Don’t Take Life for Granted

It Can Be Taken Away in an Instant
A good friend sent me this email with a good message.

In the video below (captured by a traffic camera), watch the man on the left walking, crossing the road where there is no car. It seems so definite that the coast on the left is clear, and safe to cross. Any person would see it is safe... Then watch what happens!



Take nothing for granted, not even for a split second!
Be grateful for every living minute!

'Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets; so love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don't, and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it.
If it changes your life, let it.

FootNote: Believe it or not the pedestrian in the intersection lived! He was saved by the imprint that the PT Cruiser left in the driver's side of the Subaru. When the Subaru went over him, it came down on him right where the dent in the car was made, and did not crush him! Another 'angel on your shoulder' event!

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Life at best, is brief.
Enjoy your days.
Serve God with Gladness.

Joke of the Day

Here's a little fact for automotive buffs or just to dazzle your friends.

The four Goldberg brothers, Lowell, Norman, Hiram, and Max, invented and developed the first automobile air-conditioner.

On July 17, 1946, the temperature in Detroit was 97 degrees. The four brothers walked into old man Henry Ford's office and sweet-talked his secretary into telling him that four gentlemen were there with the most exciting innovation in the auto industry since the electric starter. Henry was curious and invited them into his office.

They refused and instead asked that he come out to the parking lot to their car. They persuaded him to get into the car, which was about 130 degrees, turned on the air conditioner, and cooled the car off immediately.
The old man got very excited and invited them back to the office, where he offered them $3 million for the patent.

The brothers refused, saying they would settle for $2 million, but they wanted the recognition by having a label, 'The Goldberg Air-Conditioner,' on the dashboard of each car in which it was installed.

Now old man Ford was more than just a little anti-Semitic, and there was no way he was going to put the Goldberg's name on two million Fords.

They haggled back and forth for about two hours and finally agreed on $4 million and that just their first names would be shown.

And so to this day, all Ford air conditioners show --
Lo, Norm, Hi, and Max -- on the controls.

Control yourself !!!
