    Freebies Are Great!

    I love freebies, giving them as well as receiving! Too often people think they have to spend money or "buy" something nice for a friend or loved one.  They feel as though they can't help the poor or downtrodden, the lonely  or heartbroken unless they...

    I Believe This To Be True

    I have always loved the saying 'the best things in life are free', because I believe it is true. You don't need money or possessions to enjoy life and be happy. You need a positive attitude and a spirit open to enjoying every moment that you can.

    Free and Plentiful

    Someone's love. Someone's admiration. The fresh air. The blue sky. A smile. The sunshine. The wind. The rain. Friendship. Good conversation. Sex. A kiss. A hug. A lick from a puppy. Satisfaction from a job well done.

    I think most of the best things are all FOC

    including HUGS! I withheld a hug to my mentor on his last day at work due to my stupid blind traditional belief that all hugs are improper. He did hug me a few times while we worked closely for 2 years before he has migrated to somewhere out of my reach. I swear I thought of...
