Recently I had the opportunity to attend a conference for women in farming and small business. I expected the workshops on marketing and management but what I didn’t expect was an intimate forum in which several successful business women shared their stories of self doubt, faith, motherhood, natural disasters, community support…Continue Reading.
An adage (pronounced /ˈædɨdʒ/), or adagium (Latin), is a short but memorable saying which holds some important fact of experience that is considered true by many people, or that has gained some credibility through its long use.
Beggars can’t be choosers
Dollars to Donuts
killing two birds with one stone
going to hell in a handbasket
til the cows come home
Pennies make dimes and dimes make dollars.
Only the good die young.
Be careful what you wish for.
Never say never.
If the shoe fits wear it.
If something can’t go on forever one day it will stop
if you can’t take the heat get out of the kitchen
like a bat out of hell
like putting the cart before the horse
A rolling stone gathers no moss.
A watched pot never boils.
One in the hand is worth more than two in the bush.
That’s like robbing Peter to pay Paul.
The grass is always greener on the other side.
Don’t judge a book by its cover.
No news is good news.
When taking a pill, always read the bottle.
Sooner is better than later.
So until recently I’ve been stashing all of my recyclables in the kitchen and taking them to the recycle place at the farmer’s market. I had a really hard time coming up with the extra $30 it takes to buy into the recycling program in DeKalb county. I finally came up with the money that I really didn’t even have so that I could recycle at home and it is so much easier and I am able to recycle a lot more now. I got to thinking that there are probably lots and lots of people like me that don’t have an extra $30 lying around and the cost to recycle actually keeps them from doing it and the need for a non-profit charity is there. People would donate whatever amount they could afford and that $$ would go to buy recycle bins/accounts for people who can’t afford to buy one but would really like to…also I haven’t been able to come with a good name. Any ideas? Dollars to do…no, pennies for peaceful placing of recyclables…???
So this is the third or maybe its the forth bs blog start? I’ve lost count. But the point is we are attempting to make this thing work, the bleustockings blog that is. Here you can expect to find the secrets to life along with many other fascinating tid-bits. The truth is we don’t really know what the hell anyone is going to come up with but the need is here. Bleustockings is evolving into what theloveofpete and I originally intended it to be which is a magazine of sorts. Reading material for the inquisitive, off-beat, feminist desperately seeking her holy grail; courageously slaying the Dragon of Thou Shalt (to paraphrase good ol’ Joseph Campbell); and who’s not opposed to the occasional cheese puff sandwich washed down with an extra dry vodka martini or perhaps a mangomosa or two.
