Life is better

The first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: Decide what you want.
Ben Stein

Life is better today. Mainly because I decided to fight. I have always kind of laid down the banner so to speak in the past and just gave up. Not so this time. I may not win the war but I have won this battle. I have extreme problems with self confidence and so I always see myself as the loser. Some people will think I am stupid to fight this was but I don't. I know some people are very confused as to what it is I am fighting. If you want to know I will tell you in private.

We may have the problem fixed with the tractor. with one small problem still on going. Cliff might be able to help with this one. What is the best way to fix a small pinhole leak in the gas tank? It is a Farmall Super C.

Gas prices seem to have stabilized around here lately. It has been holding steady at around $3.87 a gallon.  I told Pat the other day that I do not believe it will matter who gets in as  president the gas prices will not be going down.  He goes on that they need to do what they did back in the 70's with the oil embargo. Sure why not, gas prices did not go down then nor will they now. Our dependence on gas has to break. As long as cars get low mileage we are screwed. The American automakers fight raising mandatory higher gas mileage on vehicles.  They fight tighter emissions standards, they fight everything. 40 miles per gallon is not unrealistic for them. Lower speed limits work too(and helps in other areas too -accident rates etc.) I also told pat that I believe gas will easily be $7 a gallon by 2010 and 2 days later I read a report where the experts say the same thing. Does that make me an expert or what?
Ok I have to get a load of clothes out of the washer and put it in the dryer. Then start another load.
Life will be good if I have to kill to make it so.



  1. Celeste I do not know what you are fighting and it is up to you whether you wish to share with me.  But having a fighting spirit is good, giving in is not. Well done.

  2. Celeste....we have to take a stand...for whatever it is...our opinion and stand my mom said to me one time..."everybody gets a vote...some folks vote counts more than other"....and that doesn't mean our vote is worthless...just stand strong girl...don't back I don't even know wht you are fighting...but boy am I glad I am on your side LOLOL...God Bless...hugs Ora in KY

  3. Hi Celeste...I am not sure what you are fighting. If you'd like to share, I'm here to listen.  I've been fighting a depression. Trying to keep busy and occupied is helping...but it's a demon that won't go totally away.
    I agree with you about what you say about gas, and automakers...etc. I see it hitting $7/gallon before 2010. It's already $4.60 here. We're well on our way. I don't drive anywhere anymore except to work and to do small errands.
    Hope you have a good night.

  4. I am sorry that it took me so long to comment. I hope that whatever you are fighting against is losing. I will say a prayer for you. Gas prices here are about 3.99 a gallon and holding steady. You are right about the gas problems. I hope it gets better but I doubt it...hugs, Christine

  5. I am so glad you are feeling better. I agree with you about the gas . Looks like all it does is keep going up and up. I thought maybe it would be 5.00 a gallon by July 4th. Sad . Take care .


  6. Life will get better it always does with determination and will power.
    Good for you!

  7. Celeste,  Glad you are feeling better.  Life CAN be hard sometimes.  Stick with it and know that we are all on your side.                                 Marlene

  8. I don't know what you are battling, but I am glad you are fighting and not just giving in. I'm also glad that you are feeling better!

  9. I know that if you belive that you need to fight to make life more bearable....then I am behind you!
    Hope things get lots better.

  10. I'm glad you're fighting, whatever it is, and that life is better today.  I hope it continues to be so.  I agree about the gas prices.  It is $4.29 here for a gallon -- went up on Thursday.

  11. Celeste, sometimes we do have to step up and fight for what we believe in ... even if it is difficult for us to do.  Here in your corner as you press on.

  12. I must admit I am confused a bit and was going to ask but wasnt sure it was any of my
