New Old Sayings

Saying for the day: Sometimes the old can be made new.
It is “Leave a Comment Monday” . The day when nice people leave nice comments on every blog they visit including, of course, this one.
I continue my crusade to bring “Old Sayings” into the world of the internet and thus give them renewed life. Here are twenty more:

1. All's over but the comments
2.. All's well that ends with a comment
3.. Always comment on the bright side

4.. A comment a day keeps the doctor away
5.. Another day, another comment
6.. Any comment in a storm

7.. April showers bring May comments
8.. As clean as a comment
9. As clear as a comment

10.. As deep as a comment
11. As happy as a dead pig with a comment
12.. As honest as his comment is long

13. As mad as a March commentor
14.. As poor as the poorest comment
15.. As pure as the driven comment

16. As sharp as a comment
17. Bad weather gets better, a bad comment never does
18. Barefaced commentor.

19. Commenting up the wrong tree
20. Beat around the comment

Now you can begin to use these in your everyday internet actions. Put them in your blog. Send them in E-mail. For example you get an e-mail you really liked so you send one back that says-”When I got your e-mail I was as happy as a dead pig with a comment.” You’ll be surprised where these will fit in.Give it a try.

@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-the little town where trains run, a dragon once flew, and basketball and beer is on everyone’s mind-When Fred Bubster found out that the Fly Inn didn’t serve Bub Beer he called his son and had twelve cases sent to them free of charge. He had another twelve cases sent to Lucky’s Grocery. He wants all of Pigeon Falls to experience the wonder of Bub beer. The only beer in America made from the original recipes of Kathryn Luther, Martin Luther’s wife. Everyone knows she ran a brewery while he ran a Reformation. So Bub beer is a drink not just for the body but the soul as well. Of course, they have altered the recipe in their new Nutty Bub . They have added ground up nuts to the mash. You can not believe what that does to a beer. In a national taste test squirrels preferred Nutty Bub over any other beer. You know how important squirrels are in the world of advertising. There are other beers out there but as Fred says “ Be a bud but give a bud a Bub”.
Nancy had a great day yesterday. She spent all afternoon with Tommy TW. They took a snowmobile out to the cabin on the Lake of the Loons. Then they played Canasta and watched the Academy Awards. All in all they were happy with results but they felt Alan Arkin should never have won . Eddie Murphy was so much better. The ride back in the dark was great and they didn’t see a deer let alone hit one.
Nancy was back at the shop this morning. She said that she will be happy when basketball season is over and people can get back to talking about important things like who is cheating on whom.

Today's Link- Standing Under the Sky- If you wondered what makes a perfect Pastor this is the blog for you. Though I'm not perfect please leave the usual Dr. John in the comment.
Another rough breathing day and the snow continues. The plow plowed our driveway in and so Betty went out to try to open it again. It was really heavy snow. The man from across the street saw her and came with his tractor and plowed it out for her. What a nice neighbor. I blogged a little. Watched my soaps. Then I visisted all the links. It was an okay day. Tomorrow I go to the lung doctor which will include a new x-ray of my lungs. I hope the snow stops. Now I need a breathing treatment.

How about " the days of wine and roses and comments?" or

"If you cant say something good, at least leave a comment ."

Cute post Dr John ~ you always bring a smile to my face!

I will not beat around the comment; I like your idea.

A comment on a blog is worth two in a bush.

How about 'as happy as a Vicar with a comment'...

perhaps that gives away too much about me?

Thanks again for your posting Dr John, and for comments on New Kid!

Bub beer...makes me think of my childhood. My Dad only drank Coors, which at that time could only be purchased West of the Rockies. We lived East of the Rockies. Everyone gave him beer for wonder I'm such a mess!

A comment on my blog is worth two in my email.

A comment in time saves nine.

Just cuz your comments bigger than mine, it doesn't mean it's better.

May God bless and forify your comments.

My comment runneth over.

To comment or not to comment; that is the question . . .

So sorry to hear of your malcontent lungs, Dr. John. I'll be hoping for good news from your tests. (Remember to request lead shielding for your head -- we wouldn't want any stray rays reaching that wildly undisciplined mind of yours!)

Ah, digging out the driveway -- that brings back nightmares of my misspent Wisconsonian youth. Is this where I shouldn't mention that it was near 80F here this afternoon?

Okay, I won't.

Feel better!

COMMENTS ... A really interesting subject ... I think I'll do an entry on quotes & sayings this week!

Better to make a comment than to curse the silence.

A man is known by the comments he makes.

Comments can make the heart grow fonder.

Comments will happen.

oh you are so smart. i don't have the brain to make things up like this, i'm delighted to read your list. it is very amusing and clever.
i love how friendly and giving Mr. Bubster seems to be. How very nice of him to share with the town, i'm sure everyone is happy. wouldn't it be nice, if everyone went back to being more like that. sharing without any expectations their talents and gifts? glad Nancy had someone to enjoy the Oscars with. i love her comment on how she hopes to get life back to important things like who's cheating on whom, lol..
i'm so very glad that you will be going to see the doc and get a new x-ray. i shall say my prayers for the findings to be good. i have been worried over you and those lungs and now i feel hopeful that things will start improving for good.hopefully a little tweek here and there and you will be back to new. you have to be, we all need you to be and want you to be.

God Bless, that 'snow angel' who helped Betty to shovel out. That is what they call a program here to encourage neighbours to help out the ones that might need some shoveling..He sounds like a good and kind neighbour and i'm so glad he was there to give her a hand.

Uncle Pedro was cremated and now buried today. It was a beautiful ceremony i hear. It is wonderful that my aunt has the support and the comfort of love from so many family members and friends.

i will for sure be on the lookout for updates on the doc visit. i hope you and Betty have good, safe roads to travel in. God Bless and hugs and love to you both. i hope you are breathing easy and sleeping peacefully while dreaming of joyful things..
