Greetings, readers!
I hope you've had a wonderful week--writing and otherwise.

But, I'm keeping "warm" thoughts.
 
Until there's a temperature boost, I'll just have to uplift myself with positive words.
In this spirit, I share some of my favorite motivational quotes.
Enjoy! And have a great week ahead.

  4. Well, the quote about the pigs stands out - I gave up teaching pigs to sing years ago. It really is a waste of time. :) Seriously though, I do like Iacocca's quote. Very inspiring. Thanks for the motivation and inspiration. Hope things are warming up for you!

    1. Thanks a bunch, Sue. The bean salad? That little old thing. :-) I must say though, that it's one of my most popular salads. Folks love it when I bring it to parties or backyard BBQ's. I'll send the recipe if you would like. Just let me know. :-)
