2012 in review

I am not making any commitments that I will do better blogging this year than last.  However the mood came over me to post something. Partly because it sounded fun and partly because I have had a lot of people I don't know commenting to me about my blog.  This is for you friends, family and the creepy people I don't know who seem to have an uncomfortable interest in what I have to say.  

With 2012 winding down I have thought about the things that I learned this year.  The following are little bits of wisdom that I have collected from a variety of locations.  These little gems are all things that I learned this year or that were painfully reinforced so I would not forget them.
 ·         You can do anything you set your mind to when you have vision, determination, and an endless supply of expendable labor. I consider my children a real blessing in more ways than one.

·          I expected times like this - but I never thought they'd be so bad, so long, and so frequent.

·          Both can't be beautiful. It's me or the house

·         This was sent to me by one of my cousins here house is never clean, but she looks good.

·         There are No Stupid Questions. But there a LOT of Inquisitive Idiots.

·         Let's agree to respect each other's views, no matter how wrong yours may be. I am glad the election is behind us and a bit ticked off over the results. 

·         Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.  Is it bad that for the most part I don’t like people?

·         When you earnestly believe you can compensate for a lack of skill by doubling your efforts, there's no end to what you can't do.

·         When the going gets tough, the tough get going. The smart left a long time ago. (What are you doing standing there by yourself?)

·         Minds are like parachutes. Just because you've lost yours doesn't mean you can borrow mine.

·         When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the Earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much hosed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.

·         No please don’t eat me I have a wife and kids eat them. –Homer (I love Homer he is Smrt)

·         The tooth fairy only teaches small children to sell their body parts for money.

·         Sometimes the best solution to morale problems is just to fire all of the unhappy people.  Then there are times that releasing the whole ward from their callings seems like a good idea…oh wait I don’t have to worry about that anymore.

·         I think animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

·         The only reason people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.

·         After twelve years of therapy my psychiatrist said something that brought tears to my eyes. He said, "No hablo ingles Mr. Anderson."

·         What you call dog with no legs? Don't matter what you call him, he ain't gonna come.

·         Duct tape is like the force. It has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the world together.

·         Most people have a bad memory.  How many of you realized this is the exact same post I ended 2011 with.  I said I would start blogging again I never said it would be new material.

On to 2013 for bigger and better things.  Or at least a consistent forward motion with a slightly upward direction.

Also this is a great place to put links to my company website online so I have more connections for the search engines to find:


  1. i read this blog outloud to ken and kept commmenting, 'i think he's said that before.' i don't have a bad memory and yo uare still lame.

  2. I don't have a bad memory. I wasn't reading your blog in 2011. Ha! Jokes on you!

  3. Brother Anderson rocks! I love lame jokes!
