Thanks for posting this quote. It reminds me of the advice my daddy always gave us when we were kids - "whatever you do, be the best at it. If you scrub toilets for a living, they'd better be the shiniest toilets in town!" Wonder if he knew he was paraphrasing Lincoln lol. Kathy

'Abe' was such a wise man!

Speaking of Presidents; come this Thursday President Obama will be visiting my City. (Canada's Capital -Ottawa-) Actually it his 'first foreign visit' as President.

With no disrepect for our Leaders; I am hoping as neighbours, Stephen and Barack will learn to play nicely together and become steadfast friends.

SMILES....-Brenda-

Now that I've had my eye-openerS for the day (several cups of tea),
I apologize for my grammar and typing in my previous comment.

It shud have read "it IS his first foreign visit" and "With no disreSpect".
(LOL, regardless that I am not a Blogger you wud think I would have learned to proof-read by now. Sorry about that Angelo.....I think this is okay.)

LOVE YOU! LOVE your blog! I have to tell you Angelo, you are one of my biggest inspirations. You have this amazing quiet resolve, incredible talent and watching you interact with homeowner's reveals your giant heart and compassion.

I cannot wait for your new furniture line and I am thrilled that all this is happening for you. Your parents must be beaming!!!
