HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL


A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in
front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very
large and empty jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then
asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the
jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas
between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar
was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar.
Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if
the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous ‘yes.’

The professor then produced a bottle of beer from under the table and
poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty
space between the sand.The students laughed.

‘Now,’ said the professor as the laughter subsided, ‘I want you to
recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the
important things - family, children, your health, your friends and
your favourite passions – and if everything else was lost and only
they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the
other things that matter like your job, your house and your car. The
sand is everything else - the small stuff.

‘If you put the sand into the jar first,’ he continued, ‘there is no
room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life.

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will
never have room for the things that are important to you.

Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Take
care of the golf balls first - the things that really matter. Set your
priorities. The rest is just sand.

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the beer
represented. The professor smiled and said, ‘I’m glad you asked.’ The
beer just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem,
there’s always room for beer.

Happy New Year

Just shows how out of touch with real life academics can be: if you're full of golf balls, gravel, sand and beer, just how do you fit the rakiya in? Wink

Честита Нова Година на всички!....even if it is a tad early Very Happy

Meanwhile, back in the UK (aka Chav-land Rolling Eyes) the dregs are still lying in the gutter waiting to waste more of the NHS' resources.... Evil or Very Mad

I read into that your New Year Resolution not to be a moaning cynical git during 2018 didn't last more than a few hours and not days; FAIL. Laughing

In other news, Facebook reports that today is Walkage's 50th Birthday. Shocked Upon congratulating the git and suggesting that 50 is his waist size in inches and not his age - he comes back with it is an FB mistake that he needs to sort it out. Laughing My advice is this, if you lie during a subscription to anything then, remember the details as it will surely come back at some stage to bite you on the arse. Laughing

Happy New Year to all of you, young and old, of all genders and may your relevant God(s) be with you (or not) as your respective faith (or absence thereof) allows Wink

Hopefully 2018 will bring good health and some prosperity, together with a smidgeon of happiness to all, but even if your personal 'in tray' remains empty, please try to pay forwards with good heart in order to balance someone else's Karma Smile

Oh and I hope you've all had a nice Orthodox Xmas too!

Normal publication of the geopolitical history blurb will resume shortly for those afflicted members of the 'Insomniacs Anonymous' club.
