Shout Out

"Cathy and I stayed with our two grandchildren, overnight at the Hilton Garden Inn Bothell in Canyon Park. Our stay was so nice I have to give them a "SHOUT OUT". Clean, comfortable, good food, drink and a nice pool for the four of us. But, the clincher for us...was the staff. Julie and Lindsey, at the front desk...the wait staff...the entire experience was outstanding." Submitted by Paul Desilet, Paul Richards Clothing for Men & Women

* Facts are stubborn things, but statistics are more pliable.
* Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.
* A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.
* Education: that which reveals to the wise, and conceals from the stupid, the vast limits of their knowledge.
* Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.
* Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint.
* The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
