THIS LADY IS AN INSPIRATION!
This 101 year old Michigan lady and her helper had her 1930 Packard on
display at the 2012 Glenmoor Gathering Councours Show near Canton, Ohio.
She stood and talked to all who came up to her. What a pleasant and peppy
Take notice in the video that she lays a shop rag on the running board to
step onto when she gets in and out of the car. After she is in the car, she
leans all the way down to the running board to get the rag. She is in great
physical shape for her age.
Age is just a number. Just because you are of a certain age doesn’t mean you are ready for the scrap heap. I wrote my book Simply Fantastic: Living Better On Less at the age of 63. I felt I had something to offer and it is selling very well which makes it even more worthwhile.
I found this list in the latest edition of the AARP Bulletin. It is a list of inventors that were of a mature age when they were struck with a bright idea.
Getting the idea from the meat packing industry Henry adapted the assembly line idea to suit the motor industry. He produced masses of vehicles and by 1914 his company had 48% of the market.
Trivia: He did not believe in accountants.
He invented the “Injector” razors but sold rights so he could concentrate on the electric idea. Schick, Dry Shaver Inc. began operating in 1930
Trivia: Accused President Franklin D. Roosevelt of taking up Canadian citizenship in 1935 to avoid income tax and inheritance laws.
In 1919 six years after designing and flying the worlds first multi engine airplane in Russia, his Native country, he migrated to the USA. There he designed the helicopter and flew what would be the standard for all others.
Trivia: His first helicopter was powered by rubber bands
In 1910 he invented “Multiplexing” the simultaneous transmission of multiple signals over one line. This was the groundwork for his invention of “wired radio,” later renamed it MUZAK.
Trivia: In 1908 worked with the Wright Brothers, and became one of the world’s first airplane passengers.
The idea came to him when a chocolate bar melted in his shirt pocket as he stood in front of a magnetron, the microwave tube used to power radar.
Trivia: received 150 patients but never finished elementary school.
Designed the first communications balloon satellite while working at Bell Telephone Laboratories. It led to the development of Telstar 1, launched by NASA in 1962. Relayed the first live television signals by satellite.
Trivia: Wrote science fiction stories under the pseudonym J.J. Coupling.
Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce asked Magee to solve problems caused by all day parkers in the business district. Thus the invention of the parking meter.
Trivia: Played a key role in exposing the Teapot Dome Bribery Scandal.
This is an article from Zen Habits which again is an excellent website and very inspirational on many subjects. this is one of them. Once again this site has a free newsletter which is worth joining.
Post written by Leo Babauta.
We’re several days into the New Year, and many of us are still basking in the glow of a fresh start.
Every year, January brings renewed optimism for change, for a better life, for a better you. And that’s a wonderful thing.
It’s wonderful, because this fresh start gives us a chance to reinvent our lives and ourselves. It allows us to reinvigorate ourselves, to shed the baggage of the previous year and do anything. Anything is possible!
That is a gift, my friends, and I suggest we make the most of this gift. Not just by creating and sticking to resolutions (here’s my guide for doing that), but by reinventing the way we live.
