Pancake, Chocolate — Nibble Cooking

To my “cyber-friends/pals” around the world….

Thanks for the follow/link/like/reblog and/or kind thought(s)

Hi everyone

I do really appreciate your liking, linking to and/or following this blog (and “writing in”), so “thanks to YOU all for the thanx” (in thought)

if you want to follow me, go to www.craigsblogs.wordpress.com

and/or http://www.craigsbooks.wordpress.com (to find one or two that may perhaps be of interest)

Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera* in the “real world”, rather than in cyberspace!)
* By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

(get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

* or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

“total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time) #

Who says men can’t multi-task!

“The impossible we do immediately. Miracles take a little longer.”

# (You may think I’m joking, but just ask my friends!)

Men…Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em!

“You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm.”

Now back to the message I was posting before I got distracted

enjoy anyway

“totally impulsive + “early bird”* c

Hi

CAN’T KEEP UP…BUT THANKS FOR THE “THANX”

I’ve had many many hundreds of thousands (even “zillions”) of comments on my various other WordPress blogs at https://craigsblogs.wordpress.com/2011/09/09/craigs-list-of-blogs-updated-sept-2011/
in recent years …true!). A few of my blogs went “balistically viral” a few years back and I got swamped with comments on my various blogs… so had to close them all off.

Obsessive or WHAT! Am really pleased you are enjoying my writings, as the reason I write is to share.

Though I’m rather “driven”, I still get really, really fatigued (there’s a few books there). So sorry can’t reply individually to all you good people scattered around the planet. As mentioned (stop repeating yourself, c – bad writing…otherwise the first signs of approaching senility!), I was unable to keep up with the comments and was spending entire days just on replies on my various blog pages, so had to close them off on all of my blogs, except for one or two of particular interest to me.

Sorry and hope you can understand.

“Don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.”

~ Franz Kafka

I do really appreciate your liking, linking to and/or following this blog (and “writing in”), so “thanks for the thanx”

“As we live and move and have our being, so from this vision, we create heaven in our own lives… and perhaps even heaven on earth.”
– craig (as inspired by Acts 17:28 and the words of Felicia Searcy)

“Aim at the earth and you may not get off the ground.a
“Aim at the stars and you may reach the moon.”
“Aim at heaven and you’ll have earth thrown in…
and you may even hit the stars.”
– craig (as inspired by the famous quote by CS Lewis – 24th May 2012)

“When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
– Leonardo da Vinci

When (or if ever) you arrive in heaven, let faith, hope and love be the wings that carried you there.”

– as adapted from the inspiring words of Jonathan Edwards, former minister in New England, Massachusetts

“The Greatest Race: Living by (with) faith, hope and love is the highest podium any person can reach, God’s podium that anyone stand on.”
– c

“Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race with persistence and endurance, after giving it all. Then one day standing on the summit of life, breathing in the pure sweet oxygen of achievement, totally satisfied in running the greatest race, the race of life one that ANYONE can run and win.”

“If a man is called to be a street-sweeper,
he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,
or Beethoven composed music, or
Shakespeare wrote poetry.
He should sweep streets so well
that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say,
here lived a great street sweeper
who did his job well.”
– Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.

PPS
Instead of trying to reply to each one of you, I’ll just keep on writing (which I’m often told is what is “safest” for me!)

“If the doctor told me I had six minutes to live, I’d type a little faster.”

“I wish you well on a rainy day
I wish you rainbows to brighten your day
To feel your quiet moments with a special kind of warmth
to remind you that happiness can happen
when you least expect it.

I wish you rainbows to make you laugh and smile
to show you the simple beauty of life
and to give you the magic of dreams come true.

I wish you rainbows
I wish you well.”

– Larry S. Chengges

”Since I can never see your face,
And never shake you by the hand,
I send my soul through time and space
To greet you. You will understand.”

“Commit to the commitment.”

Self Help (Personal Growth) Books

“Commit to the commitment.”
-Dennis Connor American yachtsman and four-time America’s Cup winner

Dennis Conner’s philosophy for success is simple – find one thing you’re good at, devote yourself to it and become great. It may sound easy, but as the 4-time America’s Cup-winning skipper concedes, most people spread themselves thin among a variety of commitments. #
