EZMiscellaneous Thoughts and Ramblings for the week.
EZQuote of the month: "My shoes are worth more than your house - Ric Flair
I just finished reading Walter Isaacson's Leonardo Da Vinci. 

A good read with the following memorable quote:

"As a well-spent day brings a happy sleep, so a well-employed life brings a happy death."

And I increased my vocabulary by and least one word

sfumato - "without lines or borders, in the manner of smoke or beyond the focus plane" as described by Leonardo, most prominent in his painting of the Mona Lisa.
It is the Christmas Season, and I'm getting lots of emails from Amazon and eBay and many other retailers about all of there great deals.  Hurry, buy now to save, save, and save even more baby!

But remember, studies have shown that spending that yields the greatest happiness is the kind that buys you time or experiences, not things.




However, look at the Amazon Lightning Deal I just couldn't pass up.

Exercise Ball - Anti Burst Tested yoga ball Supports 2200lbs,Includes Exercise Resistance Loop Bands & Hand Pump for Home, Balance, Gym, Core Strength, Yoga, Fitness, Pilates

Actually, I've been thinking about swapping out my desk chair at work for an exercise ball for a week or so.  Now I'll get to actually try it out.  I think it'll be a good complement for stand-up/sit-down desk at work.  I typically stand up at my desk before lunch, and sit down after lunch.  I'll remind myself to take a picture and post it next week.




I recently upgraded to Adobe Elements Organizer 2018 for managing my photos and here is the photo of the week.
This picture was taken on the flying bridge of BooYah this summer.  We only caught one crab that day but we did have a great time aboard Bill & Susan's boat.
Of course, any time you get to surf it's a good day too.
