Do You Believe That You Can Learn Something That Is Absolutely New To You ...

In 5 Minutes Or Less? I have this Lifelong thirst for new knowlege through adventure and experience... This feature seems to add a sort of "Zing or Zest " to my Daily Doings, and I have been mainly described as a very energetic and vibrant person, Though I don't consider myself as "Perky " at all... The fact that my Clients are getting on in their years, as my business grows older too, might have a bit to do with how I view Life in general. Some of my Clients have reached a point where they feel that they no longer have the passion to learn anything new about ANYTHING or anyone one else on the Planet. The fact that someone can become so "self cloistered " sends chills down my spine, as this is sort of a "living dead " existance to me. I view Life's choices, chances and changes, as a really luscious and full breasted beauty of a "Ship oF Knowlege ", unleashed to the Seas and Endless Rivers of Time, Space and Omniverses Beyond Omniverses... You know, The GOOD STUFF! :) My own years ( All 5000 of them, it seems) become like these delicious strands of taffy-- Some very sweet, and some quite sour, but all of them tasty, just the same... Now, that will be quite enough about me and my Life. What about You and Your Life's adventure? It's not quite often enough here at Mylot that I see some of you lay down your words about Life as you are Living it, but when I do, The Resource Officer in me gets summoned and stoked, as my Empathic channels get going, and then something really cool often occurs... Especially, if that person's discussion is about a negative relevance to their own Life, Loves and Adventures as they are, at the time. Can you learn something that is absolutely new to you, in 5 minutes? Do you have the Will or Passion (Patience), to do so? Do you think that learning something new in 5 minutes could have a great effect on your Life right now, as it is? Finally and most importantly, Are You willing to share your new knowlege with your MyLot family through your discussion responses below? I trust that you will honestly learn a new thing from the site below, so here goes, and May Big Fun and Other Goodies come flowing to You and Yours forever! :) http://www.5min.com/ I can't wait to see what you find and share with me, I'm tingling with anticipation and the need for coffee, so have at it! :)

Well get to it and enjoy yourself, my Friend! :) There's a lot of surprising stuff on that site... For example, I didn't know that you could fix a dent in your car door with dry ice! That is very useful knowlege these days! :)

I went in and first off downloaded the new flash player. I can remember when those words would have driven me into panic. Then I went to P. Allen Smith. I learned that all these ferns I try so delicately to nurture inside are perennials. I hope to have better luck next time. I also learned why they are called painted ferns. There are some other things to look at. Actually the five minute learning thing suits my personality.

Good for you, GG! :) I'm not a gardener per se, but that information will certainly help me save a few Plant lives from my Client's attempts at it... That Five Minute thing really works out well for me too! :)

Thanks and thanks again. When I get these new sites to check I note them on my list and do it later. I don't have my own PC and therefore I have limited access to the net. But thank you anyway and I will check this when I can.

Time to share my newly acquired knowledge. [b]Removing a dent from a vehicle: First heat the dented area with a hair dryer causing the metal to expand. Then immediately spray the same area with compressed CO2, holding the can upside down. The cold CO2 causes the area to rapidly contract thus popping the dent out and returning the area to it's original condition. Although I doubt this would work for small narrow panels surrounding a headlight or tailight (but couldn't hurt to try!), it is certainly viable for any larger panel on a vehicle. A very handy little trick![/b] My dear peaceful, you may not be "perky" but you certainly turn a colorful phrase or two! I honestly can't imagine living a single day without learning or wanting to learn something new. Especially now that I have health issues that keep me from being the "energetic and vibrant" person I used to be, it has only served the desire to focus on educating my mind. I now have ample opportunity to do so. ^5 for the GOOD STUFF! Thanks for the site and I'm going back to watch a few more of the videos.

Well my friend I don't know about car culture so much, I just have a husband who's a lousy driver! He backed into the driveway a few weeks ago and hit the garage

Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York... This is a demolition derby zone 24-7, and the drivers are intensly rude, too! A few more of those auto tips under your belt, and you could make a fortune out here, Crafty! :) Some driving funnies for you! :) http://www.apsense.com/subject/31822.html

I was having a little bit of difficulty connecting the five minutes until we got to the end. I just tell people that my constant job changes are evidence of my undiagnosed ADD. Of course, until after I post, that link will not work. I have nothing to share in this response, but you know what, I will go look, then I will come back if I have something to share, OKAY? I am not scared to learn, and frankly I am more alive at 55 than I was at twenty.
