwork, that is, sitting down and thinking them into a coherent story, trying to find just the right words, that can and usually does get to be labor."

Fred Saberhagen

I have a case of writers block today; I hope you will forgive me. I had thought of sending you a blank sheet Daily…

Are you really you?

The great majority of us are required to live a life of constant duplicity.  Your health is bound to be affected if, day after day, you say the opposite of what you feel, if you grovel before what you dislike, and rejoice at what brings you nothing but misfortune.

Boris Pasternak

During a conversation with a friend the other…

Are you a good juggler?

Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.

Robert Fulgham

Lately I have noticed that a lot of the folks I know are unbelievably busy. The more I have talked to many of them the more I realize that it not only is…

Those of you who have been reading the Daily for a while have occasionally heard me talk about the legacy we will leave behind at the end of our time. Many measure their anticipated legacy by how much material things they will…

No person has the right to rain on your dreams.

Welcome March!

Springtime is the land awakening.  The March winds are the morning yawn.

Wow! Yesterday was the last day of February and it was sunny and almost 70 degrees Fahrenheit outside. I don’t know how it is where you are at but it looks like winter chose to spend it’s time in Europe this year and not…
