  1. I may have mentioned this before. My sister-in-law’s name is M. Hobbes. Her ex-husband’s name was Calvin Hobbes. I always thought that funny. (They divorced over 30 years ago. She has persistently remained single ever since. πŸ˜‰ )

  2. Scrambled eggs on today’s menu, Ramana? Or would you prefer an Omelette? I can’t thank you enough for a much needed and unsolicited laugh.

    My middle name is Persistence. And sometimes I think the other side of the coin is not knowing when enough is enough. When to stop. I appear incapable of giving up. Even if I know I should there is always that little voice egging (!) me on to try once more, just once more, just once more … And again. Of course, tragedy’s potential when the proverbial vessel has gone to fetch water one too many times and CRACKS. That’s usually the moment when I revert to my five year old self – looking in wide eyed wonderment at the ways of the world and not understanding any of it.

    1. You are not alone. All the casinos and gambling dens/ betting parlours in the world would go broke if people knew when to cut their losses and move on to a new bet. I have seen too many such failures in my business life too. It takes a particular frame of mind to be able to cut one’s losses and walk away.

  3. Just spent about a half-hour trying to reset my x&#*! cheap watch on the correct time. Finally got it within a half-minute. Believe I will have to rest up for a while to overcome my resistance to the persistence an exact adjustment will require.

    Nothing in the world
    can take the place of persistence.
    Talent will not;
    nothing is more common than
    unsuccessful men with talent
    Genius will not;
    unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
    Education will not;
    the world is full of educated derelicts.
    Persistence and determination
    alone are omnipotent.
    The slogan β€œPRESS ON” has solved
    and always will solve
    the problems of the human race.

    ~ Calvin Coolidge

  5. playing with persistence here at the moment as I try to right my world, my belongings and various other things – hopefully each compartment will look even better when I’m done. Quite a lot of stuff going to recyclers, some I hope to sell off and the rest corralled in a better way…
