Your result for The Perception Personality Image Test...
NBPC - The Daydreamer
Nature, Background, Big Picture, and Color
You perceive the world with particular attention to nature. You focus on the hidden treasures of life (the background) and how that fits into the larger picture. You are also particularly drawn towards the colors around you. Because of the value you place on nature, you tend to find comfort in more subdued settings and find energy in solitude. You like to ponder ideas and imagine the many possibilities of your life without worrying about the details or specifics. You are in tune with all that is around you and understand your life as part of a larger whole. You are a down-to-earth person who enjoys going with the flow.
The Perception Personality Types:

Make up your mind to be happy. Learn to find pleasure in simple things.
Make the best of circumstances. No one has everything and everyone has something of sorrow.
Don’t take yourself too seriously.
Don’t let criticism worry you. You can’t please everybody.
Don’t let your neighbors set your standards; be yourself.
Do things you enjoy doing but stay out of debt.
Don’t borrow trouble. Imaginary things are harder to bear than actual ones.
Since hate poisons the soul, do not cherish enmities and grudges. Avoid people who make you unhappy.
Have many interests. If you can’t travel, read about places.
Don’t hold post-mortems or spend time brooding over sorrows and mistakes.
Do what you can for those less fortunate than yourself.
Keep busy at something. A very busy person never has time to be unhappy.

And further insult to our property. Even the pickup was not safe from maurauding geese during a recent rain.

Here's the interesting info. This year is the earliest Easter any of us will ever see the rest of our lives! And only the most elderly of our population have ever seen it this early (95 years old or above!). And none of us have ever, or will ever, see it a day earlier! Here's the facts:
1) The next time Easter will be this early (March 23) will be the year 2228 (220 years from now). The last time it was this early was 1913 (so if you're 95 or older, you are the only ones that were around for that!).
2) The next time it will be a day earlier, March 22, will be in the year 2285 (277 years from now). The last time it was on March 22 was 1818. So, no one alive today has or will ever see it any earlier than this year!

I thought I would share a few family links from Grandma Walter's family. This is the home page for one of my cousin Mary. I saw here when in Portland, and she promised to share pictures with me. Mary and Bert Evens Home Page and Mary and Bert's Christmas letter are here for your enjoyment. Pictures she took during the reunion at Ray and Jo's house are here. One person i didn't see was my cousin David, and he and his son Drew are in this picture. So mom and dad, I hope you enjoy looking through these pictures too!
It's been bitter cold here, as in most of the country. It was 2 8 last night, up from 19 and 16 the two nights before. We are supposed to go up to 69 on Monday, and in the mid 50's today, so we are warming up some. Probably a temporary thaw! We are still very dry, with not much chance of rain till late next week.
Yesterday I visited with Becky a few hours. She has been busy sewing pants for Jake from wool sweaters and knit tops. She is doing great! I played with the kids, and she and Jake took a mini nap, right there on the couch. Zack showed me the in and outs of Webkinz , and Maddie drew for me and told me all about Nutcracker and who danced.
