[01/06/20]   Wishing you and your's a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year........from your local State Farm Insurance Agent,
Ron Greene

2020 - A new year, a new decade.
Make the most of your horizons ahead by being open to possibilities. Say yes to opportunity more than no. Nurture wanderlust, embracing travel and its transformative magic.

"Begin anywhere"
John Cage

"An investment in travel is an investment in yourself"
Matthew Karsten

"Traveling. It leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller."
Ibn Battuta

"If I'm advocate of anything, it's to move. As far as I can, as much as I can. Across the ocean or simply across the river. The extent to which you can walk in someone else's shoes or at least eat their food, it's a plus for everybody. Open you mind, get up off the couch....MOVE!"
A.. Bourdain

"Since you have to do the things you have to do, be wise to do some of the things you want to do."
M. Forbes

Happy New Year & keep it moving!

[12/06/19]   It's Christmas time in the city.....
from your local State Farm Insurance Agent, Ron Greene

"It's not what's under the tree that matters, but who is around it."

A little smile, a word of cheer, a bit of love from someone near. A little gift from one held dear and best wishes for the coming year. These are the things that make a Merry Christmas.

Feliz Navidad (Spanish)
Joyeux Noel (French)
Buon Natale (Italian)
Eid Milad Saeid (Arabic)
Vrolijk Kerstfeest (Dutch)
Wesolych Swiat (Polish)
Kala Christougena (Caribbean)

"Tis the Season every day. So whatever the language and at any time of the year, we should always treat each other with respect and love.

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a healthy, prosperous, Happy New Year, from your friends at State Farm Insurance........
Ron Greene, Agent

[11/18/19]   Every day is a day to give thanks.....
Wishing you and yours a Blessed, safe, Happy Thanksgiving
from your local State Farm Insurance Agent, Ron Greene & Bren Galloway, Office Manager/LSA5

"Gratitude can transform common days into Thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy and change ordinary opportunities into blessings."

Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more.

[10/18/19]   Fall is in the air and "Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.".............from your local
State Farm Insurance Agent, Ron Greene

"Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree. Notice that autumn is more the season of the soul than of nature.”

I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers!

It's Fall Y'all!

Cool evenings
Crisp fresh air
Hot cocoa
Homemade soup
Football
Hay Rides
Pumpkins
Colorful trees and wind-blown leaves
Dig out the sweaters, or as we Southerners say, "Sweata Weatha"
Homemade pies
Barbecue's
Fall festivals
Bike rides
Kite flying
Farmer's Markets

So, pull on a sweata and get out and enjoy the cool, fresh air!

Oh, how I love Fall!

[09/27/19]   Hello Fall,
from your local State Farm Insurance Agent, Ron Greene

The Great Outdoors - cool, crisp weather and hot apple cider!

Stuff you can do:
Apple picking
Leaf peeping
Getting lost in a corn maze
Taking a hot air balloon ride
Playing a game of two-hand touch football
Going for a hike or hayride
Collecting colorful fall leaves

Autumn is such a spectacular month for endless amounts of cozy, fall activities you can do with your family for little or no money.

Here are just a few ideas to get you in the mood for fall:

Tell ghost stories.....hit the lights, burn some candles, and gather in the living room to swap spooky stories.

Plant bulbs for the Spring of the year.

Go camping - take advantage of the cooler weather and plan an epic trip with the family.

Take a fall foliage drive - pack the family into the car and head off on a scenic drive for a fun afternoon of leaf peeping, apple picking and fall festivals.

Bake some delicious apple cider donuts (get the recipe from Country Living)

Visit a National Park. The parks with the most impressive fall foliage include Denali in Alaska, Glacier in Montana and Acadia in Maine.

With Halloween right around the corner, plan a night out at a haunted house or host a Halloween party.

Take the kids out to an open field in the park and fly kites.

Whatever strikes your fancy, get out and enjoy the cool weather and the array of colorful Fall foliage.

[09/13/19]   Stuff you didn't know about your own body, from your local State Farm Insurance Agent, Ron Greene

A blink is a micro-nap

Big eyes cause nearsightedness

Hair can taste (hair helps the environment and dirty hair can be good for the environment....it absorbs the air pollutants)

Humans glow.....you just can't see it - however, research has found that the human body does in fact emit visible light, but since its about 1000 times less intense than the levels our eyes are able to spot, it's not visible

Stomach acid can dissolve razor blades

Sneezes can travel up to 20 feet

It's impossible to tickle yourself

Ear wax is good for you (you don't want to eat it but ear wax protects your ears from infections.) Ear wax is as much as 50 percent fat, coating the ear and catching dust and debris. Ear wax keeps your ears healthy.

Hair knows when you are sleep. Researchers have found that our cell-rich hair follicles contain RNA from "clock genes" that express each person's sleep-wake cycle. If you get up late or go to bed early, your hair will show it.

You have a one-of-a-kind tongue print. Just as your fingerprint is uniquely yours, so too is your tongue print, according to a study by the Thi Moogambigai Dental College.

Humans are the only animals that weep

Your rear is your largest muscle (while there is some debate about which of your muscles is the strongest, your gluteus maximum happens to be your largest.)

And finally, half your hand strength is in your pinkie.

What do you call a man with no nose?
Who nose!

[08/20/19]   In Pursuit of Happiness.......
from your local State Farm Insurance Agent, Ron Greene

As Abraham Lincoln said: "Folks are usually about as happy as they make up their minds to be." And generally speaking, whether you are happy at work, home or anywhere for that matter, is pretty much up to you as well.

Below are some of the things (or people) that make me happy :)

My spouse
Family
Hearing "I love you"
Morning coffee
Fall/Autumn
Sleeping in
Ice Cream
Fine Wine
Hearing my kids laugh
Grandkids
Puppy kisses
Holiday's w/family and friends
Clean, crisp sheets fresh out of the dryer
Lazy Sunday's
Birds chirping in the morning
A good home-cooked meal
Sitting by the fire pit on a cool evening
Dining out at a ritzy restaurant
Dates with my wife
Travelling abroad
Flying 1st Class
Spending time with friends
Helping others less fortunate
The sound of childrens laughter
Golf
Golf
Golf
Did I list GOLF?????

If you have the power to make someone happy, do it
because the world needs more of that.

[08/09/19]   What wisdom can you find that is greater than kindness?
from your local State Farm Agent,
Ron Greene

Here are some suggestions we can do to extend kindness to each other:

Send a handwritten thank you note

Lead with and express gratitude

Deal with issues early, often and openly

Commit to seeing the whole person vs. the one or two things they do well

Don’t announce every error

Be a positive gossiper

Set boundaries

Give kind eye contact

Practice, practice, practice

Be kind to yourself

Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people.

[07/23/19]   Try a little kindness,
from your local State Farm Insurance Agent, Ron Greene

You never know what someone is going through. Be patient,
be courteous and cordial. A simple "hello" can brighten someone's day.

Smile
Hold the door open
Give an honest compliment
Thank someone who you appreciate
Be a good listener
Offer your help to someone
Ask the person who's serving you how their day is going
Treat someone to coffee or tea
Drive defensively, but also courteously
Pay if forward every now and again

So the next time you think about cutting someone off or blowing the car horn like you're totally insane..........STOP!
Calm down. Breathe. Inhale. Exhale.

Carry out a random act of kindness with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.
There is so much individual and collective suffering in the world, but we can all do our part to brighten-up someone's day.
Try it. You might like it!

[07/09/19]   July 11 is National Cheer Up the Lonely Day, from your local State Farm Insurance Agent, Ron Greene

Maybe you know someone who is lonely or is having a hard time. National Cheer Up the Lonely Day, which is observed every year on July 11, was created to draw attention to the ways you can brighten someone's day.

If someone you know is lonely, something as simple as a phone call to say hello, a text message or a greeting card, perhaps even stopping by with coffee and doughnuts or taking them out to lunch can lift them up higher than you can imagine.

Saying hello to someone you run into on the street, or sharing a smile can brighten their day. Dropping by on an elderly neighbor's home, or visiting residents in an assisted living facility are other ways to show you care.

Try these 8 random acts of kindness to brighten up someone's day:

Buy coffee for the person in line behind you
Start a conversation with a stranger
Make a meal for a friend who's stressed
Donate your time to a local charity
Buy a hot meal for a homeless person
Compliment a stranger
Ask someone about their day and actively listen
Call up an old friend and reconnect

Put a little love in your heart and a little heart in your love
Together we can make it......

[06/27/19]   Bon Appetite from your local State Farm Insurance Agent, Ron Greene

Weird Foods - I ain't gonna try 'em....get back to me, if you do.

Chicken's Feet - East Asia, Caribbean, South America & South Africa.
Considering how many places it's eaten, perhaps it's unfair to deem this weird. Still, it's made mostly of skin making it a little gelatinous in texture. They are pretty tasty when flavoured properly, (I'm told) but the bones get on your nerves after a while.

Haggis - Scotland
A sheep's heart, liver and lungs minced and mixed with onions, oatmeal, suet and seasoned with salt and spices cooked inside the animal's stomach. If that doesn't sound appealing, I just don't know what will.

Tripe - All Over the World

The stomach lining of various animals with a sponge-like honeycomb texture looks like some weird kind of sea plant life and has a peculiar and not entirely appetizing rubbery texture, served with the various sauces to add flavour or simply with an accompaniment like onions.

Khash - Middle East, East Europe and Turkey
A pretty gruesome little dish made up of stewed cows feet and head. It was once a winter comfort food but is now considered a delicacy. I'm sure it's fine, so long as you don't mind that grinning skull staring at your through its cold dead eyes.

Tuna Eyeballs - Japan
Enough said!

Black Pudding (Blood Sausage) Africa, Americas, Asia Europe

Pretty widely available, really. Still there are a large number of people who find the idea revolting. And silly people they are, as the finished product is tasty. Congealed blood cooked up with various natural flavourings, thickening agents like suet and breadcrumbs and stuffed into a sausage skin - lush!

Shiokara - Japan

Now this really does sound bad. A dish made of pieces of meat taken from a selection of sea creatures, served in a brown, viscous paste of their own salted and fermented viscera. Oh, I forgot to mention, it's all served raw.
You may enjoy it but you're going to need a bucket afterwards.

Fried Spider - Cambodia

Fried spider is a regional delicacy popular in the Cambodian town of Skuon, prepared by marinating it is MSG, sugar and salt and then frying it in garlic. Apparently it has more meat on it than a grasshopper, but it also has brown sludge in the abdomen, which consists of mainly innards, eggs and excrement. Geez!

All you food connoisseurs with adventurous palettes and an abundance of nerves, should try some of these delicacies.
As for me, I'll have a turkey sandwich on rye, dab of mustard, lettuce and pickle, hold the mayo.

[06/17/19]   Stuff to know from your local State Farm Insurance
Agent, Ron Greene

Shakespeare's tombstone in Statford's Holy Trinity Church bears this inscription, said to have been written by him: "Good friend, for Jesus' sake forbear to dig the dust enclosed here. Blest be the man that spares these stones, and curst be he that moves my bones".

The first black surgeon to do open heart surgery was Dr. Daniel Hale Williams. In 1893, he saved a man who was knifed by opening his chest and sewing together the wound, which was only a fraction of an inch from his heart. He was one of the first to do this. He accomplished this without any modern medical devices, such as x-rays.

Thomas Crapper developed the flush toilet. In 1884, he simulated the materials a toilet would normally handle to create, "a super-flush," which had completely cleared away: 10 apples, 1 flat sponge, 3 air vessels, Plumbers Smudge coated over the pan, 4 pieces of paper adhering closely to the soiled surface."
A fantastic feat of flushing!

Vincent Van Gogh only sold one painting his whole life and that was to his brother.

A Japanese explorer named Maomi Uemura was the first man to reach the North Pole alone after his eight-week journey.

Mark Twain, one of America's best-loved authors, dropped out of school when he was 12 years old after his father died.

On April 2, 1872, Victoria Woodhull became the first woman candidate for the US presidency.

Babe Ruth kept a cabbage leaf under his cap to keep cool.

Abraham Lincoln once invented a device for lifting riverboats over shallow water.

Did you know that the Egyptians thought the world was in the shape of a rectangle and that the heavens were held up by four giant pillars? They also warned sailors not to go too far away or they just might row off the giant rectangle called Earth. When the Queen of England heard this she sent 4 ships south, north, east and west to search for these "pillars."
When they didn't find any (because the world is in the shape of a sphere) they questioned the Egyptians and they told her the pillars must have been farther than they predicted.
Now that was a royal lie!

There were about 300 bones in your body when you were born, but by the time you reach adulthood you only have 206.

A dentist invented the electric chair. (That explains the pain)

The largest baby to be born so far weighted in at 15 pounds, 5 ounces.

(Excluding those who done even have a brain)

The average person has at least seven dreams a night.

The average American over 50 will have spent five years waiting in lines.

Your blood takes a very long trip through your body. If you could stretch out all of a human's blood vessels, they would be about 60,000 miles long. That's enough to go around the world twice.

Your thigh bone is stronger than concrete.

Your fingernails grow four times as fast as your toenails.

You blink your eyes over 10,000,000 a year.

The average growth of hair is half an inch per month.
If your hair remains uncut, it can grow up to five feet long.

Your tongue, eye and jaw muscles are among the strongest muscles in your body.

Do you know how Moses likes his tea?
He Brews

[05/30/19]   Bugging Out -
from your local State Farm Insurance Agent, Ron Greene

Most people would consider the largest insect to be the bulkiest. In this case, the Acteon Beetle (Megasoma Acteon) from South America (the males of which can be 9cms long by 5cms wide by 4cms thick.)

A one-day old baby cockroach, about the size of a spec of dust, can run almost as fast as its parents.

More human deaths have been attributed to fleas than all the wars ever fought. As carriers of the bubonic plague, fleas were responsible for killing one-third of the population of Europe in the 14th century.

Bees must collect the nectar from two thousand flowers to make one tablespoonful of honey.

A dragonfly has a lifespan of 24 hours.

Ants can't chew their food. They move their jaws sideways, like scissors, to obtain the juices from the food.
(We all have at least one relative who chews like this)

There are more beetles than any other kind of creature in the world.

Crickets hear through their knees.

Most spiders belong to the orb weaver family, Family Aranidae,
pronounced "A Rainy Day."

It is a misdemeanor to kill or threaten a butterfly - so says City Ordinance No. 352 in Pacific Grove, California.

Tapeworms range in size from about 0.04 inch to more than 50 feet in length.

What goes hum-choo, hum-choo?
A bee with a cold

What was the last thing to go through the bugs mind when he hit the windshield?
His rear end

What did one flea say to the other flea?
Should we walk home or take the dog

Ok, bug off. That's it for today.
