ST Patrick’s Day

Dear Fellow Journalers,

When I was a teenager, I took Irish Step Dancing lessons and my favorite musical group was The Clancy Brothers. Here is one of my favorites. Enjoy!


Ask a stupid question

Dear Fellow Journalers,

Today is Ask a Stupid Question Day. It’s your opportunity to speak up, and to ask all those questions you were afraid to ask. All those questions that you thought were too stupid or dumb to ask, have been piling up all year long. Today is the day to unload them. C’mon give it a try. Nobody will laugh……we hope.

This may be a stupid question, but I will ask it anyway…… Teachers say there is no such thing as a stupid question. Or, that no question is too stupid to ask. If this is true, then why do your classmates laugh when you ask a question?  Yes, kids can be cruel. But, if you have a question, there’s no better place to ask, than in the classroom.

Today’s Quote: “Stupid is as stupid does”. Forrest Gump

 Movie of the  Day: “Dumb and Dumber”

Other “Stupid” stuff:

  • Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer.
  • This might sound stupid, but……
  • Do you think I’m stupid enough to fall for that (duh!)
  • Seen on a T-shirt “I’m with Stupid”. Well, if that’s true, how smart are you?

Origin of Ask a Stupid Question Day:

The roots of this special day goes back to the 1980’s. At the time, there was a movement by teachers to try to get kids to ask more questions in the classroom. Kids sometimes hold back, fearing their question is stupid, and asking it will result in ridicule. Teachers created this day on September 28, If it fell on a weekend, they would celebrate it on the last day of the month. So today, September 30, IS YOUR DAY TO ASK STUPID QUESTIONS!!


Happy Thanksgiving

Dear Fellow Journalers,

No matter how you celebrate it, have a great Thanksgiving!

Just a note

Dear fellow Journalers,

I recently received a comment from a reader who said they couldn’t “find” me on Google. I took my web site down a few months ago to concentrate on my writing. You can find my cards on this link.

UYCJ has been up and running since Feb. 5th! That’s 64 posts published! So  I have a question. How am I doing?

Don’t be shy. Is there any content you would like to see more of?  Anything you would like me to “forget”. Many of you have commented on the pictures I have included with Random Thoughts, some of you like Perspectives, still others like the journal covers. The new year will include more Perspectives from “G”, Marybeth, and Paul as well as a new author.  Also featured will be a monthly Pursuit of Happiness Post to inspire us all.

Remember, we are all traveling this journey, some different roads , but we’re all doing our best to help each other.
