Hey! There was an interesting segment on a local radio station that I heard on my way to work this morning. The DJ wanted their listeners to call in and share something that they had learned recently. The DJ told us this...on the gas gauge inside your car, there is a little diamond/triangle on the Fuel gauge...it is just at the bottom and is just beside the picture of a gas pump. and this symbol indicates which side of the car has the gas tank! So, if the symbol is on the left side, you fill up the gas on the left and the opposite would be true if it is on the right side. . When I asked some of my co-workers today, hardly any of them had noticed it either. Some of them laughed and said, hey, can't you just look at the car? HA! That's true, but it just goes to show that there are things in place to help us along our way if only we knew how to recognize them!
So....my question for you would be this.: Have you learned something as an adult that you could share on this blog? It would be great if it could be something really useful, something that folks could read and take away from this post and they will be very thankful for your great wisdom and knowledge!
For myself, the most startling thing that I have learned recently is this: I am learning to COOK by watching "Chopped" from the Food Network! Now, I know you might think that might be strange but it is true. It has really helped me to watch those professional chefs prepare the food that they are given, and to do so in a very short amount of time. For me, when I watch someone cook with something like shrimp, raisins, chickpeas and cauliflower and STILL make a decent meal out of it, then surely I can take good ingredients and create a fantastic meal! This is an on-going learning experience and you would think that I would be a great cook by now, but that is not the case, I promise you!
I have to say that I learn something new almost every day. Now, do I REMEMBER it? Ah, that is the question! That is the best thing about the internet for me, if there is something that I am curious about then, I only have to type in a few words into a search engine and I am on my journey to the discovery of something new.
And keep it clean, folks!
