Time is so precious-do not waste it.

Good Morning

I am in a very Happy mood  this Monday morning.

If you are not write and tell me about your troubles, I will try to cheer you up and get you smiling again. Some times a smile will do the job and some times it takes more, a  cup of that Starbucks Sumatra x bold. But what will really cheer me up is for some one to say to me." I love you Dad " Try that out today.

I have not made any plans for this day, I do know that it will include the Hyperbanic Oxygen Therapy treatment that get started at 10 a/m. I don't want to ever that is has done so much for me, and just to see the big smile on Sherry's face when I walk in does me as much good as the treatment.

    We do not want to ever forget this " Time is so precious-do not waste it"

    Good Morning.

    I am in a very HAPPY mood this morning.

    I always say that Monday is the best day of the week for me I am about to change my mind, I think that it should be Saturday. For one thing that I am writing at the moment are for you to read on this Saturday and Sunday, and then after a day of rest and our usual Sunday morning meeting I will be back here on Monday refreshed and ready to give you a fresh up to date journal. DAD


    Dear Dad, Ms. Mary, and sweet Prince:

    Prince always has the best ideas ;)

    That is very interesting information about the HBOT! It is also used in the treatment of burn survivors' skin, I know. Some years back, out here in L.A., there were O2 cafes where people went to breathe pure oxygen. I have never been to one, but those who enjoyed them seemed to derive a lot of beneficial effects from them.

    It sounds like you are having some nice early Autumn weather. We are, too, finally! Wishing you all a good evening and sending love and PURRS from Jamaka and fams <3


    You have heard of the " The last rose of summer " well this is what MARY found when she was out checking our rose believe  it or not in the rain. Our roses have been very good this season and we hope to have more in the spring to show you.

    We do not go for the Saturday oxygen treatment, we do need one day to sleep late, and to also get ready for our Meeting. We are expecting a few guest this afternoon, tea and cookies I imagine.

    The coffee has been  ready for a little while and I have been sipping on it as I write, shame on me, come on sit down and I will pour, now don't that taste and smell good. Dad.

    I do keep these Saturdays entries open until late afternoon, I don't want to miss anything interesting that might com in. If you have anything that you want to show just send it to DAD at and he will take care of it for you.

    I have enjoyed this little visit so much, and if not before, you will see me back here early Monday morning.

    I am sending my Love and Best wishes to this cold, cruel and troubled world.

    Begin the Day with God, go through the day with God, conclude the day with God.

    There is never a wrong time to do a right thing. Dad.

    Good Morning

    My mood is Happy again today, I hope that it will remain that way all this day.

    I hope that you will agree with me that I should go very slow this morning after all of my troubles yesterday, typing and trying your best to produce just one smile for a few hours, and then see it all go up in black smoke. I do not know who to thanks or should I say blame for this, maybe old Dad, he is to blame for a lot that happens here, but he can't help it he is old and very near then end of the journey 98 plus years, I know that you will understand, you always have in the past

    Be low is the weather report at Dads Tomato Garden this morning at 3:20 A.M.Is that to early for you, not for me, I like to get an early start, because it takes a long time for me to get started doing nothing.

    I am not going to say anything about business or money this week , That will soon pass away, there are things more valuable than money . Have you found that out yet. DAD

    I am feeling good this morning I have " No complaints" I just need to get that two hour oxygen Therapy over, get home and into my work clothes then I will feel comfortable . Now don't get me wrong I would rather miss my dinner as to miss this Therapy, I can't explain the good that I am receiving. But I am sorry that all this early work is hard on Mary, you all know Mary I could not do anything without her. Thanks Mary. DAD

    How to make a good speech, be Sincere , Be Brief and be seated. DAD

    and I like this one -

    " People who are resting on their laurels are wearing them on the wrong end. DAD

    I want to give credit to " A Fathers Book for the two right above.

    This is enough for today, I want to say this before I run away.

    I have talked to you a lot about telling  some one every day that you love them, now husbands this is for you, before you leave for work please tell your wife that you Love her, You never know what those word will do for your future. Dad.

    Something just came to me  when LaVerne and I were first married she packed a little bag lunch for me every day, and wrapped in one of those sandwiches was a little note which said " I love you" sweet memories.

    TIME IS so precious -do not waste it


    Hello to my good friends everywhere,

    Well, my completed Blog Entry for today was online early this morning until about 9 a.m. and then "Poof!" It vanished. So here I am back again at nearly 2:30 p.m. writing today's entry again. I know it was on for a while because before I left for my Hyperbaric therapy, I had gotten several comments.

    Below is some more information about the therapy I am receiving for my foot problem.

       Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

    What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

    Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a mode of medical treatment that allows a patient to breathe 100% oxygen while sitting comfortably in a chamber at pressures greater than normal atmospheric (sea level).

    The air we breathe is 21% oxygen, 79% nitrogen and minor amounts of other gases. Our bodies are usually able to heal themselves with a normal oxygen level, but in certain conditions extra oxygen is required. During hyperbaric (“hyper” means increased and “baric” relates to pressure) therapy, the pressure is increased to 2 - 3 times that of sea-level and you breathe 100% oxygen. The breathing of pure oxygen under pressure causes a much larger (10-15 times normal) amount of oxygen to be dissolved in the blood and, subsequently, the rest of the body. The extra oxygen is used by the body in many ways. Depending on the underlying problem, the actions can include improved wound healing by reduction of swelling, infection control and the stimulation of new blood vessel growth. The increase of oxygen in the blood allows for medical conditions such as non-healing diabetic wounds to heal when they otherwise would not.

    What conditions are typically treated with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

    Common medical conditions treated with HBOT include chronic, non-healing diabetic foot wounds, compromised skin grafts/flaps, chronic bone infection and bone/tissue injury resulting from radiation therapy.

    What is a typical treatment plan?

    Hyperbaric treatments are 2 hours long, and are performed on a daily basis, for 6 days per week. The necessary number of treatments is decided on an individual basis, but typically 4 to 7 weeks of treatments are required for the desired healing to occur.

    Information above from pamphlet "A Patient's Guide to Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy"

    "I am currently receiving the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy And I am very pleased with the help I am receiving. I highly recommend Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy."  ...Ray White

    Some of you have asked me to post this poem again,written by my daughter, Mary.


    Snowflakes and Dear Ones©

    Gentle snowflakes fall upon me,

    Melting fast upon my face,

    There’s no way that I can keep them,

    If in my heart they have no place.

    Very fragile, very special,

    Are these snowflakes from the sky

    They remind me of my dear ones,

    As they gracefully flutter by.

    Scarcely do I see their beauty,

    Barely do their rare imprints

    Fix themselves upon my fingers,

    Till I’m wondering where they went.

    In this world so temporary,

    Filled with ephemeral things,

    Surely everything is fleeting,

    Flying ‘way on speeding wings.

    Like the snowflakes that are melting,

    When they touch my skin so warm,

    Yes, myself, my friends, my family,

    We’re on that solemn journey home.

    Snowflakes can’t be kept in bottles,

    You can’t grasp them as they fly,

    You just have to dearly love them,

    As they slowly flutter by.

    We cannot keep what can’t be held,

    And just as snowflakes disappear,

    Often on life’s lonely landscape

    We’re deprived of what is dear.

    Yet no one really leaves us,

    Though we’re far, so far apart,

    As long as we believe in snowflakes,

    And keep them always in our hearts.

    By Mary L White


    Now I need to do something very important, and I think most of you will agree with me that it is important for ol' Dad. Can you guess what it is?  You're right.  Get a little nap. I think Prince will think it's a good idea for him, too.  Don't you?


    I might come back later today, but if not hope to see you Friday A.M. if my life is spared. Sending my Love to you.

    It seems like coffee is the only thing that I can think about at this early hour in the morning, and thou know with out asking that it will be Starbulks Sumatra x bold, what else. If this is to early for you I will have a fresh pot ready when you crawl 0ut of that warm bed.

    Good morning

    My mood is Happy today.

    If yours is not we need to do something about that. We all need to start this day with faith that it is going to be a good day for us. We all need more faith and we should pray to our God every morning that he would increase it. There would be a lot more peace in our lives, and we would not be running around in circles doing nothing, and no more unhappy moods, "Life is so short-do not waste it" use every moment of it living for others, then you will have no regrets when the sun goeth  down, which may not be very long for some of us, it is hard for me to realize that God has in mercy giving me 98 plus years to spend in this world, Oh, I have wasted so much of it, I plead for mercy.

    I am so pleased with the way I feel these mornings when I get in here to write, I just feel full of pep, a few weeks ago I cold not honestly say that, bring on the tomato season, I am ready to go. SMILE.  DAD

    I have a list here in my office that is headed. " Never do any of these thing today, You can do them tomorrow" well I need to get busy and clean that list up a little anyway, tomorrow never seems to come.

    One thing that I hope to begin today, I am sure that you have noticed that we do not have our usual lighted Cams, the ones in the past have not been very good, but we have something new that I think you will enjoy. Please give us a little time, You know that it is cold out there.

    Any way they will be nice to have when the tomato season arrives.

    Have you told anyone that you Love them this morning, well I am doing that right now, sending my love in all directions from Dad's Tomato Garden. See you in the a.m.

    I am sorry that I did not get back to you. I am typing on a new wire less key board that we bought, and I will be using it on my journal in the morning after we arrived home after the oxygen treatment, all went well and I am feeling real good.

    Good Morning.

    My mood is happy on this nice Monday morning , what are you fussing about ?

    Smiles are scarce around here and it being Monday morning don't help any. I thought that little owl flying right at you might make you grin at least. Come on I can't produce smiles with out your help.

    (slow motion...beautiful)

    There are times when nothing but a cup of that Starch Sumatra x bold coffee will bring a real big smile, and I think that this is the morning, I see a lot of you standing around, come on push in and pour and drink. Dad

    Don't let what you can not do interfere with what you can do.

    Sunshine. High 23C. Winds WSW at 5 to 10 mph.

    Mainly sunny. High 74F. Winds WSW at 5 to 10 mph.

    The weather looks good to me this morning, but I don't know if it will get me outside or not, I do have a lot of work to do inside, maybe  I will just do that, I know that I would have a better chance of a nap with Prince if I do. Smile.

    Dad these are good.

    Here are some really good thoughts that someone sent to us: Mary

    *Matt. 22; those invited wouldn't come to the wedding because they wouldn't change their plans…but those who came from the highways likely changed theirs to come.

    *I can be a good person without prayer but I can't become like Jesus without prayer.

    God is unlimited. He could have created everything in one second, if He chose. But He chose to make things through a process. And what He’s doing in our lives, His spiritual work is a process. Gen. 1:2-5; the world didn’t look like much to start with, but He didn't leave it that way. God can turn on the light, but we have to respond. V. 14-16 light was given a source. The moon is a reflector. The moon is like the Law; it ruled in the absence of the Son. It was a tremendous help, but it didn't have the warmth & light of the sun (Son). The sea—there’s a fascinating world under the sea, but in the next life there will be no more sea. We don’t want to be too preoccupied with things that will have no part in the world to come.

    *In the old Law, those who reaped the fields were to leave the corners unattested for the poor and strangers. How big of a corner were they to leave? There are no specifics given. The corner would be as large as the heart of love the farmer had.

    Many eyes saw the crucified Christ, but only anointed eyes saw the resurrected Christ.

    Thanks Mary, I enjoyed the thoughts very much, DAD

    Sunshine. High 19C. Winds light and variable.

    Sunny skies. High 67F. Winds light and variable.

    Yesterday I received our standings in this world of blogs,  Here they are, 3213 entries , 4150 cities and 111 countries. Now here is a good place to advertise your products or service, Dad will be pleased to tell you what a bargain this is.

    You will find me on Face Book now.DAD

    Over in our visitors   list this  morning   it shows a visitor from Taipei, Tai-pie / Tat makes me smile

    Subject: Few: His Eye is on the sparrow

    Birds are so fragile and vulnerable.  These amazing photos captured a drama with two of these little creatures that is every bit as poignant and heart-wrenching as any human story.  Kudos to the photographer.  The newspapers that carried these photos sold out in every country.

    A female bluebird was hit by a car as she swooped low across the road, and the condition was soon fatal


    Her male mate brought her food and attended her with love and compassion.


    He brought her food again, but was shocked to find her dead.


    He tried to move her - a rarely seen effort.


    Aware his mate was dead and would never come back to him again, he cried out with adoring love . . .  and stood beside her with sadness and sorrow. 


    Millions of people were touched after seeing these photos in America , Europe, Australia , and even India .  The photographer sold these pictures for a nominal fee to the most famous newspaper in France .  All copies of that edition sold out on the day these pictures were published.
    And many people think animals and birds don't have brains or feelings.

    You have just witnessed love and sorrow felt by God's creatures.

    The Bible says that God knows when a sparrow falls.

    Imagine how much He cares for us!
    Live simply, love generously, care deeply, give fully.

    If we don't stand for something , you'll fall for anything

    From Fathers Book of wisdom

    This above I so touching, I have  searched to see if there is a copy write on this, to no avail . If there is, will you email DAD and it will be removed at once. white6`       DAD

    I have been thinking of how much of my time is spent each day on things conserving my health, and is it worth it.  I spend 10 hours each week on the oxygen treatment, and many things each day, After all I am 98 years old and we know that my time here can not be very much longer. But I do want to spend the time that is left living for others, so if I am healthy maybe I can do a better job.

    The smallest act of kindness is worth more than grandest intentions.

    From a Fathers Book of Wisdom.

    I write this journal each Saturday morning for you to view on Saturday and Sunday, and if all goes well I will see you  Monday with a cup of Starbucks Sumatra x bold in my hand and  smile on my face.

    On this day we do not stop writing until late in the afternoon, waiting on all the interesting things that might be sent to me, so if what you need is not on this, just hold your horses it will be later in the morning.

    Sending all my Love to you. Have you told any one that you Love them today? If not do it now.

    Time is so precious- do not waste it

    Good Morning

    As you can see and hear Jim, Mary and I went to the smoky mountains yesterday after my oxygen treatment .I wish that you could all been with us. It was a beautiful day, just real nice weather for the Smokiest, and I was feeling so much better as you can see by the short video. We did not go all the way to the top but where we were the trees are starting to turn to a beautiful color and will be good this week. We plan to go back.

    Read these Memoirs above and you will see what a rough man that he is.

    Chose a job that you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life,  Dad.

    These two sayings came from a little booklet called " A Fathers Book of Wisdom?

    If anyone finds any violation of copy rights do let me know and I will correct it at once DAD

    This  is is all until my treatments are over, and then I can see a little nap before I write any more to remind you off my books, Oreo, Chewy and about my good advertising plan, plus a lot more on the side panel. and to remind you that I do love you

    Be true today, let not tomorrow  with anxious  fears becloud thy soul. be true today fret not sorrow thy cares up on the savour roll.

    Time is so precious- I do not intend to waste any of it living for myself today.

    Good Morning,

    Yes I am writing a little later on this Saturday morning, I decided to get a little extra  rest and I am going to do this more often, I hope that my snoring did not keep you awake.

    Treasure the love that you have above  all. It will survive long after your gold and good health have vanished.

    I like to have something to make you Smile in the early morning, I think this below will do the job, it did for me yesterday so I decided to try it this morning. DAD

    Dad's Memoirs # 1
     Dad's Memoirs #  2
    Feel free to read my memoirs , I am not ashamed of them, you will find out lots about this old 98 year old grumpy man. He is getting worse every day, just ask any of his readers if he has any left.

    I said above that I do not write a journal on Sunday, this is what I do, I write this one #3207 today and it is for you to read Saturday and Sunday and then if all is well I will have a fresh new one on Monday morning, I hope.  You know that  Dad is getting old he might not be here on Monday.

    As usual I do not close this journal until late in the after noon, so don't smile you are not, I said yesterday about hobbling in and some thought that was funny, well I want to tell you that my hobbling  is better this morning . Oxygen treatment is doing what  Dr Hall said they would do. SMILE,  DAD

    We do not intend to violate any ones copy right material, if you think that I have please write me at and  I Will correct it at once. DAD

    I do not like mention money on the week end, but the expenses do keep on going. It cost a lot just to grease these wagon wheels, but old Rock and Pete refuse to go if I don't do that. So that is why I am offering advertising space in this world wide read journal and at a bargain price. email Dad at and get a quote, you will be surprised.

    I did not have a proof reader this morning, I am sure you  will find many errors.

    I will be back all through the day.,  I am sending  my love, yes I mean  you. Where ever you are.
