Time To Throw "IT" Out There!

"Joy is a boomerang!"

For me, those are words to live by.

Come to think of it, you could replace "joy" with any other attribute!....

It's a "KARMA" thing...and we all know what this "Law" of the universe entales...right?...Of course. Don't deny it we've all been on both sides of the law! :-)

On this Thursday morning I was delighted to run accross this "Simple Truths" video extoling the attitude sharing technique...

For me, it is an inspriing piece that tells it all in a few dynamic tips or "truths", that when placed into action WILL change your world....really!!

With mountains of "editing" and "writing" to do with production "deadlines" looming and comittments promised that should never have been committed :-) I face this day with this little video of hope and laws of faith and joy.

Take a look and have a great day...

Time to toss the boomerang....

See ya tomorrow on the next edition of Michigan Magazine TV....we've got a whole "case" of boomerangs we'll be tossing your way!


We bring you the joy of another Michigan celebratiion in Clare!


Then we visit with Craig Pennington of St. John Illustrator of the Grandma Janet Mary children's book series...Now here is an amazing story of a dynamic duo whose "attitude" of joy and graditude will fill your heart with inspiration.....

See ya then!

Meanwhile enjoy the above video to start your day!

Oh, Mark my heart, I singeth the

Michigan, My Michigan

Thy lake bound shores, I long to see

Michigan, My Michigan

From Saginaw's tall whispering pines

From lake superiors farthest mines

There in the light of memory shines

Michigan, My Michigan

Thou gave thy sons without a sigh

Michigan, My Michigan

And sent thy bravest forth to die

Michigan, My Michigan

Beneath a hostile southern sky

They bore thy banner proud and high

Ready to fight and never to fly

Michigan, My Michigan

From Yorktown onto Richmonds wall

Michigan, My Michigan

They bravely fight as bravely fought

Michigan, My Michigan

There strong arms crumble in the dust

And there bright swords all have gathered rust

There memory is our sacred trust

Michigan, My Michigan

And when the happy time shall come

Michigan, My Michigan

That brings thy war-worn heroes home

Michigan, My Michigan

What welcome from there own proud shore

What honors at there feet will pour

What tears for those who'll come no more

Michigan, My Michigan

A greatful country claims them now

Michigan, My Michigan

A deathless laurel binds each brow

Michigan, My Michigan

And history the tale will tell

of how they fought and how they fell

For that dear land we loved so well

Michigan, My Michigan

Are You "IN" or "OUT"?

Good morning Michiganders!

I'm not gunna even ask you "What Day is it"......

We all know you can look at it at least 3 different ways.....

1) "It's Wednesday and it's all down hill from here"..with missed deadlines and "excuses" to make and promises to work on the weekend ...or

2) "Yes!..It's Wednesday and we're sliding into the weekend...Great job everyone...we're gunna make it!"and finally...

3) "It's "hump" day...and in two days I'm outahere...Que sara sara!!!

Have a great Wednesday everyone....Start planning for the weekend....break the something "out of the box"...Or you may just find yourself "in the box" forever...Just do it.....ENOUCH CLICHE'..ENJOY.

Glory be......The Day Is Finally Here!.....It' your Lucky day!


May you always have...

Walls for the winds

A roof for the rain

Tea beside the fire

Laughter to cheer you

Those you love near you

And all your heart might desire.


May the road rise to meet you,

may the wind be ever at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

and the rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
