And Then Some News

Hey folks, it's here! SMOERs is available from Amazon.com for only $14.95. And, too, check out the new website: smoers.com Day 92 of the book reads, "Do not judge books by their covers." And here is a delightful warning for you: On the cover of the book SMOERs---Self-Motivation, Optimism, Encouragement Rules: Daily Reminders for Outstanding Living there is a picture (thanks to Aime Inman-Cox) of a delicious s'more. Despite this tempting morsel, this is not a recipe or cooking book. It is not an instruction book about how to make s'mores, nor is there a single prescription, formula, or blueprint inside for the perfect s'more. There are 365 reminders and over 1600 quotations, and we know that once you read just a single day from the book, you will definitely want s'more!

Thursday’s essay, “Life’s lessons: Explore, dream, discover,” is an essay that celebrates our new SMOER’s book. We’ve saved it for more than three years just for this moment! It honors the role that anecdotes, phrases, quotations, and sayings play in our lives.

Thursday's And Then Some Essay preview

Life's lessons: Explore, dream, discover
by Richard L. Weaver II


Witty sayings have been incorporated into my writing simply because they add interest, entertainment and, hopefully, assist memory. A saying that I used in one of the speeches published in
Vital Speeches of the Day, was selected for inclusion in Reader’s Digest. From there it was picked up by Garborg’s of Bloomington, Minnesota, for inclusion as a saying on one of their “Cherished Thoughts” eternal calendars. Finally, it was chosen as the chapter-opening quotation in a wonderful book on humor by Edgar E. Willis entitled “How to be Funny on Purpose: Creating and Consuming Humor” (Amazon.com, 2005). The quotation reads, “One of the best things people can have up their sleeves is a funny bone.”
