Today is National Electricity Day

In 1752, during a thunderstorm in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Benjamin Franklin flew a kite to prove that lightning is electricity (an iron key suspended from the kite attracted a lightning bolt).

"There are two ways of being happy: We must either diminish our wants or augment our means - either may do - the result is the same and it is for each man to decide for himself and to do that which happens to be easier."

-- Benjamin Franklin

A quote I love:

“The question is not what you look at but what you see.”

- Henry David Thoreau

At my house, a difference of opinion always results in a game of this. Real hands, of course.

Good things to always remember:

"The kinder and more thoughtful a person is, the more kindness they can find in other people."

Leo Tolstoy
1828-1910, Novelist and Philosopher

"The only place where your dream becomes impossible is in your own thinking."

Robert H. Schuller
