A few photos and a friday thought on the 11/11/11

Found a lovely holly bush

the pomegranates are starting to lose their leaves

the passion fruit is flowering and the fruit is starting to grow

there is a cat up the tree

" I didn't do it"

" I did and aren't I a clever dog"
I can't tell him to pick on somone his own size.

You don't actually have to take the quiz. Just read straight through, and you'll get the point, an awesome one. .....

Take this quiz:
1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America contest.
4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor actress.
6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.
How did you do?
The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are
no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields.
But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten.
Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:
1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.

2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel, appreciated and special.
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.
6. Name half a dozen heroes whose stories have inspired you. Easier? 

The lesson: The people who make a difference in your life are not
the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones that care.
Pass this on to those people who have made a difference in your life.

  1. Love the cat in the tree with the dogs underneath and one of them even owned up.

  2. That is one good quiz! I guess that shows what is really important in this world.......

  3. Haha ~ it looks like kitty outsmarted those pups! Nice and safe up a tree!

    That is a great little quiz ~ and so true!

    Happy Weekend Cathy!

  4. Enjoyed the photos...I have a feeling that kitty will find a quietly devious way to turn the tables on the K-9! Yes I did much better with the second half of the quiz...and I'm going to pass it on (Facebook). Want to raise some veggies in pots this winter...things that are cold hardy...just need to find out what grows best during a west central Florida winter!

  5. Nice pictures, fruit growing... our season is definitely over :( Cute pics of the pets!

    A real good post, Cathy!

  6. Loved the tale of why the cat was up in the tree as told by the dogs. Your veg garden is going to be so exciting once all your seeds grow.
