Brian Andre Kirton makes me feel so guilty! (‘nuther pink gin darlin’ !)

Can the House of Angostura be a sin?

I must be getting older. Here I sit on a Sunday night – supremely content with my life, my wife and my children. Shona fixed me up with a rather zesty pink gin that I suspect is a triple. Not a double, but a triple. (What a terrible thing to do to your man. I must punish you most severely later this evening, my love. 🙂 )

Sip… don’t drink or I’ll be sorry.

Those Trinis… it’s all their fault.

Do I overindulge?

I’m cruising around the web on a Sunday night and about #54 on the list I visit Business is a Lifestyle by our old friend Brian Andre Kirton.

And he’s all incensed about how some folks drink too much… smoke too much herb and generally do what they want because their weakness is near and available. He says The abyss of failure by overindulgence.

I won’t say that Brian is wrong. ‘e’s probably right.

It’s a weakness. A sin. It probably kept me from success or more success.

But… Darlin’… bring me another pink gin.

Ta babe!

Lord knows you’re heading for the big four zero – 40 – but you look gorgeous tonight.

Kids are asleep, right?

Congratulations to John and Tricialouise.

What a romance… and without the internet, it never would have happened.

Spark of the Day! Love and Miracles for Blind Man

“I didn’t think anyone would want to marry me, but she said she did.”

Shander Herian had been blind since an accident at the age of 10, but that didn’t matter to his wife to be. It was an arranged marriage for the Brit of Indian heritage and the Gurjeet said “yes”.

The couple worked hard. Together they assembled computers and sold them. She drove him to the customers and he used a braille keyboard to set up the software. Two daughters and ten years later they were millionaires.

Then he could see again.

An uplifting story of love and miracles that’s just what I needed on Monday morning.

You read a story like this, you feel good and you realize that compared to some people you have no problems at all!
