In my retirement I have found that day to day I was focusing only on the negative things I see in the news. I was getting depressed and sour. I felt so bad that I even started a blog: http://Annoyedwiththings.blogspot.com/ to help ease my frustrations (hence the Annoyedwiththings.firstname.lastname@example.org email at the top of this page). It didn't work.
That was when the magic hit me. Why not open my thoughts to the things that put a smile on my face every day. So as counter-balance to my other blog, I offer my positive observations and invite you to share what puts a smile on your face.
